Today’s post is dedicated to the review of the Pandora Winter 2018 collection! This collection is somewhat traditional Pandora, with ice and sky charms contrasting with fun holiday charms. In the meantime, there are some new whimsical beads to add and dilute your collection.
Pandora did not give permission to view the entire collection, so we will only present the available charms — this is mainly the Pandora Rose or Shine collection, or decorative beads, so almost all the new items are presented in the review. And, in any case, if you go to your local store and look through the catalog, you can see the whole range of new products there.
The new collection will be released on November 1st. As usual, we cover charms and bracelets in our review — other jewelry will be in the description later. Follow us for a full overview of the collection!
Pandora Winter 2018 Collection Preview
Let’s start our review with the traditional frosted beads — and the less traditional — “Melter of Hearts” — a fun little charm new to Pandora this year. It’s made from Murano glass, though we can’t figure out what material the eyes in this charm were made from! The rest of the beads are more suitable for frosty themes — they are given seasonal «frosty» names, most of them are quite abstract in design and multifunctional. Our favorite charm is the red version Dazzling Snowflake.
Some of our favorites are presented in the next collage. Charm ”Mug of hot chocolate”is a great choice for hot drink lovers who want to add a Christmas flair. Another amazing bead — “Christmas train with gifts”.
We’re not sure why the charm “Ice” turned out to be in this collage, and not in the part of the collection with “frosty accessories”.
Cosmic charms are also presented — Security chain is lovely and would look good on both a Christmas and space themed bracelet. And, if you want to combine these two themes on your bracelet, there is always charm. “Santa in space”!
We peeped into this year’s holiday limited edition bracelet collection. Charm»Christmas ornament” is a mother-of-pearl version of last year’s Rockettes charm with a cute raised crescent moon. Oddly enough, Pandora provided this photo with the fall collection, but we believe that this was a mistake. However, this charm was released as part of the fall collection in some countries and is available for purchase there now — for example, in France. The reason for this sale is unknown to us.
Very good to look with these beads will be a limited edition bracelet Firework. Again, Pandora gave us a photo of this charm in the fall collection, and they probably put it on sale earlier too.
This bracelet would look good with any themed charms, but the charm “Dazzling desires” looks especially amazing. If you look closely, the enamel plate on the back of the bead shines brightly, and we are sure that it looks even more impressive live.
“dazzling fireworks” looks a lot like snowflakes.
The next two charms are regional releases — they are not part of the normal UK catalogue. This charm “Our Lady Aparecida” quite nicely detailed in enamel and silver.
Charm “Radio City” similar to the Rockettes charm that came out last year.
Finally, this beautiful blue star clasp bracelet is presented!
