PANDORA Charm Meanings

PANDORA charms are more than fashionable baubles on a bracelet. Each charm makes a statement with a special meaning expressed through the design. Some are sentimental or deeply meaningful, while others are lighthearted and playful, representing things like a love of coffee. You’ll find charms to commemorate all of your special moments, from birthdays to graduations. PANDORA CHARM MEANINGS Understanding PANDORA charm meanings helps you choose just the right piece as a meaningful gift or as a way to commemorate special moments, from the birth of a baby to a dream vacation. What do your PANDORA charms say about you?

What Makes up a PANDORA Bracelet

parts to a PANDORA bracelet Before diving into the meanings of the charms, it’s important to know the parts of a PANDORA bracelet. There are four main parts:
  • Bracelet: The bracelet itself creates the foundation for the PANDORA charms. There are a few different styles to choose from, but the bracelets are typically divided into three sections with the main clasp plus two other threads for even charm distribution.
  • Clips: The clips are special pieces that go over the two threads that divide the bracelet into sections. They keep the charms from sliding into the next section so the bracelet stays balanced. They help prevent breaking or stretching due to uneven distribution of charms. These are decorative hinged pieces that look similar to charms. They snap into place.
  • Charms: The charms are the pieces that let you show off your style and special moments. Many PANDORA charms thread onto the bracelet so they won’t slide around, but others are free to slide. Pave and openworks charms are examples of styles that usually don’t thread on to the bracelet.
  • Spacers: Spacers are slightly smaller than charms. You’ll find that when your bracelet is almost full, you will likely have small spaces not quite big enough for a charm. Spacers are decorative like the charms and fit into those small spaces to make the bracelet look full and balanced.
Strength and Other Charms From the Essence Collection The Strength charm from the PANDORA Essence collection offers an uplifting and inspiring reminder for the special recipient. The Strength charm in particular features a bold silver and black faceted spinel with the world STRENGTH engraved on it. This charm reminds the recipient that she is stronger that she realizes. When she doesn’t feel strong, the charm reminds her that she is. This PANDORA charm makes a great gift for a woman who is going through a difficult time or needs a reminder of her inner strength. All of the charms in the Essence Collection represent personal values. If Strength doesn’t send the message you want, consider some of the other values, such as Passion, Faith, Wisdom, Peace, Patience, Dedication or Confidence. Each charm represents its value in both its design and color. Charms in this collection only work on Essence Collection bracelets, which are smaller and thinner than the Moments bracelets. Motherly Love and Other Charms for Mom PANDORA charms are a popular gift option for mothers, and the line comes with several suitable options for both young and experienced moms. A filigree design creating a delicate heart in the Motherly Love charm is the perfect way to show love for your mom. Several small hearts make up the filigree pattern, with the word Mom in the middle. This charm is designed to show your mom how much you love her. It makes the perfect gift for your mom’s birthday or for Mother’s Day. PANDORA charm for mother's day From Us is a charm made specifically for Mother’s Day. It features two children side-by-side holding a heart with the words Happy Mother’s Day engraved on it. This charm represents the care and appreciation kids have for their mothers. Give this charm to your own mom or to any mom you want to remember on Mother’s Day. Precious Girl and Precious Boy are two charms that work well as gifts for moms. Each of these charms is shaped like a child, either a girl or boy respectively. They represent the love and caring between a mother and child. A mother will appreciate having one of these charms to represent each of her kids. Choose a charm to represent the gender of each of her children, or buy the corresponding gender charm as a gift for the birth of a new child. A Mother’s Pride spacer is an optional addition for a Mother’s Day present. The spacers are smaller than the charms and fill in spaces along a PANDORA bracelet that aren’t quite big enough for another charm. Mother’s Pride spells out MOM continuously around the loop. Cubic zirconia hearts create the Os in the word for a little touch of sparkle. The continuous loop of the word MOM shows your love for her never ends. PANDORA Globe Charm The Globe charm is perfect for the globetrotter on your shopping list.

Give this charm to your favorite world traveler for her birthday or other special occasions that call for a gift. PANDORA globe charm meaning If the recipient holds one particular place close to her heart, PANDORA offers several landmark charms with images and words based on specific locations. Each one symbolizes the essence of the location and makes an ideal gift to remember a special trip. Remember a vacation to Hawaii with a charm featuring palm trees and islands, or relive all of your favorite musical memories of a trip to Nashville with music notes decorating the charm. Create a charm scrapbook of all of your favorite vacations with a series of the landmark charms so she can always look back on vacation memories. Minnie & Mickey Forever and Other Charms From the Disney Line Any Disney fan can appreciate the loving bond between Mickey and Minnie.

PANDORA offers assorted Disney character charms including many of the princesses, Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse and even Pooh and Eeyore. Choose a charm based on the recipient’s favorite character, or choose a Disney charm that represents the qualities you see in the recipient or want the recipient to remember about herself. Daughter’s Love No matter how old your daughter is, you always want her to remember just how much she means to you. The Daughter’s Love charm from PANDORA does just that.

Whatever the reason, she will remember your loving comfort long after she receives the charm.

This round charm features a paw print with cubic zirconia inside in an inlayed pave style.

PANDORA charms for those who love music Graduate Owl The Graduate Owl charm comes in the shape of a wise owl with intricate detailing that makes it special.

Birthstone Signature Heart PANDORA offers a Signature Heart charm for each month. Each charm is a heart shape made up of open scrollwork with the month’s birthstone in the center. The charm represents the birth month, but the stone also says something special.
