Pandora Club Charm 2014 Partially Released

pandora-club-charm-2014-live-shot*****UPDATE*****See below on how to get your voucher.

There has been some confusion as a few countries (including the UK) have indicated that the Pandora Club Charm 2014 will be releasing today versus March 13th, which I had heard was the official global launch for this special.  As yet, no one has even received the email voucher to redeem the charm as directed but a few lucky ladies have already been able to purchase it.  As opposed to sending out an email as their promotional material had specified, instead now all you have to do is print the voucher from the Pandora website. But online retailers are selling them without the voucher, which defeats the purpose? As far as I know, US stores have not gotten these yet or if they have, they’re keeping it under wraps until next week.  These gorgeous photos are courtesy of Dian Prahesti and show off the bead beautifully.

As I mentioned in the upcoming news for March, the Club Charm 2014 is a limited edition and an estimated 150,000 have been produced while there are 1.2 million members in the club.  Though, I’ve signed up with 3 emails and my husband is a member too, so perhaps the number is not quite that many.  The Club Charm will be sold at any Pandora retailer, although how many they are allocated depends on the number of Pandora members proportionally located in that area.  Anyhow, it’s nice to know that the exclusive will indeed be limited but it does seem to be causing a bit of anxiety for fans eager to get ahold of it.

The price will be $75USD/$99AUD/€69EUR/£60GBP and the articulated box hides a diamond inside.  I know I’ll be rushing to my store as soon as they can sell it, and I’ve already have a place for it on my bangle to accompany the Pandora shopping bag charm.  Are you excited for this special?  Will you be getting it for its exclusivity or to represent your Pandora addiction?

  • Lisa

    I am so excited to finally get this one on my bracelet! I’m going to put it with the shopping bag also.

    • Leann

      Me too! I feel like it’s been forever since it was discovered/announced.

  • Demelza Guing

    I received an email recently from pandora club about the charms arrival in shops in Europe. It never mentioned that it was only for club members. I actually took the message as it’s just going to available to anyone who can get it at the time of arrival. It said limited edition but nothing about it only being available with a voucher or to pandora club members. Must look for email.

    • Leann

      Interesting! Every country is operated differently so maybe they decided to do it that way. 🙂

  • Amalia J

    Wow where is Dian located not trying to pry but looks like she’s first! I got the code but sadly the store did not get it in stock yet.

    • Leann

      She’s in Australia but I’m pretty sure it’s not released there yet :o.

      • Amalia J

        Oh! 🙂

  • Carla Plume

    My store has it today and will be picking it up later today I have one on hold I was told I just need to show a picture of my profile on pandora club on my phone to them or a email they have sent me previous can’t wait I am pairing it with the pandora bag charm

    • Leann

      Awesome! I can’t wait until it’s out here too :).

  • GrizzzaBellla

    Has anyone from the US gotten a charm yet?? I’m calling my Pandora jeweler as soon as their store opens!!! I buy so much Pandora there they know me by name!!!

    • Leann

      Not out in the US yet :(.

  • Carla Plume

    Any UK girls who can’t get to a store not sure if they ship outside the UK but John greed Jewlery online has the club charm and you can purchase it without proof of being a club member

    • Leann

      Defeats the purpose, right?! Lol.

      • Carla Plume

        Yeah I know I wasn’t impressed by it

      • Leann

        Aww, not getting it then eh?

      • Carla Plume

        Yeah i bought it Thursday I did post on here when I got it just not impressed retailers are selling it online as that defeats the object of it being members only which makes it more appealing to me that’s all

  • GrizzzaBellla

    I’ve purchased several charms over the years that I couldn’t find in the US from John Greed. Very nice to deal with. It stinks that they are selling it without proof of club membership though. Not that it’s not hard to become a member. When I was at my Pandora jeweler a couple weeks ago they showed me the sample voucher that the US club members were supposed to be emailed. Still waiting for mine.

  • Lynn

    I live in the USA. When I went to the Pandora website this morning (Thursday 3/06/14) there was a notice my Purchase ID Voucher was available. I printed a copy and will try and pick up my Club Charm today!

