REVIEW: Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement Charm
“To me, flowers are happiness.”
Tiny flowers cluster together forming an everlasting bouquet, perfect for your wrist!
One of the prettiest charms from the Pandora Spring 2019 collection is the colourful Classic Flower Arrangement (797907ENMX) charm. The interesting choice of enamel colours makes this charm suitable for Spring, Summer and Autumnal stylings.
Dora Explores: Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement Charm
Anemones and pansies fill the surface of the pretty Classic Flower Arrangement (797907ENMX) charm. The flowers nestle together in a deep cluster leaving no empty space.
The Classic Flower Arrangement charm is beautifully made and each bloom is individually hand painted in enamel. Silver beads decorate the centre of each flower and the petals edges are raised, creating a pleasing texture.
I wasn’t sure about the colour combination when initially saw the stock images of the Classic Flower Arrangement charm. But they have grown on me (pun intended!) and I especially like the mustard yellow which fades to white. Other colours include deep violet, dusky pink and emerald green.
It too me a little while to locate the hallmark on the Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement charm. The standard ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark is hidden on the inside of the threadless charm.
Style 1: April Showers May Flowers
“Sweet April showers, do spring May flowers.”Thomas Tusser
“I don’t desire to change anything in England except the weather.”Oscar Wilde
“English rain feels obligatory, like paperwork. It dampens already damn days and slicks the stones.”Maureen Johnson
My first styling with the Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement charm is a homage to England and it’s wonderful weather. Mary Poppin’s umbrella wasn’t only used for flying!
This colourful enamel styling is set on the Disney Sparkling Mickey Moments Bracelet (590731CZ). Jiminy Cricket (797492EN41) flies through the flowers beneath his blue umbrella. The Big Ben (791080) and Mary Poppin’s Umbrella (797507CZ) pendants hang opposite each other to create symmetry to the bracelet. Enamel details from the Butterfly Arrangement Clips (797863ENMX) and Blooming Watering Can (797873ENMX) compliment the Classic Flower Arrangement charm perfectly. The Mrs Potts & Chip (792141ENMX), Pink Fluttering Butterflies (791483EN68) and Lavender Daisy Meadow (791487EN66) charms provide a pretty scattering of pastels through the design.
Style 2: Flora & Fauna
“There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it, and fills it with noble inclinations.”Washington Irving
“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.”Henry David Thoreau
“Sometimes I like to see how close I can get to wild, woodland animals because it makes me feel like a Disney Princess.”
A wonderful woodland setting on the stunning Pandora 14k Gold Clasp Bracelet (590702HG) showcases the Classic Flower Arrangement charm. It’s green pansies perfectly match the emerald eyes of the Wise Owl (791211CZN) and the Peacock’s (791227MCZ) tail feathers. Other forest friends include Miss Hedgehog (791179) and the Happy Little Bird (790424). Golden touches run through the styling highlighting the Bird & Branches (791213CZN) and graceful Dragonfly (790898) charms.
Style 3: Rosey Posey
“My rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered.”Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
“The rose shadows said that they loved the sun, but that they also loved the dark, where their roots grew through the lightless mystery of the earth. The roses said: You do not have to choose.”Robin McKinley, Sunshine
“Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses!”James Oppenheim
Despite being quite a colourful charm, the Classic Flower Arrangement charm looks gorgeous paired with Pandora Rose as seen in my final styling. Notably the Classic Flower Arrangement charm is also part of the Pandora Rose Build A Bracelet on the Pandora UK eStore. Choose a Pandora Rose Bracelet and two items from a selection of charms and clips for just £129.
The Pandora Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719) is the ideal background for a mixed metal look. At the centre the Iridescent White Glass (787576) is flanked with the Darling Daisies Spacers (791495EN12). The matching Darling Daisy Meadow Clips (791494EN12) provide a light airy look to the bracelet. Alternating Pandora Rose with silver enamel charms, such as the Pink Bow & Lace Heart (792044ENMX) charm creates a delicate style.
My verdict on the Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement? Perfectly arranged!Dora
Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement (797907ENMX)
- Wow Factor - 8/108/10
- Value - 8/108/10
- Design - 10/1010/10
- Versatility - 10/1010/10
As shown by three very different stylings, the Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement charm is very versatile. It’s pretty design deserves 10/10 but it isn’t necessarily a feature charm so I have just given it 8/10. Priced at £45 is it a little expensive but does include a lot of enamel detail and is a nice chunky silver charm.
In the UK the Pandora Classic Flower Arrangement (797907ENMX) charm is £45 and is available from the UK Pandora eStore. It is also part of the Pandora Rose Build A Bracelet for £129 on the Pandora UK eStore.
