Consider Us Charmed: 18 Adorable Pieces To Refresh Your Collection

These trinkets may be small and seemingly unassuming, but the market for pretty charms packs a hefty punch.

According to a 2018 report by Financial Times, the humble charm had revolutionised the jewellery industry and created global names out of brands such as Pandora. Other brands are also beginning to recognise the allure of the charm, especially since it has still remained popular amongst the younger demographic and those seeking to use the charm to express themselves and commemorate milestones in life.

If you’re as in love as we are with these beautiful adornments, read on for our favourite pieces.

Tiffany & Co. boutiques are located at Ion Orchard and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.  Thomas Sabo Dragonfly charm pendant, S$129
The dragonfly motif is a fixture in Thomas Sabo’s S/S’19 Paradise collection and symbolises positive energies and happiness. Made with multi-coloured zirconia and glass-ceramic, this charm is a colourful addition to an otherwise neutral jewellery palette. Thomas Sabo Red Lipstick charm pendant, S$91
Can’t deny your love for vampy red lipsticks? Then pucker up with this playful charm and proudly show off your love for makeup and a bold red lip. Real lippie not included.   Thomas Sabo charm pendant “ethnic hand of Fatima”, S$91
This charm combines the hand of Fatima with Nazar’s eye (also known as the evil eye), which are both believed to help ward off negative energies and possible injuries and harm. We reckon this would be most useful for people who work in the service industry or in a highly competitive environment. Pandora shine reflexions safety chain, S$249
Part of Pandora’s newer Reflexions range, this safety chain charm looks great on its own or layered for a draped effect. Conversely, you could juxtapose it with its counterparts made in rose gold or sterling silver.   Pandora rose bella bot charm, S$129
Show off your bookish side and add a dash of whimsy with this female robot charm from Pandora, complete with bolt and nut limbs and a teensy enamel ribbon. How cute. Pandora spiritual dreamcatcher charm, S$89
Like the evil eye, the Native American dreamcatcher is believed to ward off evil. But not just that, it is also believed to trap nightmares and collect good dreams so you get to enjoy nights of restful sleep. Seems like a good enough reason to add this to your bracelet, but if that’s not enough, this talismanic charm simply adds to the boho appeal. Wanderlust + Co bee gold charm, S$39.28
Inspired by secret gardens and the abundant nature around us, this bee motif is great for people who love nature, even if you don’t like being in it. In addition, bees are thought to symbolise the sun and inner strength. Wanderlust + Co mantra locket gold charm, S$47.46
This charm is more than just a keepsake as the oval locket opens and you are able to affix pictures and tokens within to remember and commemorate what is most precious to you. Or pen an inspiring slogan/quote on a small piece of paper and slip it in for easy reach when you need a reminder. Wanderlust + Co wishing star gold charm, S$33.90
No need to wish upon a star when you have one with you. Be the heroine of your life by adding this star to your collection and finish off with the sun and crescent moon charms from the brand. Monica Vinader siren large pendant charm, S$240
This seemingly ordinary looking pendant from Monica Vinader can actually be personalised with complimentary engraving. Choose texts, motifs, draw a doodle or upload an image for a unique gift to yourself or a loved one. Monica Vinader siren mini bezel pendant charm, S$135
Crystals are another way to add colour to your jewellery and Monica Vinader allows you to choose between five options — pink rose quartz, blue kyanite, magenta pink quartz, blue lace agate and turquoise amazonite — so you can go with your favourite hue. We think the Amazonite one is particularly enthralling. Monica Vinader Chinese zodiac Bessie the pig pendant charm, S$180
Celebrate the Year of the Pig and welcome more fortune into your life with this Bessie the Pig pendant charm. Or you could give it to a loved one if the pig is an endearing nickname you use for each other (inside joke!). Swarovski remix collection charm, March, aqua, rhodium plating, S$59
Personalised pieces are always more meaningful and precious. With 12 gem variants to correspond for each month, you can get your birthstone to complement the month you were born. This for example, is an aqua blue crystal to signify the aquamarine, the birthstone for those who are born in March. Swarovski remix collection charm heart, white, rose gold plating, S$59
Plated with flattering rose gold that suits all skin colours, this heart charm is great as a token of your undying love with your partner. Or you can just use it a symbol of self-love. Swarovski remix collection charm, swan, white, rhodium plating, S$59
Lovers of Swarovski would know that the swan motif is emblematic of the Austrian jeweller. Here, the icon is paved with the signature crystals and embellished with a silvery blue crystal for an elegant finish.