    • Leann

      Thanks for the update, Lynn! I was very confused since all their emails/Facebook had said that there would be an email. Wish they would organize this better!

      • Lynn

        I went to the Pandora Concept Store at the Mall after work … they aren’t expecting any Club Charms until around March 17th. Then I called my neighborhood Store-In-Store and they expect their shipment next week. Since the # they’ll get will be limited they’re reserving one for me. 🙂

      • Leann

        Oh wow, that’s too bad you have to wait! I am so impatient :/.

  • Pattie Hall

    thank you, printed out my voucher and calling the store at 9 to see if they have them now and can I get one.feel like a kid at Christmas, this charm and than the free braclet I am in Pandora heaven.

    • Leann

      Woohoo! Did you get one? I don’t think it’s released in the US yet. 🙁

  • Beth

    I can’t decide if I want it. Any ideas for what themed bracelet to use it on?

    • Beth

      who am I kidding? I’m a sucker for LE stuff! Just printed my voucher and will likely go to the store after work!

      • Leann

        Hehehe.

      • Beth

        And I just got mine! Called my store and asked if they had it, they did so I went in. Glad I did since they said they were extremely limited. I was first purchaser!

      • Leann

        Woohoo! How do you like it?

      • Beth

        I like it much more in real life than in the pictures. I posted them on your facebook page, not sure how to do that here!

    • GrizzzaBellla

      I have no idea what charms I would wear it with, but I will buy it because it’s the 1st Limited Edition club charm.

    • Leann

      I’m going to keep it on a bangle with the shopping bag. My hobby/addiction/obsession! Lol.

      • Beth

        I took your advice and put it on a bangle. It’s the only thing I have on there (with clips) so of course now I *need* something else! 😉

      • Leann

        You gotta get the shopping bag! So perfect together ;).

      • Beth

        Hahaha! I’m trying to narrow my list for free bracelet! Since I’m going to get the travel airline exclusive package in May (I’ve already pre-ordered!) I’m thinking maybe the camera and the passport? Or maybe the Orioles dangle since it’s almost baseball season?
        The problem is there are too many bracelet ideas in my head!

      • Leann

        Where to start, right?! Lol. I’ll be focusing on getting the spring collection with the promo :). You can’t go wrong!

    • GrizzzaBellla

      Beth are you in the US?? Which state??

      • Beth

        I’m in us, in Maryland.

    • Coonedog 7

      Hi Beth I plan to make a Pandora Treasure bracelet. I will try and post a picture soon.

  • GrizzzaBellla

    Thank you Lynn. I’ll be a little late for work, but I’ve got them printed for all me emails!!! Calling the jeweler as soon as they open!!

  • GrizzzaBellla

    Just called my jeweler to have them hold mine until after work and they don’t have them yet. She said they don’t expect to get them for another week or two. They’re calling their Pandora rep to check for me.

    • Leann

      Isn’t it weird that they said it would be released on the 13th but some countries have it out today? Pandora has never done global releases well!

  • Nikki

    I’m new to the Pandora club, can someone explain to me how this works? Do you still have to pay for it even though you are a member? And what voucher is everyone talking about? Thanks!

  • April Lawton-Spink

    I just went to the Pandora website (Canada) and was able to print my voucher. Now I have to call the store and see if they have it!

    • Shauna

      Let me know how you make my local store in Canada told me they didn’t have them yet and the release was only on the 13th

      • Peggy

        That’s what I was told too. Don’t want to miss out because of misinformation

      • Leann

        Aww, we’ll have to wait then!

    • Leann

      It’s so exciting but I think we’ll have to wait another week here in North America :/.

  • Virginia

    Just printed my voucher from the Pandora site, but my jeweler says doesn’t have them yet. They will call me when they get them in, so hopefully no one will claim mine.

    • Leann

      Very nice! 🙂

  • GrizzzaBellla

    My jeweler was told they were getting some and the order had been processed, but they have no idea when they will actually come in. They said they would put two aside and call me, but I’ll keep checking. Won’t leave this to chance!!

