What is a Red Wine Charm? Learn About These Great Jewelry Gift Options
A red wine charm can mean any number of things, but to most it is either a small charm like you would put on a charm bracelet (shaped like a glass of red wine, naturally), a small ring with a plastic bauble on it that you put around the stem of your red wine glass, or a fancy tassel that you can put around a bottle of red wine to liven up its appearance a bit. No matter what sort of red wine charm you’re talking about, there’s a reason to have one!
First up is the red wine charm that goes on your charm bracelet. What’s the point of this? It’s quite simple-it says something about you. Charm bracelets are all about collecting mementos of your past and personality and collecting them in one easy place to find and admire. The little charm that looks like a glass of red wine lets everybody know that you are a wine hobbyist and have “graduated” to the upper echelon by becoming a red wine drinker. Sure, it may sound snooty, but it’s all in good fun!
Another good example of a red wine charm is one of those little plastic rings you put around the stem of a glass of red wine. These are great for simply accentuating things and mixing it up a bit. The best part? You can make them yourself! If you can find them to buy and/or just aren’t that crafty, that’s great, but you can definitely find all the parts you need to make them at most craft shops. All you need are some colored beads and metal hoops that can be closed using pliers. Just make sure the beads are the appropriate size to fit over the wire of the hoops. Just put whatever color of bead you want on the hoop, take your needle nose pliers and bend the metal a bit so it will close and you’re done! Open the hoop so that you can put it on the stem of your red wine glass and then close it again. You have your red wine charm!
The last iteration of a red wine charm is a simple tassel that you can put on a bottle of red wine to spruce it up a bit. Many folks, not satisfied with just showing off their exquisite wine collection, have taken to decorating their bottles with fancy holders, racks, or other accessories. This kind of red wine charm is simply a fancy cloth tassel with a hoop on the end that you can loop over the neck of your bottle. A great thing about this red wine charm is that it can easily double as a curtain tie-back, a napkin ring, or a decoration for drawer or door handles or candle tapers.
The deeper you get into the wine hobby, the more crazy accessories and other stuff you will find, both decorative and useful. If you’re really into wine, you’re going to want to snatch some of these up!
