Pandora Summer 2013 Collection Prices and Live Photos

pandora-summer-2013-cover13I’ve been on pins and needles for this collection to drop and seeing it on the Pandora Cruise has only whetted my appetite. As I’ve mentioned many times, one of the main themes for this collection is the ocean and sea life. It was especially disappointing that we weren’t able to purchase these charms during the cruise because it would have matched the unforgettable moments of the trip perfectly. Fortunately, I was able to take away the new teal Fascinating Murano, as my darling husband so graciously donated it to me after winning the raffle, which matched the waters of the Caribbean perfectly.

The prices for this set are decent considering all the stones and details on the charms, no real surprises there. I know this release is going to be expensive for me as I want all the beads! So I’m glad that the cruise rebate is going to come in handy ;). These high-quality images show CZ accents that were not apparent before, e.g. the bottom of the sail boat, the hoop for the sunglasses, and the hoop on the Star of David; I love bling so this is a nice surprise.

In addition to these charms, the Pandora smooth triple leather bracelets will also be debuting in five colors. The teal definitely screams out at me from this set but if I do get one, I’ll probably go with black because it’ll be more versatile to wear. I’m eager to test out their durability so I’m definitely looking forward to the leather bracelet promo in July.

We were able to preview most of the collection on board during the trip and I’m happy to offer these live-shots of the new pieces! It was difficult to take pictures while we were underway since the boat was swaying a lot and the lighting was not ideal, so I tried to pick the best ones. I didn’t think I could be more excited for the collection but I certainly am after seeing them in person. Splish-splash is at the top of my wishlist, which pieces are on yours?

    thanks Leann for all the info and seeing these pics made me want a few more…love the summer charms

    • Leann

      It was torture to see them in person but couldn’t take it home with us. πŸ™

  • Tracy

    These pictures are amazing! Splish Splash and the Sea Star are my favorites, I love the detail. And now that I see these pictures, I have to start saving for the all gold charm, that is so much prettier in your pictures than the stock picture.

    Because of you :)… I’ve become taken with the Novobeads mini czs, I just bought the twilight group with their last promo and love them. I really like how they add color and sparkle, but are still small and don’t overwhelm the silver charms. I a thought I might buy some of them for my summer bracelet, I thought the Dream Lagoon might be comparable to the Fascinating Teal coming out, and there’s another one that is very similar to the Aqua.

    But now that I’ve seen your pictures, I think I’m going to be buying my first Pandora glass beads. The Aqua and Teal are just gorgeous! And I don’t think the novobeads will look the same with this new collection. I’m also surprised how much I also like the multi color Sea Glass (ack!) … how does it look in person?

    • Leann

      Thanks, Tracy! Seeing them in person was awesome. I’m so glad you like the Novobeads! The Dream Lagoon kit will actually look great with the new fascinating beads, they’ve got a wonderful shimmer to them. I reviewed them here on my Novobeads introduction. The Sea Glass are interesting, we only saw the purple and the multi-color, not the indigo but they’re not like anything else in the line. I think the multi will look good with the teal and aqua and the purple is very purple ;).

  • Trish T. Pandora

    Thanks again, Leann, for another information article and photoshoot! How I’ll ever manage to keep money in my bank account is beyond me! xoxo

    • Leann

      You’re so welcome, Miss Trish ;).

  • Patricia Isabelle Miclat Black

    I wanna get the sea star, on of a kind and the happy crab definitely!

    • Leann

      Yes, definitely those too!

  • Alexandra Mitchnik

    Thanks for sharing your unforgettable moments .
    I like this collection more than the spring one. My favorite beads are Fascinating Teal, Splish-Splash and One Of A Kind. The Starfish clip looks promising . I love Pandora’s enamel beads so Lighthouse and Up And Away are also on my wish list.
    Obviously I need to meet them in person.
    Thank you very much for your review and photos. It looks like you enjoyed the cruise a lot.

    • Leann

      You’re welcome, Alexandra. I had a great time on the cruise! Yes, it always looks different in person. πŸ™‚

  • Elyse

    Your photos are fantastic! I too am more excited about this release more than any other so far this year. What charms do I want? It would be easier to list the ones I don’t. From the posts here I think splash-splash is going to be very popular!

    • Leann

      Thanks, Elyse! I completely agree with you; I think pretty much everything in this release is on my wish/want list ;). Splish-splash is amazing! Definitely will be a bestseller.

  • Christine

    Any idea why two of the sea glass muranos look like they have the larger core and one looks like it has the newer, smaller one? Personally, the size of the core doesn’t really matter to me either way, but I’m just curious.

    • Leann

      They all have the larger cores; the stock photo is resized so it might just be a trick of the scaling.

