Mother’s day is right around the corner. May 9, 2010 keeps inching closer and closer, so the question this year is what to get for your mom this year. Should you get flowers, a nice dinner, or maybe something that will last a little longer? That’s where we can help. This year, why not get Mom one of our beautiful Mother’s rings?
But that gets me wondering, where this whole idea of a mother’s ring came from. After a little digging around the net, I think I have an idea of the origin. According to the Wikipedia entry, the rings originally came from a simple piece of birthstone jewelry. Way before you were born, Mom would have worn a ring that had just one birthstone in it, hers. After the first born son came into the world, Mom got an update. The rings became two bands joined by the son’s birthstones and after each new son came into the family, Mom’s ring would be replaced with a new ring with an additional birthstone for the new baby. Eventually, the birthstones became less focused on a son and expanded to all of Moms kids. So the first born son would have his birthstone, but his sister was also represented on Moms ring.
Today, a mother’s ring comes in many different styles sometimes including stones not only for her children, but sometimes even her grandchildren. The mother’s rings are often given to a mother or grandmother upon the birth of a new child or grandchild, sometimes as a new ring or to replace an old one. They are also very popular around this time of year when you are looking for something that she will love on Mother’s day.
