Charms are little symbols we use to tell stories of people. places or precious moments in sterling silver or solid gold.  Today, these charming little symbols can also be worn as pendants, earrings, cufflinks, rings, brooches or pins and  attached in many different ways.
On each Oh My Giddy Aunt's charm product description page you will find an "Add On" section with several different attaching options so you can add charms to bracelets, necklaces or keyrings.

Link Locks

Link Locks are available in sterling silver or 9ct yellow gold and can be added instantly to your order.   


Clip-On Clasps
