Pandora has been light on limited editions in 2016 so far, but today they are launching their latest Club Charm!  I offered a sneak peek of this design early in the year and it’s exciting that it’s finally here.  This one is a heart made of smaller hearts.  The year is engraved on one side and a small diamond on the other.  The photos are courtesy of Patty Ng, please do not

After the big spring releases, it gets pretty quiet until the fall.  To break up the monotony, today Trollbeads is launching their highly anticipated Spacer Collection!  Decorative spacers been long awaited and much requested, so I have been as eager as anyone for this collection to debut.  There are 7 designs in this set: Beehive, Sunbeam, Sweet Berries, Dot’n’Dot, Connected Love, Heart, and Bumble Bee.  The photos are courtesy of

Ohm Beads Ambulance Release

The other surprise Ohm Beads charm launching today is called Ambulance.  It is also not limited so will be part of the regular collection.  This single release is a very detailed design of an ambulance.  Great for paramedics or medical professionals, it’s a niche piece for a target group of fans. There was no preview for this bead either, so another nice revelation by the brand.  I love the detailed back which shows an enlarged

Ohm Beads Animal Aptitude Collection

X Jewellery Retirement

Today brings news of X Jewellery’s first retirement and a price reduction! This is an official list and the designs have already been discontinued.  Retailers will sell through their remaining stocks and then they will be gone for good.  Presumably, the retiring links are the ones that do not sell well, so for some it’s not a surprise. All the pendants and Asian cords are getting the axe; I did
