Mother's Day is just around the corner, but if you're struggling to shop for your leading lady this year, we've made it easy for you to find the most thoughtful gift.
Of course, flowers and chocolates are always lovely presents, but the flowers rarely last more than two weeks and the chocolates even less so! So, why not show your gratitude and affection for the ladies in your life this year with a piece of jewellery that's made to last? We have a wide selection of beautiful jewellery designs available at prices to suit any budget - and if you're not sure where to start, read on for our top ideas for Mother's Day.
Our Mother's Day gift guide is split up into different sections below to make finding the perfect piece easier for you. We hope you find this guide helpful, and that you find the perfect Mother's Day jewellery gift for the women you couldn't live without.
Jewellery for Her by Type
The first question to ask yourself when buying jewellery gifts is: 'what type of jewellery will she love?'. Then, you should consider how much of a surprise you want it to be, as for rings and bracelets you will need to know her ring or wrist size. If she already has similar jewellery to the gift you'd like to buy her then you could always measure that, and if you need a way to check a ring size you can do so using our app.
However, if you'd like to avoid any sizing issues, earrings, pendants and necklaces are beautiful gifts. Maybe the lady in your life already has a ring and you'd like to find her the matching earrings and/or pendant, so she has a suite of jewellery to wear? The options for this are limitless, and a Mother's Day gift set would really make her day.
If you're buying a pendant, don't forget to add a chain to your selection too - we have a huge range of designs to choose from. Maybe you'd even like to buy a matching pair so you can have matching mother and daughter jewellery? Whatever you're planning, you can start with the links below and then use the options on the left of the page to further narrow your search.
Jewellery for Her by Gemstone
As a starting point, maybe she doesn't yet own her birthstone? If not, birthstone jewellery is often the best place to start when it comes to choosing a gemstone. We also thought it might be helpful if we narrowed down our extensive gemstone list to ten of the most popular choices our collectors have bought over the years.
Maybe this is a first ever Mother's Day gift, or a gift for a mum-to-be? Diamond - probably the most famous stone of all - is always a gemstone that says 'I love you', and gemologically speaking it is also incredibly hard, making it suitable for wearing every single day.
Diamond is known as one of the big four gemstones - those that have incredible histories steeped in legend and lore and have traditionally commanded the highest prices. The other three are Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire, which all have very distinctive, unique glows and would make amazing centrepieces in any jewellery collection.
Amethyst bears a regal purple hue that can vary quite widely in tone to give a range of incredible looks, and we've included Opal and Pearl here too as they're both classic and elegant gemstones that everybody should own. Kunzite is a bright, glowing pink gemstone and is featured in the image above this section - its colour is truly sumptuous. Aquamarine is a beautiful and soft light pastel blue colour and goes well with a range of looks and outfits, and we've ended the selection with Tanzanite - a gemstone only discovered in the late 1960s that has taken the world by storm in a very short space of time.

Jewellery for Her by Colour
There are so many gemstones to pick from that it can be a little overwhelming at first, especially when buying jewellery for the ladies in you life. However, we always find that the best way to start is by exploring the gemstones that display her favourite colour. From bright glowing reds through to warm oranges and zesty yellows, the top half of the rainbow is well-served by Mother Nature's finest stones. Working our way down there are also vibrant greens, beautiful blues, regal purples and always fashionable black gemstones too.

Jewellery for Her by Precious Metal and Price
Does your leading lady have a preference on which precious metal her jewellery is set into? Gemporia offers a wide range of designs set into Silver and Gold - including Yellow Gold, White Gold and Rose Gold. We also have a small selection of exquisite designs set in Platinum, which would make for a rather special Mother's Day gift indeed.
The type of metal has a significant effect on the price too. When people search for 'affordable Mother's Day gift ideas' they probably don't expect to find genuine gemstone jewellery, but thanks to our ability to source gemstones at the best possible prices and the fact we make most of our jewellery in-house, we are able to keep our prices surprisingly affordable. At the time of writing, there are Silver rings available on this website for under £20. Rose Gold is a particularly fashionable metal at the moment, and works wonderfully well with warmer coloured stones (like the Cruzeiro Topaz shown above).
Click on these links to explore the different metals on offer, where you can use the options at the top of the page in the filter menu to narrow your search by jewellery type. You can use these options to choose between 9 karat and 18 karat Gold, or White and Yellow Gold etc. You can search by price, too, and we've got you started below with under £50 and under £150 options.

Gemporia Gift Cards
If you're really not sure what the perfect gift for your leading lady would be, our gift cards allow you to show the same sentiment whilst giving her the ultimate choice!
Gemporia gift cards have been incredibly popular with our customers as they allow you to show the meaning behind giving a jewellery gift, but with the choice of the perfect design going to the recipient. You can choose the value of the card between £10 and £500, and we can either send a physical card or an emailed digital card. This second option is particularly useful as a last minute Mother's Day gift idea or if you're shopping close to the day itself.
Who knows: perhaps the best gift to give her this year is one of her own selection?
