Mamma mia! Can you believe the day devoted to moms is upon us already? If you're anything like us, you're still scrambling to find that perfect present, especially if Mommie Dearest falls into that delightful hard-to-buy-for category. They say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach; for women, then, it's a safe bet to go for all that glitters. But while diamonds might be a girl's best friend, Mother's Day calls for something slightly less pricey and a little more personal. Behold three fun, colorful options we're sure that oh-so-special lady in your life will adore.

Kelsey Quan necklaces, from $335, info@kelseyquan.com to order.

This new Brooklyn-based, L.A.-bred jewelry designer stole our heart with her neon-bright baubles made from camping cord (trend alert!) and gorgeous stones. While the eye-popping hues nod to Quan's West Coast roots, the pieces' artsy construction has caught the eye of many a Manhattan editor. We don't know many stylish mums without a penchant for a great statement necklace, and we think any of Kelsey's one-of-a-kind creations would fit the bill beautifully. Just don't mention that you might wind up borrowing these babies for yourself every so often.

Melissa Joy Manning for Anthropologie earrings, $298 per pair, anthropologie.com for stores.

Flip through any issue of Marie Claire and you're bound to find an item of Manning's organic, elegant collection in one of our fashion spreads--our team is smitten with her earthy-glam aesthetic. Now, thankfully, the designer is bringing her creations to a wider audience by teaming with Anthropologie for a limited-edition run of hand-crafted earrings. With a focus on the raw materials used, from Mexican agate to Peruvian opal, these sparklers are sure to earn Mom's seal of approval. But since a total of only 110 pairs will be sold, we suggest hitting up your local Anthro branch, pronto!

SEAH Destiny bracelets, $250 to $325 each, seahwatches.com.

A mother's life is all about balance--so why shouldn't that extend to what she wears? In a slew of Crayola tones like orange, red, and bright blue, SEAH's understated leather wrap bracelets incorporate your mom's own zodiac sign, plus its astrological counterpoints (there's one for Aries / Taurus / Gemini / Cancer, one for Leo / Virgo / Libra / Scorpio, and a third for Sagittarius / Capricorn / Aquarius / Pisces). Bonus points if your mom happens to be a Susan Miller devotee (not that we're naming names here).
