Today’s post brings my monthly Pandora news round-up, with all the details on what’s coming up for August 2018! This month packs a few promos in the run-up to the launch of the Pandora Autumn 2018 collection, and I have some further details on both – and more! :)
Going forward, there’s lots of content coming up this month on the blog. I have some more Pandora Autumn 2018 previews to post, some further Pandora Pre-Autumn 2018 reviews, and some catch-ups on releases I missed – the Summer 2018 collection, the Modern LovePods, and the Pandora Disney Summer 2018 beads too!
Pandora Autumn 2018 collection launch
The biggest event on the horizon has to be the launch of the Pandora Autumn 2018 collection, which launches at the end of the month on 30 August! To whet your appetite for the collection, I have a few extra campaign images! One of my favourites is this one, which shows Bruno the Unicorn with the other PANDORA Friends. 🦄🐻🤖 There are more ‘friends’ coming for the Winter release, too.
I particularly love the stylings that focus on the regal/fairy-tale beads. The campaign arrangements are beautiful!
Finally, I have one more charm to show you from the regular Autumn 2018 collection that I missed off my original preview. This is another 14kt gold option – it’s not a Pandora Shine bead:
I have Pandora Essence Autumn 2018 and Pandora Autumn 2018 jewellery previews coming up to show you, too. I’m still talking to Pandora about whether any kind of Disney preview is going to be possible. :)
Pandora bracelet promo for the US
Exciting news for Pandora collectors in the US, as there will be a free bracelet promo running this month! This will be available in store and online. From 9–13 August, spend $100 USD or more and receive a bracelet of up to $65 USD value for free. Upgrades are available, wherein you can pay the difference and get a more expensive bracelet.
Unfortunately, the free item cannot be from the Shine or Disney collections. :(
If you have a Pandora credit card, there’s also a pre-sale for this event running from 3-5 August. This sale is also scheduled to be available in Canada – details in the section below! :)
Pandora promotions for August 2018
For shoppers in the US, the jewellery box promo continues while stocks last: spend $125 USD or more and get the beautiful white box below:
This looks beautiful:
In Canada, there’s currently a 30% off sale on retired items. After that, the next promo will be from 9-12 August – details of Canadian promos are often subject to change, but currently the plan is an offer to mirror the US bracelet promo. Spends of $125 CAD will get you a free bracelet of up to $75 CAD value.
In Singapore, the offer below will be running from today until 12 August:
In the UK, the 3-for-2 on charms and bracelets continues until 5 August.
I have already taken advantage of this offer, and have stocked up on some clips I was after!
The offer is still going on for a few more days, however, and it’s extreeeemely tempting to go back again lol, especially as I now work in the centre of town and walk right past the store each day to get to my car. I just need to remind myself that there are actually these things called bills to pay, and an unimpressed fiancé to confess to 🤔 (I kid, I kid. Mostly.)
Pandora Collegiate beads for the US
Pandora in the US often release engraved charms as an affordable way to cater to more specific demands within their own region – the latest set of exclusive engraved beads are in honour of US colleges. This is not something that I know a lot about, but it is something I’ve seen requested various times during my time blogging, so I hope that you like these, if you’ve been wanting them!
These are all engraved designs, retailing for $65 USD each:
There are live images of these beads from tiedyedeb, who as usual has taken lots of shots of the beads from different angles at her eBay store. Some of them are quite nice enamel designs in their own right, regardless of their college affiliations… I like the orange paw print particularly!

Pandora Pre-Autumn 2018 China exclusive Lovebirds charm release
You may remember that there was a Chinese exclusive Lovebirds charm listed as being part of the Pandora Pre-Autumn 2018 collection – this, however, did not make an appearance with the rest of the collection last month.
The bead has now been launched for Chinese Valentine’s Day, which falls later in the year than ours – this explains a little as to why China had this lone little exclusive that seemed so out of keeping with the rest of the Pre-Autumn 2018 collection! It’s retailing at ¥649, and you can see it at the Chinese eStore here. This helpful image shows why the charm is called ‘Lovebirds’ – it seems that the birds are silhouetted inside the charm:
Hat tip to Cindy Low for posting about this on Facebook! :)
In terms of my upcoming month, I will – mostly – be saving for the Autumn launch right at the tail end of it. However, the US bracelet promo is tempting to me as it would be a rather nice little opportunity to indulge in a few of the new Modern LovePods, which haven’t made it out here in the UK.
This is my first news round-up back, and I just wanted to say thank you again for your thoughtful, kind comments on my engagement post. They were wonderful, and I can’t tell you how happy it made me to read through them. I’m still in the process of replying to them all, and doing a few each day puts such a smile on my face! :)
To finish off this round-up, I leave you with this picture of Ruby the very naughty Cocker spaniel, which I found while rifling through some old files on my laptop 😅 (I will note that the bag was empty, and that no charms were hurt in the taking of this photo)
What are you excited for this month? Are you planning any purchases?
