Buying Mom a Necklace for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner; whether you're a doting husband, fond friend, or appreciative child, chances are you want to show her that you care this May. The question is: what's the best way to do so? The fact of the matter is, every girl loves jewelry, and choosing a piece that shines as brightly as she does is a surefire way to make her smile. Recent trends show a sharp increase in the popularity of necklaces for women around this time of year, making them the perfect gift for any woman at the helm of a loving family.

To a novice, the differences separating the litany of necklaces available on the market may seem arbitrary, but that's far from the truth. While many may assume that the success of their selection boils down solely to compatibility and personal style, there are many other factors to consider before making a decision.

The most immediately apparent characteristic of any necklace is the variety chosen - this is the determination upon which all other attributes will be built upon. Common considerations to keep in mind are whether a pendant or a chain would be most suitable, and what length would be appropriate for the recipient in question; it may seem overly simplified, but even necklaces within the same category can vary wildly. Chain necklaces are a common favorite, with options that range from bold to delicate. Chokers, vastly different to those we recognize from childhood, hug the neck snugly and offer a clean look that many women appreciate. For the mother who prefers a glamorous centerpiece that makes a luxurious statement, you can't go wrong with a pendant necklace, A. Jaffe's Seasons of Love being one particularly striking option in white gold.

The next step is to decide which materials would be most pleasing to the mother in question - while diamonds are an obviously attractive choice, it may not be what is right for everyone. Pearls are a timeless, exquisite way to express your love; universally flattering and always in style, we offer a diverse collection of necklaces in this category from the mind of Steven Douglas. Another common desire is that of a necklace with the recipient's birthstone - the actual birthstone of your mother or wife, of course, will be determined by her birth month, which can be easily looked up on the internet. No matter the stone, however, you'll be able to find what you need in our showcase, from Amethyst to Topaz.

The stone, however, is only half of the matter; the precious metal it's set in will influence the look of the piece significantly. When most people consider buying a piece of fine jewelry, yellow gold tends to be what comes to mind first, but this is far from your only option in the matter. Rose gold and white gold are equally treasured options, both lending their own unique appeal - the beloved Aerial design by Hearts on Fire is available in both. Platinum is a canvas that flatters settings, skin colors, and styles across the board, and will complement any type of stone held, contributing to a final piece that is sure to charm.
