There’s a reason 14 karat gold has been a prized possession over all these years. It doesn’t tarnish, it shimmers with minimal effort, and it has the ability to last a lifetime. Gold plated, Sterling Silver, and 10k gold are all good options and will still get a wow, but check back in 1-3 years and you likely have a chipped, tarnished, or even rusting piece. I’ve been wearing a 14kt gold necklace for over 12 years with zero maintenance, and it’s still shimmering like you’d never believe. Take a look below!
One of the easiest and potentially meaningful gifts is a birthstone piece. What month was this mother born in? Here’s a breakdown to make it easy. Keep in mind there are often a couple (or more) for each month!
January - Garnet
February - Amethyst
March - Aquamarine/Blue Topaz
April - Diamond, White Topaz, Quartz
May - Emerald, Agate
June - Pearl, Moonstone, Alexandrite
July - Ruby
August - Peridot, Spinel
September - Sapphire
October - Opal, Tourmaline
November - Topaz, Citrine
December - Blue Topaz/Zircon, Tanzanite, Turquoise
We have a wide variety of products in Jewelmak Shop that cover a giant age range. Across all, the classic styles are always a hit due to their versatility. Some gemstones that fall under this are Pearls, Black Onyx, Diamonds, and Blue Topaz (honorable mention to Jade, which is a bit more specific). We’ve made sure to include these in our gifting guide, but you can also browse by gemstone to see everything we currently offer for these gemstones.
Our trend reports and sales help us get an idea of what people are buying for Mother’s Day. Our main findings are two particular types of jewelry. Sorry it’s a repeat, but Pearls are back in a big way, and we’re certain mom’s are glad to hear that. Our pearls are AAA grade and absolutely gorgeous, especially when paired with yellow gold. Secondly, chandelier styles are hugely popular in 2022 too.
Much like birthstones, a simple question to think about is: What is my mom’s favorite color/gemstone? If unsure, we recommend the simple palette: white/pearls, diamonds, black onyx. If you’re sure enough that mom loves color, go multi-gemstone for the wide variety. Summer is right around the corner, after all! Check out our Candy Collection for multicolored pieces. You can browse by color and/or gemstone our site to help make the decision easy!
Ask for help!!
Most importantly, asking for help is always an option! I’m not even recommending asking us, but we do have chat support readily available to help you pick the perfect item out, from getting more specific sizing, to brainstorming ideas. But you can also ask your friends and family for opinions. If you’re getting a 14k piece that will last a long time, you want to make sure you get it right!
