Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all the details on what’s coming up for August 2015! Included this month are some extra details and pictures for the brand’s upcoming Autumn 2015 releases for the Moments, Essence and Pandora Rose lines, plus all the month’s key dates.
In terms of upcoming blog posts, in addition to a few extra AW15 previews, I’ll be running reviews of my favourite Pre-Autumn 2015 pieces throughout the month, so look out for those! ^^
Pandora Autumn 2015 collection launch
It’s an exciting month for Pandora collectors, as the 27th of August sees the launch of the anticipated Autumn 2015 collection! Entitled Magnificent Kingdom, this release features signature colours of blush pink and olive green, plus the brand’s usual forest motifs. Please see my previous posts for both stock images and live shots of all the new jewellery.
I’ve also found my first proper live shot of the new faceted CZ beads – you can see the new Fascinating Olive charm in the top right of the image. It looks a lovely vibrant green:
The other news is that the Sweetheart charm, which originally came out exclusively in North America for Valentine’s Day, is seeing a wider launch with the Pandora Autumn 2015 collection – regions confirmed as getting it include Asia and Australia. Country-exclusive pieces never stay that way for long! ;)
Pandora Rose Autumn 2015 release
In addition to the regular Moments collection, the Pandora Rose Autumn 2015 release will also be making its debut on the 27th of August. While there are no new original designs this season for Rose, some of the brand’s most popular pieces, including the Galaxy openwork and the Love & Guidance pendant, are being launched in the Rose silver finish! :)
I’ve also updated my original preview with some high quality stock images, so do take another look at that if you’re interested in the new Rose pieces! Pandora Rose is currently only available in North America, the UK and Brazil, so those are the regions that I expect will be seeing this launch at the end of the month.
Pandora Essence Autumn 2015 release
Finally for new collection launches, the 27th of August also sees the launch of the stunning Pandora Essence Autumn 2015 collection. While it only features seven new designs, and no new values, this Essence collection nevertheless offers some beautiful new pastel shades, a pearl bead, and a couple of lovely new silver pieces, too. I’m very excited for this collection!
I am hearing rumours that the Essence Autumn 2015 collection may not be launched in North America this season – I am following this up, and will let you know should that prove to be the case.
Pandora Summer 2015 Leather Bracelets
This is just a quick update on the green and blue leather bracelets that came out with the Pandora Summer 2015 collection this May, as I’ve had a few questions about them lately. If you’re seeing them listed as ‘retired’ on your version of Pandora.net, then this is correct – Pandora have confirmed that they are limited edition pieces, and will be sold only while stocks last.
This was what Pandora UK told me when I e-mailed them:
“The green and blue leather bracelets which were introduced as part of our Spring/ Summer collections are a seasonal product therefore will only be available while stocks last and are now discontinued. We will launch several new colour leather bracelets with our collections each year which will be seasonal items and only available while stocks last.”
Consequently, if you’re wanting to indulge in either of these lovely shades (and I’d recommend it! :P), you’re advised to do it sooner rather than later. Interestingly, the suggestion seemed to be that this is something that they may continue to do with the leather bracelets going forward – create limited edition shades for special seasons. For a little inspiration, please see my review of the new Pandora green leather bracelet!
Pandora UK Ring Promo
Just a reminder that this is the last day for the Pandora UK ring promo, which offers a great deal – 3 for 2 on all Pandora rings, including their 14kt gold range!
I got my rings on Thursday, and I’m thrilled with them! I went for a couple of floral pieces and a heart stacking ring:
Unusually for me, I am actually most excited for the launch of the new Pandora Essence pieces at the end of the month, rather than the Moments selection. I’m head over heels with the new pearl Dignity bead, and the delicate pinks are also rather lovely!
I still haven’t seen the new Pre-Autumn 2015 collection, as I’m away again and none of the stores are selling it here until this Thursday coming. >:( I’m thinking that the new Ice Cream cone pendant would be great to add to my travel bracelet, which I’ve been working on over the last month or so. I’ve changed its look a bit – this is how it was before, on the left:
I’ve since added two Sea Glass muranos and the new Orchid pendant to give it a lot more colour and some of that fun, eclectic feel that I associate with travelling. ^^
Anyhoo, what are you most looking forward to from the upcoming Autumn 2015 collections? Are you excited for them?
