Modern day photo jewelry charms involve cutting edge technology, but jewelry charm collecting itself has a long and rich history that dates back to pre-medieval times. In those ancient times, people wore jewelry charm bracelets because they thought the jewelry charms would protect them from evil spirits and illnesses. However, by the time the Renaissance period arrived, as science and medicine developed, these superstitions faded and the jewelry charm bracelet waned in popularity.
It wasn’t until the beginning of the 20th century that jewelry charm bracelets came back into style, but for completely different reasons than they had originally been intended. Popularized in Victorian England by none other than the queen herself (who wore small locket charms of family portraits attached to her bracelets) charm bracelets took on a distinctly decorative function. These were unique locket charms as they contained family portraits.
It wasn’t until the 1940s and 1950s that jewelry charm bracelets as collectable keepsakes became a widely acceptable and popular hobby. Soldiers returning from World War II brought bracelets and charms as mementos and keepsakes from the different places they visited in Europe and Asia.
The hobby of collecting jewelry charm bracelets and locket charms declined in the 1970’s, but made a huge comeback in the 1990’s with the sudden resurgence in the public’s interest of collectables of all kinds. This trend is still going strong today, and millions of people enjoy building and collecting these sentimental and beautiful treasures, with more joining the ranks of jewelry charm collecting with every passing year. Photo charm jewelry is now a unique extension of this age old tradition.
