Some of the hottest colors for spring are the warm tones of pink, orange and yellow. Choose a stylish ring set with a bold colored gemstone, dramatic dangling earrings with faceted briolettes or an elegant pendant she can string on her favorite chain. The most popular gemstones? Start with the luscious pinks of tourmaline, sapphire and rhodolite garnet or go for the palest tints of color with kunzite, morganite and rose quartz.

If orange is her passion, consider Mexican fire opal, Mandarin garnet, cognac citrine or any shade in the rich range of amber. For the sunniest yellow gems, choose citrine, yellow sapphire or a canary diamond. Come and preview our latest collections of colored gemstone jewelry and know that your taste and budget will be satisfied; each is available in a wide range of cuts, sizes and prices.

If she prefers the subtlety of traditional gemstones, look for the delicate pastels of aquamarine, blue topaz or peridot. Some very spring-like looks are created by combining these soft pastels with citrine or pink tourmaline. For deeper hues, look for jewelry with sapphires, tanzanite, iolite, amethyst, green tourmaline or emerald. Each can look fabulous with the romantic prints, floral patterns, chiffons and laces of spring.

Can't decide which color is the best? Look for a stunning rainbow design that combines several types of stones. Rainbow designs are available in line bracelets, band rings, hoop earrings and elegant pendants. For the ultimate Mother's Day tribute, buy her a specially designed necklace or Mother's Ring, with each charm or stone representing a child's birth.

If you want to go a different route to color, look for jewelry with colored enamel accents. That trend is especially hot right now and you can choose an item that perfectly reflects her style. For example, is she traditional in her taste? If so, nothing says spring like an elegant butterfly or flower brooch decorated with multicolored enamel.

Does she follow the world of fashion? Sports? Here too, the choice is vast, from tiny whimsical charms with colorful details to bold pendants and bangle bracelets in rainbows of fashion colors accented with diamonds.

Make this Mother's Day a colorful celebration - and give your Mom a treasured keepsake.
