Pandora Presents

I thought I'd share with you the latest addition to my growing Pandora collection.  I realise I may have done this backwards as being what Pandora are most famous for, the braclets tend to be what people buy first.  I started out with the rings, then receieved a beautiful necklace for Christmas, and have only just got round to being the owner of a Pandora bracelet.  I do already own a Chamilia one, but it's one of the black leather styles, and while I do still love it, I wanted a similar bracelet in silver for when I wanted something a bit more classic, or to wear alongside the leather one for a smart/casual look. With my boyfriend currently working away meaning he'd likely be away for both our birthdays, we decided to celebrate them early and do presents before he left.  While he opted for some new trainers (which happen to be the most expensive footwear I've ever bought!) I decided to finally get a Pandora bracelet.  

We spent ages looking on the website together to choose my first charm, and I was so dissapointed when the one I'd wanted originally wasn't in stock. My dissappointment as shortlived though as Alix, the super helpful sales assistant, brought out a selection of charms she thought I'd like based on my brief of  "heart shaped, sparkely and a bit different".  One of the charms she came back with was this black pavé charm, which I'd seen on the website but had over looked.  It looks so different up close.  It really does catch the light, and has just the right amout of sparkle.  I love the contrast of the black against the silver bracelet; I was toying with the idea of getting one of the oxidised bracelet but had decided agaist it, however with this charm I still have the dark/light contrast but just the opposite way round, which I think I prefer.  I then added some simple clips, to give a bit of structure to the bracelet, without detracting too much from the charm.

I'm not sure what to add to the bracelet yet; I don't want to add too much to it as I'm not keen on a bracelet filled with charms, but I definitely do want to build it up a little bit.  I really like the pavé charms, and there's a few that I want to have a look at in store.  Other than that, I'm not too sure!

What are your favourite Pandora charms?
