Graduation season is here! And the youth are feeling a bit bittersweet for this new chapter in their lives. They will feel all excited to step up either in college or into the real world, and even the fact that they will be dressing up for the occasion will also thrill them. On the other hand, there will also be a bit of sadness, since they will no longer see their circle of friends as often as they did in school. But we should be reminding them to move forward and keep doing what they have started.
Aside from the pieces of advise that we are to share to them, we can also mark this special day with an equally precious graduation gift. Something that the graduate can hold on to that will remind them of the roller coaster of emotions that they have felt on this special day.
In choosing the best gift to give, we must first be familiar with the personality of the graduate. Are they bold or reserved? Do they love to be surrounded by colors, or neutral colors pleases them more? These are some of the essential factors that would help you start your quest for the perfect graduation gift.
Some families pass on heirloom jewelry to their children who just graduated, as this is a sign of their transition from a child to an adult who is now ready to take on the world. But since there are families who do not have such valuable objects that has been in their possession for several generations, they resort to buying classic and quality jewelry that can be passed on to future generations.
The kind of jewelry that you give to a graduate may also start their jewelry collection. So it is just okay to give them the classics – stud earrings, gold pendants and chains, and a ring with a little gemstone on it. These are jewelry pieces that they can wear to social gatherings, job interviews, and even to their first jobs.
For graduates of Masters and Doctorate degrees, you can opt to give them more extravagant styles, something that they can wear on conventions, out-of-the-country business trips, or with their everyday power dressing at work.
You have infinite gift options to choose from to give to the newly graduate. But apart from these material things, your unending support, understanding and love for them will be the greatest gift that they can receive from you.
From us here at Blue Hill Jewelry, our warmest congratulations to the graduates!
