The fact you exist you can be attributed to your mother and father, then your grandparents, your great grandparents, so on and so forth. Since it’s not Father’s Day, for the moment let’s concentrate on the maternal side of your family tree and Mother’s Day holiday. Even though we celebrate ourselves on our birthday, the truth of it is that your birthday should really be your mother’s day. Due to this terrible travesty, mothers were left without a day in which to be celebrated.
Mother’s Day, the second Sunday of May was originally the celebration of mythical motherhood with goddesses and female deities such as the Virgin Mary, Isis, and Cybele; not as we know it today. It was only during the 1600s that a more modern celebration of mothers started to exist, during a clerical decree in England as ‘Mothering Day’. American settlers discontinued the British version of Mother’s day at first, perhaps due to their busy lives of surviving or because their Puritan ideals conflicted with Mothering day; they focused primarily on devotion of god devoid of bells, whistles, and frills. The first North American Mother’s Day was conceived by Julia Ward Howe’s 1870 Mother’s Day Proclamation. This proclamation was further conventionalized by Anna M. Jarvis, and then finally accepted by the U.S. government in 1908 by U.S. Senator Elmer Burkett. Sunday, May 11, 2008 marked the 100 year anniversary of the government recognized holiday. Over 70 countries recognize Mother’s Day. On that note, let’s move on to some neat collections to purchase when buying mama that ultra-special, one-of-a-kind gift.
This collection is based on the idea that mothers should treat themselves (or be treated, whatever the case may be), all the while celebrating their family. For instance, mother Lacy has two children, Mark and Charles. She really enjoys wearing gold, but doesn’t like sterling silver that much. Charles and Mark pool their money together and buy two round, 14K yellow gold pendants with diamond shaped letters ‘M’ and ‘C’. Mom can now look beautiful, have great accessories when going to various events (informal or formal), and a piece everyone.
There are four kinds of these pendants, in both genders. They include hug, kiss, joy, and love. Most of the pendants are solo female or male, but some come with two children interacting.
Joy – Is depicted by a young boy or girl jumping with their arms outstretched. They can be wearing a number of things, from regular shirts to baseball caps. The joy is supposed to signify the happiness the kid feels based on his love for his mother or grandmother.
Kiss – This kiss pendant features a girl or boy reaching up to receive a kiss. Typically, kids love receiving kisses until they reach that splendid age of, ‘I’m too old for this!’ This pendant makes those memories timeless.
Hug – This one is probably the easiest to identify. Arms held wide open, kids never get too old for a hug. The girls wear bows, frilly dresses, v-necks, pig-tails, so it’s easy to choose a unique variation of these pendants and then engrave a message or name on the front or back.
Love – This kid can be found with feet flat on the ground, arms extended over their head. It comes with the feeling that can be felt every time you see that little cherub reach up at you, eyes full of admiration and unadulterated love.
Mother’s & Grandma Pendants
Although these kinds of pendants come in all shapes and colors; there are hearts, lockets, engraveables, two-toned metals and even tri-colored options. They all convey the same message, your mother is special to you and you want everyone to know just how much so.
