It’s an exciting day on the Pandora calendar, as today sees the global launch of the Pandora Winter 2015 collections! Entitled Crystalised Embellishments, Pandora’s new winter collection features both cool icy motifs and warm holiday reds – there are also some new charms for the Pandora Disney line! There are no new pieces for the Rose and Essence lines with this release, however.
As usual, I am celebrating the launch with some lovely live shots! ^^ In this post, I’ve listed all the new releases that are out today and included some live photos and additional details for each! :)
Pandora Winter 2015 Collection Release
The Pandora Winter 2015 collection offers a mix of dramatic wintry blues, cheerful Christmas reds and some delicate pastels and feminine motifs – so there should be something for everyone. For stock images and other live shots, please have a little look through the Winter 2015 tag. :)
As usual, stores have been uploading some lovely live shots and inspiration for the new collection pieces to social media. This one beautifully shows off the new Blue Fascinating Iridescence murano, which looks like a combination of the Fascinating Aventurescent and the blue Fizzle muranos from last year. ;)
You can also pick out the new Abundance of Love pieces in this lovely design. I love the effect of putting them with some gold and two-tone charms, including the new 14kt Tumbling Hearts charm.
Here’s a selection of my other favourites!
We also have some gorgeous reader images, which give us some more detailed shots of the individual charms! They are also super useful in terms of size comparisons (note, for example, that the Christmas Puppy is quite a lot smaller than last year’s Christmas Bear). These are courtesy of Pandora Vaughn, so please do not reproduce without credit. :)
Pandora Winter 2015 Gift Sets
I’ve mentioned these UK bracelet bundles before, but just to confirm – the Ice Crystal charm will only be available in the UK as part of a bracelet bundle retailing at £125 for the time being (see below).
I was also told originally the the Dainty Bow safety chain and the Heart & Bow would only be available as part of a gift set – I am just checking on that. :) The Dainty Bow safety chain & clip and the Heart & Bow will initially only be available as part of this bracelet bundle for £199. I will be getting mine from abroad!
It also seems like a few pieces are missing from the UK’s current launch. I can’t see the new Abundance of Love pieces, synthetic ruby Geometric Facets, or the new opalescent Eternity spacer. :/
Just to recap on the North American sets – you can choose from the Glistening Wonder gift set, which features the Radiant Bloom, Layers of Lace clips and the new pavé clasp Moments bracelet.
Or, the Delicate Sentiments gift set, which offers the pearl earrings and necklace as a bundle. This is also available as a set in the UK.
Pandora Disney Winter 2015 Collection Release
It’s only a small selection of charms for the Disney Winter 2015 collection, but they are rather pretty nevertheless! The bulk of them consist of four new designs celebrating Princess Jasmine, including her signature murano, dress, tiara and slipper (for stock images and prices, please see my post here).
They are a rather gorgeous turquoise colour – the murano is particularly beautiful! It would look lovely with some two-tone pieces, I think.
In addition to the Princess Jasmine collection, two new limited edition Disney charms are coming out for the holidays. These are pavé Mickey and Minnie designs, complete with rather nice limited edition gift boxes. I’ll admit that I’m more fond of the gift boxes than I am of the charms themselves, so hopefully they’ll make a reappearance in the future!
Finally, there will be two of the new Disney Parks exclusive holiday 2015 charms making their début today, too. These are the Minnie’s Holiday Wreath and Minnie’s Holiday Bow charms (pictured in the campaign bracelet below). For a full overview of the AW15 Parks collection, please see my post here.
These designs are already available from the Disney Store, along with the limited edition Mickey and Minnie charms (although I don’t think that you get the special boxes with them if you order from Disney).
I have a very healthy wish list from this collection and will hopefully be getting to a store later today to check out all the new pieces! My favourites are the pretty bows and the cute festive pieces – my must-haves are the Dainty Bow clip & safety chain, the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the Christmas Puppy and the Holly murano. I have also already ordered the Disney Parks Minnie’s Holiday Wreath with its cute green tinsel design. ^^ The Jasmine pieces are beautiful, but I’m not quite sure that I have a use for more teal in my collection currently so I will shelve those for now. ;) I am starting my first Christmas bracelet this season (as I am sure you are all tired of hearing about by now) and will be featuring some festive ideas and reviews closer to December!
I am a little concerned to see some pieces missing from the UK’s initial launch, especially the Abundance of Love charm and spacer. All these partial collection releases are becoming confusing / frustrating!
Are you excited for these collections? Will you be purchasing anything?
