have been around a lot longer than most people think. The styles and uses for charms have changed over the years, but people have been collecting and wearing them since as early as the middle ages. Some believed that they would ward off evil or bring good fortune to the wearer, but the reason custom charms have remained so popular is their ability to capture a memory and keep it close at hand.
Creating a custom charm is as easy as filling out a free quote with a few of your ideas. Whether they’re for a custom charm necklace, bracelet or keychain, having a simple split charm loop attachment makes it easy to secure your charms in place and display your design. Every design is unique, so be sure to let us know how we can help bring your story to life.
High polish gold is a popular choice for many of our customers who are designing custom charms. The bright color of the precious metal is reminiscent of jewelry, making gold charms a welcome addition to anyone's charm bracelet.
All of the custom charms we help design need to have a small loop at the top of the design so our production team can include a split charm loop. This makes securing a charm in place quick and easy once they are delivered.
Georgia State University Panther Band - Front
These silver charms were created for Georgia State University. The recessed areas of the design are sandblasted to create a textured surface that adds contrast to the design.
Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections
The barbed wire border around the text of this custom charm creates a unique effect. Thanks to the black colorfill, every detail in the artwork is easy to appreciate.
Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader
Not all custom charms are round. Many of them have custom shapes like this cheerleader charm. No matter what kind of custom charm you need, we've got you covered.
Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections - Front
We make a lot of police lapel pins for departments all over the nation, but the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections decided to shake things up by ordering a set of custom charms.
Dual plating a custom charm is one of the best ways to make a memorable and meaningful design. The raised gold has a smooth and bright appearance, while the recessed silver plating is textured. Adding a gemstone to the custom charm design also helps increase the perceived value.
GCS 9 Years of Service
Most of the custom charms we help design have raised text against a sandblasted base. This design flips that idea on its head by depressing the text into the charm and leaving the surface smooth.
Georgia State University Panther Band - Back
This silver charm uses recessed sandblasting to help add contrast to the bright silver design. Sandblasted metal is less reflective than high polish metal, making it easier to create legible text.
The shape of a custom charm is completely customizable. Many people choose a round design, but banners like this "2010" pin are a popular choice as well.
Custom Made Charms For Bracelets, Necklaces and Keychains
No matter what type of design you need, our Signature Pins team is here to help. The traditional means of carrying around a charm is with a custom charm bracelet, but it’s not uncommon to see a series of charms linked to a person’s necklace or attached to a keyring. However, the most important part of a design is not where it goes; it’s how the design tells a story.
We’ve helped couples make special charms for their wedding day, custom name charms that display a company name or a family surname in honor of reunions and special events, and countless other types of custom charms. If you’re looking to preserve a special day, honor an important event or simply want to create a personalized charm design to share with the world, all you need to do is send us a few of your ideas to get started.
Creating a Personalized Charm Design
Creating a custom charm design is a lot like working on a unique pin design. The only big difference between the two is the attachment option. Pins receive a post and clutch attachment whereas charms receive a split charm loop attachment at the top of the design. This means that all charms require a small cut out or loop at the top of the design to ensure they can be easily attached to a necklace or bracelet.
The most popular type of charms are cloisonne charms. Cloisonne, or hard enamel, is known for its beautiful jewelry-quality finish and crisp detail. The bright colors, smooth texture and refined style give cloisonne designs a higher perceived value compared to the other types of charms. With that being said, we offer several other options and each has a unique look and feel.
If you’re looking for a more old school charm, choosing a die struck design is the best way to go. Die struck charms do not have any added color, allowing the metal plating to take center stage. Silver and gold metal plating are always nice choices for a die struck design, but we also have options for black metal and copper metals. Another popular option is soft enamel, which has the vibrant color of a cloisonne design and the layered texture of a die struck design.
No matter what type of charm you think will work best, you can rest assured that our team will help bring your vision to life. Choosing a style of metal plating and the right combination of colors is a great place to start, but to help your charms make a statement, consider making a custom shaped design. Whether it’s a character design, a bright star logo or any other type of object, having a custom shape is a great way to help your charms tell a story and preserve a memory for a lifetime.
