Today is another big day in the Pandora world, as the Mother’s Day 2016 collection is launched today! It has been less than a month since the Spring 2016 collection launch, and I still have a couple of things I want to get from that release – but that doesn’t stop me from being excited for this one. :D
If you’re in North America, the Pandora Rose Spring 2016 collection is also released today, which is a nice bonus!
The UK got some of this release early back in February, due to our Mother’s Day falling earlier in the year. The rest of the jewellery coming out tomorrow is being marketed as the Pandora Spring 2016 Drop II as a consequence.
As usual, I’m celebrating with lots of live shots of all the new pieces and a couple of small updates! <3
Pandora Mother’s Day 2016 Release
This year’s Mother’s Day collection offers a sweet mixture of flowers, maternal pieces, hearts and other fun charms, such as a cupcake or a perfume bottle. For a full overview of the new charms and the new jewellery, follow the links!
For this year’s Mother’s Day campaign, Pandora North America seem to have opted for a slightly counter-intuitive red that manages to clash with most if not all of the new pieces, haha, but for the most part I do like the way they shoot their campaign images.
Live shots uploaded by various stores show off the new pieces in more natural settings:
I particularly love the Glittering Heart enamel heart. And how beautiful do the new MOP florals look – the opalescent quality to the finish is so pretty! I haven’t found many good photos of the new safety chains though, which are what I am most interested in.
Pandora Mother’s Day Gift Sets for North America
I previously detailed the gift sets in my April news round-up, but here they are again for reference! The individual pieces will available for purchase on their own from the 9th of May.
The Flowers from the Heart gift set includes the heart-clasp bracelet, 2 x White Primrose clips and the Spring Time openwork charm for $195 USD or $225 CAD.
The Wishful Heart LE bangle for Mother’s Day 2016 is only available as part of a bundle in North America this year, which I anticipate will garner a mixed reaction from collectors. I know that I always prefer to be able to buy my jewellery individually and to pick for myself what goes with what. In any case, this gift set is $125 USD or $145 CAD.
Finally, the LE Bound by Love charm will be $90 USD or $100 CAD.
As usual, they come with cute gift boxes. Pandora NA nearly always get it right in terms of presentation. I already got my Bound by Love here in the UK, but we didn’t get offered a nice presentation box with it here!
Pandora Rose Spring 2016 Release
North America has also received the Pandora Rose Spring 2016 collection today (we in the UK will have to wait until Summer 2016, from what I understand). This is a relatively modest collection, with a handful of sparkling floral designs for the most part. For a full overview of what’s out today, check out my preview here.
While I am a big fan of the Pandora Rose line, and spent last year happily finishing up my Pandora Rose bracelet, I find these new pieces too similar to what’s already on offer and so I won’t be indulging in any of them this time around. The flowers are very pretty though!
As I’ve said a few times now, this year’s Mother’s Day 2016 took me surprise a little. I like it overall much better than those of years, mainly because of its wider appeal – alongside all the usual mums-y jewellery, there are perfume bottles, cupcakes, two safety chains (two!), flowers and a beautiful use of pearl and mother-of-pearl. My must-haves are the two safety chains (I have already indulged in the two-tone one!) and the gorgeous Glittering Heart enamel charm.
If you’re in the UK, the Pandora Spring collection, with all these new pieces, is available from authorised retailer John Greed.
Will you be purchasing anything from this collection? Are you excited for this release?
