Today brings a round-up of various pieces of information on the Pandora Valentine’s Day and Spring 2015 collections, including some lovely Valentine’s live shots, details on Valentine’s promotions and some more hints at what’s included in the upcoming Spring collection. There is quite a bit in this post, so hopefully it’s not too crowded! ;)
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2015 collection begins to hit the stores!
It’s been an exciting few days in the Pandora world as stores across various regions – including North America, Australia and the UK – have started to sell the new Valentine’s Day collection! The official release date is the 15th of January, but stores often receive their stock prior to the official date. Not all stores are selling before Thursday, though, so be sure to check with your store before visiting.
It’s a pleasant surprise to see stores in the UK selling the collection early, too! Pandora UK usually keeps strictly to its release date, but I’m quite enjoying the excitement of seeing the charms arrive a little early here. Stores are not allowed to market the collection until the official release date, however, so you won’t see Pandora.net update until then.
As ever, the arrival of the collection means that we get a closer look at the new pieces! I still love the look of the two-tone Message of Love charm, which looks so pretty in person, and I’m also really drawn to the plain silver Together Forever pendant, too. I hadn’t really noticed it before, but it’s lovely!
I already ordered one of the gorgeous Pink Hearts muranos from an online retailer, and it arrived today! :D It’s a beautiful shade of pink, and not peachy in the least.
Pandora LE Sweetheart charm
It is looking increasingly likely that Pandora’s limited edition Sweetheart charm for Valentine’s Day 2015 is going to be another North American exclusive. No other regions seem to have received this charm so far, and reports are suggesting that they are not going to.
The other notable thing is how different the charm looks in person. I found these live shots online from Taobao, which reveal the pink CZs around the heart to be in reality more of a shade of pale lavender. However if anyone has found any more pictures, please feel free to share! I do like the look of this charm better from the live images, but it’s still not really to my taste.
Pandora Valentine’s Pink Heart Box GWP
I also have some more details on Pandora’s upcoming jewellery box GWP for Valentine’s Day! This year, it’s a heart jewellery box in a beautifully-soft shade of pink. This is set to be offered in a number of regions this Valentine’s Day, including the UK and Australia, although it will not be available in North America. Collectors in the US & Canada will instead be offered a series of gift sets, each of which will come with its own cream heart-shaped box.
- In Australia and New Zealand, this GWP will be available from the 29th of January until the 14th of February, with a spend of $120 AUD or $150 NZD.
- I’m not sure on the promotion dates for the UK yet, but the spend will be £125.
I really like this box (I love pastel pinks), and so I’m planning on reserving my bigger Valentine’s purchases until I can get it! <3 It would be an absolutely beautiful way to present a Valentine’s Day present.
Pandora Spring 2015 Details
So, I don’t have any more pictures of the collection yet. :( What I do have, however, is the North American list of some of the charms and jewellery coming out for Spring (not Mother’s Day) and so I can share some more tasters of what’s coming next. We have already seen a few of the upcoming pieces in my posts on the Spring 2015 sneak peeks and live shots, and it looks like the themes are going to be really very similar to last year’s: there are a lot of new floral and butterfly pieces.
These will include a new Primrose collection, in addition to the new Daisy pieces we have already seen. Other confirmed charms include the Alligator, the Red Pavé Apple and Ballet Slippers. The two faceted Essence-like charms look to be only available in pink and purple for now.
Completely unseen charms include:
- Green clover charm
- Sparkling Ladybug
- ‘I love Music’ charm
- ‘Coffee Lovers’ charm
- ‘I Love Cooking’ charm
- Mountain Dog
- Graduate Owl
- ‘Finish Line’ charm, which I assume will be for runners
The only 14kt charm I have seen listed is a new version of the Inspiration Within pavé spacer. There will also be new silver versions of that spacer, in pink and purple.
Pandora Chinese Doll
Finally, I have a few more details on the international release of the Chinese Doll charm from Pandora’s Chinese New Year 2015 set; it will vary depending on your region. In Australia, it is being released with the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2015 collection on the 15th of January. In North America, it’s listed with the rest of the Spring 2015 collection, so it looks like it is coming out there in March – it’s priced at $45 USD. I found this live shot of her from Australia on Instagram; she looks so cute!
I haven’t been to my local store yet to see the new charms, but I am actually much more enthused for the Valentine’s collection having seen all the lovely live shots that have started to appear online. <3 I’m also desperate for the pretty Valentine’s pink heart box; I don’t own any of the official Pandora jewellery boxes, as I use the Stackers boxes, but it would be nice to have a little travel box. :) I’m hoping it’s that kind of size!
In terms of the Spring 2015 listings, I am really curious to see the new coffee charm, the new primrose and butterfly pieces, plus the Mountain dog! Nothing absolutely leaps out to me as a must-have, but hopefully they will be nicely executed. :D They do seem to be sticking to very similar themes for each collection at the moment; primarily seasonal pieces, accompanied by charms representing various hobbies, music and sport in particular.
Are you going to get any of the new Valentine’s charms? What do you think of the listed charms for Spring?
