Charm bracelets make wonderful gifts, because you can create them to celebrate a person’s interests and hobbies. At Neustaedter’s Fine Jewelers, we can help you assemble a charm bracelet that follows a particular theme like “school teachers” or “pet lovers.” Or you can start a bracelet with just one charm, and add on every birthday or Christmas.
When it comes to charms, the possibilities really are endless. So rather than fan the pages of a catalogue, or scroll on the internet, here are a few suggestions to help you create a bracelet that is both lovely and personal.
You can start a bracelet with just one charm, knowing that you will add additional charms in the future. These are great for children or a young person who has a whole lifetime of special moments ahead of them.
Charm bracelets are also a great way to celebrate a particular theme. Once you decide on the theme, say “travel” for example, you can look for charms representing famous landmarks from the cities visited.
If the person you are shopping for took a trip to London, you could choose charms representing Big Ben, the Changing of the Guard, or Buckingham Palace.
But what really makes charm bracelets special, are charms that represent personal experiences. Again, if it’s a travel themed bracelet, you might choose charms representing some extra special experiences. Did you befriend someone local? Maybe you want to remember a particular meal or glass of wine you enjoyed at a local restaurant. Did you attend a concert or visit a museum that left an impression? Was the excursion a way to celebrate a milestone, like a birthday, engagement or anniversary?
We Can Make Charms Too!
If you can’t find a charm that represents a particular thing or experience, not to worry. Our Master Hand Engraver, Richard Neustaedter, can create one for you. Maybe it’s a just a simple date representing a birthday or anniversary. He could also engrave a monogram, or a short personal message.
Add a Photo
You might also consider adding a photo charm to your bracelet, like these we have in our fine jewelry showroom. Other photo charms can also be ordered. If we don’t have what you are looking for onhand, we have catalogues with thousands of other charms for you to see.
Once you select your charms, you might decide to wrap your gift in a way that matches your theme. If not, the team at Neustaedter’s Fine Jewelry will be happy to wrap it for you.
In some ways, charm bracelets are one of the most creative gifts you can give, limited only by your imagination. They make great gifts for anybody of any age. If you have questions about creating a charm bracelet, contact us here, or stop by our store at Big Bend and Dougherty Ferry Rd. and talk to one of our jewelry experts.
Charm Bracelets for Pet Lovers
Another common theme for charm bracelets are pets. You can choose charms that are breed specific, like a Poodle or a Beagle. You might also have a pet’s birthdate, or date of adoption engraved on a plain charm.
Adding some inspiration to a charm bracelet is another popular idea. We can create charms with Baptism or Confirmation dates, or a favorite Bible verse.
Inspirational charms might also include religious symbols of different faiths, quotes, or words of encouragement. These are great gifts to honor religious milestones, or just to support a loved one going through a difficult time.
If after searching you can’t find the right sentiment, not to worry. Richard Neustaedter can always create a special hand engraved charm (or pendant) with an inspirational theme. Bring your ideas to Neustaedter’s Fine Jewelers and we can sketch out some suggestions for you to consider. Richard Neustaedter will then turn those sketches into a one-of-a-kind charm or pendant.
Charm bracelets make great gifts for anybody of any age. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about giving a bracelet, or maybe just starting one for yourself.
