A mother is worth more than gold… So it should worship her as she adorns it. Coveted more than the rarest of jewels… She is like a treasure that cannot be bound by a chest as her very chest, her very bosom never stops over flowing with the riches of her love. Give her everything she deserves… no gift is too much for her. So get her gold, diamonds, rubies, sapphire, platinum whatever you must. As she truly deserves only the best. ✨💫✨💫✨💫👑✨💫✨💫✨💫 Gold by @elegance_jewellers
