The Chamilia Charm bracelet is a great gift for any woman. If you are looking for that very special gift for someone close to you, whether girlfriend, mother or wife, you really should check out the latest Chamilia Charms.
If you are able to afford it, completed Chamilia charm bracelets are an ideal gift, although it does end up being quite costly to not only buy the bracelet but then to add a good amount of Chamilia beads to it as well. One idea that works well is to give a gift of a starter bracelet. In other words, buy a bracelet and add a few Chamilia charms onto it, so it doesn’t look bare or empty. It would cost you somewhere around $120 for a bracelet with three silver charms, for example. If you wanted to go with gold you would end up spending quite a bit more, naturally, although if within your budget the gold charms are very nice.
In some ways beginning with just the bracelet and a few Chamilia beads is the safest way to go when buying a gift for someone. That way you don’t have to decide on the entire design yourself, but you can instead simply buy some charms that you think the recipient would like and then let them choose the rest for themselves, as they are able to. You can start off with a silver and gold charm, with a Murano bead in between, for example. Or if you have a special shared memory, you could try to buy a Chamilia bead that would represent that memory and place that on the bracelet.
It is often much easier if the person already has a Chamilia Bead bracelet, as you can simply add to their bracelet buy buying a charm or two that you think they would like. That will also end up being a lot less expense on your part too. Just make sure, if you do that, that you know what sort of Chamilia charms she already has so you don’t end up buying her the same charm. If possible, try to find out if there is a special Chamilia bead that she is hoping to add to her existing bracelet, and buy that for her.
I first learned about the Chamilia charm selection when one of my daughters bought her sister one for her twenty-first birthday. She actually managed to save up and buy a bracelet, complete with about ten charms on it already. She selected specific Chamilia beads that she knew would be meaningful for her sister, and I think it was the best gift she had ever received. You should have seen her expression of joy when she opened up the jewelry box and saw the bracelet.
Since then, different ones in our family have made it a practice to add to her bracelet whenever we need to buy her a gift. She has quite a collection now, which she is very glad to have as it allows her to mix and match her Chamilia beads, depending on the outfit she is wearing, or what she is going to do.
