I love it all – be it an old-school charm bracelet or a layered charm necklace (I think a charm necklace is perhaps the younger or more modern take on a classic charm bracelet.) One day I might be wearing a big, chunky statement necklace full of affordable charms. And the next day, a more delicate, fine gold necklace with just 2 or 3 vintage charms.
I love the idea of adding to your charm collection when you travel or as a way to celebrate a big life event like a birth or graduation. (Most jewelers can add engravings of dates, monograms or small messages to charms.)
While I love building a collection of charms, I think it can be hard find quality sources for where to buy beautiful gold charms and necklaces. So I wanted to pop in here and share a list of jewelry brands I recommend for vintage and new gold charms. I hope this range of options (offering a wide array of price-points) will be helpful.
And let me know – did I miss any great jewelry sources??!
I am always bookmarking jewelry brand and ideas like these to my ‘one day wish list!’ So please send any and all ideas my way!
