Every reason is good reason to buy a diamond ring for your loved one, whether to celebrate an engagement, as a gift for her birthday or to surprise her for Mother's Day. Mothers deserve all our attention. In the past, it was customary for the man to buy a diamond ring for the birth of the first child. Today still, men surprise the mother of their new-born child with a piece of diamond jewellery that fits her style and taste, and that will forever remind her of that beautiful moment.
Where does the tradition come from?
In Great Britain, it has been a trend for years to pamper the mother of your new-born child with gifts. So why not a diamond ring? In Belgium and the Netherlands, this tradition is more dependent on social class. In some well-off families, it is traditional to buy a diamond ring for the first daughter who gives birth to a child.
What design should I choose for such a gift?
In terms of options, you can let your imagination run free. You can buy a ring with a blue diamond or a sapphire for the birth of boy. For a girl, you could choose a pink diamond.
Of course, you should not limit yourself to the diamond to make the ring special and personal. You can also modify the ring itself. Have the name of your child and date of birth engraved on the inside of the ring. This way, your wife will have a lasting memory of one of the most beautiful days in her life.
What if I want to buy a ring with extra meaning?
If you think that an engraving is not enough for your loved one, you can always go for a more exclusive piece of jewellery with a unique meaning. For example, consider jewellery from the Monarca collection. This beautiful jewellery line is based on the elegance of the monarch butterfly. This beautiful, majestic butterfly migrates every year from the North of the American continent to the deep South. The emergence of a butterfly symbolizes a new life.
Or perhaps you favour the Licio collection, designed by Elisa Schepens? For this collection, she drew her inspiration from nature. The jewellery pieces represent fragile fruits that are enveloped by a protective pod. The comparison with your new-born child is easily made.
