*UPDATE – a full preview of the Spring 2015 collection is now available!* Today’s post brings more exciting news on the Pandora Spring and Mother’s Day 2015 collections, with some live images of the upcoming charms and jewellery! The pictures I’ve found give a great overview of the range and styles of the new pieces due out; the theme for this year’s collection is once again flowers and butterflies, with more soft pastel shades. For additional teasers, check through the Spring 2015 tag. :)
The photos include a number of family-themed charms, too, so I imagine that some of these pieces are part of the Pandora Mother’s Day 2015 collection, too. However, if you are one of the many Pandora fans wanting more classic silver and two-tone designs, then a lot of the jewellery that’s being shown here is unfortunately not going to appeal to you.

Charms & Bracelets
First up, we have what looks to be a new kind of charm entirely, a small purple faceted bead at the centre of the bracelet design. It reminds me of a Pandora Essence or a Thomas Sabo karma bead – and it’s nice to see Pandora continue to develop the range of charms available for the Moments range. I can’t tell whether it’s glass or cubic zirconia, though.
There’s a corresponding pink faceted bead in the next shot. You can also see the new floral glass charm that featured in my last Spring 2015 teaser in action, plus a couple of new floral openworks.
One of the jewellery collections for the Spring releases seems to be a re-imagining of the Darling Daisy collection from last year, but with cubic zirconia detailing instead of white enamel, as evident in the floral clips on this bracelet. Here, you can also see a new pavé flower charm, plus a decorative charm featuring green cubic zirconia hearts. Plus, it looks to me like there might be a pavé apple, featuring red cubic zirconia detailing and a silver leaf on top…
There look to be a number of new enamel designs, with some baby pink butterfly charms and a pale purple floral charm. Additionally, there look to be some cubic zirconia slippers, with little bows attached to them.
Additionally, we have a pretty enamel floral clip, featuring clusters of little white flowers, which I like a lot, and a large purple pavé flower charm, which I like less, haha. You can also see some pink enamel floral detailing on the charms nearest the safety chain.
In this shot, there’s a selection of pavé charms being used as earrings. If you look to the bottom left, you’ll see a clear pavé charm with little butterfly silhouettes. This reminds me quite a lot of the 2014 Black Friday charm, with its Christmas tree pavé design. I really liked the pavé detailing in the Black Friday charm, and I like it again now. It might be a tad sparkly, but there’s also a pleasing delicateness to it, too.
However, in amongst all the flowers and the butterflies and the pastels, there’s this intriguing piece. It looks to me like a crocodile? I’m a little amazed, as it doesn’t strike me as very Pandora – but I’m also really pleased to see something original. It’s possibly a Pandora Summer 2015 collection piece.
These new heart charms look to me to be from the Mother’s Day 2015 collection – the centrepiece has ‘Mom’ written on it (I hope there’s a corresponding ‘Mum’ version for other regions). It’s bracketed by two gold heart lockets, similar in style to the new Valentine’s Day 2015 silver lock and key charm. You can also see a new heart locket dangle, plus a two-tone heart with cubic zirconia detailing.
Excitingly, there’s also a shot of a new Pandora bangle with a pavé heart clasp. This continues a current trend of Pandora’s to revamp existing bracelets with variations on the clasp. I’d also peg this new pavé heart clasp bracelet as a Mother’s Day 2014 release.
First up, we have a pretty floral ring that we’ve seen already in the previous teasers.
There are also new versions of the very popular Darling Daisy rings, but again with cubic zirconia detailing instead.
While these are pretty, I think I prefer the delicate look of the original white enamel pieces.
Having said that, there is a new white enamel ring pictured, with a cubic zirconia at its centre.
The pictures also reveal a new cubic zirconia butterfly ring, although unfortunately the top of it is cut off.
To the left of this picture, you can see a new hexagonal cubic zirconia ring.
Pandora Essence Spring 2015
There isn’t much on Essence in this preview, but we do have this one shot. The openwork charm in the centre looks new to me, but no sign of what value it represents so far.
The collections to me seem to be quite similar to last year’s – playing on seasonal motifs, with flowers for spring, hearts for Mother’s Day, etc. There are certain pieces I love, including that pretty floral murano (although I would have loved to see some more muranos to complement it), the pavé butterfly silhouette charm and the additional Darling Daisy pieces.
Having said that, it’s a little disappointing to once again see rehashes of existing designs, which seems to be becoming something of a trend for Pandora. There is also a really heavy emphasis on pavé detailing and enamel, which would be fine if there were more traditional-style charms to complement them. I’d like more character charms, ones which actually represent something. Of course, I’m sure there is still more to be revealed. :) And there is the crocodile, too, haha.
What do you think of these live images? Can you spot anything new that I’ve missed?
