With proper care, they can definitely last a lifetime. There are various kinds and types of jewelry with varied stone options which would cater to the particular preference and taste of the graduate. Besides being a great option to help graduates enter the professional world, jewelry gifts can also be memorable keepsakes that remind graduates of their wonderful college or high school years. Indeed, jewelry makes special gifts that bear value and/or significant meaning for graduates.
For College Graduates:
Before buying jewelry for the graduation event of your friend or relative, you may want to determine what type of jewelry to buy and the personality and age of the receiver of the gift. For college graduates (undergrad or grad), consider simple and timeless accessories, such as the following:
Necklaces are considered to be the most visible accessory as it is can easily be seen from a frontal vantage point. Whether it be a simple gold chain for men or a link necklace for women, think of simplicity and elegance that is not too big and flashy since they will be attending interviews or just starting their careers. For young women, you can even embellish a necklace by adding a specialized pendant that will be most suited for them once they venture in their own career right after they graduate. These pieces can help complete any business attire for both men and women.
Bracelets are very common graduation gifts for both men and women alike that can be fashionable, professional, or both. They make fantastic accessories for those who like to wear minimal jewelry or are uncomfortable wearing necklaces. Gold or silver link bracelets make an excellent choice to wear at job interviews or the corporate world for both women and men. Tennis or bangle bracelets also make safe choices for female graduates. Aside from its beauty and wear-ability, they can provide a significant sign of sentiment, especially for engraved ID or charm bracelets, which the bearer will likely treasure for a lifetime. They vary in style, thickness and type. If you want to give a male a bracelet, consider more masculine, wider chain bracelets, such as Figaro, mariner, and Cuban link styles, so they may feel more comfortable wearing it. When choosing bracelet jewelry gifts, think about the style and purpose.
Also, small-to-medium size earrings make an excellent impression in the corporate world for women, depending on the industry. Silver or gold hoop earrings - whether it be round or flat – are always popular. If you prefer to give larger hoop earrings, they make great, fashionable gifts instead. The facial structure can also help you determine the size. If the graduate has as a small face, stay away from buying very large hoops, and ff they have an oval face, any type of hoop earrings will just look good on them. Overall, for gifts to help with their business attire, opt for small-to-medium sized earrings, and for fashionable gifts, opt for larger sized earrings.
