The senior Class of 1923 started the Norwich ring tradition. Class members R. T. Wilson, F. II. Styles and E.F. Merchant drew up rules governing its use, one of the stipulations being that only a candidate for graduation will be allowed to wear it, and then only from Junior Week through the senior year.
Each lifestyle at Norwich now has its own version and history of the Norwich Ring. Click on the images below to learn more:
It was written, "This ring will then mean as much to the man wearing it as his diploma and once the custom is started and lived up to every year, the alumni will appreciate more and more what a ring of this nature stands for. It is hoped that the following classes will follow the steps the Class of 1923 has taken, and make the Norwich ring a true Norwich tradition."

For the years marked *Jostens* the original Ring Company did not maintain the dies to cut a replica ring for your year. In order to provide you with a quality ring, we have designed the Classic Norwich Ring, approved by President Schneider in 2009. The class side highlights core Norwich ideals and history and will bear your class year. Please contact Jostens (info above on left) for more information. Click here to see a picture of the ring.
