Although the Pandora Winter 2013 Collection is already partly available in North America, today is the official release day which begins the holiday marketing campaign and the rest of charms in this set (the ones in the 12 days of Christmas promotion excluding the Black Friday Charm) are available for sale individually. The beads that have been held back are: Winter Mittens, Candy Cane, Reindeer, Tree of Lights, Perfect Gift, Dashing through the Snow, Snow Globe, Silver Bells, St. Nick, Winter Wisp, and Winter Wonderland clip.
However, the 12 Days of Christmas will not be out until November 29th when the Black Friday Charm debuts, if you want to buy these charms as a bundle for the value price (North America ONLY, $500USD/$550CAD). The promotion includes the 11 charms pictured below, an extra Winter Wonderland clip, the Black Friday Charm, and a free jewelry box design center GWP. Thanks to Yasemin Biktim, we’ve got a picture of the Designer Center! It’s not very big and wouldn’t be able to hold a large collection, but it looks great to use as a play tray of sorts. I’ve preordered my 12 Days of Christmas Bundle and I can’t wait to get it!
It’s also the premiere of this collection globally and for many countries today’s the first opportunity to buy any of these charms in stores. In other markets, this release is known as the Pandora Christmas 2013 Collection, and that is certainly apt as it’s predominantly Christmas themed. The Santa ornament GWP will be offered in many areas, so it might be more judicious to hold off purchasing until then if you like that design.

It’s the start of an exciting week as the Pandora Essence line is also launching, and I’m anxiously waiting for the end of the work day to get my first Essence bracelet and charms! More on that in just a bit ;). Are you excited for the Christmas/winter charms? Does the 12 Days of Christmas promo tempt you? What do you think of the Design Center?
