Charms and Chains

What types of charms do you sell?
We sell vintage, vintage-inspired, and modern, sought-after 14 karat gold charms. If a charm is listed as "Vintage," it is an older collectible that we have acquired over the years and lives in our "Vintage Vault".

Vintage Vault

Our one-of-a-kind vintage gold charms, lovingly curated by our charm experts, span every era, from Victorian sentimental miniatures to post-war travel and life-themed miniatures. Many of these charms were created in 9k, 10k, 14k, and 18k gold, depending on their origin. While we can not always know the provenance of the charms we collect, we try to list as many details as possible online. Our full vintage collection is housed in our New York showroom vault, so book an appointment or shop the “Latest Arrivals” to see the newest as we list charms weekly.

Charmco Collection

Our 14k gold Charmco collection charms are proudly made in the USA, right here in our New York City studio. We're constantly designing and dropping new charms and striving to craft on-trend, sought-after styles. Many are inspired by our favorite vintage and antique charms but with a modern twist! Charmco's collection includes over a thousand styles that are noted for their handmade movable elements, fine details, and sophistication. Collection charms are available in 14k yellow gold, and many by special order, in 14k white gold and 14k rose gold. While we keep a small stock of our most popular designs on hand, most new charms are made to order, specifically for you. By mindfully curating our vintage vault and not over-producing new pieces, we aim to avoid excess and unnecessary inventory and only produce charms as they are ordered.

Curating vintage and producing made-to-order, direct-to-consumer new pieces are just a few ways to keep our environmental impact low and have a more eco-friendly approach to fine jewelry.

Are Charmco charms made from real gold?

Yes. All charms from the Charmco collection are crafted in our New York studio with 14 karat yellow gold. You can place a special order for 14 karat white and rose gold with us. The charms in our Vintage Vault are primarily 14 karat gold, but we also have a few made from 9k,10k, and 18k. Please check the vintage charm's description for more information. All charms are checked for quality and authenticity before being added to the vault.

We do not offer any charms in vermiel, gold-plated, gold-filled, or sterling silver.

To learn more about why we prefer 14 karat gold, read this blog post.

What is a jump ring?
Jump rings are the gold loops that connect a charm to a chain or bracelet. When ordering your charms, you can indicate if you'd like us to leave the jump ring open, solder it closed, or attach it to a bracelet or necklace in your cart. To learn more about these options, click here.
What does "Open Jump Ring" mean?

Most of our charms come with an open gold loop (jump ring) which is used to attach them to a bracelet or necklace. We recommend this ring be closed professionally by soldering before wearing. Soldering is a process that bonds two pieces of metal together securing a charm to a chain or bracelet. This process can be done by a local jeweler or by Charmco prior to shipping. At checkout you will be asked to select one of the below options. Please note that soldering and attachments are a service offered by Charmco for $10 per charm and this charge is considered non-refundable.

Attach to bracelet in my cart ($10)
I have or will have a bracelet in my shopping cart and I would like Charmco to solder my charm to the bracelet
Attach to necklace in my cart ($10)
I have or will have a necklace in my shopping cart and I would like Charmco to solder my charm on the necklace
Close the jump ring for me ($10)
I would like Charmco to solder the ring closed, this option works best for wearing on your own necklace or if you plan to slide on a bracelet or necklace.
Leave the jump ring open for me ($0)
I will have the ring soldered at a local jeweler
How are charms placed on chains, if attached?

For Bracelets: A single charm will generally be soldered to the center of the bracelet. Multiple charms will be attached by a charm stylist in a balanced order. If you have a certain order you prefer, please let us know in the "Notes" section at checkout.

For Necklaces: We will solder the jump ring and slide the charms on your selected chain. If you are looking to have us "station" or attach the charms to certain links, please let us know in the "Notes" section at checkout.

What are charm connectors and clasps?
Charm connectors and clasps are great for versatility. Charm clasps act as a replacement for the jump ring and open and snap shut so you can move it from chain to chain. Charm connectors are larger, singular clasps you can use to style and stack your charms. To learn more about these options, click here.
Do you offer engraving?

Yes, an engraved charm goes that extra mile. Whether it’s a monogram, name, birthday, or message you want to engrave, we have the charm for you. The charms in our "Engravables" category are made with personalization in mind. You may add names, initials, birthdates or a longer thoughtful message. Please refer to our "Engraving Styles" to view the font styles that we offer via machine engraving. Please be mindful that charms are small and we may not be able to add your entire message, refer to alternate images as a reference. Specific instructions can also be added in the order notes at checkout. We will contact you if we have any questions regarding your engraving order. We consider all engraved orders to be special orders and non-refundable.

Please allow 2-3 extra business days for engraved charms.

What are special orders?
All engraved charms are considered special orders. All picture charms (with your pet or child) are special orders. All 14k white gold charms and chains, as well as 14k rose gold charms and chains, are considered special orders.

Additionally, any order that you have contracted with us to make exclusively for you is considered a special order. Special orders can take an additional 7-10 business days or more during the busy holiday season.

Care & Repair

What is your repair policy? What if my charm or chain needs repair at a later date?

Our handcrafted 14k collection charms are proudly made in the USA and we stand behind the integrity and quality of our charms. We rigorously inspect every item being shipped, but if something is wrong with an item you just received, please don't worry. We will repair or replace any charm which does not meet our standards upon customer receipt.

Within the first year of receipt, we offer free repair for collection jewelry if the issue is due to a manufacturing defect. After one year, or if the damage is due to customer handling, a repair fee will be quoted once the jewelry has been inspected.

If you receive a vintage charm from Charmco, we have also checked and inspected the quality and condition of this vintage or antique piece before it was shipped. We will do our best to repair any issue with a vintage charm within eight weeks of receipt. After that time, we are not responsible for the wear and tear that can degrade the quality of these older pieces.

How should I care for my jewelry?

For care, to safely clean charms and charm jewelry, use an old toothbrush to get into all the nooks and crannies with mild detergent-free soap. Be gentle. Dry completely with a lint-free jewelry cloth, as wetness can compromise the integrity of clasps over time.

Lockets, glass stone shakes, pearl encrusted charms or enameled charms should be treated with greater care. Please do not swim or do strenuous activity with your charms as they may get lost, dented, or damaged. Older enamel charms may also lose some coloration over time.

Store your jewelry in a velvet-lined box or in separate pouches/compartments to keep them from getting scratched or brushing against other jewelry.

Please only entrust your charm jewelry to a reputable jewelry store or jeweler.
