If charm bracelets are one of your fashion staples, you’re in good company. Celebs across the world, from Kate Middleton to Kourtney Kardashian, are known to don their choice of these glittering accessories to complete their outfits. But, aside from looking fabulous, have you ever thought about what the charms you wear say about you? Are you into the charm bracelet trend?
Specialist jewellery website https://www.kiguoflondon.com/knows a thing or two about what these trinkets represent. Keep reading to find out more about what it has to say about the meaning of some of the most popular designs.
You won’t get any prizes for guessing that heart-shaped charms represent love, passion and affection. This distinctive symbol has been used since the middle ages to showcase romance and devotion. When these trinkets have an arrow passing through them, they’re said to symbolise a captured heart.
One of the most meaningful types of charm, the locket has traditionally been used to keep treasured memories in. Larger designs sometimes encase miniature photographs of loved ones or other small items of sentimental value. These pieces of jewellery are often passed down from one generation to the next as heirlooms.
The feather has a less universal meaning and can represent different things to different people. For example, it can symbolise protection, lightness, freedom and truth. To other wearers, these charms are used to represent faith and prayer, while some people see them as a representation of good luck.
Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is typically used to symbolise different generations within a family, but it can also be a symbol for the interconnectedness of all things on Earth. These charms are sometimes seen to showcase wisdom, harmony and healing too.
Used to show love and protection, lots of people see angel wings as a sign that the wearer has a guardian angel watching over them and looking out for them. They also have spiritual connections and can be used to symbolise love and caring.

What a really interesting post this is. I liked finding out what different charms connect to. I will be sneaky looking at who has what on theirs now haha
Glad you found the post interesting.
I love charm bracelets and I do have a few of them with different charms. I am drawn to lockets and wings. Lockets to keep something of great sentimental value for me, and wings to represent freedom to be me.
Ah nice. I love charm bracelets too!
I love it when charms actually mean something and are not just a collection of pretty trinkets!
Yes me too.
I’ve never actually had a charm bracelet but if I did I think I’d definitely have a heart and a feather on it. The one in your photo is gorgeous!
I love charm bracelets and have a feather and angel wings on mine to remind me of Joseph.
That sounds really lovely. I love charm bracelets a lot.
I love the idea of having charms. It is like having a tattoo but as you are too scared to have it, you go with the charm. I have a camera charm as I was always been a photography enthusiast.
Oh nice. I love the sound of a camera charm.
I have a heart and wings! And of course, a nameplate that says my name and that of the kids. 😀 I love the charms on my bracelet!
I love charms on bracelets too!
I love my charm bracelet and my kids buy me a new charm for every birthday so they are always meaningful
I never had charm bracelet but would love to have wings and feather one
A wing and feather charm bracelet would be great.
I also love charm bracelets! I think the most popular is the Heart charm. I’d like to have an Angel wings charm.
The Angel Wings Charm is dead pretty.
I used to wear a charm bracelet all the time, but I’ve not had it on for years. I always had charms that represented things that happened throughout the year. So when my daughter was christened, I bought a church charm, when my tortoise got stolen, I bought a tortoise charm, and when I fell in love, I bought a heart <3
Oh nice. Thanks for sharing your charm story Louise xx
Bit late to the party, but this post is definitely a wonderful insight into the charm bracelets I’ve inherited, I’ve been saving up ready to add my own charms like the women in my family before me, there’s some wonderfully obscure charms on them, like bird cages, treasure chests, rabbits, even a bright orange carrot. I think I’m going to be adding a crown to one of them, and the symbols for faith hope and charity on the other. xx
Oh nice. Thanks for stopping by.
