Pandora Winter 2013 Jewelry Preview

pandora-autumn-2013-cover5Now that the autumn collection has arrived in stores, we can turn our attention to the upcoming Pandora Winter 2013 Collection! We’ve already had a look at the charms included in this release and today’s preview discusses the other jewelry pieces coming for this season. The official release date is November 4th, but I’ve been told that this collection should be available immediately after the September bracelet event, so around the last week of September.

I’m most excited about the new pavé lovepod-style rings, including the gorgeous large pod pavé rings, coming in purple and black; Pandora is also bringing the 8-pod pavé rings to silver. I’ve lusted longingly for the lovepod rings but with the hefty price tag associated with gold, it was just a pipedream until now. The black pavé rings and earrings are actually black crystal, not cubic zirconia, because there is a worldwide shortage of black CZ and to keep costs down, Pandora decided to substitute crystals instead of CZ.

The other prevailing theme extends the pavé design to feature stars and hearts, matching the charms and dangles that came out earlier this year. These are available in earring studs and rings. I can see the appeal, but they’re a bit too simple for my tastes. The snowflake pendant is also gorgeous and a must have for me from the winter set.

Overall, this is certainly a smaller release than the autumn collection, especially since over half the charms will be held back for the “12 Days of Christmas” promotion in November. Still, quite a few pieces I’m itching to get my hands on, any of these catch your eye?

    the faceted purple beauty earring charms and the snowflake pendant are at the top of my list for sure!…I do love the rings but I wash my hands so frequently that I drive myself nuts taking rings off and on so I usually don’t wear them…the new pods are very nice, I’m sure they will be popular!

    • Leann

      I do that too, but I think I’ll make the effort for these rings ;).

  • Kristen

    How much are the rings?!

    • Leann

      I will post all the prices next week! Stay tuned ;).

  • Steph

    I like the snow flake pendant, but the large rings look like a cheap blast from the past from an Argos Catalogue! I wont be buying much from this collection I’m afraid! :(

    • Leann

      I’m sure they’ll look better in person :). The pendant is lovely though!

  • christine

    Can the winter kiss be put on a bracelet or is it out of scale?

  • Kathrine

    I also have been in love with the love pods it’s deffinately time they came in silver;)

    • Leann

      I think so too! I’d love to see them in more colors though, especially clear ;).

      • Kathrine

        Deffinately maybe if they prove to be popular … On an unrelated topic I was wondering how many different pandora bracelets have you completed and do they all have themes I’ve been watching some of your videos and love hearing about your choices

      • Leann

        Hehe, I have a lot. They usually have themes, if only for the color but most of them have an additional theme too. ^^

    Thanks for the pix!

    I saw another picture of the faceted earring drops but it was on such a highly colored background that it was impossible to get a sense of the actual color of the stones. From your pic I can see that they’re lovely.

    Do you know the price?

    • Leann

      I can’t think of it off the top of the head, but it’s the same as the faceted beauties (pink and black) that are already out. :) I got a pair of the black and they are sooooo elegant! I love these new colors, they’re perfect for the season :).

  • Denise

    I love the 8-pod rings. And as a Ravens fan here in Baltimore, I think I’ll “need” hiding one of each! 😉

    • Leann

      Oh wow, that’s perfect! They’re going to look so good together :).

  • Jeanne Pursell

    Ooh! I do believe I need both the purple and black 8 pod pave rings! I am thrilled to see them in silver!! Xo Jeanne

    • Leann

      I can’t decide whether to get the large pod or 8-pod, I can’t wait to see them in person! :)

      • Jeanne Pursell

        Neither can I!! They usually have the free bracelet promo on my birthday which makes my choices that much harder! I really do not mind though!

      • Leann

        That’ll be perfect, Jeanne! I bet you have your wish list already ;).

  • Maria

    Can anyone tell me when the Autumn collection hits the UK stores? The blog mentions that they have already arrived is this US only? Thanks in advance Maria

    • Leann

      The UK usually follows the official release date, so I’d say September 2nd. :)

  • Joanne

    I hate the new ‘pod’ range. It devalues the original love pod range. It makes the original love pods seem less high end.
