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. Options vary, select the attachment option that suits you. The service is non-refundable.
