It might have all started with the “Carrie” necklace from Sex and the City, but since a few seasons back, personalized jewelry has become one of the most desirable purchases – and designer Jennifer Zeuner is one of the names to thank for that! She continues to update her charm, nameplate and “I Love You” 18-karat gold-plated necklaces and encourages jewelry layering, because as you know, more is more. And because her designs are perfect for all modern moms out there, we asked Zeuner about her plans for gifting and what she would like to receive for Mother’s Day. A little inspiration cannot hurt, plus we love that the designer’s list includes all mothers within her team and family.
What your idea of the best Mother’s Day gift? Let us know in the comments below.
Trois-Jour Grande Leather Tote Bag
When I was very young, I always thought my mother carried Fendi bags because the Fs stood for Fortuna, her name. I remember the day I found out that the Fs really stood for Fendi. My mother loves anything modern, and this colorblock Fendi bag is the ultimate modern carryall.
Chicago U-Center One-Piece Swimsuit
My niece, Michelle, just had a baby boy, and this blue-toned swimsuit is a great motivator to get back into shape. It’s also a reminder of her great-grandmother's Emilio Pucci obsession.
Leather Espadrille Wedge Sandal
My sister is a mother of three daughters and she’s always on the go. She loves to wear wedges for comfort, and these look especially fresh and modern in cognac-tone leather.
Large Flora Zip-Top Cosmetic Bag
Gucci's “Flora” collection has always reminded me of my oldest sister, Flora. I could see her carrying this beautiful cosmetic bag as a clutch!
Classic Continental Zip Wallet
From my husband and four children: I often lose my wallet in my large handbags. This bright yellow Balenciaga wallet would definitely prevent a few panic attacks!
Long Mini Flower Necklace
My mother-in-law, Doris, has always been a great supporter and fan of my collection. This flower necklace has a longer shelf life than real flowers!
"Elle" Lacquer Jewelry Box
Since I’ve known my publicist, Yael, she has amassed an extremely diverse collection of jewelry. She has more "evil eye" protection jewelry than anyone else I know! Her latest acquisition, Dior pearl earrings, would love to call this modern jewelry box home.
Mini Borsa Leather Crossbody Bag
Sari, our director of sales, is a practical mom on the go! She often has work appointments in New York City with buyers, and on the weekends she loves to take her kids out to lunch. She already has many crossbody bags, but she definitely needs one in this season's "it" color: pale pink.
Almond Coconut Milk Scrub
Gift to myself: I love body scrubs, and the scent of this one reminds me of Puerto Rico, where I grew up.
Big Book of Chic
My cousin, Miriam, is an image consultant, and she happens to have the most chic apartment in New York City. She would definitely love this book, and she would display it on her coffee table!
