by Lara I don't tend to think of myself as overly sentimental in general but I will admit, there is no jewellery I like better than the jewellery that commemorates my kids.
With mother's day around the corner, I thought I would share some of my well loved mom jewellery in case you are looking for ideas for your spouse (either as a gift or a request :))
I had a ring made when Kiernan was about a year old with his name and date of birth and loved it so much I had ones made when Juliette and Quinn were born. I wear them more than my wedding rings (gasp!) although my wedding ring is smaller and pinches my "will never be the same after having three children, short and stubby" fingers, so it's hardly my fault ;)
But that is neither here nor there. Back to the rings. I ordered them online from a store on Etsy called Accessory a la Mode and they are just lovely. I wear them on my thumb so I can stack all three on at once.
The last two Christmases my husband has bought me necklaces that commemorate my kids.
Last year I got a gorgeous necklace with a mama and three baby birds on a branch (in retrospect, we didn't realize there was one with a daddy bird too which would have been nice).
This year, I saw Mel's connection necklace and fell in love. I'd seen the pictures of them before but in person they are even more stunning. I asked for one for Christmas and love love love it.
I asked around and got sent a couple of images of other lovely mom jewellery other moms have.
Like this ring with one mom's son's birthstone:
And Maranda had this lovely necklace made for her daughter:
Mom jewellery is fun, not terribly expensive, and a great gift for Mother's Day!
Do you have any mom jewellery? Do you want any?
