Recently we published a gift guide to help you find the perfect graduation present for men. Now - it's the ladies turn, and we've got a full list of gifts that she'll never want to take off! Here are some of our favorite picks to help you start planning out the perfect graduation gifts today:

Delicate Diamond Pendants

Let's start with a classic - a delicate diamond pendant necklace. Diamond pendant necklaces have been around for decades and are the epitome of simplicity and class. They make a small yet powerful fashion statement, and they match virtually every outfit. You know she'll be wearing her pendant for years to come! 

You can opt for a single diamond pendant or a cluster pendant of smaller diamonds. Both options allow you to present her with a gift that she will absolutely adore.

If you're looking for something beyond the classic diamond pendant, opt for a more fashion-forward diamond pendant that is meaningful. One of our favorite places to start is the Tiny Treasures collection by Roberto Coin. In this collection, you can find delicate diamond pendants in the form of initials, symbols like arrows and other good luck charms like wish bones or palm trees. Customize the necklace for her whether it be her name, where she will be living next year or maybe her new life adventure. Click here to explore the collection, available at Long's Jewelers. 

Stylish and Modern Lockets

As you move on to the next stage in your life, it's important to hold onto happy memories from your past. A great way to keep your most dear memories close and look stylish at the same time is with a locket.

The pieces shown above come from Monica Rich Kosann, whose love for family and photography inspired her to create a collection of lockets with many different designs. Upon opening the lockets, you'll will find empty frames to set photographs in. Surprise your lucky graduate with meaningful pictures that will remind her of happy memories, or leave it empty for her to pick her own pictures. Either way, she is sure to cherish her new locket and always remember the caring person who gave it to her.

Is she a fashion forward grad-to-be? Then she'll love these stylish stacking bracelets from John Hardy. John Hardy is one of the hottest, most talked about fashion jewelry designers today...and not just because he creates beautiful pieces. But also, the background of his company is really one-of-a-kind. John Hardy's inspiration comes from one of the most beautiful, serene places in the world- Bali.

You can give her a bracelet to start her collection or add one of these beautiful and unique bracelets to her existing Classic Chain stack. Either way, it's a meaningful piece that you know she'll be wearing forever. 

Beautiful and Practical Watches

Giving a watch at graduation is traditionally a gift that you would give to a young man. But this is no longer the case as fashionable watches are becoming very popular with women as well. Getting her a timeless, beautiful watch will not only look great on her, but it's also a very practical gift.

This is a great gift for a woman who may be entering the workforce with an office job or one where punctuality is key. Watches for woman are frequently purchased for those pursuing careers in business, finance, nursing, medicine, teaching, and beyond. Getting her a watch for graduation is the perfect gift - something she'll wear almost every day as a reminder of the places she's been and where's she's headed in the future. 

Classic and Elegant Diamond Earrings

If diamonds are a women's best friend, then a person who gives a woman diamonds is sure to be loved. A good pair of diamond earrings is a great gift for graduation because it is the epitome of a "mile stone."

I say this because diamond earrings tend to get less wear and tear from every day use than other diamond jewelry. This makes it easier for someone to sell their earrings back so women can grow the size of their diamond earrings over time as they reach new mile markers in life. So rather than giving her a gift that she will soon get tired of, the value of your diamond earrings will stay with her for the rest of her life.
