Today’s post covers Pandora’s recent release of country-exclusive versions of the Unforgettable Moments pendants. These include a limited edition World Cup 2014 charm for Brazil, and a series of destination charms for the US and Canada. All these charms are engraved versions of the Unforgettable Moments dangle, and will have this design on one side:
World Cup 2014 Charm
As the World Cup 2014 gets underway, Pandora have released this limited edition charm to commemorate the event! This charm is exclusive to Brazil and is available from their official Pandora eStore. It is priced at R$ 175.00 (approximately $77 or £46), although it is discounted to R$ 122.50 currently. I’m not a big football fan myself, but I imagine this would be a nice commemoration for enthusiasts of the sport – even if the recycling of the Unforgettable Moments design is perhaps something of a perfunctory effort from Pandora.
Retailers are not allowed to ship outside of their geographical region, so if you want to obtain this charm, you’d have to have some willing to help you in Brazil. For those who are unable to obtain this charm, but would like to commemorate the 2014 World Cup, there is always the Brazil charm that debuted with either the Spring or Summer 2014 collection (depending on your region):
Destination Pendants for US & Canada
Also released earlier this month were these Destination Charms for the US and Canada, a range of travel-themed pendants are exclusive to North America. Each dangle represents an iconic image associated with various popular destinations throughout the US and Canada. They are priced at $60 USD – however, some stores may not carry all the pendants, so you should check with your store first. They are available from some online retailers, however.
Again, official retailers in the US are not allowed to ship internationally – consequently, international readers would have to find a friend in North America to help them.
I really like the idea of having charms for the states in the US & Canada – I could imagine going on holiday to a state and picking one of these up as a fun way to remember my visit! The actual engravings on the charms are nicely done, too, and do a good job of conveying the different character of each place.
On the other hand, the World Cup 2014 dangle is a little unexciting; I know it’s only seeing a very limited release, but a more substantial charm might have had some appeal worldwide. World cup fever has certainly taken hold here in England, for example!
Would you get any of these country-exclusive charms? Are you a football fan?
