She's so busy you might suspect she never thinks about accessories, but she does. She might spend some days in an old track suit with her hair in a messy bun, or she might be carefully arranging a scarf to cover that spit up stain or finger paint mark on her suit jacket. She shops mostly for the children these days, but that doesn't mean she has everything. She probably wouldn't buy herself a pearl necklace, but she'd love one. Imagine how thrilled she'd be to unwrap a Christmas present and discover an elegant strand of freshwater pearls.
Perhaps she has a basic, single strand pearl necklace and pearl stud earrings, but now it's time to add to her collection. It's time to remind her that as busy and crazy as life is right now, you treasure her even if you don't get a chance to remind her as often as you'd like to. Indulge her with a stunning pearl necklace to remind her that you still see how beautiful she is. It's an ideal Christmas present for mums.
What would be just the Christmas present for mum to add to her jewellery collection? At this stage in life, think beyond the basics. Go for something really special, something unusual that stands out and turns heads. Here are a few suggestions for the best pearls for mums.
