We’re just two weeks away from the exciting Black Friday charm reveal, and a wonderful Pandora fairy dropped this little gem in my inbox (photos below are also courtesy of the Pandora fairy)! Originally, when I posted this article I didn’t have a photo of the actual charm, so I created my own mockup. But I always prefer showing an actual picture. 🙂 Like all early accounts of the charm, it is a silver present with red enamel ribbon. There is no year engraved on the bead and a Pandora “Ô” tag from the top. The price is $55 and the charm comes in this cute little box (see inset). As many of you have astutely noticed, it looks exactly like the “All Wrapped Up in PANDORA” charm that’s coming out next Spring except with bright red enamel (and the tag?).
The bracelet set is $200 and includes a bracelet, 2 twinkle twinkle clips, and the 2012 black Friday charm (BFC). The set comes with a larger box, that was originally featured in the Iconic bracelet promo email.
My first reaction to the BFC was quite underwhelming; this exclusive limited edition North American charm doesn’t seem very special to me. Although, I suppose the same can be said of last year’s BFC which was just a different color of an existing bead. I’ll be getting this set anyways though, just label something limited edition/country-exclusive and I’ll shell out the cash every time :P.
