Along with the fanciful fairytale charms, the Pandora Autumn 2019 Collection introduced a revOlutionary new concept! The Pandora O Pendants provide a brand new way to style and display your favourite charms and dangles.

Available in three sizes; small, medium and large, they can be worn alone on a necklace chain or joined together. Choose between silver, Pandora Rose and Pandora Shine or combine all three! Or pair them with the O Carrier and transform your belt loops and bags.

Dora Explores: Pandora O Pendant

I decided on two of the Pandora O Pendants, the Small Silver O Pendant (398296) and the Pandora Rose Medium O Pendant (388256).

The Small O Pendant can hold up to three Pandora Moments charms, dangles or pendants. Currently only the silver O Pendant is available in all three sizes. The Large O Pendant (398330) can hold up to seven charms, dangles or pendants.

Wear up to five Pandora Moments charms, dangles or pendants on the Pandora Medium O Pendant.

The Pandora O Pendant has a rigid ‘O’ shape with a snake chain texture. A slim bale is attached to the top of the clasp which is decorated with the Pandora logo on one side and a heart shaped button on the other. It took me a little while to locate the hallmarks which are engraved on the inside of the bale.

Push the heart shaped button to release the clasp and hinge open the O Pendant. Once filled with your choice of charms, gently push it shut and listen for a ‘click’ sound.

Style 1: Double Ooh!

O, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.

Layer your necklaces together for extra ooh! In this style I wore the Pandora Rose Medium O Pendant on the new Pandora Rose Cable Chain Necklace (388574C00). The Pandora Rose Acorn & Leaf (788248CZ) dangle looks gorgeous at the centre of this dreamy design! It is especially dear to me as it was a kind gift from the sweet Anrika whom I was privileged to meet recently. She is a lovely lady and a real Pandora Queen!

The vivid cerise and fuchsia hues on the Peach Blossom Spacers (788111ENMX) match perfectly with the Pink Murano Glass & Leaves (788244) charm and provide a modern intensity to this feminine style.

Meanwhile the Small Silver O Pendant displays a friendly forest scene with the adorable Home Sweet Heart Pendant (798284CZ) at the centre and the Wise Owl (791211CZN) and Classic Flower Arrangement (797907ENMX) charms on either side.

Style 2: Double O Heaven

O suns and skies and clouds of June, And flowers of June together, Ye cannot rival for one hour October’s bright blue weather.


Helen Hunt Jackson

O love, why can’t you leave me alone? Which is a rhetorical question meaning: for heaven’s sake, don’t.

My second design with the Small Silver and Pandora Rose Medium O Pendants is a modern mixed metal look. The Pandora Rose Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) and Pink Intertwining Radiance (781968PCZ) charms sit either side of the silver O Pendant bale. While the intricate Pandora Rose Family Roots Pendant (781988CZ) forms at third O shape at the bottom of the style.

Style 3: Discreet Disney

O Lord, who lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.


William Shakespeare

O lady, nobility is thine, and thy form is the reflection of thy nature!


Euripides

In my third styling, the Pandora Rose Medium O Pendant reveals that Pandora Disney designs can be discreet! This ladylike necklace features the adorable Pandora Rose Disney Parks Minnie Ear Headband pendant. Alongside it are the Hearts All Over (780964), Inner Radiance (781370CZ), Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) and Pink Intertwining Radiance (781968PCZ) charms. This la vie en rose combination makes me smile and reminds me of my trip to Disneyland Paris.

Style 4: Daring Disney

‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’


Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

What if you fly?”

The Pandora O Pendants and Carrier provide opportunity to proudly display what you love. And this styling highlights my love for Disney! Bright enamels on the Pandora Disney Parks Mickey Mania, World of Disney and Playful Mickey charms creative an eye-catching look on the Small Silver O Pendant. Minnie adds her own touch with the Minnie Signature Style Murano (791635) below the shimmering Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes (791818MOP) charm on the Classic Silver Cable Chain (590412).

My verdict on the Pandora O Pendants? In the words of Dr Seuss: O, the thinks you can think up if only you try!

I love Disney collections. I am loving the O collection. I’m not sure what size I will need. I am not a big fan on fake stones, diamonds and not bringing back 14kt.

Hi Kathy,

Welcome to the blog. I am a big Disney fan too. Pandora has really re-ignited a passion for Disney in me. I am with you on the precious stones, I don’t have 14ct Pandora with CZs but I don’t mind it on Silver, Rose and Shine.

Thanks for your comment, have a great day!

Hi Dora! Love your designs. The sky is the limit I think. I purchased the Rose Os to stack. And I put the Murano leaf from the fall collection in the center of 2 of the pave leaves. I will buy the rest eventually. I just love their versatility.

Hi Deborah,

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I really think Pandora pulled it out for the bag with the O collection. A bit of inspiration and imagination when we needed it. Absolutely, they are so versatile I am sure we will continue to get good ideas of how to style them.

Have a great day,

Hola Dora, me encanta este post, la verdad no me hacían gracia las fotos iniciales que se vieron de las “O” pero ahora que veo los diseños en IG y tus aportes ya me gustan, incluso me tientan pues no soy de usar cadenas ni collares, pero me llaman mucho la atención, me encantan todos tus diseños por cierto, no sé cuál es más lindo, los de Disney están preciosos. Si me decido a comprarlo te etiqueto para que veas como lo usaré, pues posiblemente me inspire en tus diseños 😘

Lovely designs . I got the small rose and intend to get the medium silver and small shine and stack all 3 with the medium one in the middle, like bubbles . Not sure how it will look but I’m waiting for our next promo now, probably the Christmas ornament . At the moment I’m wearing the rose one with the long tassel charm on the long necklace that went in the sale last Boxing Day, kind of like lots of coffee beans joined together, either doubled up or very long and layered with my Links of London long necklace… Read more »

like your designs especially the Disney ones.
Do you know if the leather bracelets are strong enough to hold them? I would like to use some to make some shorter necklaces.

Dora
Dora

Hi Leee,

Thanks for your comment. I think you would have to check and see what would fit. The leather bracelets can carry 5-7 charms so you could take that into account that the O is going to be a bit heavier and not overload it.

I don’t think Pandora are going to recommend it however and if it were to break then they would not likely replace it.

Would love to see you post some pics here if you were to do it.

Have a great day,
Dora

Hi a Sarah,

Thanks for your nice comment. It is an interesting and exciting concept. I have seen some exceptionally creative designs on IG including 5 O pendants and two Me link bracelets exclamation

Love these looks! So I’ve been trying to do the beads on top of the pendant (like put the necklace chains thru the beads so it sits on top) but I can’t get it to work…. how did you do that? The one piece always seems too big to fit through the hole

Thread necklace through the charm, then through pendant, then back the way you came through the charm again smile

Hi Emily,

Yes, that’s the way! Thank you.

Hi Erika,

Thanks for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed the review and took some inspiration from it. Yes, Emily has the correct way to thread the beads on top of the pendant. Maybe one day I will do a short video as I get asked this occasionally. But you will get it if you follow her method.

Have a great day,
Dora
