I have an exciting post today, with a preview of the Pandora Spring 2018 collection! :D Featuring some cheerful rainbow colours, aquatic blues and adorable animals, this year’s Spring collection moves away from the traditional florals and draws from a wider array of natural themes.
The Pandora Spring 2018 collection is due out worldwide on the 15th of March; so you won’t be able to buy any of the products featured here until then. Thank you all for your patience after the pictures on my initial preview posts got taken down; I’m so happy to be posting this article, I can’t tell you!
Read on for a closer look at all the charms & bracelets coming out (I will feature jewellery in a later post!).
Pandora Spring 2018 collection preview
Starting with the charms, I just want to say that my themes for each collage are a little nebulous, as there’s quite a lot of overlap between the charms. ^^ This first one features beads inspired by the natural world, drawing on rainbow and water-themed motifs. I think it’s great that Pandora have looked beyond flowers for a little nature-themed inspiration – this is something a little different.
The cheerfulness of the rainbow designs is refreshing, and you could use the rainbow dangle to represent pride, too.
The next collage has some of my favourite designs from this set! The entirety of the Enchanted collection is so pretty, and it’s so refreshing to see the majority of the pieces detailed in plain silver; the safety chain is an absolute must. The strands of the Tassel are slinky, and I think in terms of practicality it would probably work best on a necklace. The Enchanted Heart clip reminds me of decorated gingerbread; it would look great with the other enchanted tea party pieces in my next collage.
There is also one other decorative bead that I missed off my original collage – this is the Pearly Dreams charm, which will be available in both pink and pearlescent enamel.
Next, we have more nature-themed beads, which again contain some of the prettiest and quirkiest designs IMO! :) The Enchanted Garden Glass is an instant contender for my favourite Pandora murano, depending on how it looks in person – I’m always head over heels for pastels, and I love little bumblebees. The Enchanted Tea Pot is listed as having pink enamel and CZ, so I’m guessing it opens up to reveal something inside?
The Sparkling Snail is very a quirky little bead – I wasn’t sure when I first saw it, as I think the pavé will make it quite pricey, but it’s such fun that I’ll have to have it! :P
Of this set, the Arcs of Love safety chain is my favourite – I’m considering using it to finish off my CNY red bracelet, which is on the Moments bracelet with the Love of my Life clip clasp. However, I do also like the Ribbon Heart Glass beads – it’s nice to see Pandora getting creative again with their use of glass – and the Perfect Pals is rather sweet.
If any of you end up getting the Bella Bot (which will also be available in Rose), I would absolutely love to see how you style her!
Finally for charms, we have some new petites launching! These are worn with the floating locket charms and necklaces.
To finish off with, there are three new silver Moments charm bracelet designs. The most innovative, perhaps, is the Sliding Bracelet, which comes in one size and is adjusted to your wrist. You can wear it with charms, much like the regular Smooth bracelet.
My favourite is the Wildflower Meadow, which is what I’ll be purchasing to wear with my new Spring charms. I’d have preferred the clasp without the purple CZs, but the little enamel ladybird dangling from it is such a cute detail that I am sold!
I’m aware of mixed feelings about this collection online; however, overall, personally I haven’t been so excited for a long while. I love all things fairytale, so I have to have the teacup and teapot. The little mouse reminds me of a sugar mouse, so you could wear all three together!
My absolute favourite is the honeybee murano, however. So pretty and detailed! I’m also planning on putting the Rainbow glass on the mesh bracelet with the Club charm, Home Sweet Home bead and the So Many Reasons to be Happy dangle as a mini happiness bracelet design. I posted a picture of this recently on Instagram:
All in all, my wish list from my collection is pretty big – I need to whittle it down a bit, but so far I’m considering all the safety chains, the Enchanted Tea Cup and Pot, the Mouse, Snail and the Ladybug petite, and the the two muranos.
What do you think of this new collection? Do you see any must-haves?
