What To Look For In A Necklace For Mother’s Day

April 15th, 2022

Fashionable necklaces have been used as gifts for centuries. This Mother’s Day, give the mother in your life one of these fine pieces to enliven and enrich their day. Whether they are your mom or your nephew’s mom, they deserve a present as fine as jewelry. Our experts at Huntington Fine Jewelers have put together a guide to choosing a fitting necklace for your loved one this holiday.

A Sentimental Piece

Any old necklace off of the shelf from a jewelry store will do, but what makes an impact is a gift that shows you put thought into making sure it is meaningful to her. Choose a piece featuring her birthstone or the birthstones of her children. A letter pendant engraved with her first or last initial is also an excellent choice.

A particular exquisite option is a motif that is meaningful to both of you. If her family keeps bees, she may love this stunning bee pendant necklace from Frederic Sage. When you take the time to find something that reflects her interests, it shows just how much you care about them.

A Necklace In Her Favorite Metal

It’s important when choosing a necklace for someone else that you consider the type of metal that suits their style. If most of their jewelry is silver, for example, it will be harder for her to fit a gold necklace into her daily attire. Some people prefer specific tones of metal to match their skin tones or simply prefer warm over cool tones and vice versa. Do a bit of research into the type of metal they frequently wear.

If you are not sure which type of metal they prefer, or if they truly do not have a preference, a mixed metal piece is a great option. They will be able to wear the necklace with a variety of different pieces they already own. This mixed metal necklace from Simon G. features white, yellow, and rose gold which will likely cover all of the bases.

Gemstones In Her Favorite Color

An easy way to customize your gift to suit her aesthetic is to pick a piece featuring her favorite color. If there is a color she wears often or uses to decorate her house, opt for a gemstone in a similar shade.

For fans of brilliant purple hues, amethyst is a perfect choice. This delicate amethyst pendant necklace from Tacori is gorgeous but understated and will easily fit into her wardrobe.

A Piece That Fits Her Style

Perhaps the most important thing to consider when choosing any piece of jewelry for a loved one is their style. Is the mom in your life daring and edgy with her aesthetic or is she most feminine and frilly? Does she prefer soft neutrals or bold colors?

If the mom you are shopping for is a fan of all things minimalist, choose a pared-back piece like this diamond bar necklace from Hearts On Fire. If she identifies as more of a maximalist, a mixed-texture gold chain necklace will pair well with the bold pieces in her wardrobe.
