Charms have been around since ancient times. It wasn't until World War II however, when soldiers collected trinkets for the women they loved, that the wearing of charms became vastly popular. As a result, the wearing of charm bracelets became an immense trend in the 1950s and 1960s. A bit of personal history; some may love the sound the bracelet makes when in motion while others appreciate examining each charm to discover its significance.
This bracelet of fifteen heart charms, nine of which are marked sterling, is the sweetest symbol of love featuring icons of love including forget-me-not flowers, hearts, wedding bells, clasped hands and roses. What a wonderful love token, 16th birthday present, or gift to yourself. Either way it is sure to be adored!
