CHARM BRACELET- HISTORY ON YOUR WRIST

Wearing a charm bracelet is like wearing your personal or other’s history on your arm. There’s always an interesting story attached to it. It is probably the only piece of jewelry that really shows the wearer’s personality and character.

Originally it was used as a utility. The Ancient Egyptian, Assyrians, Babylonians, and Persians used to repel evil. Christians used it as an ID during the Roman Empire to get access to the secret forbidden prayer gathering. But it was only during the Victorian era when it became decorative fashion accessories with personal meaning when Queen Victoria herself used it as a jewelry. Queen Victoria (1819–1901) began wearing a gold chain with lockets that contained portraits of her family. Charm bracelets exploded during the end of WWII. Soldiers who traveled Europe and Asia purchased little souvenirs trinkets as gifts to bring home to the women in their lives who then attached these to their bracelets.

Now charm bracelets are not only worn as beautiful fun fashion items but also something that has sentimental meaning. Whether it’s vintage or new, expensive or reasonable women love mixing them up.

Here are some gorgeous charm bracelets.
