Who started the charm bracelet fad?

Queen Victoria! Besides always wearing black, never showing her ankles, and loving her morning garb, Vicky loved her jewelry, and one of her favorite pieces was her charm bracelet. Now let's face it charm bracelets have been around forever in the form of amulets but the 'modern' fad began during the "Victorian Era'
As the bracelet evolved for the common folk throughout the 1920s through the early 50s, charm bracelets became symbols of life events, with the charms gathered through time. Many times charms were purchased on vacation or as birthday presents. A young girl knew she was becoming a woman when she received her first charm bracelet. I have a wonderful example of the typical 1950s charm bracelet curated in my Etsy store.
