What are Pandora Clips, Spacers & Safety Chains?
What are Pandora clips, spacers, and safety chains?
The beauty of Pandora bracelets is that they can be decorated with a whole host of beautiful charms that reflect your personality and interests. But, did you know that there are several different types of charms that you can use to personalise and upgrade your bracelet?
Here, we’re going to explain what Pandora clips, spacers, and safety chains are, so you always know how to get the most out of your Pandora jewellery.
What are Pandora clips?
As the name would suggest, Pandora clips are hinged charms that can be snapped straight onto your bracelet. They make great additions to Pandora bracelets for a number of reasons. Firstly, they’re available in a huge range of beautiful designs, which means they can add an extra dash of fun or style to your jewellery, just like any other Pandora charm.
But, where Pandora clips differ from traditional charms is that they won’t actually move around your bracelet: they’ll be fixed in one place. This is great for ensuring all of the charms on your bracelet stay evenly distributed and can also work well if you have differently themed charms that you would like to separate.
There are few different types of clips, which can be used to create different looks. The original Pandora clip snaps on to the raised rivets of a charm bracelet or necklace, keeping the charms neatly in place. They look best when worn in pairs, dividing the bracelet into three separate sections, which keeps your charms neatly in place and stops them from sliding all the way around your wrist.
Silicone grip clips, on the other hand, aren’t attached to the raised parts of the bracelet: instead, they snap on to the chain. Thanks to the silicone inside the clip, they can be moved slowly along the bracelet so the placement can be adjusted a little bit when they are closed. They work best on Pandora leather bracelets or charm bangles, which don’t have rivets. All Reflexions charms have this silicone grip inside, and so can be adjusted slightly when closed.
What are Pandora spacers?
Pandora spacers can be used in a range of different ways. For example, once your Pandora bracelet has been filled with full-sized charms, you might find that there are some awkward gaps left. But, because spacers are much smaller, they can help to fill these perfectly.
Some people also use spacers to frame and highlight their favourite charms. So, if you want to help a particular charm stand out, you could add a spacer either side — preferably in a contrasting metal. If all your existing charms are sterling silver, spacers from our Pandora Shine or Pandora Rose collections could be used to help any of them stand out.
In a similar vein, Pandora spacers are also great for adding a pop of colour or some special details to your bracelet. Again, this can be done beautifully by adding some Pandora Shine or Rose spacers to an all-silver bracelet.
What is a Pandora safety chain?
When you’ve put the time and money into creating your ideal Pandora bracelet, the last thing you want to do is lose it. And, that’s why we would always recommend investing in a Pandora safety chain. If the clasp of our Pandora bracelet ever opens unexpectedly, this will help to prevent your jewellery from slipping off your wrist, reducing the risk of you losing it.
These chains will also help to hold the two ends of your bracelet together, which can make it much easier for you to put it on and take it off. Plus, they come in a range of beautiful designs, so they can add an extra dash of style and personality to your bracelet, just like a traditional Pandora charm would.
We know you’ll want to get the most out of your Pandora bracelet, and clips, spacers, and safety chains will help you do just that. So, upgrade your existing jewellery by treating yourself to some of these pieces today.
