Philadelphia, PA (Vocus) April 22, 2009
All of us love our mothers and want the best for them. On Mother's Day we want to shower her with presents, but this year presents a challenge. With the economy still in free fall, many of us find our wallets considerably lighter this upcoming holiday. Even luxury goods makers have to more creative during this time. Experts forecast that the 234 Billion dollar industry may slide by 3-7% this year.
To help stem the tide, Steven Lagos of LAGOS jewelers has created a more streamlined and less expensive line for Mother’s Day 2009. The factory, located at 441 North Fifth Street in Philadelphia, is turning out the new items using recycled metals which also help to cut down the costs.
Signature pieces such as the caviar heart ring, the classic rope bracelet, the fluted heart necklace and the love knot earrings are all being made in smaller versions. This insures that you can still afford to give mom beautiful jewelry that won’t break the bank.
Mother’s Day was started by Philadelphia native Anna Jarvis in 1908 as a time for the country to show appreciation to mom. Over the years it has grown and become a national holiday, however the message is the same, to say thanks to that special lady for all she has done.
