What does gold-filled mean?

Posted on April 28, 2017 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

All that glitters IS gold. And our gold collection is proof. Spoil yourself! You're worth it.

Gold-filled jewelry is different that gold-plated jewelry or solid gold pieces. Gold-filled jewelry is heirloom jewelry that will last a lifetime. In our case, a 14kt gold alloy is bonded to surface of the piece with heat and pressure. Gold-filled does not deteriorate like plated pieces and it does not tarnish as readily as Sterling silver. Plus, it's harder than solid gold. It's basically the Superman of jewelry products and we are proud to offer it.

Posted on March 24, 2017 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

We are proud and honored to announce that Charmed Collections has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club.

The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses, two in every state and the District of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses. Each state winner will be awarded a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense-paid trip to a training and networking event in Dallas, TX, SCORE mentoring and publicity throughout the year. Each Champion is also eligible for one of three $25,000 grand prizes.

We are honored to have been chosen for this award. When we began our business in 2009, our dream was to create jewelry to honor and empower all types of mothers and all types of families. We hoped to especially serve the infertility and adoption communities by providing heirloom quality pieces that spoke to their unique journey. As members of both of these unique communities, this was very important to us. 

The prizes, training, publicity and SCORE mentoring we have been awarded will help us take our business to the next level, and better serve you, our customers. We look forward to attending the training event in Dallas, Texas, and will be sure to check back in and let you know how it goes.

We are so excited!

How to Polish Brass Jewelry

Posted on October 26, 2015 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

We are in love with our swing-top brass bracelets. They are totally customizable and the perfect inexpensive, thoughtful gift. But how do you take care of brass jewelry? Let us tell you!

When polished, brass is very similar in color to gold. However, brass does tarnish very easily, and can leave a faint tint on some people due to the oils in their skin.

To keep your brass looking bright, avoid getting brass jewelry wet. Brass can be cleaned or polished with regular toothpaste and then rinsed and dried.

What does your jewelry gift packaging look like?

At Charmed, we believe that every single purchase from our shop is a gift--either for yourself or a lucky loved one. 

Every package comes gift wrapped. It's just how we roll. Every package will include a card with care instructions an clear storage pouch to slow tarnishing when you're not wearing your piece, and our favorite polishing pads. 

*Cuff bracelets (aren't they gorgeous?!) will come to you in a clear package, not a box.

Here's what you can expect when your package arrives:

Receipts will always be emailed to you instead of included in the package. 

What are my font and image options?

Posted on September 27, 2015 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

Above are the fonts and images we currently offer.

In this sample photo, they are stamped on 7/8" round charms (about the size of a quarter). Those little people are stamped on 1" charms. 

Of course not every font can fit on the piece you are creating. However, you are welcome to change the font on just about any of the designs.

Here is how you request a font switcharoo:

  1. Fall in love with one of the above fonts.
  2. Select a gorgeous piece of jewelry in the shop and add it to the shopping cart. 
  3. Tell us your font request in the Special Instructions section in the shopping cart.

Which fonts can be stamped on the Stackable Rings?

The above images will fit on any of our Stackable Rings. 

Dove of Peace | A Grieving Granddaughter's Story

Posted on March 10, 2014 by Kim Orlandini | 0 Comments

I just have to share with you because I am so excited about this necklace. I think it will be the most meaningful gift I have given someone.


My grandfather passed away in May from cancer. When he was in the hospital, there was a moment when my mother was the only person in the room with him. He told her to look at a dove on the windowsill. She thought his morphine had kicked in and he was seeing things, but turned to look and saw a dove on the windowsill. It gave her such a sense of peace, she told everyone in our family about it.

When I saw this necklace after you posted it on Facebook, I knew it would be perfect for her. 

I would also like to add, he was in that room for 4 days. There was a tree right outside his window. I watched out there every time I was at the hospital and never saw a single bird out that window, not even in the tree. We truly believe that dove was sent to give them peace.

Monarch Butterfly | A Grieving Daughter's Story

Posted on February 28, 2014 by Lindsey Redfern | 0 Comments

Thanks so much for making the butterfly charms

Butterflies have meant a lot to my siblings and me since my dad passed. Monarch butterflies especially have had a very special meaning to us as my dad loved them.

One followed our car as we entered the cemetery and literally followed us to his grave site...we watched it through the sunroof. 

These pieces for my siblings and me are such a special reminder of our dad.
