Not only specializing in threaded beads, both companies also are known for their additional charms, stoppers, locks, and spacer beads. Chamilia has more of a “specialty” selection of charms, focusing on design and beauty, while the Pandora beads are heavier and designed in more of a typical “bead” style.
Everything from animals, shoes, foods, word beads, glass beads, religious symbols and pieces with semiprecious and precious stones are available, and Pandora has many gold beads in their line to create a “higher end” look. By selecting different products, wearers can create a completely unique look that can be changed at will.
Although there are may differences between the two companies – style, material, color, and price, just to name a few – the good news is that these products are compatible with each other. The beads are interchangeable, and may be purchased and worn together, allowing for more different combinations of beads and charms.
This is especially helpful for people that do not always have access to places that sell specific brands of beads, as it does not mean that they cannot continue to add to their collections if they choose to.
This is also helpful for those that find beads of both brands that they desire, because it allows for more freedom in creating the perfect arrangement. Both brands of jewelry offer wearers a simple, safe way to wear their beads and charms without fear of losing them should the bracelet or necklace come unclasped.
The stopper and spacer pieces can help with that aspect, but often the jewelery will help itself. The ends of these chains and bracelets can be twisted off to organize and add beads, and then replaced to keep them in place, and close the circuit. These specially designed closures allow the pieces to be put on and taken off easily, while keeping each combination secure.
So mix and match your Chamilia and Pandora jewelry pieces to get a great looking bracelet or necklace.
