This beautiful vintage charm bracelet is choc full of rare and interesting vintage charms and would make the perfect "something old" for any blushing bride!
The bracelet itself is an unusual style made from 9 individual bar-like links. As well as being exceedingly stylish the added benefit of this is that it's very easy to alter and make smaller should you need to. It features 17 fun, excellent quality vintage charms.
The charms themselves are all solid Silver, not hollow, so they have stood up well to the test of time. 15 are un-marked but have been tested as Silver, whilst the roller and the wheel-barrow are hallmarked 1948!
Amongs the charms are:
a roller, a siamese cat, a boy, Nefertiti, a koala, an American Indian head, a shoe, a monkey, a boot, a windmill, a wheel-barrow, a barrel, a traditional folk lady, a pig, a gnome, a teapot and a cow. The roller, wheel-barrow and wild-mill all have charming moving parts.
"Charm bracelets" are called such as they are said to bring love, luck & happiness. Amulets and miniature pendants were worn throughout the ages as far back as 600 – 400 BC, from Babylonians to Egyptians, and from Victorians to the present day. And we can see their appeal!
Add charms, take them away and swap them around to produce any number of unique looks.
