Green graduation cords come in three varieties, Kelly Green, Forest Green, or traditional Green. These three cord colors are extremely popular, and are frequently ordered in conjunction with White honor cords in the double-tied style.
Green can also be selected as a braided or twisted cord with Kelly Green intertwined with White, or as a Gold with Green Graduation Cord.
