One week is left before the release of the new Pandora Spring 2018 collection, and today, as usual, we have beautiful photos of all the new charms and bracelets for you, as well as many personal comments! Due out on March 15th, this release has been generally well received by fans and offers something new after years of exclusively floral Pandora Spring collections.
The standalone Pandora Shine line will be launched this coming Thursday — we are not yet allowed to write about this collection before its official launch. The Pandora Disney Spring 2018 Collection won’t be released until April 12, and so we can’t preview it at this time either.
This post covers an overview of all the charms and bracelets coming out next week. Please see the Pandora Spring 2018 Tag for more jewelry.
Pandora Spring 2018 collection bracelets
First of all, pay attention to the new concept of the Pandora bracelet — sliding braceletwhich can be undone at the ends to add new charms.
Bracelet Smooth Pandora Signature offers a more neutral take on the Lock Your Promise bracelet, which was released for Valentine’s Day. It has a detachable lock, and many have speculated that detachable locks will eventually be sold separately, just like the Trollbeads.
The last representative of charm bracelets, Wildflower Meadow, has a fastener in the form of a flower; however, our favorite detail is the little dangling purple ladybug. She’s so cute! We would have preferred it without the lilac crystals so that all the elements fit together, but we still really like it.
Charm Collection Pandora Spring 2018
As always for Pandora’s spring collection, we have a plethora of nature-inspired beads, but this time it’s special that water is the key motif, not flowers! Blue Swirls mimics the flow of water by contrasting bright silver beads with various shades of blue enamel.
AT Blue Ripples the same design is observed, but using a light blue stone.
We also offer you a bead Aqua Heart.
Charms Enchanted Cobblestone available with clear and blue crystals.
Next, we have a set of rainbow beads! They are also nature-themed, but other than that, they are fun in their own right.
Rainbow of Love It has a rather childish design, but we have always liked the enameled multi-colored elements, and, apparently, therefore, we are steadily drawn to it! Several people have mentioned that this bead can also perfectly symbolize the pride badge, and we agree with that!
We think that the enamel does not look so good on the openwork design. heart beads — the yellow color is too bright, but to each his own!
The rainbow effect is also observed in the inlays of the next two beads — the spacer and the security chain. Arcs of Love. We love the design of the second one, as the little cloud decoration in the middle of the chain makes it really cute, although it’s hard to imagine this decoration on anything other than a purely rainbow-themed bracelet!
And finally, we have our favorite «rainbow» decoration — a bead Iridescent Rainbow Glass Murano glass. Rainbows and clouds are depicted under bright iridescent blue glass. This design is so fun and cheerful that we’ve dedicated it to a separate themed bracelet.
Below you can see all rainbow charms. The Hearts enamelled bead looks much better live than we expected.
Next, we suggest paying attention to the line of more traditional Pandora Spring beads, combining floral and fairy motifs in a very beautiful collection. Enchanted Nature. Once again, our absolute favorite is the Murano glass charm, which depicts delicate flowers and two small copper bees in soft pastel colors. If these beads look as beautiful in real life as in the photo, then they can definitely become one of the favorites.
In actual photos, the glass doesn’t look as bright, but the beautiful fine detailing is certainly there:
Sparkling Snail is a delightful bead that combines Pandora’s more modern style with all the quirkiness of old beads.
Here is a small sneak peak of the Snail bead in this wonderful shot:
This little bead Cute Mouse in the form of a mouse, we also really like it. Although it doesn’t look as detailed as most classic Pandora animal jewelry, it still looks very cute and reminds us of an edible sugar candy mouse. And the beauty of this mouse is that it has a small movable tail!
We offer you two real shots — fortunately, this bead looks just as cute in real life as it does in production photos.
We love the whimsical swirls on the bead Enchanted Tea Cup, and on the rim of the cup you can see a small bird. The bow they chose is fortunately not encrusted with crystals!
