Only 1 week left before its Mother’s Day, and if you’re one of those who’re still wondering what to get as a present for your mother, you may find a great option in jewelry. It’s one of those gifts that she wouldn’t be able to resist, and adding that it’s from her own child would make her feel extra special.
Gear yourself up for mother’s day jewelry gift alert. Here are top gift ideas to help you out in making a decision before the week ends whether your budget is above or below $100:
1. Heart Locket
You can go for a heart locket that can be folded up and appear as if it’s an envelope. You can place a picture of you and your mother on the inside, or a letter can be engraved with a message for her on the special day.
Even though a single letter may be enough, if you need more space for the special message, you can also find heart lockets that come with additional inserts. The inserts may feature matte on one or both sides. Heart lockets are also visually appealing, so your mother is likely to cherish this thought from you.
2. Engraved Rings
You can get her a ring that’s engraved and comes in a floral, chic design. Some retailers also offer the option of engraving online, so you can always add any symbol or letter that she is emotionally attached to.
You’ll also find a variety of rings with vibrant new gemstones, including black diamonds. Whether you’re looking for traditional diamonds, or artificial stones, you’ll find plenty of options with both online and brick and mortar jewelers.
3. Stud Earrings
Your mother can wear stud earrings at day, night, at home or when going out, so it’s a gift that she is going to use for long rather than putting it in the cabinet after a week or two. As with other types of jewelry, you’ll have a large variety to choose from.
You can get her diamond stud earrings, or if that appears out of your range, go for artificial handmade stud earrings. You may even consider dragon stud earrings if you think your mom would be bold enough to wear them.
4. Cuff Bracelets
Cuff bracelets are a great way to show her some personalized love. You can get her name printed on the cuff, or even your own name to remind her it was given by her child on mother’s day. If you don’t want a name, go for a short sentence, a phrase, or come up with a unique name for the whole family.
You’ll also have the option to choose the font in which the message is engraved, and cuff bracelets are usually on the lower side when it comes to skin reaction, so you won’t find her complaining that your gift gave her rashes later on.
5. Customized Necklaces
The latest necklaces feature unique designs and your mom will appreciate whether she has a taste for modern or classic jewelry. The chain may feature different materials such as freshwater pearls, while you can go with a pendant that has space to include pictures or names.
The sizes are also different, so you can go either for a large pendant in the middle or a medium one depending on your mother’s taste.
