The Story of Pandora
Pandora has a fascinating story behind it. Nowadays, it’s one of the world’s leaders in women’s jewelry, but it’s a company with humble beginnings. The shop which would become Pandora was set up in Copenhagen back in 1982. It was founded by Danish goldsmith Per Envoldsen and his wife, and they had no idea just how much their little jewelers would grow over the years. They often traveled all the way to Thailand in search of jewelry they could import and became successful wholesalers. In 1987, they decided to upscale their business. They started designing their own unique pieces of jewelry in Thailand in the 1989 and, ever since, have opened up shops all over the world from America to Australia and all across Europe.
Pandora is a brand which has captured the world’s imagination with their charm bracelets, but also with their ethical code of conduct for sourcing their materials and how they treat their workers. They certainly add a more human side not only to the jewelry industry but to other industries which depend on factories in Asia to produce the bulk of their goods.
Pandora is the perfect place to buy gifts for any woman who loves jewelry. They combine traditional and modern styles and have created some of the most iconic pieces over the last two decades without any signs of stopping. You can’t go wrong with one of their famous charm bracelets with their iconic design and the option to create whatever style you like. They have also branched out into various other pieces of jewelry such as necklaces, earrings, and rings. Their genuine gold and silver are top quality and the prices are reasonable for the quality.
