Graduation Gift

I know it is only the middle of the year but before you know it, kids around Australia will be graduating from High School and University. It is nice to mark this occasion with a graduation gift. A piece of jewellery – something meaningful, that can be kept and worn forever.

We have a few ideas depending on budget and personal taste, starting with a bangle. Something simple that can either be worn daily or just brought out on occasion. Bangles are perfect to personalise as the are easily engraved. My favourite option is to engrave the outside with Roman Numerals representing the year of graduation. The Numerals are evenly spaced all the way around the bangle. You can then also engrave the inside with a name or a short message or quote. I recently did this for a group of 12 who marked their high school reunion in this way. Each person had the Roman Numerals but we changed up the material based on preference, so some were in Gold while others preferred Silver. We even alternated diamonds between each letter as a “pimped up” option. You can really do whatever suits your style and budget.  Prices for these start at $150 and are limited only by your imagination.

 

Another lovely idea is a set of diamond earrings. I particularly like this design as it has the three diamonds which represent yesterday, today and tomorrow. They are the perfect way to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future. We have some in stock in White, Rose or Yellow Gold starting from $385.

Finally, I love this simple diamond pendant. There are a couple of options with this one. We can supply the diamond but we are also happy to use a diamond you may have. So often there are pieces of  jewellery gathering dust in jewellery boxes. This is the perfect way to refashion a piece that may have had meaning but isn’t being worn anymore. We can make these simple pendants using customers diamond starting at $250.

My son is coming closer to high school graduation (currently Year 11 eeeeek). Time sometimes can go to fast for us as parents and it is important to take the time to slow down and mark the occasion. A graduation gift is the perfect way to do that.
