Review: Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm
“Love is the master key that opens the gate of happiness.”
Keep your love safe with the two part Pandora Padlock and Key Dangle Charm!
The Pandora Valentine’s Day Collection for 2022 is my favourite of all the Pandora Valentine’s Day Collections to date! It’s romantic lock theme inspired some beautiful pieces and the Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm (790088C01) is my highlight.
The creative Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm is available in three metal; silver (790088C01), 14k rose gold-plated (780088C01) and 14k gold-plated (760088C01). I choose the silver version which will be reviewed in this post.
Dora Explores: Padlock & Key Dangle Charm
The Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm (790088C01) is both clever and beautiful! This two part charm can be worn together, apart or even shared with a loved one. A pretty keyhole motif set with clear cubic zirconia stones decorates the front of the padlock along with a pattern of grooved lines.
The Key Dangle is made with love and features the word “LOVE” twice on each side. Once on the main section of the key and again along the length of the key bit. Oxidised lines in the background emphasis the polished silver letters.
Not only does the Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm have an attractive design, it is also fully functional as a lock! Simply place the key into the padlock and turn to unlock. Please note, the key should not be worn inside the padlock as it will fall out.
The normal hallmark for silver Pandora jewellery, “S925 ALE” is engraved onto the edge of the Key Dangle.
When unlocked the Pandora Padlock Charm resembles a normal functioning padlock and it can be used as a decorative lock. The padlock’s shackle is engraved with the word “PANDORA” while the silver hallmark “S925 ALE” is stamped onto the top of the padlock.
Style 1: Locked in Your Heart

My first styling with the Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm (790088C01) is full of love and set on the two tone Pandora Moments Heart Clasp Snake Chain Bracelet (580719).
Both elements of Padlock & Key Dangle Charm are set at the centre of the design surrounded by heart shaped charms which tessellate around the bracelet. This silver and rose gold look features a 14k rose gold plated charm on either side of the bracelet. The Openwork Family Tree Heart Charm (788826C01) and Shimmering Heart Charm (781241CZ) match the 14k rose gold plated heart shaped clasp. Two Clear Sparkling Row Clips (791972CZ) provide a radiant separation between the heart charms.
Style 2: Key to My Heart
You are mine, I am yours; you may be sure of this. You’ve been locked inside my heart, the key has been thrown away; within it, you must always stay.ANDREW DAVIDSON
So I place my heart under lock and key, to take some time to look after me.Deborah Cox
But when I turn around you’re standing there…
Let him have the key of thy heart, who hath the lock of his own.THOMAS BROWNE
My second styling with the Pandora Padlock & Key Dangle Charm (790088C01) showcases how each part can be worn by friends or partners.
For her, the silver Padlock looks stunning contrasted with the 14k rose gold-plated Pandora ME Link Chain Necklace (389685C00). Use the Key Dangle to unlock the shackle of the Padlock and click into place on the centre link. For him, the Key Dangle look fantastic in its simplicity on the Pandora x Star Wars Double Black Leather Bracelet (540031C00). The ruthenium plated clasp beautifully matches the dark oxidisation details on the Key Dangle.
