A fabulous personalized Mother's Day gift is a star sign necklace by Brooke Gregson featuring a textured gold disc set with diamonds, mimicking the pattern of the stars in her astrological sign. It is a beautiful piece of Mother's Day jewelry that is personal, stylish and sophisticated.
Mismatched earrings are a big trend this spring and they don't come more luxurious than these deconstructed sapphire and diamond earrings from Maison Margiela. Available from online designer jewelry store Ylang 23, one earring features a deep blue sapphire and, if she turns the other cheek, a shimmering halo of diamonds appears. Ylang 23 also stocks ethical fine jewelry by Monique Péan, including this pair of unique earrings crafted out of fossilized woolly mammoth ivory, cognac diamonds and recycled rose gold.
These pink sapphire earrings by New York-based husband and wife design duo Roule & Co are available from online luxury marketplace 1stdibs. Part of Roule & Co's signature Shaker collection, the earrings feature loose pink sapphires, suspended within golden lattice cages, that jiggle when you move.
East meets West in Mizuki's original fine jewelry, with an aesthetic that blends the designer's Japanese heritage with the edginess of New York City, where she now resides. The Tahitian pearl necklace from the Sea of Beauty collection, set with a single black pearl, is a cool alternative to a traditional white string of pearls.
Zaiken jewelry is all about "the beauty of contrast" and this emerald and yellow gold necklace, created in collaboration with Gemfields, is set with emeralds on the front and white diamonds on the reverse - a tactile Mother's day gift that, every time she turns it over in her fingers, will remind her of you.
