The Pandora Timebeads collection was a short-lived collaboration between Pandora and a company called Timebeads, who produced a number of limited edition Pandora-branded items back in 2009. There were 22 designs in total.

Pandora retired Timebeads charms

Pandora have stated that only a small number were produced, and they were only released in a select number of European countries: Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and the Nordic countries. They were discontinued after 2010 to make way for Pandora’s line of watches, which were themselves eventually discontinued.

As of the time of writing (early 2018), Pandora does not produce any kind of watch or time-telling jewellery, charm or otherwise.

The Pandora Timebeads were either clips, allowing you to snap them on to your bracelet, or screw-on, threading on to your bracelet like a regular charm.

This first set of Timebeads retailed for a higher price point at 145 euros, offering extra luxuries and more highly embellished designs.

These first four Pandora Timebeads have a circle of CZs set around the face:

The next 8 designs are more simple, but earn their 145 euro price point with their mother of pearl faces and little inset diamonds:

My Comment

I love the soft pastel versions of these Timebeads, particularly the lavender, but I’m still not sure I’d be tempted should these be re-released. Beautiful as they are, I think I’d find them hard to design around when putting together a bracelet – and I like to stack my Pandora with my watch! Perhaps they’d be nice to add to a bangle to stack with a fuller Pandora bracelet.

Nevertheless, they’re really lovely and a fantastic collector’s item if you can get your hands on one. You don’t see many around these days!

    • Sounds like you have an amazing collection Carla! :D You’ve far outstripped me by the sound of it. ^^

  3. Well a fun concept! I remember reading about this collection and forgot all about it. It would be fun to have one, as a signature piece for any time you would want a watch. I no longer wear them. What with all the electronics I carry with me every minute of every day!

    Ellie you are a lot of fun!

    • I wear an Olivia Burton watch – it’s mostly decorative because of electronics like you say but I do love it! I’d like a Pandora time bead for the novelty, though. ^^ One on an open bangle, perhaps!

      Glad you enjoyed it :D

  4. Hi Ellie,

    I still would love to have a watch. The manager of my favorite Pandora store feels the same way. Perhaps someday I’ll pick one up.
