REVIEW: Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm
“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”
Celebrate nature and new beginnings with the intricate Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle.
The recent Pandora Autumn 2021 Collection included one of my favourite symbols of nature, the magnificent pine cone. It is the second charm Pandora have released with a pine cone design. The first was the Christmas Pinecone (791237EN39), a pretty silver charm with a red enamel bow. Although I liked the old charm I would have preferred it without any colour details. Once I saw the new Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01) I was completely in love!
Dora Explores: Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm
The Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Charm (789557C01) is a beautiful double dangle with glittering cubic zirconia stones. A delicate pine leaf curls at the back of the charm while a texturised pine cone hangs in the foreground. Pretty details include pine cone scales protruding in the Fibonacci pattern.
The details on the Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01) are truly spectacular with the pine needle resembling a delicate comb. Clear cubic zirconia stones gleam from some of the scales of the pine cones, creating a beautiful contrast.
One of my favourite details of the Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01) is the tiny heart detail hidden on the stem of the leaf. Other fine points include glittering clear stones set on the base of the pine cone, providing an ornate finish.
The standard Pandora hallmark for 14k rose gold-plated metal, ‘ALE MET’, is engraved discreetly on the inside of the bail of the Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01).
Fill the pathIkkyu
With fallen needles

So that no one knows
If anyone lives there.

My first styling with the Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01) is an ode to nature set on the luscious 14k rose gold-plated Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet (580728).
The Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle (789557C01) creates a beautiful centrepiece between the Pandora Rose Openwork Pink Daisy Flower (788772C01) and Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) charms. Four retired Coracao de Negro Wood (790704) charms are dotted across the bracelet forming a wonderful woodland. Pretty pink blooms from the Pink Peach Blossom Flower (788111ENMX) spacers add warmth and beauty to the design.
Wild like the windMiranda Lambert
In the tall pine trees
I got roots
And I got wings.
Yes this at least I find is surely mine;
after a long hard journey and mighty cities seen,
the pure sweet scent of a southern long-leafed pineJohn Gould Fletcher
into my nostrils breathed, soft rich and clean.

My second styling with the Pandora Sparkling Pine Cone Dangle Charm (789557C01) is set on the Pandora Moments Medium O Pendant (388256) and Cable Chain Necklace (388574C00) and reminiscent of a dream catcher.
Suspended from the 14k rose gold-plated Medium O Pendant, are the Acorn & Leaf (788248CZ) and Sparkling Pine Cone dangle charms with the Murano Glass Leaf (388258PMU) pendant hanging in between. Threaded through the necklace chain above, the Pink Murano Glass & Leaves (788244) charm and Pink Peach Blossom Flower (788111ENMX) spacers add beautiful pink and red hues. Swaying at the centre of the design, the Pandora ME Burning Wings Medallion (789672C01) provides a mystic look.
