*UPDATED 01/03/16 with prices* Today’s post finally brings a preview of the Pandora Spring 2016 collection, with stock images for the upcoming charms! This year’s release is entitled Poetic Blooms, and invokes the beauty of Pandora’s most popular existing floral and natural designs – there’s a wealth of cherry blossoms, daisies, primroses and butterflies. The collection is due out on the 17th of March, so there’s a little while to wait yet!
This preview encompasses just the Moments charms & bracelets that are coming out for Pandora Spring 2016 –
I have annotated the charms with their names, where I have them, but I don’t have the prices for these yet. *UPDATED* I now have pricing for all the charms in USD and euros. Enjoy!
Before we start: You are welcome to share these collages, but I do ask that you please leave the morapandorablog.com URL in place on the image and the watermarks intact! :)
Pandora Spring 2016 Preview
First up for the Pandora Spring 2016 collection, we have the new Smooth Silver Clasp bracelet, which is a new thread-less version of Pandora’s classic charm bracelet with a spherical clasp. It’s essentially a Pandora Essence bracelet scaled-up for the Moments line.
Accompanying this bracelet, we have the Shining Elegance spacer-clips, pictured in the collage below. These are hinged and silicone-lined, and are designed to section off threadless bracelets such as the new Smooth Silver Clasp bracelet, the bangle and the leather bracelets.
There are also some other more generic decorative pieces, with a pink and purple colour scheme. My favourites of these are the gorgeous shimmering muranos, in pastel pink and purple! It looks like there’s a lovely glitter running underneath that glass.
Prices are as follows:-
Purple & Pink Shimmer muranos – $50 USD / 39€
Shining Elegance clips (silver) – $45 USD / 39€
Shining Elegance (gold) – $285 USD / 199€
Shimmering Droplets – $70 USD / 65€
Radiant Hearts (gold) – $400 USD / 349€
There are a lot of new floral designs, continuing the pink & purple colour scheme. Pandora have written themselves that the collection pays homage to previous popular floral designs, as evidenced most prominently in the Poetic Blooms jewellery. Many of these new charms will seem quite familiar to you as a consequence!
However, the Blooming Dahlia, Apple Blossom, Floral Daisy Lace and purple Forget-Me-Not charms represent new floral designs from Pandora.
Prices are as follows:-
Pink Primrose clip – $40 USD / 35€
Poetic Blooms – $65 USD / 55€
Poetic Blooms heart – $60 USD / 49€
Poetic Blooms pendant – $50 USD / 39€
Cherry Blossom clip – $65 USD / 55€
Sparkling Apple Blossom – $80 USD / 65€
Blooming Dahlia pendant – $55 USD / 45€
Blooming Dahlia clip – $60 USD / 49€
White Primrose clip – $60 USD / 55€
Dazzling Floral – $85 USD / 75€
Floral Daisy Lace clip – $40 USD / 39€
Floral Daisy Lace pendant – $35 USD / 29€
Forget-me-not charm – $80 USD / 65€
Forget-me-not pendant – $50 USD / 45€
Forget-me-not spacer – $45 USD / 35€
The Blooming Dahlia clip looks especially pretty in this live shot from Pandora:
Also honouring past designs are the nature-themed charms. These continue the pink enamel colour scheme, with a mixture of motifs taken from the existing Dazzling Daisy, Petite Butterfly and Dragonfly Meadow designs. The stand-out charm for me from these designs is the beautiful Flower Garden murano, which looks just as gorgeous in the live images.
The Bunny is the newest addition to Pandora’s range of cake-pop-inspired animal charms, and is one of my favourites so far!
Prices for the US are as follows:-
Flower Garden – $55 USD / 39€
Dazzling Daisy Fairy – $60 USD / 59€
Spring Time – $50 USD / 49€
Remarkable Rabbit – $30 USD / 29€
Dazzling Butterfly (Fluttering Butterflies) – $55 USD / 45€
Spring Garden – $60 USD / 49€
Next up, we have the new Vintage alphabet series
(obviously there will be A-Z, but I only have the first five images for some reason). *UPDATED 04/02/16* I now have the full set of stock images! :D The existing CZ letter pendants are being retired in many regions, and these seem to be Pandora’s next go at letter charms. ^^ These are my favourite alphabet charms Pandora have done to date; I love their old-fashioned, quaint style and I’m sure they’ll be popular!
You can enlarge the collage to see all the details. These will be $45 USD / 35€ each.
Finally, we have this Bride & Groom (Our Special Day) charm to finish off this collection! This didn’t really fit with any of the other themes – one side features the bride’s wedding dress, and the other the groom’s tuxedo. These are in the same openwork ‘button’ style that Pandora introduced in Autumn 2015, with cut-out hearts around the edge of the charms.
This is $50 USD / 39€.
The pieces that I like from this collection I really like – I am excited to try out the new smooth silver Moments bracelet, along with the silicone spacers (I’m hoping that the Poetic Blooms/Cherry Blossom spacer is also silicone-lined!). I also have to have the Flower Garden murano and both of the Pink & Purple shimmer muranos, which all look beautiful. :D The Dazzling Daisy Fairy is pretty, too, despite being derivative – and the Spring Time pendant disc charm with the pink enamel is also cute.
Nevertheless, I would like to see more charms that are quirky or character-based, like the London Guard or Ladybird charms from last year’s Spring collection. On that note – I think that this selection represents all the charms coming out for Spring 2016 (I was told this was all there is for Spring), but if I find anything else I will update this post! :)
What do you think of this year’s Spring selection? Have any made it on to your wish list?
