Today brings our last big Pandora release of the year, with the launch of the Winter 2017 collections! There are new charms and jewellery for the Pandora Moments, Essence, Disney and Rose lines, and lots to tempt you into hitting the spends for the various holiday promos going on this season.
As is traditional, I’m celebrating the new release by rounding lots of live images of all the new jewellery, and adding in little bits of extra info as well! :)
Pandora Winter 2017 collections debut
The regular Moments line features a mix of more sophisticated deep blues, featuring galactic and icy themes, and some more fun holiday pieces, decked out for the most part in vibrant reds and greens. For a full overview, with stock images, please take a look through the Pandora Winter 2017 tag! :)
As usual, lots of pretty live shots have been popping up online, and I’ve rounded up some of them below for you to look through! My favourites still are the Wintry Delight and the navy blue Dazzling Snowflake, which have a beautiful colour. :D They featured very prominently in the live shots I found, which is unsurprising!
There are also some new gift sets out for North America, which come with special festive packaging – you can read more about them in my recent holiday 2017 round-up :)
Pandora Rose Winter 2017 debut
The Pandora Rose line is getting its first festive-themed beads – a Christmas tree, a snowflake pendant and a present charms, plus three new floating locket petites! I really like these, but the holiday theme doesn’t really fit with either of my Pandora Rose bracelets.
I posted a full overview of the Rose AW17 collection some time ago – some live shots from retailers are below! 🌹
Pandora Essence Winter 2017 debut
There are three new Essence charms making their debut today – miniature versions of the Moments Radiants Heart design, in festive red, blue and green. Colourful, pretty and pint-sized. ^^ I never got around to posting my Pandora Essence AW17 preview this year, for which I’m sorry – but you can see the new designs in this campaign below!
Pandora Bangor uploaded a cute series of pictures, featuring each of the new Essence colours with matching jewellery ^^
Pandora Bright Ornament Limited Edition charm
The limited edition Bright Ornament charm seems to have launched in most regions today, as well – this is a red enamel and pave ornament charm, engraved with ‘2017’. This had originally been intended as this year’s Black Friday charm, but it seems to have been adopted as a regular limited edition Winter 2017 bead. In the US, it will come with a stunning red ornament box:
This special packaging seems to be exclusive to the US, unfortunately. :(
This image by Pandora Eastland Mall shows off both the charm and the box very nicely! I must have one! :D
Pandora Disney Winter 2017 debut
Finally, there are also a selection of new Pandora Disney beads coming out today, including appearances from Mickey, Minnie, Bambi, Thumper and Lilo & Stitch! :D You can see stock images and some live shots by clicking through the Pandora Disney AW17 tag. ^^ I also already reviewed Bambi and Thumper on the blog earlier this week!
There is also a selection of Disney Parks exclusive charms due to come out this season – it might be worth keeping an eye on the Disney store online to see if they make an appearance there! Pandora often stagger the release of the Disney Parks charms, so it might be that they’re keeping them for later in the year… 🤔
Pandora UK Christmas Ornament GWP starts today
This year’s limited edition Christmas ornament is available from today in the UK as part of a GWP – I had previously mentioned hearing that the spend had been dropped this year to £99, which happily enough has proven to be the case! :D
This live image of the ornament comes from eBay – it looks really pretty! It’ll be available later on in other countries.
I’m rather a fan of this collection – the new deep blue charms are particularly lovely this year, and there are some lovely individual beads. My must-haves are the Wintry Delight, Ice Drops murano, the Christmas Polar Bear and the Bright Ornament, which is a very healthy wish list! I also love the Christmas Night snow globe charm, the Snowy Wonderland and the blue Dazzling Snowflake, but I don’t really have places for those. :(
I did also like the Celestial Mosaic, but noted that the Pandora catalogue lists the black material in it as ‘acrylic’, which is weird. :S is that just another form of enamel or something?
I’m still deciding what to buy for the UK ornament gift with purchase – I think it’s a choice between hoovering up some of the new Winter beads or the Rose smooth bracelet. One of the more fun decisions I’ve had to make lately :D I doubt I’ll get into town before the weekend to see the new collection, but that does give me some extra time to make up my mind. ^^
Are you buying anything from this collection? What’s on your wish list?
