Mother's Love Rings

My mother loved her rings. She cherished a mother's ring. It had the birthstones of her won and her children's. Though my sister died when I was a little girl, her birthstone was off to one side of the ring. My mother's birthstone was in the center. A shiny garnet stone placed nicely in the center. It was a larger gem compared to the side gems. She said that it was the larger not because she was the center of our universe, but because I shared the same birthstone as she did. This is why the stone was larger, to make room for the two of us. On the other side of my mother's ring was my brother's birthstone. Tiny diamonds outlined the birthstones. It was a beautiful ring she wore most everyday.

Mother's rings are still very popular. There is something special about wearing a ring with the birthstones of your children on the ring.

Types of Birthstones

Are you familiar with your birthstone?

Birthstones vary between the ages of time and cultures. These are the birthstones for the USA modern day by cultures.

January: garnet

February: amethyst

March: aquamarine, bloodstone

April: diamond

May: emerald

June: pearl, moonstone, alexandrite

July: ruby

August: peridot

September: sapphire

October: opal, tourmaline

November: topaz, citrine

December: turquoise, zircon, tanzanite

Garnet is a nice rich red stone. However, it is not my favorite, so when I would get a necklace or ring as a gift that went with birthday it was nice, but I would have rather had an amethyst, opal or a ruby.

Is your birthstone your favor type of stone or do you like one of the stones for the other months?

This Mother's Day, consider giving your mother or mother of your children an eternity ring. An eternity ring is a continuous line of identically cut gemstones. This ring symbolizes never ending love. Gold Coast Jewellery has a beautiful eternity ring of ruby and diamonds. It is a beautifully eloquent three stone eternity style ring set.

I would not complain if a family member would surprise me with this Mother's Day special Ruby and Diamond Eternity Ring that retails for $439, with an online special of $352. To top that off, when using Mother’s Day Vouchers, there is an extra 15% savings to give this ring a special price of $299.20. A ruby is not my birthstone but a favor stone of mind.

      This was very nice. Our mothers deserve the most love and respect we can give them. They gave us life and we owe them so much. Thanks for bringing attention to our mothers who do greatly deserve it.
