Today’s post looks forward to the Pandora Autumn/Winter 2016 collections, with a collection of live shots showcasing all the new jewellery coming out this season! The release date for the Autumn collection is creeping ever closer, and Pandora has been hosting various special AW16 previews for the media or Pandora VIPs! Consequently we have some lovely clear live shots of lots of the new jewellery to keep us going until we can go and look at it ourselves. ^^
I’ve divided up the pictures into the different collections for ease of reading! The majority of the photographs are published with the very kind permission of Patty Wu, who has taken such fab photos of all the new jewellery for us – please do not reproduce them without crediting her!
Pandora Essence Autumn 2016
The more images I see of the Pandora Essence Autumn 2016 collection, the more I love it! <3
Here you can see the new white mother-of-pearl Generosity bead and the new Passion charm, with a CZ heart. You can really appreciate how luminescent the mother of pearl beads are in person – this white bead looks even more striking!
Next up, we have all the new pink beads. The Appreciation bead looks very similar to the Radiant Hearts in blush that came out for the Moments collection in Autumn 2016 – it looks very pretty here, but it’s certainly a different direction for the Essence collection.
Here we also get a beautiful shot of the new Essence gold bangle! It looks gorgeous with the new pink beads. I’m surprised that we haven’t had a gold version of the regular Pandora Essence bracelet yet, though.
Finally, we have a look at the new blue mother-of-pearl Balance charm, which has a pretty pearly grey sheen to it in person. It’s going to be so tough picking which of these new Essence charms I want! :D
Pandora Autumn 2016
First up, we have a close-up shot of the new Autumn purple beads, set off on the new Pandora Signature charm bracelet. I love the patterning on the side of the Shimmering Medallion charms (either side of the pavé inspiration safety chain) – it’s definitely my favourite of those pictured here! The Nature’s Radiance charms look rather nice, too.
The colour of the Dark Purple Shimmer murano is shown off better in this shot – it would be so great for a more Gothic-themed bracelet, or some kind of dark romance styling!
On the left bracelet, you can see the new Fairytale Treasure bead and on the right the Fairytale Bloom – I just love the bloom. It’s sparkly but the glitter is offset with some really delicate detailing. I am quite tempted! (Click to enlarge the photo).
The new open-ended Pandora signature bangle looks cute and rather chic, if not quite my personal style:
The new Floating Lockets have met with mixed reviews- and I think the look of them depends very much on the charms you put inside them. It looks like you could fit more than the three petites in a single locket as well:
The Autumn 2016 rings are well-represented in the next two shots:
Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2016
Exciting we also have a live look at the new Pandora Disney charms! This year’s AW16 collection is tiny, with only three charms, but we can see all of them in the following pictures.
The Disney pearlescent Mickey silhouettes bead brackets this bracelet design – the other two new beads sit either side of the dangle in the centre of the design. Despite all the sparkle, the new beads make for a surprisingly subtle Disney design.

Pandora Winter 2016
The Winter 2016 collection offers the usual split of icy blues and Christmas reds – the blues look gorgeous with 14kt gold, as you can see below:
The Starry Night Sky murano looks gorgeous – it has the same dramatic deep blue as previous winter muranos, but the painted stars give it a slightly cuter edge.
The little You Keep me Warm snowflake pendant grows on me all the time – it has a little dash of gold, and it would be a really sweet gift to receive on Christmas Day!
Pictured below is the Patterns of Frost pendant:
And you can get a good look at all the Winter 2016 rings in this shot:
The Crystallised Floral bead is another favourite of mine – it would have made a good Black Friday bead for this year I think.
Patty’s photos don’t cover the Christmas beads so much, so I’ve included a couple from social media.
This shot in particular is amazing and really reveals all the cute detail on the new Santa’s House charm, along with the new snowman bead:
This shot mixes the winter reds and blues in a bold styling – I’m not sure the colour works for me, but it is certainly interesting! Both the red and blue versions of the new Adornment charm look nice and bright.
This lovely shot gives you a closer look at the new sleigh charm, decorated with red enamel and the words ‘Merry Christmas’:
The Pandora Autumn 2016 collection is due out on the 1st of September. For full previews of the collection, please see my posts below:
The Pandora Winter 2016 collection is due out on the 3rd of November. For full previews, please see my posts below:
There have actually been a fair few press previews over the past week or so – and so I’ve included some links for further reading, haha, should you feel inclined to hunt for more pictures.
You can find more pictures from a Romanian preview at Urbandiva.ro, or in the #aw16pandora or #pandoraromania tags on Instagram. :)
It’s always exciting to see live shots, and, while these haven’t changed my mind on which pieces I want so far, however, they have definitely made me want them more! The Pandora Essence Autumn 2016 collection looks particularly stunning, and I can’t wait to change up my two-tone Essence bracelet with a few of these latest beads. The shimmer on the mother of pearl Essence beads looks just stunning.
The Fairytale Bloom and Shimmering Medallion charms stand out to me of what we’ve seen of the Autumn collection, although I’d personally style them with some more sedate plain silver beads rather than all the sparkle!
Which pieces are standing out most for you? Are any going on your wish list?
