Today’s post brings you a complete preview of the Pandora Winter Collection for 2013. This year’s winter collection from Pandora focuses on Christmas in quite a big way, with a lot of new Christmas designs such as the candy cane and three wise men, and with some re-vamps of old designs, such as the Christmas tree.

The collection will be available worldwide on the 4th of November.

The new Carousel is just delightful, and really summons up that festive, celebratory Christmas atmosphere. It will retail for £45 or $60.

We have a few re-designs of previous charms – Father Christmas, Christmas Tree and Christmas Sled charms already exist, but they have been re-imagined for Winter 2013.

Father Christmas or St. Nick now comes in a red enamel suit, and will set you back £45 or $50.

I particularly like the purple, which looks very opulent.

For gold lovers, the Winter collection brings only one gold charm, in the form of a gold version of the popular Pavé Lights series. Note – the stones are cubic zirconia. This is priced at £399 or $400 – so quite a price difference between markets, there!

We also get new colours of the Faceted Beauties: blue and purple. These are priced at £40 or $55 each.

Finally, for readers in the UK, both the Pandora Shopping Bag and the Pink Fizzle murano are also making their solo debuts with the winter collection. The Pink Fizzle murano will still be available as part of the breast cancer charity bracelet set, however.

US readers should bear in mind that eleven of these charms will be making up the Twelve Days of Christmas promotion (with the twelfth being the 2013 Black Friday charm). This promotion will run from the 4th  to the 14th of November, and will see a 2013 Christmas charm released on each of the days.

My Comment

This collection is a very Christmas-themed one, which is unsurprising. I, for one, celebrate Christmas, and in a big way, so I’m finding the wait until the 4th of November something of a struggle ;). I especially love the Reindeer, the Carousel and the new Christmas Tree. For those who don’t go in for Christmas, I think the selection of winter-themed charms are also delightful – particularly the Snowflake pendant, and the Mittens dangle. All in all, I think there are some really beautiful designs here, and a lot to love.

Are you excited? I am! :)
