A symbolic day for symbolic gestures
This Mother's Day, we celebrate mothers and motherhood in all their beautiful incarnations; new, experienced, young, old, biological, chosen, expectant and every one else who feels a maternal bond. A symbolic gesture on this day is a tradition meant to show one's appreciation for mothers and motherhood, and what better way than to gift someone a memory that will last
forever? Our edits of beautiful pieces of jewellery are from designers, who put thought and consideration into their creations, many working carefully to uphold ethical practices to not harm Mother Earth. From future classics to eye-catching one-of-a-kinds, there's something for every mother.

We've asked some of our designers to highlight their favourites for Mother's Day
Bleue Burnham's pick for Mother's Day
"For mothers day i think its important to pick a piece of jewellery that has meaning and is something your mother will connect to."
"If your mother is connected to roses I would suggest a Rose Garden Signet. These rings are designed around the beauty of a rose garden and what it means to humans physically, mentally and culturally."
"For me they are a place where beauty meets pleasure meets wellbeing. It's a beautiful mix of three things that are deeply important to happiness."
Anna Jewsbury from Completedworks
"I like the symbiotic relationship between the two sides in these earrings, you get a simultaneous sense of their interrelatedness as well as distinction. They were actually inspired by the folds in a child’s paper fortune teller, which again feels very relevant. And if you can’t get pearls for Mother’s Day then when can you?"
"In many ways I feel these are the perfect gift piece as they are so wearable and intricate, but I also really like the idea of the two strands wrapping around each other in this energetic relationship as a Mother’s Day gift."
"We keep returning to this design as a brand and I think the image of a scrunchie and the ordinary experience of tying up hair feels quite pertinent to mother’s day and perhaps more practical ideas of motherhood."
"A classic and timeless gift. The diamond has been barrel set in white gold to emphasise and show off the stone, and matching it with a delicate yellow gold chain keeps the piece modern."
"My favourite piece! They work for both occasion and everyday wear, and aren’t too heavy to wear all the time as they are slightly hollowed out. The gently curved shape makes them feel unique and the gypsy setting of the diamonds allows them to glimmer without being too bling."
"The twisting design with the floating pear diamond feels unique and interesting, but it’s still simple enough to be a true classic. The piece was originally carved from wax and is a take on the love knot, so is very symbolic!"
Vintage dreams for Mother's Day by
Jennifer Gibson Jewellery
"Say it with flowers that will never fade…A rare and utterly captivating Chanel necklace hailing from the 1999 Spring Summer collection. Most likely created by the legendary Parisian jeweller Maison Goossens for Chanel. The design incorporates freeform style Camellia flowers; Coco's favourite flower, finished with a trio of her trademark faux pearls. The attention to detail in the craftmanship of this piece is second to none. Perfect heritage style from the House of Chanel."
"Give the gift of links for everlasting love with this delightful vintage Givenchy roller link bracelet. Finished with the double G logo clasp. From the elegantly stylish House of Givenchy."
"A stunningly glamorous crystal encrusted love knot style earring from the House of Dior. Pave set crystals adorn this contemporary style motif for maximum glamour. These timeless beauties will never fail to shine."
