Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and love is in the air! The new Pandora Valentine’s Day collection has arrived and features a fun mix of new colors, textures, and innovations. This year’s collection has some unique new focuses- the path to love, asymmetric hearts, cupid and his arrow, and being LOVED. Read on for our review of all the new products!
The charms in this year’s Pandora Valentine’s Day Collection really stand out in bright two-tone silver and Pandora Shine, soft pinks, and fuchsias.
For Pandora Rose lovers, there is a beautiful new light pink enamel and Pandora Rose two-tone charm that really stands out. We also love the new Loved Heart clip for two-tone silver and Pandora Rose bracelets! If you are enamored of the new Pandora Shine finish, you are in luck as well! Both the LOVED and cupid themed charms are accented with the bright gold of Pandora Shine. We particularly love the Arrow of Cupid Shine charm- it looks great on the choker!
We also love the new whimsical Love Dice and Love Notes charms. Letting the bright sterling silver take center stage, they are a great choice for the collector who wants just a touch of color on their bracelet.
For those who want to embrace the colors of the season, the reds and fuchsias of the Asymmetric Hearts charms offer stylish choices studded in sparkling CZs or accented with bright enamel.
Other charms in the Pandora Valentine’s Day collection in silver and include the Sparkling Arrow & Heart charm ($55) and all silver Path to Love charm ($35).
Additional charms in the two-tone Pandora Shine and sterling silver include Loved Script charm ($65).
For the Jewelry Lover
In addition to this year’s fantastic charm selections, there are are some exciting new jewelry pieces. We love the new Sparkling Arrow collection- especially that amazing ring!
The Loved Script pieces in two-tone sterling silver and Pandora Shine are also fun new additions. The necklace makes a stunning layering piece. We are tempted to buy this one for ourselves- you need to love yourself, too! 🥰
Other jewelry items include the You are Loved Heart Padlock bracelet ($75), which can be used for charms, the Small Heart of Love Hoop Earrings ($55), the Asymmetric Hearts Earrings ($50) and necklace ($75), and the Medallion of Love Ring ($55).
For the Love of Minnie
The Pandora Valentine’s Day collection also includes a mini Minnie-themed collection from Pandora Disney!
The new additions include a bracelet with a Minnie portrait clasp- a great way to wear all of your Disney charms! We love the Minnie and Mickey With Love charm with its bright fuchsia enamel background. The Minnie’s Polka Dots pendant is also adorable!
Get Gifting with Limited Edition Sets
As always, Pandora has released some great value sets with their Valentine’s Day collection. The beauty of their gift sets is that you get all the pieces you need to start your set at a lower price than the items would be individually!

This year’s Pandora Valentine’s Day collection also introduces the 2019 Club Charm and a new Pandora Friend. The club charm is the first two-tone silver and Pandora Rose addition to the club collection. Shaped like a treasure chest, it opens to reveal the message “Be Yourself.” As always, the club charm has a 0.1ct diamond.

Have Yourself a Charming Little Christmas
This year’s holiday collection includes charms for a wide range of tastes and budgets. The charms and jewelry fall into two main themes: Christmas in Space, offering whimsical celestial-themed pieces and bringing the sparkle with dazzling baguette cuts, and the Traditional Christmas charms we all love.
For the sparkle lover, the charms of the Christmas in Space collection mimic shards of ice with baguette cut cubic zirconia in scattered formations. We love the new chiseled elegance charms ($75) and Ice Sculpture spacers ($45), both available in clear or midnight blue.
Two of our other favorite charms, the Dazzling Wishes ($65) dangle and Pavé Sphere button-style charm ($75) are available both by themselves and in some of gift set offerings this year. The Dazzling Wishes charm, depicting a firework bursting in the sky, is engraved with “The Best is Yet to Come” on the reverse and makes a great pairing with the Dazzling Fireworks charm ($65). In keeping with the icy theme, the Ice Carving dangle ($55) is engraved with “You Melt My Heart” with an overhanging icy wreath.
Two well-received styles have been updated with new colors- the Sparkling Love heart charm ($75), which made its debut in the fall, is now available in midnight blue and the Dazzling Snowflake ($90) now comes in Cerise red as well.
The more whimsical part of the Christmas in Space theme celebrates the arrival of some new Pandora Friends. Bella Bot, now also available in the Pandora Shine finish ($100), is joined by her faithful companion Bobby Bot ($60). We love his moveable flap ears!
Cosmo Tommy ($75) has also joined the Pandora Friends, adding a touch of adventure to this collectible bunch. The Planet of Love charm ($55) is a limited edition piece only available during this holiday season.
