Charms & Beads
Charms, Beads and Rembrandt
Since 1990, Windsor Gallery Jewelers has been crafting charms of area homes, schools, churches and historic sites. With over 90 of Your Hometown Charms, we are sure to have the special place or memory just for you. We welcome commissions, like our latest, the Fulton Mock Blackmer house.
The history of charms goes way back. Once worn to ward off evil spirits and bring good luck, Kunta Kinte (Alex Haley's ROOTS) wore his saphie to remind him of his strength and connection to his home. It travelled with him to Maryland on a slave ship. It was a Gambian tradition thousands of years old.
Tracey Zabar in "Charmed Bracelets" calls the modern charm bracelet "history on a wrist."
Rembrandt Charms are a valued collection. Rembrandt is America's largest collection of charms, bracelets and innovations like their Grow With Me bracelet for little girls, charm drops to adapt your charms for your bead bracelet and PhotoArt Charms featuring your favorite photograph.
