Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all the details on what’s coming up for March 2017 – and beyond! There is so much going on in this month’s round-up, which includes details on upcoming bracelet promos, Mother’s Day live shots and some sneak peeks at previously unseen charms. :D
Read on for all the latest news! :)
Pandora Spring 2017 Collections Launch
The biggest event on the calendar for this month is undoubtedly the 16th March launch of Pandora’s Spring 2017 jewellery collections, which include new pieces for the Rose, Essence and Disney lines! :D If you have a look through the ‘Preview’ tag on the blog, you’ll be able to take in previews of all the new collections, and some lovely live shots of most of the new pieces, too.
The collection has already started to make its way into some North American stores, which is super exciting!
In addition to the charms and bracelets I’ve already previewed, there’s also this gorgeous blue version of the Field of Flowers murano coming with the Spring 2017 collection! It’s such a pretty cornflower blue, and an usual colour choice for Pandora’s spring releases – it’s nice to see them doing something different. This wasn’t in the North American catalogue, and so it probably won’t be coming out there, for whatever reason (unless it proves to be a Jared exclusive, which would be unusual), but it should be available in most other regions, including the UK.
Pandora Mother’s Day UK Release
A small selection of the Pandora Mother’s Day 2017 collection launched in the UK at the end of last month; I finally managed to go and see it all in person this weekend!
The charms, as usual, look so much more striking in person – but nevertheless, I’m holding out for the new Spring 2017 beads, so I didn’t buy anything. I was quite tempted by the bangle! ^^ I still haven’t managed to get my hands on one of those lovely Mother’s Day bags yet, though (so if anyone has one available, please let me know! I’m a sucker for the pretty gift bags! :P).
You can go shopping for all these pretty pieces online at authorised UK Pandora stockist The Jewel Hut. :)
Pandora Summer 2017 Collection Mystery Bead
There’s always at least one slightly kooky Pandora country exclusive a year, and today we have a sneak peek of one for this year! ^^ I have been given a stock image of this Summer 2017 charm – a little ghosty-looking bead, which initially stumped me, I’ll admit.
Some online discussion, however, has suggested that this charm could be a teruterubozu, or weather doll, which seems to make a lot of sense to me! I hadn’t heard of these before, but apparently they’re Japanese good luck charms, designed to bring in the good weather (heaven knows we could use them of these in the UK!), I found this little image on Pinterest:
This charm wasn’t in the NA booklet, so I assume it won’t be coming out there. As Pandora is becoming increasingly popular in some Asian countries, it makes sense that they’re making some fun little charms that tap into the culture there.
Pandora North American March 2017 Promos
First up, and most excitingly, the free bracelet promotion will be returning to North America this month! It will be running from 23-26 March, with many stores offering pre-sales starting from the 18th (but check with yours). The only difference is that, this time, you have to spend $125 USD to get your free bracelet of $65 USD value – which is a higher spend threshold than previous promos. :(
You will be able to upgrade to certain styles – I’ve asked whether the new Beauty and the Beast bangle will be available with the promo, and the answer I’ve had from stores is that Pandora has not explicitly forbidden it – but that it’s possible they might get more specific nearer the time about what is and what isn’t eligible. One thing I did notice is that some stores are advertising this as Pandora’s only free bracelet event for 2017 – I have not had this confirmed, but that’s definitely something to bear in mind!
The other promo that will be on offer is this Beauty and the Beast Pandora gift set, which will be available for $185 USD ($210 CAD). It includes three B&B charms, including the new Mrs Potts charm, and an exclusive lithograph. Stores are only getting very limited numbers of these (some as low as two sets), so perhaps it might be worth trying to reserve one if you want one!
Pandora Germany Free Bracelet Event March 2017
There’s also a free silver bracelet event currently running for Pandora collectors in Germany until the 15th of March – details are included in the poster below!
I am beyond excited for the Pandora Spring 2017 collection, and have already got all my purchases mapped out! My purchases will include the pink and purple Field of Flowers muranos, the new Poetic Blooms charm bracelet, Tigger, Piglet and Tinker Bell’s Dress and Shoe! I’d also like to get the new Pandora Rose safety chain. :D So I’ll be very busy!
I’ve got one bracelet ready for Spring purchases – this oxidised design with some classic floral charms, and a little sparkle, too:
The other, a forest-green design, is waiting for the Poetic Blooms bracelet, which I’m hoping to get in the US bracelet promo! <3
What are your plans for the month?
