A time to celebrate, graduation is a milestone event that deserves a milestone gift. So naturally, there’s no more perfect present than diamond jewelry. Precious, symbolic and lasting, diamond jewelry is something that the new grad can wear and enjoy now, plus treasure forever. After all, it truly never goes out of style.
Whether they are starting a new job, searching for a career opportunity or moving on to the next phase of school, every graduate needs a smart jewelry wardrobe. Discover diamond jewelry graduation gift ideas for every grad’s style—and every buyer’s budget.
Personalized Diamond Jewelry
A personalized gift shows you took the extra step to find something special just for the graduate. Luckily, it’s a big moment for diamond initial and monogram jewelry, so there are many ways to personalize jewelry gifts. Among the most popular items are Dana Rebecca’s diamond initial rings ($440) in yellow, rose or white gold. Other great options are diamond monogram signet rings (for her and him) and pendant necklaces with diamond initials in all sizes.
The Best Classic Diamond Jewels
You can’t go wrong with classic diamond jewelry pieces that the new grad can wear on job interviews, to the office or have as the building blocks for their growing jewelry wardrobe. The diamond essentials include an elegant watch, like Dior’s stainless steel model, which features a dial framed in diamonds; it’s perfect for day or evening. Of course, no jewelry wardrobe is complete without a tennis bracelet, diamond hoops and a diamond solitaire pendant.
For a classic with a twist, check out K Kane’s round diamond solitaire pendant with colorful enamel accents for a pop of playful color ($655). And don’t forget the guys in your life: David Yurman makes the perfect edgy ID bracelet with sleek black diamonds.

Everyone could use good karma, which is why we love Ileana Makri’s diamond and gold evil eye pendant necklace. As graduation is also a sentimental moment, diamond hearts, Rondel’s diamond XO and other charms are all great ways to express your love, pride and appreciation for a job well done with these meaningful graduation gift ideas.
