Fashionable Reminders
Mom might need a little help in the fashion department (hello, mom jeans). A local expert shares the latest jewelry trends and Mother's Day gifts to warm her heart and wake up her wardrobe.

Flowers are a nice way to show you care, but when it comes to a Mother's Day present, jewelry won't be wilting in a matter of days. But that's not the only reason why jewelry makes such a wonderful present for moms.

 

"When I have on something that I know my children gave me, I think of them and it just makes me smile," says Mary Jo Stelzer, assistant in sales and merchandising for The Richter & Phillips Company. And at Richter & Phillips, they have specific pieces of jewelry to customize a woman's jewelry to include her children.

 

One of the most popular ways to incorporate kids is in a charm bracelet. Pandora bracelets range from leather to 14-karat gold, providing multiple price points for various budgets. Adding a twist to the traditional charm bracelet, Pandora bracelet "charms" are individual beads you can select to customize your piece. The beads start at $25, and you can select specific styles to represent specific children. Then, you can accessorize your accessory with various beads, like Murano glass beads.

Available in white and yellow golds accented by diamonds, these cutie booties can show your motherhood pride. You also can enhance the shoes with other whimsical charms, ranging from stars and hearts to lady bugs and frogs.

 

Beyond the bracelets, both Pandora and Aaron Basha beads and charms can accent necklaces. This flexibility allows you to adorn your neck with your individualized preferences.

 

If the neck and wrist don't fit your fancy, Pandora also is known for their stackable rings. These gemstone laden rings can show off the birthstones of your kids in individual rings that stack on top of each other. These versatile pieces allow you to mix and match the rings to be worn together or separately.

 

In addition to jewelry that recognizes the children, many children and fathers come into Richter & Phillips to select a specific piece of jewelry based on the mothers' style and preferences and don't necessarily take the kids into account, Stelzer says. In these instances, diamond stud earrings work well as presents, 050310FASHION4.jpgas they are staple pieces in a woman's jewelry wardrobe. And watches like the Michelle watches always make a nice gift, Stelzer says.
