Celebrating the Graduates of 2012

Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Well, it’s that time of year when caps and gowns line up to receive those diplomas that for the last four years they’ve been tirelessly working for. Whether it is High School graduation or College graduation, all of the hard work has paid off for these studious individuals. Finding a balance between class, homework, a part or full time job, internships, projects, research papers, all-night cram sessions for midterms and finals, weekends spent studying at Starbucks, in addition to maintaining a social life -  these grads have been busy! Now is the time they are finally free to go out and experience life outside of a classroom. It is their opportunity to change the world. Whether the next choice is to travel and experience new cultures or jump right into the work force and begin a career, many doors have opened because of the path they have chosen.  Let’s celebrate their accomplishments and show them just how proud we are with one of these heartfelt gifts they won’t soon forget.


Tiffany & Co. offers graduation gifts for every grad. This beautiful sterling silver Class of ’12 Round Lock Charm and Chain is simple and sophisticated for your intelligent scholar.

Guarantee they are never late to work with this gorgeous stainless steel Atlas Watch.

Also from Tiffany & Co., they will never miss an opportunity to hand out their new business cards with this inscribed, sterling silver Business Card Case.

If there is one thing these graduates have earned in the last four years it is the knowledge that there is no limitation to what they can accomplish. Not to sound like a cliché, but speaking to the graduates, the world is your oyster and to quote the famous Milton Berle, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.”
