Jostens

JOSTENS Visit Site

Jostens is one of the more recognizable names in the school jewelry and memorabilia space, and is a huge presence in this market. Jostens has 13 facilities across North America including several in Canada making it one of the biggest companies in this market. They are widely known for their production of customizable high school and college rings, but like some of the other larger players in this market they also offer a variety of other products related to graduation. These include yearbooks, announcements and cards, school apparel, caps and gowns and other types of jewelry such as tags and pendants. Jostens also offers rings for other professions like police and military, as well as rings for sports championships and even fantasy sports.

The Jostens website is attractive, modern looking and easy to navigate, but some of the features were a little less user friendly compared to some other sites we have visited. Customers pick their school at the top of the first page and then the site directs them to choose from the high-level categories like clothing and jewelry. Choosing class jewelry, we were directed to a page with 126 different options. Here we see men's rings, women's rings, as well as pendants, tags and other jewelry options for the selected school all mixed in one list. Users can sort by price and there is a filter on the side to narrow the search by gender or ring style. This allows users to find what they are looking for, but the interface was a bit harder to organize that other sites we reviewed.

There are no bargain options at Jostens. We sorted the class rings and the very cheapest option started at $192. This is more than the bargain option at most of the other school rings companies we have reviewed. Still, as we reviewed the other options most of the rings seemed reasonably competitively with the other large school jewelry companies, perhaps a bit on the high side depending on the options. For example, when we chose the 18k gold option on one of the basic ring types the price shot up to $1500, higher than other 18k gold rings we have seen.

We really like the customizability interface here. Once a customer chooses a ring type and stone, Jostens patented Design-a-Side program allows users to select from a predictably enormous list of designs for the two side panels of the ring. As users select the options, a picture of the ring is updated real time, so they can see exactly what the ring will look like. This was a nice feature we hadn't seen at many of the other similar sites.

As with most of the other custom ring makers, Jostens promises a delivery time of 6-8 weeks from time of order. We did see some reviews that said the product arrived sooner than 6 weeks, but we also saw some negatives reviews from Jostens customers.

Limoges

LIMOGES Visit Site

Limoges Jewelers is a jewelry seller that offers a custom class ring product online. Like Kay, Limoges does not specialize in class rings, but offers it as a part of their overall product line. There is actually a small section for graduation gifts on the class ring page yearbooks.

On the main Limoges website there is a link to their customizable class ring page. The look and feel of the page is a fairly standard web shopping page, with the number of items listed at the top and then filters and sort options for users to narrow down the options. On the class ring page, there are 185 different types of customizable class rings. This is a lot of options compared to some of the other class ring sites, and likely due to the larger inventory of jewelry that a company like Limoges has compared to the class ring specialists.

The cost at Dunham is quite low compared to most of the other class ring companies we reviewed. There are rings here for as low as $39.99 that can be customized with a basic text like the name of the school and the graduation year. The highest priced basic ring we saw was less than $400 so Limoges is catering to the bargain shoppers.

Perhaps one of the reasons the cost structure at Limoges is so low is due to the most basic customization system we have seen. Instead of selecting from a list of high schools and colleges provided on the website like we see at so many of the class ring specialists, the user manually types the name of the school into a text box. The image of the selected ring is on the left so you can see the text as it will appear on the ring, but we think this system is ripe for typos and mistakes that could make it to production of the ring.

For stone selection, the 12 birthstone options are available, but there is no option to select a certain cut of stone like so many other class ring sites offer. Then for any of the rings that offer side designs, we found the selection to be quite small. The basic sport and academic categories are there, but within each category we didn't see as many variations as we are used to seeing.

Most of the customized rings say they will ship in 6-8 weeks, which is fairly standard with personalized jewelry. We saw some consumer reviews saying their orders actually took longer than this, and some others that noted unhelpful customer service. Also, we saw more than one review complaining that the quality of the jewelry was low, and that errors were present in the orders on delivery.

Perhaps for anyone in the market for a low-cost class ring option should consider Limoges, but we can't recommend them very highly due to questionable quality and customer service, and a lackluster customization process.

Continued from above

Many of us remember the two different ring choices, male or female, in a small selection of metal types and one gem stone color. Today, one class ring company may offer 100 different looks with endless customization options. No matter what activities you want represented on your ring, the cost or look, the options are endless.

However, with a decent list of class ring provider's shoppers need to look closely at which company they put their faith in as there can be big difference between the shopping experience and outcome.

When selecting a class ring provider, you need to consider a few things. Some of these include:

  • Cost. Even among online class ring stores, costs can vary. You want to find a company that offers a wide array of class rings at the right price
  • Selection. Some class ring companies offer a few different class ring options, while others provide a huge list. You'll want to shop at a store with a large enough selection that you can find the right class ring for you.
  • Customer Service. From return policies to free shipping, customer experience and warranty policies, you want to shop from a class ring company that caters to their client's needs.
