    My mother and grandmother both have pendants like these.  You can get them customized to the correct number of people in your family (my mom has 2 adults and 2 children in hers, grandma’s has 2 adults and 3 children).  They both like them and I think they’re a lot more modern than the traditional family birthstone rings.

    I always loved my mom’s ring, and in fact wore it for quite a while after she passed away. 

    @cb336:  I love these – what a neat twist to the idea!

    We purchased my grandmother a ring a few years ago and I really love how it turned out. It didn’t hurt that the grandchildren’s birthstones went well together. I think it can turn south quickly when you get strange colors (thanks to again the birthstones) that don’t look good together.

    I do like the idea though and it has a lot of meaning behind it.

    @cb336:  Those are so cool! I may do that for my mom/grandmas! Where did you get them?

    I’ve really never seen one I thought looked nice, and I know they wouldn’t be my own mother’s style, personally. I guess part of it depends on how many kids there are and what the birth stones are – I think for me, I would never wear a ring with like 3 or 4 totally different colour stones, so I wouldn’t like it.

    Pendants are maybe a bit better, but not the ones that says ‘mom’ or ‘mother’ on them. My mama (who is about your mother’s age) thinks they’re awful, partly because they’re usually kind of ugly, and she also doesn’t really like being reduced to this one facet of who she is.

    (As a mother myself, I would really never want one, but would graciously accept it if my child wanted to give me one).

    @Lalk2bee:  We got them from a small local esthetics/accessories shop in our hometown, so I’m not sure what brand they are.  If you Google “Mother’s Family Pendant” you should be able to find some options.

    Here’s one site I found:

    and I believe some results come up on Amazon as well.

    I am not a fan of the way they tend to look, however it melts my heart when I see my mom wearing them!  Even if they aren’t the “prettiest” (I’m sure you can find something pretty), they are a sweet sentiment.

    My sister and I were talking just last night about getting our Mom a mothers ring for Christmas. I love the look of these stacked rings, especially the one with the flower. I think we’ve decided on the flower one, with CZ for my sister and either blue topaz or sapphire for me.

    These two are from the etsy seller here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/sherisdesigns?ref=seller_info

    I to love the stacked rings i bought my set 2 months ago as i didnt like the look of a ring with 3 different stone colours all on one ring like the usual mom rings are.  I like having a ring for each. My Fiance happen to have the same month so it worked out well. I bought them from etsy.

    @lulu_honey:  I wouldn’t want a mother’s ring. I would prefer a mother’s bracelet with some charms like these…

    I don’t like any jewelery that says mom or is too colorful with a bunch of different birthstones.. that’s just me though. For me a ring would be only emerald and diamond which are my children’s birthstone so it wouldn’t be that bad….

    @JustLove25:  Funny how styles change. My great grandmother was given a bracelet with nearly identical charms, engraved with her grandchildren’s names and birth years. She hated it.
