A CHARMED LIFE. Create a story using charms with Pandora’s varied selection.

Pandora’s charms are like Pringles—once you pop, you can’t stop. We love how the brand makes it easy for you to create a wearable story using its different charms.


This Christmas, if you’re looking to give someone a very personalized and memorable present, building a Pandora bracelet is a great way to do it; you can even turn it into a holiday tradition, where you can slowly build the bracelet together.


If you’re new to the brand, note that Pandora’s bracelet system is different from other companies that sell charms. Unlike the traditional charm-bracelet style where the charms are suspended from rings or clasps attached to a bracelet, Pandora’s single-strand bracelet has three corkscrew posts spaced evenly across the bracelet.


The charms have threads etched on the inside that lets you screw the charm onto the bracelet, allowing you to have a charm bracelet minus the dangly bits that can snag or make a perpetual jangling sound. Pandora also has dangling charms available, but these are used as accent pieces.


Charm prices range from P1,500 up, depending on materials used and the intricacy of the charm. Charms are arranged according to interests, hobbies or collections. Colored glass beads are also available to add brightness and to break the monotony or heavy look an all-silver bracelet can give.


There are also decorative clips that help “lock” the screw post part so your charms don’t move around, as well as safety chains that help you fasten your bracelet easily to your wrist when it’s already full.


‘Family’ bracelet


Pandora’s expertly trained staff is also on hand to help you create a one-of-a-kind wearable story for your loved one. For your mom, for example, you can create a “family” bracelet: a penguin with baby penguin enameled charm or a “Mom” charm together with colored glass or crystal beads in your family’s different birthstones.


You can even get your siblings to chip in on one bracelet for your mom, with one charm representing each child.


For your friend whose pets are her children (it’s a real thing), you can assemble a bracelet filled with charms from Pandora’s pet collection: a dog-theme bracelet for the doggie mamas or a cat-themed one for the feline lovers.


If you love to travel, there are different city/travel-related charms that can help you create a “passport” that you can wear showing the places you’ve been to or dream of visiting.


The different combinations are endless and—you may end up giving yourself your own wearable story bracelet. One thing’s for sure, even if you spot two women wearing Pandora, you can be sure that no two bracelets will be alike, and each will have its own wonderful story to tell.

Pandora boutiques are located at Century City Mall, Glorietta, Shangri-la Plaza Mall, Newport Mall at Resorts World Manila.
