Winter’s Charm

In the upcoming month popular jewellery brand Pandora will release the Winter 2013 collection to the masses of bracelet charm fanatics in the UK. Already on promotion in the US we can have a sneak peek at what the collection, entitled Winter Wonderland, will inspire.

Already the collection is promoting a feminine style of sparkle and gems, especially with one of the collections themed “Sparkle”. Within this collection are the classic pavé designs in purple, red and the more expensive but original gold. Here there is a gorgeous new addition to the family with Blue Whimsical Light which stands out from the collection as the stones are bigger and not fitted as closely together as the pavé but still have that eye catching dazzle. Also new in Sparkle are two dangle charms in purple and ice blue called Faceted Beauty. These clear gems are perfect to mix up a bracelet of clips and Murano beads with a dainty dangle.

It wouldn’t be Pandora if there wasn’t an aptly seasonal themed collection. This year we have two. The Holiday theme contributes a clip called Night and Day which is double sided so you can choose to display a sun or a moon. Also a fun silver dangle charm with two gem encrusted champagne glasses appropriately named Cheers! The second collection is released at a later date than the rest as it leads us into the Christmas mayhem that is late November. In the US the 12 Days of Christmas collection will release a charm each day starting from the 4th November, although it’s unclear whether this will be promoted in the UK as well. Included in this collection are a number of potentials for Christmas presents including the well received Winter Wisp; a charm with waves of elegant gems. The seasonal fun charms will be just as popular. The cheaper Candy Cane brings in the Christmas cheer with a red and white striped dangle as does the Winter Mittens, at a slightly higher price. The jumping Reindeer dangle is a simple silver charm at the lower end of the price range that will fit with any previously purchased charms. An equally simple yet elegant clip is the Perfect Gift which is a simple bow, a good buy because it doesn’t just lend itself to the seasonal theme. The more colourful charms are St. Nick (obviously red, white and silver) and a sparkly gem adorned Tree of Lights.

Within Pandora’s Winter Wonderland there are lots of gems used but also a running trend of spots of gold throughout the collections. Carousel, Winter Wonderland clip and Dashing Through the Snow all feature this touch of class. If you already have dainty charms and are looking for chunky clips for a unique mixture, the Pine Cone or already clear favourite Snowflake are bigger accessories.

It is rumoured Pandora will create a gift set out of the 12 Days of Christmas collection, so whether you are buying as gift for others, or gifts for yourself, keep a look out for this promotion!
