A Charmed Life

When it comes to jewelry design, there are staples and there are fashion-forward ideas—and the twain don't usually meet.

Mariah Carey didn't hurt the trend when she named her last CD Charmbracelet, thereby expanding the audience from sophisticated 30- and 40-something women to include their Generation Y daughters and little sisters.
