Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th. Are you prepared to show Mom just how important she is? It’s difficult to put a “value” on what our mothers mean to us all, but the value of a diamond is universally recognizable. Why not show Mom she’s even more precious than the most universally valued of Mother Nature’s creations this Mother’s Day, with the gift of diamond jewelry?
Traditional Mother’s Day jewelry can take many forms, with the classic Mother’s ring or pendant topping the list of most desirable gemstone jewelry. But diamonds can make a mom feel pretty special, too, especially when they come in the form of a well-thought-out and heartfelt Mother’s Day gift. Moms are renowned for their “it’s the thought that counts” philosophy. While that’s wonderful in the days of our youth, bringing home handmade cards and macaroni portraits, now that you’re an adult, she may (rightfully) expect a little more consideration.
A pendant, earrings, or diamond tennis bracelet all make great Mother’s Day gifts. It’s a great idea to collaborate with siblings, if possible, to expand the budget and get Mom a truly impressive piece of diamond jewelry.
If your mom’s not really the diamond type (Really?) – or if she already has plenty of diamond jewelry (Too many diamonds? No such thing…) – then you might want to consider alternative gemstone jewelry. Spring is upon us, after all, and bright, sparkling pastel gemstones such as amethyst, citrine and blue topaz compliment the season, as well as spring wardrobes, nicely.
So, how do you choose a piece of fine jewelry for Mother’s Day that’s sure to “wow” her? If you’re unfamiliar with diamond and gemstone jewelry, it’s true it can be a little intimidating, but never fear. It’s just jewelry shopping – not rocket science. Though, naturally, you want to know that you’re getting the most value for your money (Mom taught you to be a responsible consumer, after all.)
The first step is to choose a reputable jewelry store, whether that be a local shop or online. It’s simple enough to evaluate a jewelry website and research customer reviews, and know that you’re dealing with a trustworthy retailer.
The next step is to step back and think about your mom. What’s her favorite color? What’s her style? Which piece of diamond or gemstone jewelry is the one that’s really going to make her face light up? Regardless, she’s going to be delighted – it’s the thought that counts, after all – but you’ll know you’ve outdone the macaroni artwork when she continually wears her new diamond or gemstone jewelry. We still recommend the handmade Mother’s Day card.
