My friend bought me this charm a couple of months ago as a thank you gift when I did her a favour.
The charm is sterling silver and about one centimetre high. The charm is easy to thread onto the Pandora bracelet as it has a hole through the middle of it. The charm may confuse some people as it actually looks more like a rabbit when you look at it head on. This may be due to the fact that the cat has quite large ears and whiskers. It could easily be mistaken for a rabbit or a hare even. However, when you turn the cat around you will see a tail which instantly tells you that it isn't a rabbit!
The cat is quite chunky and sturdy. It is also very well made and durable. I could tell straight away that it'll last me forever. The cat is 100% sterling silver so it won't turn green in a month's time. You can also bathe in the charm without fear of it becoming discoloured. I don't purposely shower in my Pandora bracelets but I must admit that sometimes I do forget that I am wearing my bracelet and it may get the odd splash of water. You can wear the charm all the time or you can alternate it with different charms. Whatever you decide to do with the charm you'll be happy with it. It's beautiful, stunning and eyecatching. It's also something to be treasured and it'd make a great gift for someone special.
Well worth the £25 price tag.
A must have charm for cat lovers.
~~ Pandora Silver Cat Charm ~~
I am the proud owner of a Pandora My First Bracelet and am absolutely fascinated by the huge amount of charms, beads and spacers that the brand has to offer. My initial idea for the bracelet was to simply add half a dozen or so charms, but as with most things in my life I am easily tempted!
I adore cats and as my loving furry friend Maizie died almost two years ago I wanted to purchase a charm in her memory so that she would be close to me. I was delighted to discover that Pandora have created a stunning cat charm that is made from sterling silver and bears the authenticity markings of the brand. For anyone who is not familiar with Pandora I would advise that they bear the markings "ALE", together with "925" and on this charm they are located on the underside. I am always dubious about purchasing Pandora jewellery online due to the amount of counterfeit goods, so I always ensure I visit a genuine Pandora website.
Despite the sterling silver charm measuring only 11 mm in height and 8 mm in width it clearly displays the markings of a cat. The charm has tiny upright ears, which have been slightly carved in their inner sections and although they are only 1 mm in length they are very solid. The cat's face displays tiny eyes, which again have been carved into the silver together with a small mouth, nose and long whiskers. The cat's paws are absolutely adorable as Pandora have created tiny indentations to display claws, which to be honest look more like tiny and extremely cute toes.
Last, but not least is the cat's tail, which is positioned in an upright pose and has been created with a narrow section of silver; the length of which is firmly attached to the rear of his tiny body. It is rather difficult to believe that such a small item can display such perfect proportions as well as an absolutely adorable appearance. A hole has been created through the core of the cat's body to enable the charm to be safely threaded onto a Pandora bracelet.
This is an absolutely beautiful charm that shows no sign of wear and tear and it is a welcome addition to my bracelet. It is very special to me, particularly as I purchased it as a reminder of my beloved little friend. I am not yet in a position where I need to clean my bracelet or charms, but during a visit to a Pandora store I was advised that the staff will clean my bracelet and charms at no cost to myself.
I can highly recommend this cat charm as it is extremely well made as well as being completely adorable. What I love about Pandora charms and beads is that they are packaged in a beautiful white coloured hinged box and are threaded through a length of satin ribbon and sit on a white cushion. You can purchase this charm from all good Pandora stockists for £25.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
