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!

Hot Trend: Teething Jewelry




New moms, like myself, have reluctantly retired our everyday jewelry box items for a spell until our little ones are no longer apt to drool on the diamonds (or yank them from our necks, as the case may be). But mommy bloggers-turned-entrepreneurs are buzzing about a new jewelry trend that will bring the bling back to our post-baby lives – teething jewelry!

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

Made from stuff that includes letters moms like to see (FDA-approved, BPA-free), teething jewelry replaces your colored gemstones with colorful silicone made into necklace, bracelet and key chain styles.

My favorite hails from Smart Mom Jewelry – a donut-shaped pendant that comes in every color of the rainbow (I’m partial to trendy turquoise for spring – especially with the $19.10 price tag). The ‘smart moms’ who started this company have a patent pending for the miracle gems and even have a cadre of celebs convinced – from Angela Basset to uber-mom, Tori Spelling.

According to a recent ABC News report, there are many other hot teething jewelry sites on the rise, including:

I smell a Mother’s Day gift idea…

What do you guys think? Would you wear teething jewelry while your babes cut their cuspids? Or do you think it only encourages the little tykes to snarf on the real deal? Weigh in!
