Pandora, Global Giants

Pandora Jewelry

Jewelry firm PANDORA has announced that it is debuting a signature sterling silver bangle that is “classic yet striking in its simplicity”. According to PANDORA, the bangle is uniquely customizable, allowing each woman to tell her unforgettable story or showcase her individual style by adding PANDORA charms.

“We’re really excited to add the new PANDORA bangle to our bracelet offerings,” said Angel Ilagan, Vice President, Marketing, PANDORA North America. “We have heard from lots of women who wanted to combine the look of a more traditional bangle bracelet with our charms.”

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, PANDORA employs over 6,200 people worldwide, of whom more than 4,200 are located in Gemopolis, Thailand, where the company manufactures its jewelry. PANDORA jewelry is sold in over 70 countries in over 10,200 locations, including approximately 900 PANDORA branded concept stores.
