REVIEW: Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm

“Straight from heaven up above, here is a baby for you to love.”

Adorable baby Dumbo is ready to soar to adventures with his large moveable ears!

Dumbo was one of the first Disney movies I saw as a child and I absolutely loved it! Although the scene when Dumbo gets tipsy and starts hallucinating crazy coloured elephants used to scare me. It still does a little. But psychedelic dancing elephant scene aside Dumbo still has a special place in my heart and the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm (797849CZ) was a definite on my Spring shopping list.

The Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm (797849CZ) has moveable ears which move independently to each other. A propeller style axis at that back of Dumbo’s head allows each ear to pivot up and down. The darker colour mechanism is just visible on the back once the ears are in the upward position.

When I initially saw the official catalog I was a little worried about the shade of blue enamel used on Dumbo’s eyes. I even thought about the possibility of removing it. Fortunately I didn’t have to attempt any high level jeweller techniques as the blue is a lot darker and more subtle in real life.

Sitting with his feet together like a funny baby buddha, Dumbo’s cute baby wrinkles furrow his forehead and legs. When looking at his tiny trunk curled upwards and his open mouth you can almost hear him giggling! The standard Pandora silver hallmark, ‘S925 ALE’ is engraved on the side of the bale and the word ‘PANDORA’ is stamped on Dumbo’s left side.

Due to his large ears, the back of the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm is relatively plain. Dumbo’s tiny tail is visible at the bottom and a cubic zirconia stone either side of the beaded bale add a little sparkle.

Style 1: Baby of Mine

Here is a baby with eyes of blue, straight from heaven, right to you.

“From your head to your toes
You’re so sweet, goodness knows
You are so precious to me
Cute as can be
Baby of mine.”

Your ma ain’t crazy. She’s just broken-hearted.

My first styling with the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm (797849CZ) is set on the Signature Pavé Barrel Bracelet (590723CZ) and takes it’s inspiration from the film’s song ‘Baby of Mine’. Mrs Jumbo was sad and lonely as she watched the other elephants welcome their babies from the storks. Her wish for a baby to love is represented with the starbursts on the Frozen Snowflake Openwork (791563CZ) and Cinderella’s Wish (791592CFL) charms with the Dumbo Pendant in the centre. Mrs Jumbo herself is depicted with the retired Elephant (791130) charm.

Baby blue tones from the Ice Drops (796361NCB) and Cinderella’s Signature Style (791640) Murano charms compliment Dumbo’s eyes. Love for a newborn baby is represented with the Pandora 2017 Club Charm (B800538) and Heart of Winter Pendant (796372CZ).

The retired Pandora Ice Drops Murano is currently available for just $38.50 on BeCharming.com.

Style 2: When I See An Elephant Fly

Crow 1: Did you ever see an elephant fly?
Crow 2: Well, I’ve seen a horse fly.
Crow 3: Ah, I’ve seen a dragon fly.
Crow 4: I’ve seen a house fly.

You know, lots of people with big ears are famous!

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can… Thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could.

Set on the classic Pandora Moments Barrel Bracelet (590702HV), my second styling with the Dumbo Pendant is based on flying creatures. Dumbo rest at the centre of the bracelet after taking his inaugural flight from the Tumbling Leaves (791205CZ). Once he soars, Dumbo feels as Light As A Feather (791186CZ) and his enormous ears give him a Heart of Freedom (791967). Now he is no longer a cadged Nightingale (791114).

Golden details highlight each dainty Dragonfly (790898) and the bees buzzing around their Bee Hive (790577). Other flying beings include the sparkling Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ), sweet Happy Little Bird (790424) and the delicate Lacewing Butterly (791256) Clips.

Style 3: Circus Parade

And now, I present to you the world’s smallest little elephant, who will spring from this springboard in one spring to the top of the pyramid, waving his little flag for the grand climax! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Dumbo!

Just visualize: One elephant climbs up on top of another elephant, until finally, all seventeen elephants have constructed an enormous pyramid of pachyderms!

Dumbo! The ninth wonder of the universe! The world’s only flying elephant!

My final styling with the Dumbo Pendant depicts a colourful circus scene set on the Pandora Mesh Bracelet (596543). Of course Dumbo takes centre stage between the pretty Multi-Colour Mosaic (797183MPR) and Green Petite Facet (791499SGQ) charms. Meanwhile the Classic Mickey Pendant (397394EN06) acts the part of Timothy Q. Mouse. Even Mickey’s bright yellow shoes evoke Dumbo’s cute little hat.

The Ferris Wheel (797199NLCMX) charm adds to the fun of the circus with dashes of colour from the shimmering Pink Petite Facet (791499PCZ) and the Golden Glitter Ball (796327EN146) charms. Flying Dumbo soars in the air while Bruno the Unicorn (797609) pretends to be a circus horse!

My verdict on the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant? It’s the ninth wonder of the universe!

Summary

The Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm receives high marks from me, only dropping a couple of points on Value and Versatility. At $65/£55 the pendant is quite pricey and although I understand that is largely because of the moveable ears I also think it would have been a little cheaper without the cubic zirconia stones which don’t add anything to the design. Of course as a pendant the Dumbo charm is relatively versatile but the it is a bit limited to Disney or fun themes. Overall it is a wonderful charm and perfect for Disney fans!

In the USA the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm (797849CZ) is $65 and available from our preferred Pandora retailer BeCharming.com.

In the UK the Pandora Disney Dumbo Pendant Charm (797849CZ) is £55 and is available from the UK Pandora eStore.

I love the bracelets you styled and the adorable Dumbo items in your pictures. Great quotes too. I don’t own any Disney Pandora pieces, but I’m in love with Dumbo. Thanks!

Hi Jesbannon,

Thanks for commenting on the blog, and thank you for your kind words. I enjoy styling the bracelets and taking the photos, I am glad you enjoyed them. Dumbo is lovely and a few have said if they get one Disney piece it would be him smile

Have a great evening

So cute . I’m not really a Disney collector, I just buy what I like and I love Dumbo so I might have to find room for him somewhere . I have Bambi and Thumper on my multi-colour bracelet and Tigger and Eeyore on my fuchsia and orange bracelet and I’ve just acquired the Mickey and Minnie clips but that’s it. I got a really good deal on those clips in the 3 for 2 as they were also half the price of what everywhere else is charging but I don’t have a bracelet for them yet they are on… Read more »
