I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time, while enjoying the Summer season. I hope this blog post adds a smile to your day!
This year, Pandora continues to celebrate their 20th Anniversary of the Pandora Moments charm bracelet. This charm bracelet was first released in 2000. To celebrate 20 years of collecting, Pandora is going through their archives and bringing back a vintage charm every month in 2020. All 12 of the charms will be limited-edition. Each charm will be available only until it has sold out, which makes all 12 charms an absolute must for a Pandora collector!
I am so excited to continue celebrating Pandora‘s special milestone! To celebrate Pandora’s anniversary, each month, I share a special story behind a charm in my collection, and reveal what the limited-edition Pandora 20 Charm is!
So, make sure to grab a cup of iced tea…and let me share with you what this month’s charm is!

The 2020 Limited Edition Love Dice
It’s August 20th! Today we celebrate the relaunch of the Love Dice! The original style number of this vintage charm was 790200 and it was called the I Love You Charm. The updated version is also two tone. It is made in sterling silver with a 14 ct. gold heart. The Pandora 20 hallmark is displayed on the centre of the 14 ct. gold heart.
Prices from $100 USD and $110 CAD.
Each 2020 Love Dice charm comes with a certificate, confirming its authenticity.
The 2020 Limited Edition Love Dice Charm is available globally on Pandora’s estore and in selected Pandora stores. Very limited numbers are available, so it is best to purchase today, June 20th, 2020…if its not already sold out!
The Limited Edition Love Dice Charm looks similar to the original design of the I Love You charm. I love collecting two tone charms and I have missed seeing new two tone charms release in Pandora’s recent collections. It is wonderful to see a second two tone charm in the Pandora 20 Anniversary charm collection!
For me, the Love Dice message is a wonderful reminder to take a chance on love, after all…that is how I met my husband! It also has a lovely nod to my husband and I’s love of board games.
Celebrate #Pandora20 with me:
Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind my Princess and the Pea Charm. I have it on my “Life is a Fairytale (with you)” themed Pandora Bracelet:
“My Life is a Fairytale (with you)” bracelet is inspired by my husband and I. I think of it as an extension to my “Something Blue” wedding themed Pandora Bracelet. Each charm on this bracelet represents our love story and my love of fairytales. The colours on it are pink, gold and white. These were our wedding day colours!
My Princess and the Pea charm can be found on the right section of the bracelet, beside the Mr. and Mrs Wedding Couple charm (retired) and a White Mystic Gold Pandora Murano glass charm.
My Story behind the Princess and the Pea Pandora Charm:
The Princess and the Pea charm represents my love of reading fairytales and fantasy books. Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to read fantasy and fairytale books. As a child, I would stay up late reading a good book and enjoying a delicious cup of tea!
Five Fantasy books I loved as a teenager were:
- Summers at Castle Auborn by Sharon Shinn (still my favourite book)
- The Never-Ending Story by Michael Ende
- The Chronicles of Faerie series by O.R Melling
- The Lord of the Rings series by J.R.R Tolkien
What were some of your favourite books, as a child or teenager?
I have created a Youtube video to more personally tell you the story behind the Princess and the Pea Charm, as well as a closer look at my “Life is a Fairytale (with you) bracelet! You can watch it HERE or down below:
The Princess and the Pea Charm
The Princess and the Pea charm is a two tone charm in the shape of a royal bed with mattresses piled high! It also has rounded bed legs and a royal canopy. Atop the royal canopy rests a 14 ct. gold crown, which represents the Princess. There are also two 14 ct. gold “peas” that are hidden between the layers of mattresses, one on each side of the charm.
On the bottom of the charm, the hallmarks 925 and ALE are found:
This threaded charm is part of the Hans Christian Andersen Pandora collection. This three piece collection released in celebration of Andersen’s 200th Anniversary. Along with the Princess and the Pea charm, it also had the Ugly Duckling and the Top Hat.
