I just love discovering new trend pieces to weave into my every day looks! But as much as I like the new, some fashion accessories will always remain classic must-haves. Charm bracelets, for instance, are one of these timeless pieces – they are hotter than ever!
A quick fun charm history recap!
Bracelets have been around forever, but it was the Egyptians who were the first to start decorating jewelry with charms. Later, Queen Victoria brought the little ornaments back as luxury items. Charms really exploded into mainstream fashion when the first plastic materials were engineered. You could find them in gumball machines, cereal and candy boxes – they were mostly based on comic strips.
After the war, soldiers brought cute trinkets back for their sweethearts and craftsmen began making replicas to put on jewelry. Charm bracelets became popular accessories for girls and women as a way to mark major events like sweet 16th bdays, graduations and travels – like an arm candy scrapbook!
Today top designers, artisanal jewelers, toy developers and people of all ages are making charm jewelry.
Why are charms so hot?
Fashion is all about creative expression. Wearing a charm is a very personal thing; it’s a statement-making accessory. Whether you’re wearing your favorite symbol, zodiac, initials, locket or just a cute little trinket, they can be edgy, fun, and sweet all at once!
With so many cute little charms available – I just can’t make up my mind! The struggle is real, lol… Thankfully, stacking your wrists with charm-loaded bangles is totally in!
Charm them with great accessories!
