Mother’s Day Gift Guide: The Best Convertible Jewelry

Pendants that spin around with motifs that can be seen on both sides, necklaces chains that wrap around the wrist as chunky bracelets and earrings that transform from hoops into pendant drops—these are all multi-functional and lend a sleek simplicity and added value to  a jewelry wardrobe. These styles, along with others that can be worn in myriad ways make great gifts for Mother’s Day.

The module or interchangeable pieces detach or attach with different creative components that offer the wearer built in versatility. The styles I have chosen for Mother’s Day Gifts convert easily and create multiple looks with just a few quick maneuvers.

Heavenly Vices’ Mother/Father spinner pendant takes the gift giving one step further. Dad can buy mom this beautifully engraved medallion to celebrate her motherhood and to remind her of him and his contribution to the family. Or, it can be given from mother to daughter to represent the love of both of her parents. The spinners are inspired by the Victorian Era, when a spinning mechanism held a two sided disk with a message that revealed itself when the disk was spun. Heavenly Vices has borrowed the concept and paired some  favorite, thematically related love tokens together to form both sides of a spinner. These love tokens are one-of-a-kind, both US Seated Liberty Dimes - Mother minted in 1885 and Father minted in 1871. The spinner is 14K gold with white diamonds

NeverNot’s Grab n Go – Ready 2 Activate ring features a simple center red garnet ring with diamond accents that can be worn on its own or stacked with other streamlined ring. But the ultimate in transforming this ring to its own statement stack, the designers behind the collection have created two 18K gold malachite rings that surround the thinner ring and all fit together like a puzzle with a Deco feeling.

Gabriel & Co.’s 18K White Gold Oval Diamond Link Huggie Earrings are subtly sparkly, sophisticated and the type of earrings that are essential for a jewelry wardrobe. They are featured here in 14K white gold but are also available in yellow gold. They are replete with a pave diamond huggie that can be worn on its own or can be changed into different look by sliding on the pave diamond oval that is part of the module design. Once you do this it transforms the earring into one that is on trend with the link earrings we are seeing today and also has an enduring quality—it’s a must have earring for women who desire easy versatility.

 

Nancy Newberg’s Four Link Gold Hoop Earrings are for women who love to mix their metals and who understand that by doing so, you are opening your jewelry wardrobe up to many more options, These can be worn long—the way in which they are show with white, yellow and rose gold links or can be worn as singles, doubles or triples. Whatever mood strikes you. They evoke a hardware feeling—modern, clean-lined yet with the feminine touch of a woman designer.

Robinson Pelham reworks the ID bracelet in 18K yellow gold. The “love always” plates are perfect for any woman that deserves to know how much she is loved. The bracelet is set with diamonds with an Identity Token Love/Always nameplate set with diamonds.

Graziela’s Evolve Trio hoop earrings in 18K yellow gold and diamonds are at first glance, a study in simplicity. When they are closed, they have the appearance of multiple hoops held together by one marquise and one baguette diamond but they also open up to feature a look of circles in motion and as a third look to an elongated line of circles.

Walter Faith’s double wrap bracelet chain is inspired by antique watch chains with a distinctive contemporary vibe in 18K rose gold and diamonds. The double link looks fabulous on the wrist and looks equally stunning if the woman you are gifting has a small neck as it opens up to be a 15” choker length necklace.

KATKIM’s 18K white and gold Echo Ring features 18K gold is crafted from dual kinetic metals to offer the option of wearing the two bands stacked or interlocked. A sleek look that will go with anything and can be worn with rings on other fingers or can be layered with other rings on one finger

Kendra Pariseault’s Love One Another Pearl And Diamond Wrap Necklace in 14K yellow gold with fresh water pearls is designed to be worn  three ways—as a lariat, triple wrap necklace or thrown around the neck nonchalantly like a scarf. All three ways can dress up any outfit and can range in looks from more delicate as a lariat to more statement making as a scarf.
