A Pandora bracelet is a popular, personalised charm bracelet for which you can buy tons and tons of beautiful finely-crafted beads and charms. Pandora jewellery is especially fashionable with brides and Pandora beads make wonderful presents for bridesmaids, maids of honour, and the other important females in your life.
Why Pandora beads are so special
Pandora beads are individual charms that can be put together to create personal story wheel bracelets that are reminders of poignant events and achievements in your life. You might get a bead when you get engaged, one on your wedding day, one on your first anniversary, and one for each child you have. As each Pandora bracelet is designed by you, and the beads are collected over time, each one is unique.
Pandora beads are available in a number of stunning designs and can be found in numerous materials including glass, gold, oxidised silver, sterling silver and even wood. There are plenty of Pandora beads and charms that are designed with weddings in mind. These include the Pandora heart charm, the gold love Pandora bead, and the Pandora wedding cake charm.
Accessorise your bracelets with coordinating earrings, necklaces and rings to add a wow factor to your bridal look. Pandora beads or even bracelets can be given to maids of honour, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride and groom as thank you gifts.
Pandora bracelets have a number of special features:
- Each bead is screwed onto the bracelet for extra security; the beads being unable to fall off when the clasp is undone.
- Being divided into three sections by fixed beads means that the beads are evenly spaced around the bracelet.
- The bracelet clasp is designed to replicate a Pandora bead when closed so the piece looks seamless.
Where Pandora products can be purchased
Pandora beads can be bought from a large network of retailers around the world with a visit to one of their many stores the best way of making sure that your bracelet fits comfortably. Alternatively, there is an online bracelet builder and a wish list tool on the official Pandora website allowing you to show your fiancé what you would like if he’s buying you a gift for your wedding day.
You might need to measure your wrist with a tape measure to ensure you purchase the correct size. The available sizes are 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 23 cm with chains being measured from one end to the other including the clasp. Pushing a finger between your wrist and the tape will allow for the space needed for the beads and charms.
Helpfully, most items of Pandora jewellery come marked with a signature. On genuine pieces you will see the letters ALE followed by 925ss on silver jewellery and 585 on gold pieces. A plethora of other manufacturers make bracelets and beads in a similar style to Pandora jewellery and while they are cheaper to buy, it is often not possible to add non-Pandora beads to an existing Pandora-branded bracelet. This is because the charms might not fit together, with the original bracelet becoming broken if put under too much force.
