2021 Graduation Gift Edit

2021 Graduation Gift Edit

by Tabitha Sukhai

Graduation 2021

It's that time of year: parents and relatives of 2021 grads are scrambling to find beautiful gifts for the students in their lives. There's so much going on as the world races back to normal that, for many, finding the perfect gift got lost in the mix. 

Fine jewelry gifts are a wonderful way to commemorate the achievement of graduating high school or college. We've recommended custom jewelry or rings in lieu of standard class rings. But, it's also a great idea to normalize the commemoration of academic and professional achievements with fine jewelry investments (in addition to the milestones of engagements and weddings).

Here you'll find our top requested "class ring" designs, but first, some Ready to Ship (ships in 2-3 days) gift ideas from our signature fine jewelry collection.

Deep navy blues and rich, hunter greens are common school colors. Our Florentine ring is a truly modern take on a commemorative class ring ($2600; ready to ship now).
