It’s not so much that the older I get, I appreciate my mom more. It’s the older my kids get, that I’m understanding her better, her reasons for doing things, her point of view. Whether you have kids or not, Mother’s Day is a good excuse to show your appreciation – and try to see things from her perspective.
I’m the first one to admit that no mom is perfect. But we try our darn best, every single day. Whether you’re celebrating your mom, your mother in law, the mother of your lovely children — we’ve rounded up a dozen gorgeous jewelry pieces to make her shine on May 14th.
1. Sworn Fern Bracelet – Collected Edition, $100. A gorgeous statement bracelet for the mom with a green thumb. Available in brass, bronze, sterling silver and rose gold.
2. Neon hand-beaded necklace – Hook and Matter, $78. This fun piece combines Japanese and Czech glass beads and 14k gold filled findings. Wear it long or doubled – alone or layered.
3. Pearl Necklace – Laura Stark, $110. A gorgeous, timeless piece. For the mom who’s all about the pearls, but could use an update.
