Make it Meaningful

Does mom love jewelry that is both unique and meaningful? Our new Talisman Collection pieces might be just the thing for her!  A talisman is a jewelry object that is believed to bring good luck, protect against harm, and is charged with the meaning of a chosen symbol or word.

Fierce Talisman Necklace ($65), Devoted Talisman Necklace with Garnet ($69), Crown Talisman Necklace with Moonstone ($69)

Our talisman necklaces are delicate pieces made from sterling silver that have a word, phrase, or symbol.  Some of our talismans are made from antique book pages, making them one-of-a-kind- just like mom!

Each of our symbol talisman necklaces comes with a meaning card explaining the significance behind the symbol.  Want to personalize it even more? Add some small charms from our Waxing Poetic collection, such as birthstones or initials of family members!

Foundation Tree of Life 7 oz. Candle ($16)

Our Talisman Collection also includes soy candles scented using essential oils.  Each candle comes with a booklet explaining the symbol meaning and the benefits of the essential oils used.

Charm Her

Are fine details and customizability things that mom values?  Pandora Jewelry is right up her alley!  Pandora charms and jewelry are lovingly crafted from sterling silver and Pandora Rose with hand-set stones, making a high quality piece with beautiful details.  With a wide selection of varied styles and themes to choose from, it is easy to make a custom bracelet that can represent what mom means to her family or appeal to her individual sense of style.

Each year Pandora releases a new collection geared towards Mother’s Day.  We love this year’s new additions!  The Bonds of Love jewelry pieces, featuring a stylized bow that represents that strong bond between a mother and her family, are classic and elegant.  The charm selections are also very sweet- we particularly love the mother and baby bird dangle charm.

This year’s charms have some intricate details that really make them feel special.  One example is the Perfect Home charm, which opens in to reveal the saying “Home is where MOM is.”

 

Is mom just starting out on a bracelet or is her bracelet almost full?  Check out the new Pandora open bangle!  This is our favorite Pandora piece- it is easy to put on, includes two silver stoppers to keep your charms in place, and is very comfortable and stylish!

You can wear the bangle with your favorite charms, a simple statement charm, or turn it around and wear it by itself as a cuff with no charms at all!

 

Support Our Local Family

Is mom one-of-a-kind? One of the best ways to find a unique gift to suit her tastes is to shop locally sourced treasures handmade by some of our smaller local artisans.

If mom has a special connection to Bethlehem, we have a variety of Star of Bethlehem jewelry made especially for us that would be a great way to celebrate her own roots or where she has decided to grow her family.  We love the Star of Bethlehem symbol for moms who work in the St. Luke’s network as well!

Another local favorite is one of our exclusive designers, WinterLemon Jewelry, which is handmade in Bethlehem.  These pieces are handmade from natural gemstones and many of them are one-of-a-kind!  We particularly love WinterLemon’s rose gold pieces with labradorite and moonstone for spring.

 

WinterLemon Wellness Collection Gemstone Bracelets (starting at $16)

If mom never leaves home without her stack of bracelets, WinterLemon’s new Wellness Collection is a great choice.  These stretch bracelets are made from natural gemstones and come with a card explaining the properties of the stone used.  Starting at $16, it is easy to put together a stack of complementary colors and textures to make mom smile!

Go for the Gold

Gold is back in a big way!  For the mom who is on-trend, gold jewelry is a must have. Golden tones are especially great for the sunshine loving mom who lives for those perfect summer days.  Our golden pick for Mother’s Day is Julie Vos jewelry.  Constructed of 24k gold over brass and studded with semi-precious stones, pearls, and glass, these nature and architecture inspired pieces combine classic styles with current colors and textures.

Bee Necklace ($168), Loire Pearl Station Necklace ($225), Loire Aqua Pendant Necklace ($185), Loire Aqua Station Necklace ($225), Valencia Reversible Coin Necklace ($265)

Some of the most show-stopping Julie Vos pieces are her statement necklaces.  Many of her longer layering necklaces have a special loop to allow them to easily be worn doubled, giving them an extra versatility.  The iridescent aqua pieces are our favorites- they remind us of a bright summer sky!

