Today’s post brings a review of the gorgeous Complete my Heart pendant, one of Pandora’s Asian-exclusive charms for Mother’s Day 2015. This is one of the charms that I was most excited for from the collection, as the cute puzzle piece design makes it stand out as something a little different from the rest of the release. :D In this review I’ll be offering some close-up shots of the pendant, alongside some ideas as to how you might style it!
This charm is one of three Asian-exclusive charms released with the Pandora Mother’s Day 2015 collection. Unfortunately retailers are not allowed to ship outside of their geographical region, so you will have to find a friend in Asia to ship this one to you if you’d like one! :)
Since Pandora seem fairly committed to producing as many heart-themed charms as possible, it’s great to see when they go for a more original twist on the motif; I love the puzzle-piece idea. It’s also a great option for those wanting a charm to represent autism.
In person, it’s just as lovely. I absolutely love the detail of the cut-out puzzle piece, while the pink enamel is a very delicate, cool shade. The combination of the silver and the light pink enamel give it a pretty, shiny look to it in person too!
The back of the charm is plain silver, with ‘You complete my heart’ engraved upon it. I’m not always a fan of Pandora’s habit in recent years of adding their own script to charms; however, in this instance, I think it serves its purpose in highlighting the meaning behind the charm’s design. It’s a pretty sentiment! It’s a shame about the obvious hallmark-ing right under the message, however.
If you’re looking to match this pendant to the existing pinks in your collection, here’s a comparison shot of the Complete my Heart pendant alongside the existing Cherry Blossom pendant. They feature different enamels; the Cherry Blossom pendant is a warmer pink (its item code is EN40), while the Complete my Heart is more bubblegum and cooler in tone (its item code is EN68).
I love its casual look stacked on my silver leather bracelet, which is how I’m currently wearing my pendant. <3 I would have loved to have put together a leather bracelet design featuring all of the Asia exclusive charms (the pendant, the pear and the lavender butterflies), but the conversion rate for the Green Pavé pear made it super expensive. :(
Here I have styled it with the adorable new Precious Boy and Girl charms, also from the new Mother’s Day collection. Whether you’re using them to represent your children, or you and your OH, they undoubtedly fit with the pendant’s heart motif! The pendant also looks beautiful with the retired rhodolite pieces.
Pink and two-tone always makes such a warm, pretty contrast – the Complete my Heart pendant is no exception to the rule!
While the charm in itself is not particularly representative of Asia in any way, it is currently an Asian-exclusive piece and so I thought I’d put together a little design with my Chinese and Japanese dolls to highlight that. ^^ I actually really like it in combination with the bright red enamel.
I’m also toying with the idea of adding it to my pink oxidised bracelet, but I’m not sure that the pendant doesn’t get a little lost among a full bracelet. It sits very close to the chain and has a tendency to get a bit swallowed by other charms. But the colour looks great and I love the contrast between the pastel pink and the darker chain and charms. <3
This is an absolutely beautiful piece, and it would have been top of my wish list for the Mother’s Day 2015 release even if it had been part of the regular collection. <3 I’m a little baffled as to why Pandora has selected it to be an Asian exclusive, as it undoubtedly is one of the nicest charm of the collection and it has immense universal appeal – particularly to those who wish to use it to represent autism. I wonder if we will see it appear in other countries in the future.
The Complete my Heart is an Asian exclusive piece, but the conversion rates work out very reasonably! :) It’s priced at $53 SGD, which works out at about £26 or $40 USD.
Are you a fan of this design? If so, have you managed to get hold of one?
