The latest addition to our range of Italian Charms is our Superlink charms. Our Superlink Charms are sophisticated, of a high quality, are not bulky and provide legible writing on a 'white' enamel background.

A Superlink's measurements are:

  • the same height as a 9mm charm
  • our superlink will connect to all Italian Charms and Italian Charm Bracelets and;
  • it's double the width at 18mm of a standard 9mm Italian Charm

We have designed an extensive range of Medical Alert Superlink charms with comfort & quality in mind.

These charms are all Enamel 'thin' chips with gold tone trim.


Crushed ceramic particles are baked and then poured into the Design 'chip' to create a natural reflective base. These are truly beautiful charms and are truly the 'top of the range'.

Chips are manufactured as either 'thin' or 'thick' chip, with either gold or silver tone trim.


Dangle Charms are made in either a similar manner to the Enamel Charm chips, with the addition of a dangle attachment to the link or a dangle attachment only. The dangle charm link itself is either attached to the front or at the base of the link.

Finishes such as 'glitter' backgrounds, Rhinestones or a clear enamel coating are added during the production process and are noted in our listing.


The Design for the enamel charm is created on a 'chip’. The chips are then either soldered or glued (using a jewellers glue) onto an Italian Charm link. Chips are manufactured as either 'thin' or ‘thick’ chip, with either gold or silver tone trim.

Finishes such as 'glitter' backgrounds, Rhinestones or a clear enamel coating are added during the production process and are noted in our listing.


Photo charms are made using High Quality Photo paper. Images or designs are printed and then glued onto a Blank Photo Charm dish link.
