*UPDATED* You can see the concept store collection charms here. It looks like wishes do come true for many Pandora collectors, as the brand have officially announced a new charm collection in collaboration with Walt Disney! I’ve been hearing rumours about this over the past couple of weeks, and I’m thrilled that they have proven to be true, as Disney designs have been requested by Pandora fans for years. This licensing deal is Pandora’s third in the past twelve months, and comes after their two big sports licensing partnerships in the US with the MLB and the NFL.
Pandora Disney Collection
There are no images released as of yet, but Pandora have hinted at some of the details of the collection, which is described as the ‘perfect balance of sophistication and whimsy’. It will include some of Disney’s ‘most beloved’ characters, including Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and consists of 25 different charms in silver and two-tone 14kt gold designs. There will be an additional 16 designs sold only in ‘Disney merchandise locations’, which will include the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
Sadly, it looks like this Disney collection will be exclusive to North America as of now – the press release lists Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central America and the Caribbean as receiving the line. Sob. *UPDATE* I e-mailed Pandora UK to double-check with them and someone there kindly confirmed that there are no plans to launch this outside of America for now. :(
The collection is expected to be rolled out into stores in early November this year.
I’ve been among those requesting Disney designs as long as I’ve been collecting Pandora, so I am very excited to see what the designs will look like! :D I’ve coveted some of the classic Chamilia Disney charms for years. If it doesn’t make it to other territories, then I expect that I’ll be trying to get one of the charms from overseas.
Personally, the characters I’d most like to see made into charms would be those from Winnie the Pooh – I loved Chamilia’s Eeyore, for example. ^^
Would this collection appeal to you? Which Disney characters would you like to see as charms?