And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for the opportunity to be a part of their 20th Anniversary celebration! I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 4 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time. <3

Sweet like honey…
* All 2020 Limited Edition Bee Charm photos are provided by Pandora *
Hello March 20th! Today we celebrate the relaunch of the Queen Bee Charm, in sterling silver! On her belly, you will see the Pandora 20 hallmark. Originally a two-tone charm, the vintage Queen Bee is found on many collector’s bracelets. She represents an unforgettable moment.
“This happy little bee, with the Pandora crown atop its head, reminds us of the power of community and the energy of nature. A beloved charm that holds so many stories for so many people worldwide.”– Pandora
For me, the Queen Bee Charm represents when I was promoted to a manager role. She also reminds me of my former manager, who was a strong, successful and supportive leader!
Each 2020 Limited Edition Bee Charm comes with a certificate, confirming her authenticity.
The 2020 Limited Edition Bee Charm is sweet as honey. Her little smile, cheerful eyes and Pandora crown are some of my favourite details. She is available globally, at select stores. Very limited numbers are available, so it is best to purchase today, March 20th, 2020…if she is not already sold out! You can also find her for purchase on Pandora’s estore:
Take part in the celebration, with the hashtag: #Pandora20
Now, let me share the story behind my Enchanted Mouse Pandora Charm. His item number is, 791107. This adorable little mouse was originally released in 2013, and is now retired. Depending on your location, he may go by the name, Mouse in the Cup.
Some of my favourite details:
– he proudly wears the Pandora crown
– his cute little whiskers and pointy nose
– his tail curling down outside of the teacup
– he is nestled inside a teacup and saucer
– the tea cup has beautiful little accents, like you would find on a real teacup
– placed inside the teacup is the adorable, “Be Mine” heart shaped balloon, a lovely nod to Valentine’s Day
The Enchanted Mouse Pandora charm found a home on my Tea themed Pandora Moments bracelet, a two tone charm bracelet with Pandora Rose and Sterling Silver. I added some pops of colour with touches of purple and pink enamel details. I have my “tea themed” charms on my 17 cm, Pandora Moments Heart Clasp Snake Chain Bracelet.
It also features a few Pandora X Disney charms! Can you spot Mrs. Potts, Alice and the Mad Tea Party scene?
Now, for the story behind my, Enchanted Mouse Pandora Charm…I have created a special YouTube video.
In this video, I share:
– a closer look at my tea themed bracelet
– the story behind my, Enchanted Mouse Charm
– how I styled my Pandora Moments “tea themed” bracelet with other Pandora Jewellery pieces

I hope you have a wonderful day! Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time…praying for the world. <3
A few weeks ago, Snowman (AKA, my husband), was able to find the Pandora 2020 New Year Dangle Charm, for me. It had been on my Wishlist, but I wasn’t in a huge hurry to get it, when it first released. With the busy Christmas/New Years season, I had been so busy and didn’t have time to pop over to a Pandora store! Well, once February was nearly here, I realized I better get the charm, before it sold out! BUT…ALAS, it was sold out every where I checked, including online. I was so frustrated that I didn’t purchase it, as soon as it came out!
Luckily, my husband was able to find one, during a business trip. It was the last one. These are the types of situations that I call the, “meant to be” ones!
Why was this charm on my Wishlist? 2020 is a huge year for me. There’s so much going on, this year and I wanted this charm to represent that! And don’t worry…you’ll hear all about my 2020 year adventures on here, Instagram and YouTube!
This charm is elegantly detailed with beautiful blue cubic zirconia surrounding a classic Pandora heart shape. In the inside of the heart, there is a dangling 2020 detail. I especially love the bale details, which is what first attracted me to the charm. It reads: “Happiness, Health & Love”. All three of those words summarize some of the things already planned or currently happening this year, for me.
Here is what Pandora has to say about this charm:
“This limited edition Pandora Moments 2020 dangle charm in sterling silver is the perfect way to celebrate and commemorate the start of an exciting new decade. The sparkling heart frame features the numbers 2020 designed in elegant script, while the blue cubic zirconia that surround it create a beautiful ombré effect. On the top part, the silver heart dangle charm is engraved with the inspiring words: “Happiness, Health, Love” to remind you of everything that matters in the upcoming decade.“
This charm retails for $55 CAD. You can find the ALE and S925 markings on the front, right side of the bale. It is a lighter weight charm and really catches the light!
