You can tell a lot about someone by the jewelry they wear, and I’m not talking about the amount of money they spend. Wedding rings and promise rings send a message about romantic commitments, cross pendants and Star of David necklaces let people know about religious beliefs, roman numeral rings commemorate special dates and wedding anniversaries (and help you remember them, too!), and family crest rings celebrate family history.

For a mother (or father, for that matter) there should be a way to wear something that reminds you and everyone around you about the greatest joy of your life: your children. It’s more memorable and durable than a pair of photos in your wallet, and it makes for an instant family heirloom for generations to treasure.

As part of its new Website launch, John Christian has a special page dedicate to its mothers’ rings, necklaces and bracelets. John Christian’s Continuous Life series offers personalized products with your children’s names and birthstones in beautiful, handcrafted settings.
