Family Birthstone Charm Bracelet

Family Birthstone Charm Bracelet

Create a beautiful bracelet with meaning for a special occasion with the birthstones of your family members.

Each month of the year has its own birthstone linked to it - some months actually have two! Each gemstone has a different meaning and properties that have been attached to them throughout history. Adding one stone to represent each family member would make a really lovely and personal gift. 

We have made our bracelet using wraptite settings and the following round faceted gemstones, aquamarine (March)peridot (August)amethyst (February) and garnet (January)

You could also create a similar look with cabochons and gallery wire settings.

Step By Step Instructions

Firstly you will need to work out the birthstones for each of your family members, if you need help you can Shop by Birthstone here.

You will need one wraptite setting per stone, to secure the stones within the wraptite setting simply pop the stone in and using a pair of round nose pliers and squeeze the connector loop at the base to tighten.

TIP: Be careful not to close the top loop up as you will need to thread your jump rings through this to connect it to your bracelet chain. Use a piece of wire to thread through the loop and use round nose pliers to squeeze the loop to tighten, leaving a gap.

Next take your 19cm mini belcher chain and measure out where you want to hang your set gemstones.

Using snipe or flat nose pliers, use a sterling silver jump ring to attach each stone and setting to your bracelet making sure that they all face the same way!

Once you have attached all of your stones and are happy with they layout your bracelet is complete. 

The great thing with this design is that you can add to it whenever you like, we sell a large selection of sterling silver charms that would look great on this too.

Why not view our selection of presentation boxes to complete the look and make a beautiful gift.
