Confirmation Charms

Confirmation Charms

           
Charms have been around for a long time.  In ancient times a person would carry an unusual stone or piece of wood in hope it would ward off enemies or evil spirits.  The Egyptian Pharaohs made the wearing of precious stones and metals popular.  The Egyptians also bear responsibility for creating ID tags (in the form of gems or jewelry or with special messages) so the God's would recognize and guide this person in the afterlife.
           
Christians of the Roman Empire wore the 'Ichthys' (fish) charm to identify themselves to other Christians.  Jewish scholars of the time would write passages from Jewish law on tiny slips of parchments and carry them in a small golden amulet around his neck in belief he was keeping the law close to his heart.
           
During the Middle Ages Knights and kings wore charms on their belts to represent their family origin.  They also used charms in incantations to wreck havoc on their enemies as well as protect their warriors in battle.
           
During the Renaissance as mass production of books and other writings began, the superstitions that accompanied charms began to fade until the 20th Century when bracelets of Queen Victoria became a fade.  Queen Victoria's charms generally consisted of items connect to family ─ photographs, locks of hair.
           
At the end of WWII soldiers leaving Europe or the Pacific Islands purchased trinkets from native craftsmen to bring home to their sweethearts.  Stateside jewelers quickly picked up the trend to create charms for all occasions.
           
In the 1950's charm bracelets were a necessary accessory for every female's major rite of passage─ from birthdays, graduations to weddings and arrival of children.  Charms might include icons of cartoons, travel, favored sports or famous movie actors.  In recent years some of those vintage bracelets have sold at public auctions for several thousand dollars.
           
From 1970's when gold chains became the rage until the early 1990's charm bracelets were unheard of until the advance of places like E-Bay.  In 2001 charm bracelets once again made the fashion plate and today are very common.
           
Charms depicting practices or famous people of the Catholic faith are widely accepted. .   A charm bracelet of miniature tablets displaying the Ten Commandments (R41874) or of the Nativity (R16890), for instance, are common First Communion and Christmas gifts.  For Confirmation one might give a Traditional Saints Bracelet holding charms of Patron Saints (R16820)
