This Pandora jewellery blog article offers an in depth review of the new limited edition Pandora Bear My Heart charm, part of the Mother’s Day 2013 collection.
The Pandora Mother’s Day 2013 collection features a stunning array of family themed charms. With family at the centre of many of our lives, there’s little wonder people choose to acknowledge and honour this on their Pandora charm bracelets.
Sunday the tenth represents Mothering Sunday in the UK. Over the weekend, I offered a showcase dedicated to the new Trollbeads Mother’s Day 2013 collection and throughout this week, I will be offering the same for the Pandora Mother’s Day 2013 release.
The highlight of the release in my eyes is the new limited edition Pandora Bear My Heart charm. This is a duo-tone charm boasting a cute teddy bear theme. It offers a little more versatility than much of this release, particularly for those collectors who aren’t a parent themselves.
Pandora Bear My Heart
As mentioned the Pandora Bear My Heart is a silver teddy bear charm with gold heart detailing on his it’s chest.
This isn’t the only teddy bear charm to be making it’s debut with the Pandora Mother’s Day 2013 collection. Indeed two other silver teddies have launched. The Pandora It’s a Girl and Pandora It’s a Boy charms feature delicate pastel enamel details making them a perfect representation of a new addition to the family (or indeed for expectant mothers.) The charms are identical in their core design and their sizing, with the differences lying in the details. The image below offers a comparison between the Pandora limited edition Bear My Heart and the new It’s a Boy charms.
The hallmark for the new Bear My Heart is subtly placed on the underneath rather than infringe on the charm’s design.
For the showcase bracelets I was keen to embrace a family theme with applicable silver charms. The initial bracelet boasts soft pink hues that are just perfect for Mother’s Day.
For the second bracelet I mixed in some pale blue glass beads making it ideal for those parents of both boys and girls.

Pandora Bear My Heart Summary
This little charm has created enormous confusion. With his limited edition status, collectors globally are desperate to acquire him yet he’s currently only available from UK retailers. To clarify, this is not a UK exclusive charm, rather he was released there first to coincide with their Mother’s Day celebrations. In regards to his limited edition status, the charm will only be available for a restricted period of time in each market. I’ve heard rumours that retailers were only able to place one order for this charm though I’ve yet to receive confirmation regarding this.
The charm itself is adorable. It’s a simple enough design but the splash of gold adds just a hint of opulence. I also feel it’s more versatile than the majority of the Pandora Mother’s Day 2013 collection. Obviously the release is highly themed with a target market in mind but for those of us that perhaps don’t quite fit into this, the new Pandora Bear My Heart will still make a welcome addition to many bracelets, themed or otherwise. For avid Pandora collectors, this will probably represent a “must have” due to it’s limited edition status.
As always I welcome comments from my readers. Does this charm appeal to you? Will you be buying it when it’s released in your market or indeed, have you already purchased it? Are you perhaps planning to gift it for Mother’s Day? Head to the comments and let me know your thoughts.
