I don’t think I’ve ever done a Mother’s Day jewelry post before, but when I saw the Elisa Solomon Mama collection, I just knew I had to share it with you.
There’s something so touching and genuine about these pieces. Perhaps it’s the context: the fabulous Elisa, this collection’s designer, is expecting her own first child.
The Elisa Solomon Mama collection doesn’t have any of the gimmicks you often seen in jewelry marketed toward mothers – just the word “mama” in slightly childlike but still elegant balloon-style letters, embellished with two twinkling diamonds each.
Working mamas – or mamas who just like to look amazing – could wear these chic little pieces anywhere, with anything, from cocktail dresses to yoga pants.
I don’t have any kids myself, but I’ve watched some of my friends become mothers and it’s a profound change, even when you’re just watching from the outside. You go from not being anyone’s mother to being a mother all day, every day, for the rest of your life.
Isn’t that a transformation that deserves to be marked by a piece of jewelry? I think it is.
Ideally I would have shown you the Elisa Solomon Mama collection a week or two ago for those of you shopping for Mother’s Day presents…but I was too slow!
It’s okay: you can buy your mom a present anytime, just because. I also think that any of these would be the world’s sweetest baby shower gift.
And on that note: I’m off to meet my own family for a stroll around a garden followed by a BBQ! The garden stroll is our usual tradition, the BBQ is a recent addition due to the fact that my sister’s boyfriend makes the best burgers ever.
I hope that you all have a wonderful day, whether you’re celebrating Mother’s day for yourself, for your mom, for someone who feels like your mom, or whether it’s just another day to you.
