Jewelry, the Gift of Love

Jewelry For The College Graduate: Tips And Ideas

Graduation time is here! All across the country, hundreds of college students are getting ready to walk down the aisle and pick up their diplomas. Whether you're a relative or a friend of a graduating college senior, now is the time to start thinking about meaningful gifts for that special someone. Jewelry is one of the most valuable and beautiful items you can get for a graduating senior. Jewelry is also meaningful, and can last your friend or loved one for the rest of his or her life. The following ideas will help you pick out the right jewelry for a man or a woman.

Buy Interview Jewelry

Many college students plan to go on interviews after they graduate, and many of them lack appropriate jewelry to wear with their suits and skirts. The following suggestions are perfect for graduates who hope to line up job interviews shortly after they leave college.

  • Tie clip. A tie clip is a tasteful clip designed to hold a tie to a button down shirt. Tie clips stop your tie from blowing in the wind or flopping out of control as you run to catch a taxi. To make the tie clip as versatile as possible, look for something tasteful, in simple gold or silver.
  • Pearl necklace. Pearl necklaces are the perfect gift for a woman who dresses tastefully and conservatively for job interviews. If you're on a budget, you can buy a necklace with a single pearl instead of a necklace full of pearls. Both look great with women's suits. 

Engraved Gold

Buy your graduating loved one something that will help them remember their special day. Purchase a piece of gold jewelry--anything that the graduate will love and appreciate--then have it engraved with the name of the graduate, the name of the college, and the date. This will serve as a permanent reminder of the graduate's big achievement.

Religious Symbolism

Graduation is a big milestone in a young person's life, and many people feel naturally nervous about the next phase in their life. Jewelry that bears religious significance can bring hope to people who find comfort in their religious and spiritual beliefs. Religious jewelry can include a necklace, earrings or even cufflinks.
