Today’s post brings my next look at the line-up for 2018, with a sneak peek at the Pandora Club charm 2018! This has been a tradition since 2014, wherein Pandora release a limited edition charm every year to honour its Pandora Club members; you can scroll back through the Club charm tag to see charms from previous years.
For 2018, the Club charm is coming out a little earlier than usual – it’s scheduled to make its debut in January with the Pandora Valentine’s 2018 collection. Read on for a sneak peek!
Pandora Club Charm 2018 preview
Previous Club charms have stuck very firmly to heart motifs, but Pandora appear to have gone a little off piste with 2018’s design. The charm is a globe, with little silver hearts dotted across it, and the words ‘More Love’ in a banner across it. The date is on the back of the charm, as is traditional, and a little diamond in the word ‘Love’ adds to the effect – as is also traditional!
This will be $65 USD / $75 CAD.
I like the concept of this design a lot – I’m relieved not to see another heart, and I think the concept of a global community is so core to the Pandora collectors’ ethos. One of the most common things I hear from readers is how kind collectors are to each other, busy helping each other to get exclusive charms and promos, or swapping info, advice, bracelet styling tips. It’s amazing how many wonderful people I have met through the blog, Instagram, Facebook, etc. One of the fun things about my collection is that charms have been sent to me from all over the world – the US, Canada, Singapore, Dubai, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Austria, Australia, Hong Kong – it’s a very long and wonderful list of places! And I’ve helped people from all over to get charms as well.
All in all, I expect that I’ll be getting this charm, especially as I’m not desperate for anything from the main Valentine’s 2018 collection.
What do you think of next year’s Club charm? Will it be going on your wish list?
I too like the concept of this design for the club charm. I am so glad it’s not another heart motif. I have given the 2017 club charm a miss but am looking forward to the debut of this one. ?
I agree! I’ve decided to keep an eye out on RueLaLa sales for the 2017 charm, but it isn’t one I have to have. I like this design better, and I love the meaning you take in it, Ellie!
I’m doing the same with the 2017 charm! ^^ But as I don’t want much from Valentine’s Day 2018, this charm is well timed and I expect I’ll get it. :D
Hi Jen! I know, that was my issue with the 2017 one as well. The locket design was cute, but it wasn’t different enough from the other hearts for me to go wow! :)
Absolutely! I will be getting this charm. With all that is happening globally what a wonderful message! You can never have too much love, for yourself or your fellow human. The use of the little hearts dotting the globe have real purpose on this charm. I too am glad the charm itself isn’t another heart motif. This charm is at the top of my valentine list. You are right about the Pandora community, very kind indeed.
I hope this charm is very popular and encourages more club charms with a broader appeal. What a lovely surprise from Pandora, well done.
Hi Lisa! Absolutely, that’s another thing I like about it – it applies very nicely to the ‘Pandora club’, so to speak, of collectors around the world, and just as a nice antidote to all the strange things going on in the world at the moment too.
So glad to hear you like it too! Thank you for commenting :)
Thank you for the post! I like the concept of the charm too! I love how much the Pandora community from all over help each other and I have received alot of help too! I like the meaning it represents for the Pandora community and the fact that it’s not in heart! I’m gonna get it for sure! I have the past club charms and just need to collect them all XD!!
Hi Cindy! Yes, it’s such a lovely community! All the charms and letters trundling backwards and forwards across the world, haha. :)
I agree with you on all points: happy for the change from a heart and I love the global concept because Pandora is so international. This brings the collector community together! Love it!
Yay, glad you agree! I do think it’s a nice concept for a club charm. Feels more like an idea that’s actually for the fans, rather than a generic heart. :)
I really like this charm, as well as, the global concept. I, too, am glad to see something a bit different from the usual heart motif. Well done Pandora! I also like that it’s being released with the Valentine’s collection. I don’t normally get a lot, if anything, from the Valentine’s release, so the timing is right for me.
Hi Emily! Yes, my thoughts exactly. I was a bit :/ about the fact that I didn’t really want anything from Valentine’s, so this is very welcome! I’ll be getting this and the God of Fortune. I hope this charm comes in a nice box, as usual!
Hi Ellie, this design is really a surprise, I used to put all my Club charms (2015-2016-2017) in the same bracelet (I missed 2014 :( ) but the 2018 is perfect for my travel bracelet! This is a good idea because “Pandora girls” are a lovely community! Thanks for the good news and have a happy Xmas!
Hi Priscilla! Ah, lovely! It’ll be a very nice addition to your travel bracelet. :D Enjoy the run-up to Christmas as well and thanks for commenting!
I love this charm too. I think it’s their best club charm to date. It is way more versatile than the hearts. And I like the message. It is fitting and timely. I will definitely be getting this one.
Thanks for the peek.
Hi Deborah! Agreed! It’s nice in that it’s a message that has a universal appeal, much like a generic heart charm, but that also carries a more specific meaning for the Pandora community itself.
Stock images are such trash. This one needs a live image to sell it, at least to me, but then globes don’t excite me, and this is very similar to the globe clip, but without the hearts. I was hoping for glass this time around, with a diamond, the date, no hearts, maybe in the color of Pandora’s signature ribbon with a little shiny cream (like the box) swirled in.
That was quite a specific hope, haha :) but your idea does sound lovely! The signature ribbon is a very pretty colour.
