Charms are the new beads. For the longest time, charm bracelets have been a cute, sentimental way to collect jewelry to commemorate memorable occasions or receive meaningful gifts from friends and family. Sterling silver charm jewelry is really gaining traction now, and these dazzling dangles are not just meant for bracelets anymore. Their versatile jump rings and lobster claw clasps make them the perfect addition to any necklace, bracelet, anklet, or even compatible rings.
Sterling silver charms come in all shapes and sizes, from engravable discs to nautical shapes, and even some bizarre concepts like a moose on a rocking horse (via Lovelyish). Personalized charms take meaningful gifting to a whole new level. Not only can you engrave a loved one’s name onto a silver charm, but you can engrave an entire photo! With laser engraving technology, the charm is your canvas.
If you’re just in it for the style, you should consider pre-assembled charm bracelets, but your options are endless if you opt to build your own charm bracelet. Pandora-compatible Oriana bracelets and charms are another charm jewelry option. These bracelets get filled with beads rather than traditional charms for a more modern look that keeps the same traditional sentimental meaning behind charm bracelets.
Charm rings are a slightly more unconventional take on charm jewelry. While most of these rings are not built for interchangeable charms, these rings come equipped with dangling charms that are surefire attention grabbers.
