Baby Boomers probably remember collecting charms to put on their charm bracelets. These were often given as gifts to remember special occasions, such as graduations, birthdays and anniversaries.
For instance, when I made my First Holy Communion, my grandmother gave me a sterling silver charm of a chalice to mark this momentous event.
Charm bracelets have been worn for centuries. They became extremely popular during the 1950’s and 1960’s, because they were worn by a number of Hollywood stars. They seemed to fade in popularity during the 1970’s. (That’s when my own charm bracelet was packed away.)
Now, once again, they’ve become fashionable.
One new trend is that you don’t have to buy an empty bracelet and then purchase individual charms, which need to be attached by a jeweler. Many bracelets are now sold complete with charms, and focus on a certain theme, such as cats, which you can see below.
Silver Cat Charm Bracelet
This very dignified silver-toned cat charm bracelet has a magnetic clasp that makes it easy to put on and take off. This bracelet comes in a gift box, since it would make a great present for a cat lover.
Unique Gifts for a Cat Lover
The charm bracelets of an earlier generation tended to be just one color, and the individual charms typically dangled from the wire. This updated version shows playful cats of different colors. This bracelet is 7.5-inches long.
Cat Charms Bracelets
This beautiful piece of jewelry shows a repeating pattern of playful cats. One kitty is trying to get into a fishbowl, another is batting a ball of yarn and another is playing with a butterfly. This bracelet is made by Heirloom Finds, which makes an extensive line of vintage-style jewelry. This beautiful bracelet comes in a gift box.
Charm Bracelets Cats
These dangling cat charms remind me of the charm bracelet I used to wear as a child. Except that this silver-plated bracelet has a modern twist, with beautiful beads on the band. The charms are cat related. I love the fish bone charm toward the right. The name of this piece of art is “Cats Rule.” If you’ve read this far, you probably agree.
