I’ve been so eager to share this post with you all today!!
If you were like me [or any girl in 2006/2007], you had a Pandora charm bracelet loaded with sentimental beads. They were so much fun to collect at the time, but eventually the novelty wore off & Pandora bracelets became a memory for most. Well you guys, those days are over… because Pandora is making a comeback!
In Connecticut, Pandora only has four locations [Danbury, Farmington, Stamford, and Trumbull] – I have actually been to 3 of them & they are all such gorgeous stores! A couple of weeks ago, I popped into the location at the Danbury Fair Mall to meet with the manager, Colleen!
Colleen could not have been any more friendly, kind, or generous with her time! She brought me around the store, pulled out some of the new collections, and showed me the most popular pieces. I was in my glory as I got to try on everything that caught my eye!
There were so many beautiful items, but I was falling in LOVE with all of those rings…particularly the rose gold stackables! #hearteyesfordays
Colleen really wanted to share the ESSENCE COLLECTION with me. The more I learned about it, the more excited I was to share it with you! This collection features slender silver and strand bracelets with an accompanying assortment of delicate hand-finished sterling silver charms, each representing a personal value. The charms slide effortlessly onto the ESSENCE COLLECTION bracelets, and are secured in place thanks to an innovative patent pending design based on a flexible silicone grip built inside the sterling silver core of each charm.
These bracelets are all about women…our values as women, the things that are important to us, the things that define us, and the things that make us who we are. The ESSENCE COLLECTION has created a charm for everyone; compassion, loyalty, dignity, happiness, friendship, appreciation, caring, love, and dozens more…they’ve got it all covered! I couldn’t believe how well these beautiful beads captured those important sentiments.
Coming from a girl who has spent a lot of time learning to love herself, finding her happiness, and accepting herself for who she is, this collection is something that I’m so proud to share!
Now aside from the beautiful meaning behind the line, let’s chat about the jewelry itself!
I love that these charms are all compatible with one another… mixing metals is one of my favorite things to do! These beauties can certainly be dressed up or down & worn nearly anywhere. From the women with the most basic of styles to the ladies who bring their A-game everyday, there’s something for each of you.
I love that you could wear an ESSENCE bracelet with a dress to work, or on the weekend with jeans & a tee. They really do cater to women of all lifestyles!
If you have a birthday, anniversary, or any other celebration coming up and you’re stumped…an ESSENCE bracelet would make the perfect gift. Browse their huge selection of charms & select one that best suits your Mom, friend, wife, or girlfriend & start a bracelet for her! 🙂
Connecticut friends! Our Pandora stores will be having an ESSENCE promotion starting today & running until the end of the month! A bangle & choice of select ESSENCE charm will be only $75 (suggested retail value of $95). Make your way into one of our stores to scope it out & take advantage! 🙂
I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with Pandora & I know that I wouldn’t have the chance to do these things without all of you! SO, we’ve planned a really amazing giveaway! 🙂
We will be giving one lucky winner the chance to begin building their own ESSENCE bracelet! We handpicked three different bracelets/bangles & three charms for you to choose from so you can get your own Pandora arm candy started!
The charms we selected [from left to right] are:
The FREEDOM charm, because we all have the power to do the things we want to do, to the chase the dreams we want to chase, and the ability create the life that we want!
The LOVE charm, because for me, there is nothing more important in this world.
The POSITIVITY charm, because it is the single most valuable tool anyone could have in their belt. We are in complete control of our thoughts & actions. When we take the positive approach, we welcome all of the good things into our lives! 🙂

Thank you so much! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with them! I wish I still had my old Pandora bracelet, they were so fun back in the day. I really love their new look though, super sleek! And I’m with you, it’s all about the loveeee! Thanks for entering girlie! XO 🙂
How fun!! I love Pandora – I have a gold & silver bracelet that I wear all the time 🙂 As I love all the bracelets & charms – if I had to pick it would be the bangle bracelet & the positivity charm – in a word of so much negativity a little positive energy is good!

Love this post! All of the pieces are so beautiful!! I actually really am drawn to that small bead bracelet, and I would definitely choose the positivity charm–positivity is so important in life, but so easily forgotten.

What an amazing giveaway and experience! That sounds like SO much fun getting to go in and try everything on! My dad went to London years ago and brought my sister and I back our first pandora bracelet and some charms. Needless to say I was OBSESSED!! These new ones are gorgeous and I LOVE the sweet meanings behind them. I love the braclet to the farthest right in the picture above and would pick the LOVE charm because love is what drives me everyday. There would be nothing sweeter then a little reminder of that on my wrist! Amazing post girl!

I had a Pandora bracelet too. I still have it, but I don’t wear it. That rose gold stack is BEAUTIFUL! All of their stackable rings are. I love mixing metals too and those bracelets are so pretty, especially stacked. I love the freedom charm and the bangle bracelet.
Omg, aren’t those rose golds amazing?! I wish I could have fit them all on my fingers!! haha I like the freedom/bangle combo, that’s a good one!! 🙂 XOXO
I don’t have Pandora yet, but I would love to start collecting one. I would like the bracelet on the right and Love charm.

Aren’t the rings the best?! And thank you so much! Dress is an oldie but a goodie…a Marshalls find!! 😉 XOXO
Those rings are absolutely beautiful!! And the bracelets are absolutely lovely. (I’m definitely a fan of jewelry that I can use to dress up or down an outfit, whether I’m wearing a dress… or Tshirt and jeans).
And, as always, you are GORGEOUS!!!!
Thank you so much!! I am obsessed with those rings too! 😍😍 And there’s nothing like accessories that can be worn any time/any where! Xoxo
Great contest you are hosting for the ladies! 🙂 So in love with that rose gold ring you showcased. If only they could make them in kiddo sizes, lol.
