For pure sentimental sway, nothing beats the gift of something engraved with the names of Mom’s kids. Choose a pendant, charm, ring or bracelet and she’ll not only have a token of familial love, but a dazzling style statement besides.
Traditional: Birthstone jewelry

Brightly hued gems mark each child’s birth month, a sweet symbolism that sparkles from all manner of jewelry styles: Usually pendant bars, hearts or charms suspended from delicate necklaces. Channel-set birthstone rings are another beautiful way to show off the brood.
Traditional: “Mom” jewelry
Bing: “Mom” jewelry
This year, gift her with a bauble that gets your message across in a very literal way. Choose from swirling cursive pieces where the metal crafts the letters, or engraved pendants and charms (variations on “Mom,” “Mother,” or the classic “World’s Best Mom”) that spell it out for her.
Traditional: Loving Family pendants

The forms may be on the abstract side, but the love and togetherness they represent is utterly real. This line of figurative pendant necklaces is offered in many variations, representing the diversity of the modern family, and the softly sculptural designs pair well with Mom’s casual and elegant outfits.
Traditional: Heart lockets
Bing: Heart lockets
A classic bit of feminine finery that stretches back centuries, the heart locket is an ideal Mother’s Day gift. It’s obviously a symbolic shape, expressing your love for her, but it’s really what’s inside that counts: A treasured family photo or lock of baby hair will stay close to her heart.
Traditional: Initial pendants
Bing: Initial pendants
Mom knows her ABC’s, and there are always certain letters of the alphabet more special to her than others. Loop her kids’ initials over a necklace strand and you’ve made the grade. Choose sparkling letters inlaid with channel-set crystals or little metal charms etched with monograms.
Traditional: Pearl necklaces
Bing: Pearl necklaces
A strand of pearls isn’t necessarily symbolic, but it’s one of the most essential pieces of jewelry in any woman’s wardrobe, both classy and classic. It’s also a very elegant pick for a younger mom graduating from trendy costume jewelry to the more grown-up world of elegant adornment.
Traditional: Stud earrings gift set
Know a mother whose jewelry box is stuffed to the brim, or one who’s difficult to buy for? You can still stun ‘em with sparkle: Choose a set of three or more stud style earrings – usually found in affordable semi-precious stones – for a gift that offers variety and wearability.
Trendy: Statement necklaces
Nothing’s hotter right now than the big bauble. More is more, especially when it comes to necklaces, so if Mom’s a fashionista, this is the Mother’s Day to super-size her gift. These giant jewels don’t have to cost a mint: Budget-friendly fashion jewelry necklaces offer more bling for your buck.
Trendy: Stackable ring sets

Can’t-miss cocktail rings are still trendy, but this year it’s cooler to build that statement ring piece by piece. Stacked ring sets make awesome gifts, too, as they give mom a variety of looks to play with. Check out monogram or birthstone stacked rings for a hit of family history.
