A charmed life

One of Massie’s infamous trademarks (besides her love of purple and need to constantly reapply lip gloss) is her charm bracelet. Here’s how to get it for less.

Premade

– Bracelets where you don’t choose each charm. Hence the name, premade. These are typically cheaper and are easier to find.

Examples

* Charlotte Russe- While not known for high quality, this store is better then shops like wet seal and forever 21. Great if you are growing out of a Massie phase, just want to try before you invest in something more expensive, or don’t feel like paying more the 10 dollars.

* Nasty Gal- Known for wild clothing, this site has a surprisingly good charm bracelet. It’s more on the edgier side though and expect to pay 18 to 30 dollars.

* Banana Republic- This store has a fantastic preppy sea inspired bracelet for around 40 dollars.

* Lucky Brand- This Massie approved jeans brand does boho chic for 45 dollars.

* Chanel- While not exactly budget friendly, these are definitely worth the money if you have some extra to spend. Expect to pay a 1000 dollars or more.

Custom made
These are typically in the higher price range, but you get your money’s worth with 18k charms, and custom plating.

Examples-

* Brighton- A sort of hybrid between the Pandora variety and a classic charm bracelet that’s super cute. Expect to pay 75-200 dollars.

* Pandora- The inventor of the so called charm bracelet craze became a household brand with it’s unique type of charms. Expect to pay 300-800 dollars.

* Tiffany- The luxury standard in charm bracelets worn by Massie herself. Expect to pay 2000-8000 dollars.

  1. Great post!
    For Christmas one year my aunt and uncle got me a Brighton Charm bracelet (nothing to do with the Clique) and I really love them, the base isn’t that expensive and then the spacers and charms are around $8 – $20 per charm or spacer, and it is fun to collect them one at a time. 🙂 Plus they’re great quality.
