Mama Luv!

Mother's Day has always been a special holiday for me. As a mother of three and one of four sisters, I have spent years looking back at the magnificence of my mother, while trying desperately to channel her strength, beauty and class as I raise my boys. 

Mother's Day Favorites from Betty Badd Couture

Speaking as a mother and a daughter, I know how meaningful it is to have a 'special day.' While every day should be Mother's Day, having an official day of gratitude and pampering certainly has its value! 

As I have often said in the past, jewelry can be a special way of documenting emotions and occasions and Mother's Day is no exception. I've pulled together a few of my favorite Mother's Day looks for to review, but don't forget - we're offering a special 15% Mother's Day discount off EVERYTHING, not just these items!

When it comes to gifts for mom, pearls are always a favorite of mine. I think they are the most elegant representation of the grace that a great mother possesses. One of my favorites is the Antonia Single Strand Pearl Choker. In this glamorous piece, genuine pearls are hand-knotted and coupled with sparkling Swarovski crystal rondells. It's a fabulous way to add drama to an outfit without going over the top. 

Another favorite for Mother's Day is the Antonia Vermeil Shell Pendant Necklace. A lightweight delicate chain is made from single freshwater pearls, each hand-wrapped with gold-filled wire. Hanging at the bottom is a simple sea shell, reminiscent of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty. Each shell is slightly different, but can be worn showing either the creamy white inside or the rosy-colored outside. 

Speaking of rosy colors, I think rose quartz is always a great idea for mothers. Rose quartz is known for healing energy and magical properties. Personally, I adore the way it balances with every skin tone I've ever seen it on. There's something in the way it brings light to the face that I think makes it exceptional for mom! My Antonia Rose Quartz Necklace/Belt takes faceted pieces of rose quartz and pairs them with pearls, quartz crystal and chain. It can be worn so many ways making it incredibly versatile. When worn long, the slimming qualities are valued by all women, especially those with gifted 'assets' - but it also doubles up for a more robust look. 

But there's more than necklaces when it comes to great Mother's Day Gifts! I am a huge fan of anklets. I think besides being fun and flirty, they offer the wearer a little something special for warmer months. My Estrella Silver Pyrite Druzy Anklet strings faceted pyrite beads with magnificent druzy quartz accent. Also available in a companion piece with gold pyrite, each is hand-knotted and unique. It's an exceptional way to show your mother how much her personal sparkle means to you!


Whatever you choose, take the time this Mother's Day (and every day!) to show some MAMALUV! 

Style, Betty Badd Couture

Antonia Series of the 2014 Spring Collection

Antonia Series of Betty Badd 2014 Spring Collection

Named after my grandmother, The Antonia Collection embodies quiet elegance yet functionality.  It is a mix of the most beautiful hand-picked rock crystal, rose quartz crystal and genuine pearl.  These pieces create such a statement because they reflect light around the face capturing youth-like appearance.

The Antonia collection is the most versatile of all.  It is the type of jewelry you can wear anytime time of the day or night.  From a single strand of pearls to my favorite 52" Rock-Crystal Point necklace,  it exudes femininity.  It’s subtle nuances shimmer capturing the most beautiful light.  Each piece is bedecked with dazzling Swarovski crystals keeping it edgy yet always elegant.

One of my signature pieces, the anklet comes in every stone pattern in this collection.  Anklets create a bold statement taking us back to Egyptian Times where every part of the body was adorned in semi-precious stones.

 The Antonia Collection is also magical.  Each individual piece contains the healing properties attributed to quartz crystal. The gem calms and soothes a tensed mind making it stress free.  The gem has the ability to draw out the negativity inside thereby filling one with positive energies.  The gem is believed to be stabilizing to the aura.  This helps in clear, pragmatic and creative thinking.  These gems have metaphysical aids that help the wearer to amplify all the positive energy.  The gem has a healing property and helps a lot in meditation too.  The gem also works on imbalances in the wearer's body, keeping you fit, and fine and vitalized every time. 

 Prepare to be transported into the mystery of time.
