Today brings my next Pandora AW17 sneak peek, with a look at the Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2017 collection! As is usual for Disney AW collections, from what I’ve seen so far, it seems to be a small release, with just three new charms pictured. However, there is also a new set of Disney Petites!

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. They should also be launched in all regions that carry the Disney line.

This collection is due out in November with the Pandora Winter 2017 collection; I don’t have a firm release date on that yet, but I would predict it to fall on the 2nd of November, going by past collections.


Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2017 Preview

There are three new Moments charms coming out with the Pandora Disney AW17 collection: Lilo & Stitch, and two absolutely adorable characters from one of my Disney favourites: Bambi. Pandora always seem to limit themselves a lot with the AW Disney collections, which tend to be very small; however, unlike last year’s, I think this year’s launch makes better use of the collection’s size by introducing something completely fresh and new, rather than just more Mickey/Minnie pieces.

The plain silver detailing on Bambi and Thumper gets a huge thumbs up from me as well, while the fun enamel colours on the L&S bead suit the spirit of that particular film.

Pandora Disney Autumn/Winter 2017 collection

For Mickey & Minnie fans, there will be a set of Disney Petites for the Floating Lockets, detailed in CZ and black enamel. These are rather cute, I think!

You might also notice that this is a new Floating Locket design, too – this one has CZ detailing around the edge. The current offerings are plain silver. :)


My Comment

In my opinion, this is a really great little Disney launch from Pandora: I can’t tell you how excited I am to see Bambi and Thumper! Dangles aren’t always my first choice for character beads, but I think in this case it has given Pandora the scope to really get the styling of each character just right – right down to the little butterfly perched on Bambi’s tail! At first I thought that the detailing on Bambi’s face looked potentially a little off from the stock image, but then I realised that his head is actually turned to look at the butterfly, just like that classic image of him. When you see it that way, his details look perfect. Thumper, too, is absolutely spot on.

I have never seen Lilo & Stitch, but I like that charm’s design – the characters have been captured well, I think, and Stitch looks particularly cute!

What do you think of these new Pandora Disney designs? Are any going on your wish list?

    I love Disney, in this case Bambi and Thumper are in my wish list, I’ll wait to see L&S bead in person to decided about it. I don’t have a floating locket, I really don’t like necklaces, but the Disney petites are very tempting… Thank you for the good news!!!

    Bambi and Thumper are on my must have list! I’m happy to see that they’re plain silver. I like some enamel detailing, but all – over solid colors similar to Piglet and Dumbo are are a bit less versatile, I think. I’ll be buying those two for sure! Thanks for the update, Ellie!

      For sure Pandora isn’t based on originality; their brand is based on a few repeated designs, and Disney, which has a limited market at best. Pandora stock is down this last quarter. Part of the drop is due to slow retail sales across the US and UK, and part because of branding changes in shops, stores closing (700 locations in the US and Canada), etc. The downturn isn’t yet a trend, but it could very easily become one given higher prices for jewelry lacking in originality, and fewer buying options.

      Pandora, Chamelia, Persona, are all companies with their own style and particularity and of course they will compete among other brands and maybe offering better quality. Some charms look best in one brand than others and there is nothing wrong with mixing them together as long as your happy with each one. I also think it is important to let Pandora know what we expect from them and wish for.

      Dreams do come true! At the time, I did not buy Thumper from Chamelia which I regretted. I will get this time the Pandora style including Bambi. I do hope Jeremy the cricket and Pinocchio will eventually be available.😁

      I am so glad to see that Bambi’s legs are on a surface (looks like grass) so the charm will not get stuck into knitting sweaters.😉

    Hi Ellie,

    Bambi and Thumper are so adorable! I’m interested in seeing the Parks exclusives as well. I’ve yet to purchase a Floating Locket, but I do like them. I’ll reserve my opinion of this new one with CZ’s until I’ve seen it in person. There was such a small collection of petites to choose from, I couldn’t justify buying a locket. The Mickey/Minnie petites are really cute though.

    Thanks for the sneak peek, Ellie. I’m anxious to see the Parks exclusives as well.

I haven’t indulged in a floating locket yet, I have an antique one that I wear a lot. To me, lockets are supposed to be closed and the contents hidden. Just an individual quirk of mine.

      I have done that in the past, and it is reasonably pricey. You have to pay a reasonable amount for shipping, and then you get charged customs as well. So it added a good £30 on to the total for me last time. There may be a better way of doing it. I much prefer getting an actual friend to help me. :)

        I think I read that they were releasing the charms individually on July 1st, but maybe they completely sold out of everything they had as the sets? I think Mrs. Potts sold out really quickly as well and it is still out of stock, although you can get that one at regular Pandora stores. I was waiting for them to be sold individually to get them, so now I guess I’ll have to wait a while. The up side of the quick sell out is that they’ll definitely make more of these, and maybe they’ll make more ride charms. Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn, Jungle Cruise, Tiki Room, It’s a Small World, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean would be awesome!

          You can get Dumbo on the US Disney Store website. I’m sure that they will restock it eventually. There is also a Disney Parks shopping app that lets you buy anything from any of the stores in Disney World and ship it to your house. Sometimes things are available more quickly through the app.

    Omg sometimes I seriously scar myself of how I predicted these charms

    And Bambi is exactly how I imagined it and how I would of designed it and I also imagined the floating lockets to be like this

    Though I did imagine stitch to be a plain silver dangle so I’m a little disappointed in the stitch charm and the new Lion King live action will be coming out in 2019 so I’m definitely pridicting some amazing charms to go with such a perfect movie

    I want them all. :) I wonder if they are going to get a collection going of mostly plain silver dangles. So far they’ve done the castles, Piglet, Ariel as a mermaid, Alice in a bottle, Maximus, Dumbo, and now these from Bambi. They are basically the old style of charms that Disney sold in the parks from the 50s to the 90s. They stopped selling them almost completely after that. I really like Pandora bracelets because they don’t have the problems of getting caught on things that my regular charm bracelets do. However, I love the Disney dangles they’ve been making and at some point I may just make a bracelet with all dangles. Pandora ones still have the benefit that you can switch them around on your bracelet.
    Is the Lilo and Stitch charm white in the background like the Olaf charm? I like the tea party, Fantasia, Snow White anniversary, and Sleeping Beauty fairy charms the best of all the Disney charms, but it is kind of difficult to make out the characters on the beads. The Olaf, Gelatoni, and this Lilo and Stitch one seem like the characters really stand out nicely.

      Yes, I think that’s right re the Lilo and Stitch. It seems to be the same sort of design! I think the enamel’s quite nice and vibrant on these beads (love the sapphire blue enamel on Stitch!) so they should stand out all right on this one, as you say! And they’re a bit different to Pandora’s other beads, which is also nice.
