The ultimate jewelry for Mom. Just ask Mom.

I get tired of saying it. I hate saying it. I have it say it. “Because I said so” is passed down to us from our mothers just as it was from theirs. Sometimes there’s no other reason to lay on the kids, or maybe there is but “because I said so” is all you have the strength left to say. That is just what makes this this jewelry for Mom from Kate Spade–either a Mom Said So necklace or mom bracelet–a total winner. How perfect is this for Mother’s Day? My daughter might think it’s funny but I’ll tell you...

Orange Is the New Black lockets, now coming to a neck near you.

I’m a huge fan of the Netflix original series Orange Is the New Black, and I’m also partial to gorgeous jewelry that supports a great cause. So I was pretty excited to discover this lovely limited edition Orange is the New Black locket from KIRAKIRA, co-designed by Suz Somersall and actress Alysia Reiner to benefit the Women’s Prison Association. Reiner plays the assistant warden on OITNB (see, I use the acronym like the cool kids on Twitter), which, as you probably know by now provides a seriously raw look at women in prison and their often unexpected backstories.

I’ve seen my fair share of personalized jewelry for moms, and I tend to lean towards more unique pieces that don’t have me wearing my kids’ engraved names, birth dates, and shoe sizes around my neck. (Well, maybe one, but not all three together.) That’s why think these Morse code name necklaces is a spectacular addition to my Mother’s Day wish list. It turns out that Morse code translates exquisitely into jewelry. Just choose your color and length of silk cord, plus a name, and artist Rebecca Coagan Sharlatt will turn it into a beautiful necklace of gold-filled dots and dashes....

Leather wrap bracelets are so hot right now and I’m hoping the trend doesn’t go anywhere soon. It’s the right balance of casual, fun, and a little edgy, and you can pull it off whatever your style.

Wear one of these gorgeous leather wrap bracelets on their own, or layer with a few other coordinating pieces around your wrist. Or hey–not so coordinating. That’s what’s...
