Key Charms

Key Charms the promise of a hidden secret

Follow Us

Key charms have always encompassed the promise of a hidden secret. Wherever there's a key, there must be a matching lock.

During the Middle Ages, wearing a Key necklace had a practical reason. Affluent ladies usually kept all their precious possessions inside a single box, and the only key to their treasures was always kept -- literally -- close to their hearts. Perhaps this is the source of the phrase "Secrets of the Hearts".

When the winds of romance swept Europe during the Renaissance era, these private keys were matching not only jewelry boxes, but private diaries of secret lovers as well.

Over the years it had become custom for the newly wed husband to present a decorated Key to his wife, as a way to show commitment and to fulfill the known adage: something old, something new, something borrowed; something blue.

Key Charms have always been made of precious metals, such as silver, gold, pewter, brass, or bronze. The charm can be worn as a pendant around the neck, or as a bracelet around the wrist. A Key Charm is a lovely present for girls and women of all ages, as a way to empower their sense of privacy and intimacy.
