Since its creation in 1908, the Mother’s Day memorial holiday has become a tradition in both the United States and abroad. In the U.S., we set aside the second Sunday of May as a day to honor motherhood and all the hard work that our moms do. The tradition has evolved into a celebration of gift-giving, card-giving and breakfasts in bed. When it comes to gifts, something a little sparkly never goes wrong, so here’s a list of great gift ideas to help you get the perfect piece for your mom!
The Classic: Every woman needs pearls to add to her accessories collection and we love the understated chic of mabe pearls. These classic button earrings are totally timeless and wonderfully wearable for any occasion.
The Trendsetter: If mom is the trendsetting type, try the bolder organic designs of New York based brand Ippolita. Artistic cuts of gemstones, fashion-forward shapes and a casual chic vibe set these styles apart from traditional looks.
The Ultra-Chic: Nothing beats Bvlgari for the mom who’s a high fashion fanatic. Classic Italian design and quality craftsmanship culminate in styles that combine comfort with chic. We love this two-tone Alveare bracelet – it takes even the simplest look into statement-making territory and pairs well with either white or yellow jewelry.
The Bohemian: Natural amber in an easy design is a great idea for the mom with an artistic side. The large polished cabochons of earth-toned amber are set in a simple, no-fuss bracelet for a look that is breezily Bohemian.
The Animal Lover: Kittens and puppies and bunnies, oh my! A great animal brooch will make a perfect gift for the mother who adores the animal kingdom. Sweet sculptured styles combine charm with fashion so she can show her love to the world!
The Preppy: From the golf course to the yacht club, we picture our preppy mom rocking this classic and sporty style from American designer David Yurman. Sterling silver and yellow gold form an understated watch with a flash of diamonds that is perfect for the mom who loves classic lines and subtle style.
The Casual: Easy, straightforward and carefree chic, we love a simple bracelet as an indulgent treat for even the most informal of moms. Light links in yellow gold are doable for everyday and will add just a touch of luxury to the lady who favors a casual look.
The Sentimental: A sweet as can be treat that is full of loving sentiment, a locket is an ideal present to show your affection for your mother. A delicate floral style that can be personalized with engraving on the back, simply place a picture inside to create a touching and unique memento that mom will treasure forever.
