It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! This comes in from bride-to-be, Anna, who is figuring out what to give her mom as a gift on her wedding day and has something specific in mind. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline! I’d like to give my mom a gift on my wedding day to say thanks for all she’s done for me. She likes jewelry, so I was thinking of a necklace. Do you have any suggestions for any mother of the bride necklaces that might work? Thank you.”
Great question, Anna! As you pointed out, she likes jewelry, so I think a necklace is a good idea. For jewelry gifts, anything engraved or personalized adds that extra touch she’ll appreciate: it’s custom-made just for her.
Since we’re crazy about handmade everything here, obviously we think handcrafted jewelry is the best place to start for mother of the bride necklaces. There are many shops out there, but one that we recently stumbled upon — Gracefully Made Jewelry — offers a very beautiful array of personalized jewelry that fits in perfectly here. These pieces are handmade at its finest, hand-stamped and lovingly crafted just for you.
We’ve hand-picked four necklaces that make the ideal mother of the bride gifts. Each necklace offers a different style, from modern circles to classic pearl accent jewelry. I hope you find the perfect necklace for your mom on this list.
Mother of the Bride Necklaces
This infinity necklace is my favorite; if you’re interested, there’s also a three-circle necklace that makes a lovely gift for grandmothers.
1. Circles Intertwined necklace
This necklace features two infinity circles, representing your never-ending love as mother and daughter. Available in gold, rose gold, or silver.
2. Mom, We Love You necklace
This necklace features two engraved pieces: a heart with “mom” and a metal bar with “we love you”. This makes a sweet gift for your mom because it’s from the two of you and your first gift together as a married couple.
3. Handstamped Mama necklace
This is a perfect necklace for mom and can be stamped with ‘Mama’ or ‘Mom’ or anything you prefer. :) I like the addition of the pearl, which adds a little wedding element to it.
4. Gold Disc Mom necklace
These make the beautiful mother of the bride necklaces or grandmother necklaces; get yours custom-made on this 14kt gold filled disc and 18″ gold filled chain.
Mother of the Bride Bracelet
And although you inquired about mother of the bride necklaces, I wanted to share this bracelet, just in case, if it looks like something she may like. You can choose the birthstones to go on the bangle as charms, which can be those of her children or simply one for her birthstone.
And there you have it: mother of the bride necklace options she’ll love! Thanks so much for writing and we hope this helps.

WEDDING TIP: When you’re giving a gift to the mother of the bride, present it the night before the wedding (at the rehearsal dinner) or the morning of the wedding (while you’re getting ready). You can give a necklace as a lovely gift by itself, paired with a card like this with a handwritten note inside.
P.S. Thanks for writing, Anna! If anyone else reading has a wedding advice question, just Ask Emmaline!
