I really want one. They are so pretty. Lots of different beads and things that can be added.
But are they a bit common?

I am torn.

But who cares, really? If you love it and.enjoy it, can afford it, etc, wear it.

I love mine. I don’t wear it but I like that each bead has a story to tell in your life. If you do get one though don’t get the leather strap. Mine has started to go weird

They probably are a bit common now (and MN will definitely tell you so) but I love mine because it was bought by DP and every charm was a gift and means something to me/us

I sold the one exH got me on eBay

I think they are very common! And so overpriced!!!!! But each to their own! Get one if you like them smile

Mine is full of meaning, dc get me one (my choice) for Xmas and birthday. Always get a Xmas themed one from eldest ds and it means loads.

JennyOnAPlate Sat 28-Oct-17 20:31:52

I love mine because my dc chose all the charms that are on it, and they have a reason for each one.

I like my Sabo bracelet, also considered common on here but all my charms are personal to me

So if I were to be a terrible snob and too sneery to get a pandora (even though I really quite like some of the bits) what else is even more pretty and maybe a bit more unusual? Yet can be still added to?

They look cheap. Sorry.

CarbyDeadUn Sat 28-Oct-17 20:37:01

Trollbeads? Also pretty. I think I want a solid bangle.

I had a leather one and wore it every day for four years without taking it off, with no beads on. Eventually the leather wore away and was on the verge of snapping when I stopped wearing it.

DP bought me a lovely rope bracelet with words on a rose gold plate to our favourite line from our favourite song inscribed and that took it's place, it's perfect.

Pandora is perfectly acceptable and appeals to people of every age because it can signify what they want it to. I'd get it and go with a silver bracelet.

Sorry, can't stand them and think the prices are obscene.

I do have an old fashioned charm bracelet in my cupboard, but don't wear it these days.

Otherwise, are Links of London bracelets still a "thing"?

LaurieMarlow Sat 28-Oct-17 20:44:07

If you like them, who gives a fuck what anyone else thinks?

Notevilstepmother Sat 28-Oct-17 20:47:34

I think pandora are over priced. I have a traditional one but it does mean the older type charms need attaching by a jeweller.

Nettletheelf Sat 28-Oct-17 20:49:33

I’d sooner spend the money on a bracelet made out of a proper precious metal, not the old crap Pandora, Thomas Sabo, Nomination etc. bracelets are made from!

SierraFerrara Sat 28-Oct-17 20:49:46

If you like them go for it.
Personally I have never liked them but especially now everyone has them but why does that matter?

Queenofthedrivensnow Sat 28-Oct-17 20:51:11

I love them. I really want one

FrancisCrawford Sat 28-Oct-17 20:53:40

Jewellery is very personal

If you like it, go for it and enjoy wearing it.

RobinHumphries Sat 28-Oct-17 20:54:17

Clogau do charm bracelets

KitKat1985 Sat 28-Oct-17 20:54:19

I don't like them and I think they're a bit tacky, sorry (just my opinion). I also don't get why people pay £50 or more for beads that aren't even made out of precious metals. But at the end of the day if you like them then what I, (or anyone else), thinks of your choice of jewellery doesn't matter.

Thesmallthings Sat 28-Oct-17 20:55:21

They are very over priced for the actual quality imo

But they do do some lovely bits. My engagement ring is from there. And I habe the leather bracelet with the charm that matches my ring.

I spend far to much time looking at them but can never bring my self to pay for one. I check Facebook selling sites for second hand ones.

Icanseethepigeon Sat 28-Oct-17 20:55:26

Trollbeads are far nicer, classier, less "blingy" but still individual and pretty. I LOVE my trollbead bracelet that I change to match my outfit and it just looks nicer than Pandora (I think).

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Sat 28-Oct-17 20:56:48

I like troll beads i have 2.5 bracelets

But i have a pandora Christmas one because I dont like the odd 'christmassy' troll bead

BadTasteFlump Sat 28-Oct-17 20:56:53

I have one and I love it. According to MN law they are tacky and common but I choose not to live my life according to MN <rebel>
