Graduation Gift Ideas

Cheers, Graduate!

Graduation looks different for our dedicated students these days. But if your loved one has been working hard, then congratulations are still very much in order!  As a ‘special occasion’ store, we often help clients find especially memorable graduation gifts that highlight how important this occasion is.

During this time, our remote team can still work with clients to find the perfect gift, as well as arrange for contactless pickup or delivery. Remember that gift certificates are always available, and find more suggestions below.

Timeless Jewellery

Jewellery makes a special gift for any important occasion. If you’re considering a gift for a young graduate, we usually suggest classic, staple pieces to help start their jewellery wardrobe.
Timeless pieces will work well in the office, the hospital, the classroom … and just about any other workplace your graduate is headed. John Hardy and Birks in particular are contemporary and youthful, while maintaining a sleek, sophisticated and enduring look.

May We Suggest …

A necklace from Monica Rich Kosann is also both youthful and contemporary, and sure to become a treasured heirloom. Remember that in many cases we can arrange for contactless pickup and delivery for any piece of jewellery – simply contact us at (709) 754-9497, and find more details about our hours and services during the pandemic here.

‘Travel’ Global Compass Charm with Sapphires

For the graduate ready to chart their course for the next adventure. This Global Compass “Travel” Charm in sterling silver is accented with White Sapphires and a Moonstone.

This piece is available without a chain, with a 32″ Black Steel Chain or a 32″ Sterling Silver Chain. The charm is engraved with “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.”

‘Carpe Diem’ Necklace in Silver

Seize the Day! This “Carpe Diem” necklace will empower and inspire everyday. The spinning globe of faceted rock crystal is surrounded with a sterling silver frame engraved with “Carpe Diem.”

This piece is in sterling Silver with rhodium plating to help prevent tarnishing. It is available with a 30″ oval link chain.


Classic Watches

A high quality watch will mark the occasion brilliantly and also grow with your graduate throughout their career. Watches make a mature gift choice that lasts a lifetime.

Speak with our team to explore our array of beautiful timepieces from OMEGA, Hamilton, Breitling, and Grand Seiko. We will happily help you select the right timepiece to match your graduate’s style and lifestyle. 

Graduation Rings

Graduation rings are always a time-tested way to honour graduates, celebrating all the hard work that went into earning their degrees. We take orders for MUN students, with rings for Nursing (including CNS), Pharmacy, Business, Social Work and the Medical School, and for the Marine Institute, with rings for Nautical Science and Naval Architecture.

When our showroom is open again, all graduating students from both schools (all programs) are welcome to come in, get sized, choose their color, karat and specifications …. and create a lasting reminder of their hard work!

Unfortunately, we cannot place any orders for rings until our showroom is open and social distancing rules are relaxed. 

In the meantime, gift certificates for graduation rings, to cover some or all of the price, make a great option. Please email our Design Consultant Rhonda at and she will be happy to answer any questions and help make arrangements.
