My favorites from the top 100

Since we just finished up with our series on the 100 bestselling charms in the US, I thought I’d share my favorites of the top 100.  My top two favorites from the list, and of all time, is the lime oval lights and the friends forever butterflies.  The butterflies and the flowers clips were my first charms that I got and they’ll always have a special place in my heart.  I just love the way the butterflies tinkle when I’m wearing my bracelet.

I got the clear primrose path and clear oval lights for my silver/crystals bracelet and I’m still mesmerized by these charms when I wear them.  They sparkle so much!  The same is true for the purple oval lights (but of course, the clear CZs sparkle more).  I’d like to get all the oval lights at some point, but I’ll have to figure out a way to find a place for the orange and ruby oval lights.

I didn’t really notice the oxi crown before the Pandora cruise and seemed a bit rough around the edges to me, but it’s so pretty and a great accent piece.  I can’t decided whether to keep it on my leather cord necklace or put it on my silver/clear bracelet.  I was thinking of replacing the oxi crown with the majestic butterfly, to balance out the friendly florets.

My “I Love You” cube is still one of my favorites (and one of the only gifts) from my husband, probably my most meaningful charm :).  Along with the doghouse charm that symbolizes my fur baby.  I love that the back of the charm is a heart, but the dog in the doghouse doesn’t actually look like my Westie.  I’m still hoping Pandora does a line of dog breeds sometime in the near future!

Some of my other favorites are the inner strength, journey, and the study books.  These charms remind me of unforgettable moments in my life and symbolize both achievement and adversity that I’ve faced, and I’ll always be reminded of that when I look at my bracelets :).

What are your favorite charms from the series?

    Hi Leann.
    I found your blog and love it! I’m a Seattle girl myself so high five for being in the NorthWest. I just discovered Pandora last week and started collecting last week as well and I have to say it is so addicting. I only have a leather bracelet with a clasp and 3 murano’s and appreciate the information on your blog because I can plan to buy during promotions and have (thankfully!) avoided fake websites/scams 🙂

      Glad to help, Kim!

    Hey there,

    Just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed browsing your blog the past few days. My husband surprised me with a Pandora bracelet on my first Mother’s Day this year and it means so much to me. Thanks so much for all the information you’ve provided on your blog, its been very helpful to a newbie like me. Just doing a google search, its hard to find a blog about Pandora that is as informative and up-to-date as yours. You’re doing a great job here!

    Hey Leann, I recently found your blog by accident. WOW! Am I soooo glad I did!? I had no idea there was someone out there who loved Pandora charms like I do! Your site is very informative to read and I have gotten many friends reading your blog as well! So congrats!
    I was hoping you could help me and anyone else out that reads this, by telling me what’s a good jewelry case to keep your Pandora charms and everything else Pandora in? The original Pandora jewelry box thingy isn’t cutting it for me. Doesn’t hold anything really, ya know?? Thanks so much!!

      Hi Ashley, thanks for the kind words. As a matter of fact, I have also outgrew my jewelry box and I did a post about my new Stackers box. It’s holding everything really well, with plenty of room to grow :D.
