History of Charms and Charm Bracelets
The practice of carrying a charm to afford protection and ward off evil has been around since the times of our earliest ancestors. Early man would pick up and carry around any striking and unusual stones or other natural objects that he found in order to keep himself safe. The Ancient Egyptians wore beautiful charms made of gold, and set with turquoise, lapis lazuli and coloured paste during their lives and also had them wrapped into their mummy bandages to protect them in death.
They were also very important in medieval times, when knights would carry a treasured talisman with them into battle as an aid against their enemies. Charms were also carried for protection from illnesses such as the Black Death, and in medieval times they would also have incantations said over them to imbue them with extra power.
It was Queen Victoria of England who made wearing charms as decorative jewelry popular, and the Victorians would hang glass beads, tiny lockets and other miniatures onto bracelets and necklaces. Jewelry charms as we know them today emerged during the Second World War, when soldiers in the field would have local craftsmen create miniatures of everyday objects from precious metals.
The soldiers would then give these trinkets to their wives or sweethearts, who would start collecting them on a chain bracelet. Since the 1950’s collecting charms to create a bracelet has never gone out of fashion, and nowadays it is also very trendy to have a single charm on a bracelet, bangle or necklace, or to hang one from a mobile phone.
Angel charms make a lovely gift and if you have a relative or cherished friend, who is a collector, then why not give them their own special angel to add to their collection?
