Diamond Charm Bracelets
Charm bracelets are just the same as regular chain bracelets. However, charm bracelets carry ornaments or “charms” like pendants or trinkets. These charms typically carry sentimental value to their wearer.
Wearing charms began as a form of talisman or amulet to ward off misfortune and evil spirits. Prehistoric humans made their charms using animal bones, clay, and shells. Later on, they learned to use gems, rocks, wood, and metal in their jewelry.
Archeological evidence that dates back 75,000 years was found in the African continent that shells were utilized as adornments. A mammoth tusk with detailed carvings that date back to 30,000 years was found in Germany. Ancient Egyptians wore charms as symbols of luck and for identification. Charms were also used as identification for individuals so that gods may recognize them in the afterlife.
However, not everyone wore charms as bracelets. However, archaeological evidence shows that ancient Persians, Assyrians, and Babylonians wore charms as bracelets. Charms were worn as early as 600 BCE.
During the reign of Queen Victoria, charm bracelets were trendy amongst the European socialites. Queen Victoria is popular for giving out charm bracelets. Also, she was instrumental in the creation of “mourning” charms, which became popular when her husband Prince Albert died. Mourning charms are often charms that contain a small compartment that can accommodate the deceased’s lock of hair or a miniature portrait.
Tiffany and Co. launched their first charm bracelet in 1889. The bracelet is a simple chain bracelet with a heart hanging from it. The bracelet eventually became the most recognizable piece of jewelry for Tiffany today.
