Today’s post brings one of my final Pandora previews for the season, with an in-depth look at the Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 jewellery! This year’s Mother’s Day collection offers a welcome return to the use of pearl and mother-of-pearl, with some lovely floral designs. I’ll be offering some HQ images of the new jewellery, plus a closer look at campaign imagery for the whole collection!
If you’re looking for a preview of the Mother’s Day 2016 charms, you can find them in my separate preview here.
On a slight tangent, in case you missed it, I posted a little sneak peek on Instagram of my first indulgences from the Pandora Spring 2016 collection! I’ll be reviewing the bracelet later in the week. :D
I love these campaign images for this year’s Mother’s Day collection. They are surprisingly low-key and natural, given Pandora’s usual Mother’s Day campaigns. They really emphasise the prettiness of each set of jewellery (the Luminous Florals, the Sparkling Love Knot, that lovely pearlescent heart).
Necklaces & Pendants
The Luminous Hearts set features a mother-of-pearl heart & 14kt gold heart combined – it’s been some time since Pandora used genuine materials such as pearl or mother-of-pearl, and it’s refreshing to see that here!
The Family Tree necklace is a stand-alone piece, with no matching ring or earring – it will come on a 80cm chain.
There are two lovely pendants coming out, too – the mother-of-pearl Luminous Floral pendant is particularly gorgeous, and it would be great on a bracelet as well as on a necklace.
The Sparkling Love Knot pendant already came out in February in the UK – it’s very sparkly in person, but smaller than you’d maybe imagine.
The Infinite Shine ring offers a simple plain silver design, with the infinity symbol looping over again.
The Luminous Floral ring has a puffy, mother-of-pearl flower design, with a cubic zirconia centre. This one should be lovely in person, and I like that Pandora have gone with some pretty flowers for Mother’s Day, instead of the usual ubiquitous hearts.
Speaking of hearts, we have the Luminous Hearts ring to match the necklace.
The Delicate Sentiments ring offers a statement twist on the Winter 2015 ring of the same name, which had a gorgeous pearl accent. This version is all pavé, and has a thick, interwined band.
Finally, the Sparkling Love Knot ring is another rather sparkling affair. I like the central knot design, but wish the band itself wasn’t quite so thick.
As I mentioned previously, Pandora has dubbed 2016 ‘year of the earrings’, and these new offerings are rather pretty. I have yet to indulge in any Pandora earrings – I have a more eclectic taste when it come to earrings, for some reason – but I particularly like the use of pearl and MOP here.
The Luminous Florals earrings come both as studs and as a larger, tendril design.
The Luminous Hearts are also available as earrings.
Finally, we have the chic Sparkling Love Knot earrings, offering a more compact version of the ring and pendant.
I’ve said it before, but I think this year’s Mother’s Day 2016 charms are particularly great, with lots of designs that also appeal to those who don’t have children yet – we have pearls, flowers, cupcakes and more! Here, the jewellery is also notable for the pearl and mother-of-pearl, I think, and the Luminous Florals jewellery set is particularly nice.
What do you think of these jewellery pieces? Will you be getting anything?
