Mother’s Rings are tributes a mother proudly displays to represent her children and are as unique as each family. Traditionally, mother’s rings were 2 bands with stones between that represented the birth months of her children. But today, mother’s rings are even more diverse, elaborate and are works of great art and beauty. Mother’s rings have gained a spot on our best gifts for Mother’s Day 2010 because they are beautiful, unique ways to represent a mother’s love as well as children’s love for their mother.
At the very heart of a mother’s ring are the stones that represent her children. These stones are usually the birthstones of each child. Birthstones are assigned by month of birth and are: January-garnet, February-amethyst, March-bloodstone or aquamarine, April-diamond, May-Emerald, June-moonstone or pearl, July-ruby, August-peridot, September-sapphire, October- opal or tourmaline, November-topaz or citrine and December-turquoise or blue topaz. Occasionally, the parents’ birthstones are added to the ring.
While referred to as mother’s rings, there are many options for pieces of mother’s jewelry. The same setting with birthstones of the children can be used in pins, bracelets and earrings. Since every family has different number of children with different birthdays, every piece of mother’s jewelry is unique. Custom created pieces offer one more layer of uniqueness. This best gift for mother’s day 2010 can be a piece of jewelry that becomes a lasting and cherished family keepsake.
Stones set in mother’s rings or mother’s jewelry can be very inexpensive pieces of colored glass or can be genuine gems. As you can imagine, the value of a mother’s ring set with stones for 3 children each born in the month of April will be quite a valuable and perhaps expensive piece. Added to the quality, price and options for creating a mother’s ring are the choice of setting and metal. Mother’s rings may be set into any 10, 14 or 24K white or gold setting, as well as platinum. Generally, silver is considered to be too soft for the setting of a piece of fine jewelry and the choice of metal for a mother who favors the silver color is usually white gold.
Because the stone and setting choices are limitless, this gift is one of the more intensely personal gifts you can give your mother and that is why it has made our list of the best gifts for Mother’s Day 2010. A mother’s ring is more than a piece of jewelry and your mother will proudly display your symbol of love for her.
