The Charmed Life

Fresh from Halloween extravagance, some of the staff ran into Brad Goreski (@MrBradGoreski) in our beautiful downtown Charleston.  Most of you probably know him from the Rachel Zoe Project and we adooooooore his sweet sense of humor and impeccable styling.

Question of the Week: Do you have a Catalog

by ClearanceCharms

Question of the Week:

 I’d love to browse your site while sitting out on the porch, do you have a catalog you can send me?

This is a question we often receive from customers eager to browse our selection without having to connect to the internet.

At this time, we do not offer a catalog mailer – our inventory is constantly expanding and it would be most difficult to keep our customers up-to-date on our latest products, and we know how much you love to hear about our new items and deals! For the benefit of our clients, all of our in-stock merchandise is listed by category on www.clearancecharms.com so it may be updated as soon as we receive new products.

If you are concerned you are not viewing the full collection because you are unable to locate certain items, do not fear! Once our items go out of stock, they are removed from the website temporarily until they are restocked. Since we do not offer a backorder option, we recommend checking back weekly for particular items you are searching for. Remember that our popular items sell fast, especially during our amazing sales, so make sure and snatch them up before someone else does!

Our merchandise is conveniently set up by category to allow our customers to browse and search for items with ease.

If you have any questions or concerns about any items in particular, feel free to give us a call at 1-800-409-1772 or through email at info@clearancecharms.com.  Stay Charming!

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

by ClearanceCharms


The perfect autumn scents;  pumpkin spice latte, a wood burning fireplace and apple pie coming out of the oven.  In the office we may have to forgoe the baking and yuletide log, but you can bet your beads that you’ll find us in a cozy cafe sipping lattes for lunch.  The perfect cup warms us from the soul out and tickles our inspiration in the most magical way.  We can’t think of a more  perfect way to reflect on the day’s events than with a steamy mug in a sunny garden.

How do you warm up when the temperature drops?

Question of the Week: How to Avoid Tarnish

by ClearanceCharms

As we all know, sterling silver can tarnish for a variety of reasons. It is important to remember that this is very common; it is not related to the quality of the silver or the care given to the silver. Even if you take excellent care of your charms, there is still a chance that they will tarnish somewhat due to outside influences. Humidity, chemicals in the air, and body products can cause tarnish to progress.

Though silver can be cleaned with a bit of work, it is far easier to prevent the problem than fix it. Do not fear – we have the inside scoop on a few remedies personally used by some of the Clearance Charms staff.

Be conscious of the products you apply to your skin, such as perfume and lotion. Body products can affect the chemistry of the metal so be sure to let them dry and sink into your skin before putting on jewelry.  Also, wipe down your charms with a cloth after wear to cut down on build up.

Make sure your jewelry is kept in a closed space such as a jewelry box to lessen the exposure to the air. If you do not have a jewelry box, a plastic bin or Ziploc bag will work as well. Do not use cardboard as it can actually encourage tarnish.

For humidity, add pieces of chalk or silica gel (small packet that comes in shoe boxes, etc.) in with your jewelry – they will draw out moisture and chemicals in the air which affect the silver negatively.

If your charms have tarnished, be sure to read our blog on How to Clean Your Charms or try our European Polishing Cloth. Be aware that some charms have an antiquing process on them to provide a particular look or to highlight detail – don’t fret, it is not tarnish.

We hope that these few tips will keep your charms beautiful and tarnish free! If you have any additional quirky tips, please let us know!

Bunny Kisses

by ClearanceCharms

Take your cue today from one chic little bunny and be spot on trend with color blocking.  This look from Gucci is from Spring/Summer 2011 but the colors will translate beautifully into this lovely crisp fall.  Add a little more color for your wrist from NewDreamz with a bangle or completed design.

(hint: see our last post for a How-To on wearing multiple bracelets as once.  A perfect trend to use with color blocking!)

How to: Wear Multiple Bracelets

by ClearanceCharms

What’s the hot new trend popping up on the runway from New York to Milan? Arm candy! Stacked bracelets are the perfect accessory to bring a unique energy to your style. Whether you have an eclectic style or are more of a traditionalist, this fun new trend can be tailor made to fit your favorite look.

To perfect the art of stacking, take some of your favorite bracelets in varying sizes and styles and begin layering. Remember – the bracelets don’t need to match perfectly, they simply need to coordinate. If you prefer a more subdued look, choose bracelets that have similar shades as those in your ensemble; they will add an extra element without being distracting.

If you’re feeling bold, throw on multicolored bracelets that contrast the colors in your outfit – just keep in mind that you shouldn’t go overboard. One arm of statement bracelets is perfection; however both arms full may overpower you and your wardrobe. My personal favorite is mixing textures, such as Lucite and leather, in more neutral tones, and then throwing in a few pops of color.

Whichever way you wear them, wear them with confidence! Look and feel great while being oh so stylish.
