Charm Bracelets

Charm bracelets are a little bit of history worn on your wrist. The charms collected by a lady tell a story about her thoughts, her travels and things she holds as precious. Some are engraved to mark a memorable event, others are souvenirs of special places she has visited, and still others are vicarious images of places and people in her dreams. I love to look for themes and connections among the charms.

The unique charm bracelets of Elizabeth Taylor are commemorations and collections of places, events and whimsies in her life. While her bracelets are precious metals and stones by the likes of Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, here at Vintages we have several nice charm bracelets from unknown people and jewelers that still tell a story.

This bracelet has 27 silver charms with a Southwestern theme • Including a turtle box, several with turquoise stones, western gear and American Indian items. ($395.00)
I have not figured the theme out for this bracelet. It has a few college items (sorority charm, an Oregon Duck and a mortar board) as well as a US Navy ring and a pineapple. ($95)
This charm bracelet has some interesting travel related items • Including some old British coins, an airplane, jeep, horse and mule for transportation, and a cute little red plastic googly fella. ($195)
Here is an anniversary charm bracelet. I guess these represent some memories of their married life together. ($95)
