“You are invited to the festival of this world…”

 

Mellow festival vibes will continue long after the Summer with this laid-back golden tan leather bracelet.


PANDORA Sliding Golden Tan Leather Bracelet 597225CGT summer 2018 pre-autumn autumn winter disney new collection release

I absolutely love wearing my PANDORA leather bracelets during the warmer months and they are perfect for the warmer weather. We were treated to some new gorgeous versions in the current PANDORA Summer 2018 Collection. One is the new  the PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet (597225CGT) in either golden tan or black leather. Plus we have the PANDORA Double Leather Bracelet (597194CGT) which features a modern loop clasp and is available in black, golden tan, spicy orange and turquoise leather. With so many attractive colours to choose from, it was hard to pick just one! After much deliberation I decided on the PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet in golden tan.

 

 

 

PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet:
As Easy As 1, 2, 3!

 

When I first saw the PANDORA Sliding Bracelet, I was a little confused on how to open it! My recent review of the PANDORA Silver Sliding Bracelet contained three videos that explain how to open, style and lock the bracelet. As the PANDORA Sliding Leather Bracelet functions the same, I have included them in this article.

Step 1: Unfasten

To open the PANDORA Sliding Leather Bracelet, simply push the opener of the barrel clasp to hear a little ‘click’ sound. A tiny spring inside the barrel clasp will release the leather section of the bracelet.

 

 

Step 2: Style & Fasten

Once opened you can thread your charms onto the leather section of the bracelet. PANDORA recommend a maximum of 5-9 charms on the Sliding Leather Bracelet. After adding your chosen charms, fasten the bracelet back into the barrel clasp. After you hear the ‘click’ noise you know it has locked properly. Gently pull the end cap, to ensure that it is securely fixed in place.

 

 

Step 3: Adjust & Go!

The PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet has an innovative sliding clasp that makes it easy to adjust the bracelet to size. The sliding clasp contains a silicone interior that can be moved up and down the end chains. Once positioned, the silicone centre prevents the silver clasp from moving.

The folksy style of the Sliding Leather Bracelet is on trend for the summer festivals. Its sterling silver end caps are decorated with clear cubic zirconia stones which add a sophisticated detail. Decorative stitching creates a subtle texture to the bracelets soft, supple leather.

As seen in the shorts of the PANDORA Silver Sliding Bracelet (597125CZ), the barrel clasp of the Sliding Leather Bracelet is easy to unlock. After pressing down on the small catch on the barrel clasp, the end cap can be removed.

As the end caps can be completely detached, it is possible to mix up your with different coloured end caps. For example the PANDORA Rose Sliding Bracelet (587125CZ) or the PANDORA Shine Sliding Bracelet (567110CZ). The Golden Tan Sliding Leather Bracelet with PANDORA Shine end caps would look magnificent!

Both the silicone and barrel clasps on the Sliding Leather Bracelet are embossed with the PANDORA logo. The standard ‘ALE S925’ hallmark has been discreetly placed on the flat side of the barrel clasps and is quite hard to see.

Over the years PANDORA have released a variety of leather bracelets including single, double and even triple designs. Smooth and woven leather bracelets have been produced in lots of lovely colours and finishes.

As well as creating a wide range of colours, PANDORA have also developed an assortment of clasps on their leather bracelets. Initially PANDORA Leather Bracelets featured a classic barrel shaped clasp. Later the clasp was replaced with a contemporary spherical design. Recently the threaded end caps were exchanged for smooth versions, which have the benefit of being quicker to slide charms onto a bracelet.

 

Now with the PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet, we have a fresh new option which is perfect for this seasons boho trend!

 

 

 

 

PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet: Styles 1, 2, 3!

The PANDORA Sliding Leather Bracelet is excellent for those who travel light and pack only the essentials on vacation. This simple styling is ideal for summer holidays as the Sliding Leather Bracelet is lightweight and comfortable. By adding a few charms you can carry your look from day to evening. My current favourites are these three silver charms which have a sweet, refined design. The Heart of Freedom (791967) charm bears a meaningful message on a polished silver love heart. One side is etched with the word ‘free’ in a charming script as if written by a bird. The reverse of the charm includes a pretty graphic of birds and the encouragement, ‘sometimes you’ve gotta fall before you can fly’.

