Tis the season for marking one of life’s most important milestones for the many graduates of 2016.  And while earning that high school diploma or college degree is most certainly an achievement worth celebrating, let’s remember our little graduates, too!

Today, more and more schools are honoring students’ educational achievements along their path to higher education, with graduation ceremonies commemorating the move up from middle school, elementary school, and even Kindergarten.  This is a perfect opportunity to show your little graduate just how proud you are of him or her.  Graduation gifts for kids can certainly take many forms, but this is a particularly great time to begin a commemorative jewelry collection for your child.

Charm bracelets are a very practical choice in graduation gifts for kids, as you can add to their charm collection to commemorate all the many milestones ahead.  A charm bracelet grows with your child, even into adulthood, and they’ll be able to look back on all of life’s wonderful moments through a collection of special charms representing those achievements along the way.

Engraved bracelets and pendants are a great choice in graduation gifts, as well.  Custom engraving gives you the opportunity to add a very personal and sentimental touch with words of love and encouragement inscribed on the piece.  As your child grows and continues to achieve new levels of accomplishment, a wonderful jewelry collection can be built that, much like charm bracelets, can be looked upon in the future as a wonderful set of reminders of life’s great moments.

If you worry about investing in rings and bracelets for younger children, knowing that they will outgrow them, fear not.  Most rings can be resized to a certain point, but children’s rings also make wonderful pendants down the road.  Links can be added to many bracelet styles, creating a piece that will truly grow with your child into the future.

Graduation season is an exciting time.  Amidst all the ceremonies, receptions and parties, be sure to remember that every graduation is a milestone in your child’s life that will be recalled fondly and often.  Commemorating these milestones with lasting and sentimental graduation gifts like personalized jewelry is a great way to ensure that those memories never fade, as your graduate will be reminded of their achievements – and your perpetual love and support – each time they wear it.
