But this year, I do want something... tangible. I want a mother necklace of some sort. You know... something like this:
Bwahaha... I kid. But seriously, I have avoided mothers jewelry simply because so much of it is really tacky. And I need simple... very simple. I never wear jewelry. I usually have on one ring and the same diamond earrings I put in my ears 7 years ago when my mother gave them to me for my 30th birthday. But I would love to honor my daughters with a pretty piece of bling.
And so I turned to my favorite jewelry store... Etsy, and started shopping. Unfortunately, there were hundreds of thousands of pieces listed under "Mother". (And a lot of those were still tacky too!) But I think I may have narrowed it down.
This one is pretty much as simple as it gets.
I really like the symbolism of the bird here... but not sure about only initials as opposed to the girls' names.
I think the pea pod is super cute, but I would change this font... why, oh why, do people ever use all caps???
For this one, I could have the smaller circle say "My loves." and then all 3 names in the larger circle?
Pretty much as simple as a mothers necklace could come.
And this one offers the symbolism of the bird along with all names spelled out.
Sooo, what do you think? I could really use help deciding... it literally took me hours just to narrow the field this far!
