Class rings were used to "go steady" - girls often used tape or yarn to make them fit or else wore them on a chain around their neck. Still have my husband's ring, that he had made smaller for me, over 58 years ago.

Class rings were used to "go steady" - girls used angora yarn to make them fit or else wore them on a chain around their neck.this is just like my dads ring
A boy would give his girlfriend his class ring to "go steady." She would wrap the inside with angora to make it fit. Sometimes she would wear his (angora wrapped) ring on a chain around her neck. ........I used soft yellow angora because his birthstone was yellow. So pretty!
Wrapping my boyfriend's class ring in angora yarn so it would fit when we were going steady oh yeah! Now that boyfriend is my husband and I still have his ring! Lovinnng it! Wrapped their rings in mohair yarn to match our outfits.

pin curls.comb damp hair and part into small sections. You’re going to pin each curl with a standard bobby pin, so sections must be small. Wind each curl around your finger smoothly. Pin each curl in place with a bobby pin.Gently tie a silk scarf around your hair before going to bed. In the morning remove pins and gently finger comb your hair. Letting pin curls fall loose from a side part was one of the sexiest 1940’s hairstyles.
