*UPDATED June 2015* Today’s post brings my first Pandora preview in a while, with an in-depth look at the upcoming Pandora Pre-Autumn 2015 collection! ^^ Featuring a selection of travel and pet-themed charms, the Pre-Autumn release may only be small, but it nevertheless offers some cute and quirky pieces. Read on for high-resolution images and prices!
This collection is scheduled for release worldwide on the 30th of July. All prices are given in USD.
Pandora does nothing better than it does romance and, consequently, it’s no surprise to see them release a charm that represents both love and travel! The Travel Together Forever charm is perfect for couples who love to travel, with its soft pink enamel and hidden heart motif. It will retail for $70 USD.
I may already have the original silver camera, but the new Sentimental Snapshots charm is rather tempting. I love that they have used a gemstone to create the lens, while the detailing on the back and top of the camera is also pretty amazing! It’s priced at $50 USD.
The Around the World charm offers an openwork globe design, studded with a little cubic zirconia heart. It’s priced at $40 USD.
The Guardian of Travel pendant would make a rather lovely lucky talisman, with its Saint Christopher design and just a little dusting of cubic zirconia on the bail. It will retail for $45.
The Wish You Were Here charm features a cute postcard design, with the Eiffel Tower on one side and the words ‘Wish you were here’ on the other. My OH and I went to Paris last year, so this would have been perfect for us then haha. It’s priced at $45 USD.
*UPDATED JUNE 2015* This last stock image was not included in the North American catalogue, but it looks to be up for release in other regions, including Europe and Russia. It’s a rather cute ice cream cone charm – although I’d have liked to see some pastel enamel detailing for this one.
While we have had numerous new dog charms over the last few collections, the Curious Cat finally offers something for those with feline friends! This charm is nicely affordable at $30 USD.
We also have a cute canine portrait, with a cheerful smile and rather sweet floppy ears. It will also retail for $30 USD.
Alternatively, the adorable Woof charm is a more universal charm for dog-lovers. I absolutely love the detail of the little pawprint and heart engraved on it. This is priced at $35 USD.
Of course, there will be a corresponding version for cat lovers too! ^^ The Meow charm will also be sold for $35 USD.
The Paw Prints charm offers a more sparkling option, and is correspondingly more expensive at $65 USD.
For those who like their pavé detailing a little less full-on, the I Love My Pet charm features a rather cute pavé paw-print on one side of the heart and some engraving on the other. It will retail for $50 USD.
Finally the I Love My Pets charm will retail for $55 USD.
This collection, while small, seems to me rather an improvement on last year’s Pre-Autumn selection of cubic zirconia pendants. It has a great deal of quirky, sweet designs, and both the travel and pet collections are sure to be winners for Pandora, I think.
I’m particularly fond of the new Woof and Devoted Dog charms, but I already have the Dog House, Zodiac Dog pendant and the dog bone pendant. I’m not sure that I have room in my collection for another dog charm, no matter how much I adore my puppy. :P As for the travel pieces, I really love enamel detailing, and so I’m greatly tempted by the new Sentimental Snapshots camera, while the Wish You Were Here postcard and the Travel Together Forever are both very sweet. I’ll have to see them in person before making any final decisions! ^^
What do you think of these new charms? Will you be adding any to your collection?
