REVIEW: PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm
“Now off you go… for you shall go to the ball.”
The incredible PANDORA Disney Cinderella Pumpkin Coach (791573CZ) is The Dream Charm! PANDORA succeeded in combining an intricate design, wonderful oxidisation and sparkling gems for added panache. The delicate 14K gold crown on the roof of the carriage is literally the crowning glory!
But the thing-a-ma-bob that does the job is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.
The PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is in keeping with the 1950’s version of Disney’s Cinderella. The overall structure of the coach along with the swirling wheels is especially accurate. One tiny difference is that the Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm features a small heart on the door rather than the letter ‘C’.
As with the original 1950’s Disney pumpkin coach, the front of the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is the smaller wheel with the whirling vines. The cubic zirconia filled panels which run down the charm resemble the lines of the pumpkin whilst the shining golden crown at the top of the coach has the appearance of the pumpkins stalk.
Tweetable: Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is quite spectacular from every angle! The view of the Coach from above displays four cut-out hearts which form a four leaf clover design. As one PANDORA slogan states; Beauty is in the details!
There are more hearts hiding underneath the carriage of the Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm. The same four leaf clover design is echoed here as well although only two of the four hearts are visible.
The standard PANDORA hallmarks ‘ALE’ and ‘S925’ are tucked at the bottom of one of the openings of the Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm.
The normal ‘PANDORA’ hallmark is placed at the top above the ‘ALE’ and ‘S925’ stamps on the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm.
The Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is an openwork charm and feels very delicate. The ‘Disney’ hallmark and copyright logo are on the opposite side to the PANDORA hallmarks.
My first design with PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is a mini theme called ‘A Night to Remember’ on the PANDORA Open Bangle (596477). The PANDORA Disney Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm (791818MOP) and Celestial Mosaic Charm (796400MMB) embrace the Pumpkin Coach Charm. The soft, glowing beauty from the mother-of-pearl insets depicts the warm love the Fairy Godmother feels for Cinderella as she sends her off for a magic night to remember.
The Celestial Mosaic Charm was one of my favourites from the PANDORA Winter 2017 Collection but unfortunately wasn’t for sale in much of Europe and the UK. It really is a beautiful charm with an exquisite mother of pearl design set in midnight black enamel. You can read our review of the PANDORA Celestial Mosaic Charm here. It is currently available online at BeCharming.com for $65 USD.
My second design, ‘The Magic of Love’ combines sumptuous PANDORA Rose with shining silver charms on the Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet (580728). The PANDORA Rose Intertwining Radiance Charm (781968PCZ) with its faceted pink stone, the PANDORA Rose Pink Shimmer (781650) and the Pink Glitter Murano (791670) charms encircle the Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm. The theme of love is highlighted with the PANDORA Rose Two Hearts Spacer Charms (786559CZR) and the Heart of Winter (791996CZ) Charm. A dusting of magical love is provided with the Limited Edition PANDORA Disney Mickey & Minnie Love Icon Charm (796463CZ).
The sweet Limited Edition PANDORA Disney Mickey & Minnie Love Icon Charm features a gorgeous two tone Mickey and Minnie silhouettes and is perfect for PANDORA Disney collectors. It quickly sold out after its release with the Winter 2017 Collection but is still available online at the UK PANDORA eStore. You can more stylings in our review here.
My third design with the Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm is a delightfully dazzling affair called ‘Midnight Magic’ and is set on the sparkling PANDORA Signature Pavé Clasp Bracelet (590723CZ). As time passes round a clock so the Ice Drops Murano (796365CZB) and Starry Night Sky Murano (791662CZ) charms on the bracelet mimic day to night. Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach Charm sits at the centre, moving along on its journey before the spell is broken and it turns back into a lowly pumpkin. Cinderella’s dream is represented with the serene PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish (791592CFL) charm and the magic of the fairy godmother’s spell is illustrated with the star burst on the Frozen Snowflake Openwork Charm (791563CZ).

At the last stroke of midnight, the spell will be broken.
As the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach charm includes a golden crown I decided to create a two tone theme called ‘Golden Memories’ which displays many of my favourite PANDORA charms. Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach is snugly positioned amongst my most treasured PANDORA charms; the classic PANDORA Dragonflies (790898) and the Russian exclusive Fairytale Fish charm (792014CCZ).
The Fairytale Fish charm is not quite as exclusive as it once was as it is now available in Poland and you can buy online at the PANDORA Poland eStore. I originally caught my little Fairytale Fish charm from Russia and you can read my review here.
My final styling is a mishmash of Disney fun on the PANDORA Disney Mickey Bracelet (590731CZ). Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach charm sits centre stage amidst dashes of blue, green and pink provided by the adorable PANDORA Disney Tinker Bell’s Dress (792138EN93), Piglet (792134EN117) and Dumbo dangle charms. The Dumbo, Disney Parks Carousel and Alice charms are all part of the PANDORA Disney Parks Fantasyland Gift Set. The gift set was released as part of the PANDORA Disney Parks Spring 2017 collection and sold out very quickly. The good news is that it is back in stock again, but this time as separate charms. They are available on ShopDisney.com.

My verdict on the PANDORA Disney Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach Charm? Magic!
PANDORA Disney Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach Charm
- Wow Factor - 10/1010/10
- Value - 9/109/10
- Design - 10/1010/10
- Versatility - 9/109/10
Not necessarily the most versatile charm as it falls very much in the Disney themed bracelet category, but beautiful as a standalone piece nontheless. The design is intricate and thoughtful right down to the heart on the door. At $100 dollars in the US market value will be in the eye of the beholder, but for simple WOW factor this is simply Magic!
