Today brings one of my final Pandora Autumn 2018 collection previews, with an overview of the all the rings, necklaces and earrings coming out later this month! Due out on 30 August, this season’s jewellery features minimal colour, focusing instead on plain silver detailing or clear CZ accents. They’ll make nice complements to the vibrant gold and rose finishes offered by the Rose and Shine pieces.
This post only covers the regular Moments collection jewellery – I have already previewed the charms coming out. Read on to see all the jewellery! 💍
Pandora Autumn 2018 bracelets
The only non-charm bracelet comes in the form of this large Lace of Love bangle – it must be pretty sizeable, as it’s retailing for $275 USD / $305 CAD!
Pandora Autumn 2018 rings
To match the bracelet, we have the Lace of Love ring. A typical statement piece from Pandora, it features honeycomb detailing and retails for $115 USD / $130 CAD.The Lively Wish ring is one of my favourites of the rings, priced at $45 USD / $50 CAD. The Open Grains is the other, priced at $45 USD / $50 CAD. The Regal Beauty will be $45 USD / $50 CAD. It’s hard to tell just how oxidised it is from the stock image – it looks like it might be quite shiny in person. The Timeless Zigzag will be $45 USD / $50 CAD. The Shimmering Zigzag will be $75 USD / $85 CAD. The Princess Wish is a rather nice design, offering a more elegant version of some of the previous ‘princess’ Pandora rings. It’s $75 USD / $85 CAD.The Enchanted Crown ring design from earlier in the year features here once again, this time with a mixture of clear and black CZs. It’s priced at $75 USD / $85 CAD. This signature style ring is another item that doesn’t crop in the North American catalogue, so I am sans name or price for this one!
The Alluring Hearts ring will be priced at $75 USD / $85 CAD.
Now, the final tidbit for rings is a later addition to this post! An Australian source of mine has just let me know that the Floating Locket rings, which were meant to be out earlier this year, look to have been added to AU/NZ order forms for AW18. Hopefully this will translate to a global release for AW18 :)
Also for Australian collectors – there’s a 3-for-2 rings offer starting on Thursday! 💍💍💍
*UPDATED* This ring appears in some pre-release material but not others, so I’m not sure whether it’s definitely still coming.
Pandora Autumn 2018 necklaces
First for necklaces, we have a new ‘seasonal’ version of the Floating Locket. This will only be available for a limited time, retailing for $115 USD / $130 CAD. The stone is synthetic faceted amethyst! Rather an interesting one.
Next, we have another locket necklace – however, this is not a ‘floating’ locket and you can’t put charms in it. It comes filled with a mix of pink and purple CZs, which will catch and gather on the different silver branches within the necklace. I rather like this, so long as the CZs wouldn’t end up bunched at the bottom – the little bow detailing and the filigree along the side of the locket are so pretty. It’s priced at $125 USD / $140 CAD. There’s a new plain chain coming out, priced at $65 USD / $75 CAD. This is 70cm in length.The Regal Key design attracted a lot of attention in my Rose preview, and it’s just as nice here in silver! It’s also half the price at $100 USD / $110 CAD.
The United Regal Hearts is a more contemporary take on the whole regal theme, priced at $90 USD / $100 CAD. In a nod to the harvest theme running through the Autumn collection, we have the Floating Grain necklace, priced at $100 USD / $110 CAD. I love the little knotted motif at the top of it. The next two necklaces again didn’t feature in the North American catalogue, so I don’t have further details on them.
Pandora Autumn 2018 earrings
The Curved Grains are lovely in their simplicity, retailing for $50 USD / $55 CAD. The Forever Pandora Hearts studs will be $55 USD / $60 CAD. Pandora’s blurb for these earrings suggests that the studs are detachable from the sparkling CZ ‘jackets’ around them.The Princess Wish earrings will be $100 USD / $110 CAD. Again, I don’t have details yet for this pair – not in the NA catalogue I saw. :) Next, we have two ‘regal’ designs. The more dramatic of the two are the Regal Droplets, with lovely silver filigree detailing. The drops on the end are large CZs, not glass. These will retail for $100 USD / $110 CAD. The Regal Hearts offer a stripped-back stud version of the same design, priced at $45 USD / $50 CAD.The Oval Sparkle earrings will retail for $75 USD / $85 CAD.The Hoops of Versatility come in two different sizes. The first is priced at $60 USD / $70 CAD.
While the smaller hoops are $50 USD / $55 CAD:
Now, I do believe that the idea with these hoops is that the end of them will pop off like an open bangle, allowing you to add a charm:
Now, speaking of Essence – I was going to do a separate Pandora Essence preview. However, there were only three charms in this set, and I just realised that one of them is not in the most recent material I have from Pandora, so it’s probably just down to two charms. Not really worth its own post :( Here they are:
There are, however, Pandora Disney Essence charms coming out, so there are some more interesting options on the way! :)
For me, I think the stars of this collection are to be found in the necklaces. The Regal Key necklace is very pretty, with its solid, and yet delicate silver detailing, and the pretty pastel crystals in the Locket necklace are also rather sweet! As usual, however, the collector in me yearns more for charms and bracelets, so I don’t imagine these pieces will be my first port of call on launch day.
Are any of these going on your wish list?
