4 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Mother’s Day Jewelry Gift

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12, and if you’re like a lot of people, you’ve spent the last few weeks trying to figure out the perfect gift for the mom in your life.

You want something beautiful and sentimental that will remind her of just how much she means to you every time she wears it.

Finding that just-right jewelry gift doesn’t have to be as hard as it may seem when you’re staring at a glass case full of gorgeous options. Here are 4 tips to help you choose the right Mother’s Day gift for that special lady in your life:

Go for Meaning

While it’s possible to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a piece of jewelry for Mother’s Day, that isn’t necessary.

Spend some time thinking about the things she loves. If she’s a big fan of roses, a necklace with a rose-shaped pendant is a great choice.

Or maybe she’d love something with the birthstones of all her children. A mother’s ring or bracelet with all these stones is an option.

If she loves to travel or has a lot of varied interests, a charm bracelet that she can add to whenever she takes a new trip or as she collects cute charms might be perfect.

Check Her Style

Is Mom a big jewelry-wearer, sporting necklaces, rings, and bracelets on a daily basis? Or does she prefer to go minimalist and save the bling for special occasions?

No matter how beautiful the piece you choose, if you give her a piece of jewelry that doesn’t fit her lifestyle, it isn’t going to be worn.

Take some time to think about her typical jewelry wear, as well as the style. Maybe she prefers shining stones and pretty pendants, or she’s more a minimalist with simple chains.

Choose the Purpose

Do you want to give her something you’re likely to see her wearing on a daily basis? Or are you going more for a special occasion piece?

The two types of jewelry have very different goals and looks, and gifting her a special-occasion piece and intending it for everyday wear may leave you disappointed when you don’t see it that often.

As a rule of thumb, jewelry that’s intended more for everyday wear tends to be a little less elaborate and sparkly, leaning toward simple metals and small stones. Special occasion jewelry relies heavily on statement pieces, such as large stones, lots of stones, or big designs.

Don’t Fear Color

When most people think of gifting jewelry, they envision diamonds and pearls. These neutral colors are great for a variety of outfits and occasions, but having too many plain-colored pieces means mixing it up is difficult.

Choose her favorite color, or one that coordinates well with a color she wears often. This gives some variety to spice up neutral-colored and colorful outfits, increasing the chance that she’ll wear your gift on a more frequent basis.

There are tons of great options to build color into your jewelry pieces, so look around and don’t be afraid of something bold!
