Every time she puts on that necklace you gave her, glances at that ring on her finger, or feels those earrings sway on her ears ? she'll think of you. Jewelry is the perfect Mother's Day gift because not only is it special when she opens the box, but jewelry also continues to give warm thoughts and feelings forever more. 

This Mother's Day, whether you're shopping for a gift for mom, or a gift for your wife or grandmother, buy from the heart and select a special piece of jewelry. Choose an item that will last a lifetime, while reflecting that you took the time to think about what she would really enjoy.

Some creative ideas for Mother's Day include stylized sterling silver or gold heart pendants, or the wonderful circle motif that symbolizes infinity and can be found today in so many great varieties ? often with pavé diamonds or gemstones. A pendant necklace is a great gift because it is versatile and can be worn on a silk cord, or a precious metal necklace.  

Similarly, long open-work earrings of gold circles or geometric designs are the perfect gift to say thank you for all she does. Earrings are a grand accessory that let a woman make her own statement every day. By giving one of today's most coveted styles ? something that is classic and timeless ? you're giving something she can always use and will always remind her that you care.  

Other great styles include floral motifs and diamond-adorned pendants and earrings that shimmer with every move.  

Bracelets and rings also make wonderful Mother's Day gifts, though you'll want to be aware of her size and style first. Take note of what she likes. Is she wearing cuff bracelets or slinky chain-types that fit smoothly against the wrist? If it's a ring you have in mind, does she like gemstones that are large, or does she like a special motif such as a flower, a pearl, a geometric pattern? By noticing these things, she'll really appreciate that you went out of your way for her this Mother's Day.

The sentiment behind that perfect piece of jewelry will stir in her heart forever.
