It’s been a long time since we got our first sneak peeks of this collection back in January, and it’s hard to believe that it’s finally here – the Pandora Summer 2014 collection is released globally today! The collection is characterised by tropical colours in orange and teal, and boasts a vibrant, fun theme.
To see a full overview of the Pandora Summer 2014 collection, check here – or look through the Summer 2014 tag for live shots, look book images and other news.
Today also sees the release of the Pandora Essence Summer 2014 release, which features a collection of zodiac charms and a beaded bracelet – a post on this will be going up later today!
As retailers have got the new collection in, some gorgeous shots of the new collection have emerged on social media. I particularly love the little floral detail on the base of the Sparkling Pineapple, which you can see in the first image by Pandora Freehold. So cute!
Paris Amour and Southern Cross charms
There was some confusion as to the status of these charms, as they weren’t included in initial previews of the Summer 2014 collection. It now seems that these charms have been released worldwide – however, in the US and Canada, they do not appear to have been released. I don’t know whether they will be special release, or whether the US division of Pandora has just decided not to include these two charms in the US collection.
My favourites from the collection are the Windmill and the Lucky Penny, although I’m also a fan of the teal theme, and the beautiful orange Tropical murano. I’m also amazed at the reasonableness of some of the UK prices – the Windmill and the Lucky Penny are both priced at £25! I’d have expected £30, so I’m pleased with that!
However, while I was planning on getting the Windmill, my parents are currently away in Amsterdam and, as the windmill is so emblematic of Holland, I mentioned to my mum on the phone that I was going to get it. There was a brief silence, before she said, ‘Well, that’s ruined that Christmas surprise!’. It turned out that she’d gone especially to Pandora to get it for me! At least she can know for sure that I’ll like it, haha. Consequently, I’m not sure if I’ll be picking anything up just yet from the Summer collection, although I’m still thinking of starting a teal theme in the UK’s bracelet promo in July.
What do you think of the new Summer collection? Will you be purchasing anything?
