I had my first Pandora bracelet for my 21st birthday, just over three years ago now. I went for the standard silver bracelet and I was also bought a few charms to go with it too (the tortoise, the owl and the dangly '21' charm) and I bought the hedgehog for myself with birthday money. Since then I've been collecting the various charms for birthdays and Christmases and other special occasions. The thing I like most about Pandora bracelets is that you can switch up the charms whenever you want and you can also put them onto other bracelets or even necklaces.
The three latest additions to my Pandora collection are the leather double wrap bracelet which I had for Christmas, the dangly Eiffel Tower charm which I bought from Galleries LaFayette in Paris (well, I just had to, didn't I?) and the Turquoise Birth Stone Charm * which I was gifted by Joshua James jewellery for a review. Although I wasn't born in December, I chose this charm because I really love the colour and felt like my bracelet could do with a bit more colour as it's mostly silver at the moment.
There's loads more charms that I want, one day I hope to own a couple of the gold ones as well some of the murano glass charms too.
