It’s that exciting time of year again when Pandora start hosting their Spring/Summer media events for bloggers and the press; this post brings some sneak peeks from previews hosted in a variety of places including Romania and Poland. I already posted a preview of the Pandora Rose Spring 2017 collection earlier on, but these photos give us a good look at the other collections that will be launching for Pandora SS17. :D
The Pandora Spring 2017 collection is due out on the 16th March, the Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 collection is usually out in early April (although the UK tends to get some pieces earlier, typically in February) while you can expect the Pandora Summer 2017 collection some time at the end of May/early June.
Just as a reminder – please do not reproduce any photos without crediting their proper owners! ^^
Pandora Spring 2017 Live Shots
As usual, I am in love with the beautiful floral displays Pandora have created to showcase the new jewellery. There’s always something particularly exciting about the SS17 media previews just because of all the delicate florals and pastels. :D I do wish I could wing an invitation to one of these some day, haha. I’ll have to move to Poland!
And now for the jewellery! We start with these live shots of a new pink floral enamel collection, featuring charms, clips and a spacer. These are very much in keeping with the floral motifs from previous collections, but the colour is a bit more tropical, blending white and shimmery pink enamel.
There’s a matching ring to go with the floral pieces, as showcased in this beautifully crisp photo:
And a matching pendant:
The new colourful Radiant Droplets charms are showcased all together on a bangle. The rainbow effect is super pretty, but I’d be more tempted to pick out the colours that fitted my collection best:
However, our best look at the new collections come courtesy of this video posted to Facebook by Andreea Ibacka (a big hat tip to Laura for the heads-up on this!). Following on from this collection’s theme of Stones of Colours and from the new Valentine’s 2017 Birthstone earrings and pendants, we will also be getting Birthstone Petites for the Floating Locket!
This next shot shows off a new Poetic Blooms clip design with pink enamel flowers set into clear pavé CZ, and a new silver decorative bead.
On the bottom bracelet, there’s a new CZ Dazzling Daisy spacer and a bigger daisy pendant charm. Are those new colours of the Petite Facets, too?
I previously posted a sneak peek at some Floral Petites and we have a sweet live shot of them:
The enamel bangle bracelets come in a variety of pretty colours. I love how sunshiney and bright they are, but I’d kind of want to wear a whole stack of them, which would be expensive!
*UPDATED* We now have some even clearer shots, courtesy of Urban Diva.ro! Thanks very much to them for letting me share these lovely pics – go back and read the article for the full set of pictures, too.
Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 Live Shots
The Pandora Mother’s Day collection for this year features soft white enamels and delicate grey pearl detailing.
We get a great shot of a bunch of the Pandora Mother’s Day charms here, including some white enamel charms and spacers. The charm to the far right has beautiful grey pearls in it, too:
There’s a matching pendant to go with it:
And earrings & a ring!
And the keen-eyed among you will have spotted the limited edition Mother’s Day bangle for this year! It has a white enamel heart in the clasp – and I’m told the inscription will be You are so loved. I would have preferred it without, but at least it doesn’t limit it specifically to family, like last year.
This shot is hard to see, but there are new heart-shaped versions of the Floating Lockets. I love the look of these! I can’t make out what’s inside though – they don’t look like traditional Petites…
More charms are next, with two new openwork hearts and a pink enamel mother dangle.
And some new clips, although the design is hard to make out. It looks like a gold heart:
Two more necklaces crop up next, one featuring a new focal stone and silver heart of some kind and the other a new white enamel design:
Again thanks to Urban Diva, we have some great new Mother’s Day live shots, which reveal much more of the detail:
Here, we can see the focal charm much more clearly – it’s a white enamel tree design, I guess playing on Pandora’s favourite motif of family trees.
Pandora Summer 2017 Live Shots
The Pandora Summer 2017 collection seems to be a bright affair, as usual – these charms pictured below are quite cartoon-like with their bright use of red, orange and yellow enamel. We appear to have a sunset enamel bead on the left, and another with a pineapple, martini glass and sunglasses on the right. I prefer the look of the turquoise blue enamel bead, which I assume will be oceanic in theme, and the pretty Starfish charm.
We get another look at the bracelet on the left in the following shots. This appears to be a new colour of double leather, with perhaps blue and green strands woven together?
The other bracelet is a brand new orange design, which looks like great fun:
To match the openwork charm, there are also some blue tropical Petites for the Floating Locket. These are pretty, but I can’t imagine wanting to wear a necklace as heavy as this during really summery weather!
In some more live shots from Andreea’s video, we can see a new charm version of the Summer 2015 Orchid pendant, sandwiched between two petite facets:
Here on this bangle we can see a white enamel version of the 2015 Orchid pendant, in addition to some green CZ versions of the Cosmic Stars clip from all the way back in 2014!
This gorgeous shot from Urban Diva reveals that there will be two new versions of the clips, in green and blue:
To match the pendant, there will also be a regular charm, and cute little earrings:
Next, we have a look at a clear CZ starfish pendant:
As usual, it can be difficult to make out the pieces in a lot of these shots, but I think weve got a rather comprehensive grounding as to what sort of thing we can expect this season, especially in terms of the Pandora Summer 2017 collection! There are some pretty shades, and I really like the sheer of variety of colour and enamels on display here – there are lots of decorative beads that would lovely with some of my older Pandora beads. However, what concerns me is the lack of character beads on show – often Pandora will put out their prettiest pieces and not showcase the character beads so much in these previews, however, so perhaps there is more to see!
What do you think of these initial live shots? Do any pieces appeal to you?
