How to Open & Close a Pandora Bracelet

Pandora charm bracelets offer a variety of options for wearers. You first purchase the jewellery company's plain bracelet, which can be an inexpensive "rope" bracelet or an expensive gold bracelet. You can buy many different kinds of charms and add them to the bracelet to personalise it. It's simple enough to add the charms, but it can be hard to figure out how to open and close a Pandora bracelet. However, it's not difficult to do using either your fingernail or a special Pandora clasp opener. You can purchase a Pandora clasp opener for £22 (as of 2010) at any Pandora jewellery store, at jewellery stores selling Pandora bracelets or from the Pandora website (see Resources).
