REVIEW: Pandora Floral Bella Bot Charm

“Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels. But their magic sparkles in nature.”

Bella Bot strips off her industrial chic for floral fairy fun in this limited edition Pandora charm.

797856 Pandora Limited Edition Bella Bot Charm Spring 2019

Dressed in her delightful Spring outfit, Bella Bot is prettier than ever! Her blooming garland and fairy wings harmonise with the blossoms and butterflies of the Pandora 2019 Spring Collection. However the Pandora Floral Bella Bot (797856) charm is Limited Edition and like a warm day in England she won’t last long!

Dora Explores: Pandora Floral Bella Bot Charm

The Limited Edition Pandora Floral Bella Bot (797856) is very similar to the original Bella Bot (797141EN160) charm. Both feature moveable limbs and turn at the neck. Besides the additional width of the wings, the Floral Bella Bot is the same size as the initial Bella Bot charm. Like the Bella Bot and Bobby Bot Dog (797551EN12) charms, the Floral Bella Bot is ready to love and be loved with her big heart.

Instead of wearing a pink enamel bow like the first Bella Bot charm, the Floral Bella Bot dons a wreath made from sweet smelling blossoms. The lack of colour and enamel detailing makes the charm easier to style.

The Floral Bella Bot charm looks beautiful both front and back with her large silver wings. Fine lines mimic a charming butterfly design over the wings with subtle oxidisation. The standard Pandora hallmark, ‘S925 ALE’ is quite visible on the back of Bella’s head.

The Floral Bella Bot charm is absolutely full of detail and features a threaded core centre.

Style 1: Away with the Fairies

“I was very much provoked. Of course, I knew there are no fairies; but that needn’t prevent my thinking there is.” 

L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

“Of course you don’t believe in fairies. You’re fifteen. You think I believed in fairies at fifteen? Took me until I was at least a hundred and forty. Hundred and fifty, maybe. Anyway, he wasn’t a fairy. He was a librarian. All right?” 

Neil Gaiman

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.” 

W. B. Yeats

Bella Bot flies away with the fairies in my first styling with the Floral Bella Bot charm. This design is infused with a little Disney magic and is set on the Pandora Mickey Moments Bracelet (590731CZ). The Floral Bella Bot charm resembles a large fairy between two pixies; the Tinker Bell’s Dress (792138EN93) and Tinker Bell’s Shoe (792139EN93) pendants. Pixie dust is sprinkled on either side with the Tinker Bell Star (791920NPG) and the Illuminating Stars (796373CZ) charms. Gorgeous greens from the Tinker Bell’s Signature Colour (791639) and Wild Flower Murano (791638CZ) charms combine with the Darling Daisy Meadow Clips (791494EN12) for a natural feel.

Quite a few of the items on this design are available in the Pandora Summer sale. The Tinker Bell’s Dress is now £39 / $32.50 USD and the Tinker Bell Star is now £35 / $40 USD. Plus the Darling Daisy Meadow Clips are now $25 USD at BeCharming.com.

Style 2: Fairy Garden

“Few humans see fairies or hear their music, but many find fairy rings of dark grass, scattered with toadstools, left by their dancing feet.” 

Judy Allen
797856 Pandora Limited Edition Bella Bot Charm Spring 2019 Lion King Summer Pre Autumn new collection

“The fairies, as their custom, clapped their hands with delight over their cleverness, and they were so madly in love with the little house that they could not bear to think they had finished it.” 

 J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

“Fairies come in all shapes, colours, sizes and types, they don’t have to be fluffy. They can be demanding and furious if hey like. They do, however, have to wear a tiara. That much is compulsory.” 

Dawn French, A Tiny Bit Marvellous

My second styling with the Floral Bella Bot charm is a mixed metal look set on the Pandora Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet (580719). The Pink Bow & Lace Heart (792044ENMX) charm represents the love between the Floral Bella Bot and her sister the Pandora Rose Bella Bot (787141EN160) charm. Symmetry flows through the design with silver charms opposite their Pandora Rose counterpart. Such as the silver Open Your Heart (790964) charm and the Pandora Rose Open Your Heart (780964) charm. Or the silver Primrose Meadow (791488EN12) and the Pandora Rose Darling Daisy Meadow (780004EN12) charms. The sparkling Shining Path Clips (791972CZ) complete this glamorous styling.

