Charmed

Many years ago I started a sterling silver charm bracelet.  I would pick up a charm or two whenever I was on vacation or went somewhere special.  When I studied abroad in college and traveled all over Europe, my charm bracelet filled up pretty fast. I pulled it out of my jewelry box the other day and instantly all those memories came right back.  I love that a piece of jewelry can be so sentimental and bring back a million childhood memories.

Now that I'm married I wanted to start the tradition all over again on a new bracelet. But this time I want to start a gold one.  I was shopping on Charmco.com and put together a virtual charm bracelet

I love all of these!  Each of these charms would fit me perfectly.

Do you have a charm bracelet?  Whats your favorite charm?

My husband gave me a gold charm bracelet for my 30th birthday. I love all of my charms! Besides my kids' initials, my favorite is a pearl charm surrounded by a gold dragon(my birth stone and zodiac animal) given by my mom.

I love this idea, especially since you're just married and starting a "new" life with your husband.

When my grandmother passed away a few years ago I inherited her gold charm bracelet which was filled with charms from her life with my grandfather. It had really special cute charms on it like she turned my grandfather's fraternity pin into a charm. It is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I hope to start my own one day!!

I love it! I have one too, and my favorite charm is a vintage one picked up at a flea market: a medal that says "Miss Teenage Columbus" on one side and "Finalist 1967 Tana Mendes". For some reason it always makes me smile.

My mom had a gold charm bracelet and I always loved it. Maybe I should start one too!

I love my charm bracelet and had pretty much forgotten about it until this post haha :) Thanks for the reminder! I'm going to get it out of the depths of my jewelry drawer.

My mother has a charm bracelet from when she and my father lived in Europe for four years right after they married. The charms she collected there are so interesting. I love your gold choices! You should share your silver charms with us!
