Mothers Rings

If you are thinking of honoring a mother's devotion to her children with a mother's ring we can help. Mother’s rings are a very popular birthday or Mother’s Day gift for both mothers and grandmothers. These rings become very sentimental to mothers everywhere and eventually become family heirlooms passed onto the next generation. The mothers ring contains the birthstone of each child and sometimes includes the parents’ birthstones as well. The process of ordering a mothers ring takes some planning and patience and begins with the ring selection based on the number of stones to be mounted. We will expertly guide you through the ring selection process since there are typically hundreds of ring styles.  The mother's ring can be constructed from gold, platinum or silver.

Mothers’ Jewelry

While mother’s rings are a traditional gift, some mothers prefer a bracelet, pendant or earrings made with their children’s birthstones. We will also guide you through the process of selecting the pendant, bracelet or earrings as well as the gemstone selection.


The table below shows the birthstones for each month of the year with some color variations shown in the comments section. Some of the colors listed represent very rare gemstones and may not be practical for some jewelry pieces. Also, many of the birthstones shown below are available in the lower cost synthetic forms.
