A couple weeks ago I went to the new Pandora concept store and got a double leather bracelet – my first leather! I’m going for kind of a rocker look, and added a couple of “rock star” clips in silver to complete the look. I was planning on using the silicone o-rings like I described in an earlier post, but the store had the Pandora-made stoppers! The ones that fit underneath the clips and have PANDORA embossed on it. When I first saw these from Singapore, I wasn’t sure if they’d ever be available near me because all the different market do promos differently. But I had emailed Anita from Pandora about it and she said:
You should be able to acquire them at your local PANDORA concept store. Some of the concept stores may not have received them yet though, as they are waiting to be redistributed from regional distributors or local offices.
Well, the wait is over! I don’t know if it’s just because the store is new that they receive the stoppers, but they are definitely in the US and making their way to retailers. Hopefully soon ;). I’ve been using the stoppers for a while now and they’re great; they fit perfectly underneath the clips and hold it in place, but I find that the silicone o-rings fit tighter against the bracelet and don’t move at all. The difference is noticeable; I’ve had them on my bracelet a couple of weeks now and they definitely shift a bit. I’ve also got the clear o-rings on my bracelets on the barrel clasp thread so that a charm doesn’t get caught on the thread. But definitely get the Pandora stoppers if you get the chance, especially since they’re free!