Style 3: Pandora Friends Club

‘You know how sometimes, you catch the faintest hint of movement in the corner of your eye, then you blink and it’s gone? That’s them.” 

Jennifer McMahon
797856 Pandora Limited Edition Bella Bot Charm Spring 2019 Lion King Summer Pre Autumn new collection

“Fairies, black, grey, green, and white, 
You moonshine revellers, and shades of night, 
You orphan heirs of fixed destiny, 
Attend your office and your quality.” 

William Shakespeare
797856 Pandora Limited Edition Bella Bot Charm Spring 2019 Lion King Summer Pre Autumn new collection

“Fairies are just girls with glitter in their veins.” 

H.S. Crow

My final design combines the Pandora Friends with Pandora Club charms. This whimsical styling is set on the classic Moments Bracelet (590702HV) with the Pandora 2017 Club Charm (792092D) as the centrepiece. The limited edition Floral Bella Bot charm hangs out opposite her adventurous friend Cosmo Tommy (797561CZ). Other friends include adorable Bruno the Unicorn (797609) and Bobby Bot (797551EN12) who are nestled next to the 2016 Club (791912D) and 2018 Club (796602D) charms. Pretty pastel hues scatter throughout the design with the Multi-colour Mosaic (797183MPR) and Green (791499SGQ) and Pink Petite Facet (791499PCZ) charms. While the Castle & Crown (791133PCZ) and Disneyland Paris Exclusive charm illustrate the magic and fun between friends.

Cosmo Tommy is currently available in the Pandora Summer sale for £45 / $37.50 USD and the Multi-colour Mosaic is now £25 / $32.50 USD. The retired two tone Castle & Crown charm is now £48 at The Jewel Hut.

My verdict on the Pandora Floral Bella Bot Charm? It’s unbelievable!

Summary

The Floral Bella Bot charm has a stunning design and is deserving of 10/10 on wow factor. Priced at £60 / $75USD it is quite expensive, especially when you consider that it doesn’t feature any enamel or stones which normally increase pricing. However it is a large charm and great to be used as a statement piece.

In the UK the Limited Edition Pandora Floral Bella Bot Charm (797856) is £60 and is available from the UK Pandora eStore.

Pandora definitely know how to do character charms so well. I love the detailing that they put into each one and it’s so lovely to see them bringing out more.
This is a cute charm and love how you have styled it.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the comment. Yes, the character charms are really nice. They do a good job of the Disney characters and these Pandora Friends are really lovely. There are some more on the way like a Dinosaur which is really cute.

Have a great day

I’m really not into these robot charms but your stylings of them look lovely, so much more grown up than you’d ever think possible eek . I particularly like the green one arrow , it really conjurors up visions of the magical fairies at the bottom of the garden. They really do exist, my Nanna told me when I was a kid that we had to make sure that all our eggshells were properly crushed so that the fairies couldn’t use them as boats and sail away shock .

Hi Pat,

I think the Bella Bots are a lot of fun. I appreciate they are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I don’t find them to be infantile or childish as some claim. This floral one is very pretty, maybe you could get one to remind you of your Nanna wink

Have a lovely evening

That’s actually a really good idea arrow . I want to get the rainbow dangle and possibly the Murano for my dad as they played Somewhere Over The Rainbow at his funeral and rainbows keep popping up all over the place lately cry . I’ve got the makings of an idea around mystical reminders for my family hmm . I’d need an earring charm for my mum eek .

I’ve just gone for the Tinkerbell fairy star charm and the mouse on the balloon charm. The Tinkerbell one will be for Nanna as it is a fairy and she never swore, she always said ‘stars’ and was interested in astronomy, so that seems perfect for her; I’ll get the floral Bella if it ever goes in the sale or the next 3 for 2 (I’m not paying £60 for it, lol ). The mice on the balloon is for my mum. She was scared of mice and one time when I was a kid we had a mouse in… Read more »

You combine so well silver and rose gold charms in Style 2! And oooohhh, I adore the knotted hearts bracelet. Are you planning to write a review also on it?

Dora
Dora

Hi Yanina,

Thanks for your comment. The Knotted Hearts is a recent purchase and I was eager to showcase it, I absolutely love it but since it is a not a bracelet that can be styled I am unsure if I will review it.

It was my idea to include some wrist shots in reviews along with my Stackers boxes for a bit of variation and colour.

I may well do a mini review of the the Knotted Hearts in the future, stay posted

Have a great day

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
