*UPDATED JUNE 2016* Today’s post looks forward to the AW16 season, with a preview of the upcoming Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 collection! This release is just a small one, featuring a mix of astrological zodiac designs and some more generic friendship designs, too.
The Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 collection is due out on the 21st of July. I already posted some teasers as to what was coming out with this release, but I now have pictures of most of the new pieces – read on for sneak peeks at all the new charms! :)
Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 Sneak Peek
First up, we have a set of new Zodiac charms for the Pandora Moments range. These are modelled on the same design as the Vintage Letter charms from the Pandora Spring 2016 collection; however, pleasingly, these appear to be plain silver, with no pavé in sight! I love the little stars in between each disc, too.
The second set of charms feature some ‘friendship’ designs, wherein the two halves of the same charm can be shared between two people. There’s also a new clip, featuring a heart & infinity symbol, and a new button-style friendship charm.
The Canada Heart Flag doesn’t really fit with this collage, but I didn’t want to leave it on its own haha – so I’ve grouped them all under ‘hearts & decor’. It just about qualifies! ;)
*UPDATED June 2016* I’ve now found an image of one further charm coming out with this collection! It’s a new silver animal bead, with lots of detail: a koala.
Finally, you can also see a brand new bracelet in this gorgeous campaign image! I was told by one source a couple of weeks ago that the clasp features the sun on one side and stars on the other. I think this design is just breathtaking – and it certainly will go nicely with the new Zodiac range!
*UPDATED June 2016* I now have a proper stock image for the bracelet, revealing the designs on each side of the clasp. I really love this one!
It’s worth bearing in mind that this might not be the full list of jewellery coming out with this release, although it does include everything that my source of mine told me about. It’s also about the right number of new charms for a Pre-Autumn collection, which is always small.
I absolutely love the look of the new bracelet; it kind of reminds me of the gorgeous Pandora Disney Frozen snowflake designs. The zodiac charms also appeal to me much more than either the original Moments zodiac range or the Pandora Essence zodiac range. However, I’ve never really been into star signs or astrology, so I can’t say that I am hugely excited to get my star sign! ^^
Of the heart charms, I quite like the new clip, the two-piece pink-enamel friendship dangle and the decorative pink Love & Friendship charm; however, they are repetitive of what has gone before and they’re not must-haves by any means.
What do you think of this year’s Pre-Autumn collection? Is anything on your wish list so far?
