One of the most precious pieces of jewellery to me will always be my beautiful charms bracelet! White and gold with various small pendants encircling my wrist, it always makes me feel special. My bracelet has lots of trinkets such as the Eiffel Tower motivating me to travel, a heart reminding me to have faith, a butterfly and a rose to show the beauty of nature, etc.
A charms bracelet has to represent the important aspects of the owner's life. The origination of this beautiful jewellery started centuries ago as an amulet to ward off evil. The charms were then made from animal bones, shells and clay. Along with the spiritual significance, charms bracelets have emerged as a fashion statement throughout the world. These are made from silver, gold, platinum, or even ribbons and the newest trend are interchangeable charms. This works really well for the customers as you could select your trinkets and add them and have your very own bracelet dangling from your wrist. While watching a sports match, you would notice players also wearing good luck charms sometimes. The reasons may be luck or faith, but charms are everywhere.
Messages are also encrypted or written on these bracelets sometimes to give you a daily dose of positive thinking and reality checks. I've read, "Love conquers all", "Faith and hope are milestones to keep living, "The antidote to fear is love" , "Let go of the past" etc. Charms can be the peace symbol, a dove, a turtle, a teddy bear, an elephant, a leaf, a bag, a ship, a star, a bell…whao! The list can really go on and on. Ask yourself what represents who you are and your life and go shop. Find yourself the charms bracelet that is made just for you. It's out there. In all the colors, fabrics, sizes and stones you can think of. Gift one to your daughter, girlfriend, niece, mom or wife. You know them well, pick the charms and get them a bracelet. It would be one very special gift.
A lot of companies around the globe manufacture this jewellery. You can get them as cheap as you would want or even go extravagant and buy a real expensive one, it all depends on what you want. As time passes, the reasons to make, buy and wear them will always be protect, inspire and adorn us. Charming isn't it?
