May 18, 2018Column: Armchair TravelerColumn: FeaturedColumn: stylish souvenirsColumn: Uncategorized

Since we’re celebrating all things British and royal this week in honor of Meghan and Harry’s forthcoming Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle, we thought it would be fun to feature some of our favorite travel charms from our British and London charm collection. I love England and have been many times so it is no surprise that we included many London charms and also charms for the United Kingdom when we launched our travel charm collection back in October 2014. Below is a British charm bracelet featuring a variety of travel charms for both London as well as charms representing the U.K.
