Other Types of Charms
Some charms are designed with a big hole in the middle so a chain can be threaded through the charm, rather than attaching the charm to the bracelet. Big Hole or Bead charms have long been popular as they can be slipped onto a bracelet or necklace and added to tell a story with each bead.
Another form of charm is known as an Italian Charm. These are flat, square charms that link together to form a bracelet that looks like a watch band. Worn by men and women these charms tell a very contemporary story and the symbols are often quite modern too.
Some charms are soldered together so they create the links of the bracelet. It takes a little more work and planning to create a linked charm bracelet this way but it can be done and your giddy aunts have several different designs made this way.
Telling the Stories of Life
Charms allow you to tell your story, your way. It is a very personal way to create a keepsake as you choose the number of charms you would like and the symbols and meaning. Some people create a complete bracelet, recording people, places or times. Others choose a Starter Charm Bracelet that can be added to over the years to tell the story as it evolves.
Due to the value of solid gold charms some people collect a charm each year that will be presented on a special occasion - perhaps a significant birthday or a graduation or achievement!
