Mother’s Day is this Sunday and, for some, finding the perfect gift is overwhelming. Our advice at Metalmark is to focus on finding a gift that creates bonds and builds memories. The gift of jewelry does just that, which is part of why we love fine jewelry so much! Each member of our team has unique memories about how jewelry brought them closer to their mothers, and we thought we would share a few with you as a Mother’s Day treat!
As a young girl, I loved watching my Mom get ready to go out for the evening. I would sit on her vanity to watch her pick out her jewelry and get all dolled up. I loved hearing the stories behind the jewelry. There is more than one occasion when I would make her late because I loved trying on everything. She was always patient with me, at least that's what I remember!
Little did she know I'd go back and try everything on again after she left!
She had a story to tell me about every piece of jewelry. Where it came from, who gave it to her. These questions rolled into questions about my family.
Being a mom who is also a business owner is incredibly challenging. I am always looking for more hands, more hours in the day and worried that my job will get in the way of being the best mom I can be. The amazing thing is that by opening Metalmark I have realized that my kids, particularly my girls look at their own dreams in a completely new way. They believe they can do anything they put their mind to because they have watched me at the store. When I listen to them talk about my jewelry with friends it is the absolute best gift they give me as a mom. Being their mom is the most amazing job I've ever had, but opening Metalmark with their big eyes watching every speed bump and every triumph is equally as cool.
My mom works extremely hard to make Christmas special for our family every year. Last Christmas, my dad and I conspired to get a diamond in my mom’s wedding band replaced as as surprise for Christmas. I say “conspired” because getting anything past my mom is not easy, but we did it! We added a new, gorgeous diamond to her band and put it under the tree right in the knick of time - on Christmas Eve. The next morning, the whole family - in on the secret - just wanted mom to open her present right away. Mom being so happy felt like a gift to all of us!
We would love to celebrate Mother’s Day with you this Sunday. Stop by after brunch or before your afternoon ice cream! Metalmark will be open from 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. We would be honored to help you find the perfect piece of jewelry for your mother or to find ideas for an original, custom design.
Happy Mother’s Day!
The Metalmark Team