Nah, I wasn’t so specific in wishing; that’s just a toss off the top of my head stuck into a weird sentence intro. :-) I’m just dying for something different from Pandora. A globe just isn’t different for them, and decked in hearts, ugh, I’m tired of hearts! I know Pandora is mostly jewelry so-sweet-it-hurts-your-face-to-look-at-it, but I think they’d do well to toss in a few more unsweetened items.
I figured, I was just joking :) and I completely agree with you!
How will I be able to purchase this charm? I don’t know if I’m in a club or not.
You don’t have to be in the club. Anyone can buy it. :-) Pandora Club really has no special purpose.
Ah, it’s not restricted – anyone can buy it :) if you want to join Pandora club, you have to go Pandora.net! They sometimes email with offers or sneak peeks, but it’s mainly just a newsletter – there isn’t any real benefit to it.
I have all the club charms and just realized I did not get the 2017…to much excitement in all the other charms! Well, I might need it and 2018 – another addiction. However will miss no diamond!
I didn’t get 2017 either! I do intend to get it at some point, it just wasn’t top of my list this year. There is a diamond in this one, it’s in the ‘LOVE’. :)
OMG I LOVE IT!!!! As a flight attendant, I really need this cute globe charm.. it’s the cutest charm I’ve ever seen and it will perfectly fits to my travel bracelet ?
Aw, this is a great charm to represent your work! :D so pleased to hear that you like it!
It is indeed a different concept but it is round and all silver , hence versatile and comfortable to wear. I think you have been very accurate about Pandora’s community. Those small actions that bring happiness to another human being make the world a better place. So I’m already considering it very seriously, as a homage to that community of generous ladies who have helped others at some point. Who knows, maybe one day I can help too!
Oh! And Ellie, you should be proud of yourself for all the work and dedication you put into you blog. It’s not only the excitement of knowing what’s comming next or how we are going to plan our purchases. The most important thing is that there’s someone behind it, who if I may put it this way, brings other people together.
And now dear ladies, dear Ellie, good night and Love to the world.
Thank you, Marie! ^^ You are a very lovely piece of the Pandora community yourself, whether you do get the chance to send anyone any beads or not. I always enjoy your comments! :)
So pleased that you like this charm, too – enjoy your weekend!
:-) Hi Ellie,
I’m a huge fan of hearts, hence this charm doesn’t really appeal to me, as much as I like the idea of Pandora collectors helping each other!.
Have a very HAPPY week.
Hi Claudia! Haha, oh no! You’re one of the few in favour of the status quo I think ^^ Have a great weekend!
I love this charm as it represents what we need today, Love, there are so many unfortunate things happening all over the world.This charm symbolizes love for all
Definitely! It’s a very troubling time we’re living in at the moment, and this charm is a teeny tiny little antidote, I think :)
I’m really happy with this charm! I will be getting it. I will actually probably start a new them with it that represents love, unity, and equality! Can’t wait. Thank you for the sneak peek!
Sounds like it will be a beautiful bracelet!
Yay, I’m glad you like it! I just got the mesh bracelet in the uS sale and I’m thinking of starting a mini ‘happiness’ design on it, and this might work for that :) you’re welcome!
Can you or someone get me the Fairytale Fish Charm (No. 792014CCZ) from Russia? My daughter’s nickname is princess Fish.
Hi Debe, I’m not able to get hold of that one – I had tremendous trouble finding it myself to start with. I’d join some of the Pandora FB pages (pandora’s tribe etc) to see if someone can help you :)
Thank you for your reply. I greatly appreciate it.
You are welcome! :)
I love the design and like you said the message behind it there are so many lovely ladies on Instagram including you.
Aw, and the same goes for you Nicola! :) You’ve been on the blog for a long time now, too, and I do appreciate all your lovely comments ?
Thank you so much for this update. I am so pleased that it isn’t a heart. ? The only club charm I have is the first one – the box. Pandora sated my appetite for hearts a long time ago. This design is a pleasant surprise, and I really like the globe and the sentiment. It really is what the world needs more of. ? I will be definitely picking up one of these once they are available. Thank you again for doing such a great job keeping us updated. Happy Holidays!
The 2014 club charm is probably my favourite as well <3 although the 2016 heart is pretty, too. Glad to hear that you're a fan of this design too! Thanks for commenting, and happy holidays to you too ^^
I feel like the Grinch after reading all these lovely comments – but this charm has zero appeal to me. I do appreciate the lovely Pandora community that you have created Ellie with your blog.
Haha, no need to feel grinchy! This particular charm just happened to strike a bit of a chord with me, and mainly due to its concept rather than its execution necessarily. And thanks, Lozzie, the Pandora community is a lovely bunch! ?
Like it, will get it for sure.
Not sure about it. Have to see it in person.
I really like it. I am going to get it for sure. Also on my list is the CNY 2018 charm, which i also love. Like you nothing grabs me from the Valentines 2018 collection this time around. Ellie thanks for all you do with this blog, I do not know how I would keep up without it. Merry Christmas and I hope Santa brings all the Pandora on your wishlist..
I was going to say, your wish list is an exact match for mine currently! I’m open to maybe getting the new bracelet if it appeals to me in person though :) thank you Stephanie, it’s my pleasure! Merry Christmas to you too, and I hope that you also get some Pandora goodies before the year is out ^^
I liked that too, many be a bit too many CZ’s on the locket part. I was concerned about how secure it will be. I am usually a very easy sell on new bracelet designs I just have visions of the lock coming undone and getting lost. Then trying to get a replacement lock from Pandora. Hey there is a new product line for them. The only recent bracelet that I have not bought is the mesh bangle. Just need convincing that I need it..
