I have just come back from visiting the Danish jewellers Pandora at their new London HQ - and very nice it was! Currently storming the UK market with their sophisticated yet reasonably-priced costume jewels, they are now laying claim to the likes of Kim Kardashian, SJP, and Ellie Golding as clients as well as being the sponsors of the recent UK Glamour Woman of the Year Awards.
The fun behind the brand lies in the gorgeous beads (of which there is a huge array) which you can buy for charm bracelets from as little as £20 (from £55 in silver) and add to them to make your own personalised jewellery - more than ideal for bridesmaids and flower girl gifts. It's also the gift that keeps on giving, as after you pass it on, the girls can add more and more beads to it as they like.
The stacking rings (from £55) are also hugely popular as are the earrings (from £100). For more bridal items check out the Love Pods collection which include diamond rings, and the Compose collection which includes pearls, coloured gem stones and sapphires as well as onyx and quartz.
