REVIEW: Pandora Butterfly Arrangement Clip

“Happiness is like a butterfly, it comes and rests quietly on your shoulder when you least expect it.”

Tiny butterflies dance in a colourful ballet in this dainty enamel Clip.

Beautiful butterflies filled the recent Pandora Spring 2019 Collection in various forms. From delicate lacewing earrings to sparkling pavé charms. The Butterfly Glass Murano (797893) filled with hand finished butterflies and the colourful Butterfly Arrangement Clips (797863ENMX) are my favourites from the collection.

The Pandora Butterfly Arrangement Clips (797863ENMX) are quite narrow and measure 8mm wide. Tiny butterflies flutter off the sides of the pretty clip creating a wonderful feeling of movement. Silver beading provides additional detail either sides of the clip.

Hidden discreetly on the inside of the Butterfly Arrangement Clip is the regular Pandora hallmark, ‘S925 ALE’.

Each of the teeny butterflies on the Butterfly Arrangement Clip is finished with hand painted enamel in deep blue, pastel pink and forest green. The blue and pink shades are both solid colours. While the green enamel graduates from a dark green at the centre to a bright emerald and finally into white.

Style 1: Vintage Butterfly

“I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days – three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.”

“Well, I must endure the presence of a few caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies.”

“Butterflies are self propelled flowers.” 

Robert A. Heinlein

My first styling with the Butterfly Arrangement Clips is named after the Vintage Butterfly Pendant (791255CZ). The dark Oxidised Moments Bracelet (590702OX) provides a gothic touch to this glamorous style. Combined with the stunning Fascinating Blush Pink Crystal (791729NBP) charms this vintage inspired design is filled with elegance. The retired Pink Butterfly Kisses Murano (791621) charms beautifully compliment the soft pink enamel on the Butterfly Arrangement Clip. Subtle golden details dapple throughout the styling with the Bird & Branches (791213CZN), Evening Floral (791373) and Dragonfly (790898) two tone charms.

Style 2: Spring Takes Flight

“Hundreds of butterflies flitted in and out of sight like short-lived punctuation marks in a stream of consciousness without beginning or end.” 

Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

“A fallen blossom
returning to the bough, I thought —
But no, a butterfly.”

“A power of Butterfly must be –
The Aptitude to fly
Meadows of Majesty concedes
And easy Sweeps of Sky.” 

Emily Dickinson

My second styling with the Butterfly Arrangement Clip is inspired by the Pandora 2014 ‘Spring Takes Flight’ Collection. The collection included both the splendid Sparkling Butterfly (791257ACZ) and Blue Butterfly Kisses Murano (791622) charms featured in this design. The Pandora Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719) and Open Your Heart (780964) and Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) charms bring this style up to date with a modern mixed metal look. Fluttering butterflies take flight alongside Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ) and the Dreamy Dragonfly (797025CZ) charms.

The Pandora Rose Darling Daisy Meadow charm is currently available for just $49 USD on BeCharming.com.

Style 3: Fairy Garden

Just living is not enough, said the butterfly fairy, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.

Hans Christian Andersen

Take the fair face of woman, and gently suspending, with butterflies, flowers, and jewels attending, thus your fairy is made of most beautiful things.

“Butterflies and zebras 
And moonbeams and fairy tales 
That’s all she ever thinks about 
Riding with the wind.”

Jimi Hendrix

My final design with the Butterfly Arrangement Clip includes a little pixie dust! The Pandora Mickey Bracelet (590731CZ) provides the perfect Disney backdrop for a magical trio of pendants; Tinker Bell’s Dress (792138EN93), Tinker Bell’s Shoe (792139EN93) and the Disney Parks Peter Pan charm. The wonder of Neverland is created with the Wildflowers (791638CZ) and Tinker Bell Signature Colour (791639) Murano charms. Hidden amongst the flowers the Disney Parks Mickey Mouse Topiary charm completes this design in true Disney style!

The Pandora Disney Parks Mickey Mouse Topiary charm is currently available for the special price of $52.50 USD on ShopDisney.com

My verdict on the Pandora Butterfly Arrangement Clip? Perfectly arranged!

Summary

The Butterfly Arrangement Clips nearly receive full marks from me! I have given them 8/10 for wow factor as they are not especially wowing. This doesn’t bother me as I personally don’t think clips should be overbearing and I like them to blend with the bracelet. The beautiful design fully deserves 10/10 and with the enamel detail I believe they are reasonably priced. Interestingly I wasn’t too sure of the colour combination of the enamel butterflies but I think it is what makes them so versatile as shown in my three styles.

In the USA the Pandora Butterfly Arrangement Clip (797863ENMX) is $40 and available from our preferred Pandora retailer BeCharming.com.

In the UK the Pandora Butterfly Arrangement Clip (797863ENMX) is £30 and is available from the UK Pandora eStore.

Hi Dora, thank you so much for doing a clips review. I think clips can be an underrated element of any pandora collection, but I love it that you have two of them for symmetry – I always do the same.

These butterfly clips are stunning and I will definitely add them to my wishlist.

Hi Orla,
Thank you for your kind comment. Yes I do like to match my clips. I don’t have double of many charms but I try to create a symmetrical feel by using similar shaped charms opposite each other.
Thanks for commenting and have a wonderful day!

Hi Dora, thank you for a great review. You have done a fabulous job as always. When visiting my local Pandora store this weekend, I’ve been told that there is a promotion coming next week in the UK (02/05) – 3 for 2 on charms. I thought I’d share it with fellow Pandora addicts. Have a lovely day!

Hi Magdalena,
Thanks for your sweet comment! I am glad you enjoyed the review. The UK 3 for 2 promo starts today and I have posted about it here – https://theartofpandora.com/pandora-uk-3-for-2-2/
Maybe the sales assistant got confused with another offer. A free bangle offer starts on May 2nd in the USA, Canada and Europe, so maybe the UK will be getting that one too! I hope so although I haven’t heard anything yet.
Thanks for commenting and enjoy your day!
