When you are looking at Pandora charms as a present … firstly, well done, because they are an excellent, personalizable, affordable gift idea! But once you’ve congratulated yourself, then comes the more difficult part of choosing a charm.
One way of giving you some sneaky insight into your friend or loved one’s personality is using their starsign and their actual birthdate as a guide. Opal is the most widely used birthstone for October, however Tourmaline is the popularly used and less expensive alternative. Tourmaline is a lovely feminine stone, and the Pandora charm for it is a gorgeous baby pink – for the women in your life that are fluffy, always smell sweet and love kittens!
If your receiver is a Libra (their birthday is between September 23 and October 23), they are likely to be graceful, balanced and idealistic. So where are our balanced, graceful and idealistic charms, you ask?! One jumping off point you can use is that getting two charms exactly alike, or two that will complement each other, to go on opposite sides of the bracelet, is an unusual but solid idea for a Libra. Spacers will also be an important part of a Libra’s Pandora bracelet, as they are the best way to create balance and harmony in the jewelry’s weighting.
Libra’s official astrological symbol is the scales of balance, and we have this in a round silver Pandora bead. As they are also said to be graceful and idealistic, look for delicately colored stones, and designs which soar, dance and uplift – nothing too solid, chunky or clunky for the Libras. Something like the Snowflake silver bead would come under this ideal.
If your receiver is a Scorpio (they were born between October 24 and November 22), they are often likened to a volcano under the surface of the sea! They are meant to have a lot going on under the surface, with a magnetic personality and turbulent emotions. You will probably find that strong colors and physically strong metals appeal to your Scorpio friend – try out onyx or garnet charms. The silver triangles with gold triangle bead conveys a sense of power and directed energy – something like this would be ideal.
