They own a company that makes construction equipment and tractors (imagine a British...
Why don't you get a needle and thread (or a sewing machine) and have a go at doing it yourself?

If J Crew is selling them now (rather a nice, simple, sterling silver one), then I think it means they're back. Or maybe we can wait until they don't sell any, and they sell them at huge discount.

You probably won't even see it in any retail store in the U.S. I'd bet. Does J Crew operate in any foreign markets?

This is ridiculous. As others have pointed out, the whole idea of a class ring is very silly except perhaps for a small number of undergraduate schools.

If you're interested in international relations or maybe the foreign service, languages should be a priority. If you're not already doing it, a major western European language (Gaelic isn't a major language) and then perhaps a "hard" language - Arabic is an obvious choice but there are various others. Or go and live in Ireland for a year - see if you can do a year at a university there. Lots of good ideas there
