A favourite set amongst the Chamilia Charms is the Disney Bead series. Chamilia reproduces beads featuring some of the favourite Disney characters, such as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald and Daisy Duck, and Pooh Bear to name but a few.
As with their other beads, you can find Disney charms in gold, sterling silver and murano glass as well. There are also combination beads where the main part of the bead is crafted in silver, with an addition of something crafted in gold. For example you can find a silver Pooh Bear holding a gold honey-pot, and a silver Minnie Mouse sporting a gold bow in her hair. Even Sterling silver Eeyore is dressed up with a gold bow!
To date Chamilia has come out with over forty five Disney Chamilia charms. Other characters, not mentioned above, include Piglet and Tigger, Dopey who is one of the Seven Dwarves, Kermit the frog makes an appearance, and the Tinkerbell charm is absolutely gorgeous in its detail and craftsmanship. You can also find a Disney castle, a Pumpkin coach and other Disney related items amongst this bead collection, it’s not limited to characters only.
There is a greater selection of Sterling silver beads than gold, or the mixed silver with gold. As is to be expected, prices vary according to the metal the charm is made from, and how intricate the design is. A solid gold charm can cost anywhere up to around $350 or more. Remember, with gold you are paying for the weight of the gold, thus a gold cut out bead is substantially less than this and would cost you around or less than $200.
The silver beads with gold, such as Pooh Bear and his gold honey-pot, or Eeyore and his gold bow are substantially cheaper; anywhere from $40 to $75.
As far the all Sterling silver beads, their prices also vary according to the weight of the charm and the actual design itself, but overall they are much cheaper. They range anywhere from around $25 up to close to $50. Murano Disney beads come somewhere in-between.
While they make a perfect set for starting off a girl’s Chamilia Charm bracelet, they are actually very popular with everyone. There’s nothing like adding a Disney charm to your Chamilia bracelet to bring a smile to your and everyone else’s face when they catch sight of it. While some of the charms are obviously quite cartoonish, others such as the gold Tinkerbell actually look quite stylish.
