PANDORA Awards 2018

PANDORA Awards 2018

Welcome to the inaugural PANDORA Awards sponsored by theartofpandora.com. We hope you enjoyed the canapés and bubbly as you arrived and have a good time for the rest of the evening!

It has been a special year for PANDORA and while there was not much of what we might refer to as ‘Classic Pandora’, many of the release drops have been bold, innovative and filled with beautiful designs. While I would definitely like to see a return of two-tone designs, classic designs and new 14k gold charms, I feel that 2018 was a big improvement on some of the tacky charms released in 2017.

The PANDORA Awards provide an opportunity to look back and acclaim some of the beautiful pieces over the year. Although I like all the items I reviewed on the artofpandora.com, those that have won awards have surpassed expectations!

Of course my opinion is subjective and I would love to read your views on your favourites items from 2018. Share your ideas in the comments below and we can have a mini after party together!

2018 Best New Range

Winner: PANDORA Shine
Runner Up: PANDORA Reflexions

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

The release of PANDORA Shine in 2018 was a big surprise! Although many 14k Gold collectors were irked at the concept of a cheaper, plated product, I appreciate the choice of being able to own gold PANDORA at an affordable price. Plus the first release of the new range was gorgeous and the bee theme was perfect for Spring inspired bracelets.

The second new range was the PANDORA Reflexions range. I think this new approach to PANDORA is quite interesting, despite not purchasing a PANDORA Reflexions bracelet yet. I recently purchased some Disney Petite charms and am planning on wearing them inside the Locket Clip on the Reflexions bracelet.

2018 Best Bracelet

Winner: PANDORA Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet
Runner Up: PANDORA Moments Sliding Silver Bracelet

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

My favourite bracelet from 2018 was the Moments Sliding Leather Bracelet. I especially appreciate its casual and easy to ware style. The Runner Up award goes to the Moments Silver Sliding Bracelet which is charming worn dressed up or down.

2018 Biggest Surprise

Winner: PANDORA Bella Bot Charms
Runner Up: PANDORA Cosmo Tommy Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

This year has been filled with lots of surprises from PANDORA! However, the Biggest Surprise Award goes to the Silver and PANDORA Rose Bella Bot charms because they were the leaders of both the PANDORA Friends group and the idea that we could have quirky characters on our bracelets and still be a grown up. Excitingly, the PANDORA 2019 Valentine’s Day Collection will include Rob Bot, Bella’s cute boyfriend!

My Runner Up award goes to the fun PANDORA Cosmo Tommy charm. Another new character for the PANDORA Friends range, Cosmo Tommy is a sweet charm which looks awesome on bracelets and necklaces.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Disney Charm

Winner: Disney Mickey & Minnie Vintage Car Charm
Runner Up: Disney Figaro Portrait Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

This has been a wonderful year for the PANDORA Disney range and I must admit my Disney collection has grown quite a bit! PANDORA has helped rekindle my love for Disney films and inspired my first trip to Walt Disney World. Often I re-watch Disney films as part of my research for my PANDORA Disney reviews. After watching Disney’s Bambi I was inspired to write a review with four bracelet styles based on the four seasons in the film.

The award for Best Disney Charm goes to the Mickey & Minnie Vintage Car charm. It is a super cute charm which is reminiscent of the original Walt Disney films. Plus with Minnie snuggling next to Mickey in the passenger seat it has a lovely romantic sentiment too.

In Runner Up is the adorable Figaro Portrait Charm. Despite being a mad cat lady this is my first PANDORA cat charm as none of the other options have ever appealed to me. In fact some look like rabbits! For me the Figaro Portrait Charm this is the best cat charm PANDORA have ever produced.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Murano

Winner: PANDORA Rose Iridescent White Murano
Runner Up: PANDORA Enchanted Garden Murano

I absolutely love PANDORA Murano charms which often have incredible craftsmanship and are ideal for adding a dash of colour to a bracelet. The Best Murano Award for 2018 goes to the gorgeous PANDORA Rose Iridescent White Glass Murano. This delightful glass charm was also PANDORAs first use of a decorated core and it is absolute perfection!

