Gift for Mother's Day | an extraordinary unique piece of jewelry

Mother’s Day: How many “thank you” fit into one day?

Are you one of those very lucky people who would win the competition to be the best mom in the world any time? Congratulations! Then you know how much we owe to our mothers. They are our first caregivers and ideally remain so for life. Even when they let us go and send us off into our own lives, the special bond between mother and child will last forever. Fortunately, someone has dedicated their own, very personal holiday to these people in our lives.

Mother's Day: How many "thank you" fits into one day?

Who invented Mother’s Day?

There are many myths and legends surrounding the invention of Mother's Day. Throughout history and depending on who you talk to, it is either dismissed as a marketing strategy by the economy or even as a former propaganda festival by the National Socialists.

It is certainly not too much to ask that we recognize the achievements of mothers at least once a year. If you, like me, can look back on a happy childhood, you probably think that every day should be declared Mother's Day, not just the second Sunday in May. Many countries in the world have chosen this day, but not all. The celebration can be traced back to ancient times.

A heart for the best mom in the world

In Greece and Rome, fertility rites around the goddesses Rhea and Cybele took place at the beginning of May. In Europe, all that remained of the pagan cult surrounding the Celtic Beltane festival on the eve of May 1 was the setting up of the maypole. The Catholic Church adopted these holidays - as well as Christmas - from these predecessor religions and promptly declared May to be the month of Mary.

We owe the celebration of mothers on a special day as we know it today to the women's movements that formed in the USA and Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. The fight for women's suffrage meant that motherhood and the reward for the efforts that mothers made every day around the world should also be recognized. The US Congress sealed this plan on May 8, 1914 with a resolution that declared the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day from then on.

a special gift for the best mother in the world

The special gift for special people

Those who once gave us life deserve lifelong gratitude and recognition. It therefore doesn't hurt to think of something extraordinary at least once a year. As children, we delighted our mothers with homemade gifts. As cute and sweet as that may seem, the focus is on the individually made gift that comes from the heart and is made with love. We should continue this beautiful tradition as adults. If you're not very good at it or simply don't have enough time for creative gift ideas from your own workshop, it's best to leave this task to the professionals.

handmade jewelry is an extraordinary gift for Mother's Day

Handmade jewelry as a perfect Mother's Day gift

A gift for mom that deserves that name? No problem! What ultimately sets presents apart is the care and dedication with which they are selected. Anyone who chooses a sustainably manufactured, unique piece has a good chance of great joy. In addition to rings , earrings or bracelets , one category of jewelry is particularly important: unique pendants that come from the heart and are worn close to the heart.

Gold , silver or bronze ? There is guaranteed to be something here for every taste, every style and every type. Handcrafted from the finest metals, these extravagant pieces of jewelry are sure to elicit a radiantly beautiful reaction from the recipient. Worn on short or long chains , leather or textile jewelry bands and unusual-looking chokers, pendants are versatile, elegant companions. If you want to honor the cycle of life on Mother's Day, take a cue from the cycle of nature.

Leaf pendant: natural jewellery with meaningful symbolism

Those who honor life also appreciate nature and its wonders. The change of seasons is symbolic of human life, which also consists of spring, summer, autumn and winter. The leaf is an imperishable symbol of this perpetual cycle. Even after it dries up and withers in autumn, it is returned to the soil as humus. Those who want to cast love in all its imperishability in the most precious metals choose the leaf as a symbol. Moreover, the probability that such an extraordinary piece of jewelry is already in mom's possession is slim.

What do trees and mothers have in common?

More than you might think. Botany has discovered an exciting phenomenon: how trees in the forest protect their young plants. If a small tree grows very close to its mother tree, it will give up some of the nutrients in the soil to give them to its offspring. But the way in which deciduous trees spread their branches has always seemed like a place of refuge to us humans. With their tree horoscope, the Celts laid an important foundation for our current understanding of nature. Different leaves and leaf shapes symbolize certain characteristics .
