Graduation season is coming and soon countless students will walk across a stage toward their individual destinies. Graduation is exciting a gratification, a milestone that is significant and emotional for the individual graduation and also their friends and family. They’ve suffered the endless hours studying in the library and long nights cramming for exams or trying to finish an essay and shared with you the relief when the grades were posted. The only way to celebrate a momentous occasion like this is by finding the perfect special gift. But what is the right gift for someone special who is graduating?
A moment this important should be remembered forever, in an accessory that can be worn every day in honour of the event. The most classic graduation jewellery is decorated with the symbol of an academic cap. You could purchase a charm, for something that can be treasured on something that is already so special. This is a great gift that can continue to be personalised by adding new charms, each new event in life after graduation. The academic cap was part of the official academic uniform worn on formal occasions in certain countries, therefore, now traditional in the ceremony.
Graduation Cap Charm, £155.00
If you want a gorgeous gift which moves away from the traditional symbolism of a gap or gown, why not go for something that celebrates their talent, e.g. stars. Stars have been a symbol of achievement all throughout education, therefore, this could give the gift of everlasting achievement.
A more lively and energetic gift could incorporate something more original and colourful. This could be the perfect opportunity to get something in their favourite colour, with their birthstone or a colour that suits them. Blue represents trust, security and authority, whilst also being soothing and peaceful. Whilst green represents luck, freshness and wealth which may what you desire to give. Finally, red symbolises excitement, passion and love – perfect for the end of a chapter and the start of a new one. Here are just a few colours with great meaning.
Graduating often means finishing studies and leaving behind your student lifestyle in favour of a new way of life, typically the ‘adult’ life. The perfect graduation gift could symbolise this new life, providing a gift of professionalism – entering the workplace and starting to build their career. This could be the opportunity for sophisticated jewellery, to wear to important events or work. This could be an elegant watch or jewellery with delicate diamond or pearl stones. The most sophisticated women wear pearls and diamonds, so why not give the gift of delicate jewellery with white pearls?
Moving on to their new life could be a struggle, why not give them a gift that always reminds them you love them? Adorn them with hearts to symbolise your love.
Their time spent at the university will have been full of memories, therefore, the gift may commemorate these important years. You could add a personal touch by sharing one of your memories, having a symbol with a specific story or an added personalisation.