  • JeanneP

    Wow! I am in love with this collection!! I adore the smooth leathers and really want the teal one…and the black…and the purple! Love the seaglass muranos and the splish splash! Really nice collection! Imstopped in to our new store last night but did not see any of the new ones out yet. The place was PACKED! Mother’s Day is huge for them!! Thanks so much for sharing all the cool pics!

    • Leann

      You’re welcome, Jeanne! I bet they were extremely popular for Mother’s Day ;). They should be out soon, some stores already have them!

  • Tanya Flynn

    Thanks Leann, I can’t wait either! Fabulous write-up and pics. I definitely will want to get the new glass ones and the starfish charm…at least!

    • Leann

      You’re welcome, Tanya :). I was so happy to see them in person.

  • AnnWoo

    Wasn’t the summer collection supposed to also include International pendants for Venice and Australia?

    • Leann

      The national icons are scheduled for July in a separate release.

  • Jeanne

    I definitely like this release better than the spring release! I will have to see them in person, but I’m thinking Splish Splash will be a must have! I am probably in the minority here, but I really don’t like the sea glass. It reminds me of speckled Easter egg candies.

    • Leann

      Hehe, the sea glass looks better in person. This release gave me a much better first impression than the spring collection :D.

  • Aida

    Both Facination beads are beautiful, I love the teal and aqua.
    My birthday is July so I think the crab will be finding itself on my bracelet real soon!

    • Leann

      That’s perfect! He’s a pretty one ;).

  • Melinda Foofie Deyhle

    I might actually break down and get a Pandora leather bracelet… I am a huge Troll fan and only have 2 pandora silvers, but the teal shades are calling me!

    • Leann

      It’s a lovely color, very rich and shimmery. Hopefully some Trollbeads will fit on the bracelet too! ;).

  • Bonnie May

    I think I’m just going to have to cross my fingers that birthday presents come from my wish list! As a July birthday the Happy Crab is a must have, I love the teal stone in Sea Star, and Splish-Splash is just too cute with the dangling tail! My coworker has already said she’s planning on getting me the sunglasses, and I’m thinking Love Struck will make a great “new aunt” gift from my BFF! I’ll have to pick the sea glass Murano’s in person, though. Pandora is evil. πŸ˜€

    • Leann

      Woohoo! It looks like you’ve got it all planned out ;). You’ve got some great gifts coming your way!

  • Marva Givens

    Thank You for the live shots. I like more of the summer collection now that I saw the live shots. I already wanted the Aqua and Teal Fascinating, now I’m sure about the lighthouse and the sunshine diva.

    • Leann

      They’re all wonderful, it’s so hard to pick! I’m glad there’s promotions coming up to save my money for ;).

  • Ashley

    The one I’m really really wanting is the Ocean Treasures to go on my gold bracelet. I also like Happy Crab, we have two pet hermit crabs. Actually, my son wanted the pet crabs while on vacation a few years ago, now he wants nothing to do with them since they’ve gotten pretty good size, so my husband and I have gotten the task of feeding and loving the pet hermit crabs! πŸ™‚ Splish Splash does look like a fun and different type of charm for Pandora. I also want the sunglasses dangle. πŸ™‚

    • Leann

      Yeowza, gold! It looks glorious in person, definitely a must have for any gold lover. Aww, kids…sounds like you need to get two of the crab charms! There’s too many I want, I’m definitely getting all the silver sea creatures charms :D.

  • Annie

    I was lucky enough to receive the glasses for my birthday! The lady at the store had gotten them 2 hours before my mom got there. I’m in love with the bead!

    • Leann

      Wow, lucky! I have yet to see them in the store yet, but I’m excited! I’ll have to restrain myself ;).

  • Liz

    Your blog is wonderful! Thanks for the updates! I found your blog while searching for exclusive asian charms, I am living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and before I get home, I want to have some special charms. Now, I am going for that “Fortune bag” πŸ™‚ The teal Muranos or bangles didn’t arrive yet, I think they are light years away but it keeps my money with me until I go to the US! Better prices more charms!!! I will definitely buy the teal Muranos, I am already dreaming with them! πŸ˜€

    • Leann

      Thanks, Liz :). The prices are definitely better in the US than in Asia. The fascinating beads and bangle will get there soon :).

  • Nicola Beeson

    When will the Summer collection be available?

    • Leann

      It’s available now in the US!

  • Geral

    Hi, do you know if the summer collection will be available on Perlen?


      I would like to know that too. I just received my first order from them (I spent waaaaay more than I should have). Probably why I received them super fast.

    • Leann

      Unfortunately not :(.

  • Kasia

    Hey, do you know when the sea glass fascinating charms will be available in Europe? We have all the others from the summer collection but those.
    I really want one πŸ˜‰

    • Leann

      Hi Kasia, the sea glass muranos are exclusive to North America at the moment. πŸ™

  • Kasia

    Thank you for your reply. πŸ™‚
