My Reflections on Reflexions

IN THE AUTUMN OF 2018 PANDORA RELEASED AN INTRIGUING NEW COLLECTION… REFLEXIONS

IT’S CONTEMPORARY STYLE AND CUSTOMISABLE CLIPS PIQUED PANDORA COLLECTORS ATTENTION.

DISCOVER MY REFLECTIONS ON PANDORA REFLEXIONS…

Okay, so I will be the first to admit it, I wasn’t particularly inspired at first glance of the PANDORA Reflexions Collection. However like music, it gradually grew on me with repeat exposure until my opinion changed.


Although initially curious about the PANDORA Reflexions Collection, I was underwhelmed with the official styling photography which made it appear a little dull and generic looking.

Additionally the debut Reflexions Collection only included a small selection of clips and their rather plain designs failed to captivate me.

The introductory Reflexions Collection contains; a smooth silver Heart Clip, an italic script Love Clip and the Sparkling Infinity Clip. Along with the pendant style Floating Heart Clip which incorporates a little dangling love heart. Plus the narrow Timeless Sparkle Clip which is similar to a Moments Spacer charm. There is also a Floating Safety Chain for the Reflexions bracelet.

Akin to the PANDORA Signature jewellery, the range also contained the Logo Clip, spelling PANDORA in a circle.

To appease cubic zirconia lovers, the collection launch included the Dazzling Elegance Clip in silver, PANDORA Rose and PANDORA Shine. The slightly more creative Crown Clip is also available in all three metals.

My personal favourites from the initial Reflexions Collection are the Locket Clip and the pretty PANDORA Rose Sweet Bow Clip.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.

Over the recent months the PANDORA Reflexions Collection has transformed beautifully, like a butterfly completing its metamorphosis.

Starting with the PANDORA Winter 2018 Collection, the Reflexions Collection began to both expand and improve. Charming new clips included the Sleek Star Clip available in silver, PANDORA Rose and PANDORA Shine and the rather fun Space Rocket Clip in PANDORA Rose.

As the Reflexions Collection continued to evolve and flourish my opinion also transformed. Testament to this, my favourite piece from the entire PANDORA Valentine’s Day 2019 Collection happened to the Reflexions Tree of Life Clip.

Life is only a reflection of what we allow ourselves to see – Trudy Symeonakis Vesotsky.

My love for PANDORA Reflexions burst into bloom with the release of the Spring 2019 Collection.

Highlights of the collection included the delightful PANDORA Rose Ladybird Clip with a delicate pink enamel and striking black crystal spots. The iconic PANDORA Shine Queen Bee also looks magnificent in clip form and suddenly the Reflexions Collection had become irresistible!

After careful consideration I decided to purchase the PANDORA Rose Reflexions Bracelet as I liked the pretty blush colour against my skin tone. I choose the stunning PANDORA Shine Queen Bee and PANDORA Shine Gleaming White Circle Clip which harmonised beautifully with the PANDORA Rose Ladybird Clip. The result is refreshingly elegant and surprisingly dainty.

Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different? C.S. Lewis

In the USA the PANDORA Rose Reflexions Bracelet is $175 and available from BeCharming.com.

The Ladybug Clip is $55, the Queen Bee Clip is $65 and the Gleaming White Circle Clip is $75.

In the UK the PANDORA Rose Reflexions Bracelet is £125 and available from the UK PANDORA eStore.

The Ladybird Clip is £45, the Queen Bee Clip is £55 and the Gleaming White Circle Clip is £60.

I also had to let Reflexions grow in me! It took me a minute to be able to appreciate it for what it is. Now I am very happy to have it in my collection and I too just added the ladybird!

Beautiful post by the way! I’m pretty interested in the 3 stranded bracelet – even though I told myself that I would only have one. Lol

Hey Nichol,

Thanks for passing by 😊 Yes, the Reflexions range takes a while to appreciate but they have a home in my heart now that I have had a play with them. I love to be able to get close with the camera and get some nice shots.

The multi stranded bracelet is very interesting. I always planned to do this post on Reflexions and I wasn’t sure it was going to behave so well for the photos. But, if the opportunity come to get one in the future, then I might just take it wink

Have a great day

I loved the look of the Reflexions Collection from the moment I saw the first pictures. I love my classic charm bracelets, but for my left arm I loved the cleaner contemporary style. It pairs beautifully with a watch. I bought all three colors of the bracelets, and I mix and match the metals. I love wearing the 3 stars on a bracelet with a necklace of all three modern Love Pod pendants dangling from it. I have been traveling a lot recently, so I didn’t get a chance to purchase clips from the Spring Collection yet, but I’m definitely… Read more »

Hi Deborah, Thanks for your lovely comment. I think you are maybe using it how PANDORA intended. Congrats, you are a true adherent I have not actually worn mine yet, since I was saving it for the photos and article first of all. I don’t have a fancy watch, just my Fitbit so am thinking I will use it as a low key alternative to my normal bracelet. I am not a big fan of stacking multiple bracelets — not because I think it looks bad — I just like a singular bracelet that doesn’t draw too much attention. The… Read more »

I am not a fan of the collection. The bracelets still remind me of watch bands. I have been collecting pandora for years and have a large collection but won’t be buying any reflexions. Also will not buy shine as I won’t pay that price for plated jewellery and the gold colouring is too yellow for me. But I realise it would be a boring old world if we all liked everything the same.

