Graduation Gift Ideas

The start of summer is also the end of a long academic road for many.

If you are thinking of celebrating college, high school and university success and achievement with a graduation gift, then pearls are a perfect choice.

At Winterson, we have an extensive range of beautiful pieces of pearl jewellery that make ideal graduation gifts. Classic pearl necklaces or pearl earrings are very popular, but if you are looking for something unique then our range of pearl pendants would also be a special gift.

A truly classic choice, Japanese Akoya pearls have the timeless elegance of fine jewellery. This type of saltwater pearl was the first to be cultured in Japan in the early 1900s and today are continued to be loved for their quality.

Akoya pearls are typically white, with an overtone of pink, and are admired for their excellent lustre. Lustre describes the way that light is reflected by the physical structure of the pearl's surface. A strong lustre is one of the key qualities to look for when buying pearls and will help create a flattering glow for its wearer.

Akoya Pearl Set

A pearl jewellery set of Japanese Akoya pearl necklace and stud earrings, perhaps completed with a bracelet, is a classic piece in any jewellery box. These pearls would be a beautiful graduation gift to be enjoyed on Graduation Day and as a reminder many years later after the ceremony.

To make the pleasure of receiving pearl jewellery as a gift more special, we offer all of our jewellery in a soft travel pouch presented in a luxurious jewellery box. Each item is gift-wrapped in our signature zig zag pattern and sealed with a Winterson flower.

Please Contact Us and we would be delighted to answer any questions that you may have or if you would simply like some advice about our pearls.
