7 Irresistible Diamond Jewelry Gifts Mom Will Love

This Mother’s Day, celebrate Mom by giving her jaw-dropping jewelry pieces that are sure to create memories she won’t forget. 

Although Mother’s Day will come and go, the cherished memories with Mom remain for a lifetime. The special day is a time of recognition and celebration of moms and those special women who play a significant role in our lives. It is a time for breakfast in bed, family dinners, quality time, and precious gift giving. It also is a time to show gratitude for the extraordinary women who sacrifice generously in order for their children to flourish.

A Moment in Time

Surprisingly, Mother’s Day is an ancient tradition that goes beyond the modern holiday we observe today. The Greeks and Romans mastered the art of celebrating motherhood with an elaborate festival brimming with three days of games, entertainment and food. In the midst of the extravagant party, people commemorated Rhea, the goddess of maternity and motherhood. Known as the “mother of the gods”, her femininity and fertility was idolized and revered by the masses. Although honoring motherhood continued in many shapes and forms over the centuries, it wasn’t until 1908 that it became an official American holiday.

A Glamorous Way to Show Her You Care

If you’re searching for an unrivaled way to show Mom how immensely significant she is in your life, then uniquely handmade fine jewelry is just the answer. Danhov’s diamond jewelry is an extraordinary way for Mom to show the rest of the world she is cherished. Which piece is best for her? Discover seven notable jewelry pieces here that will bring warmth to her heart while making her sparkle and shine like the star that she is.

ZE116 Pink Tourmaline

 

A traditional three-stone ring set with Mom’s favorite gemstones or birthstones of her children is the perfect way to let her know you love and appreciate her today, tomorrow and always.

Diamond rings in the Couture collection are red-carpet-worthy pieces for women who like to capture the spotlight – perfect for an eye-catching engagement ring or a statement-making cocktail ring. These rings look gorgeous on the right or left hand.

Is an Interesting Detailed Shank the New Diamond Halo?

Diamond halos have been the biggest bridal trend for the last few years. Surrounding a center stone with a halo of smaller diamonds creates a contrast that will make the center diamond appear larger. Plus, we agree with the multitude of brides that have chosen a diamond halo engagement ring – it is simply beautiful and elegant.

CL102-4We don’t believe the diamond halo will every go away, and we don’t want it to disappear. But there does seem to be a slight movement within millennial brides to choose something different and stand apart from the crowd while showing their own style – an engagement ring without a diamond halo.

They are bringing the focus back to the center diamond. There seems to be more interest in “quality over quantity” and more attention is being paid to the shank of the engagement ring. Whether it is braided, engraved, split or covered in pave diamonds, more engaged couples are eager to express their personal style with details beyond the diamond halo.

Happy National Proposal Day!

Many people dream, plan, and anticipate for the big day that will lead them down the altar with their soul mate—but before they say I do, they have to say YES!

In the spring, many couples decide to take the next big step in their budding romance because of National Proposal Day. There is no exact date on record when this special day was first observed, but it was created by Texan John Michael O’Loughlin to dedicate a specific day to encourage marriage proposals.

March 20 was chosen as the special date due to the alleged effects of the Vernal Equinox, or spring awakening, to the human hormones, symbolizing the equal forces between the couple necessary in making a marriage work.

Obviously, the question of marriage is traditionally accompanied with a special engagement ring selected with great care. In honor of National Proposal Day, we rounded up some adorable couples that recently popped the question. We wish them all much happiness and a future of fulfilled dreams!

Marissa and Michael

Marissa and Michael

“I don’t even think I said yes before I kissed him 100x over. I looked behind me only to find his entire family, two photographers, and bystanders all watching us! Not only did Mike propose at the most beautiful place on earth, but also made sure that everybody was there to capture that moment. People only dream of experiencing a moment as beautiful as that, and I can’t believe that I was lucky enough to experience that with the man of my dreams. My fiancé took me above the clouds to ask me to be his wife, and I promise to keep him on cloud 9 for the rest of his life.” (HowHeAsked.com)

 

Jeff and Andy

Jeff and Andy

“We had a party on the beach with our friends, but I got antsy and wanted to take a stroll. We stopped to look at a house on the beach. I was making comments about it and wondering why Andy wasn’t saying anything. As I turned to address him, there he was on one knee with a ring box. When we got back to our friends, Andy had arranged for champagne to be served.” (TheKnot.com)

 

Cory and Nathan

Cory and Nathan

“He mumbled something about having loved me for three months and that made us both laugh because it had been three years. That broke the shock, and he started again and it was the sweetest. I said yes, of course, and hugged him and after a minute he asked if I wanted to put on the ring. I was so busy processing everything that I had forgotten about it! After the proposal, I realized that everyone had known it was happening and had been taking pictures.” (HowHeAsked.com)

 

Sonya and Nadeem

Sonya and Nadeem

In the middle of our conversation, he asked if he could have a piece of my watermelon and I said “no, get your own”. He said, “well can you grab a me fork from the basket so I can eat the one in my jar”. As I’m opening the basket, I see a gold covered box! I turn around to ask “what is that?!”, but before I know it he’s on one knee asking me ‘will you marry me?’. After 6 years, I said yes!” (HowHeAsked.com)

For those who haven’t prepared for today as “your big day”, a second chance comes during the Autumnal Equinox on September 23.

Begin the rest of your lives together by proposing with Danhov – a handcrafted engagement ring or wedding band is the perfect symbol of your love.

A ring from our Couture collection (CE162) was highlighted as an option.
