Graduation is a big day for anyone. It’s when you celebrate an achievement that has come from the efforts you’ve put in over years. In a way, it’s like the moment the pearl farmer opens an oyster to see what has come from months of waiting – making pearls the perfect gift for someone’s graduation.

Pearls are the only jewels that are made organically, over time, by a living organism. There’s nothing that carries weight like a string of heirloom pearls – in a glance, it says power, resilience, grit. It’s one of the oldest forms of jewelry, and though pearl farming has made pearls easier to come by, they are still formed in the same way: through the perseverance of a single, tiny organism which can’t even move itself around. If that’s not inspiring, we don’t know what is!

Here are four attributes associated with pearls which make them even more worthy as a graduation gift.

1. Perseverance and grit. Nothing says perseverance like the mollusk working patiently to try and rid itself of the bead, grain of sand or tissue inserted inside it – only for a shiny, lustrous pearl to emerge. A single pearl itself is enough to say that if you’re willing to put in the work, something beautiful will emerge.

2. Power and wealth. For centuries, it was only the wealthy that got to wear pearls – kings used to wear ropes of pearls as a mark of wealth. Today, if you walk into a boardroom wearing a string of statement pearls, it does exactly that: make a statement.

3. Style.  Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn Monroe. And now also present-day celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna and the incredibly stylish Olsen twins – they’ve all been seen with iconic strings of pearls.

4. Growth. From a small grain of sand or tissue grows a strong, beautiful jewel, symbolizing that no matter who or what you are, you can grow into something bigger and better than yourself.
