REVIEW: Pandora Openwork Daisy Flower Charm
“Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest of flowers?”
Pick a beautiful bouquet of flowers to make a delightful daisy chain!
One of my favourite charms from the Pandora Spring 2020 Collection is the pretty Daisy Flower Openwork. Available in metals Pandora Rose and silver, the Openwork Daisy Flower charm is so lovely I got both of them!
Dora Explores: Pandora Openwork Daisy Flower Charm
The structure and design of the Pandora Rose Pink Daisy Flower (788772C01) and the White Daisy Flower Charm (798772C01) is identical. Both feature dainty daises threaded across entwining ribbons. Bright white enamel decorates the little blossoms on the White Daisy Flower Charm. While a combination of solid fuchsia and pink and white ombre effect daisies decorate the Pandora Rose version.
Like a miniature garden the Daisy Flower Charm attracts its own wildlife. Two bees buzz as they busily gather nectar while a tiny ladybird crawls around beneath. Both insects have the same form as on recent Pandora pieces such as the Pink Ladybird Pendant (387909EN160) and the Sparkling Queen Bee Pendant (398840C01). A small heart sits between the wings of the ladybird and bees, with dots and spots creating patterns over their bodies.
Part of the beauty of Pandora openwork charms is how they interact with light and space. The hollow core provides extra depth, creating three levels; raised, surface and beneath.
Style 1: Field of Daisies
“Daisies, simple and sweet.Patrick Rothfuss The Name of the Wind
Daisies are the way to win my heart.”
“I keep stars in my pockets, wear daisies in my hair but I tuck you tenderly in the folds of my heart and take you everywhere.”
Melody Lee Vine: Book of Poetry
“The night was so very still that one should have been able to hear the whisper of roses in blossom – the laughter of daisies – the piping of grasses – many sweet sounds, all tangled up together.”
L.M. Montgomery Anne of the Island
Fragrant blooms, pink hues and the gentle blush of Pandora Rose combine in this beautiful field of daisies. Hiding amongst the flowers, Pandora Friends Nino the Hedgehog (798353EN16), Daisy the Rabbit (798763C00) and Patti the Sheep (798870C00) nibble and munch together.
Style 2: Daisy Chain
“A daisy blooming in a desert is worth moreMatshona Dhliwayo
than a rose blossoming in a rainforest.”
“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”Therese of Lisieux
“Behold the azure sea in front of you,Khang Kijarro Nguyen
the turquoise sky above you,
the amber mountain beneath your feet,
and the golden daisy in your hands.
How are you not the richest person on earth?”
Bright fuchsia enamel from the Pink Daisy Flower (788775C01) and Pink Peach Blossom Flower Spacer (788111ENMX) charms create a magnificent colour pop against the soft Pandora Rose. The elegant Pink Glass & Leaves (788244) and Iridescent Murano (787576) charms balance the silver and Pandora Rose Daisy Flower charms.
My verdict on the Pandora Daisy Flower Charm? I love them not? I love them!Dora

Both the silver and the Pandora Rose Openwork Daisy Flower charms are delightful! The combination of the vivid pink enamel against the delicate shade of Rose is especially charming and provides additional wow factor! Beautifully designed the charms feature enamel details but are still very good value with just a £10/$10 difference between the metals. I am so happy I decided to get both of these charms as I know they will be firm favourites in my Pandora collection.
