REVIEW: PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant
“Let yourself be enchanted in small ways.”
Create your own enchanting fairytale with this wonderful statement piece featuring filigree hearts and a fashionable tassel!
If like the rest of the world, you watched the Royal Wedding, you will agree with me that it perfectly depicted the happy ending of a beautiful modern fairytale. Whether you have found your own Prince Charming or not, you can still live out your fantasies with this romantic and captivating charm.
The PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant (797037) was one of two charms from the PANDORA Spring 2018 Collection that including a tassel decoration. The other charm is the Enchanted Tassel Pendant (797018CZ) which incorporates a spectacularly long tassel with a sparkling cubic zirconia ball. The magnificent Enchanted Tassel Earrings (297115), also from the PANDORA Spring 2018 Collection, are a combination of the two tassel charms and feature the incredibly long tassel but with a filigree heart design at the top.
The Enchanted Heart Tassel is another excellent example of PANDORA stepping out of their comfort zone! Some of the last years collections included charms that were just a slight variation of older designs. The PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel is new, fresh and interesting!
The main sphere of the Enchanted Heart Tassel charm is an elegant filigree pattern with a curly heart at either side and swirls at the top and bottom. As the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant is an open work charm, it is quite lightweight to wear.
The script like arrangement which surrounds the two hearts on the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant, is picturesque and whimsical. The overall look of this charm is both vintage and contemporary all at once!
The hallmarks are discreetly placed at opposite sides of the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant. The new PANDORA hallmark ‘P2 S925 ALE’ is on one side.
The opposite side of the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant charm is stamped with the ‘PANDORA’ hallmark.
When I saw the Enchanted Heart Tassel in real life I was surprised to discover that the tassel part of the charm was not make up from individual chains. In fact each ‘strand’ of the tassel is moulded to depict a separate thread but actually is fixed in place. My guess to why PANDORA created the tassel in this way, is that multiple threads could get easily tangled and knotted together. This approach is aesthetically pleasing but practical too.
My favourite detail of the Enchanted Heart Tassel is the tiny love heart that is hidden beneath at the centre of the tassels! Whenever I handle a new charm this first thing I do is look for the hidden heart 💜
Style 1: The Beginning & End of Everything
My first styling titled ‘The Beginning & End of Everything’ highlights the antiquated beauty of the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant. The retired PANDORA Oxidised Bracelet (590702OX) presents a perfect backdrop which is gorgeously, gatsbyesque! This design plays with the concept of modern vintage and presents a juxtapose of retired PANDORA oldies with fresh, current charms. The sleek Shining Path Clips (791972CZ) contrast wonderfully with the gothic Wanda’s Garden Spacers (790861CZK). The bright, shiny Dreamy Dragonfly (797025CZ) and Promise of Spring (797046) charms are clean and crisp alongside the intricate Floral Heart Padlock (791397) and the Sparkling Leaves (791380CZ) charms.
I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.
Style 2: Whisperings, Champagne & Stars
The Gatsby theme continues in my second design, ‘Whisperings, Champagne & Stars’, with the new PANDORA Moments Sliding Bracelet (597125CZ) providing a modern take on the Art Deco style. The dangling sparkling end caps of the bracelet create a pretty symmetry with the hanging Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant. The rich, shimmering colours from the mother of pearl inlays of the Celestial Mosaic (796400MMB) and Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes (791818MOP) charms creates a luxury finish to this simple styling.
Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space.
Style 3: Green Light
The Enchanted Hearts Tassel Pendant is a beaming and highly polished silver which looks stunning against green and teal colours. This simple styling on the PANDORA Open Bangle (596477) is ideal for the warmer months and it possesses a boho chic feel that is perfect for Summer holidays. The gorgeous green hues of the Disney Jasmine’s Signature Colour (791648) and Mint Glitter (791669) Murano charms are reminiscent of glistening sunlight, dancing on top of a rippling infinity pool that fades into the distance.
Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us.
Style 4: Blue Gardens
My final styling of the PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel illustrates how versatile the charm is. As the tassel is not overly long the Pendant looks charming worn on a bracelet but it also looks fabulous worn as a pendant on a necklace. The ‘Blue Gardens’ styling is an enthralling and mesmurising design that combines the Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant with the cool Ice Drops Murano (796365CZB) and the magical Disney Cinderella’s Wish (791592CFL) charm.
There I was, way off my ambitions, getting deeper in love every minute, and all of a sudden I didn't care.
With graduation time approaching the PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant would also make a fantastic graduation gift!
My verdict on the PANDORA Enchanted Heart Tassel Pendant? If in doubt, add a tassel!
Sometimes simplicity is best and this design reflects that as despite it is relatively plain and unadorned it is an outstanding statement piece. As it is free from any enamel or stones it has a low cost and is excellent value. The beautiful filigree design will capture everyones eye and as it can be worn on both necklaces and bracelets it is quite versatlie.
