Charm Holders and Charm Bracelets
Silver charm holders were in vogue in the 1970's and 1980's when women found that wearing multiple charms on a single necklace caused the charms to aggregate and obscure the view the individual charms. The charm holders became one such tool to aid this problem.
Silver charms and pendants tip their hat to the sterling silver charm bracelet. These are historically cable or curb chain bracelets, which house a series of personalized charms for the lucky female who owns one. Typically the charms were given to the young gal for her birthday or other special occasion and mark a date of significance or symbolize a type of personal interest such as coin collecting, good luck, or a love interest. Traditional silver charms can be found within the pages of the Plum Island Silver catalog, and more specifically in the charms and pendant section.
