REVIEW: Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle

“Dream big, sparkle more, shine bright.”

A modern twist on the classic Pandora Moments bangle.

Although the recent Pandora 2019 Pre-Autumn Collection was fairly small it included an exciting new bracelet design! The Three Link Bangle is available in two colour ways: silver/Pandora Rose or silver/Pandora Shine. Its winning concept combines the look of the classic Moments Snake Chain with the structure of the Pandora Moments Bangle. I decided the Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle (568143) would be perfect to showcase my Pandora Shine charms.

Dora Explores: Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle

The Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle (568143) is divided into three sections. Kinda obvious with its’ name right? But what isn’t obvious is that the middle section is not a flexible snake chain. It is also rigid like the two silver sections but has a snake chain pattern. This is a new trend which also features on the upcoming Pandora Snake Chain Style Open Bangles and Pandora O Pendants.

On the Pandora Shine version of the Three Link Bangle, both the middle section and the round clasp are plated in 18k gold. While the Pandora Rose Three Link Bangle is finished in Pandora’s 14k rose gold-plated unique metal blend. The two tone composition makes the Three Link Bangle a great option for creating a mixed metal styling.

The Pandora hallmark is hidden inside the clasp on the Three Link Bangle. It is marked with the silver hallmark ‘S925 ALE’ as it is silver plated with 18k gold and not solid gold.

The design of the Three Link Bangle is quite simple but Pandora have still managed to hide a couple of little hearts on there! A tiny raised love heart sits on the inside of the middle link at either end.

The new Pandora Three Link Bangle is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Quick and easy to style it adds instant glamour to an outfit. As with other Moments bangles and bracelets, the Three Link Bangle can be filled entirely with charms. Personally I prefer it worn empty of charm or with a few on the middle section.

Currently I am enjoying wearing my Three Link Bangle with the new Pandora Shine Disney Simba (768049ENMX) and the 14k Gold Celtic Circles (750811TPK) and Tropicana Openwork (750834) charms plus the incredible Lucerne (750818) clips.

Wearing the Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle

The Moments Three Link Bangle is quite different from other Pandora bracelets. Hence I have produced a few videos displaying how it behaves and how it can be styled.

“Shine is my favourite colour.

Marc Jacobs

As seen in the video the connected sections on the Three Link Bangle allow for it to move flexibly despite its rigid structure. In fact it can even be folded into a narrow oval shape!

“We are all of us stars and we deserve to twinkle.” 

Marilyn Monroe

Charms can move freely on the Three Link Bangle despite the joined sections. If you prefer to keep the charms in one place on the bangle it is possible to use Pandora Clips with a silicone grip centre.

“If you are going to rise you might as well shine!” 

However as shown in my final video it is also possible to use regular clips on the Three Link Bangle. If placed over the tiny heart on the middle section the clip will stop the charms from moving around the bracelet. Yet they still allow for each link to move.

My verdict on the Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle? Three’s the magic number!

Summary

I absolutely love the new Pandora Three Link Bangle. It has a unique design which is due to it’s mixed colours is very versatile. Even worn without charms it is striking and has a wow factor. The only area that it drops marks is the price which is a little expensive but overall I am very happy with the Three Link Bangle. 

In the UK the Pandora Shine Moments Three Link Bangle (568143) is £100 and available from the UK Pandora eStore.

Lovely review and I really liked the videos. It is a really interesting design for a bracelet. I like how it is mixed metals. I saw this bracelet in store the other day and liked the look of it. I might possibly get the rose one at some point.
Do you know if we are going to be having any offers in the UK soon?

Hi Sarah.

Thanks for your comment. I am glad that you enjoyed the review. I have not heard about any UK promos that are upcoming. I know that they have done a Bank Holiday promo in the past but they are cutting down the amount of promos this year.

Have a great weekend

I think this is one of those pieces that will grow on me over time . I wasn’t impressed at all to start with but it does look interesting and wish I’d thought to have a look at it when I was at the Trafford Centre on Tuesday but when I asked about the Pave open my heart clips that I want they said they didn’t have any sale stock left and didn’t ask if I wanted to look at anything else, they just when back to chatting . Those clips reappeared in Argento today, so they are on their… Read more »

Plus, keeping things secret until practically the last minute doesn’t give enough time for things to grow on us, I just hope they don’t discontinue the bangle before it’s had time to grow on us……….or maybe I do, lol razz .

