“ Brand: Pandora / Type: Charm „
One of the presents my sister bought me at Christmas was a Pandora lobster clasp bracelet. As she had bought the bracelet alongside other presents as well and she is only a student working part time she was unable to buy a charm to go on it and so she asked my Mum to buy one as a present for me. My mum chose the Aries charm and this is my review of that.
The charm is of course sterling silver given that it is an authentic Pandora charm. It is marked with 925 and ALE on the sides of the charm so that you are aware of this but it is done in a way which is not obtrusive and which would detract from the charm. The Aries charm is almost pillow shaped but very simple in its design and simply features the Aries ram star sign image engraved in to it on both sides so no matter which way the charm turns you can still see the sign.
Now obviously my Mum chose this for me because I am an Aries because otherwise it would have been a very random choice! I am not particularly in to astrology and so I think it would be a better choice for someone who is interested in that sort of thing however I do like the charm because it is personal and was chosen for me by someone that knows me. The charm is very simple looking and considering I do like the more detailed charms I think it fits in nicely on my bracelet with the others I have and if anything just breaks up the detail a little.
The charm fits nicely on to the bracelet as it is an authentic product and so it twists over the raised areas on the bracelet so it can move freely in one of the sections. At the moment I only have four charms on my bracelet and so I like to keep them all in the middle section although they do sometimes twist around and move to either end as I do not have any clips on my bracelet which can be annoying at times but I am learning to live with it! The charm isn't showing any scratches or damage and I do wear the bracelet most days, and on my right hand as well which I write with too so it does bang around a bit so I would say it is a hard wearing charm.
You can buy this product from beadazzle online and I would think from Pandora stores too but having looked online I can now advise that this particular one has been discontinued and so there are a limited amount of them available. I have bought charms and bracelets from beadazzle online regularly now and they give such a wonderful service that I would fully recommend having a look on there where this charm is selling for £20.00 currently and so it is one of the lower priced charms on the market.
Thank you for reading my review!
