Charm Bracelets Have Been Around For Centuries

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

There are some things that never go out of style no matter what. The charm that they hold is timeless and no matter how many generation they might have been around for the present generation will always save a special place for it. The charm bracelet is one such thing.

When did it all start?

Charm bracelets have been around for centuries. The earliest ones have been traced back to 500 B.C. This was the time when the Babylonians, Persians and the Assyrians wore charms around their wrists. These charms were generally associated with special powers. Charms were also popular during the Victorian era in England. During this time fashionable women made this their standard attire. Besides being trendy jewelry at that time, these charm bracelets were also worn for spiritual protection. Queen Victoria used to wear a bracelet with small picture of her family in it. Charm bracelets today have evolved. They are not only a piece of trendy jewelry, but also theme based for example charms which bring back certain memories, and are generally handed down from generation to generation.

Traditional charm bracelets

The traditional charm bracelets are generally made in silver or gold with charms dangling from them. These bracelets come with hundreds of different themes that you can choose from. These bracelets also make excellent gifts. Because of the huge variety in themes, you can probably represent just about any concept that you like. Charm bracelets with lockets are generally passed down as family heirlooms. The best part about using charm bracelets as trendy jewelry is that the charms can be modified at any point, keeping the original bracelet intact.

Charm bracelets from Italy

The charm bracelets from Italy are a bit different from the traditional charm bracelets in that the charms from an Italian bracelet can be removed from the bracelet. The charms from an Italian bracelet are soldered to a flattish link which can be detached from the bracelet. These bracelets are ideal to be used as trendy jewelry and are generally made from stainless steel which is hypo-allergenic.

How much do you pay for this ‘charming’ piece of trendy jewelry?

Charm bracelets can vary from really cheap ones to extremely expensive ones. Of course all of this depends on the materials that the bracelet and the charms are made of. Charms made out of sterling silver are not so expensive; however you can also get charms made out of 18k gold and adorn it with diamonds and precious stones. Italian charm bracelets are a much more affordable option for trendy jewelry as they won’t make a hole in your pocket. The cost of the bracelet will depend on the number of charms that are attached to it.
