Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I know, I know: it’s only March 9th. But in terms of creating beautiful custom jewelry, that’s just about the right amount of time to make sure we can have something made for you in time for May 8th.
One of the most common requests for Mother’s Day gifts is personalized mother’s jewelry.
But what is mother’s jewelry?
Mother’s jewelry is a piece of jewelry with a birthstone representing each of a woman’s children. Her birthstone is often included in the lineup, and sometimes the father’s. It can be a ring, a pendant, a brace-let, a brooch, earrings – any type of jewelry that can be set with stones. It can even be multiple pieces de-signed to be worn together, like small charms strung on the same necklace or stackable rings or bracelets.
What’s nice about mother’s jewelry is that, even if everyone had one, very few would be the same.
Enter Windsor custom jewelry.
Mother’s jewelry achieves such variety in two ways: the use of birthstones and the freedom of design offered by custom work.
There is an official birthstone list, with which many people are familiar. However, thinking outside the box is where commercialized becomes personalized. Many of the stones on the birthstone list come in many different colors, like garnet for January, diamond for April, sapphire for September, and tourmaline for October. June, October, and December all have multiple birthstones from which to choose, as well.
Toying with the sizes and shapes of the birthstones is another way to individualize a design for the woman wearing a piece of mother’s jewelry. Each child has their own unique personality, and picking out the gems to represent them for your custom piece of mother’s jewelry can be a fun way to spend some time together with the recipient. We have a sizeable collection of loose birthstones from which to choose.
And then there’s the layout. It can be based around the order each child was born, or it can be based on schools of design theory, or both. If you have an idea rattling around in your head, we can assist you in making it a reality: a beautiful, wearable, heirloom-quality jewel.
And, of course, the best thing about letting Windsor design a custom mother’s piece with you or one you love is that it will be one-of-a-kind. Every person has their own senses of sentimentality, esteem, and tradition that collaborate to form their individual style.
We would be honored to be a part of drawing those aspects out into a piece of custom jewelry for you, especially something as intensely personal as a piece of mother’s jewelry. We’ve been making jewelry in Indianapolis for a long time, and we’d love to offer an example of our expertise.