Milano 6-stone Bangle ($85-$125)

For the mom that prefers bracelets, Julie Vos’ stacking bangles are also a real treat!  We love creating stacks with her Milano 6-stone bangle in different colors.  The pearl and aqua blue stones make a beautiful combination!

Clara Chandelier Earrings ($165)

Another one of our favorite pieces from this season’s collection is the Clara Chandelier earrings in iridescent blue chalcedony.  The color in these earrings is so vibrant and unique!

Memory Keeper

Many say that mom is the heart of the family- she nurtures us through the important milestones of our lives and can make simple moments into lifelong memories.  We love the idea of a charm locket honor her role as memory maker and keeper.

Smooth Heart Locket ($125) with Initial ($10), Birthstone ($20) and Family ($10) petite charms.

Pandora’s Memory Locket and petite charms make it easy to create the perfect vignette for mom.  The lockets themselves are available in several different shapes and sizes and use high-quality sapphire crystal to ensure a locket that will stand the test of time without becoming scratched or cloudy.  With several family-related charms, birthstones, and the new initials collection, you can create a collection with a piece that represents everyone in your family.

Heart Key Locket ($140), Sparkling Medium Locket ($140), Petite Charms starting at $10

One of our favorite features of the sparkling lockets is that they are reversible!  Wear them sparkly side up when you are feeling like you need a little shine or wear them with the smooth silver side up when you want a more casual look.

Because She’s Your Rock

Mom is a lot like a diamond- she brings light and sparkle into our life but is also one of the strongest things in our world.  Bring a little radiance into her life with a piece of fine jewelry to show her how much you appreciate everything she represents.  Unlike costume and silver jewelry, which will not stand everyday wear over the years, a piece of gold jewelry is something that she can cherish throughout her lifetime.

When looking at fine jewelry, we love a simple silhouette to ensure that it is something that mom can wear with as much style 10 years from now as she will today.  We love this diamond solitaire necklace because it is both elegant and classic in style.

 

For something more unique, this Paraiba Tourmaline & Diamond necklace is one of our absolute favorites- this rare stone has such a unique color!  We also love this floating Marquise Diamond necklace for a very delicate look that still packs on the sparkle.

POP Diamond Bracelet ($250)

For the more active mom, the POP Diamond bracelet would make a wonderful gift.  A 0.10ct diamond is set in sterling silver on a nylon cord, making this a great choice for the mom on the go.

Home is Where Mom Is

We love our Compass Rose collection for almost any occasion, but it is particularly fitting for Mother’s Day.  The symbol of the compass embodies the ideas of guidance and coming home.  The Compass Rose tells mom that, no matter how far we may travel, our heart will always know the way back home to her.

In addition to the standard Compass Rose card, we have some wonderful mom-related cards that you can choose from.

The oxidized and colored enamel Compass Rose pendants also include the engraving on the back that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home.”

Do you think that the Compass Rose might be the perfect gift for mom?  You can see more styles here.

Your Guardian Angel

Is mom the guardian angel of your family?  Show your appreciation with a beautiful Thortiuda necklace!  Thortiuda, Thai for angel, is also called the Angel Whisperer.  Each pendant opens to reveal a colored chime whose soft tone brings peace in a  stressful world and is meant to call your angel to watch over you.  These necklaces are designed after traditional bolo necklaces worn in different cultures during pregnancy.  The chime, worn over the belly, soothes the baby and brings an angel’s protection.

Large Silver Thortiuda Pendant with CZ Accents ($209), Colored Chimes ($18 each), Crystal Encrusted Chimes ($59)

One of our favorite parts of Thortiuda is the interchangeable chimes.  Each color has its own meaning and its own sound.  Choose a color that best reflects what mom means to you!

Thortiuda pendants come in rhodium plated sterling silver, rose gold plated sterling silver, and yellow gold plated sterling silver in 3 sizes. The largest sizes is also available with CZ accents for some extra bling!
