Do you know someone who is expecting soon, or has recently given birth?
Consider a Push Present.
The popularity of the push present has soared recently. So what exactly is it?
Wikipedia defines “push present” as a gift a partner gives to the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child. In practice the present may be given before or after the birth, or even in the delivery room.
A recent survey of over 30,000 respondents by BabyCenter found that 38% of new mothers received a push present, and 55% of pregnant mothers wanted one, though fewer thought it was actually expected. About 40% of both groups said the baby itself was already a present and did not wish an additional reward.
It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the new mom.
Some ideas for push gifts include jewelry with the gemstone of the month the baby is due, a gold, silver or platinum disk with names, initials or birthstone. A delicate diamond pendant, pearl necklace or earrings.
The trend has generated a backlash, as some couples dislike the implicit materialism of push presents, and would prefer increased help in chores or baby care, or save the money for the child’s education. Anyway you decide to help the new mom, she deserves some extra love and attention.
According to etiquette expert Pamela Holland, there are no set guidelines for push presents. “The standard is that there is no standard,” she said. “It does make sense to have etiquette around wedding or baby shower gifts because you’re inviting other people into it. But this is far too intimate to have a rule.” In general it is the woman who lets her man know about push presents, not the other way around, although there can be peer pressure from friends to buy one on either the man or the woman.
Diamonds were the most popular gift in the form of an eternity ring, but also tablet computers, charm bracelets and designer watches and handbags were also popular gifts to celebrate a new arrival.

We had a delightful visit from 3 little girls–best friends who wanted to get their ear pierced together. Our store was bursting with excitement and giggles as they each took the big step into the world of wearing cute and fashionable earrings.
They decided that they wanted to match, choosing the same sparkly blue for their first pair of earrings.
It was great to be part of their special day!
Getting your ear pierced is a rite of passage and what a wonderful way to celebrate by being surrounded by friends and family . . . ear-resistible!
Although it’s a tradition to wear a Diamond Engagement Ring, many are gravitating toward rings with a pop of color.
It’s a perfect way to show your personality. Whether you choose to wear a pink Diamond, colored Sapphire or glistening Emerald– any of these would surely make any bride-to-be smile.
Adding energetic hues gives Engagement Rings a fresh, exciting look.
For your center stone, try a Ruby, Tanzanite, or Tourmaline, and tell the world that you have an independent, fashion-forward sensibility; and surrounding your colorful center stone with sparkling diamonds adds vibrancy.
Stop by The Gold Market to consider some of your favorite colored-stone styles, and look for our next blog about the many different colored Diamonds.
One of our favorite things to do is helping customers with a jewelry restyle or diamond remount, transforming pieces of jewelry that they no longer wear, into something new that they love and wear all the time.
You can call it Restyling, Remounting, Reusing or even Recycling your old jewelry. It is the process of taking a diamond or colored stone out of its current setting, and remounting it into a new Ring, Pendant or Earring. Because sometimes you just need a change!
The basic human need to own and wear materials we consider special is what drives us to collect rocks and minerals. Perhaps this explains the lure of birthstones. How powerful it is to have our month of birth represented by a beautiful natural gemstone. We can own and display our special stone and feel embraced by its beauty.
