REVIEW: PANDORA Colour Ferris Wheel Charm

“Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels…”

 

Recall dusk at the fair, the smell of popcorn in the air and twinkling colourful carriages on the Ferris wheel.

One of the most interesting charms from the PANDORA Summers 2018 Collection is the fun PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm (797199NLCMX). For me, one of the joys of summertime are the long hazy days and having more time to spend laughing and enjoying with friends. I have fond memories of warm summer evenings filled with dizzy bright lights and thrilling fairground rides whenever the fair came to town. The sweet PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm is the perfect symbol for Summer fun!

 

 

Dora Explores: PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm

My first impression of the PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm was noticing it’s impressive stature. Not only is it physically larger than most charms, it fills more space with its vibrant spirit. Plus, unlike most PANDORA charms which are spherical, the Ferris Wheel Charm design includes a stand that makes the charm feel larger than it actually is. One side of the Ferris Wheel Charm has the PANDORA logo engraved in a circular design on the outside of the wheel’s spokes.

Each of the Ferris Wheels’ carriages are represented with sparkling stones in a variety of colours, including two lilac crystals, four orchid pink crystal, two green crystals, two fancy golden coloured cubic zirconia and four aqua blue crystals. A small opening at the centre of each ‘carriage’ allows light to shine through the crystals creating added brilliance. A beaded silver design decorates the back of the PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm.

A side view of the Ferris Wheel Charm shows it’s large scale and barrel like shape. As with quite a few of the newer PANDORA charms, the Ferris Wheel Charm is incredibly shiny and doesn’t have have much oxidisation. Although, the space between each of the wheel’s spokes has been oxidised which adds depth to the charm.

The standard PANDORA hallmarks, ‘S925 ALE’, are placed discreetly underneath the Ferris Wheel Charm. Remember, life is too short to buy fake PANDORA and rather than face disappointment it is best to purchase PANDORA from authorised retailers such as BeCharming.

My first design with the PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm is theme park inspired, ready for my trip to Walt Disney World later this month. Using the PANDORA Disney Mickey Bracelet (590731CZ) as a magical backdrop, I created a fun filled design with the adorable Flying Dumbo Dangle Charm at the centre. The two tone PANDORA Disney Parks Carousel and Ferris Wheel Charms sit either side of the Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes (791818MOP) charm and the delicious Multi-Coloured Mosaic Charm (797183MPR) creating an mini theme park island. Spinning teacups are represented with the dizzy Disney Parks Alice in a Teacup charm and its pretty pink enamel decoration is emphasised with the glittering rose of Aurora’s Signature Colour Murano (791658). Taking place of a swan shaped pedalo is the glorious Majestic Swan (791732CZ) charm which lends a drop of elegance to this animated styling.

The lustrous PANDORA Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm was my first PANDORA Disney Charm and unfortunately is now retired. However the good news is that you can purchase it for just £35 on the PANDORA UK Outlet or $45.50 on BeCharming.com. With its’ soft luxurious beauty this charm is incredibly versatile and the shimmering mother of pearl Mickey icons are perfect for a subtle touch of Disney!

This splendid star filled design is dedicated to the charming Jahndra at MyXpressions blog, who has some stunning star themed bracelets. Check out her blog for the latest list of retired PANDORA jewellery.

 

The second styling of the PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm highlights how carnivals and fun fairs are often associated with bright twinkling lights at nighttime. With its’ shimmering multi-coloured carriages, the Ferris Wheel Charm makes a statement in the central position. Surrounding it are the metallic Silvery Glitter Ball (796327EN144) and the sublime Celestial Mosaic (796400MMB) charms. One of my favourite Murano charms, the retired Fascinating Adventurescent Stardust Murano Charm (791628) is perfect for magical luminary themes. I can’t recommend these magnificent Murano charms enough and if the opportunity ever arrises to purchase them, do it! 

 

Touches of midnight blue continue throughout the bracelet with the heavenly Royal Blue Galaxy (796361NCB) and the chillingly beautiful Wintry Delight (796357EN63) and Dazzling Snowflake (796358NTB) charms. Celestial wonderment is presented with the sweet Illuminating Stars (796373CZ), majestic Night Sky (791371CZ) and the long retired two tone Starburst (790188cz) charms.

 

The Illuminating Stars button charm is ideal for Disney bracelet designs as well as star themes and it is currently available for just £19 on PANDORA UK.

My final styling of the PANDORA Ferris Wheel Charm uses the pretty Mesh Bracelet (596543) to tell a story of two BFF’s having fun at the fair! Hopefully PANDORA will produce a handsome boyfriend for Bella Bot (797141EN160) in the future, but for now the adorable PANDORA Rose Bella Bot (787141EN160) keeps her company. The lovely pastels of the Pink (791499PCZ) and Green Petite Facet (791499SGQ) charms combined with the gorgeous Multi-Coloured Mosaic (797183MPR) charm, create a look that is as sweet as the fun fairs candy floss!

Summary

The creative PANDORA Ferris Wheel charm is a very near 10/10 for me! With its’ unique design and large size it definitely possesses wow factor. Plus considering the size and crystals it is good value too. The only area that it dropped on points is versatility. I found that its shape made it harder to place against certain charms, although smaller round charms nestle beautiful either side of it. All in all though this is a fantastic and original charm!

Your photos and review are so stunning as usual Dora! I was going to wait for a better sale here in the Us but your photos are so decadent and tempting. I am most definitely intrigued by the Ferris wheel and the nostalgia it conjures. I adore the way you paired it with the silver glitter ball and darker blues. Inspired!

Dora

Hi Tanya,
Thank you for your lovely words! I’m so happy you enjoyed the review. I was really happy with how well the Ferris Wheel looks with the midnight blues. It seems more magical than the brightly coloured designs too. I love that PANDORA jewellery allows you to mix and match to suit the occasion or your mood.
Thanks for reading and commenting and have a wonderful day!
Dora 💙

Can’t wait to start my fair themed bracelet with Bruno as stuffed animal I won at the game booth and the colorful mosaic as my cotton candy

Dora

Hi Margaret,
I love your idea for Bruno! There are some other charms due to be released which would look fun on your fair themed bracelet. A fun little astronaut called Cosmo Tommy and Bella Bot has a new dog called Bobby Bot! Maybe you could have Tommy, Bella and Bobby go to the fair together!
Thank you for reading and sharing your bracelet ideas and have a lovely day!
