Perfect Gifts for Moms, Dads and Grads

Always a top-selling item is the Mother’s Ring, a colored gemstone ring with birthstones representing each child or grandchild. If it’s a small family, or if she already has a Mother’s Ring, consider a delightful charm or pendant. Among the popular items are playful baby shoes, teddy bears or boy and girl charms engraved with the children’s names.

A diamond is always a perfect gift, and since she already has an engagement ring, wedding ring and maybe an anniversary ring, why not consider a diamond pendant or a bracelet? Coordinate its setting to complement her other jewelry, in yellow gold, platinum or a combination of the two.

Father’s Day presents is own gift challenges, but this year, there are more options than ever. Supplementing the classic gold, platinum and silver jewelry categories are entire new collections of rings, bracelets, pocket and personal accessories in rugged materials such as titanium, rubber and steel.

These new styles can be as sporty as a stainless steel bracelet with yellow gold details or as dressy as a sleek black titanium ring dotted with diamonds. The best gifts for Dad are usually those that reflect his job or his hobbies. Does he travel for business? Consider selecting a sterling silver money clip. A sports enthusiast? Choose from a range of golf, baseball and tennis motifs in cuff links, pendants and pocket watches.

Gifts for the graduate are another category that offers a wide choice. Our buyers have selected an assortment of items that range from the traditional to the unexpected. For a woman, think about a classical pendant or a ring set with one perfect South Sea or Tahitian pearl, a three-diamond pendant that she can wear every day or a timeless gold link bracelet that will enhance her dress for success look.

For a young man, choose a gift based on his next step. Is he graduating high school and heading for college or completing college and entering the work force? For continuing education, keep the gift simple and useful – a sporty watch or a sterling key holder. For the working man, choose something elegant and functional such as a stylish titanium bracelet or classic onyx or star sapphire ring.
