This was my mother's charm bracelet, part of her estate, and it has a rich history. Our family roots are from CT, and I found 1 charm on this bracelet that was a locket, with my mother's year of birth (1931) engraved on it, plus a tiny pic of her inside it. The locket itself is 14 kt gold, and it is the only charm I had removed and kept, as I now wear it on a gold chain, close to my heart! I don't have solid proof, but I have reason to believe that the gold locket was the very 1st charm, most likely added between 1936-1942. My grandparents worked for a very wealthy woman in CT during that time period, beginning when my mother was only 5 yrs old...the woman was very generous and adored my mother, so she may have given this bracelet (with a 1st charm) as a gift to my mother. As an adult, my mother worked full-time, as well as being an artist on the side, and travelled quite a bit when I was older. She added charms that came from her trips, experiences in life, as well as charms that had meaning from family events, etc. My mom passed away in Sept 2017, and believe it or not, I find "her special charm bracelet" to be too painful to wear! Being sentimental, I would much rather have someone else enjoy this piece of jewelry, and add their own little piece of history to it! Just to clarify, there are 23 charms on this bracelet, and room for a few more.
