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!Dora

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.