For those days when the reindeers need a break, Santa can be seen cruising about in his rocket ship in the Santa in Space charm ($50). The String of Beads dangle charm ($50) is part of the Purely Pandora collection, but also fits well with these fun planetary additions.
In addition to the Ice Sculpture spacers, two new clips, the Beaded Brilliance ($45) in silver and Ice Formation ($55) in Pandora rose, have been added to the collection. The Personal Galaxy safety chain ($65) helps ensure that your bracelet is secure while you look up at the stars.
The Traditional Christmas charms this year focus on warmth and family and are accented with a beautiful berry red and white enamel. We love the new Christmas Train charm ($75)- it comes in two connected parts!
Another one of our favorites this year is the Warm Cocoa charm ($45)- how adorable is the candy cane sticking out of the whipped cream! Take a close look at the Christmas Bear charm ($45) to see Pandora’s intense detail- he is holding the same cup of warm cocoa in his hand. We also love the Merry Christmas charm ($40) as a way to celebrate the season for those who have a more neutral-colored bracelet.
Another staff favorite this year is the Cozy Christmas House dangle charm ($55). From the front it is a festive red house. Turn it around to take a peek inside the home at all of the Christmas decorations.
Rounding out the Traditional Christmas charms are the Happy Reindeer in Pandora Rose ($65), Nutcracker Dangle ($65)- great for ballerinas!- and the Perfect Christmas dangle ($55) that states “It’s not what’s under the tree that matters, it’s who’s gathered around it.”
In addition to the sterling silver and Pandora Rose charms, two new 14k yellow gold charms have been added in this year’s holiday collection.
The Heart of Luxury clip ($450) has beautiful pavé accents and a cut-out heart at the center. The Glowing with Love charm ($350) features cut-out hearts with the word “Love” in script at the center.
Deck Your Neck (and Ears and Fingers!)
Like this year’s charms, the holiday collection jewelry can be grouped in two main themes: Purely Pandora, focusing on a minimalist look in smooth silver, and Luminous Ice, featuring the same baguette-cut CZs that added an icy look to many of the charms.
We love the simple aesthetic of the Purely Pandora pieces. The Contemporary Pearl necklace ($90) and Hoop Earrings ($90) would make a great set for the girl who likes a streamlined look that focuses on the beauty of shining sterling.
The Luminous Ice pieces are perfect for the girl who likes a little sparkle in her life. The Glacial Beauty Drop earrings ($90) are gorgeous in person and show off the on-trend forward facing hoop style. The Shards of Sparkle necklace ($125) is a beautiful companion piece that would make anyone’s holiday merry and bright.
The necklaces category also sees the addition of a new Cross Pendant ($60) with a sparkling tapered bale and an engraved necklace with the script engraving “Blessed” ($75).
The Purely Pandora collection also includes an innovative new Y-necklace, String of Beads ($75) with an adjustable length and movable beads. The Contemporary Pearls necklace in Pandora Rose ($225) is another beautiful selection for someone whose style leans more towards the simple and classic. For someone who likes a more sentimental gift, the Moon and Stars necklace ($115) is a wonderful choice- emblazoned with sparkling stars, it opens to reveal the message “Love you to the moon and back.”
The Luminous Ice pendants, available in silver ($65) and Pandora Rose ($75), offer a petite flash of sparkle.
The Luminous Ice collection also includes a beautiful interpretation in the rings available in both the sterling silver ($75) and Pandora Rose ($100) finishes.
The Glacial Beauty ring ($100) is a new stackable design that complements the Luminous Ice collection with a row of baguette cut CZ stones.
Other additions to the ring collection include the Contemporary Pearl ring in Pandora Rose ($90), String of Beads Ring ($50), Contemporary Pearl cuff ring ($65), and Shards of Sparkle ring ($75).
Some of our favorite pieces in this year’s holiday jewelry are in the earrings category. We love the Lunar Light stud earrings ($50) and Luminous Ice stud earrings ($60) for a touch of everyday sparkle. The Glacial Beauty drop earrings are a gorgeous statement piece ($90).
From the Purely Pandora collection, the Contemporary Pearl Hoops in silver ($90) and Pandora Rose ($115) add a modern twist to an old standard. The Classic Beads stud earrings ($45) and String of Beads hoop earrings ($50) continue the smooth beaded design. One of the most innovative earring designs is the String of Beads dangle earrings ($65), which can be pulled to change the length of the dangling beads.
Pandora has also added two new sliding bracelet designs this year. The String of Beads bracelet from the Purely Pandora collection ($65) features graduated beads in bright sterling silver. The Glacial Beauty sliding bracelet ($100) is a stunning sparkling piece with scattered baguette cut CZs.
The open bangle also has a new design for Disney lovers- the end caps are cute Mickey and Minnie portraits ($125).
