Fourseven charm : Stylepost
It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important …. Birds chirping for the first time in the dead of winter …. waking up early and realizing you have hours to sleep ….. when Starbucks spells your name right …. finding money in your pocket that you forgot about ….. The perfect beer pour or something as silly as finding the missing match to your favorite socks …. As people, we’re always reaching out for big things you know? Big ideas … big moments … big lives …. And all this while the little things we’re ignoring are undoing us …. No more of this for me …. and it’s time that we start getting wildly enthusiastic about all these silly little things ….. it’s time to skip down the street and run against the wind ….. Just like the man who once upon a time during the Neolithic era ended up picking an unusual stone or piece of wood and carried it throughout with him to ward off his enemies …. Little did he know that these pieces of stones and metals would sooner be made into elaborate jewelry pieces and would emerge as charms during the age of the Egyptian Pharaohs …. It was during this time that the first recognizable charm bracelets and necklaces first appeared ….. Fast forward to the dark days of the Middle Ages, we find that charms and amulets were put to use by knights and kings ….. most often being used with incantations to wreak havoc on the occupants of enemy castles and protect warriors in battle ….. IMAGINE !!! ….. Then in the early 20th century, we saw that the charms had a dramatic change of purpose … When the beloved Prince Albert died, Queen Victoria made mourning charms popular with lockets of hair from the deceased, followed by the miniature portraits, and charm bracelets intricately carved from jet …. Who knew the charm bracelets of Queen Victoria would end up igniting the next big wave of charm wearing population??? ….. and ever since then there was no looking back !!! ….. Sooner in 1889 Tiffany & Co launched their first charm bracelet at the Paris Exposition ….. It was a chain link charm bracelet with a single dangling heart pendant (gosh! how badly do we need one in our lives?) and as expected it proved to be very popular.
In order to forge a beautiful connection to the things we love the most …. We wear a charm bracelet or a necklace nearly every day now and we have dozens …. Thanks to fourseven charms …. and guess what ?? ….. People stop us on the streets to chat about whichever one we are wearing … share tales of charms they have known, loved, or lost …. Their enchanting and sentimental stories give us goose bumps. (the god of small things you see?) ….. You can wear your fourseven charms the way you like – on a necklace, a bracelet or an anklet …. Take cues on how to wear charms to create different styles …. Mix em up to create your own style and there you go …. You have a story ready !!!
Here are some styling tips to get you started.
We suggest that you design your own charm bracelet, necklace, anklet or ring by simply choosing your favourite fourseven charms and then choose how you want to wear them! …. You can start small with a single charm on a chain or cord, then collect more over the period of time …. The best part is you can wear your charm dangling from a chain today around your neck and tomorrow you can hang it on your pair of sunglasses and even on your braids or fringes for a completely different look. YOUR STORY. YOUR STYLE!