The Enchanted Garden Murano charm receives the Runner Up prize. Its miniature garden scene is beautiful and filled with detail. Plus the mix of colours used in the charm make it very versatile.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Spring Charm

Winner: PANDORA Enchanted Teapot Charm
Runner Up: PANDORA Promise of Spring Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

The Spring Collection is often the most eagerly anticipated collection of the year and normally my personal favourite. As a tea addict the splendid PANDORA Enchanted Teapot charm was a must have and wins the 2018 Best Spring Charm award.

Another gorgeous charm from the Spring Collection is the pretty Promise of Spring charm which takes the Runner Up prize. The words ‘love’ and ‘life’ are set into this beautifully design heart charm complete with spring flowers and a delicate dragonfly.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Summer Charm

Winner: Multi-colour Mosaic Charm
1st Runner Up: Ferris Wheel

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

This years Summer Collection was filled with festivals fun and boho chic inspiration. Despite not liking everything in the collection there were some lovely charms which have found a role in my collection. Especially the delightful Multi-coloured Mosaic charm which wins the award in this category.

The Runner Up prize for 2018 Best Summer Charm goes to the colourful Ferris Wheel charm. Again it is another interesting and original design from PANDORA which is ideal for Summer stylings and looks great paired with Disney charms too.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Autumn Charm

Winner: PANDORA Keys of Love Pendant Charm
Runner Up: PANDORA Free as a Bird Pendant Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

Part of this years Autumn collection was themed Regal Collection and included a romantic mix of locks and keys imagery. PANDORA also produced some beautiful store decorations in keeping with this theme including stylist notebooks embossed with an attractive key motif.

I was really impressed by the pretty Keys of Love Pendant Charm which wins the 2018 Best Autumn Charm award. As the charm dangles, the four keys hang in line to spell the word ‘love’.

The wonderful Free as a Bird Pendant Charm is a close Runner Up. I particularly love how the cage can be opened to free the little bird inside.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Winter Charm

Winner: PANDORA Cosmo Tommy Charm
Runner Up: PANDORA Bobby Bot Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

The new PANDORA Friend charms were my highlight from the 2018 Winter Collection as I don’t collect Christmas charms. Hence the fun Cosmo Tommy charm wins the 2018 Best Winter Charm award. He is a splendid addition to the PANDORA Friends range and I am looking forward to seeing what new friends we will have in 2019.

If only Bobby Bot was a cat he would be perrrrrfect! But this little dog bot is incredibly cute with his little flapping ears and fully deserves the Runner Up spot. The Bobby Bot Charm review will be coming soon so watch this space!

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Classic PANDORA

Winner: PANDORA Mary Poppins Bag Charm
Runner Up: PANDORA Spring Bird House Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

What is Classic PANDORA? Maybe it depends when you started collecting or what first drew you to PANDORA. As it is a personal definition, I hold to my own view of ‘Classic PANDORA’ when it comes to the presentation of this award: Charms which stand the test of time and are not influenced by the lastest fashions or trends. Timeless themes coupled with fine detailing using techniques such as oxidisation, two-tone highlights or precious gem stones.

In my opinion the fantastic Disney Mary Poppins’ Bag was the best example of this in 2018 and receives the Best Classic PANDORA Award. This luscious carpet bag charm is another example of a classic design with just the right amount of oxidisation to enhances the charms detail. A close Runner Up is the charming Spring Bird House which is reminiscent of older PANDORA styles.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Disney Parks Charm

Winner: Disney Parks Topiary Mickey Charm
Runner Up: Disney Parks World of Disney Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

PANDORA’s relationship with Disney continues to grow. In fact when I visited Magic Kingdom a few months ago I was delighted to see that the Happily Every After firework show was sponsored by PANDORA. The PANDORA Disney Parks charms are unique in that they are only available either within the Disney Park or online at ShopDisney.com.

