PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection
Celestial beauty is one of the main inspirations for the upcoming PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection and star bursts and crescent shapes feature in many of the pieces of jewellery. Winter frost and icicles also decorate many charms in the collection with dashes of cool blue highlights. Plus Bella Bot has a couple of new friends to play with!
Please note that the prices in the post are in Australian Dollars. Once I have information on other countries/currencies I will update this post.
PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection Bracelets
PANDORA Silver Moments Bangle with Star Clasp (597534NCBMX)
No, you are not suffering from déjà vu… you have seen this star design before! The new Moments Bangle with Star Clasp look almost identical to the Bright Star Charm (796379NSBMX) from the PANDORA 2017 Winter Collection. Almost but not quite, as when I compared the two I noticed a few differences. The Bright Star Charm comprises of six bezel set stones in various shades of blue. All six stones are the same size and five are placed at each star point. However the new Bangle features icy green, blue and clear bulbous crystals scattered in a random design.
Limited Edition PANDORA Moments Bangle with Fireworks Clasp (597563CZ)
You might experience another ‘Haven’t I seen that before?’ moment with the new Fireworks Clasp Bangle. The encrusted clasp is reminiscent of the Ice Crystal Charm (791764CZ) from the 2015 Winter Collection. Rather than a symmetrical ice design the Fireworks Clasp Bangle resembles a sudden burst of bright lights. With thoughts of the new year soon approaching, the Fireworks Bangle is engraved with the message ‘The best is yet to come’. I haven’t heard anything officially yet but I am presuming that the Fireworks Clasp Bangle with be part of the Winter FREE Bracelet promotion.
PANDORA Glacial Beauty Sliding Bracelet (597558CZ)
The cool Glacial Beauty theme is one of the main designs in the Winter 2018 Collection. This chillingly beautiful pattern looks especially elegant on the Glacial Beauty Sliding Bracelet which would be perfect for the party season. It’s sliding clasp allows it to be adjusted it to suit your wrist size. Available in two sizes: 23cm and 25cm.
PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection Charms
PANDORA Ice Sculpture Spacer Charm (797529CZ)
Also part of the Glacial Beauty collection is this sleek spacer filed with dazzling chiselled features! The clear cubic zirconia stones alternate between baguette-cut and round brilliant-cut to provide additional interest.
PANDORA Blue Ice Sculpture Spacer Charm (797529NSBL)
The slender Ice Sculpture Spacer Charm is also available in a stunning shade of blue with eye-catching sea blue crystals.
PANDORA Chiselled Elegance Charm (797746CZ)
Shards of sparkling ice fuse and combine to form the cool glistening ball with a mixture of baguette-cut and round brilliant-cut cubic zirconia stones. The sharp edges of the stones give this charm a slightly dangerous feel and it would look wonderful paired with the new PANDORA Disney Villains charms!
PANDORA Blue Chiselled Elegance Charm (797746NSBL)
As with the matching spacer charms, we also have a pretty blue version of the Chiselled Elegance Charm.
PANDORA Cerise Dazzling Snowflake Charm (797555NCC)
The Cerise Dazzling Snowflake Charm is very similar to the Twilight Blue Dazzling Snowflake Charm from the 2017 Winter Collection. At first I thought that other than the colour difference the two charms were identical but the snowflake motif is not the same. The Cerise version features an embossed snowflake with subtle oxidisation whereas the snowflake on the Twilight Blue charm is heavily pavéd. I actually prefer the newer charm as it is more obvious that it is a snowflake! Both charms would look absolutely stunning paired together on a PANDORA Rose Bracelet.
PANDORA Sparkling Night Blue Love Charm (797608NANB)
There is a new version Sparkling Love charm with a gorgeous night blue crystal heart! My favourite version of this charm is still the PANDORA Rose with a glistening pink heart.
PANDORA Ice Carving Hanging Charm (797553CZ)
A mini icy wreath hangs in front of a smooth silver disc that is engraved with the message ‘You melt my heart’ and a tiny cut-out. I’m really loving the baguette-cut stones that feature heavily in this collection, they’re just perfect for a wintry bracelet theme.
