REVIEW: Pandora Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle Charm
“Forget art. Put your trust in ice cream.”
Add a scoop of sweetness to your bracelet with the sparkling Pavé Ice Cream Cone dangle!
Dora Explores: Pandora Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle Charm
The new Pandora Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle Charm (798801C01) is not the first Pandora ice cream charm. Previously the Ice Cream Pendant (791710CZR) was released as part of the Pandora Pre-Autumn 2015 Collection. Both charms have a similar structure and include pink stones in the design. However the new Pavé Ice Cream charm has a clean modern style and includes a fun Pandora hidden heart!
The original Pandora Ice Cream Dangle featured a close knit diamond pattern on the cone. While the new Pavé Ice Cream Cone Charm has a textured waffle grid style cone, highlighted with subtle oxidised lines.
Dazzling pink synthetic sapphires to form an appealing dripping scoop of ice cream. A heart filled with clear cubic zirconia stones resembles dollop of sweet vanilla on one side of the Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle.
A single clear cubic zirconia stone is set on one side of the bale of the new Pandora Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle. The normal Pandora silver hallmark ‘S925 ALE’ is engraved on one side of the threaded bale.
Style 1: What’s Your Flavour?
“Who buys plain vanilla ice cream from Ben & Jerry’s, anyway?
Is there a greater waste?”
“Young man, you are a person of taste and imagination.
Also, you have the will power of ten men; otherwise you would not dare veer away from the common flavours listed on the menu and order, straight out, without quibble or reservation, such an unheard-of things as lime-vanilla ice.”
Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
“There was still a line, but a bit of waiting was a good thing;
you need time to choose between pink grapefruit and raspberry sorbet or cinnamon and honey nougat ice cream.”
Elizabeth Bard, Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes
Everyone likes ice cream but we all have our favourite flavours. Interestingly your favourite ice cream flavour says a lot about your personality. Vanilla may be thought of as a boring flavour but apparently the people who love this flavour are colourful characters who are known to be impulsive risk-takers! Whereas strawberry lovers are introverts, chocolate lovers are flirtatious and coffee lovers are dramatic.
My first styling with the Pandora Pavé Ice Cream Cone Dangle Charm (798801C01) colourfully illustrates various ice cream lovers individual tastes. A few of the Pandora Friends chill out together with an ice cream on the Pandora Moments Mesh Bracelet (596543).
Daisy the Rabbit (798763C00) enjoys the lavender flavoured Wavy Lavender Murano (798875C00) and Nino the Hedgehog (798353EN16) favours the tart raspberry ripple Wavy Fancy Pink Murano (798872C00). Across the bracelet separated by the sparkling Clear Pavé Clip (791817CZ) the other Pandora Friends Theo Bear (798695C00) enjoys a pistachio flavoured Green Looking Glass Murano (790925). While Bruno the Unicorn (797609) has a sweeter tooth and prefers the butterscotch flavoured Belle’s Signature Colour Murano (791643).
Style 2: Day Tripper
“I am forever yearning for ice cream.
And cats. Lots and lots of cats.”
“Stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles.
Instead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot oftener, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more and cry less.
Life must be lived as we go along.”
Robert J. Hastings, Tinyburg Tales.
“I guess ice cream is one of those things that are beyond imagination.”
Ice cream is a easy way to add a little luxury to life and a scoop or two makes any occasion a little sweeter! My second styling with the Pavé Ice Cream Cone (798801C01) is titled ‘Day Tripper’ and illustrates the simple pleasure of eating an ice cream on a day out.
This fun filled design features a whooping total of seven dangles spaced around the classic Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet (590702HV). Treat yourself to a ice cream while visiting famous landmarks such as London’s Big Ben (791080) or experience Italian gelato after a ride on a Gondola (791143CZ) in Venice. Enjoy a cool treat and rest tired feet after walking around the Viking (790588) museum. Even errands to the garden centre to pick up a Cactus (798786C01) can be made special with an ice cream with friends!
