REVIEW: Pandora Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm
“I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.”
Inspired by the ever changing ocean, this Murano glass charm reflects the beauty and power of the deep blue.
As a huge fan of Pandora Murano charms I am delighted at the recent glass charms Pandora have produced. In addition to the stunning Murano Glass Sea Turtle Dangle (798939C01), the Pandora Summer 2020 Collection also features a new Murano charm. The Pandora Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm (798938C00) perfectly embodies the rolling sea.
Released as an online exclusive the Pandora Summer 2020 Collection is available for a limited time only. In many countries it will only be available to purchase until the 29th July 2020.
Dora Explores: Pandora Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm
As with many Pandora Murano charms, the colour of the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm (798938C00) varies when viewed from different angles. A blue black core creates a dark background, comparable to the deepest depths of the ocean floor. Yet when viewed at an angle the glass is a cool translucent blue.
Tiny bubbles appear throughout the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm suggesting hidden aquatic life beneath the surface. While shards of iridescent glitter sparkle within the glass, resembling nature’s bioluminescence.
Soft dimples create a wonderful texture on the surface of the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Ocean Charm resembling ripples across water.
The normal Pandora silver hallmarks ‘S925 ALE’ and ‘PANDORA’ are engraved on one side of the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm. Like most Pandora Murano charms, the Wavy Dark Blue Murano has a threaded core.
The Pandora Summer 2020 Collection is absolutely stunning and I purchased quite a few pieces. To avoid repeating similar designs, the reviews of items from the Pandora Summer 2020 Collection will only showcase one style.

“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“Look at that sea, girls – all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn’t enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“Hark, now hear the sailors cry,
Smell the sea, and feel the sky,
Let your soul and spirit fly,
into the mystic.”
Van Morrison Into the Mystic
Although the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm (798938C00) would suit many colour themes, I decided to emphasise its versitality in a a dark ‘Deep Blue’ bracelet styling.
Set on the Oxidised Moments Bracelet (590702OX), the Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean alternates with the retired Fascinating Aventurescent Murano (791628) charms. At the centre of the design the One World Health Dangle Charm (790472CZ) represents the importance of water with the Openwork Starfish, Shells & Hearts (798950C00) and Ocean Life (792075ENMX) charms on either side.
Other sea life include the Shimmering Narwhal (798965C01) and the cute Turtle (790158) charms. While the oxidised art nouveau pattern on the Lace Clips (791011) illustrates trails of bubbles from the Fairytale Fish (792014CCZ).
My verdict on the Pandora Wavy Dark Blue Murano Glass Ocean Charm? Best in glass!
