Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, featuring all that’s coming up for December 2017! We might not have any new releases left for this year, but there are some fun promotions running this month, including my favourite porcelain ornament GWP, and then sales at the end of December to look forward to as well. ^^
The festive season is in full swing in my household, and we’re off to get our Christmas tree this weekend – I’m trying to work out how I can hang my precious Pandora ornament collection on it. I’ve always been too afraid of them falling and smashing to put them up before. One of my suggestions has included ‘festive cushions or a throw’ to place underneath the tree, which has been soundly scotched by my OH! ?
I won’t be doing lots of Christmas reviews this year, but I’m planning on doing one big epic one in which I showcase all my Pandora Christmas collection as well as my new festive charm for the year! ?
Read on to see what’s going on in the Pandora world this month!
Pandora Heart of Winter Bangle Promotion
This year’s limited edition holiday bangle is the Heart of Winter, engraved with the words You Melt My Heart, and it’s being offered as gift with purchase across many different regions this season!
- In the US, the bangle is on offer from today until 6 December, both in store and online, and is available with spends of $125 USD or more.
- In Canada, this begins on 7 December, and will be available with spends of $150 CAD
- In Australia & New Zealand, the offer also begins on 7 December. I was told that this would be available with a spend of $150 AUD ($180 NZD), as with the ornament last month, but rumours are floating around that this has been reduced to $120 AUD, which would be nice!
- The bangle was also meant to be on offer with spends of £99 or more in the UK until 3 December, but stores ran out of stock much more quickly than anticipated and so the offer has finished early. :(
Pandora Christmas Ornament 2017
This year’s festive Pandora Christmas ornament is a pretty porcelain bell, with the usual silver detailing and the year engraved on it.
- In Canada, it is available both in store and online from today until 6 December with spends of $125 CAD or more
- In the US it will be available from 7 December with spends of $125 USD or more
This offer has been and gone in Australia/New Zealand, and it’s not officially running in the UK anymore – however, some UK stores are still offering it if they have stock left. I got mine last month, and love it! It actually chimes (although not very strongly ^^) if you try and ring it.
Pandora Jared Christmas Ornament 2017
There’s also going to be another festive Pandora holiday ornament on offer this month – this one is exclusive to the chain of Jared’s Galleria store in the US, and will be available with spends of $125 USD or more from 7 December both in store and online. The design is a pretty porcelain reindeer, which is very cute – I imagine it’ll be a popular one! :)
The Jared exclusive ornaments tend to become very hard to find, so I’d advise snapping one up while you can if you want one! Jared don’t ship Pandora abroad, so if you live outside the US, you’ll have to find a US friend to help you out. :(
35% off select styles for Pandora US
As an additional promo, there’ll be a 35% discount offered on select styles for Pandora shoppers in the US from 7–10 December. I don’t know yet which pieces will be on offer, but I’ll definitely be having a gander – I’m not sure whether you’ll be able to combine this offer with the US ornament promo, but that would be good!
Pandora Engravable dangles for December 2017
Pandora US seem to release new versions of their stock engravable charms every month at the moment, and I’ve seen some new designs for December popping up online and in stores’ social media. These never get a very official release, and aren’t listed in catalogues or on pandora.net, so it gets really hard tracking down information on them!
This month I’ve spotted some new ‘inspirational’ designs (that’s not me being sarcastic, but rather what Pandora term them as!). They’re quite contemporary in style, and I can imagine these doing better among a younger audience, as they’re quite bright and cartoony.
The Set Goals & Crush Them charm retails for $65 USD, offering a sprinkling of gold-coloured for extra positivity.
The We Rise by Lifting Others charm is a little cheaper at $60 USD.
The Be the Change is also $60 USD.
However, my favourite of these is the So Many Beautiful Reasons to be Happy dangle, also retailing for $60 USD. I like the simplicity of the wording, along with the cheerful colours used. I’ve been thinking about getting a charm engraved for myself with a little happiness motif, but this fits the bill rather nicely. Unfortunately, it’s sold out everywhere I’ve seen it online. ?
*UPDATED* Thanks to Lady G Forty, we now have these lovely shots of the dangles in action! I still love the So Many Reasons charm. <3
Also spotted were these careers-themed dangles, representing the police force, nurses, firefighters, and teachers. However, I’ve only seen these advertised on social media – they’ve not cropped up anywhere online yet as far as I’m aware.
This live shot from Waterfall Jewellers shows them all off:
These designs are all exclusive to the US, unfortunately. Other regions don’t seem to be quite as quick off the mark to release new engraved designs as often as Pandora in the US does!
Pandora Disney Holiday Gift Set 2017
This limited edition Disney Parks US gift set is now available to purchase online, and offers a limited edition festive twist on Mickey & Minnie mouse. The charms are just variations on Pandora’s usual stock engravable charms, however.
This retails for a slightly eye-watering $225 USD, and is available online at the official US Disney store online (shopdisney.com).
Pandora Boxing day sales 2017
After these exciting Christmas promos are over, it will then be time for the Boxing Day sales! These will be running again this year after Christmas in many countries, including the UK. There’s limited info on them just yet, but they offer discounts on retired charms and jewellery, and it’s usually worth putting aside a few pennies to scoop up some discontinued beads!
And I think that just about wraps it up for this month’s round-up! Lots of promos still ticking along. I took part in the UK’s Heart of Winter bangle offer (or, rather, my boyfriend and I both did, as he got me a Christmas present as part of the spend), and I’ll also be doing the Jared Christmas ornament promo, which I’m super excited about! I know that I’ll be getting the Sweet Panda, but not sure what else. Probably the pretty Celestial Mosaic – maybe to go on my Halloween bracelet. I’m not sure whether the Mosaic charm will look too blue and not go with the black/orange theme I’ve got going on at the moment:
I’ll also be keeping my eyes peeled for that new US-exclusive Happiness charm. I know that it’s hardly value for money at $60 USD, but it’s actually just the kind of thing I’ve been looking for, and I would really like one!
I know that I’m behind on my comments (again!) but I should have some time this weekend to get stuck in to them! :)
What are you looking forward to this month? Have you made any exciting purchases lately?
