This year, according a recently published survey, the industry expects to see a jump of 11 percent in spending on jewelry related gifts during this mother’s day season.

Those consumers who earn less than $50,000 per year expect to spend an average of $74.94 on jewelry, while those earning more than $50,000 plan to spend an average of $122.86 on their jewelry purchase for Mother’s Day.”
