Class of 2021 Graduation Gifts: Jewelry Inspiration

Congratulations class of 2021: you did it! If anyone deserves a graduation gift this year, it’s you! There’s nothing like the triumphant feeling of finally wearing that cap and gown, walking down the aisle to collect your degree after all your hard work as your family look on with pride. This special day is the moment where you step into the crazy and unpredictable world of adulthood - however, you’ve already weathered enough storms so early. 


Throughout the academic year, the class of 2021 has had to face even more hurdles during their studies from attending masked classes and long quarantines, to Zoom breakout rooms, distancing learning and being unable to enjoy life on campus with friends. The fact that you all succeeded to graduate from university during a global pandemic makes this particular graduation day an even bigger milestone. 


Why buy jewellery as a graduation gift?

This year most of you are celebrating your graduation ceremony virtually with friends and family due to Covid-19 restrictions, but that doesn’t mean that you cannot get a beautiful graduation gift to mark this milestone. Graduating is a momentous occasion so to celebrate such an amazing day, buy your loved ones some stunning jewellery. Jewellery is an elegant graduation gift and unique personalised jewellery will be a permanent and sentimental memento that they’ll carry for the rest of their lives. 


A customised chain, bracelet with initials or sterling silver ring as a graduation gift will become a much-cherished piece of jewellery to any young graduate. Create a graduation gift bundle with small mementoes like fresh flower bouquets and chocolates then pair with a piece of fine jewellery for a gift to last a lifetime.

Graduating from university is a milestone that should be celebrated in style. Jewellery is every woman’s best friend so it’s the ideal graduation gift for your sister, girlfriend, daughter, or wife, who are graduating this year. Their graduation gift not only marks this huge achievement but also lets them know how proud you are of their work after watching them working day and night to submit those assignments. When choosing a graduation gift, keep in mind their academic journey, what the jewellery symbolises, and their personal style. Charm bracelets by brands like Trollbeads make the perfect gift to celebrate this momentous event as each charm is impeccably designed to tell a beautiful tale. For women who prefer elegant and light-weight jewellery that they can wear every day, Trollbeads charms add a dash of charming sophistication to their everyday look without going overboard. The charms are available in different designs, colours, and patterns, including a graduation cap, owl, or any other academia-inspired designs that add an extra dash of style and fun. Other than charms, you can also buy your young graduates a gemstone ring, personalised bracelet, or the fashionable ‘evil eye’ chain, so that their new journey is filled with luck, love, and support. The fashion-savvy graduates will love to flaunt their elegant jewellery pieces, sharing tales of their hardworking academic year and how you have made them feel special with this precious gift.

Graduation gifts for him


There’s plenty of options for graduation gifts for men from cufflinks and signet rings to chains and bracelets. Add that extra unique charm by having their jewellery engraved with their initials, year of graduation or name of the university to remind them of this precious moment in their life. Gifting him with engraved cufflinks before the graduation ceremony means he can wear them to complete his graduation look and commemorate his special day. A signet ring also makes a unique yet traditional graduate gift for him. It could have the initials of the young graduate or the classic class of 2021 sign to mark the occasion and let your little boy know that he is now a man about to graduate.
