Gifts for Graduates
Whether you have a young lady or young man in your life graduating from 8th grade, high school, or college, we have several wonderful gifts to choose from this year.
Please click photos to see larger images. Details and information below. Necklaces on left show "2014," but these may be customized with any date.
[LEFT] The "Class of" Necklace: These hand-hammered sterling charms are strung on a 16-inch, slim-but-sturdy cable chain along with a silvery freshwater pearl and rock crystal. The smaller version (nickle-sized) accommodates one single initial and is $88. The larger version (quarter-sized) accommodates a 3-initial monogram. I place the last name initial, which is a tad larger, between the first and middle initials for a classic look. This necklace is $98.
[CENTER] The Key Ring: Hand-hammered sterling silver key fobs are attached to sturdy, beautifully made stainless steel and brass key rings which have a screw clasp so that a key may be easily removed. Each fob is roughly the size of a half-dollar and is formed from a heavy gauge of sterling. This key ring is an excellent gift for for any graduate and may be personalized in a variety of ways, as shown here. The fobs are stamped in the center with a traditional monogram, and up to 15 characters may be stamped along the edge. $95.
[RIGHT] The Life Necklace: Who doesn't love a secret message disguised as a lovely piece of jewelry? It may serve as a talisman, a token of love or support, or as an encouraging reminder and will be treasured for years.
While at first glance the Life Necklace appears to be simply a beautiful bouquet of gemstones and silver, it actually includes a private and inspirational "gemstone" message.
I chose to use an acronym - Life - Live It Fully Everyday - using labradorite, iolite, fluorite, and Ethiopian opal as the four gemstones to represent these words of wisdom. This necklace is sure to be a treasured keepsake for your graduate.
The small, sterling, initial charm is 10 millimeters in diameter and is stamped with the letter of your choice in a pretty script font. The second, optional charm measures 13 mm in diameter and may be stamped with up to eight characters. Both charms have a feathered border and are lightly hammered after stamping for a slightly concave shape. The sterling charms and stones hang freely on a 16 inch slim-but-sturdy cable chain, and the lobster-claw clasp is secured with a tiny pearl. The necklace with the single initial charm and four stones is $78. The necklace with both the initial charm, the second charm, and the four stones is $98.
Each additional inch of chain is $2.00.
Included in the package will be a card explaining to the recipient the meaning of the necklace and stones.
