Sooo, happy new year, everybody – today sees my first post of 2015, with a round-up of all the Pandora news for the upcoming month! The biggest event on the horizon is the release of the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2015 collection midway through January, plus a fun mini-release in celebration of the Chinese New Year. We’ve had a couple of months without any new releases from the brand, so it’s fun to have something to look forward to again!
Also included in my monthly news posts are the little bits and pieces of information/rumour that haven’t made it into their own post – we have a couple of those today, with some live shots from the Valentine’s collection and some more information on an international release for the Pandora Rose collection. :)
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2015 Collection
The highlight of the month has to be the release of the Valentine’s Day collection on the 15th of January. The collection features typically romantic themes, with lots of hearts and a soft pink colour scheme. For a full preview, please read my post here!
I also have a couple of live shots of the collection, from a press preview in Antwerp. The rings look really pretty, and you can also appreciate the delicate pastel pink of the new heart muranos (pictured on the bracelets, not the necklace).
In this shot, although it’s a little blurry, you can pick out the new gold pavé heart charm, alongside some other new two-tone pieces! You can also spot the new interlocking two-tone heart ring.
Most of the bloggers’ attention centred on the new rings; Pandora rings have become increasingly popular in the last year or so, and they do look great stacked. My eye is particularly drawn to the new Hugs and Kisses and Signature of Love rings – I know that cubic zirconia designs aren’t popular with some collectors right now, but they do look really pretty in these shots!
Pandora Chinese New Year 2015
The other Pandora release on the horizon is a mini-collection in celebration of the Chinese New Year! This set will debut in Asia on the 19th of January, and consists of a 14kt gold ingot charm and an adorable red enamel Chinese Doll pendant. For more details, see my preview here!
Pandora Rose International Release
Many international fans of the plated Pandora Rose collection were left disappointed last year when Pandora chose to release the collection in North America only – however, now comes some good news for us! Pandora have confirmed through their Facebook page that the Rose collection will be making it to more markets in SS15:
I can’t imagine that those markets won’t include the UK and Australia, seeing as they were two of the test markets for the collection back in April 2014. I’m really excited for the collection to launch here, as I have never seen it all properly in person, aside from the couple of pieces that have made their way into my own collection. ^^
Pandora have been pretty efficient at keeping the Valentine’s 2015 collection under wraps – while the stock images were leaked pretty early, we’ve not seen much in the way of live images or other sneak peeks. I’m dying to see what it looks like in person; the new pink murano and heart-clasp bracelet are top of my list!
Just a reminder that Pandora’s official winter sales in the UK and Australia are ongoing, and will run until mid-January. I opted to get all my bargains from the Republic of Jewels sale – and they’ve already arrived! They were very nicely packaged up and, all in all, I’m very happy with my loot! ;)
Oh and, finally, I’ve heard rumours from a couple of sources now that the next Pandora Disney collection for 2015 will be Disney princesses. I’d be very curious to see how they do that – must-have princesses for me would be Belle and Ariel for sure!
What are you looking forward to this month? Are you going to be getting any of the Valentine’s Day pieces?
