There was a time when I never thought I’d wear mommy jewelry. “What’s the point?” I thought. “Obviously I love my daughter, I don’t need some necklace or bracelet to prove it.”
Fast forward 2 years and my daughter is growing up right before my eyes. She doesn’t want to cuddle anymore and her kisses are usually just bribes for candy or more toys. Now I understand mommy jewelry. Yes, it is a way to show the world how much you treasure being a mom, but it’s also a symbolic way to carry your child with you everywhere you go. My daughter is only 2 and already has a social life of her own that barely involves me, so a pretty necklace with our initials is a nice reminder that even when we’re not physically together we still sort of are.
You with me? Then check out these pretty pieces from Stella & Dot, a cool jewelry boutique I just stumbled upon. I’m thinking of pairing 2 initial charm with a “mom” charm. Now, I just have to decide between the necklace or the bracelet. Or both…
