According to legend, Pandora was a beautiful woman whose curiosity got the better of her; she opened a box that unleashed sorrow upon a previously Utopian world … however, according to modern jewelry legend, Pandora has unleashed a myriad of beautiful and charming things upon the world. Surely this makes up for her earlier indiscretion! The Pandora range recently expanded, and if you know a woman who is charming, kind, elegant and old-worldly, then you should find a perfect birthday gift for her among the Pandora range this August! Stay with us as we check out some highlights for August birthdays.
Pandora’s most well-known jewelry item is the charm bracelet and necklace, with an enormous range of charms from the cute, to the luxurious, to the sophisticated, but with a definite energy and enthusiasm. You can see some of the cute, almost cuddly animal beads at the beginning of the article! There is one of the highlights for August birthdays pictured just above – the starsign Leo takes up much of August (from the 1st to the 22nd), and the lion is the mascot for Leos. They are just as feisty, energetic and dramatic as a lion!
If you are buying for a fiery, feisty Leo this August, you’ll find other great choices for Pandora beads in the Murano glass section. These Murano glass beads are not only great quality, but are colorful and stylishly patterned. There are patternings for women from the classical, to the cute, to the charismatic – and colorings also! We chose these as our top pick for the dramatic and colorful Leos.
Virgo takes up the rest of the month of August, from the 23rd to the 31st. The hallmark of a Virgo is purity, innocence and precision. There are also gorgeous Murano glass beads to suit Virgos, like this white mystic circles bead. It is set on 14ct gold rather than the usual sterling silver, so if silver is not suitable for your birthday-person’s skin, or if they just appreciate the luxury and gorgeous coloring of gold, then this is a lovely choice.There are also other variants of white in beads, like the white with cafe polka dots pictured below. This has been an immensely popular bead, so order early to get it in time for a special birthday!
Virgos are efficient, and above all fastidious – they will want to have things placed exactly and perfectly within their Pandora bracelet! Spacers will be a must, and luckily these gorgeous plainer beads are very reasonably priced. Our choice for Virgos is the row of rosebuds spacer pictured above – made with minute detail and an exacting hand, your Virgo friend will appreciate the intricacies of making these beads.
Peridot is the birthstone for the month of August, and in Pandora’s wider range of jewelry, there is a great selection of peridot jewelry. These super-stylish Pandora earrings feature a peridot inside the flower, set on a meandering shaped earring. There is also a genuine diamond set above the peridot flower – beautiful! They are part of a matching set of all different sorts of jewelry – necklaces, stud earrings, and of course beads for the charm bracelets – the matching one of these is pictured below.
This peridot flower ring is also part of the matching set – there are actually two ring variants, one in silver, which also features a diamond, and this simpler and more streamlined one, made from solid 14ct yellow gold. Sweet and innocent Virgos should be especially delighted with this birthstone jewelry for their birthday this August.
