Charm Buying Guide: Choosing a Charm for Someone Else

Thinking of a gift for someone special is no easy task. For one, you want to give the impression that the gift is well thought out and that you considered the person’s lifestyle and personality in buying the item. For people who want to create an unforgettable gift-giving experience, sentimental gifts are the best choice.

They are called sentimental gifts because they take the receiver back to a special moment in their lives that bring them nostalgia. One example of a sentimental gift that is both meaningful and personal is a charm that the receiver can add to his or her bracelet to signify special occasions and important things in the wearer’s life.

To help you determine which silver charms to give to the special people in your life, Ross from Fraser Ross put together this guide on which charms are best to give on certain occasions:

 

For your newborn daughter

You don’t have to make your newborn baby wear jewelry at such an early stage, but you can buy a charm bracelet that they will be able to wear when they grow up. Build up a collection of charms that represent important milestones in your daughter’s life, and give it to her as a gift when she’s older. More than getting memorable charms, be sure to get a bracelet that is made from sterling silver, and stay away from nickel silver which can cause allergic contact dermatitis.

 

For your special someone

Nothing is more unique than your own love story. Mark your special moments with charms that can be customized with a personal message, and charms that are engraved with ‘Anniversary’. Giving a charm bracelet complete with charms that celebrate your love is a great way to make every moment count with your special someone.

 

Your sister

Charms are a great way to celebrate your special bond with your sibling. To make it more personalized, consider her personal style as well as the activities she enjoy doing, and get a necklace that will fit her lifestyle. For instance, if she likes hanging pendants and charms on her necklaces, you can get her a sterling silver or gold chain that can accommodate the weight of charms. If you intend to give her charms that are large and heavy, go for twisted link chains and heavy rope chains.

Making the gift personalized

If the person you are giving the charms to has a job that requires typing, you may want to get charms that will fit closely onto the bracelet so that they don’t get in the way when he or she is typing. If your sister or your special someone loves creative accents, buy dangle charms and Murano glass beads that will add drama and a touch of color to the gold or silver chain.

 

Types of charms

When shopping for charms, you will find that there are different types of charms that range in prices based on the material used and on the presence of stones or diamonds.

 

14k gold charms– luminous charms that are made from 14 karat gold. This type of charm is more resistant to scratch due to the presence of other non-gold metals. You can find 14k gold charms in a wide range of designs including opulent flowers, heart clip, and shimmering droplets

 

Sterling silver charms – this type of charm goes well with sterling silver chains. You can choose from dangle sterling silver charms, unicorn charms, and dog tag style charms, just to name a few.

 

Two tone charms (gold and silver) – the perfect type of charm to add elegance into your current charms collection. Two tone charms are made from 14 karat gold and sterling silver.

 

Murano glass charms – these charms draw on centuries of craftsmanship. Intricate methods and traditional techniques are used to create them. Murano glass charms are crafted to accentuate the beauty of color and the depth of the design.

 

When buying charms as a gift, it is important to choose charms that will not damage the bracelet. Pandora charms, for example, have an inner thread that allows the charms to move smoothly around the bracelet without causing scratches.

Outfit Post – So Crazy So Beautiful

I asked my son what he thought of my new hairstyle and he said it is so crazy so beautiful! His response made me giggle and that is what inspired the title of the post. I like to find inspiration in my day-to-day life and my kids inspire me in so many ways.

These photos were taken a few days ago. The weather was good, so I decided to make the most of it and wear a dress without tights. In a few weeks, rocking bare legs won’t be possible, so I am making the most of the not so cold weather. Autumn can be so up and down. One minute it is freezing cold and we all have our heating on, and the next thing it is 18 degrees and we have our windows open. The weather is so crazy so beautiful sometimes.

The black dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it as a week some weeks ago. It is a great quality piece. I adore the fabric of the dress and the style. You can never have too many little black dresses. There will always be room for more and this stunning skater black dress confirms the saying. I love the design at the front. It took the dress to a whole new level.

It was dead easy to style this black piece. I settled on the black shoes and leopard print blazer because that was the look I was going for. The gold clutch bag also complemented the outfit beautifully. I am feeling this outfit a lot!

How to Add Playfulness to Your Style With Polka Dots

Polka dots can be trendy if you know how to style them just right. They add a lot of fun and playfulness to your style. If you wear polka dots, no matter how small, they would always stand out.

Just like other patterns, styling a polka dot piece can be tricky especially when you’re trying to figure out which outfits you can match your polka dots with.

However, whether you’re looking for ways to add some playfulness to your outfit or you simply want to know interesting ways you can incorporate the lively vibe polka dots give to your style, then I’ve got you covered. Here are easy ways you can work the playful polka dot in your wardrobe.

 

  1. Get outfits with polka dot detail

If you’re trying to test the waters with polka dots then this is a good starting point for you. Opting for outfits with polka dot detail help you ease into polka dots and still get to rock the playfulness they offer. The polka dot details can come in form of polka dots embroidered in the fabric or a dotted mesh.

A neutral top with polka dot details is every easy to style with a plain coloured skirt or trousers. You can match the neutral coloured polka dot top with bright coloured bottoms to add some contrast and fun.

 

  1. Accessories that give you a touch of polka dots

You may not be brave to wear polka dots from head to toe. But you can wear accessories that give a hint of polka dots. That’s enough to add some playfulness to your style.

Take for example a lovely pair of polka dot heels or ballerina flats. The presence of polka dots is not too overwhelming but it is conspicuous enough to stand out and add some fun to your style.

Another accessory you could add to introduce some polka dots to your outfit is a handbag with polka dots on it. This small addition could add some playfulness to your outfit. So you don’t necessarily have to wear polka dots, instead, just carry the handbag around. It’s fun and trendy as well.

 

  1. Mix and match your polka dots

Polka dots stand out on their own. And so when you mix them with simple pieces especially if they are in a single colour they make your outfit look fun. So whether you wear a bright coloured polka dot shirt and layer it over a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt, you’ll look amazing either way.

 

  1. Wear polka dots from head to toe

So far, we know that polka dots work great with other pieces, but do they look great on their own? Of course they do! And they deliver on all the fun and playfulness you want to achieve in your look.

A polka dot dress is a classic and it looks fun and chic at the same time. If this trend seems a little too much for you, then you can layer your polka dot maxi or midi dress with a blazer or create contrast with a nice chunky belt on your waist.
