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?
It all looks great in live shots! I really love the red effervescence and I will definitely be getting one or more for a touch of Christmas color. I have yet to buy any essence though. I like quite a few but there are so many regular beads I love that I don’t want to spend on essence yet. But I hope one day to start. The gold essence beads I think are also a little more affordable than the regular ones so that would be nice.
I totally agree! It was really helpful to actually see the charms styled in some designs, and the jewellery always looks prettier in person. I liked the red Effervescence as well – it really pops against the gold, too! ^^
I’m also yet to buy an Essence bracelet, even though I’m really loving the new pieces for Autumn! I just have so many other bracelets right now that I’m not sure how much I would wear it. Regarding the gold pieces, this seems to be Pandora’s new marketing strategy – instead of trying to sell the very expensive pure 14kt pieces, the new two-tone Essence charms and the two-tone rose gold dangles that came out today offer some more affordable options. I have to say I’m personally really pleased that they are doing this, as I couldn’t hope to afford the regular gold line. :D
Regarding the new winter charms – I hope they go back to designing something that is more Pandora-esque. These new charms don’t scream Pandora to me..
Yours is a pretty common complaint to hear amongst long-standing Pandora fans. :( While I like a lot of the new charms coming out, I miss the older classic silver designs too. Unfortunately they look to be fully invested in this new look, though – I guess it must be selling quite well.
Hello, thank you for the update on Pandora’s new collection. I was after the Corno Red ( Horn ) Dangle charm but cannot see it on your listings. Will it be for sale and if so how much? Kind regards Marjorie Parry.
Hi Marjorie, I’m really sorry but I don’t actually sell Pandora charms. I just write about the jewellery. :) Sorry for the misunderstanding! The Corno charm is due to be released on the 28th of August, however, and you’ll be able to buy it from any Pandora retailer.
Wow I’m so excited about the new two tone essence bracelet and the two tone bangle! Do you happen to know how much these are going to be selling for? :-)
Yay! I don’t have any details on the two-tone Essence bracelet at all (aside from this picture), but I’m told that the two-tone bangle will be priced at the same amount as the existing two-tone snake chain bracelet. So that puts it at $325 USD or £275 for the UK. :)
Have you got any close ups of the Family Bond charm ?, I have seen a very small pic of it, but would live to see the true colour of it. Very excited by some of the new charms, although the glitzy ones don’t appeal very much…..
Hi Karen, I’ve had a little look around the internet for you and found this picture listed of it:
It looks like it’s pretty true to the stock image from that live shot, quite a deep pink.
Mmm, I’m not overly keen on the blingy charms either (for want of a better word), but happily there are more than enough charms that I do really like in this collection! ^^
That is fantastic, thank you. And the colour is perfect for me, so it’s definately on my birthday list!!! Thanks again xx
You’re welcome! Glad you like it :D xx
