1. Personalized Jewelry
In the great words of Queen Bey: If you like it then you should put a monogram on it (Oh wait, the song didn't go like that? Or did it...? Monogram.. diamond ring... same meaning). Monograms aren't only for girls, monogramed watches and rings are available for men.
There are many reasons why monograms are a go to gift. They are classy and can be worn for almost any occasion from super-casual to professional.

Personalized jewelry pieces come in the form of necklaces, rings, and even earrings! York Design Co.'s needlepoint cuffs can be personalized with city names, monograms and team symbols. They have a leather inner lining that not only makes wearing it soft and comfortable but also insures it will last for a long time.
2. Forever Jewelry

Forever jewelry also known as staple pieces are jewelry items that will be with that person for a while. These items can be worn for anything, anytime, all ages, shapes and sizes. Forever jewelry is usually silver or gold and a simple design.
When looking for a forever jewelry piece think, "I will love you long time." Like the adult version of friendship bracelets. Every time that person looks at this piece they'll remember you... For men a forever jewelry piece includes a leather strap bracelet or simple chain necklace.
Frosted Willow is an online jewelry shop where you can find tons of these forever jewelry pieces. I choose bangles to showcase as 'forever jewelry' because, you can find these everywhere. Buy a bangle from Bangladesh, France or New York. They will always be here for us... -sigh- when finals are testing your sanity those trusty bangles may be the only thing keeping you from walking right out of class. Well that and the fact that an arm full of bangles make too many clacking noises when we walk.
3. Memorabilia Jewelry
You want your grad to either remember the four years you guys spent together or to remember some grand event that holds a special place in your heart. I tried to get a whole love letter engraved on a necklace but it just didn't fit. This is an alternative. For example Vinca USA's laser cute wooden necklace that says, "The key to my heart is in Boston."
Memorabilia jewelry either means something or invokes memory, either way this gift takes a bit of thought and planning. I am the worst gift giver so I opted for the memorabilia gift. I'll either buy a souvenir from a concert we went to together or a locket with a picture of us together. I want the grad to remember what gift I got them because it touched their heart.
