Today’s post brings some fresh live shots of the upcoming Autumn and Winter 2014 collections from Pandora! The new charms and jewellery have been showcased at a number of roadshows across Australia and New Zealand, and the ladies who attended have done a fantastic job of capturing the jewellery for us. A word of warning, however – this post is extremely image-intensive! ;)
Most exciting, perhaps, is a new shot that appears to reveal a two-tone Pandora Essence bracelet – something that I was previously completely unaware of! The pictures also confirm the upcoming release of a two-tone Pandora bangle.

Two-Tone Bracelets Galore!
First up is a shot of a new two-tone Pandora Essence bracelet, featuring a gold clasp and silver snake chain – its existence has been confirmed by those who attended! While rumours have been circulating for ages about the impending release of a two-tone bangle, I’ve not heard anything about a two-tone Essence bracelet. Releasing one, however, does make perfect sense considering the selection of two-tone Essence charms that will be released with the Autumn 2014 collection (you can also see one of these in the subsequent picture).
The other confirmed sighting at the roadshow was the much-anticipated two-tone version of the Pandora bangle! Priced at the same amount as the regular two-tone bracelet, this one is going to be way out of my price range – that doesn’t stop me looking and drooling, however. The two-tone bangle is the bracelet in the middle of the shot. :)
Pandora Autumn/Winter 2014
The following images depict charms from the Autumn and Winter 2014 collections. Here, you can see pieces from the new Shimmering Leaves collection, alongside the gorgeous new Ochre Fascinating murano.
The new Fall blue double leather bracelet makes an appearance alongside some of the new Winter 2014 collection. I did wonder myself why this bracelet was debuting with the Autumn collection, as it looks great with some of the Winter pieces.
I also really love the look of the Ochre Fascinating murano with gold pieces. It gives such a beautiful warm look, which does remind me, as it is intended to, of autumn leaves.
The Autumn 2014 rings seem to have been very popular so far, with a lot of buzz about them coming from previews for the press and fashion bloggers. Pandora are investing a lot in their ring selection at the moment (this year is being marketed as the ‘Year of the Ring’) and some beautiful pieces are debuting as a result.
The Winter charms also look really fun and festive in these shots. The reds look like they really pop, and the enamel charms inevitably look cuter in person.
The spherical Jolly Santa charm actually looks pretty adorable in real life, even if I really don’t know how you’d ever style him in anything other than a very festive design!
One of my new favourites from these shots, however, is the new red Fizzle/Effervescent murano (which you can see in the following three pictures). It looks like it’s an incredibly pretty cherry colour, and it also works well when placed with gold!
The Christmas Pudding also looks adorable in person – you can also see the little red enamel hat of the new Christmas Bear charm in the next picture. ^^
You can pick out the Sparkling Surprise gift charm in the following pic, alongside more pretty reds and golds.
In the rest of the images, the new Everlasting Grace pearl collection plays a large role, lending a very soft, elegant look to the designs. It contrasts with the boldness of the star and galaxy designs, softening them.
The Galaxy and Wishing Star designs are shaping up to be stunning in person, the Galaxy openworks in particular!
The Galaxy openworks probably have a little more versatility than the other starry designs, and they’re among the pieces that I’m most keen to see myself in person.
Another Winter 2014 favourite of mine is the new Starry Heart. It features a simple silver heart design, with little stars cut out of it. You can see it featured on the silver bracelet below, alongside the new Twinkling Night clip.
Pandora Essence Autumn/Winter 2014
Also on show at the roadshows were the gorgeous new charms due out with the Essence Autumn 2014 collection. The charms include a lovely selection of new two-tone, silver and stone designs and have received an extremely positive reaction from fans so far!
I am surprised and really pleased to see the shot of the new two-tone Pandora Essence bracelet emerge, even if I wouldn’t personally go for one; it shows that Pandora are committed to developing and expanding the scope of the range. It’s becoming an increasingly inspiring collection, and the latter half of 2014 is set to provide some really exciting releases for Essence fans. I’m very curious to know more about it!
As for the charms, I’m really excited for these releases and I can’t wait to see them in person myself. ;) I particularly love the starry pieces from Winter 2014 and the leafy designs from Autumn. <3 There are a few pieces that weren’t featured in the roadshows that I would have loved to have got a closer look at, too, such as the new Doll charms from Autumn or some of the other new Winter 2014 muranos.
What do you think of the two-tone Essence bracelet? Are you excited for the upcoming Autumn and Winter collections?
