The Charm of Charm Bracelets


For the love of Charms!


Charms are small trinkets that can be attached to a bracelet or necklace to create a unique piece  of jewelry.  Why do we collect charms?  The places we go or want to go?   The things we have done or want to do?  To celebrate successes?  Perhaps we collect charms for all of those reasons.   And maybe the charms “connect us” to friends or family in a special way.

One of the most fun things about charm bracelets is that no two are alike.  Over time, the bracelet can tell the story of your life.


Gold or Silver or Neither?


When you get a “Starter Chain”, this sets the stage for your charm bracelet.   “Real Gold” or platinum is nice, but does make adding charms much more costly.   Sterling silver is pretty, and you can find lots of sterling charms.   Base metal also works.   They all make lovely bracelets; just have to put some thought into which is best for you.

One also needs to consider that friends and family love gifting charms, so will need to think about this when picking your starter chain.


A Charm Necklace?




Have you ever been just a little frustrated wearing a charm bracelet as the charms clanged about and caught on this or on that?   Do you have a special charm  bracelet you would love to wear more?    Consider transforming the bracelet into a charm necklace.    By adding a chain to each end, you have created a wonderful necklace.   If done in a certain way, can be a long necklace, short necklace, or once again be a bracelet.



Charmed by the Charmed Bracelet


A charm bracelet can be an excellent conversation starter.   Males and females alike will be mesmerized as you tell little tales of each charm.  What stories would your bracelet tell?

We have a fun selection  of Charms in our store; one just might complete one of your tales!   And best of all, charm bracelets never go out of style!
