Exciting news today as an image of a new Pandora murano glass design has appeared on Pandora’s UK website, called the Wildflower Tribute. We don’t know yet what exactly this charm is being released for, but rumour has it that it is going to be in commemoration of this year’s Remembrance Day.
The design is similar to the existing Cherry Blossom murano, but with a red and black poppy flower design, the iconic symbol of remembrance for those killed in war. Like most murano glass, it is priced at £30.
The charm, as far as I’m aware, has only appeared on the UK edition of the Pandora.net website and eStore, so it is possibly an exclusive to the UK. The eStore is listing the charm as out of stock, however, although I don’t know if this is because they have genuinely sold out or it isn’t available to order yet. I did ring my local store this morning to ask about it, but they didn’t seem to have any idea what I was talking about lol.
*UPDATED* Pandora stores in the UK are now quoting the 16th of October as its release date! The charm was originally due out yesterday but there have been issues with delivery.
I have also had an email back from Pandora, who have confirmed that they will be pledging £50,000 of the profits from this charm to the Soldiers Trading Limited, which pays all its taxable profits to the Soldiers’ Charity (registered charity number 1146420 in England and Wales).
I think that this is a lovely design, and if it is a release in aid of charity, then so much the better! The Cherry Blossom murano is one of my favourite glass charms, and I love this variation on it.
What do you think of this (possibly) exclusive charm? Will you be trying to obtain one?
