REVIEW: Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm
“As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time.”
Add golden details to your style with the two tone Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm.
The Pandora Autumn 2020 Collection featured a mix of seasonal and occasion jewellery. My favourite piece was the cute Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm (799075C00) with pretty 14 gold details.
Like many Pandora fans, I love two tone charms and I am delighted to see a resurgence of 14k gold and silver jewellery. More two tone charms like the gorgeous Baby Shoe Dangle Charm (799075C00) will be released in the Pandora Mother’s Day and Spring 2021 Collections.
Dora Explores: Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm
Although the Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm (799075C00) is technically a baby bootie, I bought it as a symbol of my new found love of running. Pandora have actually produced a Sneaker Shoe Charm (798802C01), but I personally prefer the Baby Shoe Dangle. In my opinion the high back and oxidised stitching details make it resemble a Converse style trainer.
Besides the oxidised stitching, the Baby Shoe Dangle also features rubber sole details. A heart shaped embellishment decorates the back of the shoe and is engraved with Pandora branding. Of course, the highlight on the charm is the 14k gold shoe lace tied in a neat bow!
More details continue around the back of the Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm, such as a stitched leather heel tab running vertically along the shoe. The normal Pandora hallmark for silver jewellery, ‘S925’ and ‘ALE’, is engraved on one side of the charm’s bale.
The base of the Baby Shoe Dangle is the only part which really looks like a baby’s bootie. Completely unadorned, the smooth silver parallels the soft leather sole commonly used on baby shoes.
As with most Pandora two tone jewellery, the Baby Shoe Dangle is stamped with two hallmarks; one for silver and one for 14k gold. The standard Pandora 14k gold hallmark, ‘G585’, is engraved discreetly on the top of the gold laces.
“Gold – what can it not do, and undo?”
“Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.”
“Second-hand gold is as good as new.”
My styling with the Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm (799075C00) is themed ‘Golden Memories’ and set on the Pandora Moments Snake Chain 14k Gold Clasp Bracelet (590702HG).
This styling is filled with wonderful memories symbolised in lustrous gold and silver charms. My new Baby Shoe Dangle is at the centre of the design and the 14k Gold Pavé Heart (750809D) and Pavé Star (750808D) dangles provide symmetry on either side. Recent gifts from my husband, the Happy Anniversary (791290) and Family Forever (791040) charms are also included. Dragonflies which remind me of our wedding day are scattered on the two tone Dragonfly (790898) charm. Two of my other loves (besides my husband) are also represented with the pretty Teapot (790250) and Cupcake (790417) charms.
The Pandora Moments Snake Chain 14k Gold Clasp Bracelet (590702HG) is available in sizes 17cm, 19cm, 21cm and 23cm. Currently it is available at the special price of £110 at the Pandora UK eStore or in the US for $280 USD at BeCharming.com

The Pandora Baby Shoe Dangle Charm (799075C00) receives top marks from me! As evident from my styling, the charm sits beautifully with older two tone pieces and has a gorgeous design. The 14k gold element definitely provides wow factor to the charm, which is reasonably priced considering the amount of gold on the design. As a dangle charm it is quite versatile and can be worn on both necklace and bracelet stylings. Altogether it is wonderful charm which would be perfect for mothers or runners!
