Upload Your Own Design Charms

If you have a fantastic idea for a charm that is unique to you, you may want to take advantage of our customization options and upload your own design to your Shutterfly account. You can then use this artwork to craft a charm that is one-of-a-kind. This could be perfect for a gift for a friend or family member or just a great excuse to treat yourself to something a little different. With so many personalization choices available, you’ll be able to create any charm you desire.

Rose Gold Charms

If you have purchased one of our rose gold bracelets or necklaces, you may want to buy one of our rose gold charms to go with them. You can alter these charms into any shape you like and customize them with your favorite photos and other embellishments (such as birthstones and your initials). They also come with a handy clasp so you can remove the charm and attach it to any item of jewelry you like.

Gold Charms

Our 12K gold-plated charms are a must for anybody who likes traditional-style jewelry with a personal twist. Much like our rose gold charms, these gold charms are gold-plated, which means your charm will look fantastic but will also be of excellent value as well. You can customize these gold charms with birthstones, photos, and initials, and they’ll look great on either necklaces or bracelets. In addition, the lobster catch-lock makes it easy to swap, add, or remove charms when you fancy changing your style.

Silver Charms

If silver is more your style, you’ll love our silver charm options. Our silver charms can be personalized with photos, birthstones, and initials like all our other charm designs. Choose your charm shape (square, circle, or crystal halo) and customize your charm to match your sense of style and individuality. Then, attach your charm to any chain or bracelet you like to show off your personality or gift it to a loved one.

Birthstone Charms

Our birthstone charms are a fabulous addition to any necklace or bracelet. You can buy birthstone charms with a rose-gold, gold, or silver plate. You also have the choice of 12 stunning stones, each one representing a specific month in the calendar. However, you can also purchase these charms based on their color. So, for example, if you know somebody whose favorite color is green, you can pick up an emerald or peridot birthstone to add to their jewelry.

Photo Charms

Shutterfly photo charms are a great way to display your favorite photos and memories in a touching and thoughtful gift. We’ve found many Shutterfly customers like to purchase photo charms on Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. Some customers even like to customize these charms with photos of their cat or dog. They can be bought in gold, silver, rose gold designs, and various shapes. Attach them to one of our necklaces or bracelets to create a present that’ll put a smile on your loved one’s face.

Initial Charms

Our initial charms are a quick and easy personalized gift idea for anybody who likes custom jewelry. Simply choose the first initial of the recipient’s name (or your own if you are buying for yourself) and pick your charm design. If you want to go the extra mile, you can purchase several initial charms and spell out a heartfelt message or name on a Shutterfly bracelet.
