Liven Up Your Charm Bracelet!
Charm bracelets can be full of wonderful memories and loving, thoughtful gifts. They really are cute little jewellery treasures. That’s wonderful.
The downside to these pretty accessories is that the charms tend to catch on thing, pull at knitted jerseys, and rip your nylon leggings. They can even end up scratching your keyboard as you type and generally just getting in the way. So what can you do?
This is where charm necklaces can become really cool. They are highly versatile in length and creativity and overall make a fantastic accessory to an outfit. Check out these three reasons charm necklaces are a great choice:
- You can display your charms proudly on a necklace and people will see and enjoy them more easily.
- With a necklace you won’t have the negatives of a vintage art deco bracelet such as hooking on clothing or scratching things.
- You’re more likely to wear your charms if they’re on a necklace.
A Classic Charm Necklace
A classic charm necklace is well spaced and the chain is longer in length. Don’t place charms too close together, but redistribute them in a spaced out way and allow for a longer length necklace. A popular length is usually 24” for a charm necklace, which usually sits just above the mid-point of the chest.
Charm Necklaces Are Very Versatile
Shorter charm necklaces are also very cool. Try combining two charm bracelets, keeping the charms exactly where they are. Use a clasp such as a lobster clasp to connect the bracelets together and form a shorter charm necklace. It’s that easy to be stylish!
It’s Up To You When It Comes to Length
It really is up to you how long you’d like your charm necklace. A thin long chain, with a large end ring that you can bring the chain back through, will offer great versatility and length for the necklace.
How Choosing the Right Charm Necklace Works
As a necklace gives you the choice of which length you’d prefer to wear, you’re opened up to a whole range of possibilities when it comes to the clothing you can wear with your charm necklace. Long chains connected to combine charm bracelets offer twice as many opportunities to accessorise. If you prefer, you can also take off one of the charm bracelets to create a shorter chain to match your chosen outfit.
What About That Charm Bracelet You Never Wear?
If you have a vintage art deco bracelet that you hardly wear, liven it up by adding new charms and or create a more comfortable selection of charms that won’t get in the way of your day to day activities.
What Makes Charm Necklaces and Bracelets so Special?
Charm necklaces and charm bracelets are an extremely personal statement that depicts what you love and enjoy and your favourite things and places. These items of jewellery can be one of the most cherished family heirlooms that act as reminders of happy family milestones and holidays.
If you find you’re not wearing your charm vintage art deco bracelet nearly enough, consider converting it into a charm necklace that you’ll get more wear out of.
