Graduation is a such a significant milestone, and a thoughtful piece of jewellery can serve as a lasting reminder of this accomplishment. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a high school, college or university graduate, we’ve collected some great graduation jewellery gift ideas.


Some educational institutions may have their own “grad rings” available for purchase. But, if not, a ring is a wonderful gift for graduation because it can easily be worn everyday.

Signet rings come in many styles, shapes and metals. From wide, chunky and geometric to slim, dainty and curved. You could choose to set stones in a signet ring, leave them plain or engrave them with the graduates initials.

Necklace with Initial Pendant

A delicate necklace featuring the graduate’s initial is a simple and personal gift. It can be worn every day and serves as a reminder of their achievement.

Bracelet with Engraving

A bracelet engraved with the graduate’s name, graduation date, or a meaningful quote is a beautiful and sentimental gift. They can wear it on special occasions or as a daily accessory.

Birthstone Jewelry

Consider gifting a piece of jewellery featuring the graduate’s birthstone. It adds a personal touch and can be incorporated into rings, necklaces, earrings, or bracelets.

Inspirational Message

Choose a pendant or bracelet and engrave an inspiring message or symbol that resonates with the graduate’s aspirations. It could be a compass, a key, or a word like “dream,” “courage,” or “believe.”

Pearl Earrings or Necklace

A pair of pearl earrings can be worn on formal occasions or dressed down for everyday wear so they will get lots of use. The same is true for a pearl necklace although they do tend to be reserved for special occasions.

Customized Cufflinks

Customized cufflinks can also be a great gift for the sophisticated grad. You could engrave them with their initials, graduation year, or a special message.

Final Thoughts on Graduation Jewellery Gift Ideas

When looking for graduation jewellery gift ideas, remember to consider the graduate’s personal style and preferences. It might also be a good idea to consider the significance of the jewellery piece you choose. For example, a parent may want to invest in a higher cost gold ring whereas extended family members may choose an engraved gift in silver. Although no less meaningful, a silver gift will be less costly than a gold gift.
