Mothers are marvellous creatures and, as such, displays of affection should be similarly fabulous. While there are many ways to tell a mother she is loved through jewellery - lockets hiding tiny photographs, a homemade friendship bracelet - my selection of modern, luxurious and downright cool Mother’s Day jewellery is the fun way to get the message across.
For mums who appreciate the humour of an emoji, why not blow her a kiss with a piece by Alison Lou? Her gold and ruby pendant is sure to brighten your mum’s day, as is the smiley face diamond ring by Rosa de la Cruz. A range of Sydney Evan jewellery also features some fun pieces that spell out messages of love and encouragement, as well as a rose gold, diamond and ruby ring that spells out I Heart U.

Continuing the playful, childish theme in luxurious materials is the new Memories collection by Kiki McDonough, which sets sweet, cartoonish diamond pavé creatures on gold bracelets. No mother could look at the duck bracelet and fail to be taken back to cherished bath-time memories.
For more sophisticated reminders of her brood that she can wear every day, a failsafe piece of Mother’s Day jewellery is a design that stylishly incorporates children’s initials. New York jewellery brand Sarah Chloe, which was in fact named after designer Zahava Reismin’s first daughter, has a great selection of initial jewellery, including simple letter stacking rings that can be added with the birth of each new child, and gold open rings from the Rocha collection that can be engraved with two initials.
And for those mothers out there with a healthy sense of humour, or perhaps a love of irony, why not take a classic bad-taste jewel and turn it on its head with a purchase from trendsetting jewellery designer Jennifer Meyer, who has solid gold and diamond necklaces at the ready for mums, moms and mommies.