Mickey Clause is Coming to Town
This year’s Disney additions focus on classic Mickey and holiday celebrations. There are also some new charms to showcase the Mary Poppins Returns movie coming out this year!
Mickey and Minnie’s sparkling portraits are now available as clips ($90), which look great as stationary pieces on a bangle or leather bracelet. The Steamboat Willie ($65) portrait charm is part of the celebration of Mickey’s origins and the Sorcerer Mickey ($65) dangle charm honors one of his most famous roles. We love that this year’s Disney additions include some overtly Christmas beads, including the Santa Mickey charm ($65), Santa Mickey’s Candy Cane dangle ($65), and Santa Mickey & Gift Bag dangle ($65).
Disney has also expanded into the Essence collection with the two-tone silver and Pandora Rose Mickey and Minnie portrait charms ($50).
This year’s Limited Edition charm ($100) celebrates Mickey’s 90th birthday. Packaged in a special box, it shows mickey leaning against a golden “90”- he looks good for his age!
For those anxiously awaiting the new Mary Poppins movie, these three charms are a delight! We love Mary Poppins’ bag ($50), which is covered in flowers and bears her name on the bottom. The Mary Poppins Silhouette charm is distinctive in bright enamel colors ($65) and the Umbrella dangle ($70) focuses on one of her iconic symbols.
We also love the new Mickey and Minnie nesting rings! The sparkling Minnie silhouette and bow ($65) fits above the Minnie silhouette ($50).
Sometimes the Best Things Come Already Packaged
One of the highlights of the Pandora holiday collection is always their beautiful gift sets. This year’s additions include two bracelet gift sets, a jewelry gift set, and this year’s Limited Edition 2018 charm.
The Luminous Ice jewelry gift set ($140) includes the Luminous Ice pendant and earrings and a 45cm sterling silver chain, for a savings of $25.
The Dazzling Wishes gift set includes the Pandora Smooth bracelet, Dazzling Wishes dangle charm, and two Shining Elegance clips. At $179 it offers a savings of $66.
The set is presented in a beautiful white leatherette travel box with room for your bracelet, earrings, and necklaces.
Our favorite set is the Wintry Holiday Open Bangle set, which includes the open bangle and the new Pavé Sphere charm. At $129 it offers a savings of $26.
We love the look of the set finished off with two galaxy spacers and pavé lights charms!
Following last year’s collaboration, this year’s Limited Edition charm is also presented in conjunction with the New York Radio City Music Hall’s Rockettes. The charm is decorated with glistening white enamel and a small star and moon dangle at the top. It is presented in a larger replica of the ornament that you can hang on your tree!
We love the sparkle of this year’s holiday charms and jewelry. Stop by Versant to see all of the new pieces in person!
The Pandora 2018 Mother’s Day collection is here and it has added beautiful new pieces in virtually every category of Pandora! Focusing on soft pinks with hints of sparkle, the Mother’s Day collection is meant to help us celebrate the bonds of love. Check out our overview of all of the new pieces below!
Pandora Mother’s Day Collection Family Related Charms
As always, the Mother’s Day collection’s main focus is charms that celebrate the family and mom’s place within it. This year’s collection really goes beyond the traditional “mom” charms- we love the unique ways the new designers have found to honor mom!
Two of our new favorite charms are the Mother and Baby Bird dangle and the Perfect Home dangle. The birds are such a sweet representation of a mother and child relationship and have a beautiful ombre effect in the sparkling stones that surround the birds.
The Perfect Home is a locket-style charm that opens to say “Home is where MOM is.”
Another one of our new favorite charms is the Degrees of Love charm. With a soft enamel that blends from pink to lavender, one side says “❤ you more” and the other says “❤ you most”. We love that this charm celebrates our love for mom but still has a beautiful abstract look! The new enamel Love Mom charm is also a very pretty complement to the colors of the season and is a great look for those moms who prefer the silver and enamel charms to those with pavé stones.
We also love the new engraved “Mama Bear” charm to celebrate how fierce our mother’s love can be!
Rounding out the family themed charms are some beautiful new family tree charms, mom and harmonious hearts dangles, whimsical balloon animals, and a new murano glass charm with glitter pink in the interior.
The Bonds of Love themed charms feature a bow motif and, in addition to two new clips and a heart bow charm, include a new “statement charm” that is much larger than the traditional Pandora charms. We love the way the Brilliant Bow looks styled by itself on an open bangle!
In addition to the family themed charms, this year’s Mother’s Day Collection includes some fun new celebration charms! These range from milestone birthdays and achievements to bridal themed charms.
We think the new Celebration Cake charm, with it’s multicolored enamel icing and “Congrats” tag, is particularly adorable. The Celebration Bouquet and Best Bridesmaid charms are a great way to ask your friends to be a part of your bridal party or commemorate the day!
