Today brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, with new shots and information regarding upcoming collections, plus some clarification on what exactly is up with the promo scheduling for the UK. ;) Summer is really beginning to kick in here in the UK, with some lovely sunny weather – I never used to be a summer kind of person, but nowadays I really relish the heat and sun, and the uplifting effect it has on my mood.
Pandora-wise, the majority of July will be pretty quiet, with the exception of a couple of leather bracelet promotions for the US and the UK – the big news is the release of the Pandora Pre-Autumn collection at the end of the month. Read on for full details!
Pandora Late Summer / Pre-Autumn 2014 Release
The biggest news for this month has to be the release of Pandora’s Pre-Autumn mini collection! The collection features the first ever rose gold pieces from Pandora, and is due out globally on the 31st of July – see the whole collection with details on US pricing here. However, some stores in the US have already been receiving their stocks of the collection, and consequently there are now some gorgeous live shots of the new charms!
Pandora ‘Corno’ charm from Autumn 2014 sees limited release in Italy
While, for most regions, the Pandora Corno dangle is due out with the Autumn 2014 collection in August, the charm has already been launched as a special release in Naples, Italy. It is being sold for 35 euros.
I’m also glad that Pandora aren’t marketing this in Italy as an exclusive charm to Naples – they’ve been quite clear that it is an exclusive ‘preview’ of the charm, and not an exclusive charm full-stop.
Instagram user flaviadesp uploaded this lovely live shot of the charm, giving us a good idea of how it looks in person:
Pandora Autumn 2014 Live Shots
A couple of new live shots of the upcoming Pandora Autumn 2014 collection have emerged on social media, from various media previews. We’ve not had any extensive pictures released yet, but hopefully more live images of the charms will be released soon!
In the subsequent picture, you can see pieces from the popular Shimmering Leaves collection, plus the top of the Floral Heart Padlock, which looks chunkier than I anticipated.
There are also more shots of the rings due to be released with the Autumn 2014 collection, plus one shot of the new blue leather bracelet and some charms! Click any image to enlarge it.
US Leather Bracelet Promotion
From the July 10 to 20, Pandora in the US and Canada are offering customers the opportunity to obtain either a single strand leather bracelet or a multi-strand colour cord bracelet with every purchase of $100 USD or $125 CAD. This is a great little promotion for summer, when many collectors eschew their traditional silver bracelets for something lighter.
UK Leather Bracelet Promotion
As some of you may already be aware, there have been some major changes in the scheduling for Pandora promotions in the UK. While the UK’s bracelet promo this month was originally scheduled to be a silver barrel clasp bracelet GWP at the beginning of the month, this has now been changed. In the new schedule, the silver bracelet promotion has been pushed back to October, and there will instead be a leather bracelet GWP which is scheduled for the 24th – 27th of July. Additionally, the Pandora UK summer sale is scheduled to last until the 6th of July, so there are only a few more days left to grab those bargains!
I’ll confess myself a little disappointed, as this leather bracelet promotion was originally due to be run in October – which would have been a perfect opportunity to snap up the new midnight blue leather bracelet that will be released in August with the Autumn 2014 collection. I may still participate, however, and get myself a purple leather bracelet instead of the midnight blue!
There’s definitely some stuff to look forward to this month, with the debut of the Pre-Autumn collection and some great leather bracelet promos for the UK and the US. I’m so curious to see what the new pieces from Pre-Autumn will look like in person, and I’m also hoping that we’ll be seeing more previews of the upcoming Autumn and Winter 2014 collections. :D
What are you looking forward to for July? Will you be participating in any of the bracelet promotions? Which upcoming collections most appeal to you?
