Jewelry Gift Ideas for Your 2024 Graduate

 The Class of 2024 has overcome so much

We at John Wind would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt congratulations to all of this year’s graduates. For those who were high school seniors in 2020, we want to give you a special shout out. This group of students weathered a global pandemic. Their senior year of high school was marred by the abrupt cancellation of quintessential rites of passage: proms, graduation ceremonies and celebrations. The loss was not merely symbolic but deeply personal.

This year’s graduating college seniors deserve special recognition! From the loss of cherished milestones to navigating remote learning and social isolation, these young people have endured trials that tested their resolve and resilience. They persevered through adversity, and now they are about to walk across commencement stages throughout the country to accept their diplomas, move their tassels to the other side of their cap, and head out into the “real world” where we proudly anticipate their contributions and gifts.

A graduation gift for your favorite Swiftie

If you don’t know this already, we are Swifties here at John Wind (see our Sophisticated Swiftie Custom Charm Bracelet).

The Sophisticated Swiftie Custom Charm Bracelet - John Wind Jewelry

My niece, Gavi, is the big fan in our family; she’s my guide to all things Taylor. I think it’s serendipitous that graduation season coincides with the release of Taylor Swift’s new album, The Tortured Poets Department. The album's aesthetic of “dark academia,” characterized by brooding melodies and introspective lyrics, becomes the perfect soundtrack for the journey of a generation that has experienced profound upheaval and uncertainty.

Just as Swift's lyrics mine despair for hope, so too has the Class of 2024
confronted challenges and hardships and emerged ready to fulfill their dreams! Taylor sums it up:

“You know you’re good when you can even do it with a broken heart.”

A personalized gift for your favorite sorority grad

With accomplishment comes recognition, and John Wind has some amazing gift suggestions for you to bestow upon your special graduate. Let’s start with our best-selling line: The Sorority Gal Collection. These bracelets and necklaces feature hand-stamped initial coins from vintage embossed stamps offering a classic, retro vibe that will add to any graduate’s repertoire of cherished pieces.

The Sorority Gal initial bracelets and necklaces are available with or without a spun cotton pearl charm for an elegant and sophisticated touch. These initial charms are the perfect monogrammed gift!

The history of our sorority gal jewelry

Every initial on the Sorority Gal bracelet or necklace is made individually. The vintage font heralds back to the 1950’s in costume jewelry factories in Providence, Rhode Island. History buffs and lay people alike will appreciate this reel we compiled to document our origin story with the Sorority Gal line. It’s an interesting story that resulted in huge success for our company with Anthropologie AND Oprah’s famous O List enthusiastically endorsing our Sorority Gal collection in the same year! Watch to learn why this our most successful line of jewelry.


Customized bracelets and necklaces for your grad

To add to the possibilities of personalization, check out our custom jewelry page where charms can be stamped with Greek sorority letters and the graduation year! These options are part of our choices for custom charm bracelets and necklaces.

Those four years of college go by in the blink of eye! Immortalize them for your graduate with the perfect personalized gift that also serves as a memento of this special time in her life. If I had a message for the Class of 2024, it would be: continue to transform disappointment into opportunity, loss into learning, and sorrow into hope. Chances are, they’d rather hear from Taylor who would tell them, “You have no room in your dreams for regrets.”
