I doubt it. If you search Google shopping for "pandora charm" there are tons of compatible charms. Maybe the Pandora charms have a higher precious metal count, or slightly higher craftsman ship, but if you like a charm, who cares who makes it? :)

It's just branding/marketing for the most part and like anything, quality will vary from one place to another. My designer-obsessed sister is a (self-proclaimed) brand whore and must have the brand name, but she "tested the waters" with some non-Pandora charms and still loved them.

I would just google Pandora Style Beads and you'll see so many options out there.
