It only seems like two minutes since the Spring launch last month, but today sees the day of the Pandora Mother’s Day 2018 collections worldwide! There’s a surprising amount launching today, with new pieces for the Rose, Essence, Shine, and Disney lines. The collection celebrates life milestones and new arrivals, with some new sparkling bow pieces for a decorative hook.
In the UK, we already had our Mother’s Day, so this launch is being marked as Spring Drop 2. Read on for live shots and further updates! :)
Pandora Mother’s Day 2018 collection release
The Mother’s Day collection offers sugar and spice and all things nice, with pastel colours, homey motherly beads, and cake slices. To see all full overview of the collection, please do have a gander through the Mother’s Day tag. You can see the US gift sets at this link, also.
As usual, stores have been uploading live shots to social media and I’ve collated some of the best here. My favourites are the pretty balloon animal enamel beads, and the Plentiful Hearts murano has also snuck up on me – I actually love its softer colour from the live shots and am now tempted by it!
The Brilliant Bow is a huge statement piece, and I haven’t really seen any stores attempt to style it any other way than on its own on a bangle (as per Pandora’s own campaign styling).
The US exclusive Mama Bear dangle is also out:
The Lotus dangle has attracted attention from collectors with its pretty design and regional exclusivity – it has a double lotus design, with a silver outline laid over a soft pink enamel plate. The North American store launch booklet had this down as being a Canadian exclusive, but I think that it simply meant that it would not be coming out in the US. So far, it is confirmed as being available in Canada, Australia/New Zealand, and Asia.
I have mine on order and can’t wait for it to arrive! :)
Finally, the limited edition Pattern of Love bangle. This appears to have been released out right in Asia (you can see it online in Singapore and China, for example) but will be offered as a GWP in other countries. I’ve confirmed that it will be available in Canada, the UK, and at least some European countries. I imagine it will come to most, if not all, regions.
Pandora Shine Mother’s Day 2018 release
Pandora have been strict about previewing both Pandora Shine and Disney in advance, and so I’m listing these new Shine Mother’s Day pieces today.
There aren’t many additional beads, and they’ve been in the catalogue for a month or so, so no real surprises here.
My favourites of this selection are the very cute Theodore Bear designs, available in both charm form and as a pendant:
In Asia, this little charm comes with a special Hug Me charm box, much like the Bella Bot from Spring:
Pandora Disney Spring 2018 release
The Pandora Disney Spring release is now out, offering new Mickey/Minnie designs in a variety of charms, clips and safety chains. Their aesthetic is quite different from previous abstract Mickey Mouse designs, instead offering full-bodied characters with kitschy vintage detail.
I have dedicated a post proper to this, however, seeing as I wasn’t able to preview the collection properly!
Pandora Rose and Pandora Essence Mother’s Day 2018 releases
Additionally there are new releases for the Pandora Rose and Essence ranges today. You can see the full collections for Rose and Essence at the following links:-
I love the look of the Hearts Filigree openwork charm – so pretty! The Harmonious Hearts necklace, as I suspected from the high RRP, is very large.
I’ve not spotted any live shots of the new Essence range yet, but you can see the charms coming out today in my original post. It really doesn’t receive much attention as a collection these days.
Pandora Signature Styles promo begins for the US
Finally, a reminder that the Signature Styles promotion for the US begins today – more details in my previous post!
It looks like the new Signature pieces will be becoming part of the regular collection once the promotion is over. The US has also received the Pandora Shine versions of these pieces, although they are not part of the promo.
My must-haves, as I’ve said before, are the Serene Lotus dangle and the Bright Hearts safety chain, but there’s plenty more I’d like. I try to be a tad more conservative about hoovering up pieces I like without having a place for them to go these days – and I already bought so much of the Spring collection! Having said that, I’m also tempted by the Plentiful Hearts murano. I just adore that soft pink murano in person.
I have the day off today and so I am planning on having a little meander into town later on to see the collection, and perhaps to buy the safety chain.
Are you buying anything from this release?
