Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all that’s coming up for December 2016! This month’s new delves into all the wonderful festive offers and promos running this month, and also offers a few rumours and tidbits as to what’s coming next year with the Pandora Spring 2017 collection. 🌸
In terms of blog news, I will be starting my Pandora Christmas 2016 charm reviews very shortly – there will be lots of Pandora festive inspiration, and a look at my updated Pandora Christmas bracelet for this year too! 🎄
Pandora Christmas Ornament GWP 2016
The Pandora ornament GWP begins today for North America, available with spends of $125 USD or more – this year’s ornament is the beautiful porcelain Hidden Gift. The offer lasts until December 8, or while stocks last, and offers a wonderful opportunity to indulge in the Black Friday 2016 charm or perhaps one of the holiday gift sets!
I have mine already, and it’s just gorgeous! .
It looks so pretty on display with my previous two :) I don’t hang my ornaments on the tree as I have both a clumsy cat and dog, and there’s no doubt in my mind that they’d be smashed before the day was out. ^^ I tend to put them out on a shelf, out of harm’s way!
Pandora Jared Ornament 2016 GWP
Running alongside the regular ornament GWP in the US is a rather special promotion, exclusive to Jared’s Galleria stores. They will be offering their own exclusive ornament for the same spend of $125 USD:
It’s a gorgeous wreath porcelain ornament, with PANDORA and the year engraved on it. There have been a few live shots of it uploaded to eBay by user suzicharm, and it looks just as nice in person – you can see the details much more clearly, too:
This is the promo I’ve been most excited for, and I have a friend in the US who will be helping me out with it! <3
Rue La La Pandora November 2016 Sale Continues
The Pandora sale at US shopping site Rue La La is continuing for another three days, offering great discounts on a variety of jewellery! It’s members only but as usual you can sign up using my affiliate code.
I’ve bought a few bits and pieces myself, including this absolutely gorgeous two-tone MOP pendant (photo courtesy of my friend in the US!):
I’ve wanted this for a long time but have always managed to miss it in the UK sales. :D I also decided to go for the multi-strand clip bracelet (another item that’s long been on my wishlist!) and the clear Her Majesty spacers!
Pandora Australia & New Zealand Unique Snowflake Bangle GWP 2016
If you’re wondering why the limited edition Unique Snowflake bangle hasn’t launched in Australia or New Zealand yet, I have good news for you – it will be available as a gift with purchase later in December!
Running from the 8th December, spend $150 AUD or $180 NZD and receive the bangle for free!
Pandora.net Advent Calendar 2016 Promotion
Every year, Pandora usually run a daily little Christmas competition on their website and, true to form, this year’s has started! It’s a cute advent calendar promotion, with the chance to win 25 different pieces of jewellery every day.
This, from what I understand, matches physical advent calendar displays that will be on show in Pandora’s concept stores as well!
Pandora Boxing Day 2016 Sales
After these exciting Christmas promos are over, it will then be time for the Boxing Day sales! These will be running again this year after Christmas in many countries, including the UK. There’s limited info on them just yet, but they offer discounts on retired charms and jewellery, and it’s usually worth putting aside a few pennies to scoop up some discontinued beads!
Rue La La will be running something for the US as well. :)
Pandora Spring/Summer 2017 Rumour Round-Up
We’ve already had a preview of the Pandora Valentine’s 2017 collection, but there’s not much info out yet on what’s coming out from Pandora for Spring and Summer next year – however, I’ve been told a couple of tidbits about the upcoming Pandora SS17 collections to get us started:
- Pandora Essence will be back with a spring 2017 collection, which will include the first Pandora Essence dangle charms and a lot of sparkle
- There will be more Winnie the Pooh characters in the next Disney launch, alongside new Donald and Daisy Duck charms (fingers crossed for Tigger and Piglet…!)
- More flowers & pinks for spring, which I’m sure will shock no one!
Hope everyone has enjoyed their first day of advent! ^^ This is such a fun time of the year, and, as usual, Pandora have risen marvellously to the occasion with some gorgeous Pandora Christmas promos running this month. I’m doing the Jared ornament promo this year, which I’m super excited about, and I’m also expecting a couple of Pandora things to be under the tree for me this year… 🌟
In terms of what’s coming ups or next year, I am super excited for the prospect of more Winnie the Pooh characters to collect – they have been top of my list ever since Pandora Disney was announced two years ago. 😊 Other than that, I know that there are still a whole range of beads I’ve been wanting them to do for years that I would love to see. A typewriter charm, a charm for sewers and/or knitters, some adorable Bambi charms or a Dumbo bead. I’d also love to see Pandora do some two-tone charms with 14kt rose gold – that would be gorgeous!
In terms of my own Pandora news, thanks to the very kind assistance of one of my blog readers, I now have the retired Zebra murano I was looking for! <3 Yay!
Are you taking part in any promos this month? And what are you hoping to see next year?
