Robert F. Smith Inspires Jeweler to Gift Morehouse Grads $250k of Bling

EXCLUSIVE

9:40 PM -- The jewelers at Jadelle are producing the cufflinks for Morehouse's class of 2019 on their own, and the Smiths will not be involved.

We're told Hope was contacted, but only to request a family logo Jadelle wanted to include in the design.

Morehouse College's class of 2019 is getting another amazing gift to commemorate the Robert F. Smith covering their student loans -- and this one involves a Bev Hills jeweler.

Sources connected to the billionaire couple tell TMZ ... Hope Dworaczyk Smith was contacted by Jadelle Beverly Hills about creating a custom pair of cufflinks for the 396 graduates. We're told the jewelers plan to make something that includes gold, silver, diamonds, the school name and, perhaps most importantly ... the Smith family name.

We're told Jadelle will be footing the bill, which is expected to be around $250k.

Our sources say the jewelers -- a fave spot of Kim Kardashian, Sofia Richie, Jamie Foxx and Justin Bieber -- were inspired after seeing Robert surprise the grads with his plan to pay off their student loans.

We're told Jadelle hopes to deliver the goods to the grads in August. 

The cufflinks won't help 'em pay their bills, but will remind them of the guy who is saving them thousands upon thousands of dollars!
