Charms for Sale
A recent trend
(starting about 2005) is for the big designers to add dangling charms to
their handbags or other items, including clothing as well as accessories.
Sometimes these are sold only with the high-end items, such as Louis
Vuitton's larger bags. Other designers have made "logo" charms to promote
their brand. All the major designers seem to have jumped on the charm
bandwagon: Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Prada, YSL/Yves Saint
Laurent, Hermes, Juicy Couture, and so on.
All the charms
and bracelets shown below are
pictures of pieces I came across while browsing through the web, catalogs, newspapers
and magazines. I've made no attempt to select for price, so you may
see anything from nickel-plated "fashion jewelry" through high-end "fine
jewelry" items costing $1,000's. I’ve tried to provide the source of the photo, vendor
names and websites where I can so visitors can track down items in which
they’re interested. However, I've found that many unique and unusual
items are offered for a limited time and may no longer be for sale.
I am in no way representing or endorsing any
of these items or vendors, nor am I receiving any fees for these pictures to appear.
These bracelets are ones that caught my eye, and I thought other collectors
might like to see them as well.
