Attaching Charms at Home

We will add any new CharmWorks charms for free to a bracelet that has previously been purchased from us. All you need to do is contact us and return your bracelet (If possible please contact us before placing the new order).

If you have already started a charm bracelet the charms from our site can be added to virtually any bracelet. There are a number of ways you can add items to your bracelet some easier than others. All our hanging charms come with a sterling silver jump ring and a 5mm sterling silver split ring as standard unless another attachment type is purchased. The split ring is pictured on the left below and the jump ring in the middle.

Split Ring ( Right Image ): A split ring is basically like a very small key ring it springs open when you slide a charm onto it and then holds itself 'shut' once you have done so. This type of ring is perfect for adding charms to bracelets if you do not want to take the item to a jewellers. The only downside is they only work with thin bracelets as if the rings are stretched to far they will not return to their original state and thus not providing a secure method of attachment. A pair of split ring pliers can help when opening them but is not strictly necessary it just makes it a little easier with smaller rings ( less than 7mm ). Purchase extra 6mm Sterling Silver Split Rings ( £1.95 per Pair )

Jump Ring: This is a sterling silver ring, these are used when one wants to have a charm soldered to a bracelet. Soldering provides one of the most secure methods of attachment but means once placed charms can not really be moved. This can be done at a local jewellers, often the retailer of your bracelet will be able to do this for you at a discounted rate. It should be noted that prices for soldering vary wildly we have heard of people paying from nothing up to £30 !! All our charms come with the jump ring needed to do this. It would also be possible to use this ring to attach a charm to a bracelet or to use it as a pendant on a chain. However there would be a risk of it coming lose or if the charm got pulled it could fall off.

No Solder Jump Ring ( Left Image) : The jump ring pictured on the right is what is called a 'no solder' jump ring. This ring can be used to attach a charm to a charm bracelet without soldering but while still providing an excellent way of adding to a bracelet. These jump rings are of the highest quality and saw cut so they can be opened and closed to provide an almost seamless join. This method of attachment is the most ideal as it provides the benefits of soldering without either the cost or the permanency. These provide virtually as strong a connection as soldering. If a no solder ring is used charms can be added and removed from a bracelet for example if tastes change or you want to add a charm representing something that changed since the bracelet was assembled. This is the method we use to attach charms to all the bracelets we assemble for our customers. We can supply these with any order just click here to purchase them ( No Solder Jump Rings £1.95 for 2 ).

Charms on a Lobster Clasp We can add any of our charms to a sterling silver lobster clasp so they can be clipped onto necklaces and bracelet. If you wish us to send out your charms on a lobster clasp just add the correct number of Lobster Clasps from this link.

Charms on a Hanger Bead Any of our charms can be added to a bead bracelet using a sterling silver Hanger Bead. If you wish us to send out your charms on a hanger bead we have a number of core sizes and styles available. Just add the correct number to your cart from the Accessories Category.

Bracelet Assembly Service ( For non CharmWorks Bracelets )If you have purchased a bracelet from another retailer or have an bracelet you already wear and do not want to add new charms yourself we can add them for you. All you need to do is add the charms you want to your shopping cart and then add the number of charms you want attached using this link to your cart. The fee is only £1 per charm however the buyer is responsible for the cost of posting the bracelet to TheCharmWorks.

* Please note we are testing a new online bracelet builder this builder will allow customers to specify how they would like the charms arranged and will charge a fee of between £1 - £3 for the assembly. However customers can still order by picking a bracelet and adding charms separately to the their cart. Bracelets ordered this way will not be subject to an assembly charge.
