REVIEW: Pandora 2020 Limited Edition Frog Charm

“Theories pass. The frog remains.”

Symbolise this leap year with the Limited Edition Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog Charm!

The second charm in the Limited Edition Pandora 20 series is the princely 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) charm. As 2020 is a leap year, I can only presume Pandora decided to have a little fun in choosing the leaping Frog as Februarys charm!

Purchasing the Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) proved more difficult for many fans than purchasing the Anniversary Strawberry charm in January. In fact the Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog sold out in just 15 minutes online at the Pandora UK eStore! Fortunately I hopped to it and was able to purchase my Limited Edition Froggy a few minutes after it went for sale.

Like the Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry (798952C00) charm the 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) is marked with the special 20 crown logo. Judging by his big smile, this little chap looks especially happy about his extra hallmark!

Besides the 20 crown logo, the Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog charm is almost identical to the original Frog (790247) charm. The oxidisation on the eyes and mouth looks lighter but will likely darken with time. Also the feet on the original Frog charm appears more crude than the new 20th Anniversary Frog.

Despite its relatively small size, the Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog charm has a nice solid weight to it. As with other silver Pandora charms, the Anniversary Frog is engraved with the standard hallmark, ‘ALE S925’ which has been discreetly positioned on the left foot.

Like the original Pandora Frog charm, the 20th Anniversary Frog charm is a threaded charm.

Happily I received the special 20th Anniversary certificate with my 20th Anniversary Frog charm. If like me you failed to get a certificate for the 20th Anniversary Strawberry, I have been informed that one can provided if you take the Strawberry receipt to a Pandora store that stocks the 20th Anniversary Collection.

Frogs have it made, they get to eat what bugs them.

I’d kiss a frog even if there was no promise of a Prince Charming popping out of it. I love frogs.”

I’d rather be ignored as a frog than eaten as a human.

My first styling with the 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) is a set on the beautiful 14k Gold Two Tone Moments (590702HG) Bracelet. Pandora Shine, 14k gold and two tone charms blend together to create this fairytale combination.

Creating a magical centre piece, the Disney Aladdin Magic Lamp (768730C01) Dangle Charm is flanked with the retired Disney Princess Crown (791580CZ) and the Castle & Crown (791133PCZ) charms. The Anniversary Frog stands nearby, preparing to wear his crown once transformed back into a Prince! Mimicking a frogs webbed feet, the 14k Gold Floral Lucerne Clips (750818) provide a splash of colour.

I’m not a diva.
I’m a tadpole trying to be a frog!”

I went into a French restaraunt and asked the waiter, ‘Have you got frog’s legs?’
He said, ‘Yes,’ so I said, ‘Well hop into the kitchen and get me a cheese sandwich.’”

Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.”

Set on the classic Moments Snake Chain (590702HV) bracelet, my second styling with the 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) has lovely Spring feel. The Pink Field of Flowers (791665), Field of Daisies (791623), Pink Glitter (791670) and Butterfly Pink (797893) Murano charms form a pretty garden of flowers. Fluttering amongst the blooms is the Sparkling Butterfly (791257ACZ), Lacewing Butterfly Clips (791256) and Dragonfly Meadow (791733CZ) charm. Meanwhile the 20th Anniversary Frog hides in the shrubs with the Happy Little Bird and Miss Hedgehog.

My verdict on the Pandora 2020 Limited Edition Frog Charm? Worth a kiss!

Summary

Like the Pandora 20th Anniversary Strawberry Charm, the Anniversary Frog Charm is very versatile and reasonably priced. As it is quite a small charm it does not have a big wow factor but the collectability of this charm does make it very special.

The Pandora 20th Anniversary Frog (798953C00) is £25 and available from the following Pandora stores in the UK.

With all the stores closed what are we going to do about the March limited edition charm? It’s going to be crazy online. Hoping everyone is okay out there!

Hi Pernille,

Thanks for the comment. Yes the frog is lovely. I think a lot of people have anniversary charm fatigue 😂 I am so happy that the Spring collection is so beautiful, it’s a welcome distraction. I have seen summer as well and some of the items are out of this world, so I think it is going to be a great year for Pandora all in all.

Have a great day,

Dora
