The big question of buying one Pandora bracelet is worth it causes a lot of debates, not only between me and my family but also to some of my friends. I decided to post something about it because before I had one, I tried researching online for reviews and got a few helpful posts.
Pandora is a well-marketed brand that is founded at Denmark last 1982. Yes, the brand has been with us for so many years but it was just recently when they became famous because of their bracelets and charms.
The price difference in the Philippines to other countries are big though. Before I proceed with my thoughts regarding the matter, I will just share on where I got mine.
I got a Pandora bracelet as a birthday gift last year from my boyfriend, he also included one charm. He knew I always wanted one whenever I look at it at stores.
He bought the Silver Bracelet with Clear Cubic Zirconia. It costs 5780php in the Philippines but in other countries like Australia, you can get it for as low as 4000php only. Lot of difference, right? The charm attached of You and Me costs 1870php.
The charms are expensive so I do not buy additional charms easily. I saved up some of my pocket money for one charm to be bought at Pandora, Disneyland Hong Kong Branch.
There are items exclusively offered at Disney and some charms being sold that will never be offered in the Philippines.
Overview of Pandora
With my pocket money, I bought a Belle Charm. From all the Disney Princesses, Belle is my favorite. I wanted to buy all the other Disney Princesses but it is expensive and I only saved up for one charm.
The charm Belle has a Disney and the name Belle engraved on it. Also, there is a free polishing cloth from Pandora Disneyland when I purchased the charm.
Now, let me share my thoughts on it. Whether it is worth it or not. Remember though before you proceed reading, this is my own opinion. I will share with you the advantages, disadvantages and some tips.
If you are the kind of person who always wanted something sentimental, this bracelet is perfect. Why? Because you will be able to fit the charms depending on your life story or personality. That is what makes me want this bracelet, I can customize it to signify my own story.
Like for me, I wanted to have each of my charms to have meaning. Like the one my boyfriend gave me, since it is my first charm and he gave it to me, the charm You and Me fits our relationship. The Belle charm that I have signifies my experience at Disneyland and my favorite Disney character. I would have wanted another charm to remind me of my experience at Ocean Park Hong Kong but there is no Cable Car charm that would remind me of it.

Pandora Choose your bracelet Review
You build a bracelet starting with the bracelet itself. Many people choose the classic and popular sterling silver bracelet with the patented clasp. This clasp is very secure and easy to put on by yourself. Or begin with the silver bracelet with the gold clasp, or go for all gold. Leather bracelets are also available, in many different colors.
You’ll need to choose a bracelet length. Make sure you leave room for the charms as your collection grows! You should be able to put at least two or even three fingers between your bracelet and your wrist. Many people prefer more room.

Pandora beads don’t hang at the bottom of your wrist
Pandora bracelets have a unique feature that keeps the beads separated into three sections. There are two beads that don’t move; they clamp on and stay put, keeping the beads on either side of them. These special beads are called clips. There are many to choose from!
Most Pandora beads screw on and off the bracelet, making it a snap to change up your bracelet to suit your mood or your style! This feature allows for a bead collection to grow over time.

Pandora is it worth it?
For me, it is definitely worth it but…just because I got it as a gift. I think it makes the bracelet special because someone you love gave it to you. Maybe that is the reason that I never bought one for myself even though I knew I could somehow afford it, I always have that change of heart when I have the opportunity to buy one for myself. The charms are okay to buy for myself but the bracelet itself has more value when given as a gift.
Do you think I answered the question even a little? I hope that this post is quite helpful for you to decide whether to buy one or not. 🙂 Anyway, I am still not feeling well so last post for the day. Goodnight! 🙂
Yes, you can view all types of charms, bracelets, necklaces and more online. However, while this can be a valuable means for narrowing down your options and identifying what you are most interested in purchasing, it’s best that you make your final decision in person.
