REVIEW: PANDORA Teardrop Silhouette & Radient Teardrop Rings
“Skys are crying, I am watching, catching teardrops in my eyes.”
Memorialise life’s joys and sorrows with classic teardrop cut gems.
My first review from the PANDORA Autumn 2017 Collection are the dazzling Radiant Teardrop (196251CZ) and Teardrop Silhouette (196253CZ) Rings. My PANDORA ring collection is nowhere near as extensive as my charm collection but these two showstoppers caught my eye.
I do not normally like large rings which are obviously cubic zirconium (oh how I would love to be able to afford a real diamond that size!) but the style and cut of the PANDORA Radiant Teardrop looks incredibly elegant and has a vintage feel to it. The PANDORA Teardrop Silhouette Ring is more clean and contemporary.
The bead-set clear cubic zirconia are arranged half way around the ring band which is not noticeable from above when worn.
The back of the Radiant Teardrop Ring is open, allowing light to illuminate the cubic zirconia from behind to create a sparkling splendour.
Tucked away on the inside of the band of the Radiant Teardrop Ring is the usual PANDORA ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark along with the ring size. Older PANDORA rings didn’t have the ring size engraved inside but the newer rings all do. It is quite a helpful detail if like me you forget which ring size fits you best.
The PANDORA Teardrop Silhouette Ring is the perfect Autumn accessory. Geometric shapes are trending this season and the teardrop silhouette adds a feminine twist.
The simple elegance of the Teardrop Silhouette Ring makes it ideal for everyday wear whilst the 42 micro bead-set clear cubic zirconia stones will ensure you receive lots of compliments! The cubic zirconia stones encircle the shape and glitter and gleam in the light.
The Teardrop Silhouette Ring is quite light making it incredibly comfortable to wear. I think it would look fabulous worn on the middle finger or a thumb.
Raised circles surround the band of the Teardrop Silhouette Ring providing a dainty texture. Even without a large stone this ring certainly has a wow factor.
Once again the normal PANDORA hallmarks are hidden discreetly away on the inside of the Teardrop Silhouette Ring.
Both the Radiant Teardrop and the Teardrop Silhouette Ring have surprised and impressed me; they are full of grandeur yet elegant, sumptuous yet tasteful, pure yet refined. The absolute epitome of modern vintage.
My styling for the Radiant Teardrop and the Teardrop Silhouette Rings is to wear them alongside each other with the teardrop shapes tessellating.
My verdict on the Radiant Teardrop and Teardrop Silhouette Rings? Tears worth crying for!
The PANDORA Teardrop Silhouette Ring (196253CZ) is $65 USD / £55 / C$ 75 / €59 and the PANDORA Radiant Teardrop Ring (196251CZ) is $100 USD / £75 / C$ 110 / €89. Both are available from our preferred PANDORA retailer BeCharming.com.
