Today brings an update on the Pandora Valentine’s 2018 collection, with a sneak peek at the upcoming jewellery gift sets, a look at what might be the Jared exclusive charm for this release, and three new Disney beads!
The Pandora Valentine’s Day 2018 collection is due out next month – for a full preview, please see my post here. Otherwise, read on for some additional updates on this upcoming release! :)
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2018 gift sets
First on the agenda, we have a variety of gift set previews! I don’t have pricing for many of these, and some of the images are tad on the low res side, so this is more a sneak peek than a preview proper. :)
In the US, the first gift set to show you is the Kiss Me bangle set, which will include the Glitter Kiss charm, a silver bangle and a pair of earrings. The set is accompanied by a pink make-up bag.
The next set is the Stacked Open Bangle gift set. The picture is only low res, and it’s hard to make out the details, but it looks like you get two open bangles, a pair of earrings, the Shape of Love charm and then your choice of one of two silver heart pendant designs. These look to be versions of the usual engravable heart dangle, but I can’t see what’s written on either!
Then, there are two charm ‘gift sets’. These usually just mean that the charm will be sold in a special box for a limited amount of time. The charms in question for this collection are the Pandora Club 2018 bead and the Kiss More, the latter being sold with a red lip bag.
In Canada, there will be two jewellery gift sets. The Tree of Love will include two of the new Valentine’s Explosion of Love clips and the new Tree of Love charm on the silver heart clasp bracelet. The Lock your Promise set includes two of the new Valentine’s heart earrings, the heart-shaped Floating Locket and three new Valentine’s petites, and will retail for $175 CAD.
It’s hard to make out the details on any of these, but I suspect that they are the same as the Australian gift sets pictured below. I love the pink boxes!
And then two charm ‘gift sets’ – one is the Club charm, like the US, but the other is the Glitter Kiss, which differs from the US.
Australia & New Zealand
In Australia and New Zealand, the gift sets are very similar to those in Canada. I don’t yet prices for these either, however!
There will also be a CNY-themed gift set, featuring the red leather bracelet and the silver dog pendant, as it’s going to be the Year of the Dog.
I don’t have info for any other regions yet, however.
Pandora Valentine’s 2018 previously unseen charms
My second update includes four Pandora Valentine’s 2018 charms that we haven’t seen before!
First up, we have a new dangle charm, featuring baby pinks. This one wasn’t shown in the regular catalogue for the Valentine’s 2018 collection, so my guess is that it’s the Jared exclusive charm for this season.
Next, excitingly, we have three previously unseen Disney charms. I assume that these are Disney Parks exclusives, but I’ve not got any concrete information on them yet, so I don’t know where or when they’re being released exactly. They were in the Valentine’s set of stock images, but the Pandora Disney Parks collections often run on their schedule.
The first of these is a new Epcot charm, featuring a Mickey portrait design with a twist:
The next charms I’m going to be fascinated to see the reaction to. These are ‘cutie’ versions of Mickey and Minnie. They remind me of Disney tsum tsums in style – very ‘kawaii’ (cute!). I kind of like these, in spite of myself…
I don’t have much that I’m looking to get from the Valentine’s launch – the Club charm is probably my only must-have so far, along with the CNY 2018 God of Fortune – but I’m open to the new charm bracelet, perhaps! However, I do quite like the ‘cutie’ Disney charms, in spite of myself – however, it’s definitely a kind of novelty thing, and I don’t imagine these will be anything other than expensive, and I have no idea how I’d use them, haha.
I think that the US gift sets are, as always, very nicely done and the extra gifts are a bonus! The Stacked Open Bangle gift set would be rather an amazing present! The Lock Your Promise Floating Locket gift set strikes me as being particularly nice for Canada and Australia, too.
What do you think of these new beads? Or do any of the gift sets catch your eye?
