What’s the difference between PANDORA ESSENCE and PANDORA Moments?

The PANDORA ESSENCE Collection was designed with the help and input of thousands of Women around the globe and what they most desired in a charm bracelet. The resounding feedback was they wanted a charm system that was fashion forward, contemporary and most importantly lightweight. The PANDORA ESSENCE collection is exactly that; featuring new slender bracelet and necklace designs and petite charms that stay put thanks to their innovative design. Due to the difference in size, the Pandora Essence collection and the PANDORA Moments collection are not compatible but they look fantastic when worn side by side.

Can I mix and match PANDORA ESSENCE and PANDORA Moments?

Due to the size difference between the two concepts, they are not compatible to be combined. Although, they do look great when bracelets are stacked side by side!

How to identify an authentic PANDORA product

Like all successful brands, PANDORA jewellery items are much copied. It may be hard to decipher what is a genuine PANDORA item and what is a fake PANDORA item. Non-genuine PANDORA items are designed to impress at the point of sale but quickly degrade in quality and break soon after purchase, sadly they are often designed to do so. Adding fake PANDORA charms to a genuine charm bracelet or necklace will also void the genuine items warranty or guarantee, this is because more often than not, the fake charms will get stuck and cannot be removed without damaging the genuine bracelet or necklace. Here are our top tips to identify authentic PANDORA items and avoid the pitfalls of fakes

Pandora Essence Introduction

  1. On the High Street, genuine PANDORA stockists will all have PANDORA window displays, furniture and packaging. If you are overseas this will also be the case. Genuine PANDORA is not sold in markets, from stalls or anywhere else than reputable jewellery shops.
  2. Online, things can get a bit tricker. In the U.K there are only a handful of genuine, authorised PANDORA retailers licensed to sell on the internet. Our name and a list of these retailers can be found on the PANDORA’s official website (pandora.net).
  3. When shopping online, look for a ‘certified PANDORA retailer’ logo, like the one our website and detailed above.
  4. Any website other than PANDORA (pandora.net), that has PANDORA in their domain name in the U.K is fake. PANDORA for protection purposes do not allow online retailers to use ‘PANDORA’ in their domains.
  5. Genuine PANDORA is not traded on Amazon and only a very small amount on Ebay is genuine.
  6. Look for the PANDORA ‘ALE’ makers mark, which is stamped on all PANDORA jewellery with the exception of some smaller pieces.
  7. All PANDORA jewellery items will be hallmarked with the purity of the metal; S925 for silver, G585 for 14ct gold and G750 for 18ct gold.
  8. The hallmarks on PANDORA Jewellery items pre 2011 only display numbers and are not pre-fixed with a letter e.g 925, 585, 750.
