Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show appreciation for your maternal loved ones. Moms, grandmas, moms-to-be and those who have “been like moms” deserve the very best. Flowers are lovely, candy is sweet – but diamonds last forever! Because all moms are different, be sure to select diamond jewelry that fits her lifestyle, tastes and needs. Is she classic or trendy? Elegant or on-the-go?
“You don’t have to worry if she’s going to like your gift when you give your mom diamond jewelry. It’s a present any woman would love, but it’s important to take the time to think about the type of jewelry that complements her current pieces or completes her set,” says Bob Hoskins from Whiteflash.com, a luxury online diamond and jewelry boutique. Whiteflash.com is recognized for its exclusive brand of Hearts & Arrows diamonds, called Whiteflash A Cut Above; Hearts & Arrows refer to the pattern seen through the top and bottom of the gem, which signifies the highest level of quality.
“Tennis bracelets say ‘timeless’ and are an excellent choice for a woman who prefers a classic look,” says Hoskins. For a modern take on the tennis bracelet, check out Whiteflash.com’s Full Bezel Scattered Tennis Bracelet. “We updated the standard tennis bracelet by inlaying the diamonds and ‘scattering’ them rather than placing them in a straight line,” he adds. The bracelet can be set with 2 to 3.3 carats and is available in platinum and white gold.
Diamond Stud Earrings
Another traditional selection that is sure to match any outfit is a pair of diamond stud earrings. A shimmering set of studs will make mom glow, especially when it’s part of the Expert Selection Ready Set to GO diamond stud earring collection from Whiteflash.com. Available in white or yellow gold and platinum in a range of carats from .25 to 1.50 and diamonds from princess to round cut, these earrings are expertly selected by Whiteflash.com jewelers.
Right Hand Rings
Her left hand might be reserved for dad, but the right hand is where she can show off a sparkly ring from her favorite son or daughter. “Right hand rings are gaining popularity among those who are setting trends,” says Hoskins. To take “trendy” a step further, get mom a Right Triangles right hand ring from Whiteflash.com. With its smattering of inlayed round diamonds set at an angle, this ring will make your fashion-forward mom the envy of all her friends. It’s available with .50 total carats in platinum and white gold.
