Nothing says “Mother’s Day” like a brand new addition to the jewelry collection! Okay, that may have sounded a tad bit materialistic, huh? LOL! Don’t get me wrong – hugs and homemade cards are (without a doubt) the best gifts a Mom could ask for. But who doesn’t love a little something sparkly on a special occasion!?
A striking pair of earrings from the kids pleads, “Mommy, we love you! And we’re sorry about the markers on the hallway walls… again!”
A gorgeous gold bracelet from a significant other screams, “You’re still as lovely as the day we met – how did I ever get so lucky?”
A stunning statement ring, as a gift to myself, is my way of saying, “Hey you. You’re kind of awesome and don’t you forget that!”
No matter who it comes from, few moments are as exciting as the moment before you open that tiny box – just big enough to hold something shiny and new.
So today, I’m sharing a few fine jewelry items from Alaska Jewelry that are definitely on my “Mommy’s Day Wish List” this year.
The Ultimate Mother’s Day Earrings
The first piece of jewelry that caught my eye is this pair of diamond earrings, so appropriately named Diamond Drop Leaf Earrings for Mother’s Day. Well, isn’t that just perfect for the upcoming occasion!?
These dangly earrings feature 30 points of round brilliant diamonds set in 18k gold. In the center, an 18k yellow gold leaf swings freely inside the glittering halo of diamonds. And who doesn’t want to walk around with glittering halos dangling from her ears? So elegant. A perfect addition to dress up any outfit for a night on the town.
Not Your Average Bangle
When I think “bangle” two things used to cross my mind – the 80’s rock band and dozens of stackable bracelets. Well, the bangle has officially been redefined in my mind – because neither of those descriptions applies when referring to Alaska Jewelry’s Contemporary Gold Quartz Bangle Bracelet. Two panels of gorgeous inlaid natural gold-in-quartz sit snuggly in solid 14k gold. Talk about arm candy! The rare gold-in-quartz formations are found in their natural state and then hand cut and polished, making each bracelet one-of-a-kind. A unique piece that just happens to go perfectly with the next item on my list…
Do you remember in that Sex and The City episode when Carrie peers into the store window at those “must-have” pink, strappy sandals and says, “Hello, Lover!”? Well, that was my reaction when I stumbled upon this 14k Gold Free-Form Gold-in- Quartz Ring. The band is 14k yellow gold with a free-form gold-in-quartz centerpiece. I just love the way the website describes the detail: “Pure veins of gold were forced into quartz by hydro-thermal pressure while they were both in a molten state.” Those words, “pure veins of gold” make this sound like a superhero ring for a superhero mom!
Oh, I just love a good wish list! Don’t you? Like we said before, Mother’s Day isn’t about “stuff” or “things”. It’s about spending time with family and loved ones! But, who said you couldn’t spend quality time while wearing a new piece of jewelry (or two!). Happy Mother’s Day to all of you amazing moms, grandmas, and mother figures out there!
My husband is awesome and usually gets me jewelry for Mother’s Day. I also normally get a bracelet for my mom along with flowers.
That ring is gorgeous! My Mom is particularly fond of earrings, I’ll have to see what all they have available 🙂
I am loving the bangle. I can just think of so many things to wear it with whether dressed up or down.
A bit of materialism never hurt nobody lol :p I love jewels and so does my family. A great way to thank them for being there.
Haha, I love it! Jewelry is definitely a great mother’s day gift (and will never end up in the trash)!
Those are all quite lovely. My husband bought me art this year, I cannot wait to see what he picked out!
I love LOVE those leaf earrings. I am not much of a Jewelry girl, I pretty much just wear my wedding ring and the promise ring my dad gave my mom when they were young.
I’ve never heard of this company before but I love the choices that you decided to share. I’m going to check them out and maybe give a few hints myself.

Im kind of loving that bangle bracelet….. not a mom to a human yet….., (that sounds odd, but I do consider my 4 dachshunds my kids for the time being!) I think Ill tell my husband I need a mom’s day present for being a fur baby mom!
The bangle is my favorite. Jewelry is always welcomed on Mother’s Day. 🙂
Omg can I please have one of everything?!?! Nothing better than getting jewelry on any day! Always a safe route to take when gift shopping 😉
I could always go for a little something sparkly, especially on Mother’s Day. I would pick the bagel. It’s absolutely dazzling!
That ring is so amazing. I love jewelry that looks different than your average piece.
Those earrings are STUNNING!
The ring is everything to me! OMG! I am loving this list and leaving it for my husband haha
Lovely and stunning designs, with great colors! These would be a great gift for any mother!
I love the ring…I am just drawn to rings and wear them more often than any other piece of jewelery