Other additions include a love themed safety chain, a Love Couple trio that includes a mustache, “Mr & Mrs.” heart charm, and pink lips, a 2018 graduation scroll, milestone age or anniversary charms, and an Achievement trophy.
The 2018 Mother’s Day Collection is a big step forwards for Pandora Rose lovers! There are a lot of new additions in the charms category, including both new designs and some of our favorite silver designs redesigned in Pandora Rose.
One of our favorite Pandora Rose charms is the Mother & Daughter set of 2. We love the combination of the Pandora Rose with the cream enamel. This is a great gift for daughters with Pandora to give because it includes a gift for yourself as well!
In the new Pandora Rose charms. the Hearts Filigree, Pattern of Love, Part of My Heart, and Harmonious Hearts Pacifier are all designs available only in the Rose. We particularly like the Patterns of Love, which has “Love Makes a Family” engraved on the back and a pretty lattice design on the front.
Pandora always includes some great value gift sets in their Mother’s Day Collection. This year’s sets are a real treat with a great variety of stylings!
The Perfect Mom bangle set is a wonderful gift for the silver loving mom. Add a new bangle to stack on with her existing bracelets or start off her collection with this set! It includes the Heart Bangle and the Perfect Mom charm. At $99, it represents a 14% savings over the normal retail price of $115 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The In My Heart gift set is a great introduction for the mom who wants to start collecting Pandora Rose. This set includes the Rose Heart clasp bracelet, two Rose Shining Path clips, and the new In My Heart two-tone charm. At $229, it represents a 10% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The Flourishing Hearts gift set is great for the mom who has been branching out into Pandora’s beautiful jewelry options beyond their charm offerings. The set includes the Flourishing Hearts stud earrings and Flourishing Hearts dangle charm on Pandora sterling 45cm chain. The charm can be worn on the chain or added to her Pandora bracelet! At $99, it represents a 17.5% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The Sparkling Mom gift set brings mom into the innovative world of Pandora’s memory lockets. Made with sapphire crystal, like luxury watches, to deter scratching of the clear surface, these lockets let you make beautiful vignettes with Pandora petite charms. The locket included in this set is reversible- you can wear it with the sparkling pavé side or the smooth silver side facing up. It includes three of the new letter charms spelling out “mom.” At $129, it represents a 24% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The last special addition this year is the Flourishing Hearts Limited Edition locket bangle. This bangle has the new locket-style clasp with the Flourishing Hearts motif and is engraved “Love makes a family” on the bangle. You can add charms to the bangle, but we think this bangle would also be beautiful standing by itself stacked with mom’s other bracelets! This is a Limited Edition offering and is $75.
Earrings, Rings, and More
With the Mother’s Day Collection, a small group of new jewelry items beyond the charms has been released as well.
One of our favorite new additions is the new Alphabet petites ($10) for the Memory Lockets. These new initials are reversible- one side is a smooth silver and the other has a pretty texture studded with hearts and small dots. Mix initials and birthstones to make a representation of your family!
We love the new Brilliant Bow earrings ($60)- more abstract (and mature) than the existing bow earrings, the long line of these is really pretty when you wear them as an ear climber. Other earring additions include new small hoop-style abstract heart earrings in both silver and Pandora Rose, Flourishing Heart studs, heart studs with a soft pink enamel.
In new necklaces, there are two disc-style engraved necklaces ($75). These are a longer length and would make great layering pieces. The new Pandora Signature collection has added some heart pendant designs in both silver and Pandora Rose as well.
One of our favorite additions in the Mother’s Day Collection is the Pandora Rose version of the wishbone rings released during the holidays! These look great stacked together or stacked with their silver counterparts. The Shimmering Wish with its sparkling CZs is particularly pretty! There are also two new Pandora Signature rings, one in silver and one in Rose, and a Brilliant Bow statement ring.
Pandora has continued to innovate in their bracelet designs this year. The new bolo-style sliding bracelets, which began last year with the Sparkling Strand, have made their way into the charm line as well. These bracelets adjust to fit any wrist size, making sizing much easier, and have interchangeable ends so that you can make two-tone designs! The Sparkling Strand bracelet has also been updated to include a new version with golden colored CZs.
Pandora has also added some new styles to the Essence Collection with it’s Mother’s Day release.
Our favorite addition in the Essence line is the beautiful new Pandora Rose necklace! The perfect length, it looks gorgeous styles with Pandora Rose essence charms. We also love the way the Dignity Pearl charm and faceted stone charms look to add some contrast to the Rose tones. One of our other favorite new pieces is the Love Makes a Family Pandora Rose Essence charm. It has a texture of beautiful scrolling vines to represent the branches of your family tree.
