While we’ve known about the debut of the Pandora Spring 2014 collection for what seems like a long time now, what slipped under the radar was the March release of the new Pandora Essence fabric cord bracelets! These fabric cord bracelets are the new ‘affordable’ offering from Pandora, presumably with the aim of providing a more affordable entry point to the Essence collection.
I previously reported on seeing promotional cards for these fabric bracelets at my store (unofficially) at the end of February, leading me to wonder if they were going to be released with the Spring 2014 collection – this supposition seems to have been proven correct!
The bracelets are available in both grey and black, and will come in both single and double wrap.
The single leather bracelets are priced at £25, while the double leather bracelets are priced at £30.
I was initially somewhat sceptical of these fabric offerings, and still remain slightly so – while they are cheaper than the silver Essence bracelet, it still seems quite a lot of money to hand over for a very thin fabric cord. Despite being a big fan of Pandora (obviously! :P), I have yet to purchase an Essence bracelet, so I suppose I remain part of the camp that these new bracelets are primarily aimed at. Does it make me want to buy it when I didn’t before? Well, possibly.
I do quite like the grey versions of the bracelet, and spending £25 is significantly less of a challenge than spending £49! So, I’m still not ruling it out entirely. ;)
Do you like these fabric cord bracelets? Will you be buying one?
