*UPDATED with GBP pricing* We’ve had a lot of Disney excitement in the Pandora world lately, but today I want to go back to Pandora’s upcoming Spring 2015 collection, with a look at some individual high-res images of the new charms! There’s just under two weeks to go before the debut of this rather lovely collection, which features Pandora’s typical floral motifs for spring, plus some adorable nature and hobby-themed charms. I also have some stills from Pandora’s official campaign video for Spring, which offer HQ live images of the new jewellery!
The Pandora Spring 2015 collection is due out worldwide on the 12th of March. To see the accompanying jewellery for this collection, check out my preview here. For live shots and other additional details, please have a scroll through the Spring 2015 tag! I’m afraid I still only have details of the US and Canadian pricing – no info on GBP, AUD, etc as of yet. :(
First up, we have two new bracelets for Spring 2015 – the first is a new double-wrap version of the metallic silver leather bracelet. This is $50 USD or $55 CAD.
Secondly, we have a pretty traditional-style bangle, with little heart silhouettes and pavé detailing. This is pricier at $100 USD or $110 CAD.
The Daisy Meadow offers a slightly different take on the classic daisy, with soft lilac enamel detailing. It’s $40 USD/$45 CAD or £45.
The Darling Daisy collection was very popular for Spring 2014, and this year’s Spring collection sees two new addition Darling Daisy pieces. The first is a new clip, which features delicate clusters of white enamel daisies. It’s $55 USD/$60 CAD or £45.
There is also a new Darling Daisies spacer, which is cheaper at $35 USD/$40 CAD or £30. I love both of these new Darling Daisy pieces and they’re definitely on my wish list!
The Wild Flowers murano is one of the collection’s most-anticipated charms, and I hope it’s as beautiful in person. As you can see, each flower has a clear cubic zirconia at its centre – this is laid over yellow glass. It is $45 USD/$50 CAD or £35.
You can see two examples of it nice and clearly in the following shot from the campaign video:
The new Dazzling Daisy series offers pavé versions of the Darling Daisy collection. The Dazzling Daisy Meadow openwork is my favourite of these new pieces, with its trailing floral design. It’s priced at $60 USD/$65 CAD or £55.
The Dazzling Daisy pendant is $45 USD/$50 CAD or £45. I’d love to have seen a Darling Daisy version of this, with white enamel.
There’s also a new Dazzling Daisy clip, priced at $55 USD/$60 CAD or £45.
The Dazzling Daisy features bold pavé detailing and is correspondingly expensive at $75 USD/$85 CAD or £60.
In addition to all the daisies, there’s a matching Primrose collection for Spring 2015! The Sparkling Primrose has a lovely graded colour effect, with light purple and pink pavé detailing. It’s $75 USD/$85 CAD or £60.
The plain silver Primrose openwork is more affordable at $25 USD/$30 CAD or £20.
I love the Primrose pendant, which is accentuated with a delicate clear stone at its centre. I always imagine primroses as being yellow, but the soft white Pandora have gone for is admittedly very pretty and more versatile. This is $45 USD / $50 CAD or £35.
The Primrose Meadow charms come in both pink and white, and are priced at $60 USD/$65 CAD or £55. I’d love to add the pink version to an oxidised bracelet; the contrast between pastels and the oxidised chain is always stunning.
Nature in general is a big theme for the Spring collection and, in addition to all the flowers, we have some sweet butterfly pieces! The Fluttering Butterflies charm features baby pink enamel detailing, with butterfly silhouettes cut-outs. It’s $40 USD/$45 CAD or £45.
There’s also a clear pavé version of the charm, which is pricier at $60 USD/$65 CAD or £55. I really quite like these pieces, as I love the look of the butterflies in motion.
The Sparkling Butterfly pendant completes the butterfly series, and is priced at $45 USD/$50 CAD or £35.
The Sparkling Ladybug has taken me by surprise by becoming one of my new favourites from this collection! I don’t usually like the new ‘sparkling’ replacements of original Pandora designs, but this ladybird is just too cute. It will retail for $60 USD/$65 CAD or £55.
The Red Pavé Apple is in a similar style to the Ladybug, with a pretty fresh contrast between the green pavé stones of the leaf and the red apple itself. It’s $75 USD/$85 CAD or £55.
The Green Lucky Clover is the perfect good luck charm, and will cost $65 USD/$75 CAD or £55.
The Alligator charm is this collection’s slightly odd-ball inclusion, as it doesn’t fit obviously with the other styles and motifs. The charm itself is nicely detailed, however, and is reasonably priced at $45 USD/$50 CAD or £35.
Hobbies & Travel
The Piano charm is perhaps the most impressive of the collection in terms of its beautiful, classic-looking detail. I haven’t played the piano for about… seven years, but I’m still tempted to get this one as it’s really very lovely. It’s $40 USD / $45 CAD or £30.
Some have found the Graduate Owl a little odd-looking, but he is one of my favourites from the Spring collection! <3 It’s a shame that his hat limits his versatility, as he’d be a nice charm in his own right without it. However, you could also get it to represent being a teacher or just wisdom/learning as a value. His RRP is $55 USD/$60 CAD or £45.
