Fine jewelry is the perfect gift for the fashionable graduate. It’s a thoughtful and practical gift that will make them feel special and help them build their new adult wardrobe. But which piece should you choose?
When choosing jewelry for someone with an eye for fashion, you want to make sure it's on trend–but not so trendy that it will be out of style soon. Luckily, many of today’s top trending pieces have classic elements that give them a timeless quality. Here are 10 of the best on trend jewelry gifts that will also stand the test of time.
- Marquise Evil Eye Necklace
This delicate pendant necklace will add the perfect touch of polish to their look. And while it looks quite classic, this necklace also incorporates three of the year’s biggest jewelry trends: delicate chains, unique gemstone shapes, and evil eye jewelry.
- Pear Drop Diamond Studs
Diamond studs are a jewelry box essential they’ll be thrilled to receive. This immensely versatile accessory looks at home with everything from office wear to jeans and a t-shirt. For a fashion-forward grad, we love studs with modern details, like these chic pear drop diamond studs.
- Diamond Tennis Bracelet
A diamond tennis bracelet is a timeless piece of jewelry that also happens to be incredibly trendy at the moment. Wearing tennis bracelets with all kinds of attire, from formal to ultra casual, is one of the biggest jewelry trends of the year. A tennis bracelet is a piece they’ll be able to enjoy wearing now and for decades to come.
- Classic Yellow Gold Hoops
Yellow gold hoops of all shapes and sizes are trending at the moment. For a versatile take on the trend, we recommend a huggie hoop design. They’re the perfect size for daily wear, and are also an excellent addition to a trendy earring stack.
- Signet Pinky Ring
Pinky rings, chunky rings, and personalized jewelry are all trending this summer. Hit all three trends at once with an engravable signet pinky ring. Leave it unengraved for a minimalist look or add an engraving that will create a uniquely thoughtful gift. You could engrave this piece with their initials, a monogram, or something related to their time in school, such as the initials of their school or college town.

It’s the perfect accent to work attire, making it a particularly good college graduation gift.

Enhance their jewelry collection with this baguette diamond bangle. Bangles of all kinds are trending at the moment, including everything from slim gold bangles to oversized chunky bangles. We love this baguette diamond bangle for the stylish graduate, as it has a classic shape while also having trendy details like step cut diamonds.

These huggie studs give the look of a modern hoop stack in just a single stud. They’re bold enough to make a statement, while also being delicate enough to be worn with everyday work looks.
- Diamond Flower Pendant
