At 2am this Sunday, March 11, Daylight Saving Time begins in the United States. But you don’t have to wait until then to get in on some of the saving here at Classic Charms! That’s right—we’re having a special promotion in honor of the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. (The word “saving” is in there, after all… right?) And since it’s an occasion that can play tricks on your clock (and your mind, frankly), we decided to make it easy on you and give you the option to save however you want. When you make a purchase at Classic Charms this weekend (March 9, 10, and 11) there are two ways for you to save. So go ahead and “spring forward” this weekend and rack up the saving on your Rembrandt charms, beads, and other great jewelry accessories.
Use the code SPRING
If you feel like spring is in the air, you can enter the code “SPRING” at checkout and receive 10% off your order. This is the perfect option for those that want to stock up on some charms this weekend.
Use the code FORWARD
You can use the code “FORWARD” at checkout to get free USPS shipping this weekend. If you’re only ordering a few things, this is the perfect way to save a few dollars!
And a reminder…
It’s always easy to forget before you go to bed on Saturday night—but you need to SPRING FORWARD and set your clocks an hour later this weekend. We know you lose an hour of sleep on Saturday night… but isn’t it worth it for the extra sunshine when you get out of work?
Don’t forget to SPRING (10% off) FORWARD (free shipping) at Classic Charms this weekend!
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!
We can’t wait to see what good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil has to say tomorrow morning! According to legend, if it’s cloudy when he leaves his burrow on that day, it’s a signal that the winter-like weather will soon end. If it’s a sunny day, he sees his shadow, retreats back to his burrow, and the winter is said to continue for six more weeks. Here at Classic Charms, we’re not exactly sure how good a big rodent is at meteorology… but who are we to argue with tradition? In fact, we think it’s kind of sweet.
The biggest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, PA, where the crowd can sometimes be as large as 40,000. The University of Dallas in Irving, TX actually has taken Groundhog Day as its official university holiday. They have a huge celebration each year to honor the Groundhog.
What can we do to help honor the Groundhog this year? Well, keep your eye to the sky tomorrow morning when Punxsutawney Phil makes his prediction. If there’s supposed to be six more weeks of winter, you’ll get FREE SHIPPING from Classic Charms. But if we’re expecting an early spring, you’ll get a FREE BEAD from our grab bag. Either way, you come out a winner! With gorgeous Rembrandt charms and charming accessories to choose from, you’re sure to find something precious at Classic Charms. You just have to enter the code “FEB2” at checkout once the Groundhog makes his prediction tomorrow morning.

It’s not always easy for a grandmother to figure out the perfect gift to give a granddaughter on Valentine’s Day. After all, Valentine’s Day is about celebrating love, and there are few things more special than a grandmother’s love. So what’s a thoughtful grandma to do? Well, we’re about more than just charms here at Classic Charms (even though “charms” is in our name!). We also have a wide selection of gold and silver lockets that are perfect keepsake gifts for granddaughters on Valentine’s Day.
Really… what little girl (or full-grown woman, for that matter) doesn’t love jewelry? A locket will be a granddaughter’s cherished piece that she’s sure to appreciate for years to come. We love the idea of giving a locket to a little girl for Valentine’s Day. Choose from our many different sizes and styles—a locket can truly be chosen to fit the personality of the girl or woman that’s going to wear it. Heart lockets, round lockets, oval lockets, and Celtic lockets can be the perfect way to show your granddaughter just how special she is.
But the most special thing you can do is place a photo inside the locket for an added personal touch. The perfect starter picture for your granddaughter’s locket would be a picture of you holding her when she was first born.
A locket this Valentine’s Day is something that your granddaughter will never outgrow. And, let’s face it, they grow up so fast!

With New Year’s Eve now behind us, we’re pretty sure that there are plenty of newly-engaged couples out there! If you got engaged over the holiday… Congratulations! You have a lot of planning to do now, don’t you? Well, we’re here to make sure that the little things are as easy as possible. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been planning your wedding since you were a little girl. You know what you want the flowers to look like, and you know who you want your bridesmaids to be. But do you know what you want to give your bridesmaids as a token of your appreciation?
Start them out with a bridesmaid charm!
Giving jewelry to your bridesmaids is a win-win situation. You have a perfect opportunity to thank them for being part of your wedding, and you can help them look fabulous during the ceremony with a new little bauble! With the selection of Rembrandt charms and other gorgeous jewelry here at Classic Charms, it’s easy to choose jewelry that’s perfect for the occasion. Here are some of our favorite ideas:
- We offer engraving, so you can get a gorgeous engraved charm for your bridesmaids. Have something personal put onto each piece. It’s sentimental, but it’s totally adorable.
- If you want to help your bridesmaids start their own tradition, you can set them up with a charm bracelet and one or two charms to go with it. They can then build up and add to it on their own.
- You can get them something personal without getting too cutesy by choosing charms with each bridesmaid’s initial. Initial charms are so classically chic.
As you enter this new chapter in your life, it’s always important to remember the people that helped to get you where you are today! Celebrate the New Year and your new life with the perfect jewelry gifts for your bridesmaids.
