REVIEW: Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet
“I feel undressed if I don’t have my pearls on.”
Pearls are always appropriate and now with the Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet they have endless personalisation possibilities!
The exciting Pandora ME Collection was relaunched on the 30th September 2021 and Pandora fans across the world are already in love! Inspired by the energy of Gen Z, the refreshed Pandora ME Collection is full of the power of self-expression and creativity.
My favourite piece from the collection is the gorgeous Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet (599694C0). The collection also includes the matching Freshwater Cultured Pearl Necklace (399658C01).
Dora Explores: Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet
Pearls are reimagined in the beautiful Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet (599694C0). One side of the bracelet is made up of sterling silver links with a row of ethereal pearls on the other side. The bracelet is available in five sizes; 15cm, 16cm, 17.5cm, 20cm and 23cm. Yet the customisable chain allows you to change the fit by adding or removing styling links.
At first the string of pearls may feel a bit stiff on the Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet. This is completely normal as pearls need to be strung very tightly, as the silk thread will stretch with use. If a strand is strung loosely, it’s a sign of poor quality. After the bracelet has been worn for a while, the thread will gradually relax, allowing your pearls to lie perfectly against the skin.
Like all of the new Pandora ME bracelets, the Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet features a new style carabiner clasp closure. The original Pandora ME Link Chain Bracelet (598373) has a small version of the classic logo ball clasp. I personally love the new carabiner style clasp and find it much easier to open and is more congruous the the silver links than the ball clasp.
The Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet is made up of five separate pieces including a strand of pearls featuring an eye clasp on each side with one side attached to a silver link. Other pieces include two closed links joined together, the carabiner clasp attached to a closed link and two openable links. Both the closed links and openable links are the same shape and size but the openable links have grooved lines to set them apart.
Once curated the Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet can be styled with up to eight mini dangles on the closed links or two medallions on either closed or openable links.
Each section of the Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet is engraved with ‘S925 ALE’, the normal Pandora hallmarks for silver jewellery. The carabiner clasp is also stamped with the Pandora logo on either side.

The new Pandora ME Freshwater Cultured Pearl Bracelet (599694C0) offers endless styling possibilities. Style it the 1, 2, 3 Pandora ME way and pick your look. One, keep it original and allow the luminous pearls to do the talking for you!
Two, play with colour and texture and switch out the links. I swapped the sterling silver links and clasp with the links and clasp from the 14k rose gold-plated Pandora ME Link Chain Bracelet (589588C00). The lustrous pearls look especially elegant with the beautiful blush of rose gold.
Three, have fun, customise and create your own unique style! I removed one of the openable styling links and added the Pandora ME Safety Pin Brooch (698552C00) for a cheeky punk look. Next I threaded three of my favourite Pandora ME dangles onto the Safety Pin section, the Pandora ME Happy Mini Dangle (799678C01), Magical Unicorn Mini Dangle (798360) and the Shooting Star Mini Dangle (798378CZ).