  • Peggy

    It is $85 in Canada. Trying to decide. I have my voucher, printed from my club acct, but I don’t think they are in stores until next week. I hope they will clarify when they are in store, since there seems to be some confusion

    • Leann

      Yes, lots of confusion! Lol.

  • Kay

    Hi Leann, I have just ordered my club charm now off Jewel Hut online – no voucher needed. As you said some are just selling them online. Hope to receive it by Monday next week. So excited

    • Leann

      Woohoo! Kinda weird you don’t need a voucher or anything for online purchases. But I assume they’re limited on how many they have anyways. 🙂

      • Virginia

        OK. I ordered from the Jewel Hut. We’ll see when it comes. In the meantime, I’ll still wait for my local jeweler. No voucher was needed from them and they also had the Mother’s Day collection available.

      • Leann

        Nice! Are you going to be picking up multiples of the charm?

      • Virginia

        Yes. I should get the one from Jewel Hut next week. I hope that my jeweler holds one for me, if not then at least I’ll have one. Hopefully I will have two. I really don’t know why I want two, but I guess I do.

      • Leann

        Nice! I am thinking the same thing, but a second one would only sit in my drawer…hmmm decisions decisions…

      • Virginia

        When I get the first one I’ll decide. I want to play fair, but a bird in hand…. And I could use the money toward the GWP charms due out on the 20th

      • Leann

        I’m thinking of doing the same! I just got my one but if they’re still around during the bracelet promo… 😉

  • Peggy

    I just got my email saying they are in stores in Canada, I assumed US would be the same. Also, if interested, they are $85 in Canada

    • Leann

      Not at my store yet :(.

      • Peggy

        My email said ‘in store now’ but all 3 stores I called said the 13th. They need to be clearer. Glad I called first

  • Zucker Schnute

    I live in Germany. I have my voucher from my Member Account…..and I called my Pandora Store. I can get my Bead next week (Saturday). So I have to wait a few days. What a mess. Want to have it NOW!
    🙂 Patience is not my strong point:-)

    • Leann

      Haha, mine either! It’s been foooooorever since we found out about the charm. I neeeed it ;).

  • jae

    Just printed my voucher and called my store-Not available until 3/13 and they wouldn’t hold one for me 🙁 (I really dislike this store, but no choice on this) Oh, I’m in OK, USA

    • Leann

      Yes, I know the stores are recommended not to reserve them since they don’t know how many they’ll be getting :(. Very annoying though!

    • GrizzzaBellla

      My Jeweler assured me that they would hold for me once they get them in. But I have been dealing with this neighborhood jeweler for a very long time and I bury ALOT of Pandora there. I walk in and the owner’s know me by name and I wait for the same clerk to help me every time. As comfortable as I feel with them I will be calling periodically to ‘remind’ them.

      • Leann

        Nothing wrong with that! Haha, I do the same thing ;).

  • Pattie Hall

    called my store said they didn’t have them yet, would be the 13.

    • Leann

      Grrrr…my store just got them, so I think a trip to the mall tonight!

  • Laura Summers

    Leann – called our big concept store here in Richmond, VA. They’re expecting them tomorrow and WILL release them as soon as they get in. I was able to reserve one, and she said about half of what they expect to get are already reserved. There will be 65 sent to their store.

    Kinda disappointed – it’s an expensive charm, so I planned to wait until free bracelet promo, but it sounds like waiting won’t really be an option. 🙁

    • Leann

      Yay! My store just got them too, so I think I’ll be stopping by the mall tonight ;). I was also hoping to use this towards the bracelet promo… D:

      • Lisa

        Hi Leann,

        Which store are you referring to? I’ve called a few on the Eastside and no luck.

      • Leann

        Downtown at Westlake, they’ve got 50 :).

      • Lisa

        Thank you 🙂

      • Lisa

        Scratch that; found it!

  • Andrea

    I got my e-mail today!!!!

    • Leann

      Woohoo! Now more importantly, does your store have them? Lol.

  • Wendy Carr

    I’m so excited!! I have my voucher loaded up on my phone and our local concept store will hold ours for us. Yay!!

