Need a jewellery update? Add a simple charm. Our fashion team have picked out the very best...
The interest for jewellery with meaning is having a resurgence and nothing conveys this trend more than a charm. Talismans, amulets, call them what you will, these keepsakes exist in virtually every culture and have done for thousands of years. Here we’ve focused on the meanings behind them, and whether it’s a protective charm to ward off negativity or a bee to represent fertility this is a thoughtful gift that will resonate with even your hardest to buy for friend.
Charms make ideal birthday presents and are a great option for bridesmaid and flower girl gifts – did you know that the Victorians had wedding charm cakes where the bridesmaids would pick a ribbon to pull from the cake and out popped a charm? How gorgeous!
Or are you looking for a little boost yourself? Many believe in the powers of charms, and if you choose one you love and wear it every day, something good has to come your way, right?! Not only that, our pick of the best charms has something to suit everyone, and they’re as beautiful as they are spiritual. Wear them as a necklace, or add them to your favourite bracelet and wait for their powers to start working!
