ONE HUMAN BEING ABOVE all deserves the best: Mother. A mother’s season of celebration should be 365-24/7. No token can compete with the love, support and affection of women who cherish and bear the torch of motherhood, but we come pretty darn close with our spoils. Make Mom sparkle, shimmer and glow with a gift from our medley of luxury staples this Mother’s Day.
Dazzle your mother on a day designed uniquely for her. The Audemars Piguet Millenary Hand-Wound is the ultimate Mother’s Day spoil. Its 18-carat pink gold casing paired with a shimmering alligator band exudes exquisite craftsmanship. The 116 brilliant-cut diamonds will surely provide the sparkle so befitting a matriarch. $28,400.
Dynamite comes in small packages. Mercedes Brunelli takes embellishment to a new level. Champagne Bubble is the title of this clutch gem, so let the festivities begin. Happy Mother’s Day. $595.
