Congratulations to everyone graduating this year and thanks to all the parents, teachers, siblings and friends supporting them!
I see graduation as portrayed on the handbill for the ceremony: commencement. Graduation is a beginning. The start of new adventures and lifestyle are on the horizon.. The takeoff of to a new life, new traditions, new friends, new successes and failures: the stuff that makes life worth living.
Whether it be college, high school or kindergarten: this commencement deserves recognition! Honestly is there any better way to tell a loved one that you appreciate those late night studies and hard earned “A’s” than with a piece of jewelry. I can’t imagine anything better!
When you spend a half of your weekdays creating masterpiece necklaces and the other half helping the average father find birthday, wedding or graduation gifts for their daughters or wives you gain a sincere sense of what to suggest as the perfect gift. Like a pearl pendant in 14KT gold would be a simple yet elegant gift that can be worn in future professions while still having a great sentimental attachment. Anytime someone says, ” That is absolutely beautiful!” the daughter will always respond, “Thanks, my Dad got that for me!”
For college graduates I ask the customer: “How does your daughter picture her future?” “Is there a career coming with important job interviews?” A classic strand of pearls is my first thought: they look professional and never go out of style.
For high school graduates the classic jewelry will always be needed but “fun” is another road to take. Like a sterling silver or gold graduation charm. The styles range from graduation caps topped with a freshwater pearl to an engravable disc with encouraging words that will last and inspire a lifetime. Here at Pyramid Studios the range of charms run from A-Z and from fish to elephant to soccer ball and swim cap.
Commencement should also be a time to bring new traditions to life. Here are a couple ways:
Beads–whether in a bracelet or necklace these beautiful ceramic, glass, and silver beads are a colorful and very popular choice. There are a grand variety of styles and shapes with thousands of choices. Beads can be added to celebrate the significant events that measure life. We have all the supplies so the graduate can build their own bracelet or necklace. It’s easy, fun, and a creative tradition. The artist in your life love them.
Stackable Rings– a beautiful birthstone ring can be a simple start to a lasting tradition, so she could add more rings later to fit her lifestyle or add rings to celebrate events in her new world. Stackable Rings come in every gemstone and the selection is incredible: diamonds, topaz, tourmaline, enameled rings, plain and ornate bands….the variety is wonderful and the price is remarkably affordable.
So have fun when shopping for your graduate. Ask questions! We want both you and the scholar to be happy with your choice. Your graduate should have something that gleams as brightly as your shining star.
Come visit and and we’ll point you in the right direction. And, again, congratulations!
