From Fine Watches to Diamond Studs, Roman Jewelers Has the Mother’s Day Gift with Meaning (May 14, 2006 Flemington, NJ) Bouquets, brunch, a basket of spa products, a box of chocolates or tickets to a Broadway show? They are all sweet suggestions, but this Mother’s Day, you could also give the mother in your life the gift that she really wants and greatly deserves, but may never expect to receive – fine jewelry. If you want to show how much you care about her and appreciate her, give her this unexpected gift that makes her feel beautiful and pampered – something that she is too unselfish to request. In a survey done by the Jewelry Consumer Opinion Council before Mother’s Day 2005, mothers put jewelry as one of their top two wishes as a gift for Mother’s Day. Yet 42% of the gift-givers from the same survey group stated that they had no idea what to buy for the moms in their lives. There seems to be a failure to communicate. The National Retail Federation also surveyed 2,497 consumers before Mother’s Day 2005. Prospective gift purchasers who are also moms ranked jewelry high on the list of gifts they were hoping to receive for Mother’s Day. In study after study, for all of the major gift-giving holidays throughout the year, women continue to rank jewelry as a gift they long for but do not usually receive. In a recent Internet blog, a husband wrote about how much he looks forward to surprising his wife on Mother’s Day with something wonderful that he knows she secretly admires, and how much he will enjoy the delighted look on her face when she receives the gift. Another man on the Web is searching for a unique gift that will be a permanent reminder of his deep appreciation for all that his mother has done for him. A fine watch, diamond ear studs, a ring with a rare piece of violet-blue Tanzanite, a beautifully designed bracelet or necklace – Roman Jewelers can provide pieces like these from many of the world’s most renowned jewelers and watchmakers. And some jewelry can be made even more sentimental just by using a monogram, an engraved message or a special birthstone that any mother will cherish forever and pass along as an heirloom. IN APPRECIATION OF ALL WOMEN Mother’s Day has now developed into a holiday to remember all of the important women in your life, states Sophie Shor of Roman Jewelers in Flemington. “Of course we always honor our mothers, but this holiday is also a day to remember wonderful mothers-in-law, grandmothers and daughters, as well as an aunt or close friend who has influenced your life,” she notes. The pre-Mother’s Day 2006 survey by the National Retail Federation (involving 7,865 consumers) showed that, in addition to their mothers, significant numbers of men plan to buy gifts for their wives, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, friends and/or other relatives this Mother’s Day. Roman Jewelers carries jewelry that will fulfill the dreams of every mother in pearl, diamond, all types of precious stones, gold, platinum and silver styles. And the Flemington store carries the finest Swiss watches from the very top manufacturers.
