How To Buy Charm Bracelets

May 31, 2008
Throughout hundreds of years, charm bracelets have been part of many different cultures. The bracelets started off as trinkets of power that that would keep away evil spirits and bad luck. But throughout time, as superstitions faded, people would simply wear them for fashion purposes. Or they were also given as gifts and a reminder of someone's affections. These bracelets would be worn around a person's wrist. Some people would even have chains and fobs that would hang from the bracelets. It could be something very generic to something quite personal.

Even though charm bracelets have been around for ages, the new trend of bracelets offered by higher end couture brands in the fashion world have breathed new life into an old art form for jewelry. The simpler ones bear the brand name stamped on the chain. As with anything high-end, there are always the lower tiers offered for more affordable prices. Charm bracelets are available in all metals - silver, gold, platinum, or even just sterling steel. Some are even made with string or wires made by arts-and-crafters. Charms especially made for children and pets are also offered. And Asian bracelets that have magnets attached at the ends that meet are meant to help with the body's proper blood flow.

Besides the obvious gesture of having a sweet message or a name engraved into the charm bracelet, there are other ways to make them more personal. If you feel you have the time and wish to give it that extra touch of love, you can always make a charm bracelet yourself. There are many tutorials and how-tos available for you to quickly learn to create your own. Making your own would show that you have put some time and thought into your gift, which can be more valuable than simply buying one from a store. For more information on how to create your own bracelets, there are many books available on the various patterns. Or you can just Google it on the internet for a quick lesson.

If you do decide to opt for buying a charm bracelet, first browse the internet for the style and color from any brand, then try to take note of the various prices, and compare before buying. You may be able to find something similar or even better from a no-name brand. Some sites offer large discounts for the same products, so be sure to shop around. Also, be certain to make sure the substance that the bracelet is made of is what you want and not an imitation. Buying a bracelet from a mall or store would be advantageous in that you could check to make sure the bracelet is the correct size and made of the proper material.
