The Mommy Pendant
Tell us about your business.The Mommy Pendant didn't actually start out with the intention of becoming a business. When my husband brought up the topic of a “Push Present,” I wanted something meaningful that celebrated motherhood and that could also be worn on a daily basis. All I found were novelty items like baby shoes and pacifiers, not the ideal jewelry for professional environments. So I designed my own pendant inspired by the most precious moment of my pregnancy, cradling my daughter for the first time. People asked where they could get one, so we expanded the line, built a website and started selling. It was important for us to make the piece sentimental and customizable so moms can get a push present as unique as their babies. As such, we designed the website to allow customers to customize the pendant online and see what it will look like! Even the packaging was designed to be sentimental, featuring a unique design with the words “remember your first embrace” right above The Mommy Pendant.
What makes your business stand out?Not only is The Mommy Pendant the most sentimental push present, it is fully customizable and can be personalized to fit each individual family and budget. Customers build their own pendant choosing the type of metal, color, number of birthstones, type of birthstones (genuine or simulated), as well as the type of chain. We also offer a special design for twins! The Mommy Pendant offers a high-end piece of jewelry at a very affordable price, with quality that can only be made in the USA!
