Until recently, mother's rings were the piece to have — a slim gold ring with the birthstone of each child inlaid tidily. But why stick with tradition when you have so many more options to choose from? Mother's jewelry of all kinds is the perfect gift for a mom who doesn't wear fancy rings often. Mother's necklaces with custom engraved pendants are ideal for the mom who's always using her hands. A fashion-forward bracelet with her children's birthstones is trendy and cool, just like her. Understated cluster earrings are perfect for those with three kids or more, and while not as obvious as a ring, will make her smile every time she puts them on.
A New Heirloom
Are you celebrating being empty nesters now, or is it your first year as parents? Celebrate the bigger years as a mother with a unique and once-in-a-lifetime piece to pass down from generation to generation. Heirloom jewelry is meaningful for all who inherit it; necklaces, brooches, earrings, and rings are all timeless pieces to pass down to children and grandchildren. Stick with durable materials like diamonds, sapphires, and rubies, and choose classic designs for a piece of jewelry that ages well and will be loved by all who wear it. Use this Mother's Day as an opportunity to create a new family treasure.
From "Mothering Day" to Now
The history of Mother's Day in the United States goes back to the early twentieth century and draws from the tradition of Mothering Day. Mother's Day was officially proclaimed a nationally recognized day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Mother's Day in the U.S. didn't start out with the tradition of gifting mothers with jewelry, flowers, and cards, but it evolved quickly to incorporate tangible expressions of love. Rumor has it that the founder, Ann Jarvis, protested Mother's Day for its lack of sincerity — so make sure you get Mom fine jewelry she'll really love, from the bottom of your heart!
Classic, Timeless Staples
Who says that practical gifts can't be fun? Get something for Mom that's destined to become an everyday staple in her wardrobe — a simple pair of diamond studs to never take off, a short gold necklace that goes with everything from a t-shirt to a cocktail dress, or a classy solitaire gemstone ring in hues of blue to pair with daily denim. Not every piece she owns needs to be a showstopper; in fact, the more elegant, simple jewelry is often the accessory that gets worn the most. Gift Mom with something indispensable this year that's she'll continue to wear day in and day out!
