Mother's Day 2021 is coming on Sunday March 14th, so we've put together this list of thoughtful Mother's Day gifts that are all based around jewellery and gemstones.
Flowers and chocolates are always lovely presents, but the flowers rarely last more than two weeks and the chocolates even less so! So why not show your gratitude and affection for your mum this year with a piece of jewellery that will last? Here at Gemporia we have a wide selection of beautiful jewellery designs available at prices to suit any budget, and if you're not sure where to start simply read on for our top ideas for Mother's Day. We've made it really easy for you to find the perfect gift.
Our Mother's Day gift guide is split up into different sections below to make finding the perfect piece easier for you. When you click any of the links below you'll be taken to our jewellery browsing pages where you can further refine your search using the options in the filter menu at the top of the page (just above the first item). We hope you find this guide helpful in finding the perfect Mother's Day jewellery gift.
Jewellery for Mum by Type
The first question to ask when buying jewellery gifts for mum is, "What type of jewellery will she love?" The second consideration is how much of a surprise you want it to be, as for rings and bracelets you will need to know her ring or wrist size. If she already has similar jewellery to the gift you'd like to buy her, you could always measure that, and if you need a way to check a ring size you can do so using our app. We also offer ring resizing as part of our Aftercare service, so if you see the perfect ring for mum, you can always get the sizing sorted once she's received the gift.
Earrings, pendants and necklaces are not only beautiful gifts, but they also avoid any sizing issues if you want to keep the present a secret. Maybe mum already has some rings and you'd like to find her the matching earrings and/or pendant so she has a suite of jewellery to wear? The options for this are limitless, and a Mother's Day gift set would really make her day. If you're buying a pendant, don't forget to add a chain to your selection too - we have a huge range of designs to choose from. Maybe you'd even like to buy a matching pair so you can have matching mother and daughter jewellery? Whatever you're planning, you can start with the links below and then use the options on the left of the page to further narrow your search.
Jewellery for Mum by Gemstone
As a starting point, maybe your mum doesn't yet own her birthstone? To find the perfect piece of birthstone jewellery for Mother's Day, just click here to start your search. We thought it might be helpful if we narrowed down our extensive gemstone list to ten of the most popular choices our collector's have bought over the years. Maybe this is a first ever Mother's Day gift or a gift for a mum to be? Diamond - probably the most famous stone of all - is always a gemstone that says "I love you" and gemologically speaking it is also incredibly hard, making it suitable for wearing every single day. Diamond is known as one of the big four gemstones - those that have incredible histories steeped in legend and lore and have traditionally commanded the highest prices. The other three are Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire which all have very distinctive, unique glows and would make amazing centrepieces in any jewellery collection.
Amethyst bears a regal purple hue that can vary quite widely in tone to give a range of incredible looks, and we've included Opal and Pearl here too as they're both classic and elegant gemstones that everybody should own. Kunzite is a bright, glowing pink gemstone and is featured in the image above this section - its colour is truly sumptuous. Aquamarine is a beautiful soft, light pastel blue colour and goes well with a range of looks and outfits. We've ended the selection with Tanzanite - a gemstone only discovered in the late 1960s that has taken the world by storm in a very short space of time. Please click the below links to explore more about our top 10 Mother's Day gift ideas by gemstone.
Jewellery for Mum by Colour
There are so many gemstones to pick from that it can be a little overwhelming at first, especially when buying jewellery for mum. However, we always find the best way to start is by exploring the gemstones that display her favourite colour. From bright glowing reds, through warm oranges and zesty yellows the top half of the rainbow is well-served by Mother Nature's finest stones. Working our way down there are also vibrant greens, beautiful blues, regal purples and always fashionable black gemstones too. Use the links below to start your search for the perfect Mother's Day gift by gemstone colour.
Jewellery for Mum by Precious Metal and Price
Does your mum have a preference on which precious metal her jewellery is is set into? Gemporia offers a wide range of designs set into silver and gold - including yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. We also have a small selection of exquisite designs set in platinum, which would make for a rather special Mother's Day gift indeed. The type of metal has a significant effect on the price too. When people search for 'affordable Mother's Day gift ideas' they probably don't expect to find genuine gemstone jewellery, but thanks to our ability to source gemstones at the best possible prices and the fact we make most of our jewellery in-house, we are able to keep our prices surprisingly affordable.
At the time of writing there are silver rings available on this website for under £20. Rose gold is a particularly fashionable metal at the moment and works wonderfully well with warmer coloured stones (like the Cruzeiro Topaz shown above). Click on these links to explore the different metals on offer, where you can use the options at the top of the page in the filter menu to narrow your search by jewellery type. You can use these options to choose between 9 karat and 18 karat gold, or white and yellow gold etc. You can search by price too, and we've got you started below with under £50, under £150 and over £150 options.

Homewares Gift Ideas for Mum
If you'd love to get your mum a little something extra to go with her beautiful new jewellery pieces, we've got a wonderful selection of ideas in our homewares collection. From trinket trays and jewellery boxes to massage sets and beautifully scented candles, you'll find a really thoughtful extra treat for mum in these pages. We even have perfumes and sunglasses available, and many of the candles we sell can be reused as mugs or planters once the wax is melted away. The only trouble you'll have is choosing which item she'll love the most!
Unique Gift Ideas for Mum
The best Mother's Day presents are the one's that carry a personal touch, and unique Mother's Day gift ideas don't get much more bespoke than this. Gemporia has a loose gemstone channel and website called Gem Collector that allows you to buy individual gemstones across a wide range of different gemstones. Once you've found the perfect gem you can then have it made into a custom jewellery design if you take it to your local jeweller or jewellery craftsperson. You are only limited by your own imagination when creating a piece of jewellery this way, and the finished piece will surely be a family heirloom for generations to come. To get started, click the link below. Gem Collector streams live onto the web between 5pm and 11pm and you can ask the hosts questions if you would like personal guidance on which gemstone to choose.

Gemporia Gift Cards
Perhaps the best gift to give to mum this year is that of her own selection? Gemporia gift cards have been incredibly popular with our customers as they allow you to show the sentiment and meaning behind giving a jewellery gift, but with the choice of the perfect design going to the recipient. You can choose the value of the card between £10 and £500 and we can either send a physical card or an emailed digital card. This second option is particularly useful as a last minute Mother's Day gift idea - if you're shopping close to the day itself.
This year, we'll also be presenting some very special Mother's Day gift ideas across our TV channels on the day itself - Sunday March 14th 2021. You can send a gift card now and then tune in with your mum on the day itself so she can treat herself to the piece she really wants.
