“ Brand: Pandora / Type: Charm „
I'm a huge fan of Pandora jewellery and am the proud owner of one of their sterling silver bracelets, which contains a beautiful selection of charms and spacers. I like the fact that each bracelet is unique and individual to the owner and my bracelet contains a combination of plain silver charms together with ten colourful and very eye-catching Murano charms with this review discussing one of my favourites, namely Black Flowers.
There are two sizes of Murano charms with all of mine being the smaller of the two with its measurements of approximately 12 mm in diameter and I feel the size blends in well with the other charms on my bracelet without being obtrusive. The centre of the circular charm, which offers a shape similar to that of a Polo mint, is manufactured from a section of sterling silver and as with the majority of Pandora jewellery, the authenticity marking of 925 ALE is etched onto the one side. The opposite side of the charm displays the familiar logo of Pandora and as there are so many fakes floating around, particularly on ebay, my charms are always purchased from a reputable Pandora dealer.
Firmly attached to the silver is the stunning Murano glass and whilst this flower charm is available in a variety of colours, I particularly like the black as it blends beautifully with the other shiny silver charms. The glass is smooth to the touch and the flowers have been created below the surface with their perfectly formed white petals and bright yellow centres. I own a couple of Murano charms where the design has been added onto the surface of the glass and as a result, the various slightly pointed edges tend to catch on my clothes. The design is absolutely stunning and despite being small, the charm is a welcome addition to my bracelet and perfectly compliments my other choices. The centre of the charm contains threads and was easily screwed onto my bracelet.
I am very careful where I wear my bracelet and do place it on my wrist for work, as I am concerned that when I'm typing the charms will damage when the bracelet taps against my desk. Consequently, all of my charms offer a brand new appearance with no signs of wear or damage. To ensure my bracelet and charms are kept in a good as new condition I regularly clean my bracelet with the lint free cloth that was provided to me free of charge by my local Pandora high street store.
This beautiful Murano glass charm is available from all good Pandora stockists where it retails for £30. It comes with my full recommendation together with five stars.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
