DH and I just had our first LO a couple of months ago, and I’m looking into getting a mother’s ring. I posted on my mommy site, but it’s hard to get feedback on anything other than the color of your baby’s poop, ha!
I really love the idea of a custom engraved band, but it seems too plain to me. I thought of getting a birthstone ring to stack with it, and maybe a textured spacer ring or two in case the stone causes a gap. What do you ladies think? Will that be too much, or do you have any other ideas for me?

squigglybaby: I think a band would be more practical than a stone. A RHR with your LO’s birthstone would be cute though. I love the bezel setting.

I adore the first picture that has the baby’s name and birthday! How sweet!!

squigglybaby: I don’t have a ring since I only like to wear my wedding set now, but I have a bracelet that says K+L=S (our daughter’s initial) and a necklace that says K&L and S it’s key to our heart necklace so it has the key, her name on a tag, and our initials on the heart. But for awhile I did wear a bracelet that had her name and birthday, but I felt more comfortable with just her name.

squigglybaby: I think the first ring is adorable and is statement enough, although perhaps if you wanted it to stand out a bit you could see if a jewler could maybe put a birthstone on it. I got a ring from Zales. Very petite, stackable ring, so eventually I can get them all put together. It has my son’s name, birthstone in the middle, and his birthdate on the other side.

Bump for opinions!
Would both rings together look bad?

squigglybaby: I have a band with my daughter’s name engraved on the outside, her birthdate on the inside + a little sentiment.
I often wear it with other rings: sometimes with a wire-wrap set sapphire (her birthstone), sometimes with a ring she gave me for Mother’s Day, sometimes with my original wedding band, etc. I also like to wear it alone. That’s the nice thing about a band: it can go with different things or also look fabulous by itself.
I love all the pictures you posted. I think any of them would look really great together.
