Overview

Sometimes moms are overlooked during the flurry of gift giving that surrounds the birth of a new baby. Jewelry is an ideal option that will make her feel special, pampered and appreciated. Birthstone rings, charm bracelets and pendants all make great jewelry gifts for new moms.

Birthstones

Buy the new mom in your life a piece of jewelry featuring her baby's birthstone. Stacking birthstone rings, like the set available from RedEnvelope, are a popular and modern choice and can easily be added to as the family grows. A gift of birthstone jewelry is the perfect choice for commemorating the birth of a new child, whether the new mom is your wife, sister, best friend or daughter. Also birthstones make great mother's day gifts.

Charm bracelets

Charm bracelets are a lovely and sentimental way to mark the major occasions in life. Consider buying a bracelet and charm to mark the birth of a new baby. Charms can be added for other children in the family as well as significant achievements and interests. There are several types of charm bracelets to choose from, ranging from classic sterling silver or gold chain bracelets to modern Italian charms. Select a style that suits the new mom's personal style, whether clean and modern or playful and whimsical.

Necklaces and pendants

Simple, modern pendants offer an alternative to fussier, traditional mother's jewelry. Sterling silver or gold discs or rectangular panels can be stamped with the baby's date of birth or name and worn on a simple chain. If the new mom in your life prefers simple styles, a pendant may be the perfect choice of gift for her. RedEnvelope features a modern, double pendant necklace with the Chinese characters for "mother and son" or "mother and daughter" carved in a mother-of-pearl pendant and the English translation carved onto a second sterling silver pendant.
