Stackable or Traditional?

The first step we will cover in this mother's rings buying guide is the style. There are a ton of options to choose from, but they all fall into one of two main camps. Stackable mother's rings are thinner bands and meant to be worn in multiples on the same finger. Traditional mother's rings should be worn alone on a single finger.

Stackable mother's rings are excellent for growing families. If you're not sure how many children Mom plans to have, don't worry. We can add stones to many of the mom's rings for a service charge plus the market cost of the stone you wish to add. Traditional mother's rings are wonderful for everyone, but especially for grandmothers and those with finger sizes above 8.

Personalized Mother's Rings with Engravings

Once you have chosen the style, the next step is to personalize it for a unique accessory. Adding the names of her children or the birth month will remind her of the special bond she shares with her children. This may sound silly, but carefully record the spelling of each family member's name, and double-check the birth month and corresponding birthstone. Our mother's rings with names and mother's birthstone pendants are case-sensitive. Please distinguish between lower case from upper case. For example, "abc" is considered different than "ABC" on a ring. If you capitalize every letter in an engraving, all letters will be block letters.

Select The Metal

We sell mother's rings made of sterling silver, white gold and yellow gold.

  • Sterling silver is 92.5% silver mixed with alloy.
  • 10 karat gold is 10 out of 24 parts pure gold mixed with 14 parts of an alloy [41.66% gold].
  • 14 karat gold is 14 out of 24 parts pure gold mixed with 10 parts of an alloy [58.33% gold].
  • 18 karat gold is 18 out of 24 parts pure gold mixed with 6 parts of an alloy [75% gold].

The same karat weight system is used for both white and yellow gold. Pure gold is 24 kt and is very soft. Gold is the most common metal used in jewelry in the United States.

For people with sensitive skin or metal allergies, the 10 karat gold may be unsuitable. We recommend 14 karat gold mother's rings.

Choosing Simulated or Genuine Birthstones

We strongly recommend GENUINE birthstones for each mother's ring we sell. Genuine birthstones have superior qualities, including clarity, color, and brilliance. Genuine birthstones are naturally occurring minerals that come from the ground. Genuine birthstones have been treasured and sought-after for centuries.

The simulated birthstones we offer are laboratory-grown gemstones (either corundum or spinel), enhanced with trace metallic elements to take on the appearance of more expensive gemstones. Cubic zirconium, lab grown corundum, lab grown spinel and glass are common materials used to simulate gemstones. There is a NOTICEABLE difference between simulated and genuine stones.
