About Shield Charms:
History
These sterling silver enamelled travel shield charms were popular with European, British and American travelers in the 1940's, 1950's 1960's, 1970's, and are highly collectible items today. The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art.Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics). These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men or friends who were traveling abroad.

Types of Travel Shield Charms

Engliand or UK Charms
English charms usually have baked in enamel and have an ornate sterling silver scroll pattern around the edges. The place name appears in the rounded curve on the bottom in raised silver. Primarily crests of England, Scotland, Wales locations.
Austria Shield Charms
Many Austrian shield charms have a slightly different shape than the typical shields. A curve on the top. A lot of these Austrian shield charms have a gorgeous embossed Austria Crest (Österreich Wappen) on the backs.
Building or Landmark Charm
Important or famous buildings: castles, churches, universities, bridges, cathedrals & museums are depicted on these scenic travel shield charms. Notable Person Travel Shield Charms
Notable people from history are depicted on these shield charms. Favorites in my collection include Napoleon, Shakespeare, The Pope, and John F. Kennedy. Event Shield Charms
Event shield charms commemorate important events and occasions such as the Olympics, World Fairs, innagurations, The Queens Jubilee, etc. Charms in Unique Shapes
Some of the older vintage shield charms were made in different shapes and sizes than the typical shield charm. I love to find these little treasures. (See Koln top left) Ornate Reverse Side
I especially like to find the rare charm with an ornate stamping on the back. Some charms were made two sided with a crest, flag or coat of arms on the back and a scene on the front. I wish they were all made two-sided. Unique Charm Shapes
These types of enamel charms are great additions to your shield charm bracelet. These charms are about the same size, contain enamel and are also of the travel theme. Silver or Metal & Enamel
These lovely cloisonne type charms have enamel baked around the silver or metal trim of the design. Some were created using silver, others were made from base metals such as copper and brass. Enamel Bell Charms
Enamel bell charms are a beautiful addition to shield charm bracelets. They are typically from mountainous European locations. Scenic Shield Charms
Scenic shield charms. The gorgeous mountain, coastline, village scenes are like miniature postcards that document your travels.
Coat of Arms Shield Charms
These colorful charms portray heraldry, a town coat of arms, crests, state or country flags or combinations of these elements. Brass or base metal & Enamel
I really love this type of charm, even though very often they are not silver. The colors are in a warmer vintage palette and they are thicker in depth than the most popular shield charms. Flag, Crest, Coat of Arms
Heraldry, Coat of arms, crests, state or country flags or combinations of these elements. Animal or Character Charms
Everyone loves these animal charms. One of my premier themed shield charm bracelets contains all animal charms – from zoos and nature parks around the world.
Old Vintage Enamel Charms
These enamel charms have a somewhat muted vintage earthone) color scheme. They usually have a strip of silver between the name panel and the scene. The text panel fields are usually white, black or red. They don't get any prettier than this.
