Mother's Day is just around the corner and there is no better time to show just how much you care than with a piece of fine jewellery that is bursting with vibrant colour. We have put together a colourful selection of Mother's Day ideas that she will treasure for years to come. Just pick her favourite colour and prepare to be dazzled by the radiant rainbow of coloured gemstones, from muted pastels to bold neons.
If she has a thing for pink, Calleija's fuchsia bright rubellite earrings offer a pretty pop of colour. And you can't go wrong with the impossibly pretty Carnation earrings from Ilgiz F for Annoushka, with intricate blooms picked out in rubies.
Turquoise is the perfect colour for spring, and a coloured gemstone cocktail ring will brighten up any outfit. This one by Fred Paris has an interchangeable system that allows the wearer to swap the turquoise cabochon for other coloured gemstones when the mood takes her, creating endless gift possibilities for years to come. Alternatively, there is the Pomellato Capri ring, which has become a cult classic for this world-famous Italian jeweller. Set with a vivid turquoise contrasted with hot pink rubies, it's a gift of fine jewellery that is guaranteed to make a big impression.
Renowned for his avant-garde designs, British jeweller Shaun Leane has collaborated with Gemfields to create a beautiful emerald ring with marquise-cut gemstones, which appear to flow around the finger. If you're looking for Mother's Day ideas for a mum whose fashion credentials are second to none, tap into the single earring trend with the Lips on Me pearl and ruby earring by Delfina Delettrez.
If bright colours don't float her boat, fear not, as there are plenty of Mother's Day ideas at the paler end of the spectrum, such as these elegant South Sea pearl earrings by Japanese jeweller Mikimoto. Or introduce your mother to one of Britain's most talented up-and-coming British designers, Alice Cicolini, whose exotic enamelled hoop earrings are embellished with opals.