PANDORA Heart Melter Murano Glass Charm (797515)
When I first saw the preview image of this charm I thought it was silver with enamel details. I was delighted when I discovered that it is in fact an adorable Murano charm! The Heart Melter charm is shaped like a cube of ice and is PANDORA’s first-ever square Murano glass and I’m sure will be incredibly popular. This cool little chap has fun expression and a unique twinkle in his eye that glows from both sides. He has already melted my heart and will be on my wish list!
PANDORA Dazzling Wishes Hanging Charm (797531CZ)
This two part dangle charm features a firework motif with pretty beading detail that hangs in front of a gorgeous midnight blue enamel disc. The enamel is filled with a shimmering glitter which resembles countless stars in a galaxy. The reverse of the charm is engraved with the message, ‘The best is yet to come’.
PANDORA Dazzling Fireworks Charm (797518NCB)
A mixture of clear cubic zirconia and royal blue crystals create this firework burst. The sparkling blue crystals will look wonderful paired with some of the Winter 2017 Charms such as the Royal Blue Galaxy and Wintry Delight Charms.
PANDORA Bobby Bot Dog Charm (797551EN12)
The PANDORA Winter 2018 Collection includes a new member to the PANDORA Family… Bella Bot’s pet dog, Bobby Bot! Like the charming Bella, Bobby Bot has movable moving legs plus his ears flap too! As well as a large heart on his chest Bobby also has a tiny white enamel heart nose! Even though I’m a cat person Bobby will be walking home with me in November. Hopefully PANDORA will also produce a little cat bot too. Any ideas on what name they could give it?
PANDORA Cosmo Tommy Astronaut Charm (797561CZ)
The other new PANDORA Friend is Cosmo Tommy! He is ready to carry Bella and Bobby off into space to explore the galaxy! Tommy’s extra large astronaut helmet reminds me of the Auggie from the fantastic book and film Wonder. If you haven’t read or watched it yet I full recommend it. As a huge fan of the HitchHiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series this is another must have charm for me.
PANDORA Planet of Love Charm (797748EN23)
The new Planer of Love charm would make an ideal pairing for Cosmo Tommy! With it’s charm thread placed at an angle this fun charm with spin in a interesting fashion on your bracelet. Silver and white enamel details add to the cosmic vibe!
PANDORA Personal Galaxy Saftey Chain (797512CZ)
This rather pretty safety chain features a trail of sparkling stones and a single falling star and crescent moon at either end. This cosmic styling is the perfect finishing touch to a star themed bracelet. As I have mentioned before I don’t often wear a safety chain on my bracelets (I can hear your collective gasp from here!) but this is a wonderful option.
PANDORA Santa in Space Charm (797511ENMX)
Continuing the astronaut and space theme we have a new Santa charm in a space shuttle instead of a sleigh. Hand painted red and white enamel along with a twinkling star decorate the silver charm.
PANDORA Cosy Christmas House Pendant Charm (797517EN27)
A picture-perfect Christmas scene comes alive on this beautifully detailed dangle in sterling silver. A red enamel cottage, a festive wreath over the door, a tree in the lounge, a touch of sparkle; everything is ready for Santa and fun.
PANDORA Christmas Train Charm (797519EN27)
This is a collection of firsts as we also have PANDORA’s first-ever two-part charm! The front part of the train links up with a carriage packed with Venetian red enamel presents, moving it in the right direction.
PANDORA Warm Cocoa Charm (797523ENMX)
A nice warm cup of cocoa is my third favourite hot beverage, after tea and coffee of course! This hot cocoa looks positively scummy topped with lashings of whipped cream, drops of marshmallows and an enamel candy cane! The silver mug also features a sweet red enamel heart.
