Typically charms are meant to elicit remembrances; a token of a past trip, a life event, a loved one, a favorite pastime. Bracelets and necklaces with one or many charms have been worn for hundreds of years but high popularity comes and goes with fashion trends. The mid-twentieth century was one of the high times. My mother, sisters, friends, and I each had a charm bracelet (or two!) and would acquire a new addition on gift-receiving occasions. These cherished memories are passed down through generations of daughters and granddaughters. But just hearing the quiet tinkle of a charm bracelet on her wrist makes a girl smile.
