Place your class ring on the ring finger of your right hand, which leaves the ring finger of your left hand to be
reserved for an engagement ring or wedding band. According to the Class Ring Shop, this is the proper
etiquette to follow, though the company notes some wear their class ring on the same finger as the wedding
ring. The wedding ring is slightly beveled in order for both rings to properly fit together.


Wear your class ring so that the insignia is readable when your arm is outstretched. This is according to the
"Complete Book of Etiquette" by Amy Vanderbilt, which also reiterates that many high schools and universities
have their own traditions where the wearer turns the ring around facing outward at graduation. This "turning of
the ring" is said to represent the wearer of the ring is ready to face the world.


Place your class ring on a chain or necklace if it can no longer be worn on the proper ring finger. Displaying
the ring this way is also acceptable if giving it to a girlfriend or boyfriend to wear, which may also take the
place of or become a symbol of a promise ring. This is meant to signify a commitment to a monogamous
relationship.

Start out wearing the tassel on the right side of the cap for the official graduation ceremony. Keep the tassel
on the right side of the cap while seated and waiting for your name to be called. Once your name is called,
walk across the stage with the tassel remaining on the right side of the cap.
