It was love at first sight when I first glimpsed the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ) charm Snow White’s winged companion was released in the PANDORA Autumn 2018 Collection and perfectly captures the collection’s theme ‘Regal Fairytales’.

The PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is beautifully accurate and perfectly represents the little blue bird from Disney’s 1937 adaption of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Perched on a leafy branch the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is a mixture of smooth silver with a sparkling plumage of cubic zirconia stones. Although I do not always like cubic zirconia on PANDORA charms, it is fitting on the Snow White’s Bird charm. These clear stones illustrate the little bird’s blue feathers while the shiny silver finished depicts his fluffy white chest.

The PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is a very small charm with a narrow 8.2mm width and a height of 14.5mm. However, despite its diminutive size the charm is full of detail. Delicate oxidisation highlights the woods grain and lines of veins on the leaves. Other elements include a sweet upturned tail and tuft of feathers on the birdies head.

The ‘PANDORA’ and ‘©Disney’ hallmarks are engraved on either side of the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm.

Tucked beneath the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is the standard ‘S925 ALE’ hallmark. Additionally, I was surprised to learn that the Snow White’s Bird charm has a smooth core, which combined with its petite size makes it fairly light.

Style 1: Spring Bird

My first styling with the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is full of Spring fever and provided an excellent opportunity to play with my recent purchases; Tinker Bell’s Signature Colour (791639) and the Green Looking Glass (790925) Murano charms. This fresh design is a pretty mixture of newer pieces and classic PANDORA set on the Disney Mickey Moments Bracelet (590731CZ).

The stunning Vintage Lace (791173SSG) charm with its gorgeous green spinal stone, provides an elegant centrepiece. Sweet symmetry is created with the retired Happy Little Bird (790424) charm and Snow White’s Bird perched on either side. Hiding between the Darling Daisy Meadow Clip (791494EN12) and the Wild Flowers Murano (791638CZ) are the Majestic Swan (791732CZ) Spring Bird House (797045) and Wise Owl (791211CZN) charms. Finally, the PANDORA Disney Parks Mickey Mouse Topiary charm provides the finishing touch to this Spring garden.

Style 2: I’m Wishing

“One love, that has possessed me. One love, thrilling me through. One song, my heart keeps singing. Of one love, only for you.”

My second style with the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm is inspired by the song ‘I’m Wishing’. The PANDORA Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719) provides a dreamy backdrop for this romantic look with the captivating PANDORA Rose Iridescent White Glass (787576) at the heart of the design.

Snow White’s fable is illustrated with the sparkling Snow White’s Bird charm flying in the Tumbling Leaves (791205CZ) of the enchanted forest. Her dream of finding her Prince is portrayed with Cinderella’s Pumpkin Coach(791573CZ), the Princess Crown (791580CZ) and the magnificent Crown and Castle (791133PCZ) charm. Blushing PANDORA Rose charms are interspersed throughout the bracelet while the sweet Magnolia Bloom Clips (792078PCZ) and Darling Daisies Spacers (791495EN12) supply dainty floral details.

Taking inspiration from Snow White’s enchanted forest, my third styling with the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm provided a wonderful occasion to use my newly purchased PANDORA Muirapiranga Wood (790703) beads. 

Snow White’s forest friends are scattered throughout the classic silver PANDORA Moments Bracelet (590702HV) with the Enchanted Hearts Tassel Pendant (797037) making a stunning centrepiece. Golden touches from the Tree of Life (790429), Moss (791225), He Loves Me (790541D) charms and Lazy Daisy (791014) clips resemble shafts of sunlight bursting through the forest canopy. Meanwhile Miss Hedgehog (791179), the Wise Owl (791211CZN), Bambi (796462) and Thumper (796342) graze gracefully in the quite. The Bambi (796462) and Thumper (796342) charms are currently available for £29 each in the UK PANDORA eStore outlet.

PANDORA’s wooden beads

PANDORA retired their beautiful wooden beads a few years ago. They have been on my wish list for a very long time and I was delighted to locate four of them. Hence, I fully recommend you purchase them if the opportunity presents itself. The wooden beads were produced in a variety of woods including: Coracao De Negro, Acapu, Muirapiranga, Pau Amarelo and Muiracatiara.

My verdict on the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird charm? The fairest of them all!

Summary

I am completely in love with the Snow White’s Bird charm! Although it is small it’s stunning design gives it a big wow factor. Plus despite it is a Disney charm it is incredibly versatile and will be a favourite for many PANDORA fans. The only area where the charm drops a couple of marks is in its value as the cubic zirconia stones make it quite dear for such a little charm. Overall it is a wonderful charm and I fully recommend it.

In the USA the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ) charm is $75 and available from our preferred PANDORA retailer BeCharming.com.

In the UK the PANDORA Disney Snow White’s Bird (797166CZ) charm is £60 and available from the UK PANDORA eStore.

I saw this when it first came out and thought it looked so much cuter/nicer in person. So I put it on my wish list and then I took it off and now after your review with the lovely photos it is back on! My favorite is your Spring Bird look! I do think $75 USD is a bit much but with the US sale coming up it makes it much more doable. It will go on my Disney animal charm bracelet that includes the Pooh head, Eeyore, the rabbit from Alice, Bambi and Thumper. I also plan to pick… Read more »

Hi Heather, I’m so pleased you enjoyed the review. It really is a lovely charm and although it is quite expensive for its size I use it so often that it is worth it. I am also really looking forward to the USA promotion and I don’t think it will be hard for me to reach the spend limit! I was tempted to take part in the Singapore promo but most of the items I really want are in the Spring Collection. Only a few more days to go now! Thanks for reading the review and sharing your views. Have… Read more »

I got this charm in the 3 for 2 last year which made it better value . I wear it on my blue bracelet with birds. I had been waiting for another sparkly bird to balance out this bracelet, I already had the graduate owl, the swan and the peacock so I was thrilled to see this . I also have the non-sparkly owl and the duck as well as the dove dangle and my Chinese birth year rooster dangle along with various pale blue Murano charms . I love it .

Hi Pat,
I was surprised at how many bird charms I have but I think you might have more! Although I don’t create completely symmetrical bracelets, I do like them to have a certain balance. So I try to find charms of a similar width to wear opposite the Snow White’s Bird charm. It really is a wonderful charm and it gets used a lot on my bracelet designs.
Thank you for reading the review and sharing your thoughts and have a lovely weekend,
