Review: Pandora Sparkling Rose in Bloom

“Of all flowers, methinks a rose is best.”

William Shakespeare, The Two Noble Kinsmen

The Pandora Sparkling Rose in Bloom charm was released as part of Pandora’s 2024 Spring collection. This charm is an elegant embodiment of the beauty of a rose. The petals of the rose are layered as if the rose were in full bloom, and is encrusted with a coating of sparkling cubic zirconias.

Two green leaves dangle from the rose providing movement, and additional life-like details to the rose.

Along the bottom of the charm is the traditional hallmark for silver Pandora jewelry, S925 and ALE. This charm has no internal threading, so it will move freely on your bracelet.

Style 1: Belle of Roses

The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope, for who could ever learn to love a beast?

Beauty and the Beast

My first styling of the Sparkling Rose in Bloom is on a Beauty and the Beast themed bracelet. Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies, and is even the origin of my Instagram name, Charmingly Baroque. In the animated Disney movie, Cogsworth makes a joke that “if it’s not baroque, don’t fix it.”

The rose charm is the perfect representation of the rose given to the Beast by the Enchantress at the beginning of the movie.

The Sparkling Rose is a gorgeous centerpiece charm with its many eye-catching CZs. It is surrounded by two Disney x Pandora Beauty and the Beast dangles, the dancing Belle charm and dancing couple.

Many of the charms on this bracelet are older retired pieces. I remember driving to an outlet mall an hour from my house in search of the Pandora Vanity Mirror charm to represent the mirror given to Belle by the Beast.

Briar Rose

Make it pink! Oh, no, not pink. Make it blue!

Sleeping Beauty

I can’t help thinking of another Disney movie when I think of a rose. Sleeping Beauty or Aurora went by the name Briar Rose when hidden away in the forest from the dangers of Maleficent.

In this Sleeping Beauty themed mini design, I have the Sparkling Rose in Bloom coupled with the Disneyland Castle dangle, and Fairy Godmothers charm surrounded by a few of Briar Rose’s woodland creature friends.

The Secret Garden

If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

My final design is a garden themed bracelet. A gorgeous garden contains not just one flower, but many varieties, and so does this bracelet.

The Sparkling Rose in Bloom charm is surrounded by a couple of two-tone retired Pandora pieces, a lovely fairy sharing her magic, and an adorable gardening hat. This magical garden contains butterflies, birds, and ladybugs, as well as an assortment of flowers.

My Verdict: The Pandora Sparkling Rose in Bloom is a stunning charm with seemingly endless design opportunities.
