Buying a gift for a female is not easy – I know I am one! I have no idea what I would like but plenty of ideas about what I don’t. The usual suspects – foot spas, body lotions, slippers – they just do not do it for me, and I certainly do not want anything that for around the house (bed sheets, saucepans, scales). I mean I quite fancy a bread maker but that does not mean that I want it as a gift. This is where Pandora fits in.
Pandora’s new ESSENCE Collection, which will be launched on the 4th November 2013, “is a symbol of belief and an expression of character.”
I have been really lucky to have received a slender sterling silver bracelet and the sterling silver charm ‘respect’ – because every woman deserves that right. The charms are hand-finished from precious metals and precious stones, each representing an inner personal value, and slide effortlessly onto the ESSENCE Collection bracelet. They are secured in place thanks to an innovative patent pending design silicone grip built inside the sterling silver core of each charm.
Pandora ESSENCE Collection is described as: “an emotional expression of inner values. It connects us to who we are, and marks a deeper connection to and a profound understanding of the multi-faceted components that make up a woman and her life.”
This is such a special gift for a young lady, the love of your life, your mother, or just any special female. If you buy them the bracelet they can add the charms themselves, or it will give you some ideas for future presents. The charms can be changed according to their mood/values at the time. I was absolutely delighted to receive this gift from Pandora and am sure any woman would too. It spans so many generations too, making it a perfect gift. It is so elegant and at an opportune time – with Christmas coming up and so many social events/parties to attend.
Now I have the opportunity to select another charm to add to it (the images here are the ones I am drawn to the most), and so my gut reaction is to go with ‘Joy’ – it is my name after all. One of the reasons it was chosen was to bring great happiness to all those around me, so it has a really nice feel about it. It has sparkling cubic zirconia individually set in sterling silver – just perfect for some glitz during the Christmas party season.
Sparkling cubic zirconia individually set in sterling silver, for all the many different kinds of joy to be found in the world.
“Founded from an inherent understanding of life’s precious episodes, and based on a series of four mega trends profiling a need for harmony, commitment, empowerment and a sense of belonging, we hope that the ESSENCE COLLECTION inspires women to express their true selves, through beautiful and symbolic charms that emphasize inner values, hopes and desires in life.”
There’s a lot to decide, but whichever ones I fall in love with I can sure to pop on my Christmas list. Which charm would you choose?

I received a complimentary Sterling silver ESSENCE bracelet and faceted sterling silver “RESPECT” charm and able to pick another charm, as a way of apology for an event cancellation.
