If you haven’t started thinking about Mother’s Day gifting, now’s the time. And while flowers are always a safe bet when it comes to the holiday, floral jewels are even better.
Not only are they beautiful and thoughtful, but they’re made to last and can even become family heirlooms, passed down to generations of mothers to come. From more realistic interpretations, like a diamond bloom necklace, to playful ones, like a vintage pearl-doused brooch, there’s something for every type of mom—whether it’s from a child, spouse, or other. See below for the best floral jewelry for Mother’s Day.
A fourth-generation diamond dealer, the Belgian jeweler behind AS29 knows a thing or two about creating diamond pieces. This one in particular has a modern feel; as it’s called Bloom, it’s meant to act as a constant reminder that the process of blooming is never-ending, making the piece an emblem of growth and success.
The marquetry used to create intricate floral patterns in Silvia Furmanovich’s pink flower earrings gives the jewels a handmade, painterly effect. For a touch of glitz, they’re hung from vibrant gemstones.
Showcasing pearls (approximately 90 of them) as its centerpiece, Kurt Wayne’s vintage pin channels the bold attitude from the ’80s, the decade in which it was created. It’s the perfect accent piece for any look.
You can’t go wrong with a tennis bracelet for moms. Irene Neuwirth’s, however, is not your average tennis bracelet. A one-of-a-kind piece, it features a hand-carved flower that was designed and handmade in Los Angeles.
