  • the story

Mom, You're A Star!

According to Greek mythology, the Ursa Major and Ursa Minor constellations (commonly known as the Big and Little Dippers) tell the story of a mother and child whose love was so strong that it was written in the stars to be recounted by the countless families of future millennia. Sister and stargazers, Jill Redman and Erin Cressaty, commemorate the bonds of family with this mythic pendant that twinkles with the Ursa Major and Ursa Minor constellations.

On the front of the card, the recipient will find a heartfelt quote from one well-known son to his mother, Abraham Lincoln: "All that I am or ever hope to be I owe to my angel mother." Inside, a striking pendant is inlaid with drops of mine-free (recycled) sterling silver inlaid on laser cut, sustainable ebony hardwood to subtly honor a relationship that—like the one shared by this astral pair—is strong, unconditional, and transcends the test of time. Handmade in Oregon.

My mom loved the necklace and the meaning behind it - she still hasn't taken it off since I gave it to her! It arrived quickly and was packed in a cute fabric bag so I didn't even need to wrap it further.

Comments about MOTHERHOOD NECKLACE:

The sentiment of this necklace was exactly what I was looking for as a gift to my daughter who now has daughters of her own. Unfortunately, the black disc fell out of the first necklace. Uncommon Goods happily replaced the necklace. Hopefully, the same thing won't happen the second time around.

Service and delivery comments:

The order was delivered promptly and beautifully gift-boxed. When we needed a replacement, the return label again was received promptly and the replacement piece arrived quickly.

        Center fell out on first wear. A replacement was requested but in order to get replacement the broken necklace had to be sent back- which is fine, except that the "replacement" necklace was the original necklace with a replacement center. In the process of replacing center, the outer edges were severely damaged. When I visited my mother recently and saw this- I was extremely disappointed. Will not ever order from this company again, unfortunately.

        Originally ordered for Mother's Day. First necklace broke in four (4) days. Easily replaced, but the second necklace broke in two(2) days. Easily replaced again, but broke in a week. The inlay falls out every time. The supplier was suppose to fix the issue, which seems to be the wrong adhesive is being used, but it doesn't appear this has been done. Great support by Uncommon Goods, but very disappointed in the craftsmanship of the product. Uncommon Goods should reevaluate their relationship with this supplier.

          Beautiful little piece, but the black center falls out. The first one I gave to my wife fell out and disappeared one day. Uncommon was great and quickly sent a replacement. That center fell out almost immediately after taking it out of the box. Glued it back in with superglue and it looks great. Really should not have to worry about this sort of thing.

          This item is a remembrance of my daughter's college days when I would tell her to look up at the dippers and know that I see them too, which brought us closer in distance. The thing that I was disappointed about is that it looked a little rougher around the edges in the picture, which made it look more handmade, but the item I received was too polished and finished.
