Wow, we are not even to the holidays and photos have already come out for the Pandora Spring/Summer 2013 collection! These pictures were leaked from the company’s own look book, and the charms are absolutely to die for. There are 5 main themes for this collection: Cheery Blossoms, Romance, Fairy Tale, Love and Hearts, and Artistic. The spring release will be March 11th and the summer release will be April 15th; although with Pandora’s track record, these will probably be just estimates.
For easy digestion, I’ve put the new charms into groupings by theme. Feel free to share these, but please don’t reproduce without credit . There are a few charms that feel out of place within these themes so I’ve made up my own terms for them.
Someone at Pandora must love elephants because this is the third incarnation we’ve seen for the animal, and cats too as this is the fourth version of this pet. I am positively in love with the Scottie dog; as I have a Westie, I will be using this charm as a substitute! While I’m not a fan of pink, pair it with the cherry blossoms motif and I’m sold. Spring is one of my favorite times of year, especially when the cherry trees were blooming across campus. I have fond memories of walking to class through the quad and being showered by petals. I love it! I hope Pandora not only has the pink cherry blossom Murano, but a whole line with different colors as well coming out next season. I’m also delighted to see so many fairy tale, family, and hobby charms (hairdressers are going to be so happy!).
What I’m surprised about is Pandora releasing a charm very similar to the Family Ties – Family Love looks strikingly alike, except for the added “Family” engraved on it. Read the whole story of the Family Ties fiasco here. Plenty of ladies will be ecstatic since the prices for the original charm have reached meteoric heights.
This is just part of the collection; I will be doing a separate post on new Pandora jewelry (earrings, rings, necklaces, etc.) in the next few days. So, what do we think?!
