Pandora Bracelets

Pandora was founded in 1982 by Danish goldsmith Per Enevoldsen and his wife Winnie Enevoldsen. The pair began on a small scale niche by importing jewelry from Thailand and selling to consumers.As demand for their products grew, the Enevoldsens turned their attention to wholesaling. After a successful wholesale venture, in 1989 Enevoldsen hired in-house designers and established a manufacturing site in Thailand, where it is still located today. With low production cost and efficient supply chain, the Enevoldsens could provide cheap hand-finished jewelry for the mass market. Pandora's collection grew to include a wide assortment of rings, necklaces, earrings and watches. (in wikipédia)
