Mothers jewelry usually consists of the birthstones relating to the mother’s children. It can also contain stones that represent the mother and father as well. Birthstones signify the month in which the family member was born.

Jewelry that is linked to twelve months or signs of the zodiac goes all the way back to the Bible. The High Priest in the temple often wore a garment adorned with the twelve stones that represented the twelve tribes of Israel.

The first type of mothers jewelry featuring the birthstones of children was a piece made with two wedding bands joined by birthstones. These rings were a big seller during the 60’s and it was traditional that the stones be set from oldest child to the youngest.

Birthstones are said to have powers specific to the stone and the person wearing them is empowered by the stone. An example would be that March’s birthstone is aquamarine. This stone is said to attract affection and friends. A mother wearing aquamarine in honor of her child should be well liked and have many friends. The legend also states that as long as the mother wears her children’s’ birthstones, they will be protected.

Mothers jewelry in this day and age comes in many guises. There are necklaces with drops of stones, bracelets with bands of birthstones and broaches that sparkle and shine with the stones of the family. Rings continue to be most popular probably because of the age old belief that rings symbolize eternity or a never ending circle. Wedding bands are always worn on the left ring finger because this finger is associated with the heart. The mother’s ring can also be worn on this particular finger.

Some mother’s rings come in straight lines of stones around the ring while others can have one central prominent stone with several smaller ones positioned around it. Sometimes the largest stone will represent the mother with other stones representing the children the larger the oldest child and then graduating down from there. Mother’s jewelry, be it a ring or necklace is a wonderful representation of family.