Other additions to the collection include new smooth Follow Your Heart spacers in silver rand Pandora Rose, Rose versions of some of the silver dangle charms, and the Bonds of Love charm which has a rose cage encases a blush pink crystal.
The last addition to this year’s Mother’s Day Collection are the new Pandora Disney charms. This season’s new additions focus on the iconic Mickey and Minnie and their adventures as a couple.
We particularly love the whimsical Mickey & Minnie Vintage Car charm- it has so many details!
Other new additions include two new safety chains, a Floating Minnie Dangle, a new Vintage Mickey clip with white enamel, Mickey’s glove, and a Vintage Minnie charm with pink enamel.
We hope you love the new Pandora Mother’s Day collection as much as we do! Stop by Versant in person to see all of the new pieces in person and let us help you style them into a selection that mom will love. As always, we are grateful to all of our customers who choose to #shopsmall and support our local small business.
Get ready to get romantic- the Pandora Valentine’s Day mini-collection is here! This year’s new additions include some classic styles mixed in with some colorful new additions with a whimsical style. The new collection includes pieces in every category, including a new bracelet concept. Check out our review below!
The centerpiece of Pandora’s Valentine’s Day collection is a selection of new charms in wide-ranging styles. The main focuses of this year’s campaign include a beautiful lock and key motif, the encouragement to “kiss more” with kiss themed pieces, and saturated color in bright fuchsia and salmon-pink.
The first group of charms are bursting with color. Many of the enamel charms have an ombre effect with graduating color from the edges to the sides. We particularly love the new Shape of Love charm, which features a faceted rose crystal. Included in this grouping is the new innovative spacer shaped like a heart, a new standard clip, and a new silicone grip clip.
The next grouping is a whimsical interpretation of the idea that we should “Kiss More.” We love the details in the emoji style Kiss charm- it has glitter cerise enamel on the lips and hearts along the edge. The lips charm is a limited selection at the moment.
The last grouping appeals to the more classic style, with touches of gold accenting bright silver. Light pink cubic zirconia give a touch of romantic color. The lock and key symbols and the “You & Me” sentiment are used frequently throughout the Valentine’s collection- we really like the new key dangle charm with gold lock. There is also a new heart lock-shaped clip that makes a great statement as a bangle centerpiece.
There are also a few new additions in rose. The Pandora Rose pieces in this collection are accented with a synthetic ruby. We like the mixture of the Pandora Rose and silver letters in the Rose interpretation of the I Love You charm- it is a great way to tie together a mixed metal charm collection.
There is one addition to the Essence collection- a beautiful fuchsia faceted crystal charm that mirrors the Shape of Love charm in the Moments collection. The meaning behind this charm is Love- the perfect sentiment for the season.
One of the most exciting parts of the new Pandora Valentine’s Day collection is the addition of a new bracelet concept. The Lock Your Promise bracelet features a new removable lock closure. We are looking forward to seeing what other similar clasps are going to become available for this concept!
The Explosion of Love bracelet carries forward the bolo-style bracelet design. We like this design because it allows the wearer to adjust the size to what is comfortable to them. This sweet design has small pink CZ hearts studding the smooth silver cuff.
One of our favorite new pieces in this collection is the key-shaped Memory Locket! Fitting 2-3 petite charms, this locket has beautiful details and a classic shape similar to the Tiffany keys collection.
There is also a lock necklace with a similar concept to the Lock Your Promise bracelet. We love the details on the Tree of Love necklace, where two colorful enamel hearts are nestled within the tree’s branches.
To accompany the new key locket, there are four new Petite charms. We love the lock and key together as a pair!
Pandora continues to be very innovative in their earring designs. We love seeing all of the new concepts that are being released and how we can customize them using the pieces we have at home! The new Two Hearts Hoops use a stud earring at the front of the ear that fits into the hoop in the back. Use some of your other Pandora studs to change the look of the earring!
We also adore the sweet Love Locks studs. With the short dangle of the heart lock, they offer a little more than the traditional small stud.
On to one of our favorite categories- rings! There are only a few additions to the rings in this year’s collection, but they are beautiful. The open-style Two Hearts rings are great for stacking without feeling too heavy.
The You & Me ring features a heart-shaped dome cut stone that has a beautiful depth. The side of the ring is engraved “You & Me”, adding another meaningful layer.
As always, Pandora has released some great value sets for the holiday. This year the sets come with some fun extras!
The Kiss Me bangle gift set includes a Pandora sterling bangle engraved with “Kiss Me” in dark red enamel, the Kiss emoji charm, and a pair of Sparkling Elegance earrings- all packaged in a light pink Limited Edition box. Even better- the set comes with a light pink Limited Edition makeup bag loaded with hearts. This set offers a savings of $56 from the price of the items purchased separately.
