Today’s post brings some updates on the upcoming Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 collection, with a number of new pictures and tidbits of information, including a preview of a previously unseen Koala charm! :D This collection is due out on the 21st of July and features some new zodiac beads and friendship charms.
If you haven’t read anything about the Pre-Autumn collection yet, my original preview is available here – otherwise, read on to see what’s new!
Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 Updates
First up, we have a previously unseen bead for the Pre-Autumn 2016 collection – a plain-silver, full-bodied Koala charm! I haven’t seen this in UK/US catalogues for the collection, so it’s possibly not coming out in either of those regions. Europe/Asia/Australia should be getting it, however.
I also have an updated look at the upcoming Starry Sky bracelet for the Pandora Moments range, with stock images for both sides of the clasp! One one side, we have the big dramatic star/sun, and on the other side we have a cluster of smaller stars. If you don’t have access to the Pandora Disney CZ Mickey bracelet, then this one would be a very good alternative if you want the same effect!
The new zodiac charms actually have three different faces: one with a picture, one with a symbol and one with the zodiac written out.
Finally, here’s an updated look at the Love & Friendship bead. What you don’t see from the original stock image is that it actually has writing all the way around the bead – Friendship starts with loving HEARTS. I’m not really very keen on Pandora adding script to their charms, as I think it’s often a bit saccharine or constrictive – I much prefer to give my own meaning to charms. You might feel differently of course!
I have updated my original Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 preview with the new photos as well, so that it’s all in one place!
The bracelet is just gorgeous, and I like it even better having seen the little stars on the other side of the clasp. I’ll definitely be getting that one – I just got two Jasmine muranos in the US leather bracelet promo and they’ll be going on there. <3
It’s nice to see another new animal charm coming out with the collection, especially as there’s not much in the way of travel charms this season. My only problem is that the detailing of his face looks a little bit off to me – but hopefully that’s just a quirk of the stock image. I really want to like him, haha – and he’d be a very good companion to the Lucky Elephant that just came out with the Summer collection!
I have more previews of the other AW16 collections coming up, so keep an eye out for those!
Will you be getting anything from this collection?
