Helen Ficalora created the original alphabet charm necklace from her home almost two decades ago. The alphabet charm necklace is often used to symbolize a persons own initial, their children's initial, or a loved one's initials. Each letter charm has its own unique meaning to the person that wears it. The alphabet charms became a huge hit after Helen launched personal 14k gold necklaces.
The letter charms are worn on bracelets and necklaces by celebrities in magazines, newspapers, television shows and movies. People line up around the block at Helen's New York flagship store for her new iconic solid 14k gold personal charms.
