Every day we hear from our loyal customers about what their charm purchases mean to them and why they purchased them. This email came from a customer, detailing what her purchases meant to her.
I just had to let you know that I received the last several charms I ordered, among them the flute, trumpet, engraved “You’ve got Mail“, laptop, the painting and plumbing tools. Every one of them are SO detailed, and so exquisite in their representations (and the remembrances they will represent). Also several of the charms I bought will go on either a bracelet or on the small, lobster claw clasped drawstring to put charms on a cell phone.
The ones for the cell phone, which will be a gift from me will include the flute (representing me), the trumpet (representing a significant other), the laptop and engraved “You’ve Got Mail” charm. I recently got back in touch with my “first kiss boyfriend” and we started our communications via email. If ever someone tells you that dreams do not come true, you can tell them that you know of someone whose dreams have come true! I lost my husband of 32 years a little over three years ago, and never thought I would be blessed with those feelings again. To have another life begin at the age of 56 is another dream come true, and it is well-represented by the Rembrandt charms you have provided me.
I do not usually leave “comments” about purchases, but I had to let you know how pleased I am by all the charms I have purchased from Classic Charms – the painter’s set, the plumber’s set, the peanut and squirrel, etc. Those charms will be on a charm bracelet I received from my parents when I turned 16, and I will be giving it and the new charms to my daughter on her 30th birthday. Thank you for such beautiful pieces!

Somethings are just timeless – Barbie is one of them. March 9th is Barbie’s 50th birthday, with over 800 million “Barbie Dolls” sold. Do you remember as a child, your Barbie collection? If you were the typical little girl, (like me) you had a barbie family, closets of clothes, barbie car, barbie pool and anything you could get your hands on. Why was Barbie so popular then (and now?) In a word – fashion. Barbie was always the most fashionable gal in town. No matter, if she was dressed in her swimsuit – she came complete with earrings, shoes, and even necklaces or if she was dressed for the evening – she was decked out in evening wear, complete with a bracelet, earrings and even a necklace. Barbie was always the fashion icon and somethings just dont go out of style. We certainly all cannot be “Barbie” but with the right accessories – we can sure try. Create a charm bracelet with all Barbie’s favorite assessories – shoe charms, purse charms, sunglass charms, and even a drivers liscence charm!

With its shades of Mediterranean blue, aquamarine was destined to be forever associated with the sea. The ancient Romans believed Neptune, the king of the sea, gave aquamarine to the mermaids, and sailors in the Middle Ages purportedly slept with it to ensure a safe passage. Today, this almost hard-as-diamond beryl is still associated with long passages. It is also given as the 19th anniversary stone, as well as the birthstone for the month of March. Celebrate her birthday this month with a lovely aquamarine charm from Classic Charms.
