Pandora LE 2014 Survivor Charm

pandora-canadian-breast-cancer-dangleThis week Pandora released a new limited edition charm in anticipation of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this year.  It is called the 2014 Survivor Charm and will only be available in Canadian stores as it benefits the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  This charm will be sold through October with 20% of all retail sales donated to the CBCF.  It’s a beautifully simple charm with the cancer awareness ribbon and “2014″ engraved on the back of the Unforgettable Moments pendant and is priced at $65CAD.

I did find the dangle on Charm Junction, a Canadian authorized retail store, but the shipping to the US is quite high.  Otherwise, it can be purchased in stores across Canada you’ll have to find a Canadian friend if you like this charm.  What do you think of this design?

    I’m gonna have to over pay for this! ;)

    • Leann

      Yikes, enjoy it though!

  • Lori

    I think I will go look for this tomorrow – I don’t know whether it will just be at Concept stores or all Canadian Pandora stores, but I guess the latter.

    • Aysha

      It should be at all Canadian Pandora retailers :)

      • Leann

        Awesome, thanks Aysha!

      • Lori

        Yes it is, but seemingly in quite limited quantities, as where I got mine only had 4, but it wasn’t a Concept store, which probably have more. And the ribbon isn’t as black as the stock picture, it is more like the grey oxidized effect they do for most of these types of charms.

      • Leann

        Thanks for sharing! I hope it would be tasteful :).

    I’m getting bored with this dangle, they use it for everything now. The landmarks, the world cup in Brasil etc.

    • Leann

      I know :/. They need something new, I have a bunch of these discs already!

  • Kaye Knkaye

    I like that it is silver..not the usual pink for a change.

    It being limited just does not make to me. One can just buy the plain Pandora dangle and have it engraved anytime! Not very original.

    • Leann

      It’s nice that it’s not colored so you can use it for a lot of different causes. I don’t like that it’s just the same dangle either :/.

  • Camille Johannsen

    If it’s as black as it looks, I don’t think that is a good omen do you? It should have been outlined not totally filled in yikes! In the Jewish religion black ribbons are given to mourners at the funeral!

    Not well thought out out!

    • Leann

      Yikes! I guess they could have added pink enamel to it.

      • Cilia

        I was in two minds about getting this but you made up my mind for me Camille, the thought of this black mourning ribbon puts me off esp since it is a SURVIVOR charm!

  • Juli

    I just ordered this, with the $25.00 FedEx price it came to $90.00 CA ($84.51 USD). I’d admit I’ve seen prettier charms, but I’m a survivor and wanted it for my Breast Cancer bracelet.

    • Leann

      Pricey, but what a meaningful piece for you!

      • Juli

        You’re right about pricey, but tracking says I should have it today by 4:00 pm. I’m surprised!

      • Leann

        Very nice! How do you like it?

  • Sandra

    I do not like this charm. It is not “special” enough to represent a cause that is so dear to and emotional for many women. The dangle looks like all of the other several dangles Pandora has released this year. I’ve been waiting for this specific charm all year. I won’t be buying it even though it appears to be LE :( Sorry, Pandora, huge let down … Maybe next year.

    • Leann

      I know what you mean :/. It’s just so easy for them to use it since it’s engraveable.

  • Carol

    If anyone wants help in getting this, I can help out :D

    • Leann

      Thanks, Carol :).

  • Mandy

    Yuck, I was diagnosed with BC this year and was looking forward to a pretty BC charm but this one is disappointing. As others have mentioned, it’s used for so many of the other landmarks, baseball, etc. plus being black not only is it ugly but given out at Jewish funerals, it’s very tasteless of Pandora!!! Also, I think they are doing many on the cheap with using the same dangle charm and just changing the “picture” on it.

    • Leann

      It is not the best charm for sure :(. I’m ready to see a new design as well!

  • Andrea

    I just ordered it as well for $25.00 fedex and it says it has been delivered. I also like that a portion goes to the cause. Has anyone found the autumn charms in stores yet?

    • Leann

      Wow, that’s fast! I think Puerto Rico has them, and some stores on the east coast.

  • NAA3

    Is there any word on what the Australian charm for BC will look like?

    • Leann

      It’s not been confirmed that Australia is doing a breast cancer piece this year.

      • NAA3

        One of the Pandora associates said there is one on one of my post earlier this week but said she couldn’t say much else

      • Leann

        Oh interesting! I will keep my ear to the ground then :).
