How Charming!

I've recently become enamored with the idea of getting a charm bracelet, and I do NOT mean one of those Pandora charm bracelets.  I just love the idea of a wrist full of jangling, dangling charms to remind you of trips taken, memories made, and milestones celebrated.

I was feeling like maybe I'm a little late to the game, like you're supposed to start collecting charms as a child, but then Camilla gave Princess Shinylocks a charm bracelet as a wedding gift.  If the Duchess of Perfection can wear a charm bracelet as an adult, then so can I.

What do you think? Should I go for it?  Do any of you have charm bracelets? Do tell!

Yes! I love my bracelet...just started it last year.

Here is a picture. Most of my charts are from family and we made them into charms.

too funny you posted this I was JUST telling my husband this past weekend that he could start me a new charm bracelet for Valentines day. I have a sterling one that is filled, but I think its time I start a big girl gold one :)

Yes, start one right away & I recommend sentimental charms! My grandmother started one for me when I was young & it includes few charms from her childhood bracelet. I love it and wear it non-stop!

I also received a heart charm bracelet with my daughter's initials and birthdaythat I love.

I love that you clarified you didn't mean one of those Pandora bracelets. I'm also wanting a proper, non-Pandora one. We are indeed - what's the phrase? - sisters from another mister or whatever.
