Why charm bracelets make great gifts
Charm bracelets have been around for a very long time. The oldest known was discovered in Africa, and dated back to almost 70,000 years ago! It is unknown why they were initially worn, however, speculations vary from religious devotions to aesthetic reasons.
The tradition of modern charm bracelets with a chain link design made from silver or gold originated from the Victorian era. These bracelets grew rapidly in popularity during the 1950’s when actresses began adorning themselves on the big screen, sparking a trend that still hasn’t died down.
Whether it's for a birthday, an anniversary or a graduation, charm bracelets make great gifts. Here’s why:
They hold meaning:
Going back to the root of charm bracelets, their charms usually symbolised certain traits such as love, inspiration and protection. Charms such as four-leaf clovers, anchors and horseshoes are popular and are said to bring the wearer luck. Across the world, evil eye charms such as the Sterling Silver Evil Eye Charm Bracelet and the Sterling Silver Evil Eye Zirconia Hamsa Charm Bracelet were worn to protect wearers from the 'evil eye' curse. These are still popular gifts today.
Charm bracelets are also worn by religious people with symbols of the cross, guardian angels and doves remaining popular among Christians. These gifts are given for christenings and baptisms, in remembrance of loved ones or for comfort during a difficult time. The 9ct Yellow Gold Silver Infused Religious Charm Bracelet makes a great gift for religious family and friends.
They can be personalised:
One of the most endearing features of a charm bracelet is that they can be personalised to mark special occasions. 18th or 21st birthday presents, graduations, marriage and children can all be represented on your charm bracelet. The Personalised Swarovski Crystal Birthstone Bracelet is the perfect gift for mums as they can be personalised with each child’s name and birthstone on a different charm.
Charm bracelets are a beautiful gift for any occasion. They can be passed down from generation to generation and are a sentimental piece of jewellery for the owner due to their unique and personalised designs. Discover the range of charm bracelets available at Bevilles now!
