Today’s post brings a preview that many of us have been waiting for, with an overview of the new charms coming out with the Pandora Spring 2017 collection! :D This release, due out on the 16th March, offers the usual pastels and florals, but also throws in some bright colours in a more unusual move from the brand.
For some live shots of the collection and other campaign shots, please have a scroll through the Pandora Spring 2017 tag – otherwise, read on for stock images and further details! :) This preview encompasses the charms & charm bracelets only, as I’ll be back with a separate post that covers the other jewellery.
Pandora Spring 2017 Collection Preview
First of all, we have our floral beads – and there are a fair few of them! There are many more additions to previous sets of charms, including the Dazzling Daisies and Poetic Blooms collections, and an entirely new set called Magnolia Bloom.
However, for me the stand-outs are the beautiful Field of Flowers muranos in pink and a beautiful soft lilac colour. There’s also a soft glitter in the glass and threads of colour twining the flowers together – the effect should be beautiful in person!
To go with the charms, there’s going to be a brand new special-clasp bracelet! Pandora do so many of these nowadays, but this is our first floral bracelet. :D
Next up, we have some more generic decorative charms, including the Insignia safety chain and clip, which are silicone lined. Pandora have been showcasing the brightly coloured Radiant Droplets beads all together on one colourful bangle design, which is rather fun – but I’d be tempted to put them with more sympathetic colour schemes. The lilac shade is particularly pretty (it looks amazing in the campaign shot at the top!).
Following the trend for Stones of Colour that Pandora have going on at the moment, we have our next set of birthstone jewellery – petites for the Floating Locket necklaces!
Next, we have the usual love, heart and milestones beads – I’ve included all the heart charms here! The Classic Heart clip is a lovely simple two-tone design that could have jumped right out of a Pandora catalogue from way back when, and I also find the Lucky Day dangle very cute with its clover and sparkling horse shoe! The Glittering Hearts of Pandora is a plain-silver bead that’s textured just like the Pandora Essence Wisdom charm. :)
Finally, we have some 14kt gold charms! I know that the sparkle won’t appeal to everyone, but I think the detailing on these beads is so striking – the colours in the Opulent Floral are just stunning.
My must-haves are undoubtedly the beautiful Field of Flowers muranos, in both lilac and pink, and I also really like the Poetic Blooms bracelet. People have been asking for a floral special-clasp bracelet for a long time! The Magnolia collection is very pretty (I love enamel detailing!), and it’s nice that the shade of pink they’ve gone for is a bit brighter – the pieces wouldn’t look out of place on a more tropical-themed bracelet design.
It’s disappointing not to see more character beads – but at least there’s the Pandora Disney Spring 2017 collection to make up for that, which has some wonderfully detailed pieces (if you can get hold of them!). Of what we’ve seen so far, there’s more than enough to keep me busy come March!
What do you think of this year’s spring collection? Is anything going on your wish list?
