Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all the details on what’s coming up for April 2016! This month’s feature includes details on the North American gift sets for Pandora Mother’s Day 2016, live shots of the new Pandora Rose Spring 2016 collection, updates on the Pandora Summer 2016 release and more.
Going forward for this month on the blog, I have more updated SS16 previews coming your way – there are also more Pandora Spring reviews in the works, too, so keep an eye out for those! :)
Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 Launch
The main event of the month has to be the launch of the Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 collection, which is scheduled for the 14th of this month. I’ve said a couple of times how much I like this year’s Mother’s Day release – although it has plenty of the usual explicitly maternal-themed charms, it also has lots of charms with more general appeal. Flowers, cupcakes, hearts (of course) and two new safety chains – plus the use of pearl and mother-of-pearl! :D
For a full preview and live shots, have a mosey through the Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 tag.
The UK already received part of the Mother’s Day collection back in February, and we will get the remainder of the charms and jewellery on the 14th – it will be marketed as Pandora Spring 2016 Drop Two.
Pandora Mother’s Day Gift Sets for North America
As usual, there will be some Mother’s Day gift sets for North America (hat tip to my reader, Michele, who gave us this info!). These are a bit more unusual this year, in that they include some Pandora Spring 2016 pieces.
The main bracelet gift set includes the White Primrose clip and the Spring Time openwork charm, which have been delayed until Mother’s Day in North America. This is $225 CAD (no USD price yet) and comes with a jewellery box.
There will also be a gift set including the new Mother’s Day bangle and the Beloved Mother dangle, retailing for $145 CAD and packaged in a large bangel box:
Finally, the Bound by Love charm will be another limited edition special, with its own gift box. It will be $75 USD or $85 CAD:
Pandora Rose Spring 2016 Release
Making its début in North America alongside the Pandora Mother’s Day collection is the Pandora Rose Spring 2016 collection. I updated my preview with prices some time ago, so do check back there if you’re wondering.
However, I have heard that the UK will not be getting these new Rose pieces until Summer 2016. They’re not in the Spring/Mother’s Day 2016 catalogue that I just picked up from my local Pandora shop so that is looking increasingly likely :)
I found some live shots on social media from a Pandora preview in Ireland that show off the new Rose pieces really nicely. I love the Rose Primrose Meadow, but unfortunately my Pandora Rose bracelet is all full up now!
Pandora Summer 2016 Updates
Just a couple of brief updates for the Pandora Summer 2016 collection!
First of all, what I thought at first was going to be a new white Shimmer murano is actually just a very pale of Frosty Mint. I think I’d have preferred a new option of white murano glass, to be honest, as I love to contrast colours with plain white glass, but ‘frosty mint’ does sound potentially quite nice.
Second of all, the Pandora Club Charm 2016 will be coming out for Summer 2016 on the 2nd of June also. More info/pics on this soon! :)
The free bracelet promo for North America finishes today, but you’ve still got just under a day left to indulge in the Pandora sale running currently on Rue La La. If you need an invite code, you are welcome to use mine.
I indulged in both promos – of course. These are some photos from my helper in NA showing off my new pieces. :D For the bracelet promo, I went all-Disney and got both a Disney bracelet and a regular silver as my freebies. From Rue, I got a few classic silvers I’ve always quite liked and a floral necklace. I have to wait for them to make it across the pond to me in the UK still, but it’s fun to look at the photos in the meantime.
There are rumours about a UK Essence promo circulating as well, potentially happening later this month – if I hear more about this, I will update you of course! :)
I am still recovering from all my Pandora promo spending, but I am nevertheless so looking forward to the launch of the Mother’s Day charms on the 14th. It does seem very soon after the Spring 2016 collection – but I already have my eye on those two new safety chain designs, and that lovely new pearlescent enamel heart charm! I will probably pass on the rest of it, but there’s enough still on my wish list from Spring 2016 to keep me busy until Summer. ;)
What are you looking forward to this month? Are you going to get any Mother’s Day 2016 pieces?
