When my mother was a child, she collected and was gifted the most elaborate charms for her children’s charm bracelet. I was often fascinated as a girl to all the shapes and styles of her beautiful children’s charms she received to mark a birthday, festival, special occasion or milestone in her life. She would tell me a story about each of her special charms and why she had received it. Her piece of jewellery was literally like pages of history in her life.
While the exact origins of the charm bracelet are speculated, research goes back to the Medieval Period. Medieval Knights created elaborate bracelets made from seashells, wood or clay and wore them during battles to help protect them against negative forces and fight off evil spirits. They also believed it would bring good luck to whoever wore it.
The eternally famous Queen of Charm, Queen Victoria, brought keepsake charms back to life in the 20th century with a luxurious jewellery style that quickly became very popular, as she wore lockets, family crests, and beads on her bracelet and necklaces.

The Future of the Charm Bracelet
We can’t exactly tell you what the future holds for the charm bracelet… but we can tell you that while the charm bracelet started a VERY long time ago, we don’t see it going out of style any time soon, especially children’s and teen’s charm bracelets.
The charm bracelet holds a different meaning to everyone, and there are multiple designs and colours of sterling silver charms to choose from at My Little Silver.
Girls often appreciate those things that they can keep forever. We designed My Little Silver’s Children’s Charm Bracelets to keep and share her memories, with charms that are durable to last a lifetime!
We created our children’s charm collection to continue the age-old tradition of creating new memories through her growing collection, and I am so excited to introduce new designs I have coming up in my collection for 2019!
We just LOVE to keep you on your toes and guessing at My Little Silver ;)
