The PANDORA bracelet stretches over time as weight (e.g. charms) is put on the bracelet. The chain, commonly called a snake chain, is made out of many little rings which are twisted very tightly into the chain. When buying a new bracelet it should be fairly tight. There should be no more than a thumb-space between your wrist and the bracelet.
PANDORA ESSENCE COLLECTION
To preserve the flexibility of the snake-chain bracelet, the charms should be lightly dragged onto it and never forcefully pushed. The bracelet’s clasp should always be opened to put the bracelet on or take it off. Rolling the bracelet over the hand without opening it will put unnecessary strain on it, which may result in damage.
The multi-strand fabric bracelets are wax coated to protect the fibers and provide a stylish finish. The wax coating will disappear over time; this is a result of wear and tear and not considered a defect. When putting charms on the strand bracelet, it is important that you hold onto the sterling silver parts and not the fabric itself in order to prevent it from coming loose from the joint.
The sterling silver bracelets can be filled up with charms while the strand bracelets should be worn with a maximum of nine charms regardless of bracelet length.
The bracelets have been specially developed for the PANDORA ESSENCE COLLECTION and are not meant to be used with Moments charms, nor can the PANDORA ESSENCE COLLECTION charms be used on Moments bracelets.
Oxidation disappears with time. This is considered normal wear and tear and is not a defect.
Things which may cause the oxidation to fade include: perspiration, chlorine, perfumes, cleaning agents, and silver polish. We do not recommend using silver polishing liquid. Oxidized (dark) jewelry does not benefit from being dipped in silver polishing liquid, as it destroys the oxidation.
Cultured Freshwater Pearls
Try to prevent your cultured freshwater pearls from being exposed to water, makeup, creams, chemicals and cleaning agents. Cultured freshwater pearls cannot withstand silver polish. Do not use a silver-polishing cloth as it may dull your pearls. Instead we recommend mild soap mixed with lukewarm water. Use your fingers to gently clean your jewelry. Do not use a brush. Pat dry and lay flat until completely dry.
All enamel is Italian made without glass, which makes it more durable.
Leather is a natural product that will benefit from careful protection. Do not use in water or other liquids that may cause discoloration.
Leather can stretch and relax over time; stretching is not a defect in this product. As a natural feature of genuine leather, you may notice gentle shading and variations in color. You may also experience a change in the shade of the leather due to oils in the skin and the addition of charms to the bracelet or necklace. Use with a maximum of 7–9 charms. When adding charms to the new leather bracelets, please take care to hold the leather bracelet steady and twist the charm onto the bracelet. Be careful not to twist the leather part of the bracelet when adding charms, as the leather may be at risk for being damaged.
Color cords are made of synthetic fibers, which may become damaged or discolored if submerged in water.
