Charm Bracelets – What are Charm Bracelets and How to Choose the Best Charm Bracelet?

A charm bracelet is a bracelet that is worn around the wrist with different pendants, or charms on it. These decorative pendants show off a person’s decorative style, and can be personalized to the individual or even the outfit or occasion. They can even signify a person’s lifestyle. Charm bracelets come in all different shapes and sizes, as well as price ranges.

The first thing you will want to consider is the bracelet itself. Some bracelets are made for certain charms, while others are more universal. You want to choose a bracelet that is loose enough so that when charms are added it doesn’t get too tight. The bracelet itself can also be changed out if the wrist grows, such as a teenager to an adult size, because more charms are interchangeable.

Look at the clasp on the charm bracelet. You want to choose a bracelet that has a sturdy clasp so that it does not fall off and you lose your charms. Try different styles of clasps and bracelets to make sure you are getting one that you can easily take on and off, but it doesn’t come apart by movement.

Next you will want to think about the charms you want to add onto your bracelet. There are a couple things you will want to include onto your bracelets, charms and even spacers. Spacers are used to avoid clutter on your bracelet, and help them look more even. Spacers come in solid colors and metals, as well as fun designs. If you do not like a lot of charms that dangle, you may choose the use of spacers.