This years Best Disney Parks award goes to the gorgeous Topiary Mickey Charm which I bought as a souvenir from my trip to the Epcot Park at Florida. Grassy green enamel highlights the flowers and leaves on this cute charm which is specifically designed for the Epcot Garden Festival. Taking the Runner Up prize is the PANDORA Disney Parks World of Disney charm. Each of the Disney Parks is represented with a black dot on the blue globe and this charm illustrates my goal to visit each Park!

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Safety Chain

Winner: PANDORA Disney Climbing Mickey Safety Chain
Runner Up: PANDORA Personal Galaxy Safety Chain

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

I have to admit that Safety chains are not something that I normally ware! Shock horror! Although I do like to use them from time to time and often use them as a decorative element. The PANDORA Disney Climbing Mickey Safety Chain caught my eye with the sweet Mickey figure climbing up the chain. This fun Safety Chain deserves the Best Safety Chain award for 2018.

In the Runner Up spot is the pretty Personal Galaxy Safety Chain. I have especially enjoyed styling this heavenly beauty with Cosmo Tommy. They look perfect together!

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Pendant

Winner: PANDORA Rose Family Roots Pendant
Runner Up: PANDORA Tree of Love Pendant

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

I love PANDORA Pendants for their versatility and the ability to wear them on either a necklace or a bracelet. The 2018 Best Pendant award goes to stunning PANDORA Rose Family Roots Pendant charm. The finely crafted filigree tree is a wonderful illustration to the most important story. Our family.

A similar theme is found in our Runner Up, the sweet Tree of Love Pendant. Each of the trees leaves are formed out of tiny love hearts in pink and red enamel.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Best Spacer

Winner: PANDORA Rose Two Hearts Spacer
Runner Up: Disney Seven Dwarves All Around Spacer

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

Spacers are maybe the forgotten gems in the ever expanding universe of PANDORA, but they serve a valuable purpose and warrant a place in our collections and on our bracelets. 

This years winner of the Best Spacer award is the delightful PANDORA Rose Two Hearts Spacer charm. Despite only being released in the 2018 Valentine’s Day collection, this gorgeous spacer has already been retired. Be sure to look out for opportunities to buy it in the sale before it is gone for good.

In Runner Up position is the super cute Disney Seven Dwarves All Around Spacer. It is actually quite a wide spacer and almost the width of a standard charm. Look out for the upcoming review soon.

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

2018 Most Collectable

Winner: Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Pendant
Runner Up: PANDORA 2018 Club Charm

pandora awards 2018 2019 valentines day collection CNY shine pandora blog blogger sale promo gwp

What is more collectible that the Mouse that started it all? Disney has spent the year building up to the 90th anniversary of this special mouse. PANDORA joined in the celebrations with the splendid Limited Edition Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Pendant, which wins the Most Collectable award for 2018.

The PANDORA 2018 Club Charm receives the Runner Up prize for this award. I only have two of the PANDORA Club charms but many fans have collectected them all.

Wow o wow, that was an incredible read! I agree with many of your picks for 2018.

One of my personal favourites for 2018 was the Baloon and Teddy Bear charm, such a pretty cute charm.

I also liked Autumn’s Shine scarecrow. That was so nice.

I agree on Classic Pandora, I would like to see a return to some of the “classic”styles.

