While I’m happy with flowers or a hand-scribbled card, custom jewelry for mom has always been a great go-to gift on Mother’s Day. One of our favorite jewelry shops, Charm & Chain, has some great modern custom jewelry options, but there’s one catch: You have to order now. As in, this second. Mother’s Day is only a month away!

Here are a few of my picks for cool personalized jewelry for  Mother’s Day at the shop that she’ll never want to take off.

Custom jewelry for mom : Personalized Moon & Lola bracelet at Charm & Chain

Custom Acrylic Script Bracelet
I love this pretty modern take on a classic charm bracelet, updated by Moon & Lola with acrylic in your choice of more than 30 colors. Engrave it with Mom, Grandma, or a child’s name. ($60)

Custom jewelry for mom: Monogram tortoise bracelet by Moon & Lola

Custom Tortoise Bangle from Moon & Lola
I love the look of tortoise shell which can be funky and modern, or classic and traditional, making it a smart choice for any mom. This one comes in two widths, but I happen to think chunky is more fun.  ($85)



Custom jewelry for mom: Asymmetrical mini letter necklace at Charm & Chain

Asymmetrical custom letter necklace
Recently we featured really lovely and affordable  custom number necklaces from Julian & Co. If you like the look but prefer a letter–and want it in 14k yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold–Maya Brenner makes this really posh version.  ($240)

Custom jewelry for mom: Monogram acrylic pendant by Moon & Lola

Custom Monogram Pendant
This 1″ round pendant in your choice of colors looks so with either script or block initials, dangling from a gold chain. It’s a great update of a traditional piece–and for a new mom, could be neat to get engraved with a baby’s monogram, then hand it down to her in later years.

Custom jewelry for mom - personalized acrylic block bracelet by Moon & Lola

Custom Acrylic Block Bracelet
Similar to the charm bracelet above, I think this transparent block bracelet is just awesome; it reminds me of something my funky great aunt would have had stashed in her jewelry box from the ’60s. Add a name, or even a birth date, making it perfect for new moms or first-time grandmas. Aw….

Custom jewelry for mom : personalized @ necklace at Charm & Chain

@ Personalized Name Necklace
Whether you’re shopping for a member of the Twitterati or just a social media junkie, this @ name necklace is so very now. It’s not a new idea, but still a fun one. ($139)


Orders must be placed by midnight 4/6/14 to arrive in time for Mother’s Day with ground shipping, a little later for rush.
