LOVE YOUR MOTHER
The Inspiration Behind It All
Dear Mother Earth and Mums everywhere, one day is not enough to celebrate all you do for us but this day is all about you and how much we love you. Your impact is greater than you could ever know and at SALOME, mothers and Mother Earth are our greatest inspirations.

This month we want to celebrate mothers of all kinds, everywhere. The brand itself, SALOME, is named after our founder Kellie Daniels' late mother, paying a touching tribute to Kellie’s inspiration and commitment to carrying on the legacy of mother daughter relationships by incorporating her own three young daughters into her work. At SALOME the stones we use all have meaning far beyond their beauty, which is why we want to highlight mums and nature with the crystal that symbolises unconditional love, rose quartz.

Mothers play a vital role in our lives. They can provide a sense of protection, support and love. Apart from its natural beauty and delicate rose colour, the rose quartz gem is a symbolic stone of power and universal love. Whether that be self love or outward love, rose quartz exudes elegance as it is considered to be the crystal of Venus, Goddess of love and beauty.

Venus was the mother of Cupid and was famous for her romantic intrigues with both gods and mortals. She is often associated with femininity which is perfectly displayed in our rose quartz pieces. The simplicity and elegance of rose quartz is a perfect gift for your mum or for you!

While Mother’s Day in the UK has passed, celebrating mums is a year round event. Give the gift of one of our beautiful rose quartz pieces. Mother's Day may be hard for various reasons, so do not be afraid to treat yourself to some jewellery as well or celebrate Mother Earth and all she has given us. This crystal is special in that it not only symbolises love and power, it is also thought to provide a vital shield against emotional and environmental stress. And be a healing crystal.
