REVIEW: PANDORA Heart of Winter Pendant Charm
“Some people are worth melting for.”
The Heart of Winter design is one of my favourites from the PANDORA Winter 2017 collection. The Heart of Winter Charm from the PANDORA Winter 2016 was actually my first heart charm and I was delighted when this year a Pendant version was released. The 2017 Winter collection also includes a Heart of Winter Bangle, Clips, Ring, Earrings and two necklaces! I would have loved to be able to add all of them to my PANDORA collection but after much deliberation, I finally settled on the darling Heart of Winter Pendant Charm (796372CZ).
The shimmering Heart of Winter Pendant Charm is comprised of two silver hearts. One features a dazzling ice crystal pattern with clear cubic zirconia stones. The second smooth heart is engraved with the adorable message, “You melt my heart”! This sweet declaration makes this charm truly special and it would make a wonderful gift!
The bale of the Heart of Winter Pendant is quite narrow and is beautifully set with clear cubic zirconia stones. This additional detail contributes to the elegance of the charm and adds an extra icy feel!
When I first saw the Heart of Winter Pendant in real life, I was pleased to discover that the reverse of the ice crystal design was quite attractive. It may be a small detail, but I appreciate it when a charm looks pretty from every angle as move around the bracelet.
The PANDORA ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark is hidden away on one side of the Heart of Winter Pendant’s bale. As I have mentioned before, life is too short for fake PANDORA! To avoid any confusion or regret, aways buy from an authorised PANDORA retailer such as BeCharming.com.
My first design is a true Winter Wonderland, filled with stars and snowflakes! The gorgeous Crystalised Snowflake Clips (791997NMB) echo the delicate icicle pattern on the Heart of Winter Pendant splendidly and of course the Heart of Winter charm (791996CZ) from the 2016 Winter collection is the perfect accompaniment! The glistening Stardust Murano Charms (791628) evoke memories of softly, falling snowflakes on a chilly winter night and I can almost smell the snow! I used my new PANDORA Signature Pavé Clasp Bracelet (590723CZ) from the Dazzling Snowflake Bracelet Gift Set to add extra bling to the design, making it ideal for the party season.
PANDORA pendant charms look equally good on necklaces as they do on bracelets. My second design emphasises the heart theme and mixes metals by adding in 14k gold and PANDORA Rose. I love how the heart shaped charms create an interesting interlocking pattern and draw the eye to the Heart of Winter Pendant! The special Limited Edition PANDORA Disney Mickey & Minnie Love Icon charm (796463CZ) provides a dash of Disney magic to this styling.
The incredibly popular PANDORA Glitter Ball charms in Silver (796327EN144) and Gold (796327EN146) look charming alongside the Heart of Winter Pendant. Personally I prefer to place spherical charms either side of a pendant charm, as they sit more snuggly together than other shaped charms. The Glitter Ball charms are ideal as their dreamy, twinkling enamel doesn’t eclipse the alluring Heart of Winter Pendant.
My final styling is simple yet stunning! Two Galaxy (791388CZ) charms surround the Heart of Winter Pendant and create a lightweight lace like feel on the PANDORA Open Bangle. This bracelet design is perfect for after work parties!
My verdict on the PANDORA Heart of Winter Pendant Charm? Wonderful frosting!
