Satisfied But Leary
The bell charm is beautiful and has a nice, pleasant ring. I questioned buying it because there are 3 reviews that state it is easily bendable because it is delicate piece in which I imagine so. I normally wear my charms on a chain so I think it will be much safer than wearing it on a charm bracelet anyway. I also feel that repairs or replacement of charms should be an option within a reasonable time period, or have a protection plan in place in case something were to happen.
Perhaps the silver bell charms would be better for the charm bracelets more than the gold because silver is heavier and more durable.
Ladies with the bent charms I hope something will work out for you.
A little disappointed
Very delicate bell. Sounded amazing until...Once it’s bent a little bit it only gets worse. I keep trying to open the holes back up but it bends back every time. the appearance is amazing if that is what you are looking for - i actually wanted the jingle.

Very delicate bell. Sounded amazing until...Once it’s bent a little bit it only gets worse and when I took it in for help the sales person just pulled at it and stated there’s nothing we can do other than give you a tiny trade in amount So I had her remove it from my bracelet and it’s in a box in a drawer.

Pretty sound but it is delicate and must be protected. I will find out today about JA's promise to replace.
Jingle All the Way!
I received this charm for Christmas, and absolutely love it! It is a sweet little charm that actually jingles. It's one of my favorite charms (I have a gold dangle ring one too). It looks great on my charm bracelet. I added a red & green bead enhancer with it on the bracelet. Looks great!
Perfect size and lovely chime
I ordered this bell charm online and it arrived in perfect condition. I wear it on a James Avery chain and the little chime sound it makes is adorable. I never take it off and I have not had any problems with it being damaged or being too delicate.
Got this for my self as a dangle ring. Kind of pricey but you know what who cares get what you want even if its not your money haha. I love it
It's sooooooo cute and I'm born around Christmas
Perfect Christmas gift if you've watched the train movie with the little boy. All he wanted was a bell from santas sled
It Really Rings!
This bell is tiny and cute, but really makes a sound when it is moved.
I have bought one of these for each of my ankle bracelets. I leave the chain the length it is and use this to dangle off the final link.
This also reminds me of a children's book I used to read my kids around the holidays!
Jingles to remember ....
My bracelet has a theme, much like a mothers ring with the birthstone charms. I put the gold bell on it as a remembrance of family who are no longer with us. It is a work in progress that I plan to hand down as a fun heirloom that can be added to as the family continues to grow! It is a quality piece worthy of my plan!
I purchased the gold jingle bell and I adore it. Since I was a child I have always loved jingle bells - their sound is one of happiness and innocence. I wear it on a necklace that also has a few other small charms that represent my daughter. I find myself, many times a day, jingling the little bell, and it just makes me feel good. Certainly sights and smells are quite powerful reminders - as are sounds - and, the sound of this little bell is completely captivating. I do sleep and shower with my necklace on, and the heavy weight of the gold keeps it quite secure. When bells ring, angels get their wings.
I have been wearing this charm on my charm bracelet for a few months now. I don't wear it on my dominant hand side but so far the bell is in great condition. The bell ringing isn't that noticeable as compared to the rest of a charm bracelet so if sound is a concern it's not a problem. I grew up with Polar Express (the book) so I had to have this charm. Great buy for a cute little bell.
I will always hear it ring!
After treating myself to this adorable jingle bell charm, I moved all my Christmas theme charms to a new charm bracelet (to make room for more JA charms, of course!) My kindergarten students heard the faint tinkling of this tiny charm the very first time I wore my Christmas bracelet. It was coincidently the day I read The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Convinced that they "hear the bell" because we all believe, every little girl in my class (and a few boys who don't want to be left out on anything - especially something to do with Christmas) have asked Santa for a jingle bell like mine to wear every day!
Absolutely love it!
I have this charm in gold and wear it every day on a chain as a pendant even sleeping in it most nights. The charm is very well made and truly does ring! I highly recommend this and all James Avery products.
This charm was a gift for my daughter for her charm bracelet. The bell is so pretty and it even jingles. This is one of her favorite charms, and it really gives her bracelet that little "extra" something. Great gift for all ages!
It jingles! When I saw it I had to have it. My bracelet didn't have as many charms as it does now so it helped with the whole "jingly" of charms idea. Since I do have it on my charm bracelet, it did get a little bent.. so now it doesn't jingle; this happened because I type and write a lot so i probably pressed it against a hard surface. Probably if you wear it around your neck it won't happen.
My daughter got this attached to a ring several years ago, and she wears it almost constantly. She enjoys having a unique piece of jewelry.
My mom used this bell and the Jingle Bell Express book (long before it was a movie) to tell me the secrets surrounding the holidays. My little sister always had to have the same charms I received and actually got her bracelet taken away from her because she bit this charm! Mine is a little bent so it doesn't make noise anymore but it is pretty old and my bracelet has enough charms to make up for the noise.
My favourite charm
I got this charm for Christmas from my boyfriend. I love cats and I liked the idea of wearing little bell like people put on cats around my neck, so when I saw this charm online I knew it was exactly what I wanted. I have a silver one and I'm really happy with it. I have been wearing it around my neck every day for 6 months now and it's still like new, it jingles, it didn't get bent or anything. I saw that one of the reviewers said that it needs to be handled with special care, that's not true in my experience. I don't take it off, never, I sleep with it, shower with it, run with it.. and it's still as perfect as it was when I got it.
If you are considering buying this charm for you or your loved ones, go ahead. :) The quality of the charm is very good and you shouldn't worry about it. Just make sure you know the taste of the person you're buying this for (if it's a gift).
Great silver bell for my dog's collar
not sure what the intended use of this bell is, probably a charm bracelet, but it makes a great bell for my tiny dog's collar, I put it on her cute little tiny leather and silver collar and it looks great, along with a little cross you sell, it has a nice tinkle. would like one a bit larger as well for the bigger dog.. (he is around 10 lbs).. more tiny dog jewelry Please!!!! dogs need bling, (the bells help me keep up with them, as well as helping them to look stylish) I am sure both cat and dog owners would like this bell.. maybe sell it in a pet store, a pet store owner helped me find this one online because she didn't have a silver one in stock.. just those tacky cat ones they sell at the pet stores.. not nearly good enough for my baby...
