Pandora. The creators of beautiful bracelets and charms has recently been unveiled as the official sponsor for the Girls Aloud 10 year anniversary tour, with each girl designing a very special bracelet to commemorate this special event. So, when I was approached by John Greed, the leading UK stockist of official Pandora jewellery, with a view to reviewing a Pandora bracelet and charms, I was, of course, very interested.
I consider myself to be a jewellery aficionado, particularly when it comes to bracelets, but am quite embarrassed to say that I didn’t own a Pandora bracelet. I was interested to see how Pandora would compare to other High fashion brands in jewellery.
The Pandora starter bracelet is a great place to begin your Pandora collection. The single woven leather strand is very understated, making it perfect for wearing in the daytime with casual wear, or with a little black dress for an evening occasion. The black bracelet is also a perfect blank canvas in which to showcase your beads of choice, making a striking setting for both silver, and Murano glass style beads. I also believe that this bracelet is also perfect for both sexes, coming in three different sizes to cater for a larger male wrist.
My bracelet was completed with an exquisite open-work flower charm, which is surrounded on both sides by the silver heart beats spacer charm. This looks so pretty as it is, but the great thing about Pandora bracelets is that you can continue to add more charms. Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, special anniversary, or just for a payday treat, a gift of a new charm is something to cherish, and helps make your bracelet very, very special, and personal to you.
I’m now a converted fan of the Pandora brand, the bracelets just make the perfect gifts for any occasion. I cannot go without mentioning the packaging. Even the smallest charm comes in oh so stylish packaging with the iconic Pandora symbol making this a much lusted after option. Husbands and boyfriends – Valentine’s Day is just over a month away – make a mental note in your diary now!
