pandora charms Today I thought I’d take a look at the process that the little charms on our wrists go through to get to our bracelets! I haven’t done a post like this in a while, what with all the Spring and Summer news trickling in, but Pandora just released a pretty fun new video covering the creation of the Vintage Lace charm – from conception in Copenhagen to production in Thailand. This made me realise that I hadn’t actually done a blog post on how Pandora charms are made – so that’s what I’m doing today. I thought it would be fun to stop and appreciate how much work has gone into the charms we already own! I’ve included the new video in this post, alongside some more information about how the charms are made. pandora charms italia Each charm is hand-finished and reportedly passes through at least 20 hands before it hits the shelves. This involves setting all the gemstones in a charm, soldering pieces together, plus oxidising and polishing the charms – all by hand! While Pandora is a Danish company, the charms and other jewellery pieces are manufactured in Gemopolis, Thailand, where Pandora employ over 5,900 people! Gemopolis is an industrial estate that specialises in high-end products, such as high fashion, jewellery and electronics. I find this fascinating. Pandora is, admittedly, very popular the world over and the charms are produced in significant quantities. pandora saldi This means that it’s often tempting (or so I find) to think that the charms are entirely made via a conveyor-belt process, and so the craftsmanship behind each charm becomes a little lost. It’s incredible to think that every single Pandora piece, no matter how many of them there are, have gone through that painstaking process. This process means that there can be a lot of variation in the finish of the charms, especially in the muranos, which are completely hand-made and not just hand-finished; they can differ in size, pattern and even colour. Personally, I’ve always liked this, as it makes a charm feel a bit more yours and suggests the high level of individual craftsmanship that goes into each piece. pandora saldi online However, I do like to go and pick mine out in person, just to make sure that I’m happy with the one I’ve chosen! Pandora just released a set of pretty cool new videos detailing how they create their charms. This first one represents the creation of a Vintage Lace charm. It starts with the design process in Copenhagen, and then takes us through the process of actually creating and finishing the charm! While the Pandora factory in Thailand is not open to general visitors, you can read more about the creation of Pandora jewellery in the following two articles. They were written by fashion writers invited specially to see the Pandora factory in Gemopolis.
