The story of charm bracelets begins many years ago…
In ancient Egypt, the dead were buried with identifying charm bracelets and necklaces so that they could be recognized and taken to their worthy place in the Afterlife. Throughout the Middle Ages, charms were considered to have protective properties. They served as amulets to protect the wearer and destroy the enemy. Later, charms became a means of identity, reflecting family origin and political standing. In later years, Queen Victoria brought a new wave of popularity to the charm bracelet.
From then onwards, charms became an item of decorative fashion jewelry worn as a bracelet. They were added to the bracelet to entertain, amuse or to record life’s milestones or other major events. A charm bracelet tells a story. It reflects your priorities – the milestones that you wish to perpetuate, the symbols that are meaningful to you and the messages that you wish to incorporate in your life. They are nostalgic memories of life’s milestones and major events in your life.
