REVIEW: PANDORA Holiday Shine Bright Radio City Rockettes Gift Set
“Dream big. Sparkle more. Shine bright.”
PANDORA is the official partner of the iconic Rockettes Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall for 2017. To celebrate this dazzling partnership, PANDORA has created a Limited Edition Shine Bright Charm and Holiday Ornament. The Limited Edition PANDORA Shine Bright Charm (796259EN07) can be purchased globally but is only available with the Holiday Ornament (B800641) in the US.
The PANDORA Shine Bright Charm and Ornament Gift Set is presented in a stylish white gift box with a simple black PANDORA logo. It looks wonderful wrapped in the new green and gold PANDORA ribbon!
Padded black satin encases the Radio City Rockettes Ornament, ensuring it’s protection for when it is stored. The padding deep and plush and the holiday ornament sits prettily inside.
A charming silver coloured keepsake token is linked at the top of the Rockettes Holiday Ornament. On one side is the PANDORA logo and the year date ‘2017’.
The reverse of the souvenir badge is engraved with the logo for the ‘Christmas Spectacular at Radio City starring the Rockettes’.
The Rockettes Holiday Ornament is a larger version of the Limited Edition PANDORA Shine Bright Charm. The vivid, glossy red enamel really pops out from the forest green wrapping and the swirling pattern adds a familiar homely feeling.
When I first opened the Rockettes Holiday Ornament I was surprised at it’s weight! It is satisfyingly substantial and feels luxurious to the touch. A magnetic button is placed discreetly to the edge of the ornament, which keeps it safely closed for when it is in use.
The Limited Edition PANDORA Shine Bright Charm sits snuggly in a little hollow in the middle of the black velvet, ready to surprise the recipient!
The PANDORA logo is printed in shimmering silver on the top of the inside of the Rockettes Holiday Ornament. The Ornament has a cheery, bright red ribbon attached, ready to be hung!
The Limited Edition PANDORA Shine Bright Charm is hand finished with a brilliant red enamel which is slightly opaque, creating a luminous quality. It really does resemble a beautiful, soft, glowing bauble.
The swirling design, curls it’s way around the PANDORA Shine Bright Charm, making it appealing from every angle!
A Limited Edition PANDORA wouldn’t be complete without the years date engraved and the PANDORA Shine Bright Charm has ‘2017’ etched on one side.
As soon as I saw the Shine Bright Charm I thought it would look perfect paired with the PANDORA Silver (796327EN144) and Golden Glitter Ball (796327EN146) charms from the Autumn 2017 Collection. Both charms were favourites of mine from the Autumn collection and the twinkling glitter looks wonderful next to the Shine Bright Charm. The Glitter Ball charms have a bauble like look and the three charms together create a sweet ornate style that is incredibly elegant on the PANDORA Mesh Bracelet (596543).
If you haven’t yet added the new Mesh Bracelet to your PANDORA collection, now is the perfect time to do so as it is included in the ‘Wrap Up 35% off’ PANDORA promotion on BeCharming.com. Normally $60 USD, the PANDORA Mesh Bracelet is available for just $39 USD for the next few days.
My second styling is simple yet sophisticated! If you are a regular reader you will know how much I adore the PANDORA Fascinating Olive Crystal charm! They look incredibly beautiful placed either side of the Limited Edition Shine Bright Charm and I love the green and red combination. I used the silver stoppers between the charms to cushion the Shine Bright Charm and avoid the design looking squashed. The PANDORA Open Bangle (596477) is so versatile it has quickly become my favourite PANDORA bracelet!
Once again using my new favourite bracelet, I emphasised the vintage feel of the PANDORA Shine Bright Charm with the delicate Openwork Lattice charms (791295cz). Unfortunately the PANDORA Openwork Lattice charm is now retired, but you recreate the look with the stunning Glittering Shapes charm (796243CZ) from the PANDORA Autumn 2017 collection.
In my final design, I used the PANDORA Shine Bright Charm as a spectacular centre piece in a wintry design. The Galaxy charms (791388cz) and Stardust Murano charms (791628) evoke the feeling of a magical, winter’s night sky. The Galaxy charm is one of my favourites and it is also in the current ‘Wrap Up 35% off’ sale. It is normally $55 USD but for a couple of days you can purchase it from BeCharming.com for $35.75 USD!
My verdict on the PANDORA Shine Bright Charm? Baubleliscious!
The Limited Edition Shine Bright Charm and Holiday Ornament (B800641) is available only within the US and can be purchased for $85 USD from our preferred PANDORA retailer BeCharming.com.
