Breaking news on the Pandora bangle

pandora-bangleA lot of rumors have been floating around regarding the Pandora bangle and today I’m so excited to share the picture of the bangle and information regarding the release and its functionality.  As you can see, the bangle is circular with a round barrel clasp very similar to the Loving PANDORA clip released last spring.  It will come in 3 sizes – 6.7″, 7.5″, and 8.3″ and does not have any threads in the middle of the bracelet like the leathers.  Therefore, to keep the charms from moving around the Pandora silicone U-stoppers can be used with clips to help them stay in place.  The bangle can be filled completely just like a regular bracelet, or just a few pieces depending on your preference.  To place the bracelet on your wrist, open the clasp and twist one end to either side, the silver is very flexible and metal memory guarantees that it will spring back into place.  The price will the same as all silver bracelets at $65USD.

pandora-bangle2The Pandora bangle will be released around late March in North America in Concept Stores exclusively; so most likely it will not be available for the bracelet promo in March.  All stores will receive it by June along with the summer collection.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any information on the release date for other countries but it should follow roughly the same release schedule (Concept stores first then other stores in June).

This is the biggest change in Pandora bracelets since they came out with its revolutionary barrel clasp and I am very excited for its arrival!  I definitely have a couple bracelets I’m planning on switching to the bangle.  What do you think about this brand new product?

    Mmm, I was told the bracelets can only hold seven charms, like the leather ones. Too many charms, or the weight of too many, can interfere with the metal memory.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I have it on very good authority that the bangle can be filled completely. It doesn’t make sense to me to treat it like leather which is a porous, stretchable material.

    • DoraLee

      The charms can hold as many as you like, much like the traditional bracelet. I’m a Pandora employee

  • Velma

    This must be the one in the September promotion GWP w/$100.00 purchase you can get a free barrel clap OR bangle bracelet. I must get me one (or two) in September.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I definitely can’t wait that long! I’ll be getting at least one when it comes out next month ;).

  • Maritza

    I Love it!!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Me too! :)

  • Joyce

    Very interesting…but I’m disappointed that it will only be available in three sizes…not my size.:(

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      :(. They may come out with more sizes later when they’ve proven the concept.

  • Velma

    Do you know what the new leather bracelets are going to look like? I know they will be out before the July promotion.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      For summer in June. :)

    • Marisela

      From what I have seen, they will be triple, with smooth leather. And they will have the same barrel clasp as the bangle (the one that looks like the Loving Pandora clip as stated by Leann). I saw them in black, purple, teal, red and brown. I really want one of those! Of course, the bangle excites me as well! I have a Chamilia one, since I like the bangle concept, and at the time there was no Pandora equivalent. You could say I had an affair with Chamilia! However, that one comes with stoppers, so that the charms won’t move.

      • Nichole

        I’ve been hoping that Pandora would release a triple brown leather bracelet. I’m excited!

  • Jennifer T.

    I can’t wait!! I seriously have to save my money for the bangle and the new leather bracelets!!!! I am really looking forward to all the new charms as well :)

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Me too! :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001652460089 Carin Farrell

    I am SOOO excited for the bangle bracelet to be coming out!! Can’t wait!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I am counting the days :).

      • Sandy

        Is there ANY chance the bangle bracelet will be available for Mother’s Day???

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Hi Sandy, the bangle is already out in most Concept stores: Pandora bangle introduction and review.

  • Chantel

    I am sooo excited!!! Even though this means that I will have to buy the Loving Pandora clips too…

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Well, you don’t have to… ;)

  • Jen Tab

    This is exciting! I was at the Concept store today and just asked if they had any info they could share about the new bangle. The saleswoman says, “how does everyone know about this already?” She said they didn’t know the exact date of the release and was kind of stingy with any info. I said, “we’ll, I read about it online!” Leann, by reading your blog, I feel like sometimes I know more about Pandora than some of the people that work there!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Haha, I think sometimes they play dumb because they can’t say anything. I am eagerly awaiting this to come out!

      • Jen Tab

        I’ll give them a break on promos that they can’t talk about yet…not so much on knowledge of charms! LOL!

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        True enuff! That’s inexcusable :/.

  • Carrie

    So I’m guessing that’s what the catalogs meant by “limited distribution”? It’s more of a rolling release? But anyways, I’m really intrigued by the bangle. I think it will be great for more simplistic, clean-lined bracelet designs. I’ll definitely take a look at it when it comes out & see how it compares to a leather bracelet for design purposes.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Yes, exactly :). I love that there aren’t threads in the middle, it’ll make the charms jingle a lot!

      • Angela

        Lwann,
        LOL..Same thought I had about the jingles, plus imagine of how it will sound if wearing multiples… My Husband will say what are you folks aiming for a walking symphony.. jingle, jingle ,jingle.

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Hahaha, exactly. At least he’ll always hear you coming!

  • Angela

    Leann,
    OOOPS me bad miss spelled name with typo.So sorry.

  • Sospiria

    i like it!! :) it looks easier to clean :P

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I think you’re right :). No separation between the links to make it difficult.

  • Ashley

    Oh yes I’ve been waiting patiently for Pandora to come out with there own bangle to put Pandora charms on! Finally!! :) I already bought the two Loving Pandora clips awhile back when they had come out now I know just what to do with them! :)
    And March is my birthday month so I have plenty I’m asking for (duh! More Pandora gifts please!!) hahahaha

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Perfect! What else is on your list? :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

    I really want this bangle. When its coming out Leann? I’m so excited.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Dates of release are listed above.

  • jim moscato

    How do you measure for the bangle sizes ?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      It should be the same as the regular silver bracelet. The fit may be different since the bangle is round.

