There's something about being recognized and thanked as a mom that gets the waterworks going. For all the sentimental mothers out there, be prepared with jewelry that means more than meets the eye. A personalized necklace of her favorite flower or song lyrics is a treasure she'll wear every day. A secret message or a specific date engraved on a bracelet is unique to her — think birthdays and anniversaries. Designing a piece of fine jewelry yourself is the perfect way to Mom's heart. This year for Mother's Day, consider a gift that only you could give her: a piece of jewelry that is so uniquely for her that all the gold, diamonds, and gemstones in the world can't compete.
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!
Custom Pieces for a Unique Mom
Your mom isn't like anyone else, so why get her generic gifts? Customized jewelry can take many forms: you can get her something as simple and quick as engraving on a medallion or bar necklace in silver, gold, or rose gold. Given enough advance time, consider designing a custom piece to go with a particular outfit or existing piece of Mom's jewelry. Necklace and earring sets make getting dressed effortless and chic. Pull inspiration from her wedding band or mother's ring to design a matching bracelet or gemstone earrings. Custom jewelry has endless options — you're guaranteed to find something perfect this Mother's Day!
A Momento for the Pet Mom
There are some heated debates over whether owning a pet constitutes being a "mom" or not, but argument aside, it's a great day to say, "Thank you for always cleaning out the litter box." Gifting her with a charm locket with a photo of her fur baby is a sweet option; custom engraving your pet's name on a bracelet or bar necklace is exceptionally adorable. Any way you can incorporate your pet into the surprise will be memorable and make her the happiest pet mama in the world. Why not have a little fun celebrating your family this Mother's Day and make the day complete with some cake and dog treats?
