Who let the charms out?

Hearts Charm BraceletWas it the designers for Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Cartier, Dior, who for the last couple of years, have been pinning, hanging or sewing charms onto anything and everything?  Was it celebrities that brought the fashion of charms back? Actor Matthew Broderick gave his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker a charm bracelet to commemorate the birth of their son.  Was it today’s political, social and economic uncertainties that aroused in us a desire to return to a simpler, more secure time? The fact is most charm jewelry is personal, autobiographical, and often sentimental – a sort of scrapbook of our lives that links us to family members, old friends, and happy memories.  Or was it because charms really do possess magical powers as it was once thought to.

You probably remember your Grandmother or Mother wearing a charm bracelet, whenever she walked, her charms jingled, then as time passed you didn’t find any charms or charm bracelets on women.  What happened to them? Before you know it, everywhere you look, you see a someone wearing a charm bracelet and what happens? You have to look, you have to ask and you realize I must have one of those.  Think about all the important people and places in your life.  Charm bracelets are like wearing your life story – a photo album on your wrist.

Its become tradition in many families to start the charm bracelet tradition when a child is born.  We have many customers, who tell us they are starting a bracelet for their grand daughter who was just born and they buy a charm (something significant that happened that year) and add to it each year, so by the time the child is a young teen, they have a lovely piece of jewelry, bringing back all the child hood memories of people, places and things that left an impression on them. What a perfect gift to give – a lifetime of memories.
