Birth is one of the most intimate events in one’s life. After nine months of patience and waiting, a family receives the most beautiful gift one can imagine. Yet this gift requires blood, sweat and tears. To show appreciation for the enormous effort of their other half, to commemorate and cherish the birth and to symbolize this event, we notice more men are making the decision to invest in push present jewelry. In the United Kingdom alone, no less than 40% of all women are gifted a piece of jewelry when giving birth to a son or daughter. And in the Netherlands as well, fathers-to-be are treating their spouses with birth gold and mom jewelry.
What is birth gold or so-called push present jewelry?
Does the concept of birth jewelry not immediately ring a bell to you? It is a well-established tradition, yet it was recently boosted due to celebrities surprising their spouses with birth jewelry. While it was seen as a personal family tradition in the past, offering partner, parents-in-law, brothers and sisters the opportunity to buy a gift for the fresh mom, it now is a tradition privileged to men. Jewelry businesses notice an increase in the amount of fathers looking for an appropriate ‘thank you’ gift, symbolizing the pregnancy and prosperous delivery. By doing so, birth jewelry is a symbolic memory of a remarkable postnatal period.
More than birth gold
Contrary to what the word ‘birth gold’ states, it doesn’t necessary mean birth jewelry needs to be made out of gold. Other materials could also provide a piece unique. Even with gold as a more sustainable choice, birth jewelry can be made out of silver as well. Not a big fan of yellow gold? That leaves you with white gold, champaign or rose gold birth jewelry options.
To make birth jewelry stand even more out in the crowd, choose a minimalist birth jewelry piece which you can personalize with a symbol representing the newborn baby. You can engrave the name, initials or even the date of birth of the baby in a mom necklace or ring, or you can engrave the heart beat of the baby – based on an ultrasound – in a hanger or medallion. Or opt for a print of a hand or feet of the little baby. Do you want to take an even more original approach? Give your wife a small diamond which can be incorporated into her wedding ring as a symbol of your growing family.
