~~ Pandora Silver Rabbit Charm ~~
I am very fortunate to own a beautiful sterling silver Pandora Starter Bracelet and I become rather excited every time I step inside a Pandora high street store. Okay, I know it's sad to get so ecstatic over little pieces of jewellery, but I'm the same with candles and toiletries! I'm lucky to have been in a position to fill my bracelet with an array of different shaped charms; all of which mean something to me. One of my charms is a cute little rabbit, which I feel is quite appropriate to review, particularly as we're fast approaching Easter.
The bunny is made entirely from sterling silver and measures approximately 11 mm in length and 9 mm in width. The cute charm consists of a simplistic silver inner section and Pandora has simply added further silver sections to illustrate his head and feet to create his adorable shape. The rabbit's intricate details are considerably breathtaking as he displays a cute little face with his eyes and mouth being perfectly etched into the silver.
To complete his facial features a tiny circular area of silver has been added to his face to depict his nose, which gives him a really lovable appearance. His body is slightly stumpy and very smooth to the touch and he sprouts tiny arms (or should I say legs?) on the upper section with large feet on his underside. What I love about this charm is that his long glossy feet run the entire underside of the charm enabling the bunny to freely stand when he is removed from the bracelet. The edges of the feet have been perfectly created to illustrate his individual toes.
His ears are situated directly on top of his head and are long and floppy, which adds to the irresistibility of this cute little charm. Located on the rabbit's underside within the small area of silver between his feet are the familiar authenticity markings of Pandora, namely ALE and 925. The rear of the bunny displays his tail, which is basically a circular blob of silver that has been created to resemble a ball shape that slightly protrudes from his body. There is a threaded core through the bunny's body, which enables me to effortlessly screw the charm onto my bracelet although he tends to swing around due to the weight of his head. Fortunately, he behaves impeccably when the bracelet is safely on my wrist where his somersault antics cease. Cleaning the bunny is somewhat of a challenge, particularly on the underside between his feet as dust and dirt tend to collect in this area. Consequently, I regularly use the lint free cloth that I obtained free of charge from my local Pandora stockist.
This is an absolutely beautiful charm and perfect as an Easter present for that someone special. The charm reference is 790389 and is available from any Pandora stockist and a cost of £25. This gorgeous rabbit charm receives a recommendation from me together with 5 stars.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
I'm sure that most of you, who have read my reviews, know that I am a big Pandora fan. I have had my Pandora bracelet for a year now, and I love it when I receive new charms. And this Christmas was no difference, to my delight one of my presents I received was this cute little bunny charm for my Pandora bracelet.
I'm sure most of you know what a Pandora bracelet and Pandora charms are, but for those of you who don't, I will quickly explain it. Pandora is a company which sells jewellery such as bracelets, earrings, rings and more. I have a silver Pandora bracelet, but it's a charm bracelet. So you collect charms to put on the bracelet. And the bunny charm I have been talking about is one of the charms I received as a present to put on my bracelet.
Now back to the charm itself. I was delighted when I received this charm. Rabbits are one of my favourite animals, so to have a charm of a rabbit is really nice for me. The charm is really cute. As you can see from the picture, the charm is shaped like a bunny (obviously), it has floppy ears, eyes, a cute round nose and even a little tail on the back of the charm that you can't see from the picture.
To get the charm on the bracelet, you just clip open the bracelet, and twist the charm onto the chain. It comes on and off easily with no problems. I find that the size of the rabbit is a bit bigger then my other Pandora charms, don't get me wrong it's not like massive, I would just say its slightly larger than my other ones. But I think that's better than the charm being really small, because if it was really small I probably wouldn't be able to tell it was a rabbit.
The charm is priced at £25, and I know most of you will be sat here reading that and thinking, £25 for a silver rabbit? But it is a lot cheaper than some of the other Pandora charms you can get. When you buy a Pandora charm, the charm comes in a really cute little box, lined with velvet, and then they normally will put the small box into a Pandora bag. The way that the charm is packaged makes the present even nicer, and it's a really cute way to package up the charm. You can buy Pandora charms from an actual Pandora shop near you, or from jewellers which sells Pandora.