 

 

 

On the festival grounds as the air began to cool, and the sun went down my soul swooned.

 

 

 

Incorporating a drop of glamour into the design, is the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant (797037) charm. While, the delicate Promise of Spring (797046) charm completes the style. Read our dedicated reviews for more styling inspiration of the Enchanted Heart Tassel and Promise of Spring charms.

If you’re unable to take a trip this summer, enjoy the vacation feeling at home with this warm, fun-filled arrangement! I love the bright pink enamel of the retired Flamingo (791294CZS) and the Tropical Sunset (792116ENMX) charms against the tan leather. With its cute inscription, ‘All I need is a taste of Paradise’, the Tropical Sunset charm will have you feeling relaxed in no time! Whereas the adorable retired Turtle (790158) and Pearl Oyster (791134p) charms will cause you to dream of calm turquoise waves.

 

 

 

 

I love the outdoor festival feeling.

 

 

 

 

If you would like to add a touch of Paradise to your bracelet, the Tropical Sunset charm is currently available for £25 in the sale on the PANDORA UK eStore.

My final styling combines glowing PANDORA Rose charms with the Sliding Leather Bracelet and is gorgeous against sun-kissed skin. Sitting prettily in the centre are my buddies Bella Bot (797141EN160) and her sister Rose Bella Bot (787141EN160) with the dreamy Pink Bow & Lace Heart (792044ENMX) charm between them. Additional blush tones are provided by the shimmering PANDORA Rose Intertwining Radiance (781968PCZ) and Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) charms. As well as beautifully adorning your wrist, this styling supplies entertainment as you watch Rose and Bella Bot shaking their limbs as they dance!

 

 

 

 

And if the music is good you dance.

Summary

As the Sliding Leather Bracelet can be dressed up or worn casually and is only £45 or $55, it is excellent value. After quite a few years of similar designs PANDORA have completely updated their leather bracelet in this wonderful style. As well as suiting different looks, the Sliding Leather Bracelet can also be worn on the ankle, proving itself to be quite versatile.

Very nice, I have the silver sliding bracelet and enjoy it. It is very easy to take on and off which is what I like the most about the sliding bracelets.

Dora

Hi Harley,
That is so true! The sliding silicone clasp makes it very easy to wear. It has a nice relaxed look about it too which is perfect for Summer.
Thank you for reading and commenting! Have a wonderful day,
Dora 🌼

Hi Dora,
The sliding bracelet looks really pretty and has that casual, free spirit look. I’m contemplating to get one in black for my mickey & minnie charms. It will be a great contrast between the black, silver and red crystal heart charm that mickey holds. I’m just not sure about the dangly bits. If it will get into food or get caught in machines etc..

Dora

Hi Starlight, I love the idea of the black leather with your Minnie and Mickey charms. That would look amazing! It’s true that the dangling end caps do hang quite low. On me they hang a little above my palm. If you are washing up, eating or working with machinery you could always adjust the sliding silicone clasp and move the bracelet further up your arm to protect it. That is what I do when I’m washing up the dishes. I’d love to see your Disney stylings on the black leather Sliding Bracelet if you decide to get it. Thank… Read more »

Thanks for review & styling ideas. This bracelet definitely has a “Woodstock” feel to it. I have the silver sliding bracelet that I have been wearing as an anklet, do you think the leather version could also double as an anklet?

Dora

Hi Alex,
You are right, the golden tan colour is very ‘Woodstock’. I love how it takes on a different look when paired with PANDORA Rose though.
The Sliding Leather Bracelet could definitely be worn as an anklet. I tested it on my ankle and it fits. It would be a cute look for the Summer. Personally, I don’t wear anklets as I don’t want to draw attention to my cankles, but they look lovely on other people.
Thank you for reading and sharing your views.
Have a relaxing Sunday,
Dora 🌸
