Today’s post brings a review from the Pandora Rose Spring 2015 collection, with a closer look at the simply stunning Darling Daisy Meadow charm! Offering a striking blend of Pandora Rose silver and white enamel detailing, this charm was my must-have from the latest release in the Pandora Rose line.
If you’re unfamiliar with Pandora Rose, it’s a collection of plated rose gold charms and jewellery. However, it is currently limited to North America, so this charm is not available in other regions for now. Consequently, I’ll also be offering a little styling inspiration using both this charm and the regular silver Darling Daisy pieces, which are available worldwide. :)
While I’ve only opted for the Darling Daisy Meadow so far, I would have bought lots from this collection if possible. ^^ Particularly lovely is the Love & Appreciation heart (in the top right corner). I am also rather in love with Pandora’s advertising campaign for this collection. The shots of the charms and bracelets arranged in the jewellery box are just beautiful!
However, the charm I had to have was this Darling Daisy Meadow – I am a big fan of the Darling Daisy collection and it’s great to have the whole set. Moreover, the Pandora Rose version is just beautiful in person, featuring a ‘meadow’ of delicate white enamel flowers, each with a rose gold centre. The effect of them all clustered together is so pretty!
This design is actually unique to the Pandora Rose line; while there is a silver Darling Daisy Meadow clip, there’s no exact silver version of this charm. One of the great things about using this design for the Rose collection is that, unlike smooth, shiny charms such as the Big Smooth Heart, it has a lot of accented detailing. This means that it will show up wear and tear less, which is quite a consideration when purchasing plated jewellery.
The effect is quite different from the other silver Darling Daisy pieces. The rose gold plating makes the charm much more luminous, and the flowers – although they are the same white enamel – look quite pinkish in tone. The Rose version is much more vibrant and bright. However, both silver and rose versions still look gorgeous together; the colours make for a nice contrast.
Like all the other Rose charms, the Darling Daisy Meadow is not threaded and it’s very lightweight in person. While some of the other Rose pieces feel a little insubstantial to me, I like the delicacy of this one. It’s hallmarked with ‘ALE R’ and a + symbol.
I originally had a pink and white theme going with my Pandora Rose pieces and it’s undoubtedly a great way to style the collection. The delicate pink Cherry Blossom murano is perfect for bringing out the pink hues in the Pandora Rose charms, while the other white Darling Daisy pieces make a lovely complement.
However, I took this apart and opted for a simpler white and rose gold colour scheme, which offers a more classic, elegant effect. I just love the contrast between the white enamel and the Pandora Rose pieces.
I’ve also added in the Spring 2015 Wild Flower murano, which looks surprisingly beautiful with the Rose charms. It gives them a pretty, natural look.
This was my most-anticipated designs from the new Pandora Rose collection and it didn’t disappoint in person! It has a beautiful luminous quality that makes it instantly stand out on a bracelet design. The white enamel detailing also gives it a delicacy that’s a little different from the pavé detailing that characterises most of the rest of the Pandora Rose line.
The Pandora Rose Darling Daisy Meadow charm is $70 USD; unfortunately the Pandora Rose line is not yet available outside of North America (-_-). However, if you’re in the UK, you can purchase the silver Darling Daisy Meadow clip and the Darling Daisy spacer, along with the rest of the Pandora Spring collection, from authorised retailer John Greed.
Have you bought this charm, or is it on your wish list? Are you a fan of the Pandora Rose line?
