I can’t believe how quickly the year has passed and now we look forward to the next release from Pandora which is the Valentine’s Day 2014 Collection. The official launch date will be January 13th, but stores should be getting them around the beginning of the year. Unsurprisingly, the theme for this set is pink, hearts, and more hearts; this motif is not my favorite but there are definitely ones I like, especially the Interlocking Love and Gift From the Heart. Amongst the love theme is the Figure Skater which is great for the Winter Olympics coming up in February. The charms always look better in person and I’m sure this will be the case again. These images are higher quality than the ones before, so will hopefully give a better representation of the beads.
I’m on the fence with Love Note – it looks like a cute dangle and I love that it is articulated, but it seems too youthful for me. I’ve had plenty of questions regarding what is engraved on this piece and it says, “Happy Valentine’s Day” on the front of the card and inside is “To My Dear Valentine…Will You Be Mine”. Gift From the Heart also opens and closes with a gold ring inside. You & Me resembles the sweetheart candies popular during this holiday, features a CZ on the front, and the heart splits open to reveal pink enamel. The price for Cupid is unconfirmed, but with a touch of rose gold I would expect a higher price point.
This is probably my least favorite collection in a long time because I’m not a huge fan of hearts or pink, and there are definitely plenty of those for this release. But having said that, I’ll still probably end up with a number of these charms, lol. I’m getting slightly more excited for this collection because I really adore articulating charms and smaller dangles, so this collection is slowly winning me over. Has anything jumped onto your wish list?
