The Symbols

The Chain is
Connected to a
Double Stem referred
to as the"Stem of Life".

One Stem Repesents
the Physical Connection
The Umbilical Cord.
The Other Stem
Represents The Spiritual Connection
Between Mother and Child
That Last A Lifetime

The Diamond is
The Purest of
All Minerals;
Furthermore,The Diamond
is The Hardest
Substance in
The Known Universe.
Therefore, The Diamond
Was Chosen For
The Centerpiece Not
Only To Represent
The Balance That
Mothers Bring
to The Family,
But Also As An
International Symbol of Strength,
Purity And Admiration.

Six Hearts Represent
The Six Letters
in The Word
All of The
Hearts Point Toward
The Diamond And
Form A Star
Around The Diamond.
Just As The Stars
Have Guided The
Travelers For Centuries,
So Have Mothers
Guided Their Children..

The Many Lines
That Radiate From
The Center Are
Referred To As
"Rays Of Sacriface"
And Symbolize
The 365 Days
Per Year That
Mothers Make Sacrifaces
Both Large And Small
For The Benefit
Of Their Children.

On The Back
Are Four Simple
But Powerful Words
That Sum Up
A Child*s Sincere
Appreciation For A
Lifetime Of Love
And Guidance.
""To Mom With Love""
