2023 Graduation Jewelry Gift Ideas

The gift of fine jewelry is especially thoughtful. Unlike fashion pieces, fine jewelry is made to be worn, cared for, and appreciated for a lifetime. It's a wonderful way to let the graduate know that, in your eyes, she's a grown-up now. There are many graduation jewelry gift ideas to consider; we've rounded up a few of our favorites here to spark your imagination.

Choosing gemstones

If the graduate isn't a fan of her birthstone, why not choose a gem in her favorite color? Or a neutral stone (such as Diamond, White Topaz, or Moonstone) that will go with everything she wears? For a college grad, you might even select stones that match her school's colors, so that her jewelry is a beautiful reminder of her undergrad years.

Is jewelry a good gift for graduations?

Absolutely! The gift of fine jewelry is both special and meaningful, especially when it's personalized. It acknowledges that graduation is a major milestone in life, and that the graduate is now a young adult. It can also be the start of her grown-up jewelry wardrobe. Just as her education will last a lifetime, so will your gift.

What type of jewelry should I choose?

Consider the graduate's personal style. If she prefers an understated look, you might choose a solitaire stone on a necklace or pair of earrings. (This is also a good choice if she's entering a conservative work environment.) If her look is bolder, consider a ring or bracelet that showcases a number of gemstones.

I have a jewelry gift in mind but don't see it on your site. Can I create a custom piece?

Yes, you can! Contact our Customer Service team and they'll be happy to help you design the perfect gift.
