Jewelry for moms

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re trying to come up with a great gift for mother, jewelry is almost always a good choice. Even if you can’t afford emeralds and diamonds, there are still some tasteful jewelry selections available. Have you considered birthstone jewelry for mother?

Mothers birthstone ring

A mother’s birthstone ring displays birthstones of her children. Sometimes such a ring might display the birthstones of all the family members, including the mom, dad, and children. Mothers’ birthstone rings come in a wide selection of styles and prices.

Among the favorites are the mothers rings that are stackable. When a new child is welcomed to the family, another ring with the child’s birthstone can easily be worn with the existing rings or ring. Since the mothers rings are stackable, they fit together. The stackable mother’s rings are designed to complement each other well.

Mother’s birthstone necklace and mothers birthstone pendants

A mother’s birthstone necklace and mothers birthstone pendants make the perfect gift for Mother’s Day of for any other occasion when you want to tell mom that she’s special. Some of the most endearing styles include a pendant with a baby’s handprint, along with the baby’s birthstone. This would make a wonderful gift to celebrate a new addition to a family.

Another sentimental mother’s birthstone necklace or mothers birthstone pendant is the heart necklace. Some of these are made from a filigree heart in which the birthstones of all the children are encaptured. Another heart design might display the children’s birthstones on the edge of the mothers pendants.

Mother’s bracelet and birthstone charms

The Mother’s bracelet has been popular for years with moms. These might include a birthstone charm bracelet or another type of mother bracelet. The great thing about the mother’s charm bracelet is that more birthstone charms can easily be added if and when more children are born.

Personalized mothers jewelry

The personalized mothers jewelry items are really neat! The ring, bracelet, or necklace can be engraved with the child’s name and birth date, making them especially meaningful. These work especially well with the mothers rings that are stackable.

Great Mother’s Day gifts

If you’re looking for a mothers birthstone ring, a mothers birthstone necklace, mother pendants, mother bracelets, mother charms, or personalized mothers jewelry, check out the great selections below! Any would make a thoughtful gift for mother.

      I'm going to print this out and put it under my husband's pillow! I'd rather have the birthstones of my kids instead of mine since I'm not fond of citrine or topaz.

      Thanks for the hub!!

      Great ideas, Habee. My Aunt had a charm bracelet with charms for each child with the child's birthstone set in the charm -- after three kids she began adding other charms associated with family. It was a beautiful bracelet. Thanks for a walk down memory lane. Best, Sis
