It’s the first of October and a variety of promotions are being run this month worldwide from Pandora, some are focused on breast cancer awareness and others for the holidays. October is international breast cancer awareness month and this cause is close to Pandora’s heart. As such, Australia is offering for the entire month, a limited edition pink triple strand smooth leather bracelet and the Key to My Heart charm for $99AUD with 30% of the proceeds going to the Australian Breast Cancer Foundation. The color for this bracelet actually had to be changed due to manufacturing problems, so now it’s a matte flesh-toned pink not the metallic bright pink depicted in the catalog. I just got mine yesterday thanks to an Australian friend (thanks, Phyll!) and I love it! I’m not a huge fan of pink and this is a nice delicate shade for me.
The UK is following suit with a breast cancer awareness promotion – for £59GBP receive a single braided pink leather bracelet and the Pink Fizzle (aka Effervescent) Murano. The Pink Fizzle Murano appeared briefly on the UK Pandora site when the autumn collection first launched but quickly disappeared. The inclusion of this bead for the promotion makes more sense as to why it was held back from the original release. It is unknown whether this will be a limited appearance for the charm or if it will be released separately at a later time. 15% of the sales goes towards the Breakthrough Breast Cancer organization. This promotion was supposed to start today but was unexpectedly delayed, so stay tuned for an update on that. It will be offered in stores and online retailers such as John Greed Jewellery.
France is also participating in the fight against breast cancer this month with a 15% donation of the sales from select pink ribbon products going to the Le Cancer du Sein, Parlons-en! (Breast Cancer, Let’s Talk!) foundation. The items are the Pink Ribbon openwork charm, Pink Ribbon Murano, and Pink Ribbon dangle for €29-49EUR, refer to the top of the photo (right inset) for reference on the specific charms.
In the US and Canada, Pandora has a deal on another bracelet gift set called Pick a Pavé. Choose a bracelet or bangle and a pavé charm of up to $65USD, along with two You’re a Star clips and bracelet gift box for $200USD with a cost savings of $40 and the box GWP. The gift box is the same one as the Black Friday Charm 2013 bracelet set. If you’ve been waiting to start your Pandora collection or hoping to give it for Christmas this is a great promotion! This is a long promotion starting on October 3rd through December 25th, so you’ve got plenty of time to decide.