    • Leann

      Yay! How many are you getting, Wendy? I’m tempted to get another one, but it’d only sit in my box. Hmm…decisions decisions…

      • Wendy Carr

        Only the one, I’m afraid….there are so many others that I need to buy…. It would be good to save one extra for an investment though ..

      • Leann

        I am on the fence about that too! My store said they’ll let me know if they start disappearing off the shelves ;).

  • Alyize Castano

    Does anyone know if any Miami,Fl retailers have them?

    • Leann

      Sounds like the east coast got them already. You should call the store. 🙂

      • GrizzzaBellla

        I’m in CT and my store doesn’t have them yet

      • Alyize Castano

        Leann thank you I actually found it for anyone in the Miami, Fl area I found it at Yanko Jewelers Good Luck

      • Leann

        Great!

  • Tanya

    I wanted it because I have a bracelet with all square type charms on it and have not been able to fill it yet. I like it just because of its simplicity but I generally don’t like things with dates on them. I don’t know why but it bugs the crap out of me and I don’t usually buy them. So that sucks cause I think that is the deal breaker for me. I know its not a big deal but that little tiny date inside is gonna bother me all the time I know it.

    • Leann

      Awww, that’s too bad! Maybe you can get the date sanded off? 😉 What other square charms do you have? I’m trying to think but coming up with a blank.

  • Danielle Lee

    I wonder how limited edition this charm will be, it is stated on Pandora Singapore’s facebook that it will be availabe again in August?

    Quote:

    Dear fans, thank you for your enthusiastic support for the exclusive PANDORA Club Charm. These beautiful charms have been sold out today and will be available again in August 2014. Do LIKE our page to get updates closer to the date as we will not be taking in reservations for the charms. Have a lovely weekend!

    • michelle

      I’m wondering as well.

    • Leann

      Oh wow, maybe they’re getting another shipment since they’re sold out of them already. That’s crazy!

      • Laura Summers

        They’re doing another run? Guess it’s not exclusive/limited after all. Makes me really rethink the charm. 🙁

      • Leann

        I suspect some markets didn’t get many of them. Who knows!

    • Maya

      Wow, that is lame. Takes the “limited” right out of the equation if they do that. 🙁

  • Sharon

    I got mine this morning in Ireland. As usual, the Concept Store staff are woefully unprepared. They didn’t know what it was, couldn’t figure out initially where they were stored, and finally couldn’t run it through the till, so I don’t have a proper receipt for it, (they put it through as a repair) no product code either – but at least I have it. It’s pretty ugly to be honest, and I think it’ll scratch badly but as it’s LE I suppose I had to get it. It goes in the collector items section, not on a bracelet I think. Slight correction, Leanne, it’s €69, not €59.

    • Leann

      Yikes, that does sound like they’re poorly prepared! You’d think they’d have the marketing materials or at least know the darn thing was being released. Haha, it does look plain on the outside and I wonder how often I’d actually open it to see look at the heart. Thanks for the correction! That’s what happens when I try to edit late at night ;).

  • Maddie

    Hey Leann I’m so excited about this charm. It resembles the the older more simple Pandora designs in my mind. I do have a question, will all the stores like stop in shops or just the main Pandora stores?

    • Leann

      All stores, just depends on how many they get. 🙂

  • Pattie Hall

    my store here in GA.just put them out to sell, they are holding one for, my husband is on the way to get it.cant wait to have it.

    • Leann

      Yay! Did you get it? What do you think?

  • Andrea

    My store has them and I will be picking it up on Sunday, along with the Spring Collection. I’m in Norfolk, VA. Sooooooo excited!!!!!!

    • Leann

      Woohoo! I’m still waiting for the spring collection :/. My store said maybe Monday or Tuesday!

  • Coonedog 7

    Hello Leann Guess what I got my Pandora Club Charm today. In order to purchase the charm early you have to have your (Pandora Club) voucher printed ( ?? if you can use your smart phone). Its very simular to the Valentine’s Day
    charm. Over all I am very happy.

