REVIEW: PANDORA Enchanted Garden Murano Charm

“There is a garden in every childhood, An enchanted place where colors are brighter, The air is softer, And the morning more fragrant than ever before.”

 

Walk into Paradise with this delightful garden in miniature, with its pretty pastel flowers and buzzing bees.

Enchanted was one of the main themes from the recent PANDORA 2018 Spring release. As a fairytale fan I love the ‘Enchanted’ concept and most of my Spring must-have pieces were from the Enchanted collection.

 

In the last few years PANDORA have improved in the amount of detail in their Murano charms but now it appears that they have taken it to the next level! The intricate scene and workmanship in the PANDORA Enchanted Garden Murano Charm (797014) is incredibly impressive. The Enchanted Garden Murano Charm truly is a key piece from the PANDORA Spring collection and my new favourite Murano.

The sweet bumble bees from the initial PANDORA Shine range buzzed their way into the Spring collection and the Enchanted Garden Murano features two of them on either side. The bees bright yellow stripes really draw the eye and its tiny wings are so fine they are almost see through.

The combination of colours used in the Enchanted Garden Murano are perfect for Spring and Summer. A pale lavender colour sits at the core of the charm with fresh apple green leaves and candy floss pink petals layered above. A black and cream twist of ribbon threads throughout the design like a garden vine.

Petite flecks of glitter are scattered around the Enchanted Garden glass which provide additional interest to this engaging charm. The glimmer and flash from the iridescent sparkles suggest that it really is an enchanting garden and something magical is about to happen.

The Enchanted Garden Murano Charm has a threaded silver core which is plain on one side. The other side is stamped with the usual PANDORA hallmarks; ‘S925 ALE’ and ‘PANDORA’.

 

Unfortunately more and more counterfeits are around these days so it is always best to buy PANDORA jewellery direct from an authorised PANDORA retailer to avoid disappointment.

 

 

 

Styling 1: The Secret Garden

My first styling has a fresh, fragrant Spring breeze blowing over it, with pale pinks and light shades of green. Titled ‘The Secret Garden’, the buzzing bees, Vintage Butterfly Pendant (791255CZ), Spring Bird House (797045) and Miss Hedgehog (791179) all hide amongst the trees, watching and waiting for the garden’s secret to unfurl. The pretty pink enamel of the Magnolia Bloom Clips (792078PCZ) subtly highlight the pink pastel glass inside the Enchanted Garden Murano.

 

 

 

 

 

A bee sat on my nose. Then what do you think? He gave me a wink. And said 'I beg your pardon. I thought you were the garden!'

 

 

 

 

Styling 2: Picking Daisies

In my second styling, ‘Picking Daisies’, the warm PANDORA Rose Smooth Bracelet (580728) glows beautifully against the lilac and pink pastels of the Enchanted Garden Murano. The PANDORA Rose Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) is clean and fresh with its sweet white enamel daises and the PANDORA Rose Pink Shimmer Murano (781650) enhances the blooms inside the Enchanted Garden Murano charm. For more style inspiration with the PANDORA Rose Pink Shimmer Murano you can read our review here.

 

The soft, blush from the PANDORA Rose charms resembles the golden light as evening turns to night. Imagine sitting at a relaxed garden party, the tinkle of glasses interspersed with the happy sound of friends laughing fills the air while you playfully pick daisies. He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me…

 

 

 

A garden isn't meant to be useful. It's for joy.

 

 

 

 

Styling 3: Flutter by Butterfly

My third styling, Flutter by Butterfly, features some old school PANDORA, including the Butterfly Garden Openwork (790895), Openwork Heart Charm (790964) and the retired Purple Smooth Leather Triple Wrap Bracelet (590714CPE-T). The Enchanted Garden Murano sits prettily at the centre and the Pink (791665) and Purple Field of Flowers Murano (791667) charms compliment its pastel shades perfectly! 

 

If you haven’t yet bought the gorgeous Purple Field of Flowers Murano, you’ll be happy to hear it is currently in the PANDORA sale for £19 at PANDORA UK eStore.

 

 

 

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in - what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.

 

 

 

 

Styling 4: Tink’s Bouquet

Of course it wouldn’t be an Enchanted Garden without a cute little fairy! In my final design titled ‘Tink’s Bouquet’, our favourite fairy dances around the flowers, leaving pixie dust wherever she goes! The adorable PANDORA Disney Tinker Bell’s Dress Pendant Charm (792138EN93) flutters between the blooming Wild Flower (791638cz) and Enchanted Garden Murano charms on the graceful Moments Silver Mesh Bracelet (596543). The retired Pink Fluttering Butterflies (791483EN68) and Daisy Meadow (791487EN66) charms with their soft baby pink and lavender enamel finish make this a crisp and beautiful design for Spring.

 

 

 

 

The butterflies reminded her of the fairies she'd loved as a child and, when she was older, of the fairies dancing through the magical garden

My verdict on the PANDORA Enchanted Garden Murano Charm? It's put a spell on me!

Summary

Although I absolutely adore this Murano and have given it 10/10 for the design, the wow factor is a little lower as it isn’t a statement piece. It is reasonably priced as it doesn’t feature any extra details such as cubic zirconia stones. I have also given it 10/10 as its beautiful combination of pastel shades will ensure it suits many design options.

Hi Patricia,

Hi Priscilla,
It really is a stunning Murano charm! The lilac glass will look lovely with your pink garden bracelet too. The pink will highlight the little pale pink flowers beautifully.
Do you keep your bracelet designs fixed or mix them around?
Thank you for commenting and enjoy your day!
