Memorable Mothers' Day

My best friend's husband has asked for help finding a first Mother's Day gift. We're at a loss. Hope him?
My best friend's husband wants to get his wife a lovely, heirloom-quality gift for her first Mother's Day. He has a budget of $250. Just prior to their engagement, he bought her a very rustic, yet delicate, emerald and gold necklace. Her engagement ring is a slender gold band with little emeralds in it.
Their first child is due in mid-May, which would make emeralds an appropriate choice. She also loves garnets. He's thinking of either a bracelet containing emeralds (no need to match the other pieces, because she'd never wear them all together anyway), or any piece of jewelry containing garnets. Something that is neither particularly delicate, nor terribly ornate. A piece she could wear with jeans and a t-shirt, or with a cocktail dress. A piece she'll want to pull out in 30-some-odd years to illustrate her story when their first son is getting ready to have his first kid. She's a fairly girly-girl, but also very active.
