What is Contemporary in relation to Jewellery?

What constitutes contemporary when discussing design?

A very difficult question to answer as design is seen differently by everyone.

Semina Lewis an award winning UK designer comments -
As a jewellery designer I suppose that to me contemporary is an unusual and modern design possibly unique and perhaps innovative in style –sometimes seen as art like in form and often provoking in appearance

Unusual Mothers Day jewellery gifts

Unique jewellery is always something that can be kept by the recipient and particularly relevant when being given by a child to it's mother. At Silver Wire Designs there are some interesting designs with many different styles including the ever popular pink gemstone Rose Quartz which is commonly given as a symbol of love and appreciation. Amethyst is also a popular choice for Mothers as it's purple hue goes well with most outfits and Garnet is seen as a traditional choice. For something a little different and appreciated by mother's for the craft work there are knitted silver pendants with gemstones entwinned into the silver - just something a little but different.
As well as pendants drop earrings also make a nice gift for Mothers Day especially when they are handmade and chosen especially for her.
