Collecting Italian Charms

Since early times, people have enjoyed silver for its value and its beauty. Easily mined and malleable early civilizations used it for religious symbols and jewelry. They also used it in trade. Because of its importance in early societies, silver has taken on a special meaning.

While gold represents the warmth of the sun, and masculinity, silver represents coolness, the moon, and femininity. Mystics believe that silver brings increased clarity and inspiration into your life, and will help you spot the good and bad intentions in people.

Silver charm bracelets provide attractive fun jewelry for young and old. You will enjoy collecting and buying silver charms in the form of all kinds of things: sun, stars, moons, and animals. You can mix and match motifs, and trade with friends and family. You could get the charm engraved with a loved ones birthday or anniversary.

Italian charms range from cute to eloquent. If you were Italian, a silver Italian horn charm would be a nice addition to your collection or possibly an Italian Rafael Angel charm with a satin finish. Maybe you like ocean denizens. You could purchase a dolphin or a mermaid charm to dangle from your wrist. They even make charms for computer nerds such as a silver mouse or monitor.

New silver gleams, but it will tarnish. You should store it carefully, and be prepared to clean it with a silver polish. Sterling silver is an alloy comprised of 92.5% silver, with the remaining materials being copper and other metals. The alloy provides a stronger finished product that retains the look and quality of pure silver, but will hold its shape. Additionally, sterling silver may not tarnish as readily depending on the other compounds in the mixture.

Collecting silver charms is a family affair. Family members sit around the kitchen table comparing their charm bracelets. They show off new acquisitions, or reminiscing about old ones. The silver gleam looks attractive, but the charms are inexpensive. You should have a good time collecting charms.
