Pandora Club Charm 2015 Preview

pandora-club-charm-2015-stockExciting news today as we have a first look at the upcoming new Pandora Club Charm for 2015!  Following the introduction of the Pandora Club Charm last year called Hidden Heart, the brand is bringing out a heart with a crown and the Pandora logo and 2015 engraved on the back.  As with last year, this one is a limited edition charm and also features a genuine diamond which makes it extra special.  The Club Charm will debut along with the Pandora Summer 2015 Collection on May 28th!

There was a rather complicated process to get the Club Charm last year which involved signing up for the Club on pandora.net then receiving a redemption voucher to take into the store for purchasing the charm.  This was not followed very closely and retailers were selling the charm to all customers not just club members but I would assume that it’s the same procedure for this year.  What do you think of this design?  Were you a fan of the idea for the club charm?  Did you get the one from last year?

    I have the Club Special from last Year and I would like to have the new one,too! It’s sweet and the little Diamond…….. Pandora calls it Club Special-but I think it is not a SPECIAL when
    everyone can buy it…….Am I wrong?

    Greetings from Germany!:-)
    (Sorry again for my english)

    • Laura Summers

      Your English is fantastic!!!

      • Zucker Schnute

        Thank you:-))))

    • Leann

      I agree, I didn’t like that either :(.

  • Jennifer

    I have last year’s charm and I like it. I like this design even more. However, I noticed they had lots of charms leftover that were sold on Rue ‘s site. That made it feel less exclusive and left me wishing I had waited to get it for a discount! I am a sucker for a limited edition; so guess I will be getting it. 😉

    • Leann

      Yes, exactly! I completely agree ;).

  • Yuki

    This one looks a lot like the princess heart charm long ago…it’s just not too appealing to me…

    • Leann

      That does look like they used the same mold! :/

    • LBates

      I totally agree. I think that I’ll pass.

  • Yuki

    And does joining the club get any benefits like discounts?

    • Leann

      No…maybe emails about promotions a couple days before if your market has promotions.

      • Sharene

        I’ve never received any “new” news from their emails. It was always old hat and already mentioned everywhere else. It seems Australia gets some sales though, I never have.

  • Colleen

    Love the charm and I will be purchasing it this year, although I’m hoping the process for getting one is much stricter this year – it was too easy to get one last year which diminished the concept of ‘exclusivity of the club’.

    • Leann

      Yes, I hope they do better with the process for buying these!

  • Andie

    Although I love the idea of the club charm, I don’t like how it doesn’t seem exclusive enough. I have last years charm but this one looks like a remake of a previous charm (not original). Also, what’s the point of being a club member? There are absolutely no perks. Maybe I’ll wait for the Rue Lala sale for this one. I like it enough but can certainly wait for a better price. 🙂

    • Leann

      That’s a good idea ;). It’s always a gamble though :o.

  • Lozzie

    I liked last year’s charm but I didn’t end up buying it. It just didn’t feel special enough to warrant spending $99AUD on it. I am hoping to be able to buy it a reduced rate when it is finally retired here in Australia.
    btw, joining the club here has been worth because I get emails re special Pandora offers which I would not normally be aware of. Often they are one day special offers which are worth buying.

    • Leann

      Yeah, that is pricey in Australia!

  • Melissa Rex

    I do like this one better than last years, but it looks like that same shiny silver that will scratch. My club charm last year is all scratched and for the money I am not sure it is worth it. And yes to many people were able to get the charm and it was not exclusive enough for me.

    • Leann

      Great point, it will definitely get scratched :(.

  • Polly

    I like this one so much better than last year’s charm! I still wish they could figure a way to keep it more exclusive…like make members order it directly from Pandora, never have it in a store…something like that. Only offer it for a special time by email to members. It would be more appreciated that way. Whatever the case, I like it and can’t wait!

    • Leann

      Ooh, that’s a great idea! Would probably be too much work for the Pandora office though, lol.

  • Alice Wonder

    I am wondering too, if it make sense to join in USA? I got an email last year, but it was not appealing to me at all. I like the princess charm, this one seem like e remake of princess charm to me.

    • Leann

      Not much benefit in the US but eh, it’s just an email ;).

  • Tanya

    I really don’t like it. I’m so disappointed that Pandora keeps on putting out the same designs. I really see it as them just cutting corners and using an old mold, banking on a cheap design. I hope Pandora comes back one day 🙁

    • Leann

      Yeah, the heart isn’t my favorite motif either :/. I wish they would have more unique designs too!

