Caring for your Landmark beads

Clean only with a silver cleaning cloth, do not use silver polish dip as this can remove the oxidation that highlights all of the intricate details in each bead.

Scarlett Byrne as Nora wears Celtic Dragon Bracelet

Spotted on the wrist of Scarlett Byrne on the Vampire Diaries season 7 premiere was the Celtic Dragon bracelet by Bead Lovers Korner! I was really excited to see that it was chosen to be worn on the show!

The Celtic Dragon bracelet was gifted in consideration for use to the wardrobe stylist team of the CW Network series in a collaborative gift bag from The Artisan Group®.

Scarlett Bryne as the character “Nora” wears the Celtic Dragon bracelet in the first few scenes of the long-awaited “The Vampire Diaries” season 7 premiere. The TVD episode title “Day One of Twenty-two Thousand, Give or Take” aired on October 8, 2015.

Nora is seen in this tweeted photo below wearing the bracelet, made with red sesame jasper, which complemented the floral theme in her blouse.

Are Landmark beads Pandora compatible charms?

Will Landmark beads work on my bracelet? Are they Pandora compatible charms? I get asked these questions all the time, and the answer is YES! Landmark Beads are compatible with Pandora, Biagi, Chamila and more!

The large smooth bead hole, which measures approximately 5mm,  has no threading and this makes them compatible with all popular bead bracelets and the beads will slip on and off easily.

Why doesn’t it say they are Pandora compatible charms in the listing?

Technically I am not supposed to mention the name Pandora in any product listing for sale that is not an actual Pandora brand.

Years ago the Pandora Nazis were all over the internet forcing companies to take listings down and even taking them to court for trademark infringement.

This activity might have loosened up in recent years, I am not really sure. I had my own bad experience with the Pandora Police and being a really small business I can’t risk a lawsuit.

So I am writing about it here for those who might Google the question looking for answers.

Landmark Beads should only be cleaned with a silver cleaning cloth. Do not use silver polish dip, as this may remove the oxidation that shows the tiny details in the silver.

When you are not wearing your bracelet, keep it stored in a safe place in either a plastic Ziploc bag or special jewelry storage, this will help keep it from tarnishing quickly.

As with all fine jewelry, do not wear while swimming, cleaning, bathing, etc. Some chemicals can ruin good jewelry. Also be careful not to wear during highly physical activities, such as sports, this can cause scratching, denting or loss.

With proper care, Landmark beads will be a lasting memory of your travels around the world!
