Capture the unique bond between mother and child this Mothering Sunday with our stunning Ladies Dreamcatcher Collection here at Deakin & Francis.
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood have a vast and fascinating history dating back to ancient Greece, where people would hold festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhe and Cybele. However, Mothers Day as we recognise it today can be traced back to 16th Century Britain and the early Christian festival known as Mothering Sunday.
Originally, Mothering Sunday was seen as a time when domestic workers would return to their mother church on the third Sunday of Lent so they could worship together with their families, and the notion of presenting your mother with a gift stemmed from the act of picking flowers along the route home that you would give to her as a token of appreciation, gratitude and love.
In recent years we have seen Mothering Sunday grow into a beautiful day where we honour both our mothers and the mother figures in our lives with symbols of the unconditional bond that is shared between parent and child. At Deakin & Francis, we believe in using this day as an opportunity to gift the strong matriarchal figures in our lives with something truly beautiful and reflective of the love that envelopes this unique relationship.
The Ladies Dreamcatcher Collection
Our mothers are the watchers of our dreams who guide us as we grow into the person that we’re meant to be. They safeguard our hopes and create a loving space where we are able to express our deepest ambitions. Our Dreamcatcher Collection represents this sacred exchange of shared hopes and dreams, and each item in the collection instils in it the love, hope and support that is given to us by our mothers throughout our lives.
This collection perfectly encapsulates the emotions shared between families on Mothering Sunday and presents a stunning range of items including pendants, earrinsg and rings; all of which contain precision cut pieces of Mother of Pearl and precious gemstone centres. As an organic, natural stone, the Mother of Pearl that is used in each pendant is totally unique, and is said to have strong associations with positive fortune and good luck, making it the perfect token to represent the unique bond shared between those celebrating Mothers Day.
Each item in our collection features white and grey Mother of Pearl inlays, and the round designs are delicately encased in a choice of either Sterling Silver or Rose Gold plated settings, finished with a choice of four stunning precious gemstones; aquamarine, blue sapphire, pink sapphire or yellow sapphire.
