cufflinks as a gift

Jewelry Gifts for College Graduates [For Him]

Posted by Grogan Jewelers By Lon on Dec 10, 2019 12:05:12 PM

Though jewelry is most often considered for young women, the right piece can make a fantastic gift for a young man, as well, especially those who have recently graduated or are about to graduate from college. 

Graduating college is a huge milestone. Next comes job interviews, then a job that will hopefully turn into a career he loves. Something he can wear through all those stages -- and last the rest of his life -- is a great way to show you care. 

The Best Jewelry for Grads and Soon-to-Be Grads 

Getting a gift for a young man requires a bit of thought. What does he like? What will he wear? Also, if you're going for something that he'll wear forever, consider classics rather than trends that might look dated in a few years. 

Here are a few of our favorites for him.


Cufflinks have the distinct honor of feeling both retro and current. They also are great for helping young men add a bit of flair to otherwise boring suits. Even if your grad is a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy, cufflinks can be a unique gift that he'll appreciate even more when he starts going to job interviews. 

There are so many different types of cufflinks -- you might be surprised! This means that you can find a perfect match for his style and personality. Like choosing women's jewelry, you'll want to determine his preferences in metal and design. For example, don't go for highly visible, extremely stylized cuffs if his vibe is more understated. 

Need help choosing? Stop into your local jewelry store and chat with an expert jeweler!  


If cufflinks aren't quite the best fit, why not look at a nice watch? Watches go with any outfit, and there are tons of different styles available. Look for one that matches his style, be it sporty, professional, or laid-back. 

To buy a watch for a college grad, stick with high-quality materials and buy from a reputable jeweler. Take into account the design he'd like in both band and face. Leather bands look cool, but gold and silver bands can offer a classic, timeless style, too. Stop into one of our locations to see our selection of watches!
