Pearls are the only gemstones that are produced by a living animal.  It takes time for these beautiful stones to form as layer upon layer of nacre needs to build up and which helps to give pearls in say a pearl necklace or pearl pendant their beautiful luster.

Just like pearls, education is layered and each year your daughter attends school provides them with another year of knowledge until graduating from high school takes place.   It is their studies at high school that help them get the skills required to lead a more productive life, whether they choose to seek employment or choose to enrol on a university course.

A pearl necklace or a set of pearl earrings will make the perfect graduation gift for your daughter or even granddaughter.  Not only are they beautiful, but also they will have them for the rest of their life.

Pearl Pendant

These days pearl pendants are proving ever more popular as they are pieces of jewelry that can be worn whether a woman likes.  Not only do such pieces of pearl jewelry look great when teamed with a little black dress, but look just as stunning when teamed with a pair of jeans and a shirt or t-shirt.  If you can choose a pendant that combines a black Tahitian pearl with a simple setting and chain made of silver.

Pearl Choker

A beautiful pearl choker that measure’s only 17 inches would make the perfect pearl graduation gift.  Instead of opting for one that comprises a complete string of pearls goes for something a little more modern.  Go for a tin cup style pearl necklace that comprises say 9 beautiful pearls that are strung between a delicate silver chain.  The space between each of the pearls in such a necklace allows the beauty of these beautiful gemstones to really shine out.
