Hot on the heels of the sneak peek at the new Thomas Sabo Karma Beads Spring/Summer 2015 Collection a couple days ago, today is its official launch! As I discussed, the themes are maritime in nature with influences of Valentine’s Day as well. The Karma Beads line has used a variety of materials since its debut and this collection is no different with additions of pavé beads, sterling silver, rose gold, and semi-precious stones.
To go with the nautical motif, the collection is predominantly white and blue. What’s really captured my attention are the animal beads that are so adorable! I’m incredibly tempted to start another Karma Beads bracelet and get the Green Octopus, Blue Pufferfish, Ocean Treasure, and Tortoise.
There is also a great selection of new rose gold charms including some designs that are duplicated from sterling silver charms. These mix well with the silver and gold tones and adds a touch of romance to the collection.
Lastly, my favorites from this brand is their stone beads and there are a number of fantastic new ones. I am intrigued by the White Mother of Pearl and the Amber specifically and would love to see them in person.
Thomas Sabo Karma Beads, much like the Pandora Essence line, have smaller cores that are meant only to go on their own chains. However, they do fit on Essence bracelets as well though the beads are slightly bigger than the Essence ones. For a full comparison, check out my video on Karma Beads vs. Essence. These are now available for purchase through the official website, Thomas Sabo, and at authorized retailers worldwide. What is your impression of this collection? Are you tempted to start with this brand?
