Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
WHAT ARE RINGWRAPS?
Triple Patented RingWraps™ are a matching pair of diamond bands meticulously handcrafted to encase a class ring. Our two-bar cradle design makes the RingWraps™ non-permanent and easily removable. RingWraps™ are made in the USA from start to finish. We are proud to be Aggie Owned and Operated! Choose from our three signature styles, or customize your own.
The Original RingWraps™ contain 5/8 carat total weight (.60ct) of common prong set round brilliant cut diamonds with G color and VS clarity. Certified by the GIA as natural diamonds. The Original, our most simple style, is perfect for those who want to add an elegant touch to their ring. Many of our customers start with the Original RingWraps™, and upgrade later on to the Mini Cascading or the Cascading, or they keep both and switch out the RingWraps™ based on the occasion.
The Mini Cascading RingWraps™ *NEW!* contain 1.00 carat total weight of common prong set round brilliant cut diamonds with G color and VS clarity. The diamonds are graduated in size and GIA Certified to be natural diamonds. The Mini Cascading RingWraps™ were released after customers requested a style that was bigger than the Original and smaller than the Cascading, but still had the beautiful tapered effect of the Cascading. Our most popular style!
The Cascading RingWraps™ contain 1-1/4 carat total weight (1.28ct) of common prong set round brilliant cut diamonds with G color and VS clarity. The diamonds are graduated in size and GIA Certified to be natural diamonds. Perfect for those who desire a more dramatic accentuation of their ring. Compared to the Mini Cascading, the Cascading style provides a heightened tapering effect due to the larger stones throughout the center portion.
Different stone options are available. However, we will not use Cubic Zirconia (CZ crystals). Please contact us with any customization inquiries.
HOW DO RINGWRAPS WORK?
How to put on RingWraps: RingWraps, with an inner two bar guard design, are designed to encase your ring. To wear, simply place your ring in the RingWraps. RingWraps are not permanent and can be removed at any time.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE RINGWRAPS TO PURCHASE?
It is recommended to order the same size as your school ring. If ordering RingWraps for your Aggie Ring, you do not have to send in your ring for sizing. To find out the size of an Aggie Ring, you can call The Association of Former Students office at 979-845-1050.
CAN I PURCHASE RINGWRAPS FOR A DIFFERENT SCHOOL RING?
Yes! We have customized RingWraps for over 60 different schools. Due to the varying designs of different college rings, it is required that you send us your ring (with the exception of Aggie Rings) so that it can be be molded, and custom RingWraps can be created. The process will take anywhere from 3-5 weeks. There is no additional fee for us to custom mold your ring. The prices will be the same as what is seen on the Shopping page. Different stone, along with other customization options, are available.
HOW DO I ORDER CUSTOM RINGWRAPS?
To purchase custom RingWraps, open the Shopping page, and select the style you would like. Continue to checkout. In the checkout process, will see a box entitled “ORDER NOTES”. Please provide us with your custom order details and we will in turn send you the prepaid, fully insured label.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO SEND IN MY RING FOR CUSTOM RINGWRAPS?
For all colleges other than Texas A&M (and certain SHSU rings), it is required that we have the college ring in order to properly make the RingWraps. We will need 3 to 5 weeks to custom make the RingWraps. There is no additional fee for us to custom mold your ring. Note- if you have an Aggie ring but are wanting to customize your RW with colored gemstones, a different metal, etc, it is required that you send in your ring. If you require customization, we will send you a fully insured, prepaid UPS shipping label so you can send us your ring.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR RINGWRAPS TO BE MADE?
Since RingWraps are handcrafted, turnaround time depends on the volume of our orders at the time of purchase. To be safe, please allow 3 to 5 weeks from the time of your order. We will make every effort to create your RingWraps in a shorter timespan! If we have your ring size in stock (Aggie RingWraps only), we will ship it within 1-3 days of purchase.
