Picking the Perfect Jewellery Design for Mother’s Day!

One diamond bangle in between four diamond rings

When you want to mark a momentous occasion, diamond jewellery does it like no other gift.

Why is that, you ask? Well…

Flowers wilt, a nice meal lasts a couple hours, a gift card gets spent: but the right designed jewellery will last a lifetime and every time she looks at it, or hopefully wears it, she’ll remember this special moment.

She’ll remember how you shared in welcoming your child, or meeting your first grandchild. She’ll remember your loving gesture of appreciation for the amazing mother she is.

Diamond Jewellery is really the best option to commemorate a truly special moment, like the 1st Mother’s Day after a new baby, or a first grandchild. Or even if it’s “just because” this Mother’s Day, that can mean even more.

But how do you pick out a beautiful, quality designed jewellery that she’ll love?

And, even more so, how do you make sure you’re not getting taken for a ride by a shady dealer?

How to Get a Special Jewellery Design For Her Unique Tastes

1. Get to know her jewellery style & what she wants:

Simply looking at the pieces she wears can tell you a lot. Does she like bigger more prominent jewels, or does she lean toward more minimal delicate pieces? The ones she saves for special occasions where she wants to dress up and feel beautiful are likely her favourite pieces. Pay particular attention to those styles.

Most women will also give you some hints as to the type of pieces they like to wear, often even stating preferences aloud. So, think back to any hints she may have already given.

Or, if you want more feedback, you can even ask some subtle questions about the jewellery she wears. Simply notice something she has on, compliment her about it and ask a question about the gemstone, or the style if you can fit one naturally into the conversation. This is a good way to get her talking about her jewellery style preferences.

If you have any pictures of her wearing visible jewellery from special occasions, those can be a wonderful resource to get an idea of her favourites. You can even bring the images in to an experienced jeweler to give you an expert eye in identifying what she’ll really love.

2. Identify what type of jewellery design you want to get

Identify what type of jewellery design you want to get
A jeweller might be able to help you here, but you’ll want to identify what sort of present you’re looking for. Do you want to get her a necklace? Earrings? A full matching set?

The most popular Mother’s Day jewellery items that are trending now are stackable diamond rings. Not only a favourite gift, but can be a very affordable one as well. And the safest, most consistently popular and well-loved staples for any woman are diamond solitaire studs, diamond tennis bracelets, and diamond eternity stackable bands.

3. If you’re celebrating an occasion: think about how the piece can relate to the special event

If you really want to step it up a notch and immortalize this important moment, think about how the piece can connect to the celebration. For example, can you get accent stones in the birthstone of the new baby? Or a custom piece with gemstones representing the birthstone of each grandchild? If you’re really keen on creating a special, unique piece to connect to her, personally, then consider finding good custom jewelers to make something truly one-of-a-kind where all the work is done in-house and on premises.

4. Know your budget

It’s important to establish a realistic budget for your quality piece. This way, when you seek the advice of your expert jeweler, you’ll be able to communicate what you can afford and they can help you find the perfect gift that matches what you can spend.

Finding a Trustworthy Specialist Jeweler in Toronto

Unless you intend to spend years gathering the knowledge, tools and ability to assess gemstones and jewellery yourself… you’ll likely want to focus on finding a jeweller you can trust to help you choose a gift. This is the best way to protect your investment, and make sure you get a great quality gift for your loved one!

1. Established

One of the highest indicators of a trustworthy store is the years it has been in business. You don’t get to be an established business in a community for decades if you’re in the business of cheating people.

An established business is also more likely to stay in business, which means they’ll be able to honour any guarantees and warranties they offer for your piece. A warranty won’t do you any good if this is a company that will close up shop and move on to another location to find new suckers.

A long-lasting, established business is the number 1 must-have.

Another addition to this point is that an established and consistent location or storefront is much more easy to validate than an online business in this respect. If you can directly visit a showroom, that can help you to ensure the business has been part of a community for a while.

2. Reputation

Check for reviews. Not just on the business’s established website, but on platforms where they can’t pick and choose which reviews to show you. For example, on Yelp, or on their Social Media platforms.

3. Guarantees

Guarantees come in a few forms when it comes to jewellery, and you’ll want to look for all of these:

  1. Long warranties: a good Toronto jeweler will offer warranties to ensure you are getting a long-lasting quality item.
  2. Appraisals: Expensive gems should come with an assurance of the authenticity and value. A good jeweler will offer appraisal documents with their high-value products. Ideally, the appraisal should be carried out by an impartial 3rd party, rather than the jeweler themselves.
  3. The jeweler should also be able to show you a stamp authenticating the quality of the metal if you ask for one, not just the gemstones.

4. Specialization & Credentials

Slightly different from being established, you’ll want to ensure your jeweler has the necessary certifications and experience to validate their expertise on the subject. Depending on what services you’re looking for, the necessary certifications can vary. If you’re looking for custom work you’ll want to ensure a certified gemologist, and a certified goldsmith, and/or a certified model maker are on the premises. But, the most important thing in regards to credentials is in the Guarantees section, the appraisal of the jewellery itself matters most!

5. Caring

One of the most important factors in choosing any jeweler is the simple question: do you trust them? When you meet with them do they make you feel that they are listening to what you want? Are they trying to push you to higher ticket items without paying attention to your (realistic) budget, or what sort of a gift you’d like to get?

Do they seem knowledgeable? Are they able to answer all your questions?

