Today’s post brings another update on the upcoming Pandora Autumn and Winter 2015 collections, with a selection of live shots from recent official press previews! Pandora have been hosting numerous AW15 previews for journalists and bloggers over the last couple of weeks, but pictures of the jewellery itself have been frustratingly hard to find – however, after previews in Romania and Thailand, we finally have some absolutely gorgeous shots of the new collections.
The Pandora Autumn 2015 collection will be out worldwide on the 27th of August; the Winter 2015 collection on the 29th of October. Just a warning that this post is rather picture-heavy, haha – there are lots of gorgeous images to sift through!
Pandora Autumn 2015 Live Shots
One of my favourite new Autumn 2015 pieces is the Locked Hearts charm, with its delicate two-tone detailing; if you missed out on the LE Vintage Heart charm from 2014, this would offers a great alternative!
It is a little hard to tell from this picture whether these are in fact the new CZ Fascinating Blush beads, or just the Autumn 2014 Fascinating Ochre bead. I’ve heard from a couple of sources that the new Fascinating CZ beads may be delayed and not available on the 30th of August with the rest of the collection – it’s notable that the green version is not pictured anywhere in this preview.
However, the Fascinating Ochre certainly does make a worthy substitute – it looks gorgeous with the Locked Heart and Lace Bontaique two-tone pieces.
In this shot, you can see some additional floral detailing on the new Dragonfly Meadow – how adorable! Also notable are the new plain silver Feathered clip, the Majestic Feather pendant and the new pink enamel heart dangle.
Pictured in this beautiful image are the new pale pink Eternity spacer, alongside the new Timeless Elegance pendant and Radiant Splendour. It’s worth noting that the Sweetheart charm, which saw a limited release for North America earlier this year, is seeing a wider release for the Autumn 2015 collection. I’m not sure which regions will be getting it exactly, but Asia will be for sure.
This bracelet shows off the collection’s new purple charms, including a new version of the Geometric Facets. However, the stand-out piece of this design for me is the Majestic Swan, just tucked into the left-hand corner of the bracelet. While Pandora + pavé often leads to overkill, the new Swan really does seem to me an example of how to get it right!
Here, you can see the new Hearts Tiara pieces:
Finally, we have a few shots of the accompanying Autumn 2015 rings and jewellery:
Pandora Winter 2015 Live Shots
In contrast, for Winter 2015 we have a nice selection of deep blues, cherry reds and delicate pinks. In the top right of this image, you can get a clear look at the Winter Geometric Facets, in a vivid icy blue and a delicate opalescent white. The new Blue Fascinating Iridescence also looks rather pretty – let’s hope no production issues get in the way with this one, too! ;)
The next few shots show off the new icy blue Winter pieces: while the icy blue of the Radiant Hearts looks pretty, I’m not as keen on the Crystalised Snowflake pendant (pictured centre), however.
In the next couple of shots, it’s worth noting that the Geometric Facets pictured are the deep blue ones from the Autumn 2015 collection – they go very nicely with the lighter Winter blues.
You can also pick out the new Dainty Bow pieces in these bangle – although I think I personally would have showcased them with the delicate pinks and whites, rather than the bright blues. Nevertheless, the safety chain and the accompanying LE bangle are two of the highlights of the Winter 2015 collection for me!
The new opalescent Eternity spacers look gorgeous!
Next up, we have a closer look at the cheerful festive pieces! Pictured here are the new synthetic sapphire Geometric Facets – unfortunately it does look like their true colour is close to the stock image, making them more of a deep pink than the cherry red some were hoping for.
From the stock image, I was a little worried that the Holly murano looked rather orange-y in tone – however it’s reassuring to see from the live shots that it will be a delightful cherry red!
This shot offers another look at the Holly murano – it does look rather gorgeous in combination with the new Prancing Reindeer dangle.
Speaking of the new reindeer dangle, doesn’t its red enamel sparkle in this shot?
Another of my favourite pieces from the initial Winter 2015 previews was the adorable Christmas Puppy; his little red enamel hat is so cute! He looks a nice size as well.
Next, we have a few shots of the new delicate ribbons and pastels that are coming out for Winter 2015. Here, you can see the new Abundance of Love charm, with its sparkling white enamel. It looks beautiful with last year’s Everlasting Grace pendant! Also pictured to the right is the Forest Fairy, one of my favourites from the Fall 2015 collection – my only concern is that her wings and head look rather pointy there…
The new pavé bracelet goes nicely with the new ribbons and present charms. The Heart & Bow dangle actually looks rather nice here, although I’m still not sure it’s something I would buy!
Finally again, we have some beautiful shots of the accompanying Winter 2015 jewellery:
It’s wonderful to finally have some live shots, and such good ones at that! I’m actually seeing more must-haves for me in the Winter 2015 collection; I love the Christmas Puppy and Christmas Holly murano, while the ribbon and bow pieces are beautiful – especially the delicate pearl Delicate Sentiments ring! I have decided that I’m just going to bite the bullet and start a dedicated Christmas bracelet this season – it’s likely that a number of these new festive pieces will be going on it. ;)
Having said that, I do have my favourite pieces from the Autumn collection; the Dragonfly Meadow is beautiful, and I especially love its additional floral detailing as revealed here. The Forest Fairy looks cute but I do have concerns about how comfy she will be to wear haha.
Which pieces are standing out most for you? Are any going on your wish list?
