With Mother's Day fast approaching, it's time to start looking for the perfect gift. Chocolates and flowers are great, but you probably want something a little more, and a little extra, to show your mother how much you care. A faith-based personalized gift is often a great way to celebrate.
The question is, what kind of faith-based gift would your mother enjoy?
When we look to the Bible, it's easy to recognize the timeless, perfect gift—jewelry. In Biblical times, jewelry was often the go-to gift for loved ones, especially the women in our lives.
And it makes sense. Jewelry is often an enduring symbol of love, affection, and thanks. What’s even better is that there are several options to choose from! So no matter what kind of jewelry your mother likes, you’re likely to find something she’ll love with faith-based necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
5 Faith-Based Jewelry Ideas for Mother's Day Gifts
Faith-based jewelry comes in all shapes and sizes, with all sorts of meanings. Some blend in and look like fashion jewelry, while others are more openly Christian. Crosses, mini-bibles, medallions, and elegant necklaces are just some of the examples.
Generally, it’s better to get hypoallergenic jewelry to ensure that they enjoy wearing it and there is no discomfort. You may also want to focus on sterling silver, which is incredibly durable and can be worn in all settings.
1. Charm Bracelets
One of the most popular and casual faith-based jewelry is the charm bracelet. Ideally, your charm bracelet gift should be lightweight and easy to wear. What charms you prefer depends on who you plan to give the gift to. Our charm bracelets come in silver, or 18k gold plated sterling silver, with cross and Mary medallion charms. Or you can choose something a bit more functional, like a rosary bracelet for the mother who loves to pray on the fly.
2. Medallion Earrings
Earrings are a long-time favorite for mothers and grandmothers alike. Simple, Mother Mary medallion earrings are a perfect symbol of motherhood. Why not show your mother how much you care by giving her earrings showing the best mother in history?
3. Saint Medals
Saint medals are often popular as a sign of protection. While the Blessed Mother Mary is a common choice, the Saint Christopher medallion is also a great gift for mothers who love to travel. Saint Christopher is known as the patron saint of travelers, whether they are driving home from work or going on pilgrimage to The Holy Land.
4. Creative Necklaces
When it comes to faith-based jewelry, necklaces often have a broad range of designs. Which means you’re more likely to find something perfect for mom. For example, she may appreciate a playful guardian angel charm for casual wear but an elegant two-layer crystal cross pendant for special occasions.
Does your mother often pray the rosary? As a common private and public prayer, the rosary gives millions of Christians hope and comfort. Why not give her a rosary necklace or bracelet that she can use to remember the mysteries of Christ? Made by hand in the land of Jesus himself, a beautiful rosary is the perfect gift of love.
Happy Mother's Day!
As a family-owned business, we know how important it is to cherish those closest to you. And no one is ever as close as your mother:
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." - Psalm 139:13-14
So from all of us at Gloria Jewels, we wish a glorious and happy Mother’s Day to you and your family.