    • Leann

      Yay! I’m glad you got it :). How do you like it?

  • Andie

    just got mine tonight. I was the first one to get it at my local Pandora shop. It’s pretty big and very shiny. Looks a little awkward on my bracelet and is top heavy. I do like it though…..hopefully it will grow on me. 🙂

    • Leann

      Nice! I just got it yesterday too. You’re right, it’s definitely top heavy :/.

  • Lori Thompson

    I got it today in MD. They also had the new Spring charms out. I like the club charm. It’s big and shiny and the diamond is in a heart so it goes with my love theme bracelet. My store received 90 club charms. They took the voucher.

    • Leann

      Awesome! I’m still waiting for the spring collection. Did you get anything else? 🙂

      • Lori Thompson

        No I didn’t get anything else. Going to get the pink butterfly murano with free bracelet. They didn’t have the house charm. charms are pretty and my club one looks scratched up also:( I still like it though.

      • Leann

        Nice! I’m going to wait until the bracelet promo too :).

  • n rostock

    Got mine today. Love it.

    • Leann

      Yay! 😀

  • Coonedog 7

    I got mine today. Loving my new charm. Pandora store did require you to have the voucher before purchase. Yahoo 🙂 I am glad I printed the voucher before going to the store.

    • Leann

      Oh that’s nice :). It sounds like all the stores are doing it differently.

  • maybelline

    Got mine today too! My store was kind enough to call me when they got them, but management wouldn’t allow them to hold any as they thought it wouldn’t be fair to everyone who wanted one. I’ll agree that it’s a little on the big side and looks a bit awkward on the only Pandora bracelet I have going right now. But I still love it nonetheless, and I think it looks great in the shots Pandora has of it on a bracelet with other charms, so I suppose it’s a matter of pairing it with the right charms, which I intend to do at some point in the future. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to get it later while the free bracelet promo is going, but I’m very happy I was able to get one. Hope all the ladies who really covet this charm are able to get one! 🙂

    • Leann

      Awesome! I’m glad you got one :). I thought it was smaller in person than in photos, haha, but it’s still pretty big. What do you have it planned with?

      • maybelline

        Maybe with mostly heart themed silvers and pave. I think the design allows it to be combined with clear CZ only and still not look like it’s lacking in color or dull. And the heart clear CZ charm (which looks like the one depicted inside the club charm) seems appropriate too!

      • Leann

        How cute! I love that idea :). There are certainly plenty of heart charms to choose from.

  • Robin D.

    Since reading that this charm is large and will scratch easily, I wonder how it would look on a Pandora necklace? 🙂

    • Ashley

      That’s what I was thinking! I got my charm on Friday (in Toronto) and I’m too afraid to put int on my bracelet because of that reason, my bangle got scratched very fast.

      • Leann

        Yeah, I’ve already got a scratch on it :/. Nature of the finish I suppose!

    • Leann

      Sounds interesting! I bet it looks great :).

  • Maya

    I just bought two today! I have them on layaway so that I can take advantage of the March promo with them, so they won’t be in my possession until March 20-23. I will be starting a “club charm” bangle where only the yearly club charms will go on it. 🙂 I *might* make an exception with the cute Pandora shipping bag charm though…

    • Leann

      Very cool! That’s great the store will hold it for you :). The shopping bag is a great choice ;). I hope they’ll do more in the coming years!

      • Maya

        Me too. I like the concept of the club charm over the Black Friday charm so these will be nice to “collect”. Can’t wait to have the charm in my possession! 🙂

        I do hope they don’t bring the charm back mid-year like I read in sometime else’s comment though… it will make them feel less social/LE. 🙁

  • Sandi

    Got mine from the Pandora boutique in Dubai Mall yesterday (March 8)! The sales associate was a little confused as to whether it was “confirmed to be sold,” but her supervisor jumped in to the rescue and said it was officially launched. It’s a lot larger than the other charms on my bracelet (and it’s already scratched all over), but still looks very pretty!

    • Leann

      Very nice! It sounds like the stores are allowed to sell them as soon as they got it :). I’m glad you like it!

