Gift Guide: Graduation

GraduationAnna at her College Graduation in Williamsburg, Virginia,
with her sister, Marygrace, and Brother, William. 2015. 

It's no exaggeration when I say that the 2020 graduates are getting the short end of the stick. No spring semester, no grad parties, no formal graduation ceremonies. So, they deserve something extra special to congratulate them on their hard work... here's a list of what I suggest for the recent grads in your life!

Signet Ring. Size it for a pinky ring and engrave it with their initials. I promise - this is a classic piece that will be on their hands for the rest of their lives. 
Signet Ring

14k Yellow Gold Signet Ring, Engraving Available. 

Diamond Studs. I consider the perfect coming of age gift to be diamond studs. You have really become a lady when you have diamonds in your ears, and nothing will take you from the grocery store, to work, to the gym quite like a pair of diamond studs will. If you're not quite ready to make the jump into solitaire land, a great diamond cluster can accomplish the same thing. 

Diamond Cluster Earrings

Diamond Cluster Studs, as shown, 0.90tcw, $1650. Larger Carat Weights Available. 

Cufflinks. If your grad is entering into the world where they need to be dressed in business formal attire, cufflinks are a must. It pulls together an outfit, makes a statement ("I'm here to get the job done!"), and is a stalwart accessory in their closet. 

Yellow Gold Cufflinks

14k Yellow Gold and Diamond (0.03tcw) Cufflinks, $1250.

Business Card Holder. There is nothing worse than pulling out a crumpled, dirty business card from your wallet and giving it to a professional associate at a networking event. Fix the scenario with this chic business card holder, which can also be engraved on the back. 

Mother of Pearl Business Card Holder

Mother of Pearl Business Card Holder, $75, Engraving Available. 

Watch. There's one way to make sure your graduate is always on time, and that is to buy them a watch they never want to take off. APJ can find just about any watch you could want, so reach out to begin the time piece procurement process. 

Rolex Watch
Certified Preowned Rolex CRX123, $6950. 

Congratulations to the class of 2020, you did it!
