Review Time: Sterling Star Trek Charm for Pandora Style Bracelets!

“Space, the final frontier... Your mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before”.

The whimsical design of this charm conjures images of strange new worlds light years from our own, and adventures into the unknown (which makes this charm a must have for any sci-fi fan). This charm is finely crafted from genuine sterling silver and features oxidized details. Underneath the charm is stamped “925” indicating the charm's content of pure silver. This charm fits my Pandora bracelet perfectly, and it also fit all of my other Pandora-style jewelry. Unlike genuine Pandora charms this charm simply slips on to the bracelet with ease, instead of twisting onto the bracelet. When I compared this charm to a genuine Pandora charm they were identical in weight. The weight of a charm is very important as charms that weigh more than Pandora charms could possibly damage your Pandora bracelet. This is something to keep mind when purchasing charms that are not crafted by Pandora.

What Does It Mean?:
The design of this charm was inspired by the TV series Star Trek, from the race known as the Vulcan. In the series this hand gesture meant “live long and prosper”. This charm is a nice keep sake for any Sci-Fi fan.

About Purple Turtle Porium:
Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada Ms. Joanne (the artist and mastermind behind Purple Turtle Porium) is committed to providing quality beads that will fit all styles of European charm bracelets. As a Pandora bead collector and a proud mother of two she is particular about the quality and safety of the beads she sells. Ms. Joanne states "I am very particular about the beads that I sell, and they must all pass a rigorous inspection." Purple Turtle Porium's policy is complete customer satisfaction. If for any reason a customer is not satisfied with their purchase a full refund of the purchase price is given. Aside from the cute design of the charm, this policy is what sold me on buying it. There are many online retailers making clams that their beads are compatible with Pandora bracelets, but often times they fail to deliver quality charms. Unlike other shops this one has a policy to keep this from happening.

Personal Opinion:
 I love the unique design of this charm as it adds personality to my Pandora bracelet. The quality and craftsmanship of this charm is impressive.  I am very pleased with my order and highly recommend Purple Turtle Porium to those searching for truly unique charms.

Where to Buy?:
