Graduation Gifts to
Many people struggle over what to get for graduation
gifts and after much thought, settle for money. They
think the graduates can use the money for their future
but the thing is that most graduates spend the money.
After a short time, they forget what they bought and
graduation is a distant memory.
Graduation gifts should be remembrances of the journey
through years of schooling, studying, making friends,
and building for the future. Graduation jewelry of all
kinds is the type of graduation gift that will revive
memories throughout life, bringing a smile to the face
of each graduate.
The Cap and Gown
The cap, gown, and diploma are universal symbols of
graduation day. They originated centuries ago when almost
all higher learning was completed in monasteries. The
gown developed from the robes that the graduating monks
used to wear. These robes developed into the caps and
gowns worn by graduates throughout the world today.
The caps and gowns are worn by the graduates as they
climb the stairs to accept their well earned diploma
on the stage. Friends and relatives clap with pride
as each graduate is handed his or her diploma and the
graduate holds it high for everyone to see. At the end
of the graduation ceremony, the graduates throw their
caps high into the air in celebration. They are ready
to move on to the next stage in their lives but not
ready to forget the memories of the past few years.
Cap and Gown Jewelry
These same cap and gown symbols are displayed on graduation
medals in both gold and silver. Any graduate would cherish
a graduation medal as a gift. No matter where the graduates
go, they will remember Graduation Day when they look
at their graduation pendant.
Another wonderful graduation gift is the gold graduation
charm. This charm depicts the cap and gown on the front
and can be added to any charm bracelet. These lifetime
remembrances will be held close to the heart as time
