1) WHAT IS THE IDEA OF A NOMINATION BRACELET?
Nomination’s signature bracelet is a charm bracelet called the Composable Bracelet. Instead of traditional charms the Composable Bracelet is made up of a series of Decorated Links that allow you to create the bracelet by clipping the Links together. You can choose from 2000 precious letters and symbols in 18k yellow gold, 9K rose gold and sterling silver to personalise your Composable Bracelet Link by Link.
2) WHAT IS A NOMINATION CHARM?
Nomination charms are different from traditional charm bracelet pendent charms, in fact, we call them LINKS because they “link” together to create the Composable Bracelet. Each Link is decorated with a letter, symbol or gemstone and is approximately 1cm wide, 0,9cm high and lies flat against your wrist. Each Link can be added, removed or replaced thanks to the ingenious spring mechanism hidden inside each Link. What makes Nomination’s Composable Links extraordinary is that each symbol is hand made in Italy using 18K yellow gold, 9K rose gold or sterling silver and then decorated with coloured enamel, Cubic Zirconia, precious and semi-precious stones and natural diamonds, in the best Florentine goldsmith tradition.
3) HOW CAN I CREATE MY VERY OWN PERSONALISED COMPOSABLE BRACELET?
Have fun creating your personalised bracelet in “Create Your Bracelet”. Choose the base colour, the right length for your wrist size, and the height you want. Then choose from among the hundreds of Links available, using the filters and “Search” field to help you look. Click on the Link you want, and drag and drop it to exactly where you want the charm to be on your bracelet. Add your Links one by one until you’ve created your perfect, one-of-a-kind bracelet. Add it to your Wish List or Shopping Bag and click “Checkout” to buy it straight away. The Composable bracelet was born from the idea that by customising your jewellery it becomes one-of-a-kind and special. It’s for this reason that it’s not enough to buy just the bracelet base but it’s necessary to add at least one decorative Link.
4) ARE NOMINATION BRACELETS UNISEX?
Nomination’s signature bracelet is a charm bracelet called the Composable Bracelet. Nomination’s Composable Bracelets can be created ANY SIZE and ANY STYLE, so yes the collection is unisex and ageless, because YOU decide what the bracelet looks like choosing from 2000 Decorated Links. From unicorns and flamingoes for children, romantic hearts and precious gemstones for women or sport symbols and geometric designs for men; modern or traditional the Composable Bracelet has Decorated Links to suit every age, taste, style and occasion.
5) CAN I BUY INDIVIDUAL LINKS AND ADD THEM TO A COMPOSABLE BRACELET WHICH I ALREADY HAVE?
Of course, that’s the whole idea behind Composable: add charms one by one to remember special moments as they happen and make your bracelet change with you, so it’s always as you unique as you are.
To buy individual Links, check out "Composable – Links & Charms”. Use the filters to help find the right size Links for your existing bracelet (Big or Classic) and choose the themes you want. Have fun with the over 2,000 Links available!
6) WHAT SIZES DO NOMINATION BRACELETS AND CHARMS COME IN?
Nomination’s Composable bracelet is available online in two different heights, which are not interchangeable:
- Classic size – Link height = 0,8 cm
- Big size – Link height = 1,2 cm
Before getting more Links for yourself or for someone close to you, double-check you’ve got the right Link size.
Links from the Composable Collection are not compatible with bracelets from the Trendsetter Collection.
7) CAN I PUT CHARMS ON NOMINATION TRENDSETTER?
The Trendsetter Collection features bracelets that also use Composable Component Links as part of the bracelet. The Trendsetter bracelets are available different widths and these do correspond to the Composable Link sizes: CLASSIC & SMARTY, but only one size of Composable Link is widely available: CLASSIC. Please check the size of each item you wish to insert into the same bracelet, we strongly recommend you contact our Customer Services department if you have any doubts about your order.
8) HOW DO I ATTACH A NOMINATION CHARM WITHOUT A TOOL?
Adding, removing, and changing around your Links is super easy! It may take one or two tries the first time, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy-peasy. Watch our how-to tutorial, and see just how simple it is to personalise your Composable bracelet. If you encounter any difficulties, don’t fret: use the Composable Charm Tool which makes it even easier to personalise your jewellery.
9) HOW DOES NOMINATION TOOL WORKS??

But we would love to hear your ideas for new symbols. Send us your charm suggestions at email@example.com and we’ll pass them along to our Design Department. Our team will also propose similar existing Links and indicate Links you may like which can be engraved.
12) DO ANY COMPOSABLE LINKS HAVE A COLOURED BASE?
All Composable bracelet Links containing letters or charms have a stainless steel base (grey). For production reasons, it’s not possible to create them on a coloured base. But you can alternate coloured Links with Links containing letters and charms. Create your own look, or get inspired by ours at “Composable - Bracelets”.
13) HOW MUCH IS A PLAIN NOMINATION BRACELET?
Nomination does not sell “plain Nomination bracelets”, the Links on the Composable Bracelet without symbols are called Component Links as they are used to complete your bracelet, once you have chosen the Decorated Links you wish to purchase. As most people need at least 18 Links to complete their bracelet this means you can start your Composable Bracelet with just one Decorated Link, and then add more and more Links as you celebrate the people and special occasions in your life. The Component Links cannot be purchased separately, they are available to complete or re-size the Composable Bracelet only.
14) ARE NOMINATION BRACELETS EXPENSIVE?
No, Nomination Composable bracelets are not expensive. Each Decorated Link, in the Composable Collection, is made with only the highest quality stainless steel (304 or 316) and decorated with 18K yellow gold, 9K rose gold or sterling silver, coloured enamel. Cubic Zirconia, precious and semi-precious stones and natural diamonds. Each Link is a small jewel belonging to the best Florentine goldsmith tradition, hand-made in Italy. Composable Bracelets with just one Decorated Link start from approx. €40 / £40 / US$ 55.
15) HOW CAN YOU TELL A FAKE NOMINATION BRACELET?

17) CAN YOU SHOWER WITH A NOMINATION BRACELET?
To avoid damaging your jewellery in anyway we recommend that you remove all your jewellery when you shower or bathe; water or chlorine can compromise the shine of the jewellery so take off your jewellery when swimming and at the Spa.

20) ITALIAN CHARM BRACELET HISTORY
The Composable Bracelet is what became known as the “Italian charm bracelet” or “Nomination bracelet”. It is Made in Italy and was first created by Nomination in the 1980s. Its creator, Paolo Gensini, is the founder of Nomination, and he changed the jewellery world with this innovative combination of stainless steel and precious materials like 18K yellow gold, 9K rose gold and sterling silver and stones. The ingenious mechanism that “links” each of the precious elements, or Links, together to form each bracelet was something no-one had ever made before. Like most fashion and style influences, its popularity also spread thanks to travellers seeing it on the wrists of Italians, already known for their fashion sense. The Composable bracelet then became famous around the world in the late 1990s. Today the Composable Collection includes 2000+ Decorated Links to choose from to create personalised bracelets to treasure forever.
