Even as a child, there was something special about knowing that Nonna had my birthstone on her family ring. It always made me feel warm, safe and loved. While I’m sure it was important to her to have me represented on her ring, it mattered equally as much to me and had a far more significant impact on me than I realized at the time. This Mother’s Day, I encourage you to choose a piece of family jewelry for the mom in your life. As a mom myself, I love having a mother’s ring that serves as a tangible reminder of my children. I also love showing my kids their birthstones, which hopefully will have as big of an impact on them as it did for me when I was little.
