These Pandora bracelet yokes (Size help ladies)

47
Found 22nd Nov 2011
So I am ordering a Pandora charm bracelet for the wife and my head is in a measurement spin, her wrist is a slim 6 Inches or 15.2cm, the girl lady Pandora herself says round that up to the nearest cm and add 2cm (17cm Bracelet), I am getting mixed messages from reading the web, some say go up 3cm, some even more, some have it hanging off the wrist, some don’t. Jewellery is not my specialist, just spending money seems to be my field, any recommendations?

I will be buying about 5 charms, the wife is very slim, her wrist is 6 Inch on the button, is 17cm the safe bet or 18? Interesting that I phoned a Pandora shop and the girl said if her wrist is 6 Inchs then you need the 16cm, mmmm? Given another few days and I could run that shop.

There seems to be a lot of common sense on the misc, so no better place for advise

Pandora is over-priced.

Good luck!
I bought one for the wife last year & they do give a fair bit once worn,my wifes is pretty loose now i would no for the 17cm
My wrist is 16cm and I wear my bracelets 19cm but mine aren't pandora. Mine are link/belcher style charm bracelts.
This might help have a look You might be safer with the 18cm mate

It also depends how many charms she is going to be getting. If its going to end up full you do need a larger bracelet. Mine is full and i wish I'd gone 1cm up.
It depends how many charms you will be putting on eventually. If you intend to fill it you will need the 18cm as the beads particularly take up a lot of depth. If you only want 5 and they are not deep and you think your wife will stay slim the smaller one would do, they do give a bit as well. I think the 16cm is a non runner.
Just to add..... i just phoned ta henn in wolverhampton where i had all the charms & braclet from, because last time i took the wife to get a charm she mentioned it had stretched & the bloke in there said it was no problem to shorten it, i just checked with then & he said it was no problem to shorten it, so i guess if you did get the longer one it could be shortened in the future it was to big anyway
you need the 18cm one yeah it will be loose empty but full of charms its not especially if she decides to have muranos on it.
my wrist is 16.6 and i wear a 20cm as a 19cm full is too tight.

Tell me about it. So are ipads, BMW's, Diamonds and everything else women want

Thank you all for the replies you nice people you 17.5 is the one I want, pitty they dont have 17.5 then, her wrist is 15.2cm, ahhhh I think 17cm on the hope it would stretch if too tight, then again 18cm if it is full and could be shortened. Right I am gonna go 17cm, 15.2 rounded up to nearest cm + 2cm as advised by Lady Pandora (I think)

Thanks again
Hold on 18cm it is then

Are muranos small?

Yes I was gonna order a braclet with a 4 murano beads and then two end things/spacers or whatever you call them

muranos are quite bulky so defo the 18cm but they add colour. you mean clips yeah you will need them to keep the other charms in there sections.
mememeaccessories have a discount on there pandora items or theres always ebay there are some genuine sellers on there.
Many thanks 18cm it is, will give John Greed a rattle, there is a 10% code (HOHOHO10) hopefully it works

Thanks again, another thing crossed off the list

they should do!!! especially if you are buying a bracelet.
Get her nice jewellery. Pandora bracelets are for 15 year olds and i doubt they'd be appropriate for a grown woman.

Unless I've horribly misread the situation.
unforgettablemoments.co.uk, I am seeing mixed reviews about being genuine Pandora or not, best prices of course, so then went to mememe and it wont let me pick size, I may just buy a bottle of Vodka instead

Diamond Tag Heuer watch last year thanks, this is from the kid's, they are picking their own beads for it, you know a we stocking filler that means something, a bit of thought rather than just blindly paying too much for a diamond watch (Me)

Not that I should explain to you, you buying the wife a new false face? X) false face and an orange in a old sock

The beads I have from them are definitely genuine and were supplied with Pandora boxes, bags etc and delivered within 2 days
or theres argento.co.uk no discount but you can get cashback through quidco.
failing that there is always ebay that i can tell you who the good sellers are.
before anyone says no i am not referring to myself.
If it was me mate, i would steer well clear of unforgettable moments read this thread before you do anything AVOID!

All the fakes come in pandora boxes, theres a lot of people flogging them on our estate at the moment, if it was me i would not buy from them again as only pandora stockists can sell pandora

I've never bought a bracelet from them, only beads, but most of mine are bought from Pandora shops and they are identical. I think its pretty easy to tell the fakes - the detail is slightly blurred and the markings are different. Mine are not fakes.

unforgettable moments does not sell fakes i can assure you they also have a jewellers in leek.
i have had charms from there myself.
and i am a pandora seller so i know.
Pandora have had lots of offers throughout this year and no doubt one will be upcoming before christmas, i would keep your eyes peeled locally, our town has two sellers and both have had different promotions throughout the year, they may even do another "spend £100 odd" and receive the free bracelet, plenty of time before xmas for them to have another

yeah you have horribly misread the situation.

Sorry, but they're awfully tacky and he'd be better off with something else.

The web site does not mention any shops in leek or elsewhere? seems a bit odd to me, where do you sell your pandora fleabay?(_;)

sorry ripon not leek but as good as heres there address Unforgettable Moments, 85 North Street, Ripon, North Yorkshire, H94 1DP

yeah i have sold on ebay but so do mememeaccessories!!!
Have to agree with Filth. Very chavvy, second only to Elizabeth Duke.
ive got two pandora bracelets both full and most of my beads came from john greed, great service and they are genuine, unforgettable moments dont have a good name so i would avoid
johngreedjewellery.com/en/…00/

this is nice
Sorry greyparot but unforgettable moments are not a authorized PANDORA retailer and never have been, i would not chance it, that's just my opinion, & theres no way i would purchase pandora jewellery off ebay as i could not even be 10% sure it was real (_;)
