REVIEW: Pandora Silver, Golden & Rose Glitter Ball
“When in doubt, just add glitter.”
Leave a little sparkle wherever you go with the shimmering Glitter Ball charms.At first glance I wasn’t quite sure of the PANDORA Glitter Ball charms from the Autumn 2017 Collection, but I kept getting drawn back to them, until finally they came home with me and now I absolutely adore them! Available in Rose Golden (796327EN145), Golden (796327EN146) and Silver (796327EN144) colours, the Glitter Ball charms will take you smoothly from Autumn to Winter trends.
Although the PANDORA Glitter Ball charms appear soft to the touch they are quite strong as they have a hand-applied layer of enamel with a fabulous glitter effect. The multiple layers of glitter add depth and texture to this simple yet sweet charm.
The silver core of the Glitter Ball charms is quite small and is plain on one side and has the typical ‘PANDORA’ and ‘S925 ALE’ hallmarks on the other side.
Despite being relatively small, the Glitter Ball charms are quite heavy as they are threaded charms. As all three Glitter Ball charms have metallic hues, they look wonderful styled together. At just $35 USD each, they are an affordable set.
The Glitter Ball trio look spectacular worn on the new PANDORA Open Bangle (596477). This styling is simple yet elegant and is ideal for parties! The Glitter Ball charms even resemble sparkly decorations!
Another effortlessly chic look is to wear the Glitter Ball charm set on the shinning PANDORA Mesh Bracelet (596543). You could use silicone clips to hold this style in place but I enjoy the movement of the charms around the bracelet. It’s like a twinkling abacus!
The Glitter Ball charms provide added glowing metallic hues to a two tone themed bracelet and the Golden Glitter Ball highlights the subtle 14k gold details.
The Rose Golden Glitter Ball looks incredible with PANDORA Rose jewellery. As the sunlight rebounds on the glittering enamel it imitates the PANDORA Rose beautifully.
I especially enjoy the Rose Golden Glitter Ball on the Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet (580728) and at first sight it actually appears to be a PANDORA Rose charm! It is perfect for padding out your PANDORA Rose bracelets, if like me you only have a few PANDORA Rose charms.
The Golden and Rose Golden Glitter Ball charms take on an almost edible sweetness when worn together with the Mint (791669) and Pink Glitter Murano (791670) charms.
The Rose Golden Glitter Ball fuses with the PANDORA Rose in this warm, luminous design and the classical Golden Laurel Leaves (791407ccz) pendant charm lend a heirloom feel.
Abstract charms are excellent to add splashes of texture and colour to necklace designs and I love the Silver and Rose Golden Glitter Balls either side of the Shimmering Stripe Murano (796248) with the Dragonfly Pendant (390336czk).
The three Glitter Ball charms together amplify the celestial feel of Stella Star Pendant (390328d) and make you want to shoot for the stars!
My verdict on the PANDORA Glitter Ball Charms? Glitter is my favourite colour!
The PANDORA Glitter Ball charms are available in Rose Golden (796327EN145), Golden (796327EN146) and Silver (796327EN144) and are $35 USD / $40 CAD / £25 / €29 each and are available from our preferred PANDORA retailer BeCharming.com.
