To ask you to ignore my previous post, as it got scrambled, and to read this one instead?

DN appears to have found "a steady chap with good prospects, and good looks to boot" to quote my Great Aunt.

She also has a long standing best friend who seems possibly to be a little miffed about this boyfriend.

This week the boyfriend has given my DN a Pandora bracelet with a few charms on it. The best friend announced that she thinks Pandora bracelets are chavvy? DN seems hurt and upset.
Having no prior experience of Pandora bracelets, I would like the benefit of your advice. Are they chavvy or
was she just being unkind?

Well all I can tell you is that they're bloody expensive! They're quite common I suppose as in a lot of people have them and get beads that are amazingly expensive, given to them for birthdays, xmas etc! The people I know who have them, certainly are not chavvy, and I do think the bracelets are actually quite charming when they have loads of lovely beads on!

I would say the bf is maybe feeling a little peeved and made the comment a little spitefully! I bet if the bf had a new boyfriend and he gave her a pandora, they wouldn't be quite so distasteful to her!

Oh I think it's definitely a touch of the old Green-Eyed Monster!

Don't know, but the friend could be both ie right that they're chavvy AND unkind to say so.

Jealous.

If you messed up a post you can hit "report" and ask MNHQ to delete it.

YABU to write a title that gives no indication of what the thread is about.

Pandora bracelets are expensive, many people think that they are naff or tacky or chavvy.

Grumpy is right in that there is no either/or. She was being unkind, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are tasteful.
