“Be As Unique As A Snowflake: Embrace All Your Dimensions.”
PANDORA gift sets make for perfect presents for loved ones… or a great excuse to treat yourself! The PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Gift Set includes the sparkling PANDORA Signature Bracelet (590723CZ) plus two Shining Path Clips (791972CZ) and the stunning Dazzling Snowflake Charm (796358NTB) in clear and icy blue cubic zirconia.
As well as saving money on the retail value of the bracelet, clips and charm, the PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Gift Set is presented in a free travel jewellery box. The forest green leatherette case is ideal for protecting your precious PANDORA jewellery. It is not overly large and can be safely carried in a handbag when travelling.
The PANDORA Travel Case may be compact, but there is plenty of space inside to store your PANDORA treasures. At the top, an elastic pouch can be used for bracelets or charms. A special padded ‘donut’ can be to house your favourite bracelet.
The bracelet can be secured safely in place with a leather strap. Notice the charming detail of the PANDORA logo on the rose coloured popper.
PANDORA rings and earrings can be stowed away in the padded velvet ridged section. The ribbon loop at the centre is perfect for locking necklaces into place.
The PANDORA velvet pouch with it’s silky lining provides a safe home for your PANDORA charms when they are not in use.
The dark emerald green leatherette case, oozes elegance and the PANDORA logo is embossed gracefully at the top of the case.
The rose gold coloured zip and clip looks gorgeous against the green! I love the details of the heart shaped zip with the PANDORA logo and the holly leaves on wristlet.
The PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Charm (796358NTB) lives up to its name and the twilight blue crystal gleams impressively. The cut facets of the crystal create a brilliant multi-dimensional splendour.
Clear cubic zirconia stones surround the edge of the PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Charm and a glimmering snowflake design sits slighted elevated above the blue crystal.
The Dazzling Snowflake Charm is actually quite spherical, despite being a ‘button’ style charm. The combination of the cubic zirconia stones on the side and snowflake, generate a dazzling display from every angle.
The PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Charm is an openwork charm, which allows the light to shine through beautifully. The usual PANDORA hallmarks, ‘S925 ALE’, are tucked away at the side of the opening.
The PANDORA Winter 2017 collection is full of wonderful vibrant gemstone colours. The blue of the Dazzling Snowflake crystal echoes a shining cerulean sapphire.
Like the PANDORA Radiant Heart charms, the Dazzling Snowflake Charm has a hidden image at it’s centre. A silver snowflake pattern glows beneath the lustrous crystal.
For my first design I used the entire PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Gift Set with a celestial collection of charms. The Shining Path Clips (791972CZ) glimmering beautifully alongside the retired Fascinating Stardust (791628) and Starry Night Sky (791662cz) murano charm from the PANDORA Winter 2016 collection. The PANDORA Disney Frozen Snowflake Charm (791563cz) fits in wonderfully with this Snowy Winter Night theme. The shining PANDORA Signature Bracelet (590723CZ) completes the look.
For a refined, stately look, I choose a simple design using the wonderful PANDORA Mesh Bracelet (596543). I love using the Mesh Bracelet when I feel like wearing something lighter. Personally I prefer to go ‘clipless’ with the Mesh Bracelet and have the movement of a few charms around the bracelet. The blue crystal of the Dazzling Snowflake Charm is fabulously vivid against the glistening Mesh Bracelet and the openwork Galaxy (791388cz) charms provide a delicate airiness.
The PANDORA Dazzling Snowflake Charm is a splendid focal point for a bracelet design. In this styling, I used the PANDORA Open Bracelet (596477) and placed the two silver stoppers between the Dazzling Snowflake Charm and two Fascinating Stardust Murano Charms. The deep midnight blue of the Stardust Murano charms emphasises the cobalt blue of the Dazzling Snowflake crystal.
For a sumptuous, regal look I paired the Dazzling Snowflake charm with the new Wintry Delight (796357EN63) and Royal Blue Crystal Galaxy (796361NCB) charms, on the PANDORA Rose Smooth Bracelet (580728). I absolutely adore the fusion of royal blue and rose gold and I think it would be a glamorous option for the party season!
Snow, snow, snow is the theme of my final design! The subtle icy blue from the Crystallised Snowflake Clips (791997NMB) compliments the Dazzling Snowflake charm magnificently. This design plays with understated contrasts, with the smooth silver of the clips with the texture of the Mesh Bracelet and the inverted and raised snowflake patterns.
