Today’s post brings some exciting updates on the Pandora Autumn 2016 collection (due out on the 1st of September), with a preview of previously unseen pieces – including new charms, three new bracelets and a breast cancer awareness jewellery collection!
I’m not sure why the pieces below weren’t included in the original North American preview catalogue I saw; perhaps some are only coming out in certain stores in North America, e.g. concept, shop-in-shop or Jared, or they’re not coming out in North America at all. I’ll update when you when/if I hear more – Pandora don’t always make it easy to sort items out neatly into collections these days!
To see my existing previews, just follow the links:
Otherwise – read on for a sneak peek at these extra pieces!
Pandora Autumn 2016 Updates
First up, we have three more new bracelets that we haven’t seen before! I only have teeny-tiny pictures of these new bracelets, but you get the idea I’m sure. They’re essentially coloured versions of the CZ barrel-clasp bracelet, in red, blue and purple:
The most exciting set of new pieces for me is the new charms! The Protection murano is a cool concept, if perhaps not the easiest to style, and the Lock of Longevity offers a pretty heart-padlock design. However my absolute favourite of these is the Origami Crane– it’s so cute, plain silver and a lovely original concept! It would be great with some of the CNY or Asian-themed bracelets people have come up with.
The top three charms I haven’t seen in any NA catalogues, and so most probably aren’t being released there.
Next up – there will be three threadless necklaces for Autumn 2016, just like the new Spring 2016 threadless bracelet. I’m kind of amazed that we got gold, two-tone and silver versions of the threadless necklace before we got gold and two-tone versions of the threadless bracelet, but hey – maybe those are soon to follow!
Finally, there’s a mini jewellery set coming out called Pink Ribbon, presumably in support of breast cancer charities – it consists of a pair of earrings and a rather adorable pendant that would look great on a bracelet, I think. I didn’t see these in any North American catalogues so maybe they’re not coming out there.
I think these are possibly my favourite BCA awareness designs they’ve done yet – the ribbons are so delicately integrated into the main design.
I will update my original Autumn 2016 previews with these new pieces as well, just for simplicity’s sake – last year I ended up with about four successive previews for each collection as new pictures came out, so I’m trying to avoid that this time and to keep everything in one post! ;)
Of these new pieces, the Origami Swan dangle is my favourite by far – I will definitely be getting that one! <3 It’s so nice to see these occasional detailed silver pieces still coming out, even as Pandora retire the older ones.
On the other hand, this is truly season of the bracelets isn’t it! It’s becoming hard to keep track of. ;) The CZ barrel-clasp bracelet is a popular design, and so it’s not too much of a surprise to see new colours. There’s certainly a lot of choice these days when you’re looking to start a new bracelet design, which is great for both new collectors and old.
What do you think of these latest Pandora Autumn 2016 sneak peeks? Are there any extra pieces to go on your wish list?
