Mother's Day Gift Guide

Good morning everyone!  It is Monday, May 2nd and you know what that means?  Mother's Day is just six days away!  Not sure how any of YOU feel, but for this mama Mother's Day is the most important day of the year.  We mothers work incredibly hard - 24/7 all year long - and it is a day to honor that devotion, dedication and love.  Yes, those handmade gifts are priceless (and are still proudly displayed in my home), but, let's face it - those cannot be worn.  How about a little jewel or trinket to make it extra special?  As you know Citrine carries of variety of designers with unique styles  - for the very reason that each woman has an individual taste and lifestyle.   We are here today to help you match the perfect gift for your special mother.  Keep in mind there is lots more both in-store and online!:

For the Classic Mom:   Not too adventurous with fashion, and prefers the beautiful basics - jewels that are easy to wear with most anything.  This beautiful pair of Ray Griffiths' pearl drop earrings fits this bill perfectly, as it's an updated version of the classic pearl earring.

For the Hipster Mom:  Loves her cozy jeans, flowy tops and stacks loads of bracelets up her arms.  Has a more relaxed approach to fashion.  Anything from Rebecca Lankford Designs will do - she loves to layer necklaces and bracelets and often uses leather and suede as a basis for her designs.

For the Mom Who Has Everything:  Impossible to buy for - we feel your pain.  Not to worry - anything one-of-a-kind will do.  Both Lauren K Fine Jewelry and Stephanie Albertson are pros at this.  Lauren has a wide selection of gorgeous "slice" necklaces, like the blue sapphire with pave diamonds featured, and Stephanie has designed a new flower-shaped, detachable pendant in 22kt gold and opals - both gorgeous!

For the Mom Who Likes Dainty Jewelry:  She is simple in dress and fashion.  Doesn't like a lot of fussy things and barely has time to change her clothes - let alone her jewelry.  Never fear, our new jewels from Astley Clarke, in 14kt yellow and rose gold, are perfect for her!  Small in scale and great for everyday.

For the Mom Who Likes a Bit of Drama:  Generally she prefers larger pieces - perhaps just one necklace or bracelet that will make a big impact.  Catherine Page's chandelier earrings or Gillian Julius' multi strand leather bracelet with silver plated tubes are ideal.  The best news?  Both are easy on your wallet.
