Today I’m reviewing the new Pink Pavé Heart charm from the upcoming Mother’s Day 2014 collection. I already posted my thoughts on the matching limited edition pavé bangle but, with the Mother’s Day 2014 collection debuting in two days, I thought it was worth showcasing the beautiful charm that matches the bangle.
This is my first charm from the Pavé Heart range, which was first released with the Valentine’s Day 2013 collection. Also available are clear, black and red (although in person more of a hot pink) versions of the charm.
Like all of Pandora’s pavé charms, the Pink Pavé heart is an openwork, meaning that it does not thread on to the bracelet.
This charm is supposed to be a light pink, but in person it’s more of a light lilac colour – a very, very pretty lilac colour, but not pink nonetheless. I would also say that the heart shape of this charm is not that clearly defined. It’s quite tall and the curves of the heart at the top are a little vague. I imagine that the pavé settings are hard to shape.
For comparison, I’ve taken a shot of it alongside the original Pink Pavé Lights charm. As you can see, the Pavé Lights is more of a true pink.
The new pavé heart looks really pretty with other white charms, creating a delicate, soft aesthetic. However, I can be something of a girly girl, and I’ll admit that I often love pink designs. Consequently, I added the delightful Cherry Blossom murano to add a little pop of pink.
The lilac tones in the Pavé Heart also bring out the purple hues in the Butterfly Kisses murano very nicely.
The way I’m wearing it for now, however, is with the matching Circle of Love bangle. The clasp matches the pavé heart exactly in shade. I’m not sure whether I want to add anything else to it – I’m actually really enjoying the lightness of the bangle with only one charm.
This charm is a gorgeous shade, and it makes a nice, subtler complement to the other colours in the Pavé Heart range, which are much more bold in tone. It’s been one of my favourites from the Spring releases in its own right – understandably, however, it has been somewhat overshadowed by the matching Circle of Love bangle.
However, if you’re not a fan of the heart motif, you can also buy a version of the spherical Pavé Lights series in the same pink shade – this was released with the Spring 2014 collection:
The Pink Pavé Heart is currently available in the UK as part of a gift set with the Circle of Love bangle for £99. It will retail in the US for $65.
Are you excited for the upcoming release of the Mother’s Day collection? Will this charm be going on your wish list?