Hi Pat, Thanks for your comment. It does annoy me the lack of attention by Pandora staff in the UK. I went into a UK store on the first day of Mother’s Day launch and there was no indication that it was for sale. The staff were not rude in any way, but they were not helpful. I hope with the new designs they get a bit of training as to how to interact with people. As for the bracelet, it has really grown on me. I didn’t like the design when I first saw picks before a I previewed… Read more »

Three years ago I went in the Bury Pandora looking for the Peacock (I always seem to miss out on something in the sale that sold out before I could afford it ) and the sales assistant there was brilliant, she checked on the computer and found the only place in the north west that had it in stock, they had three of them . She gave me the address and phone number so I could reserve it when we were going to go and get it. All the staff should be like that. Pandora is a premium brand and… Read more »

Such a wonderful review of the three link bangle! I was excited for it but skeptical about it. So far I’m loving wearing it plain and stacked with the Shine Mesh bangle. I will be playing with charms before doing an official YouTube review. … speaking of YouTube… your video clips were beautifully filmed! Is YouTube in your future!? 😉

Hi Nichol,

Thanks for your comment. I think I saw your three link bangle on IG stories a while ago. Thanks for your kind words about the videos, I have done a few videos in the past like when the sliding bracelet came out and people didn’t know how to open and close it.

I won’t be going into YouTube though, I admire you ladies who do it, but the filming and editing for just a few seconds worth of video took so long I can’t imagine how long a 20 review of something would take?

Have a great weekend,

Dora

Hi Dora i purchased the 3link Rose bracelet in the UK sale.. Buy for £90 and get a free gift.. I then chose the 2hearts rose dangle and wear it between the 2 rose murano. Absolutely stunning. Got many compliments when wearing it.. Thxs for sharing the trick of the clips on the hearts. Hadn’t figured that out haha. I personally don’t like the Shine range.. But your styling is really lovely.. Thanks again and keep up the great work. Love and always look forward to your reviews.. Have a nice weekend. 😊

Thanks for this review Dora! I was hoping to read more about this bangle. The rosegold one is really catching my eye 😍 I did not know the snake section in the middle is rigid nor that trick with the normal clips over the tiny protruding hearts! That is so cool and different! I recently got an Essence bracelet (silver snake chain) and I’ve been looking for a bracelet to stack it with ever since. It’s so dainty and I don’t like how it disappears stacked with my full moments bracelets. Then I saw this 3 link bangle which looks… Read more »

Hi Steffy,

It is lovely to read your comment. I think the bracelet work really well on its own, and a I will likely wear it like that sometimes. I purchased it at a time when my small Shine collection needed a home to show it off a bit, I looked at the Shine mesh but settled on this in the end as it is quite subtle. I am being won over to Shine slowly but surely smile

Have a great weekend,

So far I’m not at all impressed with the new designs Pandora is coming out with. This is not something I have any interest in purchasing. Maybe once I see people wearing it, I’ll like it a bit more. But regardless, I’ll be saving my money for more classic pieces.

Hi Stephanie,

Thanks for the comment. This is an unusual design, and I appreciate not everyone is going to like it. This is the nice thing about Pandora, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Have a great day,

Wonderful review. I just bought it, and it’s my first pandora bracelet. Only thing that bothers me is that with the charms, it hits the wrist bones…do you have a picture of it on you? I’m thinking maybe I need to size up on the bracelet but would it be too big? I’d love to see how it fits on you with the charms. Thanks

Hi Elle, Thanks for your comment and congratulations of your first Pandora bracelet. I have to be honest and say that I don’t think the Three Link Bangle is the best for a first Pandora bracelet. Quite often we start with a regular Moments snake chain bracelet with clips and maybe a safety chain and begin buying a few charms. This bracelet is a hybrid between the snake chain and the bangle. I purchased mine to display my very small Shine collection, some have written that they see it as an ‘edgy’ bracelet that they will wear without charms. I… Read more »