Thanks for the lovely article

Patricia

Hi Patricia,
Thank you for your kind comment, I’m so glad you enjoyed the Award Ceremony! I really like the Balloon & Teddy charm too and the little bear reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. I was thinking about getting the Balloon & Mouse charm but there are too many other things that have over taken it on my wish list. Plus I am still trying to locate the Tinker Bell Murano charms in one of the sales.
Hopefully we will see some more ‘Classic PANDORA’ in the new year smile
Thanks again for commenting and have a wonderful day,
Dora 💖

Definitely some great charms that Made the cut. I was surprised the lavender spring bee murano didn’t win for best murano however I am happy the leather bracelets made the cut as I always thought they did leather and colorful bracelets best over all the bead brands. Excited to see Vday preview 💗💗

Hi Alex, Interestingly the Enchanted Garden Murano was very nearly the winner for 2018 Best Murano but the PANDORA Rose Iridescent White Glass Murano stole it in the end! Although the actual glass work on the Enchanted Garden is gorgeous I was happy to see PANDORA create a fresh approach to the core design on the Iridescent Glass. I am interested to see what else lies ahead for Murano charms in 2019. I have already heard rumour that there will be a matt glass Murano! Check back later in the day for the Valentine’s preview 😘 Thanks for commenting and… Read more »

I loved so much this year! I went crazy with the spring and autumn collection. I think my favourited are the pasta charm, bruno and the free as a bird dangle. I already have seen some images of the valentines collection 2019 but thats never my favourite but the images i have seen of the new wishbone collection are breathtaking so nice they do a Pre-spring collection.I hope Pandora continue the good work of last year and surpise us with nice and suprising designs. I hope for more flowers an fairy charms and a catbot! One thing i din’t like… Read more »

Hi Manon,
Bruno is a awesome charm and I use him a lot in my bracelet stylings. I just love his chunky feet with the little hearts.
A Cat Bot would be amazing. What do you think it should be called? I agree about the Wishbone range, it is very pretty and has a nice clean look. However I don’t think there is much in the Valentine’s Day Collection that will be making it to my wish list. Check back later today for the preview 😘

I so enjoyed reading your Pandora 2018 round up of all the top pieces they came out with!!! Your top picks and runner ups were all pretty much the same as what I would have picked!

And can I just say: you take the best photos! That Bella Bot one is adorable!!!!

Thank you for a wonderful 2018 and I cannot wait to see what you have in-store for us in 2019, Dora!!!

Hi Emily,

I would like to see more charms Similar to the 2016 Valentine’s Spring Summer and Fall Collection. Thst was the year that I fell in love with Pandora couldn’t stop thinking about it every second. Lately Pandora is not wowing me. Nothing eye catching. I like my bracelets to stand out and pop. Pandora needs more color to add to the bracelets. Some deep pinks and blues and purples. Just a suggestion.

Hi Laura, Thanks for your comment and sharing your view. I do know that PANDORA reads this blog and so it is always worth mentioning what you would like to see them produce. You never know, they might listen. That is why I am always saying that I would like to see them bring back real gem stones and more two tone designs! Hopefully you will be pleased with the upcoming Valentine’s Day Collection as it features some bright reds and pink shades. Check back later today to see our preview of it 😘 Thanks again for commenting and have… Read more »

Hi Janine,
The Iridescent Murano is really lovely. I am excited to see what new Murano charms PANDORA produce in 2019. The matt glass is particularly interesting and I have always admired the matt Murano charms from other brands.

Hi Dora, I hope you had an incredible Christmas, I love your awards, for me the best charm of all is Bruno the unicorn🦄, I love that charm, and lots of people too, I remember to see IG full of photos of Bruno, and I had a many difficults trying to find it because everyone wants to purchase him, and it becomes sold very soon in many stores, including the 4 concept stores in my country and some in Florida. So for me he is the winner!!! About the critics, I agree with another comment, really miss the previews of… Read more »

What a great read! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your compilation of Pandora pieces that made 2018 memorable. I’ve indulged in many of the same pieces you’ve reviewed and I agree that Pandora has done a great job designing unique charms and bracelets. My favourite collection is also Spring and I hope there will be some beautifully detailed muranos like the enchanted garden glass next year. I also love character charms from Disney and Bella Bot and her friend Cosmo Tommy. I saw a leaked image of a two tone koi fish for Lunar New Year and I hope it swims… Read more »

