THE CHARMED LIFE
Clip-on charms and magnetic bracelets.
Now that every jeweller has got in on the many-ways-you-can-have-your-charms act (like sports and designer brands have with sneakers), how does one differentiate itself from the rest? Well, Swarovski’s Remix range does have what others have – a variety of charms (40, to be exact, from letters to birthstones) – and its bracelet holds as many as seven little pendants. What it has that others
don’t: The charms clip on so they stay put; and this being a Remix, each end of the bracelet is magnetic, which means it connects to another bracelet, and another, until they become a choker, necklace or whatever you want. Now, that’s differentiation. From $59 for a charm to $90 for a bracelet. For our picks of must-have charms, go to our digital edition.
