*HQ images are now available here!* Exciting news as today’s post brings a preview of the Pandora Winter 2014 collection! The collection, entitled Light up the Night in the US, features a lot of star designs, unsurprisingly! ;) It also includes a number of festive charms, which feature, in contrast, a cute use of enamel.
The colours for this collection are a beautiful midnight blue, which serves to represent the night sky, and a cheerfully festive red. There are also a couple more gold designs included in this collection, although both feature cubic zirconia detailing.
I don’t have the release date yet, but I would expect this collection to land around late October / early November. The collection is reportedly set to debut on the 30th of October.
All prices are given in US dollars. You can click on all of the pictures to enlarge them!
Pandora Winter 2014
The star charms feature a lot of pavé detailing, which, although sometimes controversial among fans, seems apposite here – as it represents the sparkle of a starry sky.
The Starry Heart charm will be a shop-in-shop exclusive in the US, meaning that it won’t be available in US concept stores.
Of course, no Pandora winter collection would be complete without a range of holiday-themed charms. In contrast to the edgier, more decorative look of the star and galaxy themed charms, the holiday charms represent a cheerful, festive set – with a heavy use of enamel. However, the Wrapped up in Pandora charm gets a makeover with cubic zirconia detailing instead of enamel in the Sparkling Surprise.
The Silent Night charm will be a Jared’s exclusive in the US.
To complement these starry pieces, the decorative pieces also have that midnight colour scheme – the absolutely gorgeous new faceted murano contains some beautiful gold flecks in it, while the cubic zirconia detailing of the Fizzle muranos makes them perfect for representing the night sky. There is also a red Fizzle/Effervescence murano to complement the red enamel tones in the holiday-themed charms.
The Spread the Love charm will be a Jared’s exclusive in the US, while the Cathedral Rose will be a concept store exclusive.
I love midnight blue as a colour scheme, so I’m very keen to see these in person! <3 I absolutely adore the Moon and Night pendants. I also like the contrast between the more decorative star-theme and the traditional Christmas charms, which perhaps offers pieces to suit a variety of tastes. Of the Christmas charms, I particularly like the Christmas Ornament, which is just adorable.
My favourites of these charms are perhaps the new muranos, especially the complexly-named Fascinating Aventurescent and Midnight Effervescence, which I imagine will look stunning in person. I can understand why Pandora are retiring some of their original glasswork to make way for some of these new designs.
What do you think of this year’s winter collection? Are any of these going on your wish list?
