Options for attaching charms
Traditional charms usually have an open jump ring that can be soldered closed on to a bracelet, however these days charms can be worn as pendants or earrings, or used in all sort of ways to tell a story.
There are many ways to attach a charm or turn it in to a pendant and the most popular options are provided in the ADD-ON section at the bottom of each charm description. If you don't see the charm attaching option you want please contact us and we will be happy to help.
Charms or Pendants
If you plan to wear a charm as a pendant you can either have the jump ring soldered to your chain by a jeweller after purchase or you can choose one of the following options to be added to your charm before it is despatched.
LINK LOCKS are very secure ways to lock charms into place on a chain, or create a secure loop to instantly turn a charm into a pendant that a chain can be threaded through. Link Locks are available in sterling silver or 9ct yellow gold and can be added instantly to your order.
CLIP-ON CLASPS are a great way to create a charm or pendant that can be clipped straight on to a necklace or chain and worn right away. This option also lets you change charms as desired.
SPLIT RINGS are like tiny little key rings that replace the charm jump ring and can be used to join the charm to a chain. Split rings can pull apart, but worn with care they will keep your charm in place.
HOOKS can be added to any of the charms in the Traditional Charm Range to create interesting earrings with special meaning for the wearer.
KEYRINGS can be personalised in sterling silver by adding meaningful symbols or charms to any of Oh My Giddy Aunt's options
BOOK MARKS with a meaningful charm will be treasured gifts for all sorts of occasions from little 'thinking of you' gifts on a tassel, through to sterling silver milestone gifts.
Please note, there is no absolutely indestructible way to attach charms. All metal jewellery can break if it is treated too roughly. The rule of thumb is that the more moving pieces a piece of jewellery has, the more care should be taken when wearing and storing.
