WHO’S A PRETTY BOY?
AS SOON AS I SAW THE 2016 SUMMER COLLECTION, THIS PRETTY PARROT PENDANT CAUGHT MY EYE AND NOW HE HAS FLOWN HIS WAY TO ME.
The Tropical Parrot Pendant Charm (No. 791903ENMX) is cheerful and bright with it’s green and turquoise enamel. The two different coloured enamels make it very easy to style and mix with different charms and bracelets. Some PANDORA fans complain about the over-use of cubic zirconia on PANDORA charms but they suit the parrot perfectly.
I was really pleased with the amount of detail on the Tropical Parrot Pendant, especially compared to other PANDORA pendant charms. The 2015 Sparkling Palm Tree Pendant (No. 791540CZ) is £45 ($45/€45) and yet only has the cubic zirconia stones on one side of pendant. At £40 ($55/€45) the Tropical Parrot Pendant Charm seems good value. My favourite details of the Tropical Parrot Pendant are his little claws holding onto a branch which has two cute leaves on the end.
One of my favourite purchases from the UK PANDORA Summer Sales were two Tropical Sea Glass Muranos (No. 791610). I love how they compliment the green and turquoise of the Parrot and create a tropical holiday feel. On this styling I created symmetry to my design with the Sparkling Palm Tree Pendant (No. 791540CZ) and the Sail Away Pendant (No. 791138CZ). Worn with the Tropical Parrot my bracelet really does make me feel like sailing away to an exotic beach location!
The cubic zirconia of the Tropical Parrot Pendant Charm match wonderfully with the Ocean Mosaic Pavé Ball (No. 791261MCZMX). In this styling I teamed them with the Green Petite Facet (No. 791499SGQ) on the Green Double Leather Bracelet (No. 590705CLG-D) for a simple care-free look.
The Tropical Parrot Pendant looks very elegant centred between two Openwork Lattice Charms (No. 791295CZ) on a bangle. I can imagine wearing this styling whilst dining at a beachside restaurant, drinking cocktails and watching the sunset.
For a relaxed look I styled the Tropical Parrot Pendant on the Triple Leather in Teal (No. 590714CTT-T) and in Purple (No. 590714CPE-T). These styles show how versatile the Tropical Parrot Pendant is and how it works well in a colour-match or a colour-clash design.
I already own a few different PANDORA Pendant Charms and quite often wear them simply as a pendant alone on a necklace chain. However the beautiful green and turquoise colours of the Tropical Parrot were crying out to me to be worn with a bit more style. In this styling I used two Openwork Lattice Charms (No. 791295CZ) with a Disney Jasmine Signature Colour Murano (No. 791648) in the middle. The sea green colour of the murano matches charmingly with the Tropical Parrot’s plumage.
My verdict on the Tropical Parrot Pendant Charm? He’s a pretty boy!
