    Hey Y'all.

    My lovely sister has a big, important birthday coming up and the family and I are stumped as to what to get her.
    We want something a bit spesh, and the only thing I can come up with is one of those bead-type charm bracelets.

    The plan is to put money together to buy the actual bracelet, then each buy a bead or charm to go on it - so it's really personal.

    Now, my question is, If I buy a bracelet from one company (say, chamilia or pandora) will beads brought from another company (e.g. lovelinks et al) fit the bracelet. I'm asking this because we're all on very different budgets and some companies' charms are rather pricey. I've found a few sites which sell beads from different companies cheaper, but am unsure whether they'll fit the actual bracelet I've bought.

    Does anyone have one/know the answer to my question??

    Hello,

    My mum and I both have Pandora bracelets and my mum does have beads from other producers on there. However, as soon as you put another branded bead onto your bracelet you do invalidate the guarantee.

    Ahhhh, ok. I get why they'd say that.
    How long are they guaranteed for, do you know?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm, will chat with the family and see what they think.

    yes thats right. I have a pandora the beads start from around 30 spacers are 20. Argento.co.uk is a genuine dealer. Will say though dont buy the leather one it stretches loads i exchanged mine. Also you can buy starter bracelets that work out at a fairly good price if you are all sharing the cost xx

    no - not all beads will fit particular brands because they range in diameter size - for example, my truth bracelet won't fit pandora beads but it will fit chamilia beads.. likewise with pandora, troll beads wont fit it but chamilia will. Xx

    Not sure if they all fit, go and have a look at some. They definitely sell pandora, lovelinks and chamilla local to us hun if you want to get ideas. I have a Thomas Sabo necklace that work bought me before I started my training and I know they do charm bracelets too. Happy shopping! xx

    The other thing to think about is different metals rubbing together can cause damage to each other ( so I have been told!) I have a links of London and I love it. The links start at £30 but you can build it up over time without it looking obviously bear! x

    I have a thomas sabo charm bracelet that i was bought for my 17th birthday with a car charm, i love it as it means so much to me and all the charms i have been bought have a special meaning. the good thing with the thomas sabo bracelets is that they are normal charms so you can buy them from a number of places whereas links of london and pandora you can only really get the proper charms for them which can be very expensive.
