Charm bracelets can tell truly charming stories about your life, your interests, and your dreams. That’s why we’re so excited for Sunday! Sunday February 26th is Tell a Fairy Tale Day. What can you do to make this magical holiday even more special? Tell a Fairy Tale Day is a great opportunity to sit down and read to your kids. But if the kids aren’t around… there’s nothing wrong with reading some fairy tales on your own! Everybody loves a good story with a happy ending. (The Knight in Shining Armor doesn’t hurt, either!)
And that’s the thing… Tell a Fairy Tale Day is important because it reminds us that even the most upsetting situations can always come to a happy ending. There’s nothing better than a good story that ends with the words, “…and they lived happily ever after.” On Tell a Fairy Tale Day, take a look at the charm bracelet that tells your personal story. There may have been some bumps along the road, but all of the charms on your bracelet represent something that makes you truly unique!
Is there a woman in your life that inspires you to tell a story? While you’re thinking about happy endings on Tell a Fairy Tale Day, keep our Inspirational Women contest in mind! Tell us a story about an inspiring woman, and you could win up to $150 worth of charms from Classic Charms.
Start telling those stories, charmers! Every woman has her own unique fairy tale to tell—and charm bracelets can help paint a truly “happily ever after” picture.
Here at Classic Charms, we love hearing about the stories that inspire your life. After all, the perfect charm bracelet is the perfect way to show the world where you’ve been and what makes you who you are. That’s why we’re going to celebrate International Women’s Day in style. International Women’s Day is March 8th, and it’s a day to celebrate and honor the great strides that women have made over the past century. As women, we’ve really come quite a long way! In the past 100 years, we’ve gotten the right to vote, and more and more of us are becoming powerful players in the business world—all while maintaining the home front. In celebration of the wonder that is “woman,” we invite you to share the story of a woman that truly inspires you.
Classic Charms International Women’s Day Story Contest
Tell us a story about a woman who is inspiring—this can be you or someone else. Women can do amazing things, and we want to hear about it! We believe that charms can tell any story, so use charms from our site (give us the item numbers, please!) to enhance your storytelling. If we think your story is the most inspiring, you’ll win a charm bracelet and the charms that you used to tell your story—up to a $150 value! The charms must be from our sterling silver charms collection.
We’ll announce the winner of the Classic Charms International Women’s Day story contest will be announced on March 8th.
Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be waiting for your charming inspiration!
Ohm is the sound of life, formed by Brahma, name of the spiritual Sun for the Hindus, a symbol of reality as a whole. Ohm is life, and to embrace it is a great way to bring balance and happiness to your life. When you craft a bracelet with an Ohm bead you find so much goodness in all the culture, traditions and personality!
Here’s a few ways to embrace the Ohm:
- Find your inner Ohm by taking a meditation class.
- Create a bracelet with an Ohm bead. Any Ohm bead can do, but one that fits your fun personality works best to promote wellness!
- Give a friend who is struggling this month, their own Ohm bead bracelet.
- Go gun hoe for life, by getting out and exercising. Our suggestion? Going out and participate in a marathon or run/walk for Breast Cancer Awareness this month!
One of the best things we hope to encourage as part of Women’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month is the Ohm way of embracing life. While we encourage awareness and prevention, don’t forget to live life as well. Also, be sure to keep an eye for our next Breast Cancer Awareness Month promotion to start next week!

While most of us are starting to think of shopping for Valentine’s Day for our sweetheart, we at Classic Charms want to help those hit by the Earthquake in Haiti and certainly are not thinking of candy, flowers and jewelry, but rather the necessities in life: food, water, clothing, & shelter. The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12th was the strongest in over 200 years and is the single worst natural disaster in Haiti’s history. As many as 50,000 people are feared dead. Nearly 3 million residents, a third of Haiti’s population, have been displaced or left homeless. Place any order on Feb 4th and we will donate 10% of your order to The Red Cross to help those in need. You can even add a donation to your order and we will include this amount, in your name when we make our donation to the Red Cross. Our hearts go out to those affected by this terrible earthquake and we are dedicated to help you.

One of the most universal signs we recognize today is the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon. I bet you can’t find a single soul out there who doesn’t have a friend, Mother, Sister, daughter or relative who this awful disease has touched. Did you know every 13 minutes one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and caught early enough, it can be beat! We, at Classic Charms are big supporters of the cause. We choose to celebrate the survivors who have rose above this awful disease. Our Breast Cancer Survivor Charm bracelet shows the stages a woman goes through when fighting to win against Breast Cancer. Charms include: a female symbol – because it affects all women, a lighting bolt – because it hits you like a bolt of lightning, a teardrop charm – because at first you cry, a heart charm – because you find the courage and strength from inside your heart, a pink ribbon charm – because it makes you aware, and then a star charm, because then you shine. We choose to donate to the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, PA for the proceeds of the sale of our survivor bracelets. We also carry the pink Ribbon Charm, by Rembrandt Charms, and Rembrandt will donate 10% to the Susan G Komen Foundation to aid in the finding of a cure! Together, we can find the cure.

Whenever you talk to a retail jeweler about what really makes their business tick, the answer is invariably the same: passion. It’s the passion for the profession that sets the independent jeweler apart from their retail competitors. Such passion is carried through for clients and the community, above and beyond profit motive. This month, Modern Jeweler Magazine spoke to independent jewelers about cause-related jewelry they sell. When Modern Jeweler Magazine asked retailers about selling jewelry that benefited a charities, we learned many cause-related jewelry items were exclusive to their stores.
This month, Modern Jeweler Magazine featured our exclusive Breast Cancer Survivor Charm Bracelet as one of the top picks for jewelry for a cause! Pick up a copy of Modern Jeweler Magazine (Jan 08 issue) and read about jewelry for a cause. Turn to page 68 to view our bracelet!

4. Heart – because you find the courage and strength from inside your heart.
5. Pink Ribbon – because it makes you aware.
