I heard rumors regarding a possible UK exclusive charm for 2013 a few months back with no details on when it would be released or what it would be. Well, thanks to sources online we do have a description and general information on this beautiful charm set to commemorate the birth of the first child between Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge. This child will be third in line to the throne of the British Monarchy, one of the oldest sovereignties left in the world.
The couple’s wedding was also a highly anticipated and celebrated event with Pandora honoring the moment with a limited edition Royal Wedding Charm which was only supposed to be available from April to October 2011. However, not only did the UK offer this charm, it was also sold in Australia and with plenty of charms to sell until their stocks ran out. This exclusive charm was a version of the puffy heart with a synthetic blue spinel on one side and the engraved initials of the happy couple on the other. The stone looks much darker than the one shown here, but I love it all the same.
Now, this new charm is expected to be released in June 2013, ahead of schedule for the July birth of the baby. This supposedly UK exclusive charm is similar to the current baby carriage, with the words “Royal Baby 2013” on one side and a clear CZ stone and crown engraved on the other side. Based on this description, I came up with a mockup of what this charm may look like to help with visualizing the charm. With the sex of the baby undisclosed to the public, a clear CZ is a great choice rather than the usual blue or pink colors to represent gender. I’m very excited for this bead both for its exclusivity and because it celebrates the royals – in America we don’t have anything similar to the grandiosity of the aristocracy and I’ve always been somewhat of an English history enthusiast so this is right up my alley! Of course, more details to come as this news is confirmed by Pandora. What do you think of this new expected charm?
