I heard a few rumors yesterday regarding the charms coming out for the fall/winter season, and while I was sleeping, photos for the new collection were leaked all over the Facebook groups! It is indeed going to be a “blingy” holiday season. Unsurprisingly, a lot of new charms are winter themed with the top color palettes being black, brown, blue, and red. To be honest, all the crystals on the charms (especially the hearts and the round balls) remind me of Chamilia. Not my taste at all… :/.
Some top charms that have been requested are: the iceskate, caduceus symbol for all the medical professionals, and the crown in silver. The silver crown, unlike what I had hypothesized before, does not have any CZs . I guess it would be too easy to confuse with the white gold crown with diamonds in that case. The CZs are replaced with silver rivets, which is still stunning. The charms I’m super excited for are the oriental lucky cat, two-tone jewelry box, and the love birds. Also, looks like Pandora is coming out with “crystal” Muranos that are faceted and remind me of the Trollbeads “Prism” collection. There’s only a picture of the black bead so far, but I’m thinking that there will be a whole collection of them.
We see that the “21″ has been reworked as a non-dangle, I’ve also heard the “18″ will be done like this as well, and possibly coming out with a “16″. Not sure what the artichoke is all about, lol, but the triple-ball spacer is not a new charm, it is already out. Of the charms revealed, again, there isn’t a lot of gold in this collection – only 3 pieces which goes along with Pandora’s goal of making their jewelry more affordable. These crystals are all set in the Pavé style, which as I’ve said, isn’t really my thing, although I am intrigued by the Pavé set stars and the Pavé set heart. I think that the apple got redesigned as well so that it doesn’t have the worm; I wonder why they did that? I think I’ll have to switch my apples when this one comes out!
I can’t believe how many pictures got leaked! I hope this isn’t the whole collection though; there’s definitely a ship that’s coming out that hasn’t been revealed. These pictures are obviously stock photos, I wonder if Pandora “accidentally” released them… .
