The first public institution in the United States of America was the University of Alabama. Founded in 1831, it is reputed to be the largest and oldest public institution. The former president of the States, G. H. Denny, tagged the university as “The Capstone” which signified that the university was at the helm of the public-school system in the United States of America.
University of Alabama started a lot of traditions years back which are still practiced in the University. One of the main traditions is the University of Alabama Class Ring. The students are given a ring in front of their relatives which they cherish as a souvenir.
How did it all start?
An alumnus of the university, called Emily Huskinson came up with the idea of introducing an additional touch to her ring by customizing it with a diamond studded band to fit around her ring while attending her brothers ring ceremony back in 2006. On receiving her own ring in 2011, she decided to redesign the ring to add her personality to it.
After initial doubt and reconsideration, soon her idea took shape into business and she patented three ring wrap designs to hit the markets.
Even though she wanted to be the only girl with the customized ring, her “all or nothing” attitude pushed her to embark on the journey that led her to her company, RingWraps. With the help of the president of a famous jewelry company who was also an alumnus of the same university, she started to build her company to celebrate university of Alabama rings.
Why opt for Ringwraps?
RingWraps provide fine quality and intricate jewelry that is customized for each of its customers. The mere idea of personalizing her own ring grew into a huge successful business as more people accepted RingWraps as the way of embracing the tradition of university of Alabama rings.
