A silver charm bracelet is a gift that grows in value over the years as memories accrue. Though you can certainly buy some lovely bracelets that come complete with a collection of charms, for me, the act of collecting them is what gives them their special significance. Each little piece of silver has a meaning, and what you end up with is a record of your life.

The problem, of course, is keeping your collection within bounds. There are so many charms to choose from that a great deal of self-discipline is needed if you don't want to have to carry your arm in a sling! What would you like on your silver charm bracelet? A birthstone pacifier might commemorate the birth of your child. An artist's palette will keep the dream alive while you labor in Accounts Receivable. A key marks the celebration of your new home. Whatever you want, you can find it.

Themed Silver Charm Bracelets

A silver charm bracelet is also a lovely gift when the charms are chosen by the giver. Such thoughtfulness shows that you have paid special attention to the recipient. For a friend who travels, perhaps you'll choose an airplane, a palm tree, a hatbox and a camera. The gourmet cook will enjoy a bracelet with a skillet, an egg whisk, and a tiny pepper mill with a handle that turns. Or give a new mother a bracelet with a heart engraved with the baby's name and birth date, a silver shoe, a horoscope sign, a rattle with a birthstone, and a rocking horse. You can even get silver charms with photographs etched on them.

Charm bracelets never go out of style. How could they, when they aren't just a pretty trinket, but a collection of memories? If you don't have a charm bracelet, start one now, or start one for someone you love.
