Recently there was a fair bit of debate about a mystery silver animal charm pictured in some Pandora Summer 2016 live shots – the pictures from the event were a little blurry or too far away, and it was hard to tell exactly what it was. Theories included a dragon, a fawn, a rabbit, a kangaroo and more!
Thanks to help from a reader, who has managed to scan in a catalogue shot for me last week, I can now confirm that the mystery Pandora Summer 2016 animal is indeed a kangaroo! :)
The Pandora Summer 2016 collection is due out on the 2nd of June – for a full preview of the other charms and jewellery coming out with this release, please see my post here. Otherwise, read on to see the stock image for this rather sweet kangaroo charm! ^^
Pandora Summer 2016 Kangaroo Charm
The new kangaroo charm is a sweet design, featuring a mother kangaroo with her baby in her pouch. It’s very similar to the retired Pandora kangaroo charm, which also featured a mother and baby – but the details on this updated charm are much smoother and cuter, I think, especially in terms of the baby.
It will retail for 29 euros. This charm was not pictured in the North American pre-release catalogue, so I guess it is not up for release there – for now, at least.
I like this new design, and it gets extra brownie points for being plain silver, affordable and in keeping with Pandora’s classic animal charms, with lots of specific detail. :D This is a design that particularly appeals to me for personal releases, too, as my brother left for Australia for a year last month and this charm would be great as a keepsake/commemoration of his adventure.
What do you think of this new kangaroo charm? Is it going on your wish list?
