Mother’s Day Jewelry: Ten Elegant Pieces Worthy of Mom’s Affection

No hearts, hugs, or other jewelry-store cliches here

Bless moms. Those special human beings not only birthed us and kept us alive for eighteen-ish years, but they also had to appear newly thrilled every time we tried to thank them on Mother's Day with a folded piece of Crayola-abused construction paper and a carnation. Or, if she was really lucky, a macaroni necklace and Eggo waffles in bed. 

So, you children who are now adults: You owe mom a proper thanks this year. (Read: Up the budget from the "dried Bertolli" level.) It's not just for all that unconditional love and stuff, but for her kind appreciation of your childhood DIY art efforts.

I suggest one of the 10 luxurious—and noodle-free—baubles below that sparkle as much as she does. From a diamond pendant necklace to a emerald tennis bracelet and a modern silver cuff, there is definitely something for every type of matriarch. Just don't forget the card. (For some reason, they really like those cards.)
