Your 2018 Graduation Gift Guide

May 18, 2018

Your 2018 Graduation Gift Guide by George Press. What better way to start the next chapter of their lives with a new piece of jewelry to mark the occasion?

The month of May is officially upon us. We (finally) have summer break in our sights, but before that comes graduation and all of its glory. As our favorite students adorn their cap and gowns and enjoy the traditions of pomp and circumstance, they are filled with the same hope and excitement for the future as all of the graduates before them. 

Perhaps the future holds an adventure to a new place like a college campus, or the start of their adult life with a new job. In fact, the word “commencement” means a beginning or a start. And what better way to start the next chapter of their lives with a new piece of jewelry to mark the occasion? 

For the soon-to-be college freshmen, a sturdy watch will help them ensure they are always on time for their classes. At George Press we carry an extensive line of Swiss Army watches, and can help you find the prefect one. 

A classic choice is the Swiss Army Chrono Classic XLS. This well-known and well-liked watch is made with quality materials that captivates onlookers. 


Another option is the Victorinox Swiss Army Night Vision watch. It is intuitive, efficient, practical and tough. Just like your favorite new graduate. And it also has luminous hands and hour markers, so he can still keep tabs on the time, no matter how late into the night he may be studying. 


For her, the Swiss Army Officers watch is clean and timeless done in a signature yellow gold with stainless steel. It will look great on her as she sits in the front of the class eager to learn and take on the world. 


If you are looking for a watch that is a little more playful vs formal, this Valentina diamond and sapphire watch by Bertolucci could be ideal. Made with stainless steel, it is finished with 0.61carats of diamonds and 0.07carats of pink sapphires. 


For the graduates starting off a new career (and the ever important interview process), it is important that they dress for the job that they want. 

A great new pair of cufflinks is an ideal gift for the guy that wants to climb the corporate ladder while looking his best. We have a variety of styles from playful to formal. 

If you are looking for something with a bit of an edge these Deakin & Francis skull cufflinks would be ideal. Available in two different styles, both are made with sterling silver with one version featuring diamonds for eyes. These could be a great look during a medical school interview!



Another cufflink option also by Deakin & Francis are these lovely mother of pearl cufflinks. Also made with sterling silver, these beauties could be the perfect finishing touch to a brand new suit. 


For her, a great pair of gorgeous yet understated earrings would be a lovely graduation gift. The Jaipur collection by Marco Bicego can take her from the interview to the board room and everywhere in between. Each pair is made with 18karat yellow gold and feature garnet, citrine or amethyst gemstones. 


If you like the idea of giving your recent graduate a necklace to celebrate her accomplishments, this pearl and diamond pendant will not disappoint. From the Lunaria collection, this 18karat black mother of pearl and diamond necklace features two beautiful connected paves at the center with a yellow gold chain. 


A graduation is such an important time in a person’s life. It makes the end of a familiar chapter, and kicks-off the start of an exciting new one. We wish the graduates in your life all of the best. We know that they will achieve great things – and if it is done while wearing a piece of jewelry from George Press they will look fabulous doing it!