Hi Kathryn,

Thanks for your comment. I understand your viewpoint, it has taken me a while to invest in the Reflexions system. I wasn’t convinced at first. I agree that it look similar to a watch strap, but when I received mine I saw that it was more delicate and thin than most watch straps. That it why I included a photo of it on my wrist above, I don’t normally photograph bracelets on my wrist. Anyway, you are right – we don’t all like the same things and it is not at all like traditional PANDORA.

Have a great day

Beautiful photo’s, showing off your pretty charms and bracelet. I’m not sure on the original bracelet for this collection and actually prefer the look of the new one they released with the Spring collection. I think they are releasing some beautiful charms for it and look forward to seeing what else they release in this collection. I might eventually buy from this collection at some point in the future.

Hi Sarah, Thanks for your your kind words. I deliberated long and hard about which bracelet to get, it is obviously a personal choice and people will prefer different ones. I had actually ordered the multi-strand version but i changed my mind. It was a little bit to do with the charm that I chose and wanting to tie in the pink colours with the PANDORA Rose and a little bit because I saw a few live shots and the multi-strand looked a bit messy. But since then I have seen some more live shots and people seem to be… Read more »

Hi there. I also love Reflections. My only gripe is that the charms open easily and vanish off the bracelet. I have lost two charms in this way. The charms also dont stay where they should and slide around which looks odd. I have now resorted to glueing the charms in place with silicone. They dont fall off and dont travel. Not an ideal solution however.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for the comment, I am happy that you are enjoying your Reflexions too, it is a shame that you have lost a few. I have not worn mine out and about yet since I was saving them to photograph and wanted them with that newly purchased sparkle on them.

I will have to keep an eye on it and Weill defiantly be reporting if I think it is an issue,

Have a great evening,

I too lost a charm today -the ladybird- and been wondering what to do to avoid this and wondering about complaining about this to Pandora. Some clip more strongly than others.

Oh. Love the photos! They are so vivid and clear. Thanks for sharing, I don’t have a Reflexions bracelet yet but I am definitely thinking about it.

Keep up the good work with your blog Dora 😘

Hi Patricia,

Thanks for your nice comment. The Reflexions is nice, it is a different aspect of PANDORA that I was glad to explore. It complements my other bracelets well.

Have a great evening

Hi Alyssa,

Thanks for the kind comment, I am glad you like the pics. I try to do a slightly different style with the magazine features, less of a review and more of a stylised article.

The ladybird is my fave too arrow

That bracelet looks lovely arrow . I like pink and that looks so new and different. I do think that the bracelet looks like a watch strap but not in a bad way, I have a few bracelets and matching watches and I do always think about which watch looks best with the bracelet I’m wearing wink . I think Pandora missed a trick by not offering the bracelet as a GWP when they launched the range, I think more people would have got on board had they done that hmm .

Hi Pat, Yes the pink clips and very cute. The ladybird is what sold the concept to me, I loved it so much. I liked the Bee too and the other clip tied the other two together without being too fussy. I agree that it similar to a watch strap, but it is smaller and feels more delicate than a watch strap, but not in a bad way I think they will count me with incentives eventually. In the US they had a jewellery box GWP but UK had nothing buy three clips and get the bracelet free would be… Read more »

Yes, that would be nice arrow . 3 silver for the silver bracelet, 3 rose for the rose bracelet or 3 shine for the shine bracelet grin . I can’t decide which I want, I love the look of rose and white gold together so I think I’d want to do something with the rose and silver but I’m not sure what hmm .

Dora

Hi Pat,

What about mixing and matching hmm I deliberately went for Shine and Rose together to bring the two elements into one bracelet. I also purchased a Silver Locket charm in the recent UK 3 for 2 and will be able to add that to it as well. I had some petites but had no locket for it until now eek

Yes, I think that’s what I would do but I’m not sure which colour bracelet to go for . It’ll be a while before I recover from the 3 for 2 so plenty of time to think about it, lol , maybe even the next 3 for 2 which will probably be next year . What about the sizes of this style? It looks to me like it ought to be a snug fit rather than loose so I’m wondering if I should go down a size or two in this style . I go for a 20cm in moments… Read more »
