Here’s to the Class of 2019
Honestly, we don’t think there’s a more perfect graduation gift than Tassel Jewelry! Whether it’s a new spin on school pride or tassels for daily wear to remind her of all the hard work that earned her cap and gown, we’ve got you covered!
If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know that our Tassel Earrings are CUSTOMIZABLE! We love to bring our design-your-own Tassel Bar to local pop-up events and parties. But if you have been admiring us from afar, have no fear!
Contact us and we can help you create the perfect pair!
Show your school pride! Tassels are a chic way to take your school colors (or favorite colors) into your new job. We still love our team hoodies… but, let’s leave those for the weekend!
Let us know what your school colors are! We’ll help you pair just the right tassels and gemstone beads to create the perfect pride pair. They’ll be the envy of every tailgate, too!
We love tassel earrings so much because they are easy and fun to wear…
- big, bold statement piece
- lightweight for all-day wear
- dress them up OR down
- upgradable earring hooks (great for sensitive ears)
- perfectly priced for gifting!
So, do we (or these stunning photos) have you ready to shop tassels yet?
We’ve got a couple of options for you!
We’ll be POPPING UP on June 8th (with the Tassel Bar in tow) for the National Best Friend’s Day celebration at Cotton & Co Vintage Boutique in Keymar, Maryland.
In addition to the whole boutique filled with high end vintage dealers and artisan vendors, we’ll be joined by Black Ankle Vineyards out on the patio.
So, grab your bestie (or your favorite graduate) and head over for a fun day out!
(Oh, and Keymar, Maryland is a small town close to the Westminster, Taneytown and Frederick areas. We’ll be all over Maryland this summer, so jump on our email list to find out if we’re coming to a town near you!)
Can’t wait until June? Who could blame you! Our online shop is always open!
And we’ve even got some new tassel designs to kick off the summer season!
Or, for a more subtle (and beachy) vibe, these Navy Tassels with White and Aqua Gemstones are the perfect fit. Plus, these will transition beautifully into your fall and winter wardrobes, too!
Light or Dark Grey… which is your favorite?
Don’t worry. We can’t decide either. But the good news is, there’s no wrong choice! Whichever tassel is your favorite, don’t wait too long to snag it. You’ll want to be wearing them all summer long, so don’t miss out!
You can check out all of our latest arrivals in the New Designs section of our online Jewelry Shop!
(and, be sure to keep an eye out in the coming weeks because we’ve got a lot of new pretties on their way!)
Tassels aren’t just for the cap & gown look anymore!
Graduations mark an exciting milestone in a person’s life. They represent the closing of one chapter and the beginning of one that’s brand new!
And while high school graduations can bring up a lot of different emotions, ranging from excitement (newly minted adults!) to sadness (parents facing empty nests!), they deserve to be celebrated!
So, to make grad party season a little easier, we put together this list of our favorite graduation gift ideas for high school girls.
Honor the turn of tassels with a stylish gift
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again:
Tassel jewelry is the “it” accessory of the summer!
As lightweight statement jewelry, tassel jewelry is both cute and comfortable. Girls everywhere are accessorizing with earrings, necklaces, and bracelets adorned by tassels! Our Tassel Collection offers a whole rainbow of graduation gift options following this trend.
For girls who like delicate or minimal jewelry, we recommend the Pink Crystal Spike & Pearl Tassel Necklace as a graduation gift.
Its pale pink and white hues pair well with a variety of outfits. And the semi-precious quartz spike and freshwater pearl make this necklace feel extra special to receive.
Speaking of semi-precious gemstones, we also love the Blue & Gold Druzy Teardrop Earrings as a graduation gift idea!
Most high school students only own costume jewelry. So a gift of high quality handmade earrings is a thoughtful way to mark a girl’s transition to adulthood. The sparkly crystal layer on the druzy gemstones contrasts beautifully with the smoothly faceted amazonite teardrops. It’s a look that she can dress up or down!
For girls who aren’t afraid to make a fashion statement, we recommend a brightly colored Tiered Tassel Necklace!
The Jewelry Shop currently stocks this gemstone-accented necklace in two colors, pink and green. But if you’d like a different color for your grad, just send us a note and we can create a custom design for you!
No matter what graduation gift you choose, the point is to make the graduate feel special. Recognize her accomplishments and give her a gift that will carry her confidently into her bright future!

Ah, summer… The days are longer, the nights are radder; the sun is brighter making the jewels even sparklier!

The single most important part of summer jewelry care is remembering to take it off!
More specifically, be sure to take off your jewelry before any of the following activities to ensure its shine & color will last:
Before you SWEAT
Before you SWIM
Before you SUNSCREEN

1. Before you SWIM
When the ocean calls your name, all you want is to dive straight into the water. But stop for just one second to remove your precious jewels before making a beeline for the waves.
This quick pause can prevent your favorite gold necklace from turning green.
I don’t know about you, but a deeper tan is the only color change I want to bring home from a day at the beach! The same principle also applies for a day at the pool.
2. Before you SUNSCREEN
Practical wisdom tell us to apply sunscreen generously at this time of the year to prevent damage & premature aging. But did you know that the lotion you wear to save your skin can do the opposite for your jewelry?
Take off your jewels before applying sunscreen, and be sure to let it fully dry and soak in before putting them back on.

3. Before you SWEAT
The third “S” to keep in mind when you remember to remove your jewelry is SWEAT.
Depending on where you live, a simple walk outside in the summer could result in a glistening brow or full waterworks. If perspiration reaches the places where your jewelry touches – your neck, hairline, hands, and wrists – it can quickly become a destructive force on the surface of your jewelry, particularly for plated metals.
So, consider how much you might sweat during your walk along the shore or bike ride to the farmer’s market and plan your outfit accordingly!

Sound a little too involved?
If you don’t want to bother with removing your jewelry every time you engage in your favorite summer activities, you can always reach for non-plated metals or colorful statement pieces made of fabric, plastic, or glass when you accessorize for the day. These materials stand up much stronger against the elements of summer. Plus, they could add some unexpected flourishes of color & texture to your look!
