Earlier this year, international jewelry retailer Thomas Sabo launched its first shop in Vancouver (its 4th in Canada) at Oakridge Centre. Best known for its sterling silvery jewelry pieces, one of the more youthful collections is the Thomas Sabo Charm Club. I’ve always beem a fan of the versitility of charms as a jewelry accessory. I like how you are able to pick and choose and customize your jewelry with your own choice of charms, and choose charms based on their meaning and significance to you. Within the Thomas Sabo Charm Club collection, there’s also a diverse range of bracelets, necklaces and watches for you to wear your charms on. I like the plain simpleness of the sterling silver chain bracelet (see images below), but you can also purchase bracelets made of pearls or silk or beads.
Here are some highlights from their Fall/Winter 2011 collection:
Pearls for Girls: Love the simple black enamel, sterling silver and pearl combination on these charms. All the charms in this collection are dainty and lady-like, with charms including black-tipped ballet flats, the Eiffle Tower with a pearl adornment, a handbags, bow and ring.
Falling in Love in Fall: This collection is more festive with shades of autumn – red and orange enamel highlighting symbollic charms like a smiling jack-o-lantern and different variety of leaves; some adorned with jewels and others left in plain sterling silver.
Nature Loves Elegance Too: Pick one of these animal-themed charms for yourself or one of your pet-loving friends. The charms in the collection range from sterling silver felines to more exotic animals like pandas and penguins.
