Since the beginning of time, moms across the world have rocked everything from physics to ruling empires, all while making sure the kids were safe, loved and cared for.
Although I’m no scientist or empress, I am a mother and a purveyor of fine jewelry. With Mother’s Day approaching, there’s nothing I love more than assisting people in discovering the perfect treasures for the extraordinary women in their lives. Sometimes that can actually be quite difficult. We all know how we feel about our mom. She’s admired for her strength, courage and patience. Plus, we’re grateful for all she’s done for us. But trying to translate all those feelings into the magic of precious gemstones and metals can be tricky, especially since each mom is so unique. That’s why I’ve written this guide for you, featuring a selection of gift ideas which will make your mom’s heart sing. So, let’s get started.
For the Worldly Mom
If your mom adores traveling the globe and is always planning her next adventure, you can hardly go wrong with something from John Hardy. Every piece is inspired by the beauty of Bali and its time-honored jewelry-making traditions. Hand-crafted by master artisans, John Hardy jewelry has a distinct luster and shine of its own, which can be seen in this Classic Chain Reversible Birthstone Bracelet. Featuring glittering birthstones on one side and black sapphires on the other, this bracelet will beautifully compliment your mom’s world-class wardrobe, sending her off in style.
For the Sentimental Mom
Is your mom the type to commemorate every occasion, whether it’s an anniversary or her niece’s first school play? If you said “yes” to this question, something from Monica Rich Kosann would be perfect. These sentimental pieces blend the idea of personal storytelling with striking beauty, creating jewelry that’s gorgeous and empowering. Allow your mom to tell a unique story of her own with this stunning Gold Petite Locket. On the outside, a dazzling rose-cut diamond shines amidst lustrous 18-Karat yellow gold. Inside the locket, there’s room for your mom to place a small picture which holds special significance to her.
For the Creative Mom
This is the kind of mom who loved feeding your vivid imagination as a child and encouraged you to always think outside of the box. She adores truly unique ideas and because of that it can be hard to find something for this innovative woman. If you can relate to this, consider the bold and original designs of Le Vian. Blending distinct metals with sumptuous colored gemstones, Le Vian creates pieces that dazzle with distinctive beauty. One of my absolute favorite things about Le Vian is their chocolate diamonds. This fabulous ring, for instance, features 7/8 carats of delicious chocolate diamonds and 1/4 carats of vanilla diamonds, all set in luscious 14-Karat strawberry gold.
For the Practical Mom
She taught you all the important lessons in life, like how to do laundry, cook, patch your clothes and balance your budget. Maybe you didn’t find these tasks to be the most thrilling activities as a kid, but as a grown-up you appreciate the knowledge mom passed on to you. Now, it’s time to give her something extra special to say “thank you”. For her, there’s our shimmering selection of Hearts on Fire Jewelry, more specifically, this Hearts on Fire Fulfillment Pendant Necklace. The glimmering center diamond is encircled by nine smaller diamonds, creating a halo of light. The necklace’s sparkle is radiant and elegant, extremely fitting for a mom who is low-key but still shines.
