REVIEW: Moments Smooth Pandora Rose Bracelet
“One may live without bread, not without roses.”
Soft, smooth and sumptuous; the PANDORA Rose Bracelet is our favourite accessory this Autumn.It was love at first sight when I had my first glimpse of the Moments Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet (580728) from the Autumn 2017 Collection. As I already had the PANDORA Rose Heart Clasp Bracelet, I didn’t really ‘need’ another PANDORA Rose Bracelet but who could say no to a complete PANDORA Rose chain?
The smooth snake chain brings a sleek elegance to the PANDORA Rose Bracelet. Although the threads on the normal Moments bracelets are quite useful they can look a little messy if you don’t feel like wearing a full design. The Moments Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet is so magnificent it is gorgeous even when worn without charms.
The PANDORA logo with the crown, encircles the clasp on either side of the Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet. The PANDORA Rose hallmark, R1 ALE R, is hidden away on the inside of the clasp.
The Moments Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet is available in 7 different sizes; 16,17,18,19,20,21 and 23cm. I decided to go a little smaller than my normal size as I won’t be filling the bracelet completely.
As with the new Silver Mesh Bracelet, the Moments Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet has smooth ends. This makes it quick add your charms but remember to be careful when opening the bracelet to avoid any charms slipping off. If you want to take extra precaution you can use a safety chain with your bracelet. There are currently two options for the PANDORA Rose range. The PANDORA Rose Insignia Safety Chain (782057CZ) has PANDORA Rose clips with cubic zirconia stones and a silver chain and is $100 USD / $110 CAD / £90 / €99. The PANDORA Rose Shining Elegance Safety Chain (786322CZ) is in PANDORA Rose with cubic zirconia stones and is $125 USD / $140 CAD / £100 / €119.
As there are no threads on the Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet you can choose where to place your charms. PANDORA Rose silicone clips are available if you want to keep your design in place. My favourite is the PANDORA Rose Shining Path Clip (781972CZ) which is $55 USD / $60 CAD / £45 / €49. If you prefer to use non-silicone PANDORA clips you can place a silicone insert inside and then clip onto the bracelet. The silicone inserts can be purchased from PANDORA stores or bought online from Amazon.
To emphasise the beauty of the PANDORA Rose smooth snake chain my first design is a sweet pink and PANDORA Rose theme. The new PANDORA Rose Pink Shimmer Glass (781650) works well as a focal point and the Pink Petite Facets (791499pcz), Pink Field of Flowers (791665) and Shimmering Stripe Murano (796248) add symmetry to the design.
The PANDORA Rose chain blends wonderfully with the Rose core of the Pink Shimmer Glass.
My final design plays with contrasts of silver, enamel and glass against the PANDORA Rose. This look is perfect for Autumn as the leaves change colours.
My verdict on the Smooth PANDORA Rose Bracelet? So cute it made blush!
