They get to have the prized diploma -- evidence of the struggle they have had for the last couple of years. If you're planning to celebrate it with them, celebrate it with style by giving them jewelry graduation gifts. Jewelry for graduation is a unique and special way to help them welcome their new life in the real world. Are you still planning what graduation gift to give? Here are 13 jewelry gift ideas for graduation that would surely suit the taste of any graduate out there.

1. The Travel the World Pendant

What is an astounding way to tell a university grad that this is now the best time to enjoy life? As a jewelry graduation gift, choose something that will somehow represent life after the hectic schedules that come with university life. Want to give jewelry for graduation? Why not this pendant made after the icon of the earth? Encourage your grad to explore the world, have fun, feel her freedom, and conquer her fears. After-graduation life is the best time to achieve dreams; fuel her dreams with this lovely pendant!

2. The Rose Gold

Sometimes, we have to let our dear graduates face the truth: after graduation, there's this short phase called unemployment that awaits them, and they have a journey to take to fight it. And for new yuppies to feel confident in their job interviews, they have to be and look their best. Boost their job-hunting confidence with lovely and classy rose gold pieces; she can even wear them for her graduation jewelry. Rose gold has proven to be a total hit these days, and there's no denying it's one of the most favorite of jewelry consumers. Rose gold for graduates, go for it!

3. Pearls

We know enough already how pearls are a great addition to any wardrobe because they make any outfit look perfect. Although the classic pearls are still top-notch choices, they don't work for young professionals anymore (unless they're going to a fancy party). If you are a firm believer in pearls and feel that they still make the best jewelry gift ideas for graduation, add a little twist to your gift. Instead of going for the traditional beauties, why not go for a more modern looking one like this gold choker necklace embellished with pearls. It keeps the classiness of the pearls while introducing a more cosmopolitan touch to it.

4. Birthstone Jewelry

Did you know those birthstone jewelry items all have meanings? They have special messages in them, making it one of the most special graduation gifts you can give to anyone. These birthstone jewelry beautiful complements to any outfit (at any day), you can also send your encouragement through them. They are perfect as presents for those about to venture into new phases of life, and who else needs them most than the newly graduated students who are about to face the many challenges of adulthood? Send a sweet, memorable message to a friend with these birthstone jewelry pieces.

5. Diamond stud earrings

Jewelry gifts for graduation need not be costly, but if you want something that will last a lifetime, go for these diamond stud earrings. What makes this jewelry a perfect gift for graduation day? The reason is that young professionals don't always have enough money for fancy stuff as they would eventually spend their first paychecks paying their college loans or checking off the mortgage of their apartment. So, this jewelry is a real treat as it can be used in casual events, job interviews, a night out with friends, and sophisticated parties. Your friend will surely love you forever.

6. Boyfriend Watch

Gone were the days when pretty watches occupy almost every watch of every lady out there. One of the biggest hits in the fashion industry nowadays is boyfriend watches. You may wonder what boyfriend watches are and what makes them great jewelry gifts for graduation. Well, these boyfriend watches have become a staple fashion accessory. These are the over-sized watches you see that are usually in gold or rose gold and paired with gorgeous bracelets. They serve two purposes: to make someone know what time it is and make them look good. Now, isn't this what every graduate needs to have in their life?

7. Key Chain

Graduation gifts can sometimes be pretty rad; I remember a friend receiving a car from his parents, and another one got an apartment under his name. If you don't have enough bucks to serve those kinds of expensive gifts, you can still extend your congratulations by giving your friend something personal, handy, and she could surely use for her other fancier gifts. You can give her a personalized key chain. I love how these key chains look sophisticated and regal, no matter how simple they may seem. Sure, you can't give them a car or an apartment, but this sassy key chain can be used with both.

8. Dream Catcher

What's a jewelry gift for graduation ideas list without including a dream catcher on it? A dream catcher for your dream catcher? Graduates fall in love with these kinds of charms and pendants because it reminds them not to feel discouraged in pursuing their dreams. Sometimes, after-school life can be tough and very intimidating, but when our friends get the support they need the most, their focus gets clearer. If you want a gift that will serve as a reminder and encouragement, don't forget the dream catcher.

9. Horizontal Bar Necklace

A horizontal bar necklace, enough is said about this beauty. But we can't deny adding this to our list because if I were a student who is about to graduate right now, I would beg my friends to give this to me. The rationale is, it's like a symbol of my transformation from a university chick to someone ready to take over the world. University would often demand weird-looking jewelry, and nothing would look good in a corporate fashion. This accessory is perfect for a young professional who is still exploring the style of the corporate world. She will love this!

10. Sterling Silver Jewelry

When it comes to looking classy and fab, the first metal that comes to our mind is always gold. But, whoever said we are taking sterling silver jewelry pieces away from the equation. Gifts for graduates can sometimes include a ton of stuff, but you should not forget this. When a person gets a job, a basic wardrobe color, black, become part of her daily fashion. Help her elevate her black ensemble's look by giving her a gorgeous set of sterling silver accessories. The contrast of the black dress and silver jewelry is always phenomenal. We guarantee you your friend will be delighted with this.

11. A colorful accessory (just in case)

A whole array of colorful jewelry pieces isn't a bad idea, too. There will be times that your friend will also break free from her typical work schedule and commitments. Help her feel beautiful on rest days with this jaw-dropping statement jewelry in popping color. If your friend wants to upgrade her fashion at work, your jewelry can always come in handy; that's what makes a perfect jewelry graduation gift.

12. Bead Jewelry

If you're looking for a graduation gift for guys, you're in for luck. One of the best jewelry gifts you can give on graduation is bead jewelry. Sure, you might say that beaded jewelry is so middle school, but that is not the case for male fashion. They're born luckier than girls because even if they are in their suits, they can still rock the bead jewelry. If your male friend is about to bid goodbye to his dear alma mater, welcome him to the real world with this rustic but attractive bead bracelet. You will never regret it!

13. Last but not least is this tree of life jewelry.

This unique and special pendant carries with it an exceptional message. It talks about life and our journey with it. It reminds us of hope that no matter how hard it is right now, there will always be blooming opportunities. The tree of life can be worn as a pendant or a brooch, helping others hear the same message simply.