PANDORA Perfect Christmas Hanging Charm (797562EN12)
This sterling silver dangle conveys a perfect enamel snow scene with friends and a star sparkling above. A secret message lies underneath: ‘It’s not what’s under the tree that matters’ finished with ‘It’s who’s gathered around it’ on the back.
PANDORA Christmas Bear Charm (797564ENMX)
A happy and content teddy bear is enjoying his hot cocoa. His cosy little outfit is hand-painted in red and white enamel. Take time out with him.
PANDORA Merry Christmas Charm (797524EN16)
As round as a snowball with a diamond-pointed texture like new-fallen snow, this sterling silver charm expresses a festive Christmas message written in enamel.
PANDORA Nossa Senhora Aparecida Charm (797542EN170)
Nossa Senhora Aparacida is an image that is widely venerated by Brazilian Catholics, who consider her as the principal patroness of Brazil. As such it is possible that this charm will be a Brazil exclusive.
PANDORA New York Radio City Hall Charm (797549ENMX)
PANDORA were the 2017 jewellery sponsors for the Rockettes at Radio City Hall and as such released a special Ornament charm and gift set. The charm was released globally but the gorgeous red ornament gift was only available in the US. I haven’t heard any official details yet on the PANDORA 2018 Black Friday charm but it does seem possible that this is it! The striking button style charm features red and green translucent enamel and is engraved with ‘RADIO CITY’ and ‘Music Hall’.
PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection Necklaces & Pendants
PANDORA Luminous Ice Pendant (397543CZ)
This ice theme continues with the Luminous Ice Pendant which resembles a glamorous, elongated cube of ice! This oblong shaped pendant is quite simple yet it’s overall design has a charming classic air.
PANDORA Shards of Sparkle Necklace (397546CZ)
This frosty pendant almost looks like a twinkling gateway into a secret world! Delicate cubes of ice create a intriguing wreath shape that is full of texture and would look amazing glistening in the sunlight. The 45cm necklace chain sits perfectly on the collarbone.
PANDORA Moon & Stars Necklace (397537CZ)
A beautiful glittering night sky design decorates this beautiful globe shaped pendant and the tiny stars remind me of the magical PANDORA Disney Cinderella’s Dream charm. Open the smooth sphere to reveal a sweet secret message, ‘Love you to the moon and back’. Inside the locket there is also a small space which could be used to store a lock of hair from your loved one! A sliding ball chain allows you to adjust the length to suit your individual style. The pretty beaded chain measures 60cm at it’s longest length.
PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection Rings
PANDORA Shards of Sparkle Ring (197527CZ)
Drops of icy brilliance meet chiselled rectangular facets on this sterling silver open ring. The cubic zirconia twinkle to one another across the lines of the design.
PANDORA Luminous Ice Ring (197541CZ)
Rectangular facets of baguette-cut cubic zirconia bring an abstract, icy twist to the classic solitaire ring. Crafted from sterling silver, with glittering stones set for you to sparkle. This simple design of this ring is incredible chic, I just wish it was diamonds!
PANDORA Glacial Beauty Ring (197744CZ)
Baguette-cut stones sit at unique angles on this sterling silver eternity ring, mirroring a running current of water, that has been beautifully frozen in time. The effect will be dazzling as light reflects across the multiple facets!
PANDORA 2018 Winter Collection Earrings
PANDORA Lunar Light Earring Studs (297569CZ)
A subtle crescent moon shape provides interest to these sparkling stud earrings set with clear cubic zirconia stones. This pretty design mirrors the line of your earlobes in a graceful style. As someone who has always favoured dainty stud earrings over the chandelier look I am quite tempted by this pair!
PANDORA Luminous Ice Stud Earrings (297567CZ)
This dainty pair of studs would be perfect anytime, anywhere and any occasion! The charming baguette-cut stones create a bedazzling effect!
PANDORA Glacial Beauty Earrings (297545CZ)
These elegant circular sterling silver earrings are sure to gather compliments with their beautiful rays of light. Gleaming cubic zirconia in varying sizes create mimi the bursts and reflections of a firework display.
