Classic Jewelry Gifts

You cannot go wrong with a classic jewelry gift to celebrate your grad!

If your grad is a fan of the classics or likes a clean, elegant look, nothing fits the bill quite like pearls. A pearl strand is a timeless symbol of classiness, elevating any look to give you that extra boost of confidence. From an important presentation to a formal event, pearl jewelry is an effortless addition to any sophisticated style. Watches are another great way to subtly add poise to your look while keeping yourself fashionably on time wherever you go.

What’s another classic jewelry item any graduate would love to receive? Three words. Gemstone stud earrings.

Stud earrings will introduce subtle sparkle into their look as they cross the stage, take a seat for their first interview, and anywhere else life leads them. Classic diamonds belong in any outfit but consider color gemstone studs for a jewelry piece that is unique and eye-catching.

Personalized Presents

Knowing who you are and what you’re capable of is an essential part of taking the next big step in your education, your career and your life. So why not gift your graduate with a personalized present that will hold a special place in their heart?

Zodiac symbols carry with them so much meaning and fashion potential. And as you send your superstar graduates out into the world, the gift of zodiac jewelry is a powerful reminder to be ready for when the stars align and to seize the opportunity of a lifetime when they see it. Shop star sign jewelry in both gorgeous gold and striking silver.

Trending Treats

If your graduate isn’t much for zodiac symbols but adores expressing themselves with bold pops of color, birthstone jewelry is a trending item that isn’t going out of style any time soon. Every month on the calendar has a fabulous gemstone associated with it, and if the graduate you know has a birthday in May, why not surprise them with evergreen emeralds to commemorate both occasions?

Do you have a graduate that loves to wear sparkle wherever they go? This smartwatch cover from SkyB is the perfect gift for a graduate who isn’t afraid to style big with bling. Or maybe this choker necklace from TANE will catch their eye. For a simple and cute look, this 18k necklace with kiss charms is one piece they’ll never want to take off.

Gifts For The Guy Graduate

Now we can’t let girl graduates have all the fun when it comes to sporting luxury graduation gifts, can we? Luckily, Jedora has some bold, sleek and sophisticated jewelry for the guy graduate in your life.

Giving him a watch is a timeless way to show how much you care about his future… and only time will tell how far he will go in his career and accomplishments. Another great gift is a solid ring or stainless steel bracelet. Made to withstand whatever life throws his way, this bracelet will bolster his confidence with the strength and determination to make a bold impression.

All these jewelry gifts are just the beginning of the memories they’ll hold on to and cherish for years. But remember, as your graduate walks across that stage to begin a whole new chapter in their lives, the best gift you can give them is your support on their big day!
