random: class rings?
Just a passing thought from this morning’s metro and elevator ride: How old is too old to still be wearing a class ring? I’ve seen this mostly–and I say that, but it’s really like 100%–on men.
Obviously there are no rules to this, but is there a point at which you say, “Ok, time to put that away?” I’m all for jewelry as a form of self-expression or in some cases… bling. But when you shake hands with someone or are in a meeting with them and you look at their hand, I’m pretty sure the last thing they want you thinking is… “He went to Jostens!!”*
* Jostens** also makes championship sports rings and even Super Bowl rings, but for most of us they’re still that little fold out brochure you pored over during your senior [oops, junior] year.
** They also have one of the shortest wikipedia entries I’ve ever seen for a U.S. company.
