Class Ring Replacement
    July 17, 2023--Info from Dave Bigemann.

While researching the value of my Class Ring for insurance purposes, I called and received a letter from our Naval Academy Rep. Bob Vaz, from Herff Jones, formally Dieges and Clust. As you can see, the rings we paid $110 for 62 years ago are now worth approximately $2,500 to replace.

If anyone would like to replace a 1963 Class Ring, Class Crest, or Class Miniature, HJ still has the molds for our rings, miniature rings and pins. and can do the work . They also have on file our original orders should one wish to duplicate exactly their original ring.

They also provide service for rings such as resizing, stone replacement and clean and polish.

Bob Vaz can be reached by phone at 401-433-7932 or by email at
