Today brings another update on the upcoming Pandora Valentine’s 2017 collection (due out the 12th of January – aka, this Thursday!) with a round-up of live shots of all the new romantic jewellery and the adorable new CNY 2017 Lion Dance, too!
The collection has started making its way into stores in the US & Canada, and I’ve been enjoying hearing about various readers’ purchases already! I have my first buys all planned out – my must-have remain the Cerise Hearts murano and the Sparkling Heart bracelet, but I can’t wait to go and see it all in store to see if anything else leaps out and surprises me!
In the meantime, read on to see some live shots ahead of the collection’s official release date!
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2017 Collection Live Shots
We have a series of close-up live shots of the vast majority of the new Valentine’s pieces, including a few of the new birthstone jewellery items. The Cerise Hearts murano looks a lovely rich colour, but I’m reserving judgement on the other beads until I get to see them in person I think 😊
The Lace Bow Heart looks really lovely with neutral peachy-pinks and Victorian lace detailing, but I don’t currently have a use for it and I’d have to have a real think about where it would really fit into my collection!
The Valentine’s Petites for the Floating Locket come in the usual black packaging:
Pandora CNY 2017 Lion Dance Live Shots
We have some fab live shots thanks to Patty Ng, who has opted for a gorgeous red and gold styling to showcase this lovely bead:
In certain countries in Asia, the charm also comes with a traditional Hong Pao red envelope.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ll already know that I also got mine this weekend! It’s only a very low-res image, as I was so over-excited that I didn’t even stop to find my iPhone to take the photo instead of my very old iPad 😅 but here he is! It is just as gorgeous as person, and I’ll be reviewing it very soon :)
As I’ve said before, while there are some pretty beads here and the cerise colour scheme is gorgeous, I’m not planning on acquiring too much from this release. My CNY Lion I am beyond thrilled with, and I am really excited to get the two Valentine’s pieces I mentioned before – the Sparkling Heart bracelet on which to put my CNY Lion and my other red Asian themed beads, and the Cerise Hearts murano to complete my oxidised travel bracelet, which I recently took apart and redesigned a little. I’ve never been quite happy with it and I hope that this murano will be the piece to finish it off and pull it all together!
I keep saying to people that I haven’t made any Pandora new year’s resolutions, but maybe I should, haha. I’d certainly like to be a more careful curator of what goes into my collection going forward, as I took stock of everything I had recently and there’s so much of it! I could do with picking the pieces I really most love and maybe mixing my review posts of new pieces with some features on my favourite older beads, perhaps. Well – we’ll see if that sticks or not! 😂
Do these live shots change your mind on anything at all? What do you think?
