Golden Love: Charm Necklaces

In a world full of tarnished bangles, broken necklaces and piles of other disposable accessories, it is vital that a true fashionista own a few pieces of jewelry with just a little more meaning.

Charm necklaces are a simple way to pull a little personality into your look, connecting your individual style with the important people, places or hobbies that fill your life. You can choose a monogramed necklace with the initials of a grandparent or sibling or instead settle for a printed plate engraved with an inspirational word like this Dogeared Karma Engraved Necklace from ASOS.

With their thin chains and lighter feel, charm necklaces can easily be worn everyday, seeing that they don’t distract from other elements in an outfit. You can even stack two or even three chains of differing lengths as long as each chain only holds a single charm. The look can get a bit messy when your neck looks too crowded with charms.

The real fun in charm necklaces, though, is there ability to spark conversations about what they do or don’t represent. People are genuinely intrigued to know the history of the charms, so don’t be surprised if you get a few questions about just how you came to own such a beautiful gold-plated waffle iron pendant.

A lot of celebs wear charm necklaces, too, with fashion heavy weights like Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Nicole Richie all owning charm necklaces with some form of special meaning.

With the large range of prices for these pieces, your options are limitless. You can purchase a gorgeous West Avenue Jewelry Small Oval Monogram Necklace from Max & Chloe or go for the less pricey Alexis Bittar Horseshoe Charm Necklace from Nordstrom.

So add a little personal touch to your jewelry and invest in a charm necklace or three. You can represent what matters to you most while rocking a piece unique to your inspirations.
