Helzberg Diamonds Mother's Day Pendant {Review & Giveaway}

Helzberg Diamonds logo

I am a firm believer that until a person has children of their own, they simply cannot fully understand the enormity of parenthood.

Sure, you can read books and you can babysit and you can immerse yourself in all things baby; until you look down at your baby in your arms and know, without a doubt, that you will spend the rest of your life loving them beyond all measure, there's just no comparison.

Does that make the sleepless nights, crying and future sassy back-talk any easier? Not really.

Which is why when Mother's Day rolls around each year and you realize everything that your own mother put up with while raising you, it is extra important to express your gratitude and love for her. And what better way to show Mom that you appreciate everything she has done than with a little sparkle from Helzberg Diamonds?

Mother's Day gifts

Since 1915, Helzberg Diamonds has been committed to providing their customers with unparalleled customer service, industry expertise and custom jewelry that makes that special someone say, "I Am Loved." Offering jewelry of every variety — rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and watches, just to name a few — Helzberg Diamonds has the design and style that will match your recipient's personality while staying within your budget.

With Mother's Day right around the corner, this year Helzberg Diamonds has the perfect way to help you show your mom, grandmother, sister, aunt or your best friend that she is loved and appreciated for everything she does: the Mother's Day Sterling Silver and Diamond Pendant.

Mother's Day diamond pendant

Featuring a sterling silver double heart with MOM prominently displayed, this sterling silver diamond pendant is just thing to act as a token of your love and appreciation for Mom not only on Mother's Day, but every day after.

When a small box from Helzberg Diamonds arrived, I was ready to see the beauty of this classic piece in person.

Helzberg Diamonds box

Even more sparkly and beautiful than in pictures, this MOM Heart Pendant glistens with round diamonds weighing a total of approximately 1/20 carat. Each one is eye-catching and clear and give just the right amount of bling to the clean lines and simple design of the pendant.

Mother's Day necklace

As this pendant comes complete with a delicate sterling silver 18" rope chain, there isn't anything else that Mom needs to do to add this to her wardrobe and be reminded of the love and affection from her family!

Mother's Day gifts

Thinking that a diamond necklace isn't something that you can afford this year?

My mother is very giving with her time. She is 64 yrs old, still volunteers 30 hours a week at a local church. Back in the fall I was in the hospital for 6 weeks and she spent 10 hours a day, 7 days a week at the hospital and still kept up with her volunteering duties. She is the BEST mom a daughter could ever have.

Unfortunately..not everyone had a great Mom. I love my mother, but we have never been close. Her religion always came first. The quality I admired most? She always kept the house clean. I wish I could say she did it cheerfully, but, I cannot. I felt more like a burden than a blessing. The only thing that makes my Mother's Day happy..is my 3 grown children love me with all their hearts. I love them so much, they gave me a reason to live.
