Birthstone Jewelry for Mom

Birthstone jewelry will always have a special place on the list of gifts for Mothers. You can purchase items set with your favorite mom's birthstone, or with the birthstone of her husband or kids. Or, just pick the stone that corresponds to her favorite color! There are many birthstone necklaces that are available for Mother's Day and other gift-giving holidays in every price range.

Tips for Picking Out Jewelry for your Mom

It can be tough to buy the perfect piece of jewelry for a loved one. However, if you spend some time observing what kinds of jewelry your Mom normally wears, you can find something that fits her style to give her for Mother's Day. Spend some time with your Mom (or even look at pictures if you don't live nearby) and ask yourself the following questions:

  • What type of metal does she like? Does your Mom wear yellow gold, or is all her jewelry silver and white gold? Some people have a strong preference for one or the other.
  • What does she wear on an ordinary day? Does she wear earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or some combination of them all? And, if you are interested in buying a pair of earrings, make sure she has pierced ears before making your purchase!
  • What does she wear for a special occasion? When she gets dressed up, does she wear more jewelry? You may want to get her something that would be more appropriate on formal occasions than when she is wearing jeans at the grocery store.
  • Does she have a special piece of jewelry that she always wears? If your Mom has a favorite necklace that she never leaves home without, buying her another necklace for Mother's Day may not be the best choice. However, you could look for a pair or earrings or bracelet that would go with it!

This bracelet is made with Swarovski crystal and silver beads. It incorporates six birthstone beads that you can choose. After making your purchase, you will be contacted for information about what colors you are interested in. This gives a lot of flexibility. Make each bead a different color to represent different family members, or choose one stone for a more unified look.


Heart Pendants for your Wife or Girlfriend

If you are buying a Mother's Day present for your wife or girlfriend, you may want to get a piece of jewelry that is a little more romantic. Classic, simple heart pendants are a beautiful way to show your love. As with other jewelry gift ideas, it is a good idea to start by paying attention to what type of jewelry she wears before making a purchase. Even heart pendants can range from very simple to ornate. Matching the item you pick to her personal taste will ensure a great Mother's Day. She will love the effort you put in to finding something that you think she will love!

How Much Should I Spend on a Mother's Day Gift?

In tough economic times, it can be hard to find the money for gifts, no matter how much you would love to spend it. Ultimately, you should spend as much on a Mother's Day gift as you can afford to spend. Your mom will understand if you can't afford to spend hundreds of dollars on pricy diamond jewelry and get her cubic zirconia instead. In fact, she'd probably be thrilled with a handwritten card!

Many people consider holidays like Mother's Day and Valentine's Day to be "Hallmark Holidays" that exist only to boost sales for card companies. Whether or not this is true, it is a nice idea to set time aside to appreciate your loved ones and tell them how important they are to you. A simple gift and a phone call can be just as meaningful as something expensive.
