Shopping for the mom who seems to have everything? Earrings such as hoops, studs, or dangle designs can help her add a touch of style to any outfit. If you’re buying earrings as a Mother’s Day gift, make sure that you’re choosing a pair she’s sure to love by selecting a set in a metal color she already enjoys wearing. For example, if she already has a lot of jewelry in rose gold, choose earrings in a similar hue such as this pair of rose gold huggies.

When buying earrings for Mother’s Day, make sure that the mom you’re celebrating has pierced ears. If she has young children, shorter designs such as studs or huggies may be the best fit this year so that she can wear the earrings without worrying about tugging.
