Pandora charms were the first of the new school charm bracelets, and none of the many imitators that have come after them have really matched up to their popularity or style. The designers have that mix of quirkiness, vintage nostalgia, elegance and utter individuality that simply can’t be bottled. Though perhaps it can be molded, polished, and adorned with gemstones … to create one of our personalised Pandora charm picks for August-born girls!
The orange moonstone charm at the beginning of the article really embodies the Pandora spirit … luxury quality 14ct gold, blended with the unusual pearlescent accent of moonstone (especially rarely seen orange moonstone!) and shaped into a simple, versatile, yet utterly elegant design! We picked this charm for big and little girls born between the 1st and 23rd of August – their ruling zodiac sign is Leo, and the signature colour for the sign is orange. There are a couple of extras and options for you if you think your loved one will enjoy the design, but you want to go a little further – there’s an orange moonstone 14ct yellow gold Pandora ring, as well as orange moonstone mix ‘n match earring attachments available. Click through to the product page, and you’ll see the extras at the bottom fo the page in the ‘We Also Recommend’ section.
The orange swirls Murano glass charm set on 14ct gold charm is another fantastic option for those born in the Leo half of August. The swirls design has been very popular since joining the collection not long ago – it’s a fantastic mix of approaches, from mystical to elegant to artistic. There is a golden tinge put through the base glass in this orange swirls design, which really lifts the colour, giving it a ’sunny fields and balmy days’ feel.
Also for the Leos of the month is the more affordable yellow enamel sun charm at right – the sun is the ruling planet for this part of August. It is a double sided charm which somehow manages to be fun and youthful without being childlike … of course if you’re buying for a grown woman this charm could always be one designed to represent her children. Or even another ray of sunshine in her life, if she’s lucky enough to have one! The sun motif is made on a sterling silver base.
Making up the tail end of the month of August is the zodiac sign of Virgo … symbolised by the virgin’s purity and utter calm. Their signature colour is blue, and while there are plenty of options within the Murano glass and Pandora enamel charms sections, we can’t go past the unusual and magically coloured blue pearl charm at right! To me, the blue pearl looks a little like the last grape of the season, still clinging to the vine tenaciously though it is utterly ripe and begging to be enjoyed! This charm is a nice luxury choice to match with sterling silver-based Pandora bracelets, with its accent diamond set in a 14ct yellow gold frame at the top end of the charm, and the unusually coloured and beautifully spherical pearl.
The Pandora selection is ever-expanding – if you don’t see anything that grabs your fancy here, keep checking for peridot pieces among the Pandora gemstone charms, for other cute wrist pets among the Pandora animal charms, or for charms in the lucky metal for August birthdays, gold.
