I first wrote about the Pandora retirement list for this year last December and we finally have the official word on what will be leaving the collection! The discontinuation is effective immediately, but it doesn’t seem like retailers have been as quick to return these charms back to Pandora as the previous seasons. Most of these were part of the after-Christmas sale so the stocks should have been somewhat culled from that.
The most surprising changes from the rumored charms and the official list is that there is only one two-tone (Bible dangle), one clip being discontinued, and no gold! Which is great news for those of us who like the older Pandora aesthetic. Otherwise, this is a much smaller collection than the previous years, although there are still a number of dangles and glass beads leaving the line. A lot of bracelets are leaving too, including the rather new fabric Essence bracelets.
I like that there isn’t as many designs that are being retired but there are still ones I’m sad to see go. Unfortunately some of the silver charms are being axed in favor of more sparkly versions, so I’m happy that at least the boy and girl will have updated designs still in silver. How do you feel about these charms? Are you going to get some of these before they’re gone for good?
