REVIEW: Pandora Me Collection
“It’s just me, myself and I…”
Rejuvenate your Pandora collection with fun and creative Pandora Me jewellery!
Each year Pandora keep surprising us with creative concepts and inspiring new jewellery. Possibly the most intriguing so far is the youthful Pandora Me collection faced by actress and activist Millie Bobby Brown.
Aimed at Generation Z, the Pandora Me range has captured the imagination of Pandora fans young and old alike. Despite being older than the target customer, I was eager to add Pandora Me jewellery to my collection!
Dora Explores: Pandora Me Collection
Pandora Me Link Bracelet
Both the Pandora Me Snake Chain and Bangle bracelets are very similar to the Pandora Essence versions and are compatible with Pandora Essence charms. Likewise the Pandora Me charms can be worn on the Pandora Essence Snake Chain Bracelet and Pandora Essence Bangle.
My favourite of the three Pandora Me bracelets is the punk inspired Link Bracelet. Mimicking joined paper clips, the Pandora Me Link Bracelet (598373) has a playful style. Interspersed between the smooth silver links are three textured links which can be opened to hold up to eight Pandora Me micro charms.
Excitingly, Pandora Me jewellery is the first Pandora collection to me made from sustainable sterling silver. The standard Pandora silver hallmark ‘S925 ALE’ is engraved on each section of the Pandora Me Link Bracelet (598373). Additionally, the round clasp is also engraved with the Pandora logo.
Pandora Me Dangle Charms
Currently the Pandora Me collection includes 26 micro dangle charms plus a Safety Chain (798545C00) and Spacer Charm (798533C00). Recent additions to the range are two Limited Edition UNICEF Pandora Me charms. Support World Children’s Day with the bright blue versions of the My Girl Pride (798382C02) charm and the My Smile Gift Set (B801240).
I decided on six of my favourite Pandora Me charms to wear on the Pandora Me Link Bracelet (598373). As an owner of succulents and a family of cacti, the My Lovely Cactus (798372NRG) charm was at the top of my list. Second is the sweet My Shooting Star (798378CZ) charm which reminds me to never stop dreaming!
Next is the My Palm Tree (798385NAG) charm, as I have always loved the jagged shape of palms trees and the relaxing vacation vibe associated with them. My husband choose the My Anchor (798393CZ) charm for me as a promise of a future Disney cruise!
Pandora Me Safety Pin Brooch
The most innovative item in the Pandora Me collection is the Safety Pin Brooch (698552C00). Functioning like a regular safety pin, a heart shaped clasp stops the Pandora Me Safety Pin Brooch from appearing overly clinical. Add Pandora Me charms, Chain or Spacers and pin on your outfit for fun styles!
Made from sustainable sterling silver, the Safety Pin Brooch is engraved with the hallmark ‘P22 S925 ALE’ on the inside of the clasp and ‘MET’ along the pins edge.
Pandora Me Single Stud Earrings
Regular readers will know of my love for mismatched earrings. So I was delighted when Pandora made each of the Pandora Me earrings available to purchase as a single stud. Of course it is still possible to purchase two of the same design if you prefer wearing matching earrings.
The Pandora Me studs are quite small and ideal for those with multiple piercings. I chose the My Lovely Cactus (798372NRG), My Palm Tree (298544C01), My Shooting Star (298549C01) and My Anchor (298536C01) single stud earrings.
The Essence of Pandora Me
“I am me, nothing more, nothing less and that is enough.”

Although the Pandora Me Link Bracelet (598373) has been designed for Pandora Me charms, it is also possible to get creative and style it with Pandora Moments charms too! Both Moments Pendants and Dangle charms are compatible with the Pandora Me Link Bracelet. However the regular Moments charms do not fit as the hinge on the links does not open far enough for them to enter.
Some Pandora Moments Pendants and Dangle fit onto the Pandora Me Link Bracelet more easily than others. For instance, I choose three Moments Pendants and Dangle charms for a two tone style on the Link Bracelet. Out of the three, the Queen Bee Pendant (367075EN16) slips onto the link the easiest. The 14k Gold Pavé Hanging Heart Dangle charm (750809D) also fits on relatively easily but takes longer to add onto the link. Yet the Disney Aladdin Magical Lamp Dangle (768730C01) charm is quite tricky to add onto the link. This is due to the beaded design on its bale which makes it wider.
“Without you there would be no me.
I am everything reflected in your eyes.
I am everything approved by your smile.
I am everything born of your guidance.
I am me only because of you.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes
The new Pandora Me Link Bracelet (598373) is the perfect choice to showcase favourite Pandora Moments dangle charms. Alternatively, it is also ideal to create a mini travel styling. In this design the Netherlands, London and Italy are represented with the Bicycle (791266), London Big Ben (791080) and Vespa Scooter (791140EN42) charms.
Recent Pandora collections have shown an increase in the amount of dangle charm designs. For example in the new Frozen II range, three out of the five charms are dangles. However I tend to purchase more non-dangle charms, as I generally only use a few dangles on each Moments bracelet. Happily, now I have more options to style Pandora Moment dangles on the Pandora Me Link Bracelet!
“I think you are suffering from a lack of vitamin Me.”
All the Pandora Me charms and the My Safety Chain (798545C00) are compatible with the Pandora Essence bracelets. In this beautiful celestial styling I used the silver Pandora Essence Bracelet (596000) with the Pandora Me Shooting Star (798378CZ) dangling between the Intuition (796049) and Peace (796002LP) Essence charms. The My Safety Chain swings beneath like a glittering trail of star dust. On either side the Dignity (796068P) and Optimism (796046LQ) Essence charms complete the design.
