It’s been a while since we talked about the Pandora Summer 2015 collection and, now that the Spring and Mother’s Day collections have made their début, I thought it would be good to take a look at some HQ images of the new summer jewellery coming out! This year’s collection is called Escape to Paradise, and offers a variety of beach and holiday-themed charms, with tropical blues and green as its colour scheme.
The collection is due out worldwide on the 28th of May.
I also have some stills from the Pandora Summer 2015 campaign video, which offer some lovely close-up live shots of the charms. :) All images included in this preview are by Pandora, so please do not reproduce them without credit!
First up, we have two limited edition leather bracelets making their début for Summer 2015. I have become something of a leather bracelet fiend recently, and I’m really quite tempted by the new blue leather, which looks a pretty shade of cornflower blue in this stock image! It’s $50 USD.
The live shot from the Pandora campaign video suggests that this bracelet is rather a bright blue in person – however, I suspect it might look less luminous in a more natural light. I do very much like the combination of the blue leather with the blue Petite Facets charm, however.
The second leather bracelet for Summer 2015 is a light green colour, also priced at $50 USD.
Continuing the colour scheme of green and blue, we have two new mosaic pavé charms for Summer 2015! The first is called the Ocean Mosaic, and is priced at $65 USD.
The second is the Sky Mosaic, which features a pretty array of tropical blue stones. It is also $65 USD.
There will be two new shades of the Petite Facets to match, as well! The blue Petite Facets is a lovely shade of powder blue – nicely cool and refreshing.
I think the green version might be my favourite, however; it has a slight hint of teal to it which is really gorgeous. They are $40 USD each.
The colours look amazing in this shot from the campaign video!
There will also be a green version of the Inspiration Within spacer, which will retail for $30 USD.
The Sparkling Palm Tree is priced at $45 USD.
The Symbol of Stability features an anchor design, and would be perfect for travel or nautical bracelet themes! It’s priced at $35 USD.
The Playful Dolphin has just a touch of sparkle on the bail, and is priced at $45.
The Sparkling Snake offers a pavé version of Pandora’s original design, and will retail at $65 USD. The black stones they have used for its eyes are a nice touch – but the original face of the silver snake, with its slightly cunning smile, had a little more character I think.
The Sea Turtle offers another re-design of a classic Pandora design; he now comes with a pavé shell and cubic zirconia eyes. He is retailing for $60 USD.
The Tropicana silver work is a simple, yet fun, representation of sunny beach holidays, with its palm tree motif. It’s nicely affordable at $35 USD.
For gold lovers, there is sadly only one option – the Tropicana openwork is also available in 14kt yellow gold. It’s just a tad pricier than its silver counterpart at $250 USD.
My personal favourite of this collection is the beautiful Orchid, retailing at $45 USD – I love the rich colour of the pink/purple enamel! This would look lovely worn on a bracelet or as a necklace pendant.
Finally for charms, we have a series of heart flag dangles, each representing a different country. These are all priced at $50 USD.
This year’s accompanying jewellery set for summer is a relatively small one. First up, we have the Intricate Lace ring, which offers a beautiful lattice design, studded with cubic zirconia. It’s $65 USD.
The Sparkling Snake ring offers an edgier twist on this collection’s ring, with its abstract snake design. It will be $80 USD.
The Tropical Palm ring will be $80 USD, and features cubic zirconia detailing around the edges of the leaves.
The Tropical Palm necklace will be $125 USD.
While summer collections never appeal to me as much as those of other seasons, there are a number of pieces that I like here. The Orchid charm is stunning, and offers something for those who aren’t as attracted by beach-y designs and themes. I’m also really drawn to the gorgeous blue and green/teal colour scheme, which is beautifully cool and refreshing in tone – I’m particularly eager to see the new Petite Facets and the LE leather bracelets in person!
Are you looking forward to this collection? Are any pieces going on your wish list?
