5 Unique Mother’s Day Gifts

Posted by Clare Izaguirre on

Psst, it's Mother's Day on the 10th of March this year...and we know that choosing the right gift can be a bit of a challenge.

It’s hard to find something sentimental, meaningful, affordable and long-lasting. In short, something as unique as your Mum.

Well, here at Aquila, this is what we do best. Beautiful handmade jewellery crafted with care that you won’t find anywhere else. We believe that gifting jewellery ticks all the boxes.

So, here are our five best Mother’s Day gift suggestions…you’re welcome!

Just before we start, did you know that every piece from our range is made from recycled metals? That means no ecosystems or animals and their homes are destroyed to mine the metals.

We also use strictly hypoallergenic metals, so if your Mum has sensitive skin, our jewellery isn’t an irritant for her.

1. Banda creole hoops

Does your Mum love understated gold earrings?

These half-crescent 14ct gold vermeil hoops with a 925 sterling base metal are one of the best Mother's Day gifts because their subtle design makes them appealing to most tastes. 

Timeless and unique, their size makes them ideal for everyday wear as well as special occasions.

Their design was inspired by Banda, a small island in Uganda whose inhabitants live a modest, simple and yet enriched life. It’s a beautiful and humble story for an understated pair of earrings. 

Perfect for Mother’s Day, these hoops are available in silver.

2. Ubud silver detailed pendant

Does your Mum love ornate silver necklaces?

This pendant is so incredibly detailed with its intricately carved design. Our artisans spend countless hours crafting each pendant using age-old techniques and hand-held tools to create intricate designs that honour their ancestors' legacy of silversmithing.

Every necklace is made from quality 925 sterling silver and has taken its design from a hand-carved decoration found in Ubud, Bali. 

The pendant comes with a Boston link chain that is both adjustable and comfortable to wear.

3. Mandalay silver & gold ring

Does your Mum love statement rings?

If the answer is yes, then look no further!

Made from quality 925 sterling silver and 18ct solid gold, this mixed metal boho ring displays the raw beauty of both metals side by side.

The intricate dot work on the ring is a tribute to the spiritual significance of the circle, known as the 'Mandala'. It is a symbol of connection and harmony with the cosmos. 

It is also synonymous with the royal history and divine energy of the stunning Mandalay in Myanmar.

What a beautiful ode to the physical and spiritual world around us for Mother’s Day.

4. Palawan mixed metal Indonesian claw bracelet

Does your Mum’s eyes light up at the sight of a boho bracelet?

If the answer is yes, then she has impeccable taste— us too!

This bracelet is jewellery gifting at its finest. 

This piece is crafted by hand using 925 sterling silver & 14ct gold vermeil. Its hinge claw shape means it's adjustable to fit a variety of wrist shapes, and its unique design means you won’t see it on the high street (anywhere).

It’s one of those pieces that people stop and ask you where you got it from.

Inspired by the diverse landscapes of Palawan island in the Philippines, this bracelet captures the contrasting and powerful beauty of nature living side by side. What a meaningful way to connect to the world around us, don’t you think?

We find it’s a popular gift for Mums during all seasons and one of the most Unique Mother's Day Gifts you’ll find.

5. Agonda solid 9ct gold ring

Does your Mum love no-fuss jewellery she doesn’t need to take off?

If so, meet the solid 9ct gold Agonda ring

Its hand-hammered texture has been inspired by the sun-kissed beach of Agonda in Goa, where its well-trodden golden sands rise and fall. 

Each ring has been carefully crafted by our artisans using hand-held tools and age-old techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.

How the ring is worn is up to the wearer! It can be used as a stacking ring or a stand-alone piece. We love it as both.

Give your mom a piece of beach serenity with the Agonda ring.
