Following on from yesterday’s Pandora Disney preview, we have another sneak peek, with a look at the upcoming Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 collection! <3 The collection features a lot of decorative pieces, and the usual maternal designs – there are a fair few hearts included, but also a few hobby- and occasion-themed beads, too.
This preview, as usual, encompasses all the charm jewellery; the other jewellery will be previewed separately. :) This collection launch should be due out in most countries on the 13th of April but the UK will receive a small portion of the collection early on the 23rd of February, seeing as we celebrate an earlier Mother’s Day than most.
Read on for a look at all the charms and bracelets coming out with this release!
Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 Collection Preview
Let’s start with all the new Mother’s Day charms that are coming out – I’ve divided them into two categories: those that are fundamentally heart designs, and ones that are not, haha. The heart charms are quite often family-related or maternal in theme, but the limited edition charm is a pretty pearlescent enamel piece with more universal appeal.
In North America, the Family & Love clip will initially be part of a bracelet gift set and will not be sold on its own.
The Luminous Love Knot charms feature very striking ‘white crystal pearls’, and would make lovely focal pieces. There also some cute baby charms, a new safety chain (yay!) that reads Love Always, and a few hobby/occasion beads. The Tree of Hearts is a beautiful white enamel design, with a little gold heart tucked at the centre – it may be a little similar to previous charms we’ve seen, but nevertheless I love the intricate design of the tree itself.
Next up, we have our usual limited edition bangle design for Mother’s Day! I am so happy to see that this year’s offering is less explicitly maternal in theme, offering a more neutral inscription of ‘You are so loved’. I love the clasp, which features Pandora branding and a white enamel heart at its centre.
However, this isn’t it for bracelets – in addition to the bangle, we have a very interesting set of new single and double leathers! These are mostly re-visitations of existing leather bracelets, but with the substitution of the spherical clasp for the traditional barrel clasp that the leathers currently come with. There’s also a brand new colour coming out with the Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 collection – a white double leather, which will go nicely with all those soft shimmery pearl enamel charms. The other colours we’ve all seen before. The black leather appears to be the only new single leather coming out with the new clasp.
It’s worth noting that, in the North American catalogue, I’ve only seen the new white leather advertised, and none of the other colours – so they might not be making their debut in all regions. I will keep my eyes peeled for more details!
Finally, we have all the new Floating Locket designs, of which there are many for Mother’s Day! We have new petite charms in the same pearlescent enamel as the regular charms, and brand-new disc-type charms that are also designed to go in the locket. They’re a bit larger than the Petites and offer something a bit different.
There’s going to be a new heart-shaped Floating Locket necklace, too; I also found a picture of a matching heart-shaped locket charm (which I’ve included here), but I didn’t see this in the North American catalogue and, given the issues with the previous Floating Locket charm design, I wonder whether this is still going ahead. We’ll have to see!
There are lots of pretty charms and bracelets pictured here – the Luminous Love Knot pearls are gorgeous, and I much prefer this year’s LE bangle to last year’s – but I have so many pieces that I want to get from the Pandora Spring 2017 collections that I hardly have any space left in my budget for any of these. Nevertheless, it is so great to see Pandora continuing to expand their line of safety chains, and I am quite tempted by the new script design pictured here. It’s plain silver, and so it shouldn’t be too expensive!
It’s interesting that they seem to be planning on phasing out the older style leather bracelets and replacing them with spherical clasp versions of them – it does make you wonder if the regular silver and gold charm bracelets could be up for the same treatment at some point!
What do you think of this latest preview? Is anything being added to your list to get come April?
