Today’s post brings my next Pandora SS18 preview, with an overview of all the accompanying jewellery coming out next month with the Pandora Spring 2018 collection! I previewed the charms and bracelets earlier this week, but this preview offers a detailed look at the rings, necklaces and earrings coming out too.
The collection is due out worldwide on 15 March – I don’t normally get too excited for the non-charm jewellery, but there are some really pretty pieces included this time around I think. Read on for the preview!
I’m starting off with some of the nature-themed rings, which I think are some of the nicest designs in the collection. The Glorious Blooms is priced at $95 USD.
Next, we have what I think is my favourite design from this whole set – the Spring Bird ring. It’s plain silver, beautifully oxidised and just so sweet! It’s like Pandora crossed with Trollbeads, I think – that kind of older, old-fashioned kind of detail but much cuter than TB’s usual aesthetic. It’s priced at $45 USD.
The Dreamy Dragonfly has elements of the same older aesthetic in its oxidised wing detailing, but overall looks more contemporary. It’s priced at $70 USD. The Enchanted Crown is a design that I hypothetically like but I think I’d need to see how it actually looks on your finger. It’s retailing for $80 USD.
The Heart Swirls is mostly plain silver, but has a focal point decorated in pavé. This brings the RRP up a little to $65 USD.
The Chandelier Droplets matches the spacer from my earlier preview, and is priced at $60 USD.
I like the pretty little silver hearts on the inside of the Swirling Droplets band – not that you’ll see it when you’re wearing it! This one will be $45 USD.
The Signature Hearts of Pandora is another rare plain silver design, and is correspondingly more affordable at $45 USD.
The Arcs of Love is $65 USD.
This will also be available in a rainbow-coloured version, which cycles through from purple to blue across the ring. It’s also priced at $65 USD.
Next – necklaces! There are some interesting things included in this set. The rainbow theme continues with two new pavé necklaces. The Heart necklace is priced at $100 USD.
The Arch necklace doesn’t have quite so many CZs and so it’s a little cheaper at $80 USD. It comes on a 50cm chain.
The Chandelier Droplets is a very classic design, priced at $100 USD.
And now we get on to some of my favourites from this set! The Enchanted Tassel series of charms and jewellery has been some of the most popular with collectors from previews so far, and I think the design works particularly well in this necklace. It’s super pricey at $150 USD, but oh so pretty!
The Spring Bird makes a return in necklace form! This is also pretty like the ring, but I think the bar shape of the design is a little less elegant. Nevertheless, it’s very sweet and a little more affordable at $90 USD.
The Dreamy Dragonfly looks pretty as a necklace, priced at $90 USD.
Next, we have something a little more unusual! This is described in the catalogue as being a brooch or a pendant. I guess you can wear it as either, although I’d like to see the back of it to see how it works. it’s quite pricey at $125 USD. It’s got quite a tropical feel to it, and wouldn’t be out of place in the summer collection.
Our next interesting piece is this pretty choker. Pandora did flirt with bringing out a fabric choker last year, and it must have encouraged them to produce a proper silver version. This is a rather pretty design, not that I would wear a choker, and I could see it being popular with younger buyers. It’s $100 USD.
The Spring Birds will also be available in these silver hoops – these have even more cute details on them, with little tree stumps cut into the silver. So pretty! These are $75 USD.
The Ladybug Meadow earrings are another of my favourite pieces from this collection! That purple enamel is just so sweet. They’re priced at $60 USD.
The Enchanted Tassels earrings look lovely, but I wonder whether they’d be rather heavy with so much silver! They’re tailing for $125 USD.
The Chandelier Droplets are finished with a large hanging CZ at the base of each earring, and will be a little pricey at $125 uSD.
The Elegant Waves I guess tie into the water-themed beads we saw in my previous Spring preview – but the design is pretty abstract. They’re priced at $70 USD.
The Enchanted Crown studs will be $55 USD.
The Heart Swirls will be $55 USD.
The Playful Wink is an odd choice of design to turn from charm into earrings, I think, but I guess they’re kind of fun! They’ll retail for $40 USD, so they’re a little cheaper than most things listed here.
Finally, we have matching rainbow earrings, priced at $55 USD.
As I said, I can normally be more reasonable about the non-charm jewellery and I don’t get over-excited about collecting it in the same way I do the bracelets. However, I love the Spring Bird ring and, if there weren’t so many designs from the regular Spring 2018 charms that I already wanted, I’d be definitely putting it on my wish list! As it is, we will have to see how my budget falls. ^^ Some more designs in that kind of detailed, heavy silver style would be very welcome.
I was so pleased to read how enthused you all were about the Spring 2018 collection in my previous post – I’ll be getting back to comments over the course of the weekend! :)
What do you think of the set? Is there anything you’ll be purchasing?
