In today’s post, we have another exciting preview, with a full look at the upcoming Pandora Valentine’s 2017 collection! ♥ Once again, Pandora have mostly gone traditional for their Valentine’s Day release, with a lot of heart motifs and sparkle – however, there are also a few nice surprises included, with new birthstone jewellery and a couple of bonus new Pandora Disney beads.
I don’t have a release date for this launch yet but, going by previous years, I would predict that the date would be 12th January. I’ve included prices where I have them – if it’s not listed, then I haven’t been given a price for that item yet! :)
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2017 Collection Preview
First up, we have the charms! These primarily feature a mix of baby pink enamel and a deeper cerise, and all are heart-themed. One of the most striking for me is the Encased in Love bead, which features openwork hearts around a central cerise stone – I can imagine this one looking so pretty in person.
The Love Struck charm will be offered with a special gift box in North America, much like the Love is Forever bead from last year’s Valentine’s release.
There are also a couple of Disney Valentine’s beads pictured here, both featuring the classic Mickey silhouette – these will certainly launch in North America, but I’m not sure about other regions currently. These are pretty simple designs, but would be good to fill out a Disney design without going too OTT or to add a subtle splash of Disney to one of your other bracelets!
There are two new bracelets making their debut with this collection! One is a new Dainty Bow bangle, which looks just lovely, and the other is another special-clasp charm bracelet – the clasp on it is based on the existing Love of my Life clips, and is very similar to that of the limited edition Circle of Love bangle from Mother’s Day 2014!
In North America, the heart-clasp charm bracelet will be part of the Open Hearts bracelet gift set, which will include the bracelet, 2 Row of Love clips and the Encased in Love charm (pictured above).
To match, we have a handful of accompanying jewellery, including a new set of Petites charms for the Floating Locket necklaces! The really cool thing about the Pavé Drops earrings is that they are reversible; you can wear them either way round, with either the smaller or the larger pave studs showing.
In North America, the Loving Hearts of Pandora necklace will initially be part of the Loving Hearts of Pandora gift set with the existing Sparkling Hearts earrings (290568CZ).
The next set of jewellery offers something a little bit different, however. Pandora have recently released new versions of the birthstone rings and charms; they are following those up for Valentine’s 2017 with new versions of the birthstone earrings and brand-new birthstone pendants!
The birthstone earrings are priced at $50 USD or $55 CAD.
I just love the birthstone pendants; they’d look lovely on either a bracelet or a necklace. They are priced at $40 USD or $45 CAD.
This collection is, for the most part, pretty standard Valentine’s fare from Pandora, but I like that they’ve changed it up a little by including the new birthstone jewellery – the pendants are gorgeous!
My favourites of the charms are the gorgeous Lace Heart with the bow, and then the Cerise Heart Glass bead, too. I’m not at all sure how I’ll use them yet, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out! ^^ I would also love to get the new heart-clasp bracelet, which I’d use with my CNY charms – what with the amazing new Dancing Lion bead coming out for Chinese New Year 2017, I need to upgrade from my red leather to a proper silver charm bracelet!
What do you think of this collection? Will anything be making its way on to your wishlist?
