A Special Touch: Finding The Perfect Mother’s Day Jewellery

Although every day is a chance to show appreciation for mothers, national celebratory days such as Mothers day provide the perfect opportunity to put your emotions into action. Words of affection and acts of service are equally incredible ways to show your appreciation to a mother, guardian or female role model in your life, but if you want to give a gift of love, jewellery may be the perfect touch. 

The Significance of Mother’s Day

Mother's Day is a celebration honouring mothers and motherhood, as well as the maternal bonds that exist in families. It's a day to recognise and appreciate the countless sacrifices, love, and care that mothers provide to their children and families. The significance of Mother's Day lies in acknowledging the pivotal role mothers play in nurturing, guiding, and shaping the lives of their children. It is an opportunity for people to express their gratitude and affection towards their mothers, grandmothers, and other maternal figures in their lives. It's a day to show appreciation through gestures such as gifts, cards, acts of service, or spending quality time together. Beyond individual expressions of gratitude, Mother's Day serves as a societal acknowledgment of the importance of mothers and the value of their contributions to families and society as a whole.

Giving someone a gift is a tangible way to show them how much you care about them. It conveys emotions and sentiments that words alone might not fully express. The element of surprise that comes with receiving a gift can bring immense joy and happiness to the recipient. It's a delightful feeling to receive something unexpected that has been chosen with care and consideration. 

Stylistic Gifting Ideas

If you are stuck for choices when buying a piece of jewellery, here are some ideas that could be a huge success. 

A beaded necklace is a simple and elegant piece that is both versatile and unique. Our beaded necklaces come in a variety of stones, so whether you want a vibrant Carnelian or a monochrome Clear Quartz, we have you covered. Our beaded necklaces can be worn in a variety of different ways to suit different styles or moods. They can, of course, be worn in the classic way, which is as a dainty necklace, but they can also be used as the chain for a pendant to sit on. This will add another layer to your necklace and is the perfect way to combine two pieces. Alternatively, you can wrap a beaded necklace round your wrist a few times, to make it into a beaded bracelet.

Some of our bracelet styles are equally ideal to buy as a gift and are appropriate for a variety of different ages and styles. A single stone bracelet will show the beauty and magnificence of whichever stone you choose, while remaining a dainty piece, due to the sturdy but visually fine chains we use for this style. Likewise, our wire bracelets have a similar effect, with a single gemstone highlighted in the centre of the bracelet and beautiful fine wire wrapped decoratively around the wrist. Both of these styles can be worn on their own, but would also be appropriate to stack with other bracelets, for a more chunky look.

Classic Gemstone Options

If you are more driven by the gemstone than the piece, a beautiful and classic option to go for which will never disappoint is Rose Quartz. Stylistically, Rose Quartz is incredibly elegant and has been a favourite for years. A pale rose-blush colour, this is a gemstone that looks wonderful in all kinds of styles and designs, across different kinds of jewellery. The meaning behind Rose Quartz is equally charming. It is known as the ‘love stone’, both platonically and romantically, so this is a great one to give to a maternal figure, as a gesture to show your appreciation. 

Rainbow Moonstone is also a popular choice for jewellery, loved by people of all ages. Rainbow Moonstone is known for its mesmerising play-of-colour or adularescence, which is a phenomenon where light reflects off the internal structures of the stone, producing a rainbow-like effect. This ethereal display often includes hues of blue, purple, and sometimes even hints of yellow or pink, giving the stone a mystical and captivating appearance. Whether in a faceted or cabochon style, Rainbow Moonstone looks equally glorious and both cuts allow a full view of its colours. 

Something a Little Different 

If you want to choose something a little more unexpected, or are catering to a slightly different style, there are endless gemstone options that will add something different to any collection. Here are two unique but stunning options. 

Moss Agate is a totally underrated gemstone, with natural dendritic inclusions of iron, that grow in the stone to look like moss. It has a deep and stunning moss green colour, with each piece being totally different. If you are looking to visually add a bit of nature into a collection, this is the gemstone for you. Motherhood is natural and beautiful, as is Moss Agate. Moss Agate is the stone of abundance and new beginnings. 

Another beautiful patterned gemstone to go for is Malachite, an enchanting bright green with the most incredible and intricate patterns. Malachite’s patterns vary hugely - sometimes they are seen in swirls, other times in straight stripes and sometimes in completely random designs. If you are wanting to add a pop of colour and vibrancy, Malachite could be a great gemstone to consider. Less commonly, it can be seen in a druzy form. Malachite is associated with transformation and cleansing. 

Quality time and a conversation is always the most important part of a maternal relationship and this is the time to reflect on and appreciate any figure in your life that has fulfilled this role. If you are looking to go the extra mile however, the gift of a crystal with a beautiful meaning behind it is a thoughtful way of showing your love.
