Never have charms enjoyed such popularity as they do today. Recently there’s been an explosion of brands offering everything from cheap-as-you-like coloured plastic beads to high-end precious metal charms.
The composability of charm bracelets is what makes them so irresistible to so many people. The sheer indulgence of having thousands of possible ways to wear a piece of jewellery, making each piece completely unique to the wearer, is what keeps people adding to their collections.
Here is a brief look at three of the better quality brands in today’s market.
Tedora has hundreds of beautiful silver beads as well as Murano glass beads, Swarovski crystal set beads and 14 carat gold beads, allowing the creation of some wondrous personalized pieces of jewellery. The Personality collection by Tedora is made entirely in Italy with its range of Murano glass beads actually being made in Murano (many bead systems use Murano glass in their beads but they are assembled in the far east). All Tedora beads are compatible with most major bead systems such as Simstars, Troll, Biagi & Pandora.
Simstars produce over 600 stunning charm beads. Made from either Sterling Silver, 14 carat gold or hand-blown coloured glass, Simstars beads are truly gorgeous. All beads have a twist centre core for secure fitting onto the bracelet. A full range of silver alphabet beads and zodiac beads is also a key part of the Simstars range. All Simstars beads are compatible with most major bead systems such as Tedora, Troll, Biagi & Pandora giving the user maximum flexibility when creating their bracelet.
Truth is an exciting new brand of silver charm beads. Create your very own style with this delightful collection. All Truth charm beads are made from Sterling Silver and are complemented by glass, enamel or gold plated detail. Truth beads display a wonderful mixture of bright colours and zany designs. Truth charm beads are compatible with most major bead systems including Troll, Pandora, Biagi, Tedora & Simstars.
Whichever bead range you choose, be sure to enjoy it and let your bracelet express who you really are- Fun and colourful, classical or just plain kooky.
