“ Manufacturer: Thomas Sabo / Type: Charm „
If you are unsure of who Thomas Sabo are, it is a brand of jewellers which offer a range of fairly unique, yet costly pieces. They are most well known for their charm bracelets and 'charm club' where you can pick out various charms to create and design your bracelet specifically to you. My bracelet has currently only got four charms on it, and this 'Faith, Love, Hope Anchor' is one of them.
This is actually one of the cheaper charms and retails at £21.95 which if you are aware of Thomas Sabo is a good price. Most others retail at £50.00 or more so this was a bargain in my eyes. I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift from my boyfriend which is excellent. If you are interested in buying anything from Thomas Sabo, I would buy directly from them, or use their website to discover which genuine retailers sell the products as there are an awful lot of fakes out there, and you would wan the real thing.
The presentation of how I received the gift was absolutely lovely. It came in a gorgeous Thomas Sabo bag, and then was tissue wrapped inside. You get a tiny little circular box which opens up to reveal the charm. It is all very thoughtfully wrapped which makes the experience that little bit nicer, especially if it is a gift for somebody else.
As you can see from the image, the charm itself is all silver in colour and is shaped like an anchor with a heart in the middle. There is just a plain anchor available as well, however it was the same price so I picked out this one for my present instead as it had a little more meaning to it. When I pick out charms, I often like to go for coloured, enamelled ones which stand out. However, I feel it is also essential to have some basic charms to even it out, and not have too much on your bracelet. I love anchors and nautical themes and this is reflected in the things which I wear and the jewellery I buy, so I felt this was perfect for me.
The charm itself is made from 925 Sterling Silver and is 1.8cm in height, which is quite small but a sufficient size for a charm bracelet. Another thing which I felt was nice about the charm which I had not discovered until later on was that it has a meaning behind it. The charm represents faith, love and hope which is nice, especially when it is received from somebody that means a lot to you.
It attaches easily on to the Thomas Sabo charm bracelets and looks lovely when on. I have had this charm for around a year now and it still looks as good as when I first received it and does not seem to damage easily at all. The only niggle which I have found with this charm is that it does tend to get hooked on to things quite easily. I have faced many a time where it has got stuck to jumpers, cardigans and other clothing types which is annoying as you have to unhook it. It does get a nuisance after a while though and frequently happens.
Other than this, it is a beautiful charm which means a lot to me. Despite always getting attached to my clothing I do wear it daily and think it is beautiful, especially for its relatively small price tag for a Thomas Sabo charm. It is of a high quality and I would recommend it to all. Thanks for reading.
