Charm Bracelets

One trend that has become a statement piece in past few seasons is the charm bracelet. Working its way up from its humble beginnings as the accessory of choice among teens, the charm bracelet is well on its way to becoming a timeless treasure. It is suitable for any occasion, wearable at any stage in your life and it is ultimately a statement of originality.charm braceletFrom pricey, glittery pieces adorned with many a precious stone to a kooky collection of homemade trinkets; there is a wide range of possibility when it comes to choosing a charm bracelet that is just right for you. We all remember trading friendship bracelets as kids, those colourful kitschy creations that were a hallmark of friendship among young girls. Fast forward a few years and pop culture seems to have caught on, learning a lesson or two from the classroom. Charm bracelets have been a staple accessory in a number of fashion trends; they were seen both on the runway and off. Today it is a fashion staple, worn by everyone, from the hobo chic girls who layer on accessories to dress up their scruffy street style to; the colourful and extravagant charm bracelets on bohemian belles in their billowy dresses.

We see it even on the wrists of high powered executives, topping off a well put together work outfit with a subtle but unique charm bracelet. The trend among the Hollywood elite has been to customise their charm bracelets by adding a unique trinket or something that represented important people or events in their life. You could easily follow suit and add a personal touch to your charm bracelet by adding your birthstone or a disc engraved with your initials. Adding bits from other pieces of jewellery is also a novel idea for a truly original charm bracelet. We all have broken necklaces or that one earring whose pair just refuses to be found, why not incorporate into your custom timeless piece.

The charm bracelet is well on its way to becoming a classic in its own right. It is a fashion must have, very much like a perfectly tailored white shirt or the black dress that is suitable for almost any occasion.
