Long Oval Charm Holder
Our long oval charm holders provide flexibility in collecting your favorite charms and hooking them to your chain. They can be used to hook chains together or in any other way you need them to. They offer an easy way to add additional charms and medallions to your necklace or bracelet without the need to send your piece in. We love pairing them with our paper clip chains.
- charm holders are made entirely of 14k yellow solid gold and weigh 1 gr each (0.64 dwt)
- they measure 15 mm x 7 mm, 2 mm width.
- suggested to use with jumprings 3 mm of larger (jumprings used on our loose charms accommodate that size)
These charm holders are sold loose but we can assist if you are interested in adding them to your necklaces or pair them with your loose charms.
Direction of use:
- Hold the charm holder at the 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock mark
- Pull (do not push!) to the right to open it
- Close the charm holder by pushing down until you hear the click sound. Make sure to support the outer edge with your other hand.
- Do not open and close frequently. This will cause the mechanism to weaken and break.
- It can hold up to 5 grams of charm/s weight (perfect for a mix of our tiny, medium silhouette charms, birthstone, pave diamond and initial charms)

Photo Tips for Perfect Silhouettes
- Place subject in front of a well-lit background, facing either left or right.
- Only one side of the face must show on the photo and entire head should be in the photo.
- A relaxed face helps to show the features (eyelashes, nose, lips) more realistically although smiling faces are cute too. It's up to you how you want to photograph them.
- Pictures taken with a phone camera work too. Just make sure to take the photos in good lighting, during the daytime is preferred.
- If photographing more than one person, take individual pictures.
- Remember to take the picture straight at eye level with the person you are photographing, standing about 2-4 feet away.
- If person has long hair (past the shoulder line) put it up. Ponytails, braids, messy buns really do make for cute silhouettes and add character to the final silhouette.
- For full body silhouettes, take a picture of the people standing, walking away or towards the camera. This works well when photographing siblings.
- When photographing babies, try taking the picture when they are asleep. Hold the camera directly above their face, with only one side of the face showing.
