*UPDATED 28/11/14* It’s out! See live shots and details here. I first offered a sneak peek of the Pandora 2014 Black Friday charm a month ago in my post on this year’s winter gift sets for North America, but today’s post brings a dedicated preview of this year’s charm! This will be the fourth year that Pandora has offered a limited edition charm to celebrate Black Friday in North America, and it’s a tradition that I personally really enjoy. <3 This charm is set to be released on the 28th of November.
Pandora Black Friday 2014: Christmas Wish
This year’s charm, entitled Christmas Wish, is similar to the Winter 2014 Christmas Ornament charm. It’s an ornament dangle, featuring pavé detailing and some little Christmas trees inset into the bauble itself. The date, while not visible in the picture, is inscribed on the base of the dangle.
It will retail for $75 in the US, and will also be available as part of a special Black Friday gift set – you can read the details in my original post here! This charm, as always, is limited edition, but retailers do tend to get plenty of stock in – the Black Friday 2013 charm is still available in many stores, while the 2012 charm was offered last month at a discounted price in a Rue La La sale!
The charm will be sold with a white leatherette gift box, much the same as in previous years.
Reaction from fans when I first published my sneak peek of this charm was a bit mixed, which surprised me a little. I know that the use of pavé detailing has become somewhat controversial among Pandora collectors, and I share those concerns, but its utilisation really does appeal to me in this case. This charm is definitely on my wish list, and I’d love to see what it looks like in person! :)
What do you think of this year’s Black Friday charm? Will you be purchasing it?
