Why Mom is center of the universe.

Angelina Jolie, Kelly Ripa, and Julia Roberts--to name just a few--are glamorous stars who also are mothers. Why not treat your mom like the star she is with a thoughtful, one-of-a-kind celestial gift from Oregon-based, online retailer Wandering Star, which believes you can wear your universe with custom handcrafted astrology gifts.

Founder Alicia Katz hit upon the idea of astrology jewelry while studying astronomy in Santa Fe, N.M. Her Mommy Necklace, for instance, is individually customized and composed of three strands that represent a combination of horoscopes for the kids, mom, dad, or other family members. By wearing the birth charts of her family, mom will experience her role as the center of the family's universe. Each piece of jewelry comes with a 15-page Horoscope interpretation for each family member printed on parchment paper.

Mommy charm bracelets, meanwhile, are personalized as well--an add-a-charm set includes one 7 1/2" sterling silver toggle bracelet and two pewter zodiac charms of mom's choice. Then, add as many charms as you like for children, grandkids, and loved ones-and a pair of matching earrings in her sign.

Prices start at $12, with custom pieces ranging up from $99 to $249. For more information, visit