The Tree of Love bracelet set includes a Pandora sterling heart-clasp bracelet, the new Tree of Love dangle charm, and two Burst of Love clips, all packaged in the Limited Edition pink Valentine’s box. This set offers a savings of $46 from the price of the items purchased separately.
The last set is the Limited Edition Kiss More Lips charm. This charm comes packages in a Limited Edition pink box and includes a free red lip-shaped coin purse!
All of the gift sets come beautifully presented, making gift-giving easy this Valentine’s Day.
Make sure to stop by Versant to see all of the new Valentine’s Day pieces in person! We would love to help you navigate the many charms, old and new, to create a meaningful collection to give this holiday. As always, we are very grateful to all of our wonderful customers who choose to support our local, small business.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we have hand-selected some special treats to make mom’s day! Whether she is a sentimental soul or a trendsetter on-the-go, we have searched the world to find the perfect gift for every kind of mom. Check out all of our selections below in our Mother’s Day gift guide.
A few helpful hints before we start- plan to shop before the crowds arrive. The early bird really does get the worm- many of our promotions are the first week in May and the best selection is available when you get there first. If you are shopping for Pandora or Alex and Ani, take a peek or snap a pic of mom’s collection before you set out. That way you won’t have to fret over whether you have already given her that mom charm! And forget about buying wrapping paper and ribbon- gift wrapping is always complimentary at Versant! Got all that? Okay then- ready, set … shop!
If mom’s sense of style trends towards bright silvers, simple lines, and a touch of sparkle, she appreciates classic beauty. Giving a gift that will stand the test of time means going back to the classics. Clean styles in neutral colors are always a good idea. Mom will get the most wear out of a versatile piece she will be able to fancy up with a little black dress or dress down with a tee and jeans.
One of our favorite jewelry lines that creates classic styles with an updated aesthetic is Ti Sento Milano. Crafted from sterling silver, these pieces are rhodium plated to inhibit tarnishing and keep a bright, beautiful finish. Studded with sparkling, handset stones, they are great for transitioning from day into night.
Some of our favorite Ti Sento necklaces feature a round pendant with a pavé CZ or colored stone interior. We love the beautiful, soft colors of the stones. Ti Sento uses manmade crystals for their colored stones, ensuring that the color of each piece is consistent. This is a great feature for buying companion rings or earrings on future occasions!
If mom prefers bracelets and rings to necklaces, Ti Sento has some gorgeous hinged bangles. Made from heavy sterling silver, they really make a statement! We love the new spring design with entwined silver, pavé CZ, and mother of pearl strands.
Another great choice for the mom with the classic sense of style is Gabriel & Co’s fashion jewelry. Gabriel is primarily known for their high-end engagement rings, wedding bands, and fine jewelry. Their fashion line is constructed from sterling silver with precious and semi-precious stones. Using sterling allows for the same quality of design and construction at a lower price.
We love their quatrefoil necklace and earrings for mom. An iconic style with a slightly vintage feel, these pieces are feminine without being too delicate.
For the mom who likes the classics but wants something unique, Gabriel’s mother of pearl pieces are a great choice. These rings, earrings, and pendants use mother pearl with a piece of faceted quartz on top to give the piece more dimension. Although at first glance they look like a neutral grey, the iridescence of the dark mother of pearl picks up pretty pinks, greens, and other colors in the light.
Are you looking to really treat mom this Mother’s Day? (She deserves it!) Nothing is as classic or eternal as fine jewelry. While good fashion jewelry makes a beautiful statement, sterling silver does not have the strength for long-lasting wear the way that gold does. To give mom a classic piece that she will be able to wear for years and pass on to her children, gold is the way to go.
For a gift that mom can wear every day, stud earrings are an excellent choice. They have just the right amount of sparkle to be able to worn with any outfit. Studs are a great gift for new moms because they are a piece of jewelry that small hands can’t easily grab!
A dainty necklace is also a wonderful gift idea. These pieces add a touch of delicate sparkle and will never go out of style. We love the anchor necklace below. A symbol of stability and hope, the anchor holds fast and steady in both calm and stormy weather.
Let’s Get Personal
We love a gift that you can personalize to customize it to mom’s taste and represent your family and special memories that you share. Luckily, there are a lot of different types of jewelry that let you combine pieces to make mom a unique and thoughtful gift.
When talking about celebrating and creating unforgettable moments, Pandora is a great choice for someone looking for a wide range of styles. Not only do they have a vast selection of charms for their bracelets, but their jewelry is diverse, well-made, and affordable.
