I previously reported that the new Pandora Disney collection for Spring 2015 was going to be Disney Princess-themed, and that is now confirmed! Readers should bear in mind that Pandora’s Disney collections are currently North American exclusives, and are not sold outside of the US and Canada. :( This collection should be due for release in mid-March.

Pandora Disney Spring 2015 Collection
Tapping into the popular Frozen trend, we have some Elsa and Anna princess charms. My favourite of these is the amazing snowflake pendant in the centre. The muranos also look gorgeous; it looks to me like there might be snowflake patterns in the glass?
The Snow White pieces feature bolder colours, with the classic red enamel apple motif. The Tinkerbell set is also cute, including a sweet murano to represent her iconic green dress.
Cinderella also gets a set, including an amazing pumpkin carriage. I imagine this will be expensive, as it features pavé detailing and a little gold crown – but it’s really cute!
Finally for princesses, Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Ariel from The Little Mermaid also will have their own set of charms. The bright yellow and green aren’t particularly to my taste, but their crown dangles and the lovely seashell are pretty. I love the concept of Belle’s rose, but would have preferred it as a more elegant dangle.
Finally, we have a universal Disney princess crown.
There will also be some more Mickey and Minnie pieces, of course.
These will include Mickey and Minnie rings, earrings, pendants and a bracelet.
Most exciting of the Mickey and Minnie pieces for me is the appearance of another safety chain! The details are hard to make out, however, but I assume there will be Mickey and Minnie detailing on the hearts.
However, most exciting of all the Disney pieces for me is the appearance of two Winnie the Pooh charms! :D These feature Pooh and Eeyore.
This seems to me an improvement on the Disney 2014 collection, which only featured Mickey and Minnie designs – it’s fantastic to see some fan-favourites, such as the Winnie the Pooh characters and the Disney Princesses. I can appreciate the perspective of those who think this collection is a bit childish in tone; but I do think that Disney itself is full of fun and colour, and that it’s probably inevitable that a collection based on their work is going to reflect that.
For the first time, it’s really disappointing to me that the Disney collection isn’t available in the UK and I will definitely be enlisting help to get hold of that adorable Eeyore charm. I also have my eye on a couple of the princess charms, including the Frozen snowflake and muranos!
What do you think of these new Disney charms?
