REVIEW: Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm
“Give me my robe, put on my crown;
I have Immortal longings in me.”
Dress like the queen you are with the stunning Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown charm.
Like all good Pandora fans, I do love a nice two tone charm and I was delighted to when Pandora started to release them again last year. This year’s Spring collection included lots of beautiful jewellery featuring gorgeous 14k gold details and the lovely ladies at Pandora UK gifted me some of my favourite charms including the Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm (799340C00).
Dora Explores: Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm
From Disney to dangle, over the years Pandora have produced many crown themed charms. Yet none have ever shone out to me as much as the beautiful Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm (799340C00). Held in a silver framework, two of the sides are made from 14k gold and decorated with a sumptuous swirling pattern.
Attractive from all angles, the top of the Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown features a 14k gold marquise-shaped flower. This elegant petal shape could also be paired with the Two-tone Flower Stud Earrings (299349C00) and 14k Gold Two-tone Key & Flower Necklace (399339C01) for an elegant style.
Beautiful micro beading decorates the silver ridges and base of the Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown, providing an attractive distinction between the two metals. The normal Pandora hallmark for silver, ‘S925 ALE’, is engraved on one side of the charm.
Previously, the silver and 14k gold hallmarks were stamped on the relevant metals. If the space was not available then both hallmarks would be engraved onto the silver area. However the new Pandora two tone pieces feature something new; a 14k gold oblong box stamped with ‘G585’, the Pandora hallmark for 14k gold jewellery.
The Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown charm is quite large and a definite statement piece. Yet as an openwork charm it is not overly heavy, making it versatile to both bracelet and necklace stylings..
Put A Crown On It
I decided early on that I was going to put on my crown and rule my world by acting right and treating myself like a queen.Queen Latifah
The Crown. Place it upon your head and you assume a different post-tranquil yet radiating assurance. Never show doubt, never lose your dignity beneath the crown, or it will not fit. It will seem to be destined for one more worthy.Robert Greene
Do not wait for a coronation; the greatest emperors crown themselves.
If I had rubies, riches, and crowns, I’d buy the whole world and change things around.Bob Dylan
My first styling with the Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm (799340C00) is a regal theme set on the Two-tone 14k Gold Clasp Moments Bracelet. Looking through my Pandora collection I was surprised at how many charms featured a tiny crown detail, hence the title ‘Put A Crown On It’!
The Two-tone Regal Crown creates a fabulous centre piece, flanked on either side with two Geometric Facets (791722NRP) in deep royal purple. Ornate flowers from the gothic styled Floral Elegance Spacers (790861CZK) and 14k Gold Lucerne Clips (750818) match with the floral pattern on the Crown charm. Silver and 14 Gold charms alternate throughout the rest of the design which is full of secret tiny crowns. How many can you count?
It’s A London Thing
Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.Samuel Johnson
The streets of London have their map, but our passions are uncharted. What are you going to meet if you turn this corner?Virginia Woolf
Oh, I love London society! It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what society should be.Oscar Wilde
My second design with the Pandora 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm (799340C00) is dedicated to my favourite city. Perhaps the greatest city in the world, London. Set on the classic Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet (590702HV) this style has a quirky feel and spring time vibe.
Once again the 14k Gold Two-tone Regal Crown Charm sits at prominent position of centre of the bracelet. This time it is surrounded by London based attractions. Enjoy a spot of Tea (790250) and a Cupcake (790417) when you visit the Queen at her Castle (791133PCZ). Eat a Strawberry (798952C00) or two as you watch Wimbledon. Beware of English weather which is symbolised with the Teardrop (796460) charm. Head to Trafalgar Square and Feed the Birds (797166CZ). When the winds in the East look out for Mary Poppins and her incredible Bag (797506) and Umbrella (797507CZ)!
People watch as you walk along a life size Monopoly board built on with interesting houses (799118C00). Be kind to any Swans (791732CZ) you encounter, as they are property of the Queen. Finally, grab your Purse (790475) and head down to join the crowds shopping on Oxford Street!