We love the new floating locket designs that have been introduced this season. The lockets themselves are a clean, classic design and use sapphire crystal found in high-end watches to provide a scratch-resistant surface. Sets of three petite charms can be used to personalize the lockets. We love the infinite love and the birthstone trios! The new heart lockets can be used with an insert plate in the back to add another dimension to the design.
For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to their existing collection, the Tree of Hearts gift set is a great way to do so. This set includes a Limited Edition heart-clasp bangle with the inscription “You are so loved” and the new Tree of Hearts charm. The gift set is presented in a special light pink Pandora box. Personalize the set by adding spacers in the colors of family members’ birthstones or charms with their initials!
Pandora’s new stackable birthstone rings are another great option for giving mom a personalized gift. Make a stack with the birthstone of each family member to create a modern version of a mother’s ring.
Another great option for curating a personalized set for mom is Waxing Poetic jewelry. This line of charms, necklaces, and bracelets is inspired by vintage wax seals. Create a mother’s day collection using talismans representing family, meaningful words and phrases, and insignia with initials.
An added bonus to shopping the Waxing Poetic collection is the free charm promotion that will be going on from May 1-May 14. During this time, when you spend $100 in Waxing Poetic jewelry, you will get a Mom Birdsong charm for free. We love this charm paired with the Bundled with Love nest. Add symbols representing each family member to really personalize mom’s charms!
For the mom with a more casual style, Alex and Ani is a fun way to create a stack of bracelets to represent her family and what makes her stand out. This Mother’s Day, Alex and Ani has released several limited edition sets. These bangle and beaded styles only available for a limited time as part of each set. The I Love You Mom set of five and Mom set of three are great starter sets for a mom just beginning her Alex and Ani collection.
We particularly love the Infinite Connection set. With one bangle for mom and one bangle for daughter, it reminds us of the classic “give one, keep one” friendship sets. Add a beaded bangle in a birthstone color to personalize mom’s portion of the set!
Another way to create a personalized bracelet collection is with the updated birthstone bangles. These bangles are now available in the matte gold and silver finish and adorned with a teardrop shaped Swarovski crystal. Mix birthstones bangles, colored beaded bracelets, and initials for mom and her crew to create a varied stack.
Is mom the superhero of your family? Add one of the new Wonder Woman bangles or cuffs to her Mother’s Day stack! These new additions to the Alex and Ani world feature the iconic Wonder Woman logo and symbolize strength and the fight for love and justice.
The Trendsetter Mom
Is mom a style trendsetter who loves to be on the cutting edge of what is new and fashionable? Look for pieces that use different metals in innovative ways and go out of their way to make a statement. Bolder earrings in versatile designs, necklaces that are longer or shorter (think chokers!), and stacks of fun bangles are a great way to gift the trendsetter mom.
We love Julie Vos jewelry for a striking design in warm gold with pops of bold color. Her long layering necklaces and stackable bracelets have been very popular on the fashion blogs, and for good reason. With styles inspired by nature, architecture, and byzantine motifs, these pieces bridge the gap between classic and trendy. Julie Vos’ jewelry is constructed from 24K gold over brass, giving it a wonderful warm tone.
For the beach-loving mom that loves the summer sun, choose pieces where watery blues or bright turquoise are set against gold.
Many of Julie Vos’ long necklaces, like the bee below, include a special jump ring so that they can be doubled and worn at a shorter length.
Another great brand for the trendsetter mom is Freida Rothman. Based in New York, they combine a metropolitan style with a fun use of mixed metals and stone settings. For a brighter style, their yellow gold plated pieces set with amazonite are gorgeous. For a versatile piece, we love their pavé studs with amazonite ear jackets. Wear them as plaint studs without the jackets, or dress it up with a dangling pop of color!
For an edgier style, check out Freida Rothman’s mixed metal pieces. Using yellow gold plating and oxidized sterling silver gives a great contrast to these fashionable pieces. Pair them with some labradorite jewelry to complement the color combination.
Our store exclusive line, WinterLemon, also has some beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that are well-suited for the fashionable mom. Handmade locally, they use a mix of cutting edge shapes and metals with semi-precious gemstones. As with Freida Rothman’s jewelry, the mix of yellow gold and oxidized silver takes a classic design and gives it a more contemporary edge.
For those that would like a statement piece without a heavy look, we love WinterLemon’s necklaces crafted from a delicate chain, freshwater pearls, and faceted gemstones.
Another way to make a statement without being too bulky is to use an unconventional necklace length or a adding bright colored stones set without a large amount of metal. We love this necklace with a slice of bright green chalcedony wrapped in a fine outline of gold vermeil.
Sweet and Sentimental
Is mom known for being softhearted and turns to mush over a gift with a story behind it? For the sentimental mom, we love pieces that have a romantic or nostalgic undertone.
