Today is the official debut of the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2016 Collection! Typically it’s a smaller release but there’s still a lot of hearts for this lovers’ holiday. They’ve stuck to the traditional motifs and we’re seeing pink and bling for all these pieces. I’ve also included a highlight of almost all the promotions that will be available this season worldwide in this post.
I’m most intrigued by the Wild Hearts Muranos, and I’m told that these are made using a new German process which combines the Italian Murano glass with German Reichenbach glass. The beads also feature dichroic glass which adds a sparkle and iridescence to these Muranos. For North America (US), Jared will have two exclusive charms for Valentine’s Day following Pandora’s announcement that they will be growing their partnership with the retail chain, so this is a trend that will be continuing in the future (Sweet Love and Captivating Hearts). Interestingly, this year’s Chinese New Year charm is now available in Australia, Europe, UK, and Asia and is called the Piggy Bank; I hope the US gets it soon too!
With any big gift-giving holiday, Pandora offers a range of promotions to choose from. For North America from today through February 14th, there are three special deals: the Petals of Love jewelry gift set, Filled with Love bracelet set, and the Love is Forever charm. The individually pieces from these bundles will not be available for sale until after the promotional period. The Petals of Love comes in a large heart shaped box, Filled with Love has an exclusive jewelry holder wristlet, and Love is Forever also comes in its own heart shape box.
Globally, there are lots of amazing GWPs for Valentine’s Day! Starting with Australia, from January 28th – February 14th, they will have a cream colored quilted heart-shape jewelry box free with any purchase of $120AUD/$150NZD. The UK and Germany will be offering a similar GWP except it is pink rather than cream; the promotion starts today through February 14th or while supplies last and is £125GBP/€99EUR. The most exciting is a look at the new Asia exclusive gift which is a wooden music box! The promotion will start on January 28th and the spends are: Philippines – ₱23,000PHP (~$480USD), Singapore – $350SGD, Indonesia – Rp3,000,000IDR to have this GWP, and probably similar amount in other parts of Asia.
Honestly, I’m more excited for the promos than for the actual jewelry for this release with a couple exceptions. What do you think of these designs? Are you hoping to get Pandora for Valentine’s Day?
