Charm Box

History of Charms

Although it is almost impossible to determine when charm bracelets appeared in their modern form, charms, miniature figurines and decorative pendants used to be worn as an amulet to deter evil spirits and bad luck. Indeed the carrying of charms to ward off evil dates back to the Neolithic era in which hunters would carry interesting stones and trinkets for good luck. 

The role of charms, however changed over time from that of practical use and as a means of warding off evil, to a purely aesthetic one. Queen Victoria’s own fascination with charms, jewellery and pendants made charm bracelets enormously popular amongst the gentry of the time, as a luxurious fashion items. 

Each charm holds its own unique secret story as to why it was created and who it was created for. The mystery of pieces found in the charm box is endless, with charms ranging from antique high carat mourning pieces to 1970's symbolic good luck charms. Updated with new finds all the time, but once they are gone they are gone.
