Parisian Charm

Nearly every day at least one of us at Daily Grommet is wearing a LilyMe charm bracelet or necklace. Joanne has the bracelet with three sterling-silver disc charms with the names of her kids on them, and Jen never takes off her bracelet. But wait, before you jump to any conclusions – these are nothing like your grandmother’s charm bracelet with the miniature replicas of knitting baskets, ice skates and rotary phones. LilyMe is all about understated charm. Instead of a heavy link bracelet, LilyMe’s jewelry is mounted on a thin satin cord (you choose the color) with unexpectedly cool slipknots. The charms themselves are simple and chic. You can personalize a disc or heart, or choose from funky butterfly, flower, clover and peace designs. The effect is a hip, casual look that still has all the personality of vintage charm jewelry but none of the clunkiness. Grommet friend Vera Duin (on the left) introduced us to LilyMe, which traces its design roots to France. The founder of the company is Parisian-born Gaelle de Bernede, who lives in New England and regularly travels to Europe looking for the best styles to import. Gaelle scored a huge hit with these French gems, which make a great gift for teens and young adults. Moms love personalizing the charms with the name of a spouse or child, too. It’s a beautiful way to keep loved ones close, even during the busiest days.

    Hello, I have such a passion for jewelry that I have decided to share with you one of France’s trendiest fashion jewelry: easy to wear, fun and personalized necklaces and bracelets, made of colorful satin cords and sterling silver or gold plated charms. I make them here in Massachusetts and I have been selling them through private sales around Boston and now on my eCommerce site www.lilyme.com. Teenagers and mothers love to wear them and never take them off!

    I would love to hear what you think of my jewels and look forward to chatting with you.

    Hi Gaelle,

    I'm so happy to see that the collection is growing, because I love these charms.. By the way, I always wear mine, and my Spanish friend just loved her light green bracelet with the "Paris" engraved word !

    I look forward to having more gifts to offer to my friends, and I'm thinking of those who just give birth and I'm sure they'd be happy to have a personnalized bracelet or necklace with the name of their child.

    Thank you for creating these chic and trendy charms!

    The bracelets are awesome. Tres jolie! They are stylish and trendy. I got hooked up since Gaelle started her company, as well as many of my friends. Now, my daughter Sophie (10) discovered it too! She has the light purple bracelet with a beautiful silver rose. Really pretty. I love the video Jen and Gaelle! Great featuring.

    these are cute. can i buy one bracelet with one charm and then buy a few more separate charms to add to that one bracelet? Or is the cord so thin it would be good just for one charm each. I like the look of Gaelle's bracelet with the many charms.

    I was in Paris this summer - these lovely cord bracelets are everywhere! I rarely saw people wearing only one. More often, they were wearing 3 or 4, all different colors and with different charms on them. I never take mine off; they have a special place in my heart! Thanks, Gaelle!
