1. Take into consideration your mum’s lifestyle
When picking out jewellery for your mum, one of the most important steps would
be to think about her type of lifestyle. If she is really sporty or outdoorsy, I would
suggest leaning towards an easy to wear, comfortable piece, for example, some
stud earrings or a custom made bangle. On the other hand, if she attends lots of
special formal events and loves getting dressed up, you may want to look into
some more statement pieces such as a pendant, necklace or dress rings.
2. Have a look at her current jewellery collection
Another really great tip for choosing the right piece of jewellery for your mum this
Mother’s Day is to have a look at what types of jewellery she already has in her
collection. This will help you narrow down firstly, what types of jewellery she is
attracted to, and also, what pieces she may be missing. You may notice that your
mum has lots of stud earrings, so you might like to choose a beautiful pair of drop
earrings to wear for more special occasions.
3. What type of metal does she tend to wear?
All women are attracted to different metals when choosing jewellery and this is
usually because it’s the colour they think compliments them best. Therefore, it
may be a good idea to stick to the metal that is most prominent in her collection,
or the pieces she wears most often, whether it be yellow gold, silver or even rose
gold. If you branch out and choose a metal she has never worn before, you run the
risk of her feeling uncomfortable wearing the colour, and not wearing it as often or
as proudly as she would like.
4. What types of designs is she most attracted to?
When looking at your mother’s current jewellery collection, try to take note of the
styles she tends to wear. Some women are really into more fashion forward,
modern styles of jewellery, whereas some women chose to follow the more
classical trends that will never go out of style. It is also a good idea to have a look at
the weight of her jewellery. Some women are really into chucky, bold pieces,
whereas on the other hand many women feel more comfortable wearing small,
delicate and dainty pieces.
5. Take into consideration the size of her jewellery
Similar to the way all women fit into a different size of clothes, every woman
requires different sizes of jewellery. If you’re looking to buy your mum a ring, have a
look at the size of her fingers or maybe borrow one of her rings to make sure you
can get her the right size. You can also choose different necklace or bracelet
lengths depending on the width of your mum’s neck or wrists.
