REVIEW: PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm
“A dream is a wish your heart makes…”
Live out your fairytale with this spectacular charm inspired by the Disney Cinderella story.
PANDORA fans in Europe and the UK were delighted last Autumn when the PANDORA Disney collection was finally released. Tweetable: Despite the fact that many #PANDORA fans are ‘grown ups’, we are all young at heart and still dream of fairytales!
As a Disney lover, the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm (791592CFL) was high on my wish list along with the spectacular PANDORA Disney Cinderella Pumpkin Coach (791573CZ) Review here. The Cinderella’s Wish Charm is wonderfully captivating with it’s enchanting snowflake design and mesmurising, shimmering centre.
The PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm is a similar design to the Inner Radiance Charm which is available in PANDORA Rose (781370CZ) and stunning PANDORA 14 K Gold (750838CZ). The Cinderella’s Wish Charm is distinct with its striking cerulean blue zirconia stone at its heart.
As with all of the PANDORA Disney range charms, the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm is engraved with the ‘© Disney’ hallmark on one side.
The Cinderella’s Wish Charm is a wonderful example of PANDORA’s craftsmanship, with its intricate pattern created with 60 bead-set clear cubic zirconia stones and 3 cubic zirconia stones in beautiful Cinderella blue.
When I saw the Cinderella’s Wish Charm in real life, I was thrilled to discover that the stone’s composition on the charm enables one of the three light blue stones to always be visible. It truly is an eye-catching charm that is breathtaking from every angle.
The standard PANDORA hallmarks, ‘S925 ALE’ and ‘PANDORA’ are engraved around one side of the Cinderella’s Wish Charm.
The PANDORA Cinderella’s Wish Charm is an openwork charm which allows light to pass through the gem stones, causing them to sparkle and shine wonderfully! It also means that the charm could be worn with the PANDORA Compose Earring Hooks (290677CZ) and Barrels (291002) which would look magnificent and be perfect for a special occasion.
For my first styling with the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm I created a ‘True Blue Love Story’ theme using the sweet PANDORA Disney Moments Mickey Bracelet (590731CZ) with its cute little Mickey Mouse icons. The snowflake shape of the Cinderella’s Wish Charm is echoed beautifully with the Crystallised Snowflake Clips (791997nmb) and Frosted Heart Charm (791996CZ). The dazzling blue stones in the Cinderella’s Wish Charm are set off superbly by the Ice Drops Murano Charm (796365CZB) and complimented by the deep blue Starry Night Sky Murano (791662CZ), Blue Dazzling Snowflake (796358NTB) and Royal Blue Galaxy (796361NCB) charms.
I love to use my PANDORA bracelets to tell a story and in this design, the charms on the left represent the magic of the fairy godmother with Cinderella’s wish at the centre of the story. The light and dark blue Murano charms show daytime turning to nighttime, then midnight reaches and Cinderella rushes off in the pumpkin coach!
The elegant PANDORA Mesh Bracelet (596543) is ideal for simple, lightweight bracelet designs and is so quick and easy to thread! My second styling is a mini Disney theme with the Cinderella’s Wish Charm and the Frozen Snowflake Openwork Charm (791563CZ) either side of the glistening PANDORA Disney Cinderella Pumpkin Coach (791573CZ). This design would be charming for a night out or look fun worn in a stack.
Regular readers will know how I enjoy to mix metals in my bracelet designs and I really had fun creating the ‘You’re My Happily Ever After’ theme with the PANDORA Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719). I adore how the PANDORA Rose accentuates the Cinderella’s Wish Charm and really make the blue cubic zirconia stones pop! The sparkling Shining Path Clips (791972CZ) provide delicate symmetry whilst the Rose Golden Glitter Ball (796327EN145) blends beautifully with the PANDORA Rose charms. The PANDORA Rose Two Hearts Spacers (786559CZR) illustrate the union of true love with their endearing message ‘You & Me’ engraved on the side.
The PANDORA Moments Open Bangle (596477) is my go-to bracelet and it is great for creating mini themes such as this ‘Heart’s Wish’ design. The soft simplicity of the Silvery Glitter Ball (796327EN144) and the elegant Disney Pearlescent Mickey Silhouettes Charm (791818MOP) act as supporting actors to the magical Cinderella’s Wish Charm. This stylish design is a discreet way to show your love for Disney!
My final design with the PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Wish Charm highlights how versatile it is. It looks fabulous worn on both bracelets and necklaces. The Heart of Winter Pendant Charm (796372CZ) reflects the snowflake burst of the Cinderella’s Wish Charm and the Illuminating Stars Charm (796373CZ) add the suggestion of the Fairy Godmother’s spells at work!
My verdict on the PANDORA Disney Cinderella's Wish Charm? A wish come true!
