After talking about how to recognize an original Return to Tiffany jewel, a luxury bag and an O bag, many wrote to me asking me also how to recognize an original Pandora jewelry. Between one specific answer and another, I thought that I would have written a complete post first to give everyone a definitive answer.
The silver jewel Pandora
Pandora is a Danish brand that creates hand finished jewels and markets them all over the world. All “nickel-safe” certified, ie tested to check the nickel limit contained, complies with all world standards and is considered safe. Despite having very affordable prices, and given its great popularity, it is not immune to those who try in every way to copy it. Checking the originality of a Pandora jewel is therefore essential in order not to find yourself wearing fakes. Let’s see together how to expose fakes in 5 moves.
5 ways to recognize an original Pandora jewelry
1. Where to buy Pandora jewelry
First the Pandora jewelry can not be found anywhere. Just to ensure their exclusivity can be purchased ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY on the online shop Official Pandora (pandora.net), in single-brand stores or at selected dealerships jewelers. Any other type of website or shop is definitely selling us a fake.
2. The Pandora bag
The Pandora jewelry is ALWAYS sold and delivered in a cardboard shopper. This occurs outside white with the brand name engraved in relief and black. Inside, it is dark studded with a pink motif with the O with crown and at the bottom there is an inscription in cursive “Thank you“. The handles are black rope and more bag has two central pink ribbons to close.
3. The box Pandora
One or more Pandora jewels, at the time of delivery to the customer, are always placed in a black cloth bag or in a white pocked box. First shows the name of the brand in gold and inside it is covered with pink satin. Second presents the name of the brand engraved in relief ton sur ton and if it is a gift it should be wrapped in a pink or red satin ribbon during the Christmas period. The inside of the box is covered with black velvet-like fabric and has the name of the brand in silver on the upper part.
4. Certificate of Authenticity Pandora
Another thing that should not be missing is the “Certificate of Authenticity” completed on the day of purchase by the jeweler who sold the product. This, in addition to providing us with a guarantee and ensuring the authenticity of the Pandora jewelry, also serves to provide us with all the information necessary to take care of it. That is, how to clean it, polish it etc.
5. Engravings on Pandora jewelry
Finally, what never fails, especially on Pandora rings and charms, are two small engravings that bear the words “ALE” and “S 925“. The first means Algot Endevoldsen and is the name of the founding father of the brand. While the second shows the material of the jewel, namely 925 sterling silver. These two engravings represent a further guarantee of absolute authenticity. In the event that they are absent or reported differently we are certainly in front of a fake Pandora jewelry.
How to clean Pandora jewel
As for the cleaning of a Pandora jewelry, in addition to remembering to keep it carefully in a jewelry box keeping it away from abrasive surfaces, it is advisable to know how much better it would be not to wear it while playing sports and swimming in the sea. It should also be polished often with a special cloth to preserve its brightness and not worn 24 hours a day. The top would be to put it on in the morning and take it off in the evening. When it begins to blacken, just wash it with warm water and neutral soap by rubbing it with a soft brush and making circular movements. In a few minutes it will shine again. I strongly advise against the use of chemicals and too aggressive especially when the jewel has insertions with pearls or other types of stones.
I hope to have been useful this time too and if there are further questions about it, I remain completely available.
