Charm bracelets can be funky and fun, or they can be formal and fashionable. They are usually comprised of bulkier chains which can carry the weight of the charms and the “jump rings” used to attach them. This sort of bulkiness often makes them difficult to wear with lighter or more delicate garments, and many people bemoan just how easily a charm might fall from the bracelet without the wearer ever noticing the event.
So, is there a way to wear charm bracelets with any type of garment and without the risk of costly loss? Yes, there are bracelets. These are just as customized as a standard charm bracelet, but they rely upon a much more innovative and streamlined design.
For instance, instead of looking to the hefty chains and jump rings, the bracelets use a patented base that includes a threaded end and special “clips” to keep the charms secure and in place. Because of this, the bracelets never feature the standard “chain” design and are instead available as silver and gold “serpent” chains, colored cotton cords, and durable leather braids. They can be clasped with a lobster clasp, or they can rely on the special barrel clasp that gives the look of a gold or silver bead.
Charm bracelets must all include at least two of the unique “clips” which close over the threaded ends of the bracelet and prevent the bracelet from unwinding and the beads from being lost. This is much more attractive than the standard security clasps of so many other styles of jewelry.
Not only are charm bracelets innovatively designed, but the number of beads, clips, and charms available currently stands at more than nine hundred! This makes it quite clear that almost any budget or any design is possible.
There are precious metal beads, glass and wooden beads, gemstone charms, solid gold or silver charms, and more. The spacer beads can be somewhat plain or they can feature patterns, designs, and ornamentation with precious and semi-precious stones. They can be made from glass blown into patterns and motifs, and they might also be made from exotic woods that are sustainably harvested from rain forest locations.
The charms can be found in almost any motif or style, and there are also large assortments of themes that include major life events, holidays, special occasions, animals, letters, and birthstones among dozens of others. There are also pre-packaged gift sets that make an ideal “starter kit” for a unique bracelet too.
