You know best what sort of Mom you have … is she a sleek, chic, modern woman … an elegant-type, enthralled with flowers and cross-stitches … or something somewhere in between? If she is the traditional sort, then jewelry is an excellent choice for a Mother’s Day gift! Durable, long-lasting, and a wonderful heirloom, jewelry will appeal to your classical-style mother’s sense of quality and sentimentality. But if you have no idea where to start in the search for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for your classical Mom, read on!
Deeper colored gemstones were much more popular in traditional style jewelry, so you’ll probably go for pieces that include sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, as opposed to the more pastel stones like topaz and peridot. Start off by visiting our Mother’s Day Gift Ideas section, which you can access either through the link, or on the left hand side of every page, under the Gift Ideas subheading.
Every gift ideas section has an extremely handy product finder – you’ll notice the blue box in the middle of every page. Use the gemstone tab to refine your search to pieces including rubies, sapphires, diamonds, garnets and amber … and of course, whatever other gemstones you know your Mom likes! The Sapphire and diamond earrings pictured at the beginning of the article are a great example of a ‘classical’ sort of jewelry gift – their symmetrical styling and defined borders give them a definite old-fashioned flavor. These garnet stud earrings are another good example of a classical type of jewelry piece – cleanly and simply made, they allow the stone’s beauty to do the work in the design.
If you’d like to get something extra special for your Mom this Mother’s Day – whether it has been a hard or important year for her, or you’d just like to let her know how much you appreciate her love – you could go for something like this opal pendant and earring set. The ribbon motif is used in many classical styles, and found in Greek and Roman architecture. They are a beautiful deep, striking color – there is no need for ‘classical’ to mean ‘inconspicuous’!
If you are looking for a classically flavored Mother’s Day present on a budget this year, then garnets are a lovely way to go. These deep, mysterious stones have the appearance of dark rubies, but not the price tag. If your Mom is more of a ring-wearer than an earring or pendant type, this garnet ring is simple and beautiful. If budget is a concern, but garnets are not her thing, simply use the price slider on the price tab of the product finder to select your range, and voila! Everything is right in front of you.
If your mother likes to keep things plain and simple as well as classical, then diamonds will be her best friend. They are easy to match with all sorts of clothes, don’t require much maintenance (they can’t possibly be scratched, after all!), and just make her feel extra special. This circles diamond necklace is a lovely traditional style choice, and will not break the bank.
For those of you that always forget about Mother’s Day until it is almost here (like myself!), remember that express courier delivery is available, to get her gift there on time.
