The hottest ring styles now available with brilliance-cut gemstones
Dallas, TX (August 8, 2019)– Balfour®, digital retailer and premier provider of school recognition products, today announced its most popular graduation ring styles are now available with Zirconia by Swarovski® stones, giving these rings even more bling.
"As schools head back into session and ring-buying season begins, we are excited to offer this elevated stone option to help students celebrate their achievements," Matt Neeley, Senior Manager of Product Innovation at Balfour said. "This addition is one of many options students now have when choosing a custom jewelry product to commemorate their high school experience."
Balfour announced its exclusive partnership with jewelry-leader Zirconia from Swarovski® earlier this year when it set out to redefine the class ring industry by designing an irresistible collection of women's class rings and necklaces to serve as a gorgeous accessory worn not only during their senior year, but throughout all of high school.
This optional stone upgrade gives both the I-11 and I-21 mens' and womens' ring styles a brilliance-cut stone. Choose from more than 12 stone colors to compliment your ring design, including all birthstone colors.
"What makes a Swarovski Zirconia unique is the precision cutting that creates a reflection of light identical to a diamond," Erwin Wieser, VP Operations at Swarovski said. "We are extremely excited to spark delight in the graduate's life during such a memorable achievement."
The partnership with Swarovski is just one of several exciting ways Balfour is innovating the graduation jewelry market. With several new metal options including Argentium Silver, Rose Gold and Mossy Oak Camo finish rings, along with its charm necklace collaboration with Austin-based designer Liz James, graduates have more options than ever before.
"Every ring, every Liz James necklace, and every piece of Journey Series jewelry we make is unique and custom to the student ordering it," Neeley said. "It's exciting to see so many unique combinations, and knowing our customers are having fun creating a lifelong memento keeps us striving to offer the very best options in the graduation jewelry space."
