Pandora Black Friday Charm 2013 Live Shots

pandora-black-friday-2013-live-shot-coverThanksgiving is almost upon us and that means the mad start of the holiday shopping season! Many stores offer special discounts and sales to draw shoppers in and for the past couple of years Pandora has offered a North America exclusive Black Friday Charm to celebrate the biggest selling day of the year. This year’s charm was inadvertently leaked earlier in the summer which I gave a sneak peek of but had to take it down by request of the company so I’m happy to have these live shots of the charm, courtesy of my friend Yasemin Biktim. The 2013 Black Friday Charm is called Let It Snow which is an openwork snowflake with pave CZ, a wonderful complement to the Winter Wisp. It will be released on November 29th for $65USD, along with the 12 Days of Christmas Promotion (pictured below). 

As you can see in the photo, the year is engraved on the side of the charm, as a response to the disappointment some people had because last year’s A Precious Gift didn’t have the date. I love that the design is perfect for the season without being too festive for those that do not celebrate Christmas. The exclusive bead will also come in its own special box which is exactly the same as the one for last year but with “Limited Edition” stamped on the top. Supplies are rumored to be even more restricted this year, so be sure to get it sooner than later. What do you think of this year’s special charm? Will you be getting Let It Snow?

    Do you happen to know when the christmas ornament is arriving in the US stores? I was hoping to buy this and something else and qualify for that ornament, I must have this 😉

  • Cindy Musarra Zultowski

    I have not seen that hinged box before, like a play tray type thing? are they available somewhere?

  • Janet L.

    yes I will!!…I love winter with a passion and absolutely love the name of it plus it’s a sparkly snowflake!…can’t wait!!

    • Leann

      Awesome! I’ve got this preordered so hopefully it’ll get here soon.

      • Claire Greenlow

        How can charms like the BF charm be preordered?

      • Daphne Scroggins Justus

        Claire , if you go to your local retailer they “should” let you pay in advance and pick it up on a designated date.

    I love that the year is imprinted on the side, but i wish it wasnt on a pave. not that i dont LOVE the pave, but the sides of my pave have worn down and you can barely see the 925 ALE PANDORA ingraving. Im just worried about the 2013 wearing off as well.

    • Leann

      Oh good point! The engraving is small because there’s not much space. I hope it doesn’t get rubbed off, it looks pretty deep at least.

  • Claire Greenlow

    Hmm. I think I like it. I’m going t just have to see this in person. If its sparklier than the photos, then I might get it. The price has gone up. $65 US means it’ll be at least $70CAD this year!

    • Leann

      I think it’s sparkly! I hope it is :).

  • Patricia

    Hey Leann! Any chance that it can be bought outside of north America?

    • Leann

      Unfortunately it won’t be sold outside the continent :(. I would recommend finding an American friend?

  • Manda

    I’m not sure how I feel about this year’s Black Friday charm. I’ll definitely have to see it in person. I must say the charm last year was probably my all time favorite.

  • Daphne Scroggins Justus

  • atltravel

    I don’t know how anyone could complain about last years, it is beautiful. I hate dates on anything and I never buy anything with dates on them, but with this being on the side, I will go look and see.

  • Joann Cook

    I pre-ordered this charm today, and was able to take a look at it in person. It’s BEAUTIFUL!! The photos don’t do it justice! The store told me I could pick up the charm on the 26th instead of on Black Friday! In supper excited!!

    Hi Leann,

    Other than the Black Friday 2013 charm, can you tell me what are other exclusive charms for North
    America (and currently available in the stores)? I know someone who may be
    returning home from US next month and am thinking of asking her to get
    me the exclusive ones which are not sold in Malaysia.


    • zuraida zainal abidin

      • Leann

        Happy New Year!

  • Bonnie May

    I have been looking for the perfect charm to commemorate travel with my grandfather. As the majority of our trips were during the winter to NH & Vermont I think this one is perfect!! Just picked up my Essence today, will post pic under a thread there later! 😀

    • Leann

      Aww, that’s perfect! I can’t wait to see it in person either, it’ll be a great addition :).

  • Vanessa Andrade

    I really love this black friday charm, i only wish that is a way of getting it, but i can`t even get it online since i live in Portugal 🙁 Can someone help me?

    • Nan Ferreira

      I live in Florida and I get the Pandora charms for a facebook friend who lives in Spain because yes no one from USA will ship outside of USA. I do not know if this charm is limited to 1 per customer. I must get for my FB friend first but maybe I can help you. contact me at because i am sure i will lose this page ….lol

      • Ana Cueto

        Hi Nancy….. your Spanish friend overseas…..
        Yes, this one is the right one, I do not think it is limited to one per customer, and for peeps that dare to risk, Nancy is trustable and nice. She already helped me with more purchases.

      • Nan Ferreira

        Hi Ana! Love you! I just sent you email telling you I am going right now to the special jewelry store that is open today on Thanksgiving and they are selling it today!!!!!!!! I will ask if I can buy more than one as you know i will get yours if I am only allowed to get one! Big hugs my friend!

    • Leann

      Oh no :(. That’s too bad! If you can’t get anyone to help you, you can send me an email on the contact form :).

  • Jane

    got mine today and I almost cried. It was boxed so beautifully.

    • Leann

      Wow! Your store let you take it home too? That’s amazing.

  • Jaz

    Anyone knows if there will be a black friday charm for Pandora in 2014?

    • Leann

      Yes there will be! 🙂
