Design a Customized Pendant Necklace for Mother’s Day

Moms are always there with the best advice, endless support, and the guidance you need. There's truly nothing your mom wouldn't do for you. Their infinite love should be celebrated, and Mother's Day is a great chance to give back to the woman who's given you so much. Furthermore, offering her a heartfelt, customized pendant necklace will show her how grateful you are. 

A custom necklace from Customcuff is designed to inspire and strengthen the loving bonds between parent and child. These necklaces tell a story and are truly authentic presents. Honor your connection with a custom accessory that celebrates your most cherished memories together.  

From a custom name necklace to a nameplate necklace to a Cuban link dog tag pendant, there are plenty of options! The trick is designing the necklace with the loving intention to really blow your mom away. In this article, we'll discuss all the best tips for crafting a necklace she'll adore forever. 

How To Design the Perfect Customized Pendant Necklace

The official Mother's Day holiday started back in 1914, making this lovely celebration over a century old! With such a lauded history, there have been lots of Mother's Day gifts over the years. 

This day calls for presents just as caring as a Valentine’s Day gift or a lovely birthday gift. The regular flowers, white gold locket bracelet, and custom photo are nice, but a custom monogram necklace, name pendant, or other accessory from your favorite jeweler will really wow her. We'll help you design an exceptional gift this Mother's Day. 

Follow these tips for an engraved necklace you'll be excited to gift. 

1. Get Inspired


The first step is getting those creative juices flowing. However, this is more than your basic heart necklace or photo pendant on a tennis chain. There are plenty of different styles and base designs to choose from. First, think about your mother's ideal pendant design.

Is she an understated, elegant lady? Maybe the classic Custom Plate Necklace with the Cuban chain would fit her cool aura. Does she bring the fun and have a zeal for life? Perhaps a funkier design like the Handwriting Coin Necklace would match her spunky nature. 

A good tip here is to think back on her favorite pieces and attempt to match their style. If you can't remember, it's time to get sneaky and raid her jewelry box. Does she already own birthstone or gemstone pieces? Does she usually rock a heart pendant or photo necklace? Think about what would pair best with her existing style!

Form an idea for the pendant style, then start imagining the ideal engraving. At Customcuff, we have plenty of unique engraving options, including: 

  • Dates – think important life moments
  • Morse Code – think secret messages 
  • Coordinates – think special locations
  • Text – think name jewelry or an initial letter pendant

2. Decide on a Metal 

Now, this is an extremely vital step. Some moms don't care about metal color, or they adore mixing and matching, but some only wear a certain shade. The key is remembering your mom's most commonly worn metal color. Is she a solid gold or white gold person? Maybe she prefers dark jewelry to a light silver look.

If you're having trouble remembering or she doesn't wear jewelry often, you have two choices: 

  1. Rummage through her jewelry box 
  2. Ask a relative or close friend for insight 

Your mom's partner, sibling, or best friend may know exactly what she wears and be able to point you in the right direction. Luckily, there are plenty of stunning metal color choices available at Customcuff. Select between gorgeous rose gold, glowing sterling silver, or beautiful yellow gold-plated necklaces. 

3. Pick Your Pendant 


Before you can truly design the piece, you'll need to land on the perfect pendant. At Customcuff, we have a variety of necklace styles and options. Here are some of our most popular best-sellers:

There are more options to pursue on the Customcuff site. Just keep your mom's preferences and style in mind. Plus, consider the option of adding a gorgeous engraved charm to your selected custom-made pendant necklace!  

4. Create Your Custom Design 

We mentioned our range of engraving options earlier. Now let's pick and settle on a design for your personalized jewelry.  

  • The intimate option – Morse Code is a special way to engrave a short message or secret saying that she'll always hold dear.
  • The chic option – Coordinate engravings point to any place on Earth that holds emotional meaning for your mom. 
  • The classic option – Initial necklaces, short phrases, and name necklaces are all great options to signify your love and affection. 
  • The innovative option – Handwriting engravings, such as your own cursive, are simple and powerful designs guaranteed to touch her heart. 

Creating a custom design can be overwhelming, but remember to design with your mother's joy in mind, and you'll be sure to land on the perfect engraving style. 

5. Place Your Order!

Keep Your Customized Pendant Necklace Beautiful
