Rembrandt Introduces Line of Custom Engraved Charms

Rembrandt Charms new
The newest line of charms from Rembrandt 

Rembrandt Charms’ latest collection features fingerprint and custom engraved charms, made with state-of-the-art laser engraving technology.

“We are thrilled to offer this new collection to our retail jewelers and their charm collectors,” said Eric Lux, president of Buffalo, N.Y.–based Rembrandt. “Charms represent the most sentimental moments in one’s life, and we wanted to offer our loyal charm collectors the opportunity to truly create a one-of-a-kind charm. During our soft launch, feedback was extremely positive from our retail jewelers and their charm collectors, sports teams, schools, and organizations which received these charms. Retail jewelers stated these charms were most commonly attached to our charm bracelets and necklaces.”

The Buffalo, N.Y.–based company also reports an increase in Shop-in-Shop, a designated area within a jewelry store—designed to complement that store—where shoppers can view Rembrandt’s extensive collection.

“While we have implemented many Shop-in-Shops throughout our company’s history, we are thrilled that today more of our retail jewelers are requesting this magnificent presentation,” said Lux.