  • Bonnie May

    It’s nice, and I like the idea, but as everyone has already said: while some retailers may have followed “exclusive” protocol for selling it only to club members not all did, and then haha, joke was on us when it went on Rue for almost half price late last year. And all of that shiny silver = scratch central, just like last year’s. Of course, at some time it will probably find its way onto my bracelet, hopefully off of the Rue sale! 😉

    • Leann

      Great points! I agree completely :(.

  • Sharene

    I do like the charm as I do not have the “Princess” one. But I positively agree that it does seem like Pandora is saving money remaking designs. Just changing words. Not good! What the heck are they thinking? They don’t care ’cause they have ‘newbies” like me to purchase these. I did buy the one last year. I walked into some Jewelers and picked it up. No questions asked. I didn’t even know it was to be “exclusive”. What was the point of that ?

    • Leann

      Yes, many people probably don’t even care but for us fans that’s what makes it special :(.

  • Sharene

    Do we know how much this one is to cost?

    • Leann

      $75 I think.

      • Allison

        It’ll be $65.

  • Sharene

    I just thought of something. A few weeks back when you first received pictures of the Mothers’ Day and Spring you posted some pictures. On one of them was this little — almost Ivory colored square to the left of a bracelet. Did we ever find out what that charm was? Does anyone remember what I am talking about? Some one mentioned that they hope it is a Laptop??

    I do not believe I’ve seen any square looking charm/bead that resembles that one on that one photo. I hope someone knows what I am talking about 🙂

    • Leann

      It’s a locket-esque card dangle.

      • Sharene

        I realized that AFTER I wrote this and then seen your post. Now I know it isn’t what any of us thought 🙁 but it may be okay? And thanks for the price.

      • Leann

        🙂

  • SD

    This one is cute but meh. Better than last years though! 2014s was a cool idea but was huge and heavy and the lid keeps opening. I think the whole club charm is a nice idea but as mentioned in other comments, it doesn’t seem that exclusive. There were so many of last years charm left over at my local store!

    • Leann

      Yikes! Probably why they were discounted on Rue last year :O.

  • Eunice Quah

    Just to clarify, this charm would be released globally right?The Pandora outlets in Malaysia does not promote their products as well as the other countries unfortunately and the sales personnel are always clueless when I ask about the new releases

    • Leann

      Yes, global release. 🙂

  • Julia

    I’m a club member but I never received an email for last years club charm.Is this process just for concept stores???

    • Leann

      No, I think it was all stores. Yours might have had it behind the counter or sold out already?

  • Ruthy

    Definitely cuter than last year. I think I’ll have to get this one!

    • Leann

      Great! 🙂

  • Jaz

    This design is the much better n wearable than the last club charm. I could not place the last one on any of my bracelets to bland into their themes.

  • Lesley Watson

    Another epic fail………just not original and what is the point being In the club when these go on sale to the public anyway?????

  • Sharene

    On the Pandora Club site I tried to look up the Pandora Club charm and the Pandora Spring Collection event events … nothing. All ofthe searches come back to zip, zero, nothing AND Nada !! Why is that?

  • Jess

    How much was last years charm?

  • Holly Baker

    I missed getting the 2014 club charm and would really like to have it. Does anyone know where I could purchase it besides ebay?
    Thank you

    • Leann

      You can try one of the Pandora selling group on Facebook. Rue La La might have it but there’s no sale going on right now.

  • Holly Baker

    How do you find pandora charms on Rue? There’s no search button. Rue la la is the sight right?

    • Leann

      Yes, but they only have Pandora on sale every few months or so. I always post alerts when I see them coming up.

  • Sharyn

    Again, I would have loved a little gold. Why not a gold crown? But guess what, I have previous edition. So I guess I will have 2015.

    • Leann

      That is a good point. I guess they wanted to keep the cost down?

  • jem

    Got the “not so members exclusive charm” last year. I really hope this year they make a stricter policy on the distribution of this, cause I know some non-menbers having the charms and members that were not able to avail.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Yeah :/, they didn’t really follow the voucher thing at all.

  • Janet

    So we have yet another heart from Pandora. If other brands can make so many different designs, why can’t they? I’m tired of Pandora and have gone to Trollbeads and some others. The Pandora bracelets I have are very pretty, but there won’t be any more. There are only so many hearts and stars I feel like buying.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      There are a loooooot of hearts. I’m not a particular fan of this one either :/.

  • Cilia van Zal

    I do like the heart with the diamond but for a ‘year exclusive’ charm it would have been more special to see something new. And because the club charm has nothing to do with belonging to a club anymore they should rename it.
    I will still get it too though, eventually.
