Happy new Pandora day! :D Today sees the official release of the Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 collection – it’s a rather small launch, which is dominated by Pandora’s latest way of friendship charms. To add a little interest, there’s also a selection of zodiac openwork beads, an adorable little Koala charm and a brand-new starry charm bracelet.
As usual, I have put together a selection of live shots of all the new pieces to celebrate the collection’s launch! If you’re looking for a full overview of what’s coming out today, then please check out my preview here – otherwise, read on for some Pre-Autumn 2016 styling inspiration! :D
Pandora Pre-Autumn 2016 Live Shots
Let’s start with a closer look at the zodiac charms – these look gorgeous with existing starry charms. A lot of retailers have been opting to put them together with some vibrant 14kt gold or deep blues to bring out their elegance, too:
The friendship charms are more delicate, with cute pinks and delicate sparkle.
I’ve not managed to track down more live shots of the Koala charm, but for good measure – here’s one from an older post, courtesy of Patty Wu! I just love the amount of detail on Pandora’s animal charms. :D
And, just to finish off with – here’s a gorgeous shot of the new bracelet!
I often find that Pandora’s Pre-Autumn collections are a bit hit and miss for me – I loved last year’s, with all its cute pet charms and fun travel themes, but this one is less appealing overall. I adore the bracelet, and I’ve already got one on its way to me, but the friendship charms are a bit too similar to previous designs to truly excite. The zodiac beads are very nicely done, however, and it’s great that they’re affordable and plain silver!
The Koala is working its way on to my wish list, so I may well end up with that one as well ;) It’s a shame that we didn’t get him here in the UK – I’ve noticed that the variation between regions has been getting far more significant than it used to be over the past year or so. It does get confusing!
If you’re in the UK, the Pandora Pre-Autumn collection is now available from authorised retailer John Greed, who are currently offering free delivery on Pandora.
