Happy Halloween!

Posted on Oct 21, 2014

October is wonderful for so many reasons: Cozy sweaters and cute boots. Vibrant fall foliage at its most spectacular. Football games with hot cocoa and soft blankets. Pumpkin spice everything. If we’re being completely honest, October’s greatest trick is how it saves its best treat for the last day of the month—Halloween!

It’s undeniable that Halloween is pure giddy enjoyment and it always has been. It’s a holiday reserved for make-believe, fun, spooky thrills and candy! That’s as true for adults as it is for children, which is why this holiday is so special. No matter if you’re six or sixty-six, everyone is free for one glorious day to be a princess, superhero, ghoul, or whatever your heart desires and all in the name of fun and fun-sized candy bars!

Show your Halloween spirit with the 2014 Halloween Collection. Go classic with the Over the Moon charm, or dare to be modern and sport the Love You To Death skull charm and earrings. Or show off your glamorous side with the Swarovski-encrusted Limited Edition Halloween Cat Eyes charm. If you simply can’t decide? Treat yourself to the Witch Way Halloween Gift Set.

We hope you enjoy every treat (and even every trick) Halloween brings you this year!

October is upon us, and before you don your orange and black, think pink in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

One in eight women living today will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes. That’s a frightening number, to be sure. However, there is so much hope to take comfort in. Breast cancer has a 99% five-year survival rate with early detection.

Figures such as these are why National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is so important. Such initiatives are vital in raising money for research and support for patients. By raising awareness, we can arm women with the knowledge they need for prevention and early detection. October also gives women a chance to hear the beautiful stories of courage from millions of breast cancer survivors around the country.

In honor of the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative*, which supports women in the fight against breast cancer, Chamilia is proud to offer several options. This fall’s Breast Cancer Give Back Collection features beautiful bracelets and charms made with the Chamilia’s signature fine craftsmanship and style, because we want to support causes that matter to you—and to us.

Wear any of these beautiful pieces to raise awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Wear them to honor a survivor who is important to you, or as a reminder to your commitment to perform your monthly self breast exam.

*The American Cancer Society does not endorse any product or service.

Best Friends

Posted on Sep 24, 2014

She’s been there for everything. She was there with ice cream when you got dumped. She was there with champagne when you got that job you fought so hard for. She was even there with ginger ale and her van when you got the flu and just could not do the morning school run. She answers the phone in the middle of the day and night, ready to talk out anything.

You have a shorthand for everything and sometimes all you have to do is look at her and she can tell what you’re thinking. She knows who your celebrity crush is and she doesn’t judge you for it. She’s told you the truth about every dress you’ve ever tried on in her presence and she reminds you that when it doesn’t look great, the problem is the dress, not you. She encourages you to be your best every day. And you do all of this for her too, because you love her like family—family you picked. She’s your best friend, and your life would be lacking without her.

When we were kids, we used to declare someone our best friend by making a friendship bracelet from string or, if we were really lucky, with necklaces shaped like two halves of a heart that said “Best Friends” when you fit them together. Life has changed a bit since those days, but isn’t the sentiment still the same? Having a best friend like yours is something worth celebrating, worth declaring. Let her know that the friendship you share is important to you, just like when you were little. Pairing charm bracelets with the Best Friends charm will show her just how you feel. She remembers those necklaces too… and she feels the same about you.

Wonderful Wanderlust

Posted on Sep 08, 2014

J.R.R. Tolkein wrote in The Lord of the Rings, “Not all those who wander are lost.” How right he was! Some of you who wander know just exactly what you’re doing—you’re coming back to yourselves.

The siren call of wanderlust is powerful. World adventures beckon and you must answer. You book a ticket, pack a bag and go. Glamorous cities, sacred temples, exotic beaches, untamed wilderness—every place is new and different, offering you a renewed sense of curiosity.

Every adventure has something amazing to inspire you. Travel brings you new opportunities to explore, wonder, and learn, not just about different places and cultures, but about yourself. Wandering teaches you who you are and that’s what makes it wonderful. Travel, like nothing else, helps you design your life in vivid color, breathtaking detail, and unmatched quality—and Chamilia has the charms to match.

To celebrate the undying wanderlust in each of us, Chamilia is thrilled to announce the kick-off of our #WhereDoesChamiliaTakeYou campaign! Simply click https://www.facebook.com/ChamiliaJewelry?sk=app_211058802266771 by October 14th and enter for a chance to win our traveling bracelet on Facebook! You can also tune in to our Facebook page to see where the traveling bracelet is now. We encourage all to share a photo of your Chamilia creations at the beach, camping, or on a cross country road trip. We look forward to hearing from you!

Celebrating Fall

Posted on Aug 13, 2014

It is never easy to say goodbye to summer, but there is definitely consolation to be found in the beauty of fall. The foliage, the crisp air… It all adds up to a winding down. The days are shortening, the nights are cooling and you finally get to snuggle again!

At Chamilia, we’re not mourning summer—we’re celebrating fall! Our new 2014 Fall Collection is finally available and we couldn’t be more excited about our new offerings.

For those of you stricken with wanderlust, we’re happy to present our new travel designs featuring sterling silver charms depicting accoutrement and modes of travel like the Drop Top Roadster. A spotlight piece in this collection is the teal Around the World charm. It’s the perfect centerpiece for an homage to your jetsetting tendencies.

The Royals Collection in beautiful Murano glass will add lush, vibrant jewel tones to any bracelet. We think they’re especially beautiful accents for our new Family Ties Collection. Each family disc charm features a design on the back specific to each family member, while a repeated heart motif connects them together, representing the love that families share.

So design your newest charm bracelet and join us this month by celebrating the coming of fall!
