*UPDATED with European pricing* Today’s post offers another look at the exclusive Pandora Club charm for 2015; I previously posted a sneak peek at this charm, and this preview offers a few more images, plus confirmation on some additional details surrounding its release. Pandora introduced its first Club exclusive charm last year, with a cute design based on the Pandora charm box, and this year’s offering is similar, but with a heart-shaped design instead.
This charm is due out with the Pandora Summer 2015 collection on the 28th of May.
Pandora Club Charm 2015
As with last year’s charm, this is a limited edition piece. To make it feel extra special, the stone in the charm is a genuine diamond – albeit of 0.01 carats. In North America, it is priced at $65 USD ($75 CAD) / 59 euros.
This Club charm design is based on the Autumn 2014 Princess charm, but offers a more simple design for those who may not have liked the very sparkly look of the original.
This is a global release, and will be available in all regions – although I only have details on US & European pricing currently.
Last year, Pandora put in place a voucher system which was meant to ensure that the Club charm was available to Pandora Club members only. However, retailers did not strictly adhere to this system, much to the chagrin of excited Club members who had gone in early with their vouchers. Moreover, it subsequently appeared at a discounted price in the winter sales, which further added to feelings of disillusionment. I don’t yet have details on whether we will see the voucher system again this time around; I guess we will have to see how Pandora tackles these issues this year!
I really loved last year’s Club charm, although I know a lot of people didn’t – even though it was bulky compared to other charms, I liked the originality of the concept. <3
I’m a little undecided on whether I want this year’s. While it’s undoubtedly pretty, it represents yet another heart charm from Pandora, and furthermore it’s based on an existing design from a previous collection. I liked the quirkiness of the original. Having said that, it is due out in Summer and I’m not hankering after too much from that collection; so I may have room on my wish list for this Club charm. ^^
Is this charm on your wish list? Do you like to collect Pandora’s limited edition pieces?
