REVIEW: Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm
“Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy.”
Support The Resistance in style with the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm
The Force was awakened when on Thursday 1st October 2020 the highly anticipated Star Wars x Pandora Collection was released! Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite pieces from the capsule collection including the galactic heroine Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm (799251C01).
Dora Explores: Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm
The Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm (799251C01) is one of just three dangle charms in the new Star Wars x Pandora Collection. All three dangle designs include matching bales which are decorated with light blue cubic zirconia stones set within beautiful star bursts. Both the Star Wars x Pandora Lightsaber (799252C01) and the Princess Leia charms are double dangles featuring one solid disc and a second featuring cut out imagery.
The solid silver disc on the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm is engraved with the message, ‘Don’t mess with this Princess’. This is perfect text considering Princess Leia’s feisty nature and her sassy one liners full of wit! My favourites include; “I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.” and “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought.”.
The front disc on the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Charm depicts a sombre looking Leia watching her home planet Alderaan seconds before Governor Tarkin commands its destruction with the Death Star. Senator Leia is illustrated in the same clothing as this famous scene from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, wearing a white high necked dress and her hair worn in her iconic style of two side buns. She is beautifully framed within an ornate border set with four stellar blue crystals.
The second disc on the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Dangle Charm pictures the Death Star looming on the right side ready to fire upon Planet Alderaan in the distance on the left. Three silver stars shine in the background surrounded with hand painted shimmering blue enamel.
The normal Pandora hallmark for silver ‘S925 ALE’ and ‘PANDORA’ are stamped on one side of the bale of the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Dangle Charm. While the other side is engraved with ‘©LFL’, the copy write mark for LucasFilm Ltd.
Pandora kindly gifted me my favourite charms from the Star Wars x Pandora Collection. Each review will showcase the individual character with a dedicated design.

My styling with the Star Wars x Pandora Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm (799251C01) is inspired by the galactic fashion that features in the Star Wars films. Especially Leia’s individual style. Despite being part of the Alderaanian royal family, Leia does not dress like a stereotypical girly princess. Rather her outfits reflect her important position as a member of the Imperial Senate and heroic leader of the Rebel Alliance. Feisty, fearless and fun she is a princess that doesn’t need rescuing.
To create this intrepid look I positioned the Princess Leia Dangle at the centre of the silver Pandora Moments Small O Pendant (398296) with the Sky Mosaic Pavé (791261NSBMX) and the Aqua Blue Ripples (797098NAB) charms on either side. The Half Moon & Star Safety Chain (797512CZ) provides extra dimension and symbolises the relationship between Leia and her brother Luke. Twins separated at birth they grew up, not only in different families but also on different planets. Yet the power of The Force continued to link them together.
Positioned above the pendant on the Silver Cable Chain Necklace (590200) the Star Wars galaxy is portrayed with the retired Illuminating Stars (796373CZ) charm and the beautiful Starry Night Sky Murano (791662CZ). Atop the sparkling Disney x Pandora Princess Crown (791580CZ) stamps our approval that Leia is not just Princess of Alderaan, she is a true Disney Princess!
