Following on from my preview of the Pandora Winter 2014 collection and jewellery, I now have a sneak peek of a new limited edition pavé bangle that will be accompanying the collection! The bangle features a new pavé star design on one side of its clasp, and will be the second LE bangle from Pandora this year.
The bangle is due out with the Winter 2014 pieces on the 30th of October.
The Star Bangle
The bangle is a limited edition piece, featuring a special clasp with a pavé star design in clear cubic zirconia stones. The star motif complements both the dramatic cosmic motifs of the Winter 2014 collection and its more festive pieces, and offers a cute LE piece in time for the holidays!
This is set to retail for $75 in the US. I don’t have news on pricing in other currencies, or how exactly this bangle will be made available in other regions.
This LE bangle will be the second that Pandora have produced, following on from the Circle of Love bangle (as it was known in the US), which featured a special pavé heart design on one side of its clasp:
This bangle was released with the Mother’s Day 2014 collection, and only a limited number were produced (although it is still quite widely available to buy).
When the Circle of Love bangle was released back in April, it was available in varying ways depending on your region – for example, it was available to buy on its own in the US, while the UK sold it only as part of a gift set. It was only offered as a GWP in Australia, too. Consequently, I can’t predict exactly how this new starry version of the bangle will be obtainable in different regions.
When I first heard about this new bangle I was a little unsure, as, when I got my Circle of Love bangle, I was thinking that it was a special one-off LE bangle from Pandora. Does it reduce the exclusivity of my original pavé heart bangle if they continue to release multiple LE bangles? Yes, it probably does. However, I’ve since come to the conclusion that I don’t really mind.
This new version of the bangle will most probably look great in person, and it would make an amazing gift for the holidays. The clear cubic zirconia of the star may not be as striking as the original pink pavé heart bangle, but it does make it slightly more versatile.
The idea of having a range of LE bangles also admittedly seems a sweet idea, and I like the concept of themed exclusive pieces for each special season. However, I don’t think I’ll be buying any more potential versions beyond the original Circle of Love bangle, as I just adore it – it has such a lovely soft pastel shade. I want to keep it as a special piece in my collection. Of course, they may not produce any more than these two, anyway.
What do you think of the new pavé star bangle? Will it be going on your wish list?
