You’re a mom and proud of it — but that doesn’t mean you sacrifice your fundamental sense of cool. (Mom jeans? Yeah, right.) While you once rolled your eyes at the thought of announcing your mommyhood with engraved trinkets, now there’s jewelry that says, “Okay, I’m a little obsessed with my baby” in stylish and subtle ways. Here are a few favorites. They’re splurges … you deserve it!
Satin Braid Bracelet
When Kate Middleton was spotted last winter wearing “the Duchess” charm necklace from UK e-boutique Merci Maman, the site was flooded with orders. We love the brand’s satin braid bracelets with sterling silver intertwined circles that can be subtly engraved with your baby’s name. Available in a rainbow of colors, they’re casual and nicely priced — perfect for gifts, or moms with babies who like to grab necklaces. $83; delivery takes 9 to 11 days when shipped to the U.S.; mercimamanboutique.com
Email your little one’s best profile pic to CadenceLee, and the jewelry line run by an enterprising mother of two and Rhode Island School of Design grad will make a custom necklace showcasing that kissable ski slope nose framed by 14k yellow gold, white gold or sterling silver. Layer with other strands of necklaces or choose a design that includes a few diamonds to bump up the look. $250 and up, delivery in about three weeks; cadencelee.com
Let your fingers do the talking with stackable bronze rings by Chicago designer and chic mother of one Winifred Grace Gundeck. Include the initials of your newest family member plus your spouse, your pet and yourself. Let them take on bronze’s burnished patina or polish with the special included cloth to keep them mirror-shiny. $184 for set of three rings (initials $3 per ring); delivery in two weeks or less; winifredgrace.com
Asymmetrical Letter Necklace & Earrings
Celebrity favorite and California-based designer Maya Brenner is the queen of jewelry with personal meaning—everyone from Cameron Diaz to Julianne Hough has been spotted representing her roots with Brenner’s state necklaces. We love her mini initials that sit to one side of a super thin chain and are available in rose, white or yellow gold. They’re a sweet, barely-there statement of your love for your little ones, and the letters can be strung up to five per necklace. (Mini letters also available as stud earrings for $196 per pair.) Necklaces $240 with one letter plus $60 per additional letter; delivery within 9 days, mayabrenner.com
