It’s an exciting day for Pandora fans in the UK, as today sees the release of select pieces from the Pandora Mother’s Day 2015 collection! As Mothering Sunday is celebrated on March the 15 this year in the UK, Pandora have chosen to release a portion of the Mother’s Day 2015 collection early to coincide with it. What follows is an overview of what’s included in this early release, with pricing.
The pieces coming out today are unsurprisingly very maternal in theme – they feature a lot of hearts and familial motifs. As for the rest of the collection, we’ll have to wait until the 9th of April like the rest of the world. I am going to try and see if I can make a stop in Pandora today to see the new pieces – if I do, I will upload some live shots later on this evening! :)
Pandora Mother’s Day 2015 UK Release
The Always in my Heart bangle is a limited edition piece, featuring pavé detailing on one side of its clasp and the Pandora logo on the other. Thankfully it’s being sold on its own and not in a gift set – it’s priced at £75.
The Always in my Heart charm is one of the most-anticipated charms of the collection, with its pretty two-tone and pavé styling. It is also limited edition, and is priced at £65.
The We Love You card charm is a very cute offering, with simple two-tone detailing on the front and a Mother’s Day message inside. It’s £60.
The Mother and Friend clip is plain silver, and costs £35.
The Pandora Motherly Love openwork features the word ‘M♥M’ and some pretty heart detailing. It is priced at £30.
The Mother’s Rose pendant has a sweet enamel rose detailed in pink on each side, and includes an inscription that reads: ‘First my mother, forever my friend’ – one of this collection’s motifs. It’s priced at £55.
The Centre of my Heart pendant is £45.
The Mother’s Pride spacer features cubic zirconia heart detailing and costs £25.
The From Us charm is plain silver, and retails for £35.
The Sparkling Love ring is also included in this mini-release, and is priced at £55.
Finally, the remaining pieces of the Sparkling Love set will be sold in a gift set for Mother’s Day 2015. This includes the earrings, the pendant and a necklace chain, presented in a small jewellery box – it costs £99. The individual pieces will probably be made available on their own later in the year.
*UPDATED* Live Shots
I didn’t make it to the Pandora store today to see the new pieces, but my OH managed to take a few quick snaps on his lunch break. I’ll be going tomorrow hopefully, so I will get some pictures of my own then.
The Mother’s Rose features a very pretty pink enamel design – I’d love this one, if it didn’t have the explicitly maternal message on it.
You can see the Centre of my Heart pendant in this shot.
The new bangle also looks lovely in the live shots that are emerging of it. I’m trying not to be too tempted! ;)
*UPDATED… AGAIN!* So I finally got into town to go and see the new charms. They are prettier than the stock images in real life, but I still don’t think any of them are for me.
This shot includes most of them. On the second row, you can see the new Always in my Heart LE charm (so pretty!), the Mother’s Pride spacer, and the We Love You card (which is open). On the third, you can see the new From Us charm (albeit upside down, it wouldn’t stay up), and the Mother & Friend clip (which has some cute heart detailing around the closure).
Here we have the new Always in my Heart bangle, with its pavé heart clasp. On it are styled the new LE Always in my Heart charm and the two new Mother’s Day spacers.
Here, we have the new clip and the enamel Mother’s Rose again. I mostly included this because you can see the new in-store decorations for the Spring 2015 collections – white flowers and ladybirds! :D
Finally, you can see the new Motherly Love openwork here. It looks surprisingly pretty in combination with these soft pink and floral pieces.
Last year’s early UK release for Mother’s Day saw a mix of more explicitly maternal charms and general floral pieces; this year, the selection is almost exclusively focused on Mother’s Day specifically. Consequently, while there are some lovely charms on offer, I’m not sure that there’s anything for me. I’m trying to cut down on the number of bracelets I buy and, while the Always in my Heart LE charm is gorgeous, I don’t think I need another heart charm. We’ll see if those resolutions hold out. ;)
My main thought, however, is to note how high the average price is from this collection. The Motherly Love openwork is £30, and the plain silver From Us charm is £30. It’s a little sad to see the prices creeping up.
You can purchase the Pandora Mother’s Day collection from retailer John Greed Jewellery.
What do you think of this selection for the UK? Are any on your wish list?
