Are you still looking for Mother's Day ideas? Are you searching for something beyond the conventional offerings of a handbag, flowers or scarves, and hoping for something that will bring her joy every minute of the day? Then the Ralph Lauren Stirrup Petite-Link watch is the perfect candidate.

A luxury watch that she can wear day in, day out to consult the time and - putting its practical functions aside for one moment - something so feminine that it can be worn as a piece of fine jewelry. A gift she will value for years to come. 

The Stirrup collection of Ralph Lauren watches, inspired by the American designer's passion for equestrian style, is characterised by the iconic stirrup-shaped case and is already a classic, appearing in countless declinations for both men and women since its debut in 2009.

The beauty of this particular Stirrup Petite-Link watch is its balanced blend of practicality and femininity: practical thanks to its stainless steel case made for daily wear, and feminine with its mother-of-pearl dial and glamorous jewelry bracelet made up of elegant, smooth interlocking links.

In keeping with today's marked return to smaller-sized ladies' watches to fit more delicate wrist dimensions, these Ralph Lauren watches measure just 23.30 x 27mm and sit beautifully on the wrist thanks to a fluid jewelry bracelet made up of chunky links.

Mother-of-pearl dials are also enjoying a renaissance in women's watches today, and the lovely iridescent glow of the Stirrup Petite-Link with a mother-of-pearl dial endows this watch with a warm, milky-white shimmer. The Roman indices on the dial add a touch of classic sophistication, and hours and minutes are kept in perfect time thanks to a Swiss quartz movement decorated with Côtes de Genève stripes. A quartz movement is not only more accurate than a mechanical automatic or manual-winding movement, it allows the wearer to forget about winding the watch for at least 60 months before the battery needs to be replaced.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
