MOTHER OF THE BRIDE JEWELRY DOS & DON’TS
Like mother, like daughter… both are wearing pearls by Patty Tobin Fine Fashion Jewelry.
Do: Coordinate with the wedding style and color scheme… Don’t: Match the bridesmaids.
Your mother holds a unique place in your heart and your wedding. Don’t make the mistake of grouping her into the look you’ve delegated for your bridesmaids. Instead, consider letting Mom look and feel distinguished in a role that is all her own. A great way for her to achieve a radiant look that also complements the tone of the wedding is to reflect the color scheme with a gemstone in Mom’s jewelry.
The Monique Lhuillier Fine Jewelry collection features blue sapphires, mirroring a navy color scheme exquisitely. The only thing that could make this more perfect is if the bride walks down the aisle in a Monique Lhuillier gown, really tying the elements of design together.

Do: Incorporate a special memory into Mom’s jewelry… Don’t: Overlook that the little things matter too.
A small but significant detail can say a thousand words. Sharing a lifetime of memories and experiences, there has never been a more perfect time to pay homage to the journey that led you here.
Maps by A.Jaffe make for an incredibly thoughtful gift that is sure to ignite special memories. Honor the place you and Mom hold dear with a modern heirloom that tells the story of a beloved place in the world, and in your hearts. Each custom-made piece is engraved with the special location of your choice, pinpointed by a diamond to mark the spot.

Do: Go Classic, but modern… Don’t: Wear a bulky necklace that was on-trend circa 1987.
Mom needs something new to commemorate this occasion. After all, she will cherish this day for years to come, and neither of you should look back on family portraits with regret. It is amazing what confidence a new piece of jewelry can inspire. Encourage Mom to update her look while staying true to her classic roots in this gorgeous pearl necklace by Patty Tobin.

Do: Honor the important women in your life that have shaped the person you are today by inviting them to participate in the selection experience… Don’t: Forget to share a special bonding experience just with Mom.
Moms, aunts, sisters- two things are certain: they’ve been there for you through it all, and they love a touch of frosting. By inviting them along- whether your stepmom or mother-in-law to be- this is a great way to honor the relationship, and show that person how much they mean to you. London Jewelers offers an endless variety to suit every taste and occasion, and is the perfect destination to bring your loved ones. Just make sure that you get some one-on-one time with Mom too. You’re about to marry the man of your dreams, but you’ll always be her little girl.

Do: Take this opportunity to go custom… Don’t: Just assume Mom has something lying around.
Reserve the something old and borrowed for your bridal look- not theirs! Your mother is like a snowflake- there’s simply nothing and no one on the planet like her. It might seem like no matter how much of a selection there is, no one piece truly captures her magic. Creating a custom piece of jewelry is a wonderful way to give Mom something that no one else can have.
Whether you work your artistic side to create a piece by your own invention, or collaborate with a jewelry designer, you can be sure that Mom wears something that was literally made for her. Jewelry designers atGreenwich Jewelers work hand-in-hand with clients to make one-of-a-kind creations. Beginning with pencil and paper to sketch ideas, and working closely together as the vision comes to life, there is nothing that isn’t possible to properly capture Mom’s beauty.
Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10th.
