Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11th.  It is celebrated nationally on the second Sunday of the month of May.  According to the website www.history.com, the history of Mother’s Day began from “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” which were started by Ann Reeves Jarvis prior to the Civil War.  These clubs were meant to teach women to care for their children.  Then in May 1908 after Ann Reeves Jarvis has passed away, her daughter, Ann Jarvis, organized the first official Mother’s Day at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia.  Several years later, through lots of hard work and campaigning, Ms. Reeves saw President Woodrow Wilson proclaim the second Sunday of May officially as Mother’s Day.  Today we take Mother’s Day to honor, appreciate, and spoil our mothers in a variety of ways, each one to show her how special she is to us on this wonderful day.

At Ellis Jewelers we want to help you find your mom or the mom of your children that unexpected gift to honor her.  Mom may be expecting the royal treatment on Mother’s Day, but you can catch her even more off guard by surprising her with a piece of jewelry. We have a few suggestions of unique gifts especially for Mother’s Day.

Fingerprint Jewelry

Our line of fingerprint jewelry allows you to capture your baby or child’s fingerprint forever on a piece of jewelry – be it with a pendant, charm,  or ring.  Simply bring in the person of your choice – a baby, child, grandchild, niece, or nephew. We will scan his/her fingerprint onto the computer, give us a week and we will have your custom piece, ready for Mom!  The jewelry comes in sterling silver or white or yellow gold and is a beautiful way of showing your love for Mom, Grandma, or Auntie!

Heart Shaped Jewelry

Love in jewelry is often symbolized by the heart.  At Ellis Jewelers right now we have many pieces of heart jewelry in silver and gold.  Our Belle Étoile collection offers some fun pieces of heart styled jewelry in red and black, and right now with a $300 purchase you will also a free star pendant and silk cord.  We also have some sterling silver and white gold and yellow gold diamond pieces in heart shapes as well as a beautiful yellow gold and diamond Estate necklace.  Hearts are a unique way to say Happy Mother’s Day.

Karisma and Hershey Kiss Jewelry

Our Karisma line and Hershey Kiss line also make sweet Mother’s Day gifts.  These are sterling silver pieces that pay tribute to Mom through charms and pendants with special sayings geared for Mom.  Definitely a great gift for her from a child!

Come on in for Mother’s Day suggestions from our expert staff.  We want to honor those special moms, too, by offering a Mother’s Day bouquet from May 1 – May 10 with a purchase of $199 or more.  It’s one way that we can say thank you to all those terrific moms out there.  HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
