¡Feliz Dia de las Madres! (For those of you who no hablan español, that’s “Happy Mother’s Day!) That’s the greeting many of the 35 million people who do speak Spanish and who live in the United States will say to their mothers on Sunday.
And one designer is hoping to help Spanish-speakers get their message across with her collection of sterling silver “endearings,” rings that spell out “Mama,” “Mamcita,” “Madre,” some typical Spanish words for mother.
“I grew up in south Texas, where most of my friends spoke Spanish,” says Dallas-based designer Dian Malouf. “I wanted to create something special for all the moms.”
Her “endearings” also come inscribed with “Mom,” “Mimi,” and “Nana,” well known nicknames for mothers and grandmothers no matter what the language. In fact, if someone doesn’t find their favorite mom moniker, Malouf also offers rings in the same styles, but blank.
“Most local jewelers can engrave names or nicknames into the blank rings if we don’t offer the term of endearment someone needs,” Malouf adds.
Muchas gracias, Dian. Se lo agradecemos.
Made in the USA, each “endearing” retails for $76; Call: 214-520-3123
