From when I was in high school, I’ve always worn a piece of jewellery from my mom. From about Grade 9, I always wore a dainty silver bracelet that had my mom’s name on one side and my name on the other side. I used to hide it under my watch so that the teachers wouldn’t confiscate it.
In university, my mom bought me a silver infinity ring. I was going through a really hard time and my mom bought me that ring to remind me that I’m always surrounded by infinite love.
I only took it off a few months ago due to developing eczema right under the ring. I was lucky enough to have recently been the bearer of my mom’s latest jewellery clean out and I now wear her gold bangles.
It’s amazing when I think of it, how I’ve always worn something from her.
Joined By Love
This year, for Mother’s Day, Pandora has released a collection called Joined By Love that signifies the bond of motherhood as well as embracing the people you feel connected to. So it’s not a collection just for mom’s but for whoever is special in your life that you can a connection to.
A few of the new items in the collection have the design of the knotted heart jewellery. They’ve taken classical symbols, which link to timeless emotional bonds, and knotted them with modern twists to make the jewellery so versatile and relevant. All of this creates a personal touch. One of my favourite pieces from the collection is the Knotted Heart Ring which you can find online here.
Spoils For Mama Syl
Pandora kindly gifted me a beautiful charm and a cleaning kit that I’m giving to my mom for Mother’s Day. She and I are both big Pandora lovers (See this post here) and I usually buy her a charm for her birthday, or sometimes a new bangle as we both agree that too many charms make it too heavy. So I’m really hoping she’ll enjoy this special gift.
