What Mom Really Wants

May 7th, 2013 / by Andrea Duchon / no comments / permalink

At Love Adorned, we’ve been on the look out for the perfect Mother’s Day gifts for our dear ol’ mums. And with only — days left until the clock strikes MOM, we thought we’d
share our picks with you. Not that you’ve procrastinated on getting a gift or anything. We would never think that about you.

Lauren Wolf Rose Gold Band with Black Diamonds

Kali: I’m getting my mom the Lauren Wolf rose gold band with black diamonds. I chose to get it as a starter ring that I can add to over time, with other bands/rings in
other metals if she wants. It’s a tall order gift, but alas, I didn’t get her anything for her birthday in February, so I feel like she deserves something extra fancy.

Upstate Silk Shibori Scarf

Miranda: I bought my mom the Indigo Hajime Upstate Scarf. I already gave it to her because I wanted her to be able to use it for the winter-to-spring transition. She’s been
wrapped up in it since the day I gave it to her – she loves it!

Michele Quan Ceramic Birhouse

Lily: I think one of the Michelle Quan birdhouses would be perfect for a Mother’s Day gift. The textures and color in her ceramics would look beautiful hanging from an
oak tree somewhere in the Oregon woods. Soon enough it would be full of finches, bluebirds, sparrows, and wrens. The birds would fight over who gets to make a nest in the home. [IN STORE ONLY]

Lou Zeldis Gold and Pebble Earrings

Ally: I’m getting my mom a pair of dangling Lou Zeldis pebble earrings. Not only are they beautiful, but my mom also loves Lou’s story. He was a good friend of Lori’s who
traveled the world collecting pebbles and rocks from beaches and streets to create his treasures. He liked to say it was his way of turning the mundane and forgotten into something special.

Polly Wales Cognac Diamond Ring

Vincent: My mom has always asked me for a 3-stone ring that includes the birthstones of her three children. After all these years, I’m finally taking the plunge this Mother’s Day. I’m only slightly annoyed that April’s birthstone is a diamond. I have my brother to thank for the extra cost.

Lori: For her birthday in January, I got my mom her first iPhone. After a glass of wine at her birthday dinner, she defiantly declared: “What the hell am I going to do with this thing, Lori?!”

Stained Glass Feathers

Stained Glass Feathers

Fast forward five months later and she loves the thing – she’s texting photos to her granddaughters, speaking in text code, and yes…even stalking Instagram. When we
put the stained glass feathers in the window of the store, she saw them on the Love Adorned Instagram feed and promptly called me to say that they’re the most beautiful things she’d ever seen. BAM! Makes my job easy. Happy Mother’s Day! [IN STORE ONLY]

Handmade Mother's Day

Handmade Mother’s Day

Nina: I always draw my mom an original card and make sure to call her first thing.

So the moral of the story here is, it doesn’t matter if you’re getting mom the most expensive gift, or the most original. At the end of it all – JUST CALL YOUR MOTHER ALREADY!

Pitango Gem Pile

We have been big fans of Pitango since the New York Adorned days, and are so excited to have more of his pieces back in the shop. No two of his rings are exactly like the other, each exhibiting artisan scrollwork and gems of all kinds. This selection is made with fine silver and copper, mixed with gemstones like moonstone, labradorite, onyx and garnets. One might say that they’re for the more adventurous jewelry wearer, but you never know when just the right magic ring might convert you. Come by the shop or check them out online and see what happens!

Check out Lori and Paul modeling Wrist Ornaments for Refinery29’s Bling Wars: Holiday Edition.

18k Gold Blanket Earrings with Enamel

18k Gold Blanket Earrings with Enamel

THIS JUST IN: Designer Kate Jones spent her childhood on a sailboat in the Caribbean named “Ursa Major.” Since then she’s traveled around the world, from Australia to Maine and through Central America. Her aptly named jewelry line seems to reflect her love of adventure, with tribally inspired shapes that are still simple and classic.
