Charms ~ Miniature Memories.
Creating A Unique And Special Piece;
We are happy to create personalised pieces for customers, there is no charge for this service. Charm bracelets, bangles, brooches, Key Rings and bookmarks may be created from our web site, but if this leaves you confused, or your wanting something else, then simply e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and place your requirements in an e-mail.
All you need to create a personal piece are the charms and accessories. The designing and creation is a free service. Simply choose the piece you would like your charms attached too, add one Split Ring (product code HMCBSR) for each charm chosen, complete your purchase with a Presentation Box (product code HMCBPB) and we will send your piece complete, as the very personal gift you wish it to be.
Please note; we automatically space the charms chosen along the length of the bracelet, but we do so in a way that ensures that the completed charm bracelet is balanced. That is to say, the bracelet hangs as it should, (an unbalanced bracelet will cluster behind the wrist). Please consider that stating the order for the charms on a bracelet may result in your bracelet being unbalanced. We also distribute coloured charms evenly along the bracelet.
Important Hints & Tips;
Charm to Pendant When wanting to wear a Charm as a pendant on a chain, you will need a Chain Bail or a Split Ring. Charms are supplied with an Open Jump Ring, but these are not soldered close and chains will wiggle free through the open ring. Chain Bails are available in our Store and start at just 65p each. When a Charm, Chain, Bail and Box (code 40437) are purchased together, we will send the complete pendant necklace made and sat in the presentation box. Please clearly state at checkout which items are to be worn as a pendant necklace, especially when your shopping cart contains several items. (Due to the minimum cost of £3.00 in stamps to post box 40437, we can no longer supply the boxes free of charge but must make a charge to cover the additional postage cost).
Charms to Earrings We are happy to mount Earrings Mounts. 3D Charms or un-directional charms are best suited for earrings. Please consider how the earrings will look if, for example, do the charms face only to the right. When Charms and Earrings Mounts are purchased together, we will send the completed earrings in a blue hard shell box, or you may purchase velvet box 40437. Please state at checkout which items are to be worn as earrings, especially when your shopping cart contains several items.
Charm Bracelets may be as simple or as intricate as you wish. A Figure Eight Bracelet mounted with just one charm, provides simple elegance, whilst a Charm Bracelet may also hold a wealth of memories depicted by many charms for someone special. *Please ensure you choose the right length bracelet! 6" bracelets are for children and they are less expensive because they are smaller!*
We receive a number of bracelet requests with 13 charm choices. Please consider the feelings of the recipient when choosing 13 suppose to 11 or 15 charms!
Mixing charm sizes is great, but remember that a bracelet must balance and so if you purchase one very large charm and do not choose another the same size, the large charm will need to be set into the middle of the bracelet. Try to buy in twos making both sides even with colour and even in size. We promise that when we add the charms to the bracelet, the bracelet will balance, (not cluster behind the wrist), and the charms will be evenly distributed along the bracelet.
Enamel Charms and Gem Stone Charms can add a warmth of colour to a bracelet. We will evenly distribute these charms. A single coloured heart charm looks pretty set onto the clasp link of the bracelet. Attached with a very tiny Split Ring, this charm often 'finishes' a bracelet. Our Enamel charms are kiln fired glass enamel, accept those coded PIC.
When ordering more than one initial charm, please remember to detail the order for the initials on on the bracelet. In the case of Letter Key Charms, please remember to detail the name required.
Where charms chosen simply do not look right on a completed bracelet, we will change the charms ensuring that what you receive is as nice as it can be. We will e-mail you and advise which charms we have changed and advise why we have done so. In most cases, it is simply a case of exchanging a very large charm for a smaller version.
Please note that we will not dispatch charms attached to any charm holder without a Presentation Box and the correct number of Split Rings being purchased. Our standard hard shell charm boxes are not suitable to hold a bracelet with charms attached.
Please note, that where Jewellery Enchantments have attached charms to a bracelet, before dispatch, customers must ensure they have the correct size bracelet. We can not exchange bracelets where charms have been fitted and the bracelet is discovered to be too small, as the goods can not be resold as 'new'. All personalised items, items altered at the request of the customer, are non-returnable (1/2" should be added to the wrist measurement for standard charm bracelets).