The right certified jeweler should make you feel like they care what you want, they care about your needs and budget, and they care about helping you find something that will be a perfect gift for your mother or the mother of your kids!

If you are looking for a specialized goldsmith’s, GIA certified gemologists, and an in-house custom design jeweler team in Toronto that can help give your mom a memorable gift, get in touch with Arax Jewellery.

Google reviews on what our customers are saying about us

When we originally met Eddie to discuss adding diamonds to my platinum engagement and wedding band Eddie provided us with precise details of what he was going to do and gave us a very good idea of how it was going to look like after it was finished and when we finally saw the finished product it was more beautiful than we could have imagined!The story doesn’t end there...after a few months later I had damaged my engagement ring so severely that the shape of it was no longer round and was very upset so we took it back to Eddie to see if he could fix it and after a week he restored it to its’ original state and again we could not believe the skill and expertise this man possesses.Also just to let you know this is the first review we have ever written for anyone but we felt compelled to write it because we were so pleased with the amazing personal service and custom craftsmanship we received from Eddie. Also every time we visit Arax we receive a warm welcome from his family and they are the nicest people you would ever want to meet.God bless you and your family and thanks for everything!Catherine and Victorread more

Great service, clean/ professional environment, and fast/ high quality work. After calling a handful of shops, I came into Arax Jewellers to get a ring resized. The price was fair, and the work was done with in a day! They also gave me a rough appraisal and polish on 3 other pieces for no charge. My ring was expertly done. Can't tell it had been upsides at all. It was shining so bright after they cleaned it up. I was truelly impressed. (In response to the man with the negative review commenting on how many of the reviews may be fake due to first time reviews. The gentleman I delt with did mention "if you are happy with our work please leave us a positive review on Google". To which my response was "I was already planning on leaving 5 stars!" It makes sense how someone would want to review for the first time after such an enjoyable experience. Just my two cents.)read more

I went into Arax initially back in January to ask about resetting my diamond into a halo setting. Sevag was professional and answered all my questions. I returned to the store a few months later when I was ready to reset the ring. I showed Sevag a photo of what I wanted, they came up with a rendering then an actual model. We discussed the size of the diamonds to be used and cost etc. Once I approved it, the ring was made in a couple of weeks along with an appraisal report. The ring was exactly what I asked for and it is beautiful. After I saw the my ring, I decided to get a custom made anniversary band made as well. That turned out beautifully too. The store is really lovely inside and the service warm and professional.read more

The most incredible jeweller out there. I had a silver ring that was splitting in two, with two very loose jewels that were no longer connected as the bar holding them together broke and the ring was overall very dirty. Sevag was extremely professional, he explained the process of cleaning and fixing my ring, he fixed it in a timely fashion and when I got it back it looked brand new. I highly recommend coming here for any cleaning or work needed for jewelry! Thanks again Sevag! 🙂read more

I can't speak highly enough of Eddie and Arax Jewellery. I first went to Arax to have a custom engagement ring made with some very specific ideas in mind and a lot of questions. Eddie was very patient and reassuring throughout the entire process. He reassured me that he was making the ring as though it was for his own daughter and I believe it. In the end he delivered a truly stunning ring that exceeded my wildest expectations. It's clear that he has the eye, the years of experience and takes great pride in his work. Eddie is a consummate professional and a true craftsman, and that's true of any one of his family in the shop. I recommend Arax without reservation.read more

I recently received an emerald ring as a gift, but it needed to be sized before I could enjoy it. After reading the reviews, I took the ring to Arax. You will not be disappointed! They are friendly, knowledgeable and highly professional. The service was excellent and quick - I had my ring sized as well as my platinum wedding rings checked and cleaned within 24 hours. I’ll definitely be a returning customer. Thank you!read more

I had reached out by email on a Tuesday to see how much it would cost to repair a chain. I showed up the following Saturday without calling first and the gentleman was in the middle of something. Instead of sending my away, he took 10 minutes away from what he was doing and repaired my chain for me. Great service!read more

His knowledge is top rate along with a lengthy history in the business. Although I didn’t buy, he gained a customer for life in the 20 minutes I spent with him. He’s as honest as they come.Thanks again Sevag! You’re a good man.read more

I first went to Arax Jewellery many years ago at the Don Mills Shopping Centre. I bought several pieces of jewellery there than, and I was SO impressed with the way I was treated. What I call the Old Fashion way because I cannot remember the last time I was treated this way in any store, for many many years. Sincere kind words of wisdom, honesty and highly professional. I was sad to see the mall demolished and with that the disappearing of my favourite jewelry store Arax. Now, many years later, they are back in my neighbourhood at 808 York Mills Road at York Mills Gardens. I am so pleased to see them back here. I brought in several rings that had to be enlarged as well as a pearl earring that was part of a set, necklace, ring, earrings, that I had bought many many years ago at Arax. Something was broken of the earring and the pearl had fallen out, probably from wearing them so often. In the end Eddie did not charge me for fixing a post that was broken on that earring, glueing the pearl back in PLUS taking out all the other pearls and glueing them back to make sure I would not loose any pearls. Imagine, MANY MANY years later Eddie still gives me quality Customer Service! The rings look beautiful, like brand new and I am SO happy to be able to wear them again.I recommend Arax Jewelry to ANYONE looking for that SPECIAL gift for that SPECIAL someone.You shall NOT be disappointed in the quality of Craftsmanship nor in the amazing friendly Customer Service.Be well Eddie, all the best to you and your family.I’ll be back.Tonny Clarke.read more