To combine with the previous one, Pandora made a bead Tea Pot, on the spout of the teapot of which there is also a small bird. This is a highly detailed bead and looks great in production pictures as well.
We love the look of both of these beads — the tiny birds are very distinct.
Nice to see a simple silver design in Spring Bird House. Of course, I still wanted the inscription “Sweet Home” (Eng. — “Native Home”) on the back, as it seems to us that this adds extra sentiment to the bead, but in general it looks very nice.
Glorious Blooms they look quite tropical due to their coloring and, like the aquatic beads described above, are more suitable for the summer collection.
Pandora has begun releasing seasonal versions of their popular button beads. Radiant Hearts, which this time display the spring version of the design. This one has silver flowers around the edge, and a very cute ladybug and dragonfly that seem to be crawling on the crystal.
On openwork Promise of Spring you can read the words «Love Life» (eng. — «Love life»), looming against the backdrop of flowers and dragonflies.
Dreamy Dragonfly looks completely abstract on one side, but when you turn this bead, you will see a beautiful dragonfly! We love the combination of modern and romantic in this bead.
Also, your attention is offered a separator Wildflower Meadow.
Security chain Wildflower Meadow also belongs to the collection of jewelry with floral design, although we liked the other security chain with detailed floral elements more.
Chandelier Drops It has an elegant design, but it’s hard for us to imagine how it will look on a bracelet in real life — small details will look strange and awkward as soon as you want to add other charms and jewelry next to it. This bead can look good as a separate decoration on a leather bracelet.
Despite all the beauty and drama, it is worth considering how practical it will be Enchanted Tassel in everyday wear! It will be interesting to see how this jewelry will be placed on display bracelets in Pandora stores.
So, the Pandora store in Stonestown stylized it this way:
Enchanted Heart Tassel very reminiscent of the popular charm in 2014 Chinese Lantern in red enamel and would be a great addition to this charm on an Asian themed bracelet!
Our favorite from the Enchanted collection, this is without a doubt the safety chain. It has such a thin, intricate design, yet looks more secure than the above chain. Wildflower Meadow.
You can see this jewelry in action along with the bead. Enchanted Heart Tassel.
This clip reminds us of those beautifully decorated heart-shaped gingerbread cookies that you can buy at fairs in Germany! This bead would look good on a themed bracelet, like a Hansel and Gretel themed piece.
And now we move on to love and family-themed beads, which depart from the main nature motif of this spring collection. Chain Arcs of Love offers a more general version of the rainbow design we’ve seen before — there is no cloud on the chain.
This safety chain is captured here with two new Bella Bot beads in Rose:
Perfect Palswith soft mother-of-pearl enamel and bunny/bunny silhouette, can be perfectly matched with mother’s day 2018 beads.
Charm Princess not much to our taste, because her facial features seem rather strange!
Playful Wink emoji style looks the same on both sides, judging by the production photos.
Clips Arcs of Love will be sold with pink and clear crystals.
Enamel beads Enchantment Sold in two colors — blue and pink. The former pairs well with the aforementioned nautical jewelry, while the latter pairs well with softer, family-friendly charms.
The pink version is captured in this beautiful shot:
Suspension Ribbon Heart Glass also available in pink and blue, offering glass drops with a twisted ribbon pattern.
Blue charms pair beautifully with Blue Swirls charms in this stylized bracelet:
They remind us of the glass droplets that Pandora briefly released in 2013, if anyone else remembers this — wonder if they can last longer!
Charm Pearly Dreams did not appear in the North American catalog that we had a chance to review.
Finally, we bring to your attention Beautiful Bot, perhaps the most talked about charm of this collection at the moment! She has movable arms and legs and attaches to your bracelet with her head. This is a rather unprecedented design from Pandoraand we can’t wait to see how buyers pair it.
In this real image, you can see both the silver and pink versions of the Bella Bot, along with a cute box for the Asian region! We do not know if this package will be available in other regions.
