Great Gifts for the Graduate from Guest Blogger & Graduate Herself, Jenny

Graduation season is here!

I know it can be hard to come up with good, original graduation gifts but as someone who is about to graduate (yay!) I am here to assure you that you simply can’t go wrong with jewelry! Luckily, Judith Altman Designs has pieces that are perfect for girls with all different styles. To help show some of these amazing options (all jewelry that I would love to receive) I have picked out pieces for five generalized fashion types. Just think about the style of the grad you need to acknowledge with a gift and this guide will lead you to the perfect selection!

For the Classic Grad
I love both of these gift options—the bangles and necklaces are really elegant but still fun and young! Classically beautiful, either of these pieces could be worn over and over for years to come!

For the Trendy Grad
This long necklace or these leather mesh cuffs are the perfect gift for a trendy graduate! The necklace is versatile and would be the perfect finishing touch to a fashion-forward spring outfit. The cuffs could be dressed up or down and the gold-tone clasp and trimming looks super stylish.

For the Casual Grad
These silver and leather earrings or hard leather cuffs are casual enough to be worn often by someone who doesn’t like to dress up but are still really special and unique!
For the Bo-ho Chic Grad
If you’re buying for a so-called bohemian graduate, this turquoise necklace will quickly make you their favorite gift-giver. It is totally unique and beautiful. The golden Buddha necklaces are perfect for someone with bohemian style who likes something a little more delicate while still interesting and fun!

For the Girly Girl
This “Charming” Vintage Locket Necklace truly lives up to its name! It is feminine and beautiful—perfect for someone who loves to look girly or romantic! The Oui/Non Earrings are also a great option, they are simple but would add a finished touch to any soft, girlish outfit.
For the Drama Queen
If the graduate you are shopping for loves to make a statement, this Blue Freshwater Pearl and Sterling Silver Necklace or Yellow Opal and Pearl Bib are absolute jaw-droppers, perfect for those with a flare for the dramatic!
