Mothers Birthstone Jewelry

Mothers’ Day in the United States is the second Sunday in May. It’s a day to celebrate mothers, motherhood, and the maternal bond between a woman and her child. The first Mothers’ Day was celebrated in 1908. 

So, what type of Mothers’ birthstone jewelry is best and what should you consider when making your choice? Traditionally, jewelry for Mothers’ Day contains the birthstones of each child and/or grandchild.

A mothers birthstone pendant may have a heart or circle that contains birthstones for each of her children or grandchildren. Be sure that you can add extra stones to mothers birthstone pendants easily. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a new one when you have more children.

Mothers birthstone rings

A mothers birthstone ring may be an ideal choice for a woman who doesn’t typically wear necklaces or bracelets. I’m allergic to nickel and often necklaces or bracelets cause a rash. My hands are not as sensitive so I can wear rings without a problem.

If you have a sensitivity to jewelry you may want to learn more about skin irritation caused by jewelry. Personalized birthstone rings and stackable mothers rings can contain the names of each child as well as a birthstone.

For a very large family, you may want to look into customized mothers rings that a jewelry store can help you with. They can design mothers rings with more space for extra children. Or there are lots of mothers rings designs that can hold 3 or 4 stones.

If your mother wears bracelets, you may want to consider a mothers birthstone bracelet as a gift. Birthstone family jewelry can be worn by anyone.

There are a number of beautiful charm bracelets that can contain birthstones and charms for her favorite activities. Pandora style or Alex and Ani style bracelets are very popular and can be added to in the future.

Mothers necklace with children’s names

And, a mothers necklace can contain birthstones and charms with each child’s name on them. I have seen these charms in the shape of petals, hearts, and tiny feet.

An added plus is that you can always add another charm and birthstone with the birth of another child. Birthstone jewelry for children typically contains a stone for each child.

Remember, you may also want to consider a birthstone necklace for grandma.

So, if you’re not sure what birthstone would be appropriate, here is a birthstone list to refer to. This is a list of traditional birthstones used for birthstone jewelry for moms.

Tips for storing jewelry

So, once you’ve chosen mothers birthstone jewelry for your mom, it’s important to take care of it so it lasts longer. And, jewelry should be protected while it’s not being worn so a small jewelry box would be a wonderful idea to go along with the jewelry you choose.

It should be removed when it might be exposed to household cleaners during dishwashing or cleaning.
