Well it's the same in all stores that stock it but a Pandora store will have the best selection. Compare prices on the US site and Aus sites before you go though (adding rough tax for the US) because I overpaid on a few, roughly $30 but saved about $110. You just need to know what's wayyy cheaper over there when you're picking

have fun and look out for the charms in Disney that fit the Pandora, Elias & co in DCA and the crystal shop on Main Street in DL

lol yeah I bought quite a few charms with the graduation money I got but the clip on my first is screwed so have to replace that now $29 to fix or $45 deal for a new one with a new warrenty. Yep I'll replace it lol

Not sure if your buying her the bracelet or just charms but check out these two sites to compare the price difference of the bracelet options http://www.pandora.net/en-us/ and http://www.pandora.net/en-au keep in mind that they reccomend that the leather bracelets only have 5 or 6 charms on it as they are not as strong as the silver ones.

Then browse through the charms and see which ones have a decent price difference or just ones you think she'd like, I think I paid 7.5% tax on the charms I got at Ben Bridges Jewellers at Westfields Main Place. There is also Pandora store at Brea Mall, Brea is easier to get to when driving compared to us using ART or taxis otherwise I'd have gone there.

If this is her first make sure, depending on how many your buying of course, to get two fixed clip on beads as these help to weigh out the bracelet.(http://www.pandora.net/en-au/explore...0851/subcat/13)

I saved between $1.50 to $30 on most charms, except for the three I overpaid. I bought a duotone one for my mum on behalf of my dad for their wedding anniversary next week and it was $95 instead of $120

Hope you score some good deals! Have fun picking

Ohh if you get to a Pandora store mention its a gift and see if they can package the charms in a small Pandora box rather then in the tissue paper and cardboard box they usually do for charms that will look very swish indeed

You know what I can't justify?? THe price difference between gold and silver. Is it a choice between silver plate or solid gold?? I don't get it.

I don't get it either My mum always wanted a full gold and only ended up with a silver because I was given one that was too big and once it streched it was almost sitting on my knuckles so she bought me a new, smaller one and took my original...now I'll be buying my third, first time paying though lol, in almost three years

My gf has a full gold bracelet and at least three full gold beads, in San Fran she paid $450 for a gold Golden Gate bridge...my silver bead of the same size was $42. I'll stick to silver, duotone and pink beads! My 30 beads and two bracelets would cost less then just her bracelet

I can't remember if you're heading up to San Francisco in Feb as well or only staying in SoCal.

If you're going to San Fran, there is also a pandora concept store in the Westfield on Market. You can't miss the Westfield. It's directly across the road from where the Hyde/Powell trolley turnaround is.


And there is a Pandora store at the Florida Mall. I'm on the mailing list there and they occasionally send out special events. Although....now that I think about it, I haven't received one from them in a while. Hmmmm.....
