Hooray – a new year, an opportunity for a new start … and plenty of new and beautiful Pandora charms! January is often a sort of recovery month, after the dizzying highs of Christmas (and Thanksgiving in some parts of the world), as well as New Year’s Eve. It’s the ‘Monday’ of the months … and often your wallet is seeing the after-effects. You can still give gorgeous, long-lasting and truly sentimental gifts to your loved ones with birthdays this month, though – with the help of Pandora’s gorgeous and budget-friendly charms. Today we are looking at some Pandora charms that are perfect for January-born gals.
The month of January, that ‘Monday of months’, is home to the zodiac signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. Where Capricorns are strong, very serious, always true to themselves and close to their small circle of friends, Aquarians are supposed to be more mercurial – independent, highly original and loves experimentation. The turtle charm at the beginning of the article is designed for Capricorns, who can be a little shy and insecure at times, despite their amazing inner strength. The turtle is part of the animal collection, and made out of oxidized sterling silver, putting it in one of the most affordable categories of Pandora charms. Turtles always remain close to the earth, which is the signature element for Capricorns.
Aquarius is an air sign; an appropriate element to capture their personality, since they are always flitting from one thing to another … usually as soon as something they like becomes popular with other people! Ladybugs are the same, riding the breeze joyfully, and with that same hard shell of indifference your Aquarius girl is blessed with … she could never be labeled as ‘too sensitive’! Again, this is one of the most affordable charms on site, despite it’s detail and sweetness.
Garnet is the birthstone for January, and both of the garnet Pandora charms at right are great buys for either Capricorn or Aquarius recipients. Garnets are not a highly reflective stone – so they suit both the seriousness and staid nature of Capricorns, and the need of Aquarians to be different to the norm. The wrap charm is set in sterling silver, and with its two inset gemstones is just a little more than standard silver charms. The birthstone charm is ultra-affordable, and there are currently plenty in stock.
Color-wise, Aquarius’s signature color is indigo, while Capricorn’s is a staid, earthy brown. The dark blue flowers against the lighter background in the Murano glass charm at right make for an atmosphere like an intense summer sky, against which the capricious Aquarian breeze floats freely . The patterns in Murano glass are created inside the actual glass, making them as durable as the sterling silver inner section is.
If you’re shopping for a Capricorn loved one, you’ll understand why brown is their signature color. Always serious, never acting on a whim, they are as steady as the earth and trees themselves. The pau amerelo wood charm at right is a great choice for Capricorns – staid, natural and slow-growing, wood captures the very essence of Capricorns. They are not swayed by other people’s opinions, but will sometimes hide themselves away for protection. There are several other wood types within the collection – save them away as ideas for Christmas, Easter, and other gifts for your woody one!
Aquarians can be sort of cheeky, random, and capricious … they love to have fun, and also love to tease people! The Halloween pumpkin charm at right will really tickle the fancy of your Aquarian loved ones. It is a simple sterling silver oxidized piece, and very budget-friendly, and ships anywhere in Australia for free.
Capricorn women, as we mentioned earlier, are strong girls. They don’t necessarily have the confidence to go along with that strength, but as shy as they can be, they are hard as diamonds and never swayed by what others around them are doing. Diamond Pandora charms are the perfect choice for their birthday gifts – we chose the flower dangle at right because flowers grow out of, and remain perpetually close to, the cool earth which represent Capricorns. The diamond is tiny, only 0.01ct, but because of the design of the charm, is a very prominent part of the design.
The Pandora range is enormous, and ever growing, and the charms will remain a focal point of their jewelry collection for their affordability and personalizability. If you haven’t found the perfect gift for your January-born loved one yet, keep browsing through the Pandora charms pages.
