Today is an exciting day on the Pandora calendar as the Autumn 2017 collection launches worldwide! With lots of geometric designs and metallic colours, this collection is rather a sparkling and stylised affair. There are new piece for the Pandora Rose and Essence lines as well as Moments, too – and even a Pandora Rose/Essence crossover. :)
While we might not have many character beads to collect in this launch, there are a few really interesting new bracelets, and some beautiful decorative beads – including a stunning-looking new murano glass charm. <3
For previews and live shots, have a look through the Pandora Autumn 2017 tag. Otherwise, read on for my usual round-up of launch-day images from various retailers! <3
Pandora Autumn 2017 Collections debut
A lot of retailer images have focused on the new bracelets – the new all-Rose smooth bracelet does look particularly stunning! I saw it in store myself last week, and it looked great with a mix of silver and Rose-accented charms.
In terms of the charms itself, the decorative and geometric beads look nice – particularly the new teardrop-shaped charm – but aren’t really different enough to tempt me. My favourite is the little enamel Panda . There’s no sign of the two-tone heart & lock charm that cropped up in one of my previous previews yet, however – perhaps a country exclusive, a Winter release, or pulled entirely. I will keep an eye out for news!
Also, if anyone comes across a live image of the new Shimmering Stripe murano, I’d love to see it!
The new UK-exclusive Pudsey Bear charm for 2017 appears to be out today, as well.
I will be going to see the new beads over the weekend – my favourites remain unchanged from when I originally previewed the collection, I think, but it’s hard to know what my first purchases should be! I’d like the Teardrops openwork, the Shimmering Stripe murano glass beads, and the new Embossed Hearts safety chain with the CZ. The Blooming Heart was also very pretty. This collection has some very expensive charms and bracelets in it, but it was also nice to see a good smattering of lower-priced charms, too – the new Glitter balls, the openworks, etc.
I saw the new Mesh bracelet in store last weekend, but I actually wasn’t convinced, after having waited so long for it! I think the design must have changed in some way, as it was so much shinier than it originally looked in the stock image and campaign images, and much more like a bangle than a bracelet, I thought. So I am weighing it up still!
The other jewellery pieces I really like are the Fairytale Tiara collection – so pretty! <3 And the puzzle rings are a really cute concept, too.