If I had the chance to change one thing about the charm, I would probably like just a bit more detail on it. However I still love the charm, it's cute and a great present (especially for bunny lovers!)
I recieved this rabbit pandora charm as an Easter gift back in 2010. The charm was just £20.00 back at Easter 2010, it now retails for £25.00.
The pandora model number of the little rabbit charm is 790389.
This cute little rabbit charm is an ideal Easter gift for someone, it makes a nice change from an Easter egg, it's healthier! and it will last her forever. You could even just to treat yourself to this cute little rabbit charm.
He is really very cute, and lots of detail has gone into making this little charm.
He has a cute little face and two long floppy ears, he is holding his two front paws out in front of him, he has two large flat feet with indents for his toes. Around the back of the little rabbit is his little ball shaped tail, this has indents engraved on it to represent the texture of his tail.
He is stamped with 925 (for sterling silver) and ALE (for pandora) on the bottom of one of his feet.
He is a lovely little charm, but I have to say that he is the charm that I am most disapointed with. He has tarnished quite badly, especially in all the nooks and crannys. he doesn't look anywhere near as good as when I first got him. I do wear my bracelet all the time, but none of the other charms have discoloured, I do take my bracelet off whenever I have my hands in water.
When I bought my Pandora bracelet I decided I wanted to some beads to go with it as I didn't think that it looked all that good on it's own. Normally this costs £30 but as Mememe Accessories were selling off all their stock, they were selling the beads/ charms at reduced prices so I paid £24 for this.
They have now upped the price again to £27 a long with many of the other items meaning the discount is just 10% now.
This bead is specifically designed for Pandora bracelets. However I should think that you would be able to put them on another bracelet as long as it was quite slim in thickness.
The bead arrived already placed onto the bracelet but they did send a little cardboard flattended box and piece of pink tissue paper should I have wished to give it to someone.
It's quite easy to add the bead to the bracelet; you need to open the clasp using a fingernail and take out one of the ends; then twist the bead over the rims till it falls down to the bottom of the bracelet. Of course, if you want this in the middle, you need to take the others off first, then put this on, then put the others back.
The reason I picked this bead was the detail in the picture. However, when I recieved it, I found that the body of it looked rather discoloured, much darker grey than in the picture though the face and paws were lighter. This makes it look a bit odd. Also, I couldn't see the detailling on the feet, in the picture you could clearly see the definition on the toes but not on the real thing.
I had checked with Pandora that they were a genuine retailer before buying anything as there are a lot of clones and fakes around and they said they were so not quite sure why it does't look the same...
But for that, he's quite cute, with long floppy ears and a tail.
If you're looking to pick an animal charm, it may be best to pick a different one as this doesn't quite fit the picture...
I love animal charms as I just find them to be so cute, however I am aware that too many on the bracelet of a grown woman may be slightly OTT and verging on the wrong side of kitch. I have tried to limit myself to the amount of animal charms that I personally consider to be normal but this gorgeous little bunny convinced me to buy him when I saw him in the jewelers window. He was priced up a £28 which seems to be the average price for an animal charm and along with my Giraffe one he is definately one of my favourites. I do have a slight problem with pandora charms in general with thinking that they are overpriced and this bunny is no different especially when I see you can find him online for just over £20. Yes he is gorgeous but I am not sure that means he is worth nearly £30 especially as he is so tiny. Although he is miniscule the detailing is amazing and you can make out his floppy ears and face no problem and he is one of the charms on my bracelet that you can actually tell what it is from a distance whereas with most of them they are so small that you have to be really close to see what it is. He is fully marked with 925 which shows that he is made from silver and ALE to prove he is genuine pandora charm and not a cheaper immitation. There isn't really a lot more to say about him other than he is adorable and would make a lovely gift for someone especially with easter coming up.
