  • Significant other:  Put your heart on her jewelry this Valentine's Day. PANDORA's newest collection includes sterling silver heart-shaped pavé charms, a pendant, stud earrings and a ring, each embellished with sparkling zirconia accents. For the romantic at heart, the sterling silver "Love Birds" charm, which features a small, dangling heart engraved with "Love," is the perfect addition to a PANDORA bracelet. Choose a necklace with a black polished onyx heart pendant for a less traditional take on the heart motif.  
  • Mother or sister: Start a new family tradition with a PANDORA charm bracelet that can be added to over the years for holidays and birthdays. This Valentine's Day, PANDORA will offer an exclusive gift set which includes a bracelet, two clips and the limited edition "Language of Love" charm, which is engraved with the word "Love" in six languages. The set will retail for $200 at participating PANDORA retailers.
  • Friend: A gift between friends is unexpected and thoughtful. Invite girlfriends over for dinner instead of dining out and ask each person to bring a small gift to exchange. PANDORA's selection of colorful fabric cords, which can be layered as a bracelet with charms or worn as a necklace, retail for $20 and make a stylish gift between friends.
  • Yourself: Why not show yourself a little love this Valentine's Day with jewelry that celebrates you? PANDORA allows you to express your personal style with statement pieces, such as stackable rings, available in sterling silver, 14K gold and mixed metals and adorned with colorful enamel or stones. Two or three rings worn together make a beautiful statement for a Valentine's date night.

"We know that consumers, and men in particular, are looking for a meaningful gift on Valentine's Day, and we all get tired of giving flowers year after year," said Angel Ilagan, Vice President, Marketing, PANDORA North America. "A gift from PANDORA is as unique as the woman that receives it. Even better, it will never wilt or fade, making it all the more beautiful."

Consumers in need of additional assistance can also visit the PANDORA gift advisor [www.PandoraGiftAdvisor.com], a website which suggests charms based on personal characteristics of the person who will be receiving the gift. Users can then print out the list and take it to an authorized PANDORA retailer.

In addition to the bracelet gift set, PANDORA retailers will also offer the "Be My Valentine" gift set for $140, featuring one pair of heart stud earrings and one heart pendant on a necklace chain presented in a special porcelain box (a retail value of $190). Visit www.pandora.net for a full list of authorized retailers.

The affordable luxury collections include customizable charm bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces and watches made from sterling silver and 14K and 18K gold.