Both beautiful and meaningful, Thortiuda pendants are a terrific gift for the sentimental mom. Thortiuda, meaning “angel” in Thai, are also known as angel whisperers. Each pendant cage encloses a colored chime. The delicate chime is meant to call our guardian angels to our side, so that they can protect us from all dangers.
Thortiuda is also the perfect gift for a mom-to-be celebrating her first mother’s day. The idea of the angel whisperer chime has been present across many cultures. It was worn during pregnancy to protect expectant mothers and their babies. After birth, it could be kept by the mother, or be given to the newborn baby to protect it in its sleep, to soothe it with the reassuring and familiar gentle chime, and to protect it by calling the invisible presence of its guardian angel.
Each chime insert color has an individual meaning and sound. On the fashion side, the interchangeable orbs allow the wearer to change the look of the necklace for different seasons and outfits.
Another wonderful way to surprise mom with a sentimental gift this Mother’s Day is through the Pandora Essence collection. Similar to the traditional Pandora charm bracelet, these pieces are personalized by choosing your bracelet and charms separately. However, unlike the Moments bracelet, the Essence charms celebrate different values and attributes of the people we love. Each charm is designed to reflect a chosen trait, such as loyalty or dedication, and this trait is engraved onto the side of the charm.
Pandora Essence is wonderful for moms just starting a charm bracelet because the charms themselves have silicon in the interior of the charm that allows the charm to stay in place on the bracelet. This lets mom style the bracelet by grouping charms together or separating them. Because the charms stay in place, the bracelet never looks empty or unfinished.
For moms with a distinct romantic side, we love jewelry accented with rose gold. The warm pink tones of rose gold make it a stand-out metal for the dreamy mom. Used widely in the Victorian era, it also has a touch of vintage fun that appeals to the nostalgic mom.
Pandora has recently expanded their collection to Pandora Rose. These pieces are made from a proprietary blend of copper and silver at the core with a layer of 14K rose gold plating on top. We love the pieces with some sparkle- the stones stand out so brightly against the rose! They have designed some of our favorite rings in Pandora Rose as well. Add a rose accent to a sterling stack, or create an all rose collection!
To gift mom a full set in Pandora Rose, we love the Timeless Elegance design. This classic style is given a twist with the warm rose gold hue and is available as stud earrings, ring, and pendant.
Many of our WinterLemon pieces are also available with rose gold plated accents. We love the mix of rose gold with the soft grey of labradorite- the iridescence in the labradorite gemstone picks up the warm pinks of the rose. We love the sweet bee necklace below as a dainty piece to honor the queen bee of the family!
For a more classic look in rose gold, Elle Jewelry’s rose gold plated sterling pieces feature iconic shapes updated in the rose gold metal. The fleur earrings and necklace are a beautiful romantic style. For a more modern feel, we love the sparkling bar necklace that mixes rose gold with shiny silver.
Another way to treat the sentimental mom this Mother’s Day is to feather her nest with some accents that reflect the love of her family. Upstairs in Haven, our locally-made burlap canvases feature a family tree and nostalgic phrases shared between mother and child.
We also love our Love You to the Moon and Back and This is my Happy Place pillows as a way to brighten up mom’s home with expressions of love.
Accessorize that Gift Card!
Everyone loves gift cards- they are versatile and let mom pick something you know she will like. But as fun as using a gift card is, opening a gift card on Mother’s Day is not very exciting. Luckily, there are some great creative ways to jazz up that gift with some small accessories that give a hint of the gift card being received!
Is mom a coffee lover? These new mugs from Chase and Wonder are a great way to accessorize a gift certificate to Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or your local coffee shop. When the gift card is spent, she will still think of you every time she has a cup.
For the mom that loves to travel, these travel bags and accessories made from upcycled military tarps are a great way to surprise mom with a fun trip. The adorable makeup are also a great way to present a gift card to Sephora or Ulta!
If mom loves the spa or getting a massage, add to her relaxation with these luxurious bath and body products from Blithe and Bonny. Hand-crafted in the USA, they smell amazing and they are beautifully presented. In store we have the Cedar & Sage, Grapefruit, and Herbes de Provence Scents available.
Does mom like to relax at the end of the day with a nice bottle of wine or craft beer? Get her a beer or wine caddy and fill it with her favorite bottle!
Do you want to give mom the gift of Pandora but are letting her choose her own charms? Bundle your Versant gift card with a Pandora Care Kit. The Care Kit is only $15 and contains 2 polishing cloths, 2 pouches, a soft brush for cleaning, and a sterling clip opener/keychain.
Another fun and affordable way to present any gift card is in a canvas pouch. Pouches are great for carrying essentials or using as a cute clutch. Hide your gift card inside to give mom a special surprise!
