The Pandora Spring 2017 Collection debuts this Thursday, March 16th, so I know this is a late preview but I’m excited to share HQ pictures of all the designs coming out soon.  The spring collection is one of the biggest releases of the year, and this one features more jewelry than usual.  There’s the typical floral and love motifs, so not many surprises in this collection. Pink and purple has been the

Undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated lines from Pandora is their Disney Collection and nothing is more exciting than having a look at the upcoming Disney Parks Exclusive charms!  For Spring 2017, most of these designs should be coming out around the same time as the regular release around March 16th, but it’s not a hard date. I love all things Mickey and Minnie, so I adore the new enamel Ear

Since the UK celebrates Mother’s Day months earlier than most other countries, Trollbeads typically releases their Mother’s Day Collection worldwide early as well.  This year’s offering includes two beads, the limited edition Roses for Mom and Opposites Attract.  The photos are courtesy of Trollbeads, please do not reproduce without crediting.

Pandora typically debuts a small set from the Mother’s Day collection in the UK prior to the worldwide launch since Mothering Sunday is celebrated much earlier in the year than most countries.  This year has the same schedule and we see just the family/mother themed charms available early.  The rest of the collection will be released on April 13th for all markets so not much longer to wait now. I love that Pandora

Pandora is previewing their new Club Charm before the release this year!  It will be launched with the rest of the Spring 2017 Collection on March 16th.

I haven’t been very impressed with the Club Charms since I’m not a fan of heart motifs
