Strengthen Your Bond With Necklaces For Mother And Son


There are many men and women who wear necklaces although it is probably women that wear them more often and have the better selection available to them. Most of the time they are worn as a fashion accessory, to compliment or add something that draws attention to an outfit or worn as one that is sentimental to the owner. A woman, man or child will wear them for differing reasons, a small boy for a connection to his mom, for a man it will be just to compliment an outfit and for a woman is again to enhance an outfit and will be worn more frequently but could also be to highlight the neckline and bring out the beauty around the jawline. There are also other reasons and they could be for religion, in some areas they show wealth and power and for many others they will be worn for sentimental reasons.

There are many different accessories, clothing and of course jewelry that have been especially produced to show the love between a mom and her boy, to create a link between the two or to offer special words  which could be inspiring. There are a few popular choices within this range for mom and son, one of which are bracelets and the other is necklaces.

Your son may have not yet reached the phase but if you have a toddler you are likely to see them suddenly become very attached to you and with this attachment comes a longing to touch, play with and generally hold anything you have or are wearing. This is just one of the many reasons you might want to introduce a matching set of an item for you and him and if you are keen on necklaces and so is he, then they could be a great thing to wear together. Having one each might just stop him wanting to grab yours and take it for himself and he will be really happy to be copying mommy and of course will look incredibly cute.

A matching pair will work at any age but are probably most suited to younger children and the designs tend to be for young boys or babies. Those that are produced for older children and adult sons will usually, but not always, individual pieces which have been engraved or will have an image on a pendant or charm. The engraved metal will often be an already designed and written message that will usually offer words of inspiration, courage, strength and love to suit various situations or you may have the option to have your own personalized message engraved onto a pendant. The necklaces given from son to mom will most likely be on an occasion such as Mother’s day and will usually be words of love, thanks and appreciation.

If it is a mommy either wanting to wear something coordinated with her little boy or trying to keep him happy then it will most likely me mommy who is buying them. For an older son, depending on who is giving/ receiving the necklace will be purchased by one or the other. This would most likely be the more normal but they could also be bought by close friends and family and given as a matching set to a mom as a gift for Mother’s day, birthday or Christmas especially when a child is too young to be buying gifts.

Necklaces For Son From Mother Or Son To Mom Are Forever Gifts



These necklaces that are for a mother and her son can be purchased as individual items or a matching set and this will depend upon what message the creator is trying to tell and the purpose for which you are buying it. To a passing stranger it will be a necklace like any other but for you there will be a deeper meaning attached to it that carries a message. This message will vary according to what the person giving it is wanting to say but it will generally be one that will tell them they are loved, offer words of inspiration and strength or to remind them they are always be connected through them when some distance apart.

There are certain gifts that seem to lighten up a persons face even more so than others and jewelry is among them. With one of the more popular pieces being a necklace you can rest assured that giving one or a set of these will mean they are going to be happily received. Because of the nature of the gift, being between a mom and her son, it will be treasured even more greatly and will become a gift that will be enjoyed forever. Aside from the varying designs, lengths and options when it comes to engraved messages they will also come in a variety of materials. The more popular among these will be:

  • Gold
  • White Gold
  • Rose Gold
  • Titanium
  • Platinum
  • Sterling Silver
  • Stainless Steel
  • Pearls
  • Beads
  • Leather
  • Plastic
  • Cord


You may find that manufacturers have found some ways of incorporating words and text into the actual chain of the necklace itself but most of the time the words will be engraved onto a pendant which is the additional ornamental part of the them. These can vary in shape, design and size and will be the focus point of it although often the terms will be interchangeable with the whole necklace itself. While some pendants are exquisite and intricate there are simple ones such as dog tags. Dog tags could be more suitable for certain men who may feel apprehensive about wearing a necklace as the dog tag part has the more macho feeling to it. There is also a good amount of space on a dog tag to fit a longer message on when compared to some of the pendants.

Looking through the options available you will see that you can buy a set of two that match in some way like being a split design that completes when both join together. As you both wear one each they can help you both feel connected when a long distance apart or if there are any anxiety issues wearing one each can help them feel like you are with them. Whereas you will notice there are also many individual pieces what are designed to be given from mother to son or vice versa. These individual varieties have the larger choice available and will have an individual message from one to the other, depending on what words are wanting to be said. The choice of message can be one that is inspirational, meaningful and loving but there are also items that will have words that are funny to bring about a laugh.

As we have now mentioned, there many different options available which is great in terms of many choices from which to find the perfect one for you but it can also be a disadvantage in that you may find you like too many and find it harder to pick out just one. One of the most important aspects will be what words are engraved on to the pendant and these are written to bring out differing emotions and only you will know what this needs to be.

Sentimental Personalized Chains Can Symbolize Your Bond Daily



Throughout your life there will be many special memories that you will treasure the most and many of those will be the time you spend with your child as they grow up. From the day they were born there are daily precious moments and even as they grow into an adult they will still be your little boy. Once they reach an older age the time you get to spend with them lessens as they are busy with their own friends, college, work and eventually family. The time when their mommy was their whole world flies by all too fast and before you know it, you only have those memories.

Those fleeting moments when their mommy is everything to them pass by in a heartbeat which makes it all the more important that they are not missed. Many people have their own busy schedules and try to balance their lives but all too often it is time with the children that is sacrificed. That missed time will no doubt leave the parents with many regrets in later years and although at the time it may seem like the right thing to do, nothing can turn back time and you only get to live the years your baby grows up once. If this sounds like you, then perhaps now is the moment to make some changes and being to dedicate more time to your little one. You could mark that moment with a promise and have an item that represents a new beginning and a bracelet or set of two could be a great choice.

There are of course many moms who enjoy every stage of their baby boys growth and are on hand to witness every little achievement and major milestones. It during this time you may enjoy a matching necklace together or give one to him as a gift for starting school or offering words of courage. Eventually he will grow into an adult and at this time they also make a wonderful gift for starting college, moving into a new home, getting engaged or married.

Most of the time a gift such as this will be given for one of the various celebrations that occur during the year and that is true for whoever is giving or receiving. They are there to act as a symbol and are an item that can be worn daily to feel connected to each other and serve as a reminder of your bond. They could symbolize any day or event that you both take part in or perhaps a vacation whose memories you want to preserve and act as a reminder of a wonderful time together. Any moment you chose to commemorate with any object makes that item incredibly sentimental and it is at these times it is a good idea to personalize it.
