Charm bracelets have a long history, dating back as far as 2300 BC. The materials used at this time would have been pieces of wood, bone, shell or stone and were given as a gift and worn by both men and women. Charm bracelets have also been found throughout the bronze age and of course in Ancient Eqypt each with the same purpose. Seeing as this piece of jewellery has a vast and varied history that brings us to the modern day, the question remains, why a charm bracelet?
Personalisation- Tells your story
With brands such as Pandora, Chamilia and Thomas Sabo adding to their charm collections each season, there are now an abundance of different charms to choose from. This means that you can pick charms that relate to your own personal experience, telling the story of your life. Perhaps it is accomplishments such as graduating or ticking off events on your bucket list like travelling, there is a charm that will suit your lifestyle. No two charm bracelets are the same as it is a piece of jewellery where you call the shots.
Interchangeable Style- Change your look often
In 2019, style is constantly changing and evolving and we know that there are many individuals that value style and fashion as a priority. As most jewellery can become outdated, or perhaps can only be worn seasonally, charm bracelets can break that boundary. As there are a selection of different styles to choose from, from various brands it means that you can constantly update or change your charm bracelet to suit the look you are going for. The choice doesn’t only come down to the charms themselves but also the different brands that have a charm collection.

Whilst charm bracelets as usually personal to the wearer it is also a good way to connect with family and friends. Charm bracelets make a great gift and not only as a one time gift. As the year passes by you can update your friend or families charm bracelet at pivotal times in their life such as birthdays, valentines day, graduation, mothers day and more.
