Thoughtful Pearl Jewellery Gifts for Mother’s Day

You taught me to say Please and Thanks,
Because politeness is the way,
So ‘Please’ can I borrow some money? Thanks!
Just kidding.
Happy Mother’s Day!

With Mother's day fast approaching, we’ve put together a list of pearl gifts for Mother’s Day. Remember this encompasses the mother figures in your life. Read on for some our favourite suggestions.

Mother’s Day pearls: 9 gift ideas

1. Pink Pearl Necklace

Pink pearl necklaces exude femininity and bring a touch of warmth to any outfit - they are also associated with generosity and kindness. Strong pinks look striking with dark skin tones, peach hues work well with skin that tans well, and frosty pink pearl necklaces suit pale complexions best. Opt for a classic single strand for an elegant, everyday look or go bold with a baroque, multistrand design.

2. Pearl Chain Necklace

A contemporary twist on traditional pearl strands, our pearl chain necklaces can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. They are also available in silver, gold and rose gold shades.

Long pearl chains can be layered over casual outfits to create a sense of laid-back glamour and the length is flattering as it elongates your silhouette. Choose a subtle pearl chain pendant to wear as a daily reminder – pearl pendants have stood the test of time due to their simple elegance. .

3. Grey Pearl Earrings

A set of grey pearl earrings will make an ideal jewellery gift. Providing a neutral base for various outfits, grey pearls are quickly becoming a jewellery box staple. They also offer the perfect balance between black and white if you’re not sure which to go for.

Light greys stand out against dark complexions, while dark grey pearl earrings create a stunning contrast next to paler skin tones. Choose from simple Freshwater studs or pretty two-tone Biwa pearl drops.

4. Double Strand Pearl Necklace

Looking for a classic set? Loved by the royals and modern day fashion icons, double strand pearl necklaces offer an elegant, vintage-inspired feel that is guaranteed to elevate your outfit. Plus, the multiple strands will also conceal wrinkles around the collarbones as the years pass.

Opt for a white double strand pearl necklace for a timeless look. Or, if you prefer more casual jewellery, tone down the formality with a modern grey pearl design – ideal for the weekend with a loose shirt and jeans.

5. Black Pearl Necklace

A bolder and equally popular alternative to white, black pearl necklaces are a perfect jewellery gift for outgoing mums. From bespoke dyed Freshwater pearls to multi-tonal Tahitian designs, you’ll be gifting a modern pearl necklace that works well with every colour.

Our long silk styles peppered with black Freshwater pearls offer a relaxed look for the daytime. Meanwhile, our Tahitian pearl pendants feature an intricate silver swirl holder and are just enough to add a hint of va va voom to simple outfits.

6. Pink Pearl Earrings

Bringing an air of grace and romance to any look, pink pearl earrings are a thoughtful Mother’s Day jewellery gift. They also come in a spectrum of shades, from creamy peach to deep pinks to suit your mum’s skin tone.

Opt for luminous pink Biwa studs for an unfussy finish during the day, or select a set of subtle pearl hoops that can be worn in a host of different scenarios. We also have myriad pink pearl drop earrings that provide a glow-enhancing effect for the wearer.

7. Black Pearl Bracelet

Help add the finishing touch with an edgy black pearl bracelet. Our warrior-inspired Tahitian pearl bracelets combine pretty peacock overtones with leather strands to create a stunning gift for mums with a warrior spirit.

Alternatively, if your mum would prefer a more subtle jewellery gift for Mother’s Day, how about an understated pearl chain bracelet? Featuring a single Freshwater pearl, this design is perfect for everyday wear, date nights and everything in between.

8. Grey Pearl Necklace

Refresh your mum’s jewellery collection this March with an effortlessly stylish grey pearl necklace. This contemporary piece is achromatic (colourless) and as such, will complement an array of shades, including bolder hues like teal, ochre and pink.

Alongside traditional pearl strands, our grey pearl necklace collection features unique M&M designs and Art Deco-inspired Biwa pearl and rock crystal lasso necklaces. Both of these are great options if you’re looking for something a little unconventional.

9. White Pearl Necklace

The white pearl necklace is a staple piece that should never be overlooked. Its popularity has endured for decades thanks to its simplicity and ageless versatility. So, if your mum doesn’t have one in her jewellery box just yet or hers has seen better days, white pearl necklaces are a wonderful choice of pearls for Mother’s Day.

Keep things simple with a customary single strand design or choose a seed pearl necklace for a pared back look. We also supply white pearl necklaces with a mix of colourful gemstones like amber – perfect for mums with larger than life personalities.
