Carrying a baby for nine months is ultimately very rewarding– but it’s also a lot of hard work. That’s where push presents come in. A push present is a gift that’s given to a new mother to show appreciation for the monumental effort she’s put in throughout her pregnancy and delivery. This gift, typically given by the new father or the new mom’s family, is also meant to celebrate and commemorate the new baby’s arrival into the world.
While any type of gift can be a push gift, the most traditional type of push gift is a beautiful new piece of fine jewelry. Fine jewelry is an enduringly popular push present choice because it’s special and meaningful, and because it can be enjoyed for a lifetime. A dazzling new piece of jewelry is something that will make a new mom feel special now, then will also serve as a lovely reminder of a cherished memory for decades to come.
Wondering which new piece of jewelry you should give the new mom in your life? We’re here to help! Below, we’re going over 7 sparkling push presents that any new mom will adore. Each of the pieces we’re featuring here in our push gift guide has a chic style that will stand the test of time, so you can give a lasting gift she’ll treasure wearing year after year.

Diamond pendants come in a wide variety of styles, so you have many options to choose from if you select a diamond pendant for her push gift.

You could give her an upgraded engagement ring or give her a diamond ring that’s meant to be a fabulous accessory.

3. Diamond Stud Earrings

Diamond stud earrings are arguably the most highly desired type of fine jewelry. So, if the new mom in your life doesn’t yet own a pair of diamond studs, she’ll be thrilled to receive a pair as her push present.
While diamond stud earrings are a wonderful gift idea for virtually any occasion, it’s worth noting that they’re a particularly good gift idea for a new mom. Diamond studs are beautiful, durable, and easy-to-wear– and they’re also very hard for a little one to grab onto. Stud earrings are something a new mom can wear without worrying that her jewelry will be pulled or yanked, which means she can enjoy wearing her studs with confidence, day in and day out.
4. Gemstone Stud Earrings

Gemstone stud earrings are gorgeous and classic. They also offer an opportunity to add lovely sentiment to your push present gift. When selecting a pair of gemstone studs, you can personalize them by choosing the newborn baby’s birthstone or the new mom’s birthstone. You can also choose gemstones that have a sentiment you connect with or would like to express. Every gemstone comes with its own unique meaning. For example, blue sapphires are a symbol of kindness, faith, and protection, and rubies represent love, energy, and passion. Gifting gemstones that symbolize something personal to you can make your push present all the more special and memorable.
5. Diamond Hoops

When shopping for a pair of diamond hoops to give as a push present, you’ll want to consider which size would be best for her personal style and lifestyle. Petite diamond hoops, also called huggie hoops, are a great option for everyday wear with casual or work outfits. Large or oversized diamond hoops are best for upscale attire or for those who like to be bold with their day-to-day looks. Then, medium-sized diamond hoops, like the pair pictured above, are a good middle-ground option that can work with more casual and more upscale outfits.
