If you require more than ten charms please purchase one charm and I will send you an invoice for the correct amount. There is no limit to the quantity you can order, I can cater for corporate orders of several hundred also. Please note the options available for order gift cards and organza bags also. When you check out via paypal please let me know:
(a) What shape charm you would like.
(b) What colour charm you would like.
(c) What colour ring you would like - gold or silver.
(d) What text you would like for each charm (please bear in mind the shape of the charm and how much text will fit comfortably.
(e) Your choice of colour glass or swarovski crystal or pearl.
(f) Your choice of separator bead (ie small silver, small gold, cream faux pearl or ivory faux pearl).
Choosing the right length for your bracelet or necklace
¨ All our jewellery is made to your preferred length. The measurements shown on all of the necklace and bracelet pages are from end to end and include the clasps.
¨ The easiest way is to ensure you order the right length is to measure a bracelet or necklace you already have and are happy with. If the length you would like is not shown as an option simply let us know the length you would like when placing your order and we will make it for you.
¨ To measure for a bracelet, wrap a tape measure around your wrist bone and then add 1 inch to that measurement to find the correct length for you.
¨ Detailed below is a guide to necklace lengths. Please note that people’s neck sizes are very different so this is an approximate guide only.
14” Petite choker length
16” Choker length
18” Will reach the collarbone
20” Will fall a few inches below the collarbone
¨ Again, necklaces can be made in any length you would like. Please note that for extra long necklaces a small additional fee may be added.

¨ Swarovski pearls – These are the highest quality glass pearl on the market. They have a leaded crystal core that makes them heavier than cheaper imitation pearls and a high lustre pearl coating. They are resistant to scratching.
¨ Freshwater pearls – These are grown inside a mussel and are the result of a foreign object inside the shell. Many pearls, both natural and cultured, have beautiful colour and lustre, making them the perfect item to create stunning and timeless bridal accessories.

¨ As each product is handcrafted, there may be very slight variations to the photo on this website.
¨ All sizes are approximate.
¨ Charms and Tiaras does not take responsibility for any tarnishing that may occur to metals used. Tarnishing is caused by gases which are found naturally in the air. Please see our guidelines on caring for your jewellery.
Caring for your items
¨ As all our items are handmade and are of a delicate nature, please take care and wear your jewellery and tiaras gently. Avoid unnecessary stress at the clasps to prevent breakage.
¨ Always keep your tiara or jewellery dry. Never submerse your item in water by either washing or swimming in it as this can cause discolouration of pearls and crystals and also cause thread to break.
¨ Ideally store your items in their individual gift packaging to avoid scratching, tangling of chains or tarnishing of metals.
¨ Naturally occurring oxidants found in the air and oils in the skin will tarnish your tiara and jewellery. If silver tarnishes it can be easily cleaned up by using a silver cloth, which is a soft duster impregnated with a silver polish.
¨ Never squirt perfume when wearing your jewellery and please protect your tiaras or headdresses from hairspray as this can significantly dull the sparkle of your crystals, discolour pearls and tarnish metals.
¨ Swarovski crystals and pearls can be cleaned by simply buffing them gently with a soft lint free cloth.
¨ Never submerse your personalised wine glass charms in water as this will cause eventual disintegration of your charms.
¨ Orders may be cancelled within 4 working days of receipt of your order. Cancellations after the 4 days have expired will be subject to a 25% labour fee to cover the cost of materials ordered/used and time spent making your item.
¨ The items featured on this website are not intended to be used as toys. Many of the materials used in the making of the products contain very small components and some exposed wire.
