History Of Pandora Jewelry

Pandora is an international jewelry company that sells customisable charm bracelets, rings earrings and necklaces in over 50 countries and employs over 2500 people. Founded in Denmark, the Pandora brand was first sold in Per and Winnie Enevoldsen’s shop in Copenhagen and in 1984, a production factory was opened in Thailand. Designers Lone Frandsen and Lisbeth Enø Larsen, inspired by Greek mythology (Pandora’s box) created the Pandora signature style and the customisable charm bracelet for worldwide distribution through stores in Germany, Australia, Denmark, Switzerland, Canada and the US.

The Pandora classic charm bracelet was first sold in 2000 and since then, over 800 charms in sterling silver, 14 carat gold, gemstones, cubic zirconias and murano glass have been developed for use on the basic bracelet. Spacers and clips help hold charms in place on the bracelet and assist in the distribution of weight.

Pandora bracelets are versatile, customisable and fashionable fine jewelry that are easily worn and changed to display a wearer’s personality. Women love to design their own jewelry easily and the mix-and-match Danish creation of Pandora bracelets encourages women to be creative individuals. Create your Pandora bracelet to be unique – customise it to display your emotions, memories and milestones for a precious keepsake.

Buy Pandora Beads Online

Inexpensive Pandora beads can be bought online at Ebay and Amazon. Genuine Pandora beads will have a Pandora hallmark on them – engraved on the bead or bracelet itself. The hallmark will have the letters “ALE” (short for Algot Enevoldsen – the father of Per Enevoldsen - founder of Pandora jewellery) with “925” on genuine silver jewellery and “585” on 14 carat gold jewellery. Some Pandora items will also have the crown symbol engraved on them (on jewellery created since 2008, which is when the crown was introduced).

You will find that most Ebay sellers are not authorised sellers of Pandora jewelry and this means the beads might not be genuine Pandora beads. However, the Ebay items might be suitable if you’re looking for inexpensive Pandora beads for your bracelet.

Genuine Pandora beads for bracelets have a superior quality that is obvious to all (especially when it comes to murano Pandora beads). Whether you require genuine Pandora beads or not depends on the frequency of use and the balancing of price vs aesthetics for the individual.

Where To Buy Pandora Bracelets

Expect to pay more for genuine Pandora bracelets – consider the use you will have for them. If you want to invest in a family heirloom, then genuine Pandora bracelets would be the ones to get, while a more affordable fashion statement for a few years could be any type of Pandora bracelet for sale online.
