A couple months ago, I posted a catalog of charms rumored to be part of the second retirement from Pandora this year. Well, today we’ve got the official list of what is going to be leaving the collection, and it’s worst than I thought! The number of charms being culled is quite extensive, and even though I was expecting a long list I’m still shocked at how many pieces are being discontinued.
Fans usually have about a month or two before stores send these pieces back to Pandora, but that will depend on the individual retailer. Update – stores are sending these back rather soon because of the way Pandora is crediting them back.
I’m heartbroken over the silver animal beads that are being retired. Not only are they the more affordable charms from the brand, but they’re so cute too :(. The amount of clips and Muranos being cut is also devastating to me, as there aren’t that many of them to begin with. I’m curious to see what’s left of the glass collection after this round of retirement. A surprisingly number of dangles are on the list, including just three of the national landmarks and newer zodiac animals.
Most stores have been sending back the retired jewelry rather aggressively as they get credit towards future purchases, so if you want anything on this list for sure it’s better to get it sooner than later. What’s your must have from these beads?
