Today’s post brings another preview, with an in-depth overview of the upcoming Pandora Essence Spring 2016 collection! This release is only a small one, as has been typical for the Essence line recently, but it contains some interesting pieces – including the much-anticipated Essence safety chain.
These charms are most probably due out with the Spring 2016 collection on the 17th of March. Reports suggest that North America will be getting this collection, and possibly the Essence Autumn 2015 release, but I will let you know when/if I have confirmation on that!
There’ll be more Spring 2016 previews next week – I’m getting through them! ;)
Pandora Essence Spring 2016 Preview
First up, we have a brand new bracelet – a Pandora Essence bangle! It’s very slim in appearance and it doesn’t look like it has threads by the clasp, either. I find the existing bangle extremely light and easy to wear, but I guess this Essence one will be even better.
There is already a beaded Essence bracelet, but this popular design has now been scaled up into a necklace, too! I love the existing silver Essence necklace, as its chain is more dainty than that of the Moments necklace – this beaded version should work really nicely, as well.
Next up, we have a selection of four new Essence charms. The first two are reminiscent of the Moments Winter 2015 Geometric Facets – the Friendship charm is a delicate icy blue.
The Happiness charm is made from synthetic ruby.
In contrast, the Compassion and Loyalty charms feature abstract pavé designs, crafted from clear cubic zirconia.
However, most exciting for me is the arrival of a new Pandora Essence safety chain! It took two years but, after many many requests from fans, Pandora have finally obliged. ^^ This is 5cm in length, and features the signature Pandora crown logo on both sides of the chain. I expect it will look a lot daintier in person.
The Pandora Essence Spring 2016 collection might be smaller than ever, but it contains a fair bit of innovation and interesting design – what with a new bracelet, necklace and safety chain on the cards! It’s reassuring that, while Pandora have scaled the Essence line down, it’s not finished and new bracelets & concepts are being designed. :D I’ll definitely be getting the safety chain to protect my two-tone Essence bracelet, and the bangle is one I’ll be interested to learn more about, even if I don’t indulge in one right away.
On the other hand, the charms, while pretty, are not especially exciting for me – especially as the two coloured ones are very similar to existing Moments designs. They also seem like colours more suited to winter than to spring.
What do you think of this latest Essence collection? Has anything caught your eye?