Hi ipinkiloveyou, Thank you for your lovely comment. I am so happy you enjoyed the 2018 PANDORA Award ceremony! Other than all my Disney purchases Spring was collection that I spend the most on. I especially liked the fact there were lots of plain silver charms like the Enchanted Hearts Tassel and Promise of Spring charm. The Good Fortune Carp is an interesting design and I think it will be very popular. I believe that it will only be available in select countries though as it is a Chinese New Year charm. However if you are interested in purchasing one,… Read more »

Dora, will you be posting previews for the Lunar New Year charm(s) and the upcoming Valentine’s Day charms??? I am so much looking forward to previews of those collections!

It seems like there are fewer & fewer bloggers doing previews these days, and they really do help us buyers choose in advance what we would like to purchase; as well as being a feast for the eyes & just plain fun. ^_^

A Stellar Roundup. I have collected many of the favorites this year. I am in agreement that I so miss the previews which help me wish and dream and plan for an updated bracelet or a brand new design.I don’t think Pandora understands this. It’s not just simply buying a jewelry piece but you are actually creating a unique design to enhance your life.

Veronica
Veronica

“It’s not just simply buying a jewelry piece but you are actually creating a unique design to enhance your life.” Very well said! I couldn’t have put it better myself! That’s the essence of Pandora for me, and what drew me to their charm bracelets in the first place. <3

Dora
Dora

It is a lovely sentiment. I saw one PANDORA fan describe herself and her PANDORA collection as a visual storyteller, which I also like. 😊

Such a good way of putting the essence of collecting jewellery in a phrase! That is exactly what I mean with my bracelets, they are unique to everyone of us, and each design is different, but still yours!
Thank you!

Dora, I really loved the way you turned the review of 2018 into an awards ceremony! I am not a super collector myself so cannot hope to be buying lots of charms from each release, but am going to take some time to go back and read some of the reviews I missed from 2018.

Looking forward to your reviews in 2019.

Hi Alyssa,
Thank you for your lovely comment. I am so glad you find the reviews helpful in deciding what pieces to buy. That is why I try to show a variety of styles to help readers think about how the specific charm could fit into their personal collection. I still have a few charms left from 2018 to review including Bobby Bot, Seven Dwarves All Around Spacer, Snow White’s Bird and Shimmering Steamboat Willie, so watch this space!

Hi Orla,
Yes, I have recently updated my commenting system so it looks a little different but hopefully will be more useful as well as easier to use. There will be a preview for the 2019 Valentine’s Day collection later today including the new Rob Bot charm 😘

I did like more charms this year than last, even though I didn’t buy a lot of the new collections. I did purchase 2 leather bracelets, orange and teal, to make an summer and Australia themed bracelet.
And I bought a LOT of Essence!!
I’m hoping they will continue the line, and add more charms and bracelets, they are so reminiscent of the older Pandora!

Hi Marikaisa,
The new Leather Bracelets were really lovely and I was surprised to see the Orange one in the sale as I know a lot of fans bought that one. The Leather bracelets are also a great way to add a splash of colour in a bracelet stack. I am also hoping to see more classic styled PANDORA in 2019.

Excellent awards and recap of the year!
I’m not a huge fan of the intense yellow of the shine collection but I love some pieces like the yellow shine muranos and the honey charms. I do own a reflections bracelet and absolutely adore it!
My favs for this year are also the new characters. Cosmo Tommy or Bruno… I hope Pandora bring more during 2019 and I hope they re-take more of the classic style!

Hi Patricia, The PANDORA Shine is very bright. If I wear my Shine charms with the couple of 14k gold charms that I have I make sure to have silver charms between them and then I think it works OK. The 14k gold and two tone charms are a lot nicer and slowly I am collection them from my wish list. Most of them are retired now so I see them every so often. Like you I would be delighted if PANDORA reintroduced that older style again. It wouldn’t mean they would have to stop newer things like PANDORA Shine… Read more »
