How to Open & Close a Pandora Bracelet

Updated February 21, 2017

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).

  1. Turn your Pandora bracelet so that the clasp faces you.

  2. Stick your fingernail into the horizontal slit of the clasp.

  3. Apply a light pressure to the clasp with your other hand as your slide your fingernail into the clasp. The clasp will pop open.

  4. Close the clasp by pinching down on the opened clasp with your thumb and forefinger. When you hear it snap into place, the Pandora bracelet is securely closed.

  5. Hold the Pandora clasp opener in your dominant hand and hold the clasp in your non-dominant hand. (For example, if you are right-handed, hold the opener in your right hand and the clasp in your left.)

  6. Place the petal of the clasp opener (which is shaped like a flower) into the horizontal slit of the clasp.

  7. Push down on the clasp with the opener. Use light but steady pressure. As you push down, the clasp will pop open. The clasp opener works especially well if you have short fingernails, and you can also use it as a cell phone charm.

  8. Close the clasp by pinching down on the opened clasp with your thumb and forefinger. When you hear it snap into place, the Pandora bracelet is securely closed.
