An elegant timepiece

A timepiece is a telling sign of the wearer’s character. With its high-tech lightweight ceramic case, rose-gold accented hands, and twelve diamond indexes circling the dial, the Rado True Diamonds timepiece is a stylish watch of wearable craftsmanship any discerning mum will appreciate.

Coveted crystals

If there’s one thing that matches the sparkle of a mother, it would be the Sparkling Dance Collection that inspired Swarovski this Mother’s Day. Taking its name after the new suspended Swarovski crystal, the collection features dazzling earring and necklace sets in rhodium, gold and rose-gold metallic tones, highlighting heart, round and pear shaped crystals.

Carry on the sparkly theme with more shiny surprises from Tiffany & Co. A curation of elegant and refined bracelets come in the Elsa Peretti Diamond Hoop Bracelet, a slim spiral piece in 18K gold that start and end with diamonds on each side. Or for an edgier option, the Out of Retirement Interlocking bangle duo of 18K gold and wood makes for a modish accessory. 

Pure pearl splendour

Who doesn't love pearls? It's elegant, it's feminine and it's all together wonderful. Trust us on this, your mum will love the Scarlet pearls from Schoeffel for many reasons. The spectrum of colours, for one, will steal your mum's breath away. From dazzling metallic pink to intense ultra violet, rosy to salmon-pink hues and bright amber bronze; the pearls are carefully fashioned to lend a touch of elegance to the wearer.

No juggling act is comparable to the one mothers accomplish each day.

Ringo features three glimmering ideal cut diamonds wedged between rings – in minimalist white gold or paved with diamonds – and can be worn freestyle; horizontally or vertically. 

A hamper of pampers
