Marketplace | Build Your Own Vintage Charm Bracelet at Estate Jewelers, Ltd.

Stepping into Estate Jewelers, Ltd. on Barrington’s Main Street feels a little like stepping back in time.

Maybe it’s the scarecrow brooch I spotted near their collection of vintage gold charms, just like the one my grandmother, Winnie used to wear on her winter coat.

Maybe it’s the antique six cord spool cabinet where they display their vintage silver charms, a larger version of the box where my grandmother kept her treasures.

There’s an elegance to the hand-picked pieces available in this long-time local estate jewelry shop that feels ladylike and refined and so very special. The same qualities I think of when Winnie comes to mind. I miss her this time of year.

Lately, I’ve been perusing Estate Jewelers’ vintage charms to make bracelets for the ladies in my life. A Christmas present for my 10-year-old daughter and gifts for a sister and best friends celebrating milestone birthdays this year.

Estate Jewelers’ buyer, Debi Giannini says their vintage charm assortment is unlike any you’ll find elsewhere.

“We have a fantastic selection of both gold and sterling silver vintage charms and many are from the 1940’s and 1950’s. We also have charm bracelets. People like to create their own so we have the charms all separate so you can build a story. Some create bracelets to celebrate significant events like a birth, birthdays, anniversaries or maybe they’ll do places that they visited, holidays or hobbies. Each charm is very unique because most of them are three dimensional where today’s charms tend to be kind of flat and lightweight. Vintage charms really are fun and whimsical and something you can’t find so easily today.”