  • Leann

    You bet! Isn’t that funny, I felt the same way! 😀 Thanks for the info about Chamilia, it’s hard to keep up these days :).

  • Andrea

    Hi Leann, I got my Club Charm and most of the Spring Collection today sending you a few pics as to what I have come up with so far…..will send more pics when I decide what bracelet to put the club charm on. PS The new dangle initials are something I wasn’t really interested in, but I ended up buying one today and added it to my Essence Bracelet……..

    • Leann

      Love your picks!! They just got to my store but I probably won’t go see them until Thursday :/. How do you like the Daisy Murano? They all look so beautiful <3.

  • Lynn

    Went to pick up my reserved charm but wasn’t a fan and passed. 🙁 Was anyone else disappointed in the price point and design?

    • Leann

      Aww, that’s too bad. I love the specialness of it. 🙂

  • Melissa Rex

    Got mine this weekend! I live in Willow Grove PA. They didn’t have very many. I did need the voucher though ! I really like but I am scared as well it will scratch 🙁 I think the concept is cute

    • Leann

      Nice! That’s awesome that you got one :).

  • Zucker Schnute

    It’so easy:-) I ordered my Club Charm at the “Pandora estore!” So I don’t need to go to the Pandora Shop-just waiting for the postman:-) Can you order it in the U.S, too?

    • Leann

      They’re not being sold online in the US and we don’t have an eStore…at least not yet. Lol.

  • Kay

    My Pandora Club charm arrived today, Im thrilled with it, so lovely and polished. Lovely sparkly diamond.

    • Leann

      Yay! That looks wonderful <3.

  • Amna Spears

    I got mine over the weekend…overall not very impressed. I agree w/previous comments, it seems it will scratch easily. However it did come in a special LE club charm box sleeve, which adds to the “specialness” of it. So, most likely will be a collector item for me.

    • Leann

      Definitely a collector’s item! 🙂

      • Amna Spears

        Wow Leann! After seeing your “pandora” themed pandora bracelet (lol!!) featuring the club charm, I might end up wearing it after all!!
        I had never been interested in any of those charms and was not that impressed with the club charm. However after seeing ur bracelet, I’m inspired!!
        My list for the upcoming bracelet promo has jst doubled, lol!!

      • Leann

        Haha, I am always here to help! 😉 It really is a Pandora-centric bangle, but has a lot of meaning for me. Sounds like you’ll be getting a couple bracelets!

      • Amna Spears

        Yes, unfortunately for my pocketbook!

      • Leann

        Hahaha, at least you’re getting the promos tho ;).

      • Sarah

        Oh where is this i’d love to see a pic!

  • Mary LIbby

    Just got mine. Love the idea of opening Pandora’s box.

    • Leann

      Me to, it’s so cute! 🙂

  • Jamie

    On Saturday I got my charm from my local shop-in-shop store. When I went to my concept store the next day to buy another polishing cloth, the employees there said their shipment of club charms had not arrived yet. They had not seen the charm yet in person so I showed them mine. Since then, the charm already has more scratches than any other charm I have (mostly on the sides from where it rubs against the other charms) but I kind of like it. The scratches make the charm seem like it’s a box protecting a special charm inside.

    • Leann

      Very cool! That’s so funny that they hadn’t gotten it yet. Mine is also scratched :/. I’ve got a big one on the top that I don’t know how that happened. Oh well, it doesn’t bother me too much but I wonder if I should buy another one to keep pristine, lol.

    • Libby

      I came to this thread to see if anyone else had issues with the club charm scratching and pitting. I usually wear more than one bracelet at a time and usually wear the club charm on a bangle. The weathering of this charm was really bothering me, and I was debating on buying another charm, until I read your comment. I love the idea of the plain, beat up box hiding the sweet, little prize inside! THANK YOU JAMIE!

    I finally picked mine up. It’s super cute. A little plain on the outside but on the inside…such a surprise! Love it! Look at it close with a loop! It’s adorable. My normal store checked my voucher before I picked it up.

      That’s awesome! I’m glad you like it :D. I love the diamond detail inside. 🙂
