I don’t know about you, but when I put on a charm bracelet, it makes me feel young and happy! If you haven’t tried wearing a charm bracelet, maybe it is time you did so you can get happy, too. The charms for bracelets I have in my collection fall into several different types, but I love them all. Here’s a little rundown of the main types of charms you can get, and a little about them all.
Do you love jewelry that swings and moves with you? Then you should get a bracelet that is made with dangling charms. This type of bracelet looks fun and youthful, and I dare you not to smile when you hear the charms clinking together when you move! They attach easily with a small metal ring. If you purchase expensive gold or silver charms, you may want to have them attached with jumprings that have been soldered closed so it will positively never be able to fall off of your bracelet. Finding dangle-type charms could not be easier, because they are sold everywhere, from discount stores to exclusive jewelry stores, and online also. You may have a bit of trouble deciding exactly which ones you want since there are so many to choose from, but I figure that is the kind of trouble I like having!
For many people, Italian charms for bracelets are very popular. These charms will only work with special bracelets that the charms can be snapped on to. Each charm has a little mechanism on the back of it that allows it to be securely attached to the bracelet. The charms themselves are square to rectangular shaped, and come in all sorts of designs. Many men love to wear Italian charm bracelets, also, because of their understated and sleek appearance. The most well known Italian charm company is Zoppini. Their charms and bracelets are very high quality, and will last for years. A very good thing about this type of charm bracelet is that the base bracelets are stainless steel, which won’t cause allergic reactions for those who have metal allergies.
Bead charms for bracelets rounds out your charm bracelet charm choices. The most popular type of bead charms are Pandora bead charms. They are very high quality, and come in your choice of 14K gold or sterling silver. Some have a combination of both. There are also Murano glass bead charms available from Pandora. The individual charms are threaded, and twist over threaded sections on the Pandora snake chain bracelet. You can find many different themes, shapes and sizes of bead charms, ranging in price from about $30 for sterling silver and Murano glass to $500 for some of the gold/gemstone charms. You can even find bead charms with “dangles”. Bead charm bracelets are very elegant and sophisticated, and will blend in beautifully with all of the other jewelry in your collection.
