Jewelry Gift Guide for New Moms

 

 

Jewelry is often the go-to gift of choice for those ‘BIG LIFE’ occasions: weddings, anniversaries, graduations, it’s Wednesday… But there is one present-producing event that often gets the shaft when it comes to shiny things: giving birth.

As a new mom myself, I surely appreciated the deluge of diapers and the like. But do you think jewelry-loving new moms like Rachel Zoe should have to settle for nipple cream and a bottle brushes? I think not! And neither should any of you other mommies out there.

 

So in honor of all that hard labor, ladies, I’ve collected a few of my favorite gift options for new moms. Just click on the heading or image for buying options and more info.

(A sidenote: #1MOM pendants should be banned from NOT JUST our jewelry boxes, gift givers – but the earth.)

1. Pink and Blue Gemstones:

If this seems a bit ‘on the nose’ – think again. Gems like the pink sapphire or aquamarine could remind moms of their gurgling bundles of joy – or could also work as just a fun fashion piece.

Birthstone Jewelry:

 

Always a crowd-pleaser, moms will love to have birthstone gems from the month their babies were born. Especially if it’s an April baby (diamonds, anyone?).

Mom/Child:

 

This traditional jewelry silhouette never goes out of style. And you can find some options with birthstones already in the design.

Charm Bracelets:

 

What better time to start a charm bracelet, right? You can get baby shoe charms, birthday charms, initial charms – the list is endless. I’m waiting on the epidural needle charm to make mine complete.

Teething Jewelry:

 

Carrying the benefit of both ‘Form’ and ‘Function’, teething jewelry gifts are a fashionable way to get jewelry in a new mom’s wardrobe during those grabby first months. And if there’s a patent for drool-proof clothing? I’d like to add that to my list too.

So let’s get out there and make us some shiny, happy mommies, gift givers. Are there any moms out there who have other jewelry ideas they’d like to add? Weigh in!

The Jewelry Insider

February 7, 2011

I am loathe to admit that I missed a very important jewelry item for my Jewelry Gift Guide for New Moms a while back. What new bundle of joy should do without a $17,000 diamond drool-maker, right?

IDEX reports that the Hollywood set is going goo-goo for this gem-encrusted mouthpiece from Personalized Pacifiers – a 14-carat European white gold creation set with 278 white diamonds (3 carats all told).

“Pacifiers can be customized with colored diamonds and engraved with baby’s name, initials, birth date, or birth weight, the company proclaims. “Though we do not recommend actual use, the Diamond pacifier makes a fabulous keepsake and will become a new classic to that of bronzing baby shoes!”

Rumor has it that Angelina Jolie owns a blinged out passy for one of her beloved tykes – and I’m sure the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have them by the boatloads. 
Help us all if Kanye West ever has kids…
 
But blingy baby gifts don’t have to cost one-year’s tuition at an Ivy League school. I personally like this adorable little baby shoe pendant– that at only $79.64 is the perfect price for a shower gift or a ‘dad to new mom’ surprise.
 
Or you can get one with the baby’s birthstone for just a bit more.
 
Until they come out with diamond-encrusted diapers, tanzanite teethers and sterling sippy cups – this will just have to do.
