*UPDATED 23/1/15 with more pictures* There have been a number of Pandora media previews this week, taking place in New York, Prague, Hong Kong and Budapest, and consequently we have a few lovely new live images of the upcoming Pandora Spring/Summer 2015 collections! These give us some great shots of many of the floral pieces, although I find that attendees never seem to take as many pictures of the jewellery as you’d expect at these events, with many focusing instead on the admittedly beautiful décor. ;)
The theme for this year’s spring preview events features delicate white florals, with pretty sprigs of flowers and delicately-arranged vases of roses. If more pictures emerge, then I will update this article! :)
Pandora Spring/Mother’s Day 2015
In the centre of the bracelet are the Dazzling Daisy and Sparkling Primrose; you can also spot the Ballet Slipper and, to the right of it, a gorgeous new CZ floral openwork. It also looks like there is a new Pandora Rose charm, or possibly a yellow gold charm – I’m intrigued as to what that could be, I really can’t make it out!
I only have a text list of all the names of the new pieces debuting for Spring, and it’s hard to match them up to all the pictures that have come out of the jewellery – but I think this might be the New Beginnings necklace. It looks absolutely stunning here; a great example of how to do pavé detailing right.
The following picture is one of my favourites to emerge of the new Spring pieces. The pink Petite Facets charm looks absolutely gorgeous here, with a pretty milky colour beneath its shiny surface. My eye is also drawn to the Darling Daisy Meadow clip, with its cluster of white flowers – I’d love to pair that with some delicate two-tone pieces.
Next up, we have a look at some of the accompanying jewellery for Spring. These include some gorgeous butterfly and dragonfly earrings, and some new Primrose studs and rings.
It looks like some attendees got to take home an early souvenir from the new collections – one of the new Primrose charms, detailed in white enamel.
You can see this charm in the following campaign images. They look gorgeous, and I can’t wait for high-res versions to come out.
*UPDATED* The subsequent images by Elle Taiwan give us a wonderfully clear look at some of the new pieces. Here, you can see a number of new stylings put together with the new pieces, ranging from delicate pinks to soft greens.
This picture shows off the popular new green floral muranos beautifully! The colour gives a fresh, natural look to the flower, with green and brown stems, white petals and a little yellow centre.
Here, you can catch a glimpse of the new Dazzling Daisy clips and pendant.
The Dazzling Daisies also have a new set of rings.
Finally from Elle Taiwan is this lovely picture. This bracelet styling shows off the new butterfly pavé dangles and a purple enamel floral charm, while, in the background, you can catch the glimmer of that lovely butterfly necklace. It looks to me like those Love of my Life clips are yellow gold, too.
The subsequent images aren’t as high-res, and it’s harder to make out the new pieces. I thought I’d include them nonetheless, as you can pick out some new charms and details. Here we have what appears to be a new heart-key necklace, and some more shots of the new Mother’s Day jewellery on the left.
While the details are hard to make out in this picture, the shot of the new floral murano on the right reveals the depth of its detailing, hinting at some beautiful swirls of colour. At the front, we have another look at the new locket charm for Mother’s Day 2015.
Here again, we can see the new Red Pavé Apple charm at the centre of this design.
You can see here the front of the new Mother’s Day card dangle, which features a little two-tone heart at its centre.
Pandora Essence Spring 2015
These shots aren’t the best, but they do feature the new SS15 pavé range of Essence charms styled alongside the original natural stone beads. This does suggest to me that they will not be replacing the existing natural stone charms, but will be sold alongside them.
Pandora Summer 2015
Excitingly we also have a little sneak peek at the Pandora Summer 2015 collection. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but it potentially looks like a lighter blue leather bracelet. On the bracelet itself is one of two new pavé lights charm for Summer 2015, called Ocean Mosaic – it features some teal/green multi-coloured stones, although it’s hard to see from the photo. Also pictured here is a pavé palm tree dangle, and what look to be two blue versions of the new Petite Facets charms.
I’ll admit that my initial glimpses of the Spring 2015 collection left me lukewarm – it seemed like there were too many gaudy pavé pieces, and not enough substance. However, the more I see, the more enthused I am getting for this collection! While many undoubtedly represent a rehash of last year’s pieces, for me there is no denying that some of these charms and jewellery are nonetheless very pretty. I love the new Darling Daisy clip and spacer, while that statement butterfly necklace is stunning. The pink Petite Facets also looked surprisingly lovely; I hadn’t noticed them as much previously.
With the possible wider release of the Pandora Rose collection this season, I’d love to pair some of the new white Primrose and Darling Daisy pieces with the rose-plated charms – they’d make a lovely combination, as you can see in the first image of this article.
Are any of these pieces appealing to you?