I plan to put this charm on a 20th themed Pandora bracelet. Currently, I am thinking it would make a nice centrepiece charm, however I’ll have to wait and see. I do plan to add all the Pandora 20 Anniversary charms to this 20th theme, as well (if I am lucky to get them all).
I still have to add my 2020 dangle to a design theme. For this post, I just added it to my Pandora medium sized O pendant. I am excited to design with it afterwards, and perhaps pair it with the, We Can Do Anything charm. I think they will compliment one another beautifully, especially with the blue cubic zirconia details.
I currently have a mini design with my Pandora 20 charms (on my open bangle) and I would also love to find a way to incorporate my 2020 dangle and the, We can Do Anything charm to these, as well.
For Pandora 20th Anniversary charms, I have January’s Strawberry and February’s Frog. I paired them with the two Rainbow muranos (retired), two Hearts All Over charms, the Blue Water Heart charm and added them onto my Pandora Open Bangle. I am excited to pair all of theses pieces with the 2020 dangle charm, but perhaps on a Moments charm bracelet. I just need to decide on which one!!!
Speaking of which, any one else hoping that Pandora will do a 20th Anniversary bracelet? I really hope they will!!!!!
Below, is the January Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry Charm, followed by February Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog Charm. I still cannot believe how lucky I was to be able to add them to my collection! There is such limited stock available, all over the world!
And that’s it for today’s blog post! Do you plan on creating a 20th Anniversary or 2020 themed Pandora bracelet?
In this video, I unbox the Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry Charm, as well as a special charm for my “Ella/Dog” themed bracelet!
This year, Pandora celebrates their 20th Anniversary of the, Pandora Moments charm bracelet. To celebrate 20 years of collecting, Pandora is going through their archives and bringing back a vintage charm every month in 2020. All 12 of the charms will be limited-edition and very limited quantities available. Each charm will be available only until it has sold out, which makes all 12 charms an absolute must for a Pandora collector! To learn more about Pandora’s 20th Anniversary, CLICK HERE.
I ordered my Strawberry charm at 9:00 PM EST on January 19th, 2020. My friend, Linda helped me find it on the Canadian estore. I had no issues with my order! However, I heard from a few Canadian and American friends that their, Strawberry Charm orders were cancelled, sadly!
This video was filmed the last week of January and I hope you enjoy seeing my unboxing and first impressions of the Strawberry charm! I also compare it to the original, retired Pandora Strawberry Charm.

In this video, I share my autumn bracelet design for Linda’s #Septcharminspo challenge on Instagram! I love the colours of this bracelet, I feel it captures the enchanting autumn colours schemes so well! I also love that I used beads/charms from some of my favourite jewellery brands: I combined Pandora Charms, Ohm Beads, Trollbeads and Corner35 beads all onto my Trollbeads foxtail bracelet.
In this Pandora Bracelet “Design With Me” video, I incorporate three special Ohm beads charms onto a new Pandora Bangle Bracelet design. I also ended up personalizing a few of my charms for this bracelet. I also introduce my three adorable pets. You will get to meet my guinea pigs as I share some cute facts about each of them. This video is in loving memory of my dearest best friend, Harlow. Kristella, thank you so much for letting me know about the Guinea Pig charm from Ohm Beads! @chocokittypie on Instagram
One more little post, although it is quite delayed because I published this video a few weeks before Halloween!
My close friend, Tiara (PandoraToldTales) was in town and we decided to film a video together. We actually had filmed a previous video, back in the summer time. Unfortunately, that footage got corrupted and I was unable to recover the video footage (just a few photos). I was sooo happy to finally have the opportunity to film another video with her, but more importantly…to see her and spend some much needed time catching up!
Tiara recently started her Pandora collection and she loves finding and hunting down preloved Pandora charms. She finds such crazy amazing deals on Pandora charms! We are hoping to film another video together, to give you tips and tricks on how to buy preloved Pandora.
Let’s also hope she starts a youtube channel or blog to share all her tips and designs, as well!
Have a lovely evening,
