It is such a joyous occasion when a baby is born! Many spouses, family, and friends want to commemorate the birth with a gift for the mother. Jewelry is a perfect gift to celebrate the arrival of a new life! Today we are sharing some new mom jewelry gift ideas to help you choose a touching and beautiful present for that special new mom!
A “push present” is a gift given to a new mother traditionally from their spouse to celebrate the act of childbirth. Jewelry is the most common push present because it can be worn daily, treasured for a lifetime, and even passed down to children when they grow older. Don’t panic if this is the first time you are learning about push presents! The tradition took hold around the 1990s. While it is not required, giving your wife a special gift after birth can encourage her, commemorate the special occasion, and help her know she is loved dearly.
Personalize New Mom Jewelry with Birthstones, Initials, or Engraving
Since the 16th century, people have been celebrating the month of someone’s birth with jewelry and a specific birthstone gem. New mom jewelry gifts could include pendants, earrings, rings, or bracelets with the birthstone of the mom, the new baby, or a combination of both.

Initial Pendant Necklaces
A pendant necklace showing off the initials of the new baby’s name is a great way to celebrate! Mom can wear it close to her heart and still be in style. Initial pendants come in a variety of metals and can be on shorter daintier chains or make a statement with a chunkier medallion-style initial. You can choose to include just the baby’s initials or include both baby, mom, and dad’s to signify the family unit.
Engraving initials, names, and/or birthdates can personalize any jewelry for a new mom. All metals can be engraved so you have many options. You could choose a beautiful ring with a special engraved message on the inside or choose a medallion or locket and have the back engraved to be worn as a necklace. Watches and bracelets can also be engraved. A tennis bracelet showing off the birthstone with a special engraved message would be a touching new mom gift treasured for a lifetime!
Gemstone Rings as New Mom Jewelry Gifts
Rings are a popular push present. They range in style from classic and minimal to bold and beautiful! Many choose to incorporate birthstones in rings for new moms but you do not have to. Celebrate the new mother with a gemstone ring that she may not already have or add to her collection with a different cut gemstone that she does not own.

You can choose a vintage-style ring, a bold gemstone color, or a simple stone with an eclectic style setting! The point of a right-hand ring is to bring joy to the wearer.
Ring wraps are another great option for new mom jewelry. Ring wraps are rings meant to be paired with a wedding ring or other larger gemstone ring that will enhance or update the style.
