A Mother’s Love: The Guide to Meaningful and Wearable Gifts You’ll Want to Borrow

A Mother's Love

The Amulette de Cartier is a classic introduced to me by my sister. Always the best-dressed Hagen sister, she would match her Lip Smacker to her outfit while I was matching my soccer shorts to, well, nothing. I have since grown out of that phase but I now find her attention to details as something to study as opposed to mock. Take a cue from someone who is always ahead of the crowd and show your love with a Carnelian or Mother of Pearl version, a lovely addition to any long-term jewelry collection. Carnelian, $2,080, and Mother of Pearl $4,150, at Cartier.

A Mother' Love

When your Mom is the lady that has everything (Watch? She has a person for that. Manolos? She has him on speed dial.), this is the only thing that will cut it. Then again, if she has a Tiara, I am suddenly up for adoption. This “Important Edwardian Diamond Tiara” from around 1910 can be converted into a necklace, for when her dainty neck muscles can’t hold the heft of her bountiful gift. Face it, your mother is a modern day queen. Stop resisting. On 1st dips for $1,080.
