The Pandora Essence Autumn 2016 collection is due out on the 1st of September. Read on for a full preview!
Pandora Essence Autumn 2016 Preview
This autumn, we’ll be getting six new Pandora Essence charms, in shades of pink, blue and white. It’s a small release, but the designs are a little bit different from what we’ve seen before, especially the mosaic-style beads. I don’t mind trading off on quantity if the designs are more creative!
The Freedom charm is made from cerise enamel, while the three mosaic charms are all mother of pearl! The Appreciation charm is rose cubic zirconia, and reminds me very much of the Radiant Hearts charm from the Moments collection. The Passion charm contains a cubic zirconia heart on either side.
And now we have an additional sneak peek at a solid 14kt gold Essence bangle, which is due out with this collection! Beautiful, but sure to be oh-so-pricey!
For me, this is quite a stunning Essence release – I like almost every bead. It’s amazing to see such a high proportion of natural materials used; the different shades of mother of pearl are beautiful, especially the blue-grey, and the cerise enamel is lovely. I like how the botanical patterning on the Freedom charm matches the original silver version of Freedom so nicely!
I thought I was done with my Essence bracelets, but I will be needing some of these beads! ^^
What do you think of this latest release from Pandora Essence?
