What to Give Your Graduate
Graduation is a celebration of achievement, a life milestone to be commemorated, and a transition to a new phase in life. The best graduation gifts do all three: look back to what she’s accomplished, serve as a reminder of the present moment and look forward to a brilliant future. That’s why jewelry makes such a great graduation gift: it’s a reward, the perfect reminder, and something that will last. She can wear a classic jewelry piece for the rest of her life, remembering this moment, what it means, and how proud you are of her today. That’s why we recommend timeless pieces that will look just as good decades from now as they do today. Classic stud earrings, solitaire necklaces, and enduring symbols are the perfect jewelry pieces to celebrate this day and her bright future. And brilliant lab grown diamonds feel as good as they look. Here are a few of our our top graduation gift ideas. We have even more great gifts for your graduate in our Graduation Collection.
Lab Grown Diamond Stud Earrings
She can wear these classic stud earrings to her job interviews, to black tie events, and to baseball games. Diamond studs have been in fashion since the Victorian age and show no signs of ever stopping. As her style evolves, she’ll still love wearing them. Round brilliant diamonds in a four-prong post, like our Sirius Stud Earrings, are the can’t-miss-classic version. If your graduate is a jewelry connoisseur, she might like a fancy shape diamond like these princess cut lab diamond studs. Pick her favorite color of gold or just go with white gold, which will disappear next to the brilliant lab grown diamonds.
Lab-Grown Diamond Solitaire Necklace
Just like classic stud earrings, a solitaire necklace is a jewelry classic that belongs in every jewelry wardrobe. It’s a simple timeless wear-with-everything style. Many women wear their solitaire necklaces every day. That’s because this style is easy to layer with other necklaces too. The most minimalist version has a simple bezel and a round brilliant cut lab-grown diamond. If she prefers something unique, fancy shapes like an emerald cut lab diamond necklace or pear lab grown diamond necklace add a twist.
A Lucky Charm
This charming Horseshoe Necklace is the perfect way to symbolize all the love and luck you want to give a new graduate. The horseshoe is facing up, holding all the luck for when she needs it most. Lovely pave lab-grown diamonds add the meaning of forever, too, making sure your sentiments today will be with her for the rest of her life.
Delicate Diamond Drops
Diamond earrings are a forever classic. These simple Diamond Drop Earrings earrings with two dangling lab grown diamonds, though, takes the idea to a whole new level. These double dancing drop diamonds move and catch the light in a way that studs just can't. And if your grad has multiple piercings and layers her earrings, they work well as part of an ensemble of earrings too. They move seamlessly from professional to edgy: does that sound like a grad you know and love too? Then these earrings are the perfect graduation gift.
Work and play, friends and family, passion and practicality: life is a juggling act. The lovely Brilliant Balance Necklace is an enduring reminder to breathe deep and find her own balance. One sparkling lab grown diamond is poised off center on a bar of shining gold, letting her know that it’s always OK to choose her own center point.
A Symbol of Protection
With your graduate moving on to the next phase of her life, she's becoming more independent. That doesn't mean you still don't want to protect her. The evil eye symbol is an ancient symbol of protection and enlightenment. It's even more powerful when set with pave lab grown diamonds and a brilliant lab-grown diamond eye. Give her the Brilliant Eye Necklace to keep her safe wherever she travels.
