Mother's Day | Origin and Tradition

The origin of Mother's Day as a special date to honor the maternal figure dates back to a pagan tradition in Ancient Greece of worshiping and offering gifts to Rhea, the mother of some of their gods, which took place at the beginning of spring.

During the 17th century, servants and employees of large mansions were given a day off - Mothering Sunday - to visit their mothers and give them a gift.

In Boston, in the late 19th century, the celebration of Mother's Day began to honor those who had lost their children in the military.

The celebration stopped and reappeared shortly after in a more original sense: as a recognition and show of gratitude to those who have given us life.

Diamonds are a common gift on this date.
