How do we express our appreciation for the woman who gave us everything? Our moms made us who we are today, taught us confidence, instilled our values, and demonstrated what it means to love. Ideally, we’d remember to say thank you to our moms every day, but I’m grateful to have a special day designated each year to celebrate moms.
I’ve always believed that the best gifts are the ones that come with an extra personal touch. That little bit of thoughtfulness makes all the difference in taking a gift from ordinary to extraordinary. This Mother’s Day, I’ve selected a few pieces that do just that. These delicate beauties are sure to melt her heart and be worn lovingly for years to come.
Veiled Horizon with Specialty Gemstones
The Veiled Horizon necklace features a simple and elegant curve imitating the earth’s vista. Carefully crafted through Kristen’s signature melting and forming process, each one is as unique as the woman who wears it.
This piece is lovely on its own, but it can also be customized with specialty stones to make it extra personal. Consider adding a petite diamond for each member of your family or a colorful birthstone for each of her children! Mom will cherish this simple and thoughtful piece and relish sharing the hidden meaning with all who admire it.
Gold and Diamond Ring Stack
Recently, a client came to me with the most touching idea that I simply had to share. She’s building a special ring stack, one ring for each of her children. She wants her kids to see her wearing her stack regularly. When they’re grown up, she will pass one ring on to each of them. Then, she can see them enjoying the rings she once wore. How beautiful is that!
Ring stacks make a great group gift, and this is one that keeps on giving. Diamond and gold bands such as the Crown of Daisies, Footprints in the Sand, and Ebb and Flow rings are ideal for mixing and matching. They’re also available in every shade of gold - yellow, white, rose - and platinum. Don’t be shy about mixing metals, especially for the mama who loves color!
Customized Mini Splash Gem Bangle
The Mini Splash Gem Bangle is one of my earliest pieces and continues to be a classic. Recently, I created an extra-sweet commission piece based on this design which I lovingly named Daughter’s Become Mothers.
In 2020, Jeana’s mother was in the final stages of liver failure due to an auto-immune disease. She was a candidate for a liver transplant and, miraculously, she was matched within nine days. Today, Jeana’s mom is strong, healthy, and grateful every day. Jeana says “One thing my mom always says she is grateful for is the chance to see her daughters become mothers and have a relationship with her grandkids.” This touching commission features the birthstones of all of Jeana’s mom’s grandchildren. You can read the full story on my blog. (Warning: Make sure you have tissues!)
I absolutely loved customizing this cuff and would love creating a special version for your mom as well!
Petite Lavender and Precious Fleur Necklaces
A necklace stack is also a beautiful option for Mother’s Day. The Petite Lavender Gem Necklace is available in any birthstone. Choose a stack with one for each child. Alternatively, consider a matching set for the whole family. Each daughter can wear a Petite Lav with her gemstone and Mom can wear a custom Precious Fleur. This elegant yet stunning piece is crafted to imitate the flowering vines that cover the fields and buildings of Lacoste, France. It also symbolizes the roots of your family and the ties that bind you together.
Available in Sterling silver and every shade of gold, it also comes with optional added diamonds for extra sparkle. While the standard version features three fleurs, you can customize the piece with one flower for each member of your family.
