While the designs are still around the same time Pandora Beads introduce more options

These bracelets came out around the same time that Pandora Beads debuted last year, so of course it’s a natural comparison. Both brands have their own distinctive features; I have been nothing but impressed with Pandora CZ Beads but its concept does not allow compatibility between brands, whereas Pandora Beads link bracelets has the potential to be used with other charms. The materials are vastly different – gold, silver, bronze, and rubber versus coated stainless steel, and the use of links are unique as well.
Combining a couple Pandora Beads decorative links with the elegant Story chain is a possible option (note: only some X by Trollbeads links can fit with the Story link). The stainless steel chain is actually relatively light in weight compared to the silver, but stacks beautifully with their leather bracelets.
The Pandora Beads link bracelets are reminiscent of the Tiffany’s open links silver bracelet, but way more functional and affordable. Each link is low price if you want to mix and match or can be purchased as a Pandora Christmas Charms uk bracelet for low price. I’m happy to see this brand give their own spin to the traditional charm bracelet which turned out classically simple. I’ve been wearing my link bracelet with a leather and the effect is casual and glamorous! Are you intrigued by this product?
Alex and Ani has really ramped up their production of their bangles this year as they premiere new designs today for the Vintage 66 Collection called Pandora Beads! Vintage 66 is a collection inspired by the eccentric times of the 1960′s in the us and the current designs are wrap style bracelets which have a distinctive vintage feel, as the name implies. The additions to this theme is focused on the healing properties of gemstones and the power of positive energy, perhaps drawing from the new age Pandora Dangle Charms uk of that era.
While the designs are still boho chic, I do feel that this release is a departure from the original aesthetic of the collection. These bangles are vibrant and introduce more options for those wanting to add color to their Alex and Ani stack.
I adore this collection and it might finally get me to try out their beaded bangles! It’s a toss up between Serentiy Journey, Prosperity Journey, or Pandora Beads for my favorite bracelet from this set, and of course the Pandora Beads wrap has great appeal for me too. Most of these bangles are available in gold or silver finish, and are made from recycled materials. As a side note, recently the company has changed the names of the plating from “Russian Gold” and “Russian Silver” to “Rafaelian Gold Finish” and “Rafaelian Silver Finish”.
