Artina's Gift Guide For 2022's Graduating Class

Artina's Gift Guide For 2022's Graduating Class

Graduating is a massive accomplishment. The fact that 2022’s graduating class finished their degree while powering through a pandemic speaks to their dedication. Let’s admit it, zoom school likely wasn’t the same as the traditional college experience. The pandemic was especially hard on our students. This is an accomplishment that should be more than celebrated!

The transition your grad is about to endure will bring her into a completely new stage of life. Many simultaneously feel joy, excitement, anticipation, and even a bit of sadness at this time. When shopping for a graduation gift, you should look for something that embraces this massive change and gets her excited for her new stage of life. She’s still young yet is maturing every day. How do you find the right jewellery to get for her?

Any jewellery you gift to her should still be young, fresh, and trendy. She should be able to wear her gift to job interviews, brunch with friends, around the office, or on a sophisticated date. When choosing a gift for your grad, go for simple, quality basics. As she gets older, her style might start to change but she should still have those solid staples to keep in her jewellery box. Here are some gift ideas that young women typically go for when shopping at Artina’s.
