For the ultimate in mom’s jewelry, you have to check out Tali Gillette’s "mama" necklaces.Inspired by her son’s milestones and wanting to wear the memory of hisfirst words, the jewelry designer/mom created the Mama Collection ofjewelry. She says, "Having a child introduces you to depths of loveyou never knew possible. And while often exhausting, there is no jobmore thrilling or satisfying than raising that little bundle."

Thepiece de resistance is her 18k white gold diamond-encrusted circlenecklace ($2,395). It’s owned by numerous A-list celebrity moms Gwyneth Paltrow (who was photographed wearing hers at the Live 8 concert), Jennifer Garner (gifted by Alias co-star Kevin Wiseman), Sarah Jessica Parker, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Kate Hudson and Denise Richards. When Maggie Gyllenhaal received hers, she showed it to her mom and said, "Look, my first mommy necklace. I can’t wait to wear it!"

Tali also offers more affordable pieces like non-diamond versions-white gold ($395), and yellow or rose gold (starting at $525), as wellas a vertical "bar" design.