The Mountain Dog represents Pandora’s latest dog charm, following on from the Autumn 2014 collection’s Labrador. I absolutely love that Pandora are continuing to make more dog breeds – I just need a spaniel charm to represent my babies, both past and present. :) This is priced at $40 USD/$45 CAD or £30.
The I Love Cooking charm offers much-requested hobby charm and retails for $40 USD/$45 CAD or £30. However, while I do, actually, love cooking, my real passion is baking and I’d love to see something from Pandora like Chamilia’s in the kitsch collection.
Next up, we have another ballet charm: a sweet bejewelled slipper design, priced at $45 USD/$50 CAD or £45.
There’s also a more charm for music-lovers in general: it features a music note, a guitar and a guitar pick with a cute little red enamel heart to give it a hint of colour. The I Love Music charm is $50 USD/$55 CAD or £35.
The Finish Line pendant features black and white enamel detailing and will cost $45 USD/$50 CAD or £35.
The Game, Set, Match is perfect for tennis fans (I do love Wimbledon!) and is set to cost $35 USD/$40 CAD or £35.
The Coffee Lovers charm is one of the collection’s most-anticipated charms, and it’s a nicely affordable silver piece at $40 USD/$45 CAD or £35. I would have loved a more traditional coffee mug or cup but I do like the originality of this take on a coffee charm. It’s a little heavy-looking for a dangle, but I think its quirky design saves it!
The Chinese Doll is an adorably happy little charm, with her lovely bright red dress! This charm was released exclusively in Asia back in January to celebrate the CNY, but is now being released worldwide for Spring 2015 – RRP is $45 USD or $50 CAD. I already have this piece and you can read my review here.
The Guard my Heart is another of many British-themed offerings from Pandora, but its detail and character make it stand out as one of my favourites to date! His face is mostly hidden by his hat, but he does have rather a cute nose sticking out from under it. ^^ This charm is $45 USD/$50 CAD or £35.
To complement the Guard my Heart dangle, Pandora are releasing the British Heart Flag. In the North American catalogue however this is listed with the Summer 2015 collection – in other regions, it will be released for Spring. :) It’s £35.
Next up, we have a heart flag charm for New Zealand as well! This charm is not listed in the Spring/Summer North American catalogue at all and so I don’t think it will be available there at all. This will be £35
Finally for travel pieces, Pandora are releasing another charm in the their National Icon series, with a cute representation of Prague’s Charles Bridge. Each charm in this series has a little heart tucked away somewhere in its design, and you can just make out one on the base of this charm. This will retail for $45 USD / $50 CAD or £40.
Exciting we have a new type of charm debuting for the Moments range. These are the Petite Facets charms, which are being released for Spring in pink and purple. They are made from synthetic quartz and look quite like the Essence beads, offering a different way to inject some colour into your bracelet designs!
The live shots of the pink Petite Facets that I’ve seen make it look absolutely lovely; the pink appears more of a milky, subtle shade.
Both versions are $40 USD/$45 CAD or £35.
The Inspiration Within spacer will be out in two new shades for Spring – pink and purple. Both spacers will be $30 USD or $35 CAD.
Next up, we have some familiar-looking muranos! ;) These are the Sea Glass muranos, which were released in North America only back in 2013. The exciting news is that they will now see a wider release for Spring 2015! They feature faceted glass and pretty marbled colours. I already have the Shoreline Sea Glass murano, which I managed to acquire on a holiday to Antigua.
However I’m also considering treating myself to the Tropical Sea Glass, which offers a beautiful mixture of greens, blues and a dash of purple. It would look lovely with my teal faceted murano I think.
There are four new 14kt gold charms being released for Spring 2015, which is good news for gold lovers! The catch is that these all already exist as silver designs. However, despite the fact that there are no original new gold designs, I think these are good choices – they are pretty and contemporary, offering some of Pandora’s most popular designs in 14kt gold for the first time.
The Love of my Life clip is priced at $350 USD/$385 CAD or £350.
The Light as a Feather is $400 USD/$440 CAD or £325.
The Inspiration Within spacer is $215 USD/$240 CAD or £140.
Finally for the gold selection is the Gold Ingot, which was also released exclusively in Asia back in January to celebrate the Chinese New Year – it is now seeing a wider release for Spring 2015. However, this charm is not listed in the North American catalogue, and therefore I do not think it will be released there.
If you’ve read any of my previous coverage of the Spring 2015 collection, then you’ll be aware of how enthusiastic I am for these new pieces! I Admittedly it would be nice to see Pandora be a little more adventurous in their themes for each new collection, and to deviate from their dependency on florals and butterflies for Spring – but there are some wonderfully quirky designs included in this set, and the flower charms are really very sweet.
My particular favourites from this collection are many: they include the new Darling Daisy clip and spacer, the Primrose Meadow charms, the Sparkling Ladybug, the Graduate Owl and the Mountain Dog. The Coffee Lovers charm is also high on my list, as is the rather adorable Guard my Heart. Which is rather a significant chunk of the collection – oh dear! ;) I think I’ll be doing the principal of my Pandora spending for the year on this collection, haha. I’m going to be working on two bracelet designs for Spring: an oxidised bracelet with delicate pastel shades, and a Pandora Rose bracelet with white enamel pieces.
Are you excited for the release of this collection? Which pieces are you planning on getting?
