Just in time for Mother’s Day, Kranich’s now offers a custom mothers ring builder. You can design your own ring with personal options as far as style, color and gemstones. You can choose how many stones you would like set into the ring, each one generally representing the birthstones of a womans children and you can even choose to have the ring engraved with each child’s name. There are even a few pendants that you can create for those who don’t wear rings. After completing the design phase, the jewelry is delivered to you within only ten days!
