I can still remember my 13th birthday like it was yesterday. I received a sterling silver charm bracelet that had only one charm on it at the time – a four leaf clover with “Lucky 13” enameled on it in green. Soon after, I began receiving more charms, one on every significant occasion in my life. That charm bracelet has become one of my treasured possessions. Here are just a few reasons why you should give your daughter a sterling silver charm bracelet.
My bracelet is a chronicle of my life, and I only have to pick it up and look at one of the charms on it and I am transported back to that time. My mom gave me my sterling silver charm bracelet, and so it always reminds me of my mom when I wear it. I lost her to cancer 12 years ago, but I have so many wonderful memories of her! Mom taking pictures of me at the church on my Confirmation day…silver filigree cross. Mom watching with that strange smile as I drove off for the first time in my new car…silver beetle car…Mom helping me get dressed before my wedding…silver Precious Moments couple…Mom holding my hand while I was in labor with my first child…silver stork. I could go on, but I don’t think I need to.
My bracelet is has become a family heirloom. My daughter and I look at it together and she knows all of the stories associated with each charm. It will be something that she will treasure long after I am gone, and I know she will pass on those stories to her daughter. That little sterling silver charm bracelet will tell stories to my descendants for years to come, and somehow that gives me comfort, knowing that the people associated with each charm will long be remembered and cherished in the collective memory of my family.
If you are looking for something to give your daughter for her birthday or Christmas this year, a sterling silver charm bracelet would be one of the best ways I can think of to show her your love.
