I’m a little bit obsessed with the charm bracelet lately. While its popularity ebbs and flows, this classic piece of jewelry never seems to go out of style. In fact, the humble, recession-proof charm bracelet has recently experienced a revival as females of all ages and tastes gravitate towards more emotionally significant and personal jewelry.
In her book Charmed Bracelets, jewelry designer Tracey Zabar refers to the charm bracelet as “history on a wrist” and explores its colorful origins dating back to the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs. Charm bracelets have always been a lovely way to spark conversation and tell the story of a life. They make a unique and meaningful gift for a mother, daughter, friend or significant other.
Park City Jewelers on Main Street has unique charms to commemorate a ski trip or capture a passion for winter sports. And I was surprised to discover exquisite bracelets and charms at Overstock.com (pictured below).
