I know how expensive collecting Pandora charms can be. Those little charms can get very expensive in the long run. I know they're cute, but I'm here to let you know that there's a cheaper way to show you care.
Avon has a Pandora-like necklace and bracelet as part of their Cherished Moments collection. The jewelry is sterling silver and is very affordable. Most times, the charms are on sale 3/$10 while the bracelet is $7.99 and the necklace is $9.99. Avon also updates and rotates their offerings of charms based the holiday season.
As far as quality, I really think there isn't a big difference. Pandora might have charms that have precious stones such as diamonds etc, but I'm not sure about that. But what I do know is that from what I've seen, most of the charms look equivalent to basic charms such as those above, which I don't think it's necessary to pay a huge premium price for.
