Charm bracelets have been around for ages and are still thought of as a timeless style, hence why they are often heirloom pieces. They usually signify different aspects of the wearers personality and interests. These unique, one-of-a-kind bracelets make for excellent gifts that will leave your loved one touched by the thoughtfulness and detail. We've had the opportunity to make quite a few of these personalized bracelets. Here are some of the creative ideas our customers have had when giving and designing charm bracelets:
For mom or grandma, customize a charm for each of the children or grandchildren. Depending on her style, you can keep it simple with single initials or you can have full names with birth dates and even birthstones. This is a great gift option "from the family" that everyone can take part in.
Create a narrative story with various charms representing monumental events. For example, design charms that mark achievements throughout their schooling and give it to them on graduation day. Or for every birthday design a new charm that symbolizes the past year. Give them a charm on each birthday or wait until a special one and give them the completed bracelet. The example below is a bracelet that we helped a dad create for his daughter. We used our online jewelry designer to customize a variety of different charms for him.
Describe the recipient with each charm. Let the bracelet show their attributes, aspirations, hopes, and dreams. You're sure to leave them speechless with this concept - they will feel complimented and motivated every time they wear it.
Give them a starter charm bracelet. Design one charm to get them started and either you or the recipient can add charms down the road for special occasions.
Looking for a non-traditional design? Add a few charms that represent their hobbies and interests to separate bangles - this way they have the option to wear them all together or individually.

Almost every little girl had the iconic broken heart necklace to share with their best friend. They are a classic and timeless item that even now in 2014 are still as trendy as they were many years ago.
We have seen our customers use this great concept as the perfect gift for their BFF or significant other. While the necklace has the same reminiscent meaning it did as adolescents, making it out of solid silver or gold creates an ironic, but whimsical keepsake. As you can see in the examples above, customers have used the “broken heart” pendants with other shapes like a guitar pick. So, if a heart is a little too cliché for you and your bestie you can choose other shapes to break apart for matching pendants and customize them in a way that symbolizes your relationship.
We recently talked about how you can make your personalized jewelry a little different by off centering the text. Click to see the post about those unique jewelry designs.
Here are two other examples of how a small change like not blackening the text can set your jewelry apart. The absence of the black in the letters softens the look of the charm and makes the text more subtle; an effect that looks distinctively classy.
The charm on the left is a 14K 5/8" Gold Charm with Bail. The text is stamped in our block font.
The charm on the right is a 14K Rectangle Charm that measures 35mm x 11mm. The coordinates are stamped in our script font.
Both charms hang from the 14K 2.8mm Flat Oval Cable Chain.
If you want your text unblackened, just request that in the additional notes before you add the item to your cart or call to place the order over the phone. 912-771-1133
