Sustainable Jewellery Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a perfect occasion to celebrate the special women in our lives – whether it’s your own mother or grandmother, yourself (whether you’re a mother or not) or another woman you cherish: as women, we nurture ourselves, our communities and each other like Mother Earth nurtures us, and our femininity deserves to be honoured and celebrated. This is true for every day, we believe, yet Mother’s Day is an extra special moment to articulate your love for the women in your life (including yourself!). To make sure we pay respect to Mother Earth on Mother’s Day as well, we would love to offer you some sustainable and ethical gift inspiration for this occasion. In this blog, we’ll dive into a curated selection of sustainable jewellery gift ideas that embody craftsmanship, style, and conscious consumerism, ensuring that your Mother’s Day gift not only brings joy but also makes a positive impact on the planet.

Timeless jewellery: give a meaningful gift that lasts

Jewellery is the perfect Mother’s Day gift – adorning yourself with jewellery pieces you love is an act of self-care, and it’s so special to be able to give this gift to someone you hold dear. Furthermore, jewellery can hold symbolic value, adding a deeper layer of meaning to your gift. What makes a jewellery gift even more special, is if it’s intentionally and consciously made, with respect for all that lives around us, aligned with the nourishing characteristics of feminine energy. Julia Otilia’s jewellery collection, as well as this gift guide, consists of sustainable jewellery pieces only, which will stand the test of time and will be able to accompany its receiver(s) for years, or even generations, to come.


Made in solid gold, our Tiny Heart stud earrings make both a luxurious and sustainable gift for Mother’s Day. And, what symbol says ‘I love you’ better than a dainty heart? Each time she’ll wear this beautiful set of stud earrings, your mom will be reminded of your love for her. And she’ll be able to wear them for years and years to come, because these timeless, high-quality earrings will last her a lifetime. If you want to go all out, pair the heart-shaped studs with our Tiny Heart necklace for a matching set that radiates love like nothing else.


For centuries, pearls have been associated with femininity and gracefulness. Our Pure Pearl necklace made with a natural soft pink coloured sweet water pearl is a classic piece that adds a sense of sophistication to any outfit. This versatile, refined necklace is perfect for both everyday wear and more elegant occasions, making it a timeless gift for your mother, yourself or another woman you love. Pair it with our Pearl Hook earrings or Pearl Creole earrings for a dreamy matching set.


Lavender symbolizes devotion, serenity, calmness and grace – all characteristics you may associate with a mother. Because this flower has such a peaceful connotation, giving your mother this beautiful Lavender amulet necklace is like saying: you deserve to take time for yourself, to slow down, to take care of yourself and fill up your own cup. The pendant of this feminine necklace is engraved by hand, making it an extra special Mother’s Day gift.


These special Ebb Tide earrings are like a celebration of the feminine. Water is an element that is essential to creating and sustaining life, and thus it has long been associated with the maternal and nurturing facets of femininity. The ocean has a sense of both mystery and calmness to it at the same time, and these bold earrings will help their wearer embody that same empowering energy.


These Swirling Wind earrings were inspired by the graceful, gentle movements of wind. With their playful and feminine design, they are the ideal gift for a confident woman who isn’t afraid to own who she is (or who would like to feel this way!). Made of high-quality materials, these precious dangling earrings make an incredibly precious gift to be enjoyed for years and years to come, that will make its receiver feel radiant every time she wears them.
