Mother's Day with Argento and Pandora



 Pandora Buddha Charm* £30

When an email hit my inbox about the Pandora collection for Mother's Day I was excited to see the range on the Argento website. Pandora has been one of my favourite jewellery brands for a few years since starting my charm bracelet.

The lovely team at Argento offered me the chance to pick out a charm for my Mum to gift her, but this will be the second Mother's Day since she passed away. When browsing the Pandora collection I found the most perfect charm to remind me of my Mum that fits in so well on my bracelet. My Pandora bracelet is full of great memories and reminds me of lots of people that have made an impact on my life for all different reasons, I wear it every day and it really means a lot too me.

My Mum used to have a small wooden Buddha that she would pack in her suitcases to take on holiday and ended up always carrying with her in her handbag, she had it to bring her luck and remind her of family, love and just happy things. She wasn't religious or superstitious, it was just one of those things. I used to be obsessed with it and want to play with when I was younger, and when I went away without her she let me take it with me. It probably seems silly but as soon as I saw the Pandora Buddha charm it just made me think of her and I thought it would be a lovely but subtle way to have her with me all the time in a special way.

I've added it to my bracelet and it already always reminds me of Mum and that even though it's the hardest thing every day not being able to speak to her, I know she is with me still in some way. If you haven't got a Pandora bracelet or are looking to treat your Mum this Mother's Day then head to Argento, I think it's such a sentimental thing to own and be able to add too.

Have you got a Pandora bracelet?

  1. This is really touching - I'm so glad you can always carry a piece of her with you now. Funnily enough I also posted about my Pandora bracelet today http://www.ramblingofabeautyblogger.com/2014/03/accessories-pandora-bracelet.html

  2. I hope Mothers Day isn't too hard for you lovely. I struggled enough with not having a Grandma on the day! I think a charm bracelet is a good way of having any loved ones with you, and I love how you can get a charm depending on the person & their style.
