Fashion Friday: Simply Charming
Since I was a little girl I have always had a love for jewelry and charm bracelets have always been one of my favorite accessories. A charm bracelet can tell a story since you can find a charm to symbolize just about anything you can imagine.
Charm bracelets have been worn for decades and will continue to be adorned on many women's wrists. Many decades ago people wore charm bracelets to ward off evil spirits. In Ancient Egypt they were used to bring good luck. Queen Victoria wore them as a fashion statement and they then began being worn by the European noble classes. During World War II soldiers brought home charms as trinkets for their loved ones. In the 50's and 60's teenagers would wear charm bracelets to record events in their life. Even though the charm bracelet has evolved over time they have remained a timeless staple accessory.
If you ask a woman about her charm bracelet she may have a story. The next time you see someone wearing a charm bracelet ask them if the charms have any significance, you may just learn something new about that person.
