Everything You Need to Know About Pandora Beads

Everything You Need to Know About Pandora BeadsThe popularity of Pandora jewelry is hard to deny. Fans of the brand find the jewelry for purchase in more than 70 countries across six continents. Pandora became available in the U.S. in 2003, where the company's mission of providing quality jewelry for the individuality of the wearer made it a household name. Pandora has a large selection of and charms in a stunning variety of styles to suit all personalities. Jewelry lovers express their distinctive natures with Pandora by finding available charms or beads, putting Pandora pieces together, and spotting fake pieces.

How Pandora Beads Work

While many people refer to Pandora charms as beads, the company officially refers to them as charms, even those that are glass and resemble traditional glass beads. Almost all Pandora charms or beads work in the same manner, one that is different from most others. Instead of using pieces with smooth insides that slip on bracelets (or necklaces), Pandora uses threads on most of their charms. To place the charm on the bracelet, twist it past the threads on the end of the bracelet, after which the charm is free to slide. There is a small range of unthreaded Pandora charms that slip over the ends of bracelets. Some prefer charms not to slide freely. Pandora also offers stopper charms and thread-divided bracelets.

Pandora Bead Materials

Pandora offers beads that feature a variety of materials, including sterling silver and gold. Some charms contain only one material, mainly the sterling silver charms, while others are a mix of materials, such as gold and cubic zirconium. The company uses high-quality components, so no matter which materials a charm contains, take care to treat pieces gently and clean them properly.

Pandora Bead Collections

Part of the joy of Pandora is the range of charms, including pieces for all lifestyles. Choose charms that showcase a love of travel, shopping, animals, special occasions, and more. Pandora offers collections throughout each year, though some are only available for a limited time. Some collections are themed, such as the 2014 NFL Team Charms Collection, while others focus more on design principles.
Once Pandora discontinues a collection of charms, buyers cannot obtain the pieces from a retailer. Some sellers offer retired Pandora charms, more expensive than new charms due to rarity.
