There are lots of reasons to make Mother’s Day special this year. Treating your mum with an IRL gift after a long year of Zooming. Showing your appreciation to the mother of your children – or yourself – for taking on the extra unpaid roles of school teacher and, seemingly, full-time snack chef.
While chocolates or flowers might be the traditional go-to gifts, jewellery will outlast and outshine both. As we all know, this has been an extraordinary year for mothers; be that intensified juggling as home, work and school lives have merged, or for those with grown-up children, playing an endurance game as face-to-face quality time has been replaced by snatched moments on video calls.
Some partners or children will recognise this. However, this Mother’s Day could also be a moment for mums to treat themselves to a piece of fine jewellery to mark the year that has passed – as a supplement to those cherished, yet ultimately less wearable, handmade cards and sloppily but lovingly crafted breakfasts in bed.
And for those of us not fortunate enough to have our mothers with us on March 14th, but lucky enough to have beautiful memories, a commemorative piece of jewellery can be a tactile reminder of her legacy to keep close every day.
