Charms For Bracelets – What Do You Think?

Posted on 26 February 2011


So what do you think? Do you really think that charms have some type of talisman properties, that they might bring you good luck, or make somebody love you all the more. Well, you probably wouldn’t be alone. Although there really is no proof that any of the above takes place.

Based on early findings and pictures of ancient Egypt, charms for bracelets for life were quite commonplace. Both men and women wore them.

Around the time of Christ, and shortly after his death, Christians started to wear the sign of the fish in order to show a common faith. Jewish believers at that time and even earlier would write Scripture on tiny pieces of paper and wear them on bracelets or around her neck as a way of keeping their faith close to them.

But up to the Middle Ages superstition took hold once again and bracelets were thought to have some type of supernatural power that would be of some benefit to the wearer. Today we know that this is not the case.

It wasn’t until the late 1800s and early 1900s that this supernatural belief was about to change. At that time charms for bracelets would begin to hold small paintings or photographs of loved ones along with pieces of your hair in order to keep the memory of the ones that the people cared for close to them.

It was during the first and second world wars that soldiers would pick up small trinkets or souvenirs and bring them home to their families to be worn around her wrists as charms. This continued through the 50s as many young women began to wear them. Then they fell out of favor.

Now again charm bracelets are all the rage. The Pandora bracelet and the Italian bracelet are both variations of your typical charm bracelet and both are extremely popular.

Today’s charm bracelets can range from low-cost silverplate to very high cost white gold or platinum bracelets and charms. Charm bracelets of this quality go well with your Tahitian pearl pendant.
