Pandora bracelets are designed so that the beads or charms can be added and rearranged. They also include spacers and clips to secure beads in place and prevent them falling off when the bracelet is opened. There are over 600 different beads and charms to choose from and many people add one to celebrate important events in their life. Some beads are loose and easy to unthread, while others have special clasps that secure them to the bracelet and can be damaged if you try and pull them off without opening them.

  1. 1

    Locate the snap clasp. It looks like a decorative bead but has a thin slit from end to end and is more secure than a traditional lobster clasp when snapped shut tight. Use your fingernail or a Pandora clasp opener to press onto the slit with enough pressure to pop it open. Open the clasp fully and remove the end of the bracelet from the grooved cradle.

  2. 2

    Unscrew the beads and charms from the bracelet. Use an action like unthreading a nut from a bolt. If your bracelet has spacers, to keep the beads apart, these will slide off freely and do not need to be unscrewed.

  3. 3

    Undo clips in the same manner as the snap clasp. Most Pandora bracelets have at least two clips which are locked into place on the bracelet. They help space out the charms and keeps the bracelet from stretching by spreading out the weight. Use a clasp opener or fingernail to unclasp the clips and you will see they are positioned over special designed “notches” on the bracelet.

Tips and warnings

  • You can purchase a clasp opener from Pandora retailers.
  • Make sure you put the clips back over the notches, and the snap clasp at the end of the bracelet when you put it back together.
