REVIEW: PANDORA Rose Essence Caring Charm
“The simple act of caring is heroic.”
Friendship is sharing openly, laughing often, trusting always and caring deeply.
This year we have been throughly spoiled by PANDORA with a dazzling selection of charms in the Autumn 2017 Collection including the first Essence PANDORA Rose Collection. The collection comprises of an Essence PANDORA Rose Bracelet (586000) and six charms; Happiness (786202), Caring (786203), Confidence (786304CZ), Compassion (786302CZ), Dedication (786305CZ) and Affection (786303CZ).
If you are unfamiliar with the PANDORA Essence collection, take note that Essence charms can only fit the PANDORA Essence Bracelet or Bangle and cannot be worn on PANDORA Moments bracelets as they are smaller than Moments charms. Each of the Essence charms represent a personal value or quality, making them especially ideal for gifts. In this article I will be reviewing the PANDORA Rose Essence Caring (786203) charm.
The PANDORA Rose Essence Caring charm is actually a PANDORA Rose version of a previous Essence charm but interestingly it is a different quality expressed! The silver version of the charm is the Essence Love Openwork (796070) charm, which was released in Spring 2016. Both charms display a row of interlinked filigree hearts which encircle the charm. As a caring friend is a source of consistent love, it is a fitting symbol for both qualities, love and caring.
The quality portrayed by each PANDORA Essence charm is engraved on one side, making it a wonderful memory of the occasion or giver. PANDORA Essence charms are not only smaller than the Moments charms, they also have silicone placed at the center of their core. This allows them to be positioned on the Essence bracelet without moving around.
The PANDORA Rose Essence Caring charm may be small but it is powerful! The blushing rose radiates warmth and almost glows around the interlocking hearts.
The PANDORA Rose Essence Caring charm has the ‘PANDORA’ and ‘T1 ALE R’ hallmark on one side.
My first design of the PANDORA Rose Essence Caring charm is quite regal with the deep blue Essence Peace (796002lp) charm between the two golds. The lapis lazuli gemstone of the Peace charm has natural flecks of gold which look stunning surrounded by the Essence Intuition (796049) and PANDORA Rose Caring charms.
I love the elegance of PANDORA Essence charms and especially enjoy wearing my Essence bracelet for special occasions. This combination of pearl from the Dignity (796068P) charm and yellow and rose gold from the Intuition and PANDORA Rose Caring charms makes an exquisite accessory for glamorous parties!
Simply exchanging the Dignity charm for the smoky quartz Essence Compassion (796003sq) charm, transforms the bracelet into alluring autumnal hues which would a fabulous adornment to a snuggly, warm, wooly jumper (or sweater for my American friends!).
This final styling of the PANDORA Rose Caring charm, highlights the simple beauty of the PANDORA Essence charms. The smoky and lemon quartz of the Compassion and Optimism (796046LQ) charms at either end, twinkle and shine in the light, whilst the Intuition, Dignity and Caring charms create a sweet harmony in their diversity.
My verdict on the PANDORA Rose Essence Caring charm? An Essential!
