Today brings my next Pandora SS17 preview with a full look at the Pandora Disney Spring 2017 release, which is hands-down my favourite launch of what we’ve seen so far. ^^ Due out with the Pandora Spring 2017 collection on the 16th March, we have some additions to the Winnie the Pooh collection, Tinker Bell designs and appearances from some all-new characters!
Pandora always release two sets of Disney charms with each collection – one that’s exclusive to Disney Parks locations and one that’s sold in both the Parks and Pandora concept stores. The charms pictured here will be those sold in all locations. :D
I previously posted some low-res campaign images offering a sneak peek at this collection (as above), but I now have high-resolution stock photography of all the new charms! :D There are lots of little details in these beads that you might otherwise miss, so read on for a full preview!
Pandora Disney Spring 2017 Full Preview
First up, we have nine new Pandora Disney charms – including the much-anticipated Tigger and Piglet!
The Belle’s Radiant Rose charm features openwork floral detailing on its sides, and strikes me as being perfect to go with the Valentine’s Cerise Hearts murano (which I just reviewed!). Tinker Bell’s Shoe features a freshwater pearl, too, as an extra gorgeous detail!
There’s also a new Beauty and the Beast-themed bracelet, which features the Shimmering Rose clip and the inscription, ‘True beauty lies within’. This is our very first Disney bangle – it would be rather fun if they did more for other films and princesses!
The level of detail on these beads is what gets me – the little tongues on Donald and Daisy, or Chip’s sleepy expression on the Mrs Potts & Chip charm. The attention to detail really shines through in this Disney collection and, while it’s only small, I do think this is an excellent set of new beads! It’s definitely the collection so far that will hit my wallet hardest. ;) My must-haves are Tigger and Piglet, who will be added to my pink floral oxidised bracelet, which already features Eeyore in pride of place. I also would love to get the two new Tinker Bell charms for the forest green bracelet I’m planning – the iridescent green enamel looks stunning from these stock images, and hopefully it won’t prove too luminous or bright in person!
I would have loved Belle’s Radiant Rose to be more along the lines of my original idea for an enchanted rose charm, with a rose design frozen within murano glass, but this new idea is probably much more of a safe bet when it comes to production issues – and the rose silhouette behind the rich cerise stone is gorgeous. As I said before, the new Valentine’s cerise beads would be perfect with it.
Now that we’ve seen good stock images, is anything going on your wish list? Which are your favourites?
