Remember your grandmother’s charm bracelet?
That big, chunky, yellow, gaudy, bracelet with a billion charms dangling from it?
My, how times have changed.
Today’s charm bracelets are modern, hip and a sure eye-pleaser.
Plus you can create themes too. You’d be impressed with the beautiful styles of wonderful charms, dangles and designs.
If you’ve never thought about owning a charm bracelet, you should think twice, because Pandora’s charm bracelet is taking the jewelry industry by storm (And that’s not Pandora’s box). I’m talking about the Pandora bracelet & Pandora charm line.
Pandora bracelets are different than any other type of charm bracelet out there because of its patented threads and the way it separates the charms on the bracelet (U.S. Pat. No. 7,007,507).
The bracelets are triple threaded and wound for strength and durability.
Then the bracelet is actually sectioned off into 3 parts. These separate sections do one thing really good, they keep your charms from spinning all the way around the bracelet.
It’s actually a very clever design if you think about it. All the charms don’t congregate on the bottom of the bracelet. The bracelet doesn’t get bottom heavy so the charms won’t get scratched and harmed. The separators also make it easy to move the charms around. Put the “red heart” one next to the “love you” charm.
It’s simple and fun!
The separators do a wonderful job of spacing your charms apart. It keeps your bracelet balanced and even… And looks great!
You can buy these bracelets in sizes anywhere between 6.3″ and 9.1″ (Don’t ask me why they have such odd sizes). No matter what though, they should be able to fit any wrist out there.
Bracelets come in either sterling silver, a combination of silver and gold, or just plain solid gold. Prices start at $35 and up. Gold starts at $1050 and up (Which is why most people buy the sterling silver bracelet). That’s my favorite anyway.
The charms that go on these bracelets start at just $25 and up (Price depends on the type of metal and gemstones used). The charms are all unique and handmade. And let me tell you, they have some of the cutest little charms you will ever see! Take a look…
Some charms are only available in silver…
Some charms are only sold in gold.
Some come in mixed silver and gold.
But you’ve got to see them all up close. You’ll love them. They’re sure to make you crack a smile and want to show them off. Pandora is always updating their line, so some of the charms pictured may already be discontinued. But don’t fret, they’ll be replaced with more fun, enchanting charms. You’ll just have to see them for yourself.

So now that you’ve read about the great selection of Pandora charms and seen some wonderful pictures of them, let’s continue…
Pandora charms are great because they’re so darn adorable.
Affordable = :)
Most of them are extremely affordable. I suggest buying the bracelet as a gift for a birthday, anniversary, mother’s day, or Christmas present. Buy a couple of charms to start it off also.
I would recommend 3, one for each section. And then from there on, every time another occasion comes up, you will know exactly what gift to buy her…more charms! Get a couple for the holidays and special events and you’ll have the bracelet filled up in no time. Kids love it, because it’s a wonderful gift and cheap.
Create a theme:
And the themes you can create with it are endless.
With a tag line of “unforgettable moments“, they certainly are right. They promote such unforgettable events like “college graduate” “my 30th birthday” “published book” “promoted” “vacation in Rome” “fell in love“… These are the special moments in life that we want to capture and remember forever. This bracelet is perfect for doing just that.
Each Pandora bracelet has a beautiful well-made clasp with the name Pandora engraved right into it. Little details like that are what makes this bracelet a great bracelet to own.
Extras that you can get for the bracelet include; spacers, danglers, letters and my favorite charms of all… The murano glass beads. These beads are absolutely stunning. Murano makes the best glass in the world, and these little beautifully designed, beads are breathtaking. They are bright, colorful and will add sparkle and beauty to any bracelet. I highly advise checking them out.
The company also carries more than just bracelets. They also carry necklaces, earrings, rings and brooches, not to mention those great clasp openers (opens the clasp easily with just a slight pressure).
They also carry a multitude of great gemstone beads. Beautiful colors, great designs, these beads hold some very popular, unique and interesting Gems. The list includes:
- Cubic Zirconium
- Mother of Pearl
This list of gemstones is like a color of rainbows.
It’s astounding. You won’t have any problems matching your moods and personality to all the great shades and hues and tones.
Easy to maintain:
The bracelet is easy to maintain also. The best way to clean it is just to use mild soap and water and a little tooth brush to scrub out the dirt and debris.
You can’t beat that for simple.
They do suggest keeping the bracelet away from harsh chemicals, liquid silver polish, pools, spas, and hot tubs (anything with strong chemicals in it). But then again, I would recommend keeping ALL sterling silver away from those things. If your bracelet starts to dull up, there’s an easy fix… Take it to a local jeweler and have them give it a quick polish on the buffing wheel. It’ll look brand new again in just a couple of minutes. If you take care of your bracelet, you’ll enjoy it for many years to come.
If, by chance, you have any problems with your bracelet, the company and its 4 country-wide locations will take care of you. They do offer a 2 year warranty against manufacturer’s defect. This includes the bracelet, the clasp, the threads, and any gems that might come out. Normal wear and tear is not covered under the warranty.
I love these bracelets. They’re beautiful, stunning and very versatile. It’s amazing the different looks and combinations you can come up with. No two bracelets will ever be the same.
Choose your colors, add your initials, pick your lucky charms; like the heart, cross, anchor charm which stands for faith, hope & charity. The angel of hope which is darling… Or the pink ribbon which stands for breast cancer awareness… (which they also donate to)
You basically can design your own fun bracelet and mix and match any charms you like. With Pandora, the quality of the workmanship, the durability of their special threaded bracelet, and the ability to custom create a stunning look, will certainly make you fall in love with Pandora too!
