  • Gifts Fit for a Princess ~ Kate is Turning 30!



    (photo via

    Happy Birthday Princess Kate!!! Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge is turning 30 and we think that she is a true Charming Chick. She is beautiful, sweet and is quickly becoming a style icon.  Reports say that she has decided to forgo a lavish and loud birthday party and instead has opted for a quiet celebration. One of the things we long about the Duchess is how conservative she and her husband Prince William are -- so much so that they decided not to have servants. How very common. We love it! She has also been spotted grocery shopping among the common folks and has bought clothing off the rack. The best thing about Kate is that she seems to be a really down to Earth royal.


    At Charming Chick we carry many items that any frugally minded, fashionable princess would love. Today we will feature some of our most popular princess items in honor of Kate's  30th birthday.




    What does every princess need? Princess cut earrings of course! These gorgeous princess cut CZ earrings are set in beautiful .925 sterling silver. They are perfect for everyday wear and look just as stunning with formal evening wear -- and a tiara! If your princess is having a birthday these would make an excellent gift.




    This is a necklace fit for royalty but at a price anyone can afford. It is set in stunning sterling silver and features an exquisite five-point crown with dazzling CZs. Another notable feature is the toggle clasp. It adds a unique element to this already special piece.  The crown measures 3/4" and the necklace is 18" long which is a great complement to almost any neckline. This piece usually ships in about 3-5 days so you'll want to give yourself plenty of time before ordering.




    If you buy the necklace above you will definitely want to add these gorgeous matching earrings to complete the look. Treat yourself or someone you love. This set is completely versatile and looks just as great with a pair of jeans as it does with an evening gown. As with the necklace, these earrings are set in precious sterling silver and when the light hits the CZs the sparkle is sure to catch everyone's eye. They look like a million bucks but are very affordable.




  • Last Minute Gift Ideas ~ Sorority Jewelry

    Sorority gift ideas...


    If you have a sorority girl on your Christmas list we have got some fantastic Christmas gift ideas for you. As you probably know, young women who belong to a sorority are fiercely loyal and dedicated to their organization. They are also very proud to wear their Greek letters and the mascots that represent their sorority. At Charming Chick we carry a large selection of  licensed Greek jewelry as well as many of the mascots that are used.


    Don't know what the letters or the mascot is for a particular sorority? No problem. We have complied a list for you and all you have to do is click on the name of the sorority you are looking for or the highlighted mascot for that sorority and you will be directed to the corresponding merchandise. This should give you some great gift ideas. We have also included a few other facts about each Greek organization so when you present the Christmas gift you can also dazzle her with your knowledge about her sorority. Just the fact that you care enough to take an interest in something that is so special and meaningful to her, will be a huge gift.

  • Teacher Gifts ~ An End of the Year Thank You

    As we mentioned in an early post, the end of the school year is almost here. For many parents, this means trying to find teacher gifts - to show your appreciation for all their hard work and dedication - throughout the year. When most of us think teacher's gifts the first things that pop into our mind are candles, candy, and coffee cups. While these do make nice gifts, teachers get a lot of them. So what can you get that will show your gratitude, and will be special and useful?

    We searched the web looking to see what teachers and parents had to say on the subject. We hope these ideas will help you on your quest for the perfect teacher's gifts.


    {Gift Idea #1}

    If your child's class is relatively small - and you want let all of the parents in on the gift - a charm bracelet with charms is a wonderful idea. Sterling silver charms aren't terribly expensive but can be very meaningful. At Charming Chick we have a large selection of charms to choose from.  We also have some beautifully crafted sterling silver charm bracelets as well.


    {Gift Idea #2}



    Teachers get a lot of knickknacks as gifts but an item that the special teacher in your life will love - and wear often - is an inspirational necklace. The verse on the pewter necklace above reads "A teacher's ordinary day is an investment in an extraordinary future."


    {Gift Idea #3}

    Teachers love to read and share with their students, so a new book or two for their classroom, would be greatly appreciated. Another wonderful gift - along the same lines - might be a gift certificate to a school supply store. Many teachers have to buy supplies out of their own pocket, so this is something they can really use.


    {Gift Idea #4}

    Our last gift, is something every teacher can use and enjoy. It is a stylish lunch tote. The great thing about this is that it can be monogrammed -- for an extra personal touch. The teacher in your life can toss the brown bag, save a tree and use this insulated lunch tote to carry her lunch to school. She'll think of you every time she uses it.
