When asked what they treasure the most in life, mothers around the globe universally agree that their children top the list. A mother's devotion can be seen in just about everything she does for her children or grandchildren. For all that our mothers do, it is only natural for us to want to repay them in a very special way.

Of course, in the United States and many other countries around the world, mothers already have their very own special day, which we celebrate on the second Sunday in May. However, now they can commemorate this day or any other memorable occasion with their very own piece of distinctive jewelry. So, what are mothers' rings and how are they special?

Some of the most prized pieces of jewelry in many mothers' collections are mothers' rings. These rings were created to recognize what the majority of moms cherish the most, namely their children. With that in mind, these rings are typically outfitted with a birthstone to represent each of the mother's children.

The Birthstones of a Mother's Ring

Birthstones are used to represent the month an individual is born in. The birthstones included in the ring could be the actual gem or a simulated version. For example, a January baby would be represented by garnet or rose quartz, while a child born in November would be symbolized by a citrine or topaz. A mother's ring is a great way to commemorate a special occasion, such as the birth of a grandchild or the marriage of the youngest child. Either way, this is a piece of jewelry that is bound to be treasured.
