In my post about discontinued charms for 2017 I mentioned that Pandora had not only recalled the small floating locket because it kept opening on its own, but that it wasn’t going to bring it back; well I was wrong, it is indeed back and it has been redesigned!
The small locket now has the same opening mechanism as it’s larger counterparts, as in one has to remove the chain in order for it to open where previously it opened with a small flick of a fingernail. It doesn’t open fully I have to say but the locket opens enough where one can slip a single petit charm in or out.
I unfortunately did not take any photographs of the original locket when it was still available, but here is a stock image, hopefully you can see the difference:
The original had a bail because the locket’s lid opened all the way up, here is the new version:
This is good news for all those people who missed out on the first pendant, although now I wonder if the first locket will become a rare and hard to find charm? I think I prefer the first locket over this second version as to me it looked a little more delicate in its construct.
Will you be adding this new locket to your wish list now that Christmas is in less than a week?
