Moms are so special, and in my world, they’re one of my favorite people to shop for, but it’s not always simple. Jewelry gifts for moms are a popular choice at Christmas, because there are so many beautiful and unique gift ideas. If you’re shopping for a younger mom, jewelry that features her children’s birthstones is extra special. For a middle aged mom (like me), we might be looking for more fashionable pieces, so we’re counting on the wisdom of our fashionista daughters to choose them. If you’re shopping for that “woman of a certain age”, and we won’t define that for you, classics like gorgeous rhinestone brooches and earrings might be exactly right for her. Naturally, if you’re a husband shopping for your wife who’s a mom, recognizing her for her gifts as a mother might mean you finally splurge on that beautiful anniversary ring you’ve been planning (but procrastinating) on.
I’m a believer that there really aren’t any rules when it comes to Christmas gifts for mom. Most importantly, you want her to know that you put a lot of thought into your selection, and that it’s one that makes her think of you, whenever she happens to wear it. If you pick the perfect piece of jewelry, it will make her feel loved and beautiful, even on her most difficult days. Christmas jewelry is a lovely gift idea as well, but why not splurge on some special jewelry gifts she can enjoy year round? Whether it’s personalized with her name, or both your initials, or a special piece from a daughter or son to their mother, there is so much jewelry online to choose from. And if you’re that husband, well…this Christmas is the time to deliver the goods, and remind your wife who has birthed or shared raising children with you, that she’s your true love, forever and eternity. You’ll find all those options, and of course lots more ideas, in this Top 10 Best Jewelry Gifts for Mom for Christmas 2017.

No one feels more cherished than a child, because they know they can count on their mom through thick and thin. This lovely sterling silver mother’s necklace proclaims the universal truth most of us are lucky enough to know – a mother’s love is forever. The beautiful abstract mother and child sit in an openwork teardrop, topped by a heart. The sweet sentiment is engraved on the bottom of the teardrop, and it’s one of the most heartfelt gifts for moms. It comes suspended from a pretty 18 inch sterling silver box chain that’s durable and shiny, so you can bet she’ll wear it a lot.

6. Sterling Silver Bezel Set Genuine Birthstone Stud Earrings
6. Sterling Silver Bezel Set Genuine Birthstone Stud Earrings
If this Christmas is really going to be about celebrating your mom, why not give her a gift that commemorates her birth instead of yours? These genuine birthstone earrings are bezel set in sterling silver for maximum sparkle and shine. Depending on the stones you choose, they might also be one of the most affordable gifts for mom that you’re going to find this year. As you might expect, stones for some months are a bit more expensive, but even the most precious of them still make a perfectly affordable gift idea for her. We love the simplicity and shiny silver of these stud earrings, but there are lots of options with different looks and designs. The Sterling Silver Cushion Cut Birthstone with White Sapphire Halo Stud Earrings are especially sparkly, and most come in at around $25. If mom loves a bit of dangle, you could get her a pretty lever back earring set. We really love the Sterling Silver Round Checkerboard Cut Gemstone Leverback Earrings because of their especially interesting cut. If you wanted to get with your siblings, you could each get her a different pair, marking your own birthdays, and she’d have a lovely earring collection to wear all year long.
Price: $19.50 – $52.53
7. Betsey Johnson Mystic Baroque Queens Gold Pendant Locket Necklace

The Italian Sterling Silver Lotus Flower Locket Necklace has four different background colors to choose from, and looks more like a fashion piece than an old fashioned locket.
8. EVER FAITH Women’s Austrian Crystal Flower Leaf Bouquet Brooch
We simply couldn’t stop catching our breath over this gorgeous Austrian crystal brooch bouquet, and we’re pretty sure your mom will feel the same. This stunning jewelry gift for mom will look luscious on her winter coat, or a sweater that has coordinating colors.

This lovely piece comes in fifteen different color combinations, so it should be easy to select one in a color that you know she loves. If she loves butterflies, the Empress Monarch Winged Butterfly Swarovski Crystal Brooch is an absolute stunner, and it comes in six color combinations. And we love the vintage styling of the Alilang Art Deco Peacock Feather Pin Brooch for it’s combination of large and small stones and brilliant colors. When it comes to the perfect and most stylish gifts for moms, we especially know older women love these classic brooches.
9. Satya Jewelry Red Garnet Gold Plated Tree of Life Stretch Bracelet

The stunning tree of life amulet is sterling silver, plated with brilliant 18k gold, so it’s amazingly shiny and beautiful.

The pretty pair will still set you back less than $150. You can also get this gorgeous lariat necklace with turquoise instead of garnet beads, and the Satya Jewelry Classics Onyx Lotus and Tree of Life Triple-Chain Necklace has a beautiful layered look and a whole lot of presence.
