This type is secured in a chain link – although the dangling wristlets are still available on the market. Traditional charm trinkets are made from metals such as gold, sterling silver, copper, and bronze, as well as calfskin. The ornaments attached to the bangle can be anything. It can be a religious icon, an animal, or any theme you prefer that defines your style.
These armlets are like Italian charm bangles. The only difference lies in the shape of the pieces. European charms are rounded pieces whereas Italian trinkets are rectangular.
A European charm armlet uses a thin chain material where the trinkets are added. People wear it for an elegant look and because of the less jangly sound.
Glass, enamel, and gemstones are the widely used materials for making this accessory. Like traditional charm bracelets, the pieces attached to the chain can be formed in a variety of shapes, from heart-shaped pendants to animal figures. You can also change the ornaments to match your outfit and the occasion.

This is the latest type of charm bangles and has a different look compared to other charm wristlets. This armlet uses a piece of leather as the bracelet’s base instead of a metal chain.
Leather charm armlets give a rebel stylish look because of its appearance. Furthermore, you can wear this accessory as an inspiration. All you have to do is attach the engraved plate to the leather band through threading. Lastly, leather charm accessories are ideal for stacking purposes, making them easier to keep in the jewelry box.
These are the types of charm bracelets. You can buy these accessories from stores or create them by yourself. Either way, these bangles will enhance your look and attract attention from their admirers.