  • Steph

    OMG! I can’t wait. This bracelet along with the new spring collection is going to make me sooo poor! I can’t wait to go to Pandora in March. Thanks for posting this!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I know what you mean, Steph! Me tooooo. XD

  • Lizzy

    Hi. I am a huge fan Leann. Thanks for posting promos. I found out about free bracelet and charms coming out before the stores knew, and thanks to a poster on purse forum Pandora thread, I saw new bracelet and new fish and teal muranos, which I want so much for my Nautical, tropical/ pond theme bracelet, lol.
    What size would I be in this bangle? I’m between 7.1 and 7.5 in SS barrel bracelets, but I go down to 7.1 for tight fit to start, before stretch. I have a 15.9 cm wrist/ 6.3”. I don’t like bangles usually, as I don’t like how hard they are on wrist bones, and loose fit. What do you think? Thanks

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hi Lizzy! I would recommend the 7.5″ since the 6.7″ sounds like it would be too small with charms on. I’d wait to see what it feels like in the store! :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

    Hope this isn’t a silly question. Are concept stores small boutique stores that are authorized retailers of Pandora?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      The Concept stores sell Pandora exclusively, check out the Pandora FAQs for a breakdown of the different levels.

  • Paulina

    Hey! I’m a huge fan of Your blog. Keep up the great work!
    While I think, that new leather bracelets are great, one thing bugs me – are they planning to switch clasps in their every product in the near future? I mean, replace the barrel clasp in the silver bracelets with Loving Pandora clip? I wouldn’t be very happy with that…

    Have a nice day! :)

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      No plans to do that. It’s just a new style for the bangle and new leathers.

  • MJ

    I want one, lol. I am thrilled they have a 6.7, and I love the clasp. Thanks so much for the info; it is really exciting news!

  • Leah

    Leann, ask your local store if you can sub the bangle for the regular silver in the march bracelet promo, i believe we can substitute for the bangle, you just have to ask :)

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      My store confirmed that they will not have the bangle in time for the promo :(.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=524152852 Melinda Foofie Deyhle

    I prefer the Trollbeads bangle, whic is a cuff shape, but I love the price point on their bangle! I wish Trollbeads had made theirs more affordable.

  • margie

    HI Leann, always loving your blog ! I truly love bangles, before Pandora, I have a couple of Carolee sterling silver bangles, I think I’ll wear my bangle with no charms with my favorite pandora……loving that idea! ;)

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hi Margie, thank you! I am so incredibly excited about the bangle, I think I will get it on during my lunch break as soon as it comes out! ;)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001098994151 Lorraine Emma Pearce

    This is SO on my want list when it comes to the Uk! I LOVE it!! I have always loved bangles and to have a Pandora One with my oh so loved charms WILL BE FAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!! =0)

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      It’s going to be fantastic, I’m practically vibrating with anticipation for the bangle! I know I’m going to run out to get it when it finally arrives ;).

  • Margo

    Is this bangle going to be made in yellow gold? I really want to get it in gold. Pandora needs more bracelet options in gold!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Unfortunately no plans to make it in yellow gold at the moment. I’m sure if it sells well they’ll consider it for the future :).

  • Xiomara

    I was able to try this bangle on March 29 at my local store. I tried the 6.5. The salesperson loaded it with all my charms, but fully loaded the bracelet was cumbersome to put on and take off. I did like this bangle very much, but I think it’s more suitable for three or four charms, which actually was a prettier look than fully loaded.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      That’s interesting! Thanks for the info, Xiomara. I was really hoping for a more functional bracelet, I have plans for it! I guess we’ll see… :/ I can’t wait until my store gets it though!

  • kim

    I am really looking forward to trying on the new bangle! I have already planned on using the Pandora silicone U-stoppers. But, I am curious, will the bangle get all scratched up if the beads are floating around?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hmm, good question Kim. I think it’ll be more durable than that, but I haven’t really seen ones fulled out.

      • Liz

        They are very easily scratched! I put 1 bead on for about 2 minutes, inspected the bangle, and it is scratched up.. Very disappointed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

    I was able to see the bangle bracelet in person and will be getting one. It is beautiful without the beads and seems to be very durable and easy to put on. I’m not sure if I will fill the entire bracelet. I would like to put a dangle charm, a few muranos and clips on it.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I got one last night and will definitely not be filling it up. Not at all comfortable with more than a couple charms on. :(

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

        Really. I just got mine but haven’t put any beads on it yet. How do you like it?

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Full review coming tomorrow! :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000511141741 Sonya Lapierre

    I purchased a yesterday and I love it!!! I live in NH and drove over 360 miles to get it !!! So worth the drive and I plan on getting another one for Mother’s Day next month!!! Super light and beautiful!!!

  • LuIsa

    I bought mine today, definitely worth the wait!!!

    I have put 10 charms on so far since i have decided to keep it to summer charms.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Awesome! Glad you like it :). What charms did you pick?

  • Tracie Rickards

    Cant wait until June for the bangle. Its driving me crazy!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hehe, I know exactly what you mean!! I couldn’t wait either – the anticipation was the worst part.

  • Jesi Gallardo

    Is free bangle bracelet really coming this September? Is the bangle included in the promo?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Yes, your choice of silver bracelets :).

  • Sheryl

    I got the bangle and got three charms on it. I am curious as to why the bangle does not show up in the pandora.net website.

  • Leann

    Oh that’s weird. Their tech is so far behind, they never have it updated in time. :/

  • janice

    Is it advisable to put a dangling charm in the bangle bracelet?

    • Leann

      Yes, that’s fine. It looks really cute actually :).
