As you may know, I love Jewellery! No surprise there I’d say.
Over the next while I hope to incorporate this into my blog more and more! I have done a few posts in the past, but I hope to talk you through my collection over the coming months.
This week’s post is all about my Pandora charm bracelet collection. I plan on doing my ring and earring collection too, some will be longer than others. This week’s is VERY long, but hopefully an interesting read. So grab a cup of tea or coffee (and a biscuit or two) and enjoy!
I love Pandora. I think it’s a great brand and a great concept!
I love charm bracelets so when this new concept came out I was all over it! I actually started my Jewellery career in Pandora so I got the brain washing ( ha ha ), and the discount! Over the years I’ve created a beautiful collection that I’m really happy with. I do intent to add more of the Pandora Rose over the next while though.
Before we start, I will say that Pandora often discontinues items so what I have might not be available any longer. You might be able to get some of them in the discount stores, but I couldn’t be sure! Ok Let’s start!
Q. Can your Pandora snake bracelet be made smaller?
I’ve often been asked this question and knew that this was possible but never knew anyone that had it done or knew anyone that would be willing to do it.
I’ve found a place, Rocks Jewellers on Grafton St. It was super easy and the staff were very nice. I myself had a 20cm bracelet which was much too big for me after I’d lost weight so I decided to get it shortened. I was going on holidays and hadn’t been wearing my bracelet anyway, so for me it was the best time to do it.
I had been measured for a new Pandora bracelet and was suggested a size 18cm (which would probably stretch out a bit) so I decided to go with that size. I got 1cm taken from each side, this costs more and there is more work but I am all about the symmetry so I did it. It cost €30, half the price of buying a whole new one. I have to say was worth every penny.
(The Top Bracelet Is a Brand New Pandora, The Bottom One Is My Own)
Pandora launched their new autumn collection and I have to say I’m liking it. This season is numbers and symbols, the season before was letters and symbols which means you can update on ones you may already have. I really love that big jewellery chains are getting into meanings and positive energy with charms and other items.
So as a fan of Pandora I was quite excited about these coming out. They come in sterling silver and some come in 14ct rose gold. The letters and numbers are self-explanatory, A – Z and 0 – 9. The symbols are a bit more personal.
