*UPDATED OCTOBER 2015 to reflect new information as to charms’ release date* Today’s post offers another Pandora preview, with a more detailed look at the upcoming limited edition Pandora Disney beads for Winter 2015! We already saw a sneak peek of these charms back in my Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2015 preview, but this post has some clearer pictures of them and details on pricing, too. :)
The charms feature two pavé Mickey & Minnie Mouse designs and would go best with all the other cute Mickey & Minnie pieces that Pandora have previously released, I think!
From what I understand, they will be released for Black Friday in North America, which this year falls on the 27th of November. Updated information now confirms that these beads will be released on the 29th of October with the regular Winter 2015 collection – apologies for any confusion! :)
Pandora Disney LE Charms for Winter 2015: Mickey & Minnie
These two charms are limited edition, and will retail for $90 USD each (I expect that this puts the Canadian RRP at $100). As pictured in the campaign image above, they will be sold with a white leatherette gift box.
They feature black, clear and red pavé detailing – although their eyes also puzzle me slightly. I assume that they are crafted from enamel. :S
While the idea of an exclusive Pandora Disney release is exciting, these particular designs are not to my taste. I much prefer the existing plain silver portrait charms of Mickey & Minnie, and I’m not sure how well these pavé versions would blend into a bracelet design that wasn’t based entirely around Disney. Happily enough, I love this year’s traditional Black Friday charm, which features a pavé snow globe design, so it’s not too disappointing that these won’t be on my wish list!
What do you think about these two designs? Will they be going on your wish list?
