A brief and far from complete history of charms.

Charms span far and wide and may vary as to what exactly a "charm" is around the world. From good luck charms, to charms and amulets from shrines, and other countries, they may look different, used differently, but one common piece of information between all the differences, is, they are used as something important to the holder. This to many may give a charm a heavy meaning. As one would say, "In the eye of the beholder."

Man Roamed the Earth

During the Neolithic Era, as man roamed the earth in search of its new surroundings, the earliest form of charms could be considered to be found during this time period. As man would find obscure objects that would look different, look shiny, or interesting. These early men would use these as a hope to ward off enemies. As time passed many elaborate charms with precious stones and metals began to appear. Which were primarily seen during the reign of the pharos of Egypt . The Egyptians used these charms as ID tags so the gods could identify them and as a means to show their status in society

Do as the Romans do...(not?)

During the times of the Roman Empire , many Christians would employ a fish like charm, referred to as an "Ichthys". They would hide this charm where they could, and used them to gain access into secretly held worships and other forbidden activities pertaining to Christianity at the time.

Kings, Queens, Knights and Squires
