Advent Calendar Day 18 – Pandora Christmas Sleigh (Pandora Christmas 2013 Reviews)

Throughout December my blog has adopted a typically festive flavour as I’ve been reviewing the best of the Christmas charms from my favourite brands. This Pandora jewellery blog brings a dedicated review of the new Pandora Christmas Sleigh, part of the Christmas 2013 collection.

The Pandora Christmas 2013 collection is super cute. Everything from traditional duo-tone to pavé and vibrant enamel designs are accounted for. For 2013 we saw a new Pandora Christmas Sleigh charm, an updated version of the Pandora Silver and Garnet Sleigh.

What follows is a dedicated review.

Pandora Christmas Sleigh

This is a highly detailed charm and is a wonderful example of the increasing quality seen from Pandora over the last year. From the front the charm looks like a typical sleigh design. A profile view shows some beautiful details however. Included is a miniature version of the limited edition Pandora Bear My Heart charm from earlier in 2013.

For the showcase bracelet, I wanted to embrace the whole idea of Santa Claus. I tried to think of the things I associate with Santa Claus; presents, a sleigh, reindeer, Christmas Trees, elves and the North Pole. With this in mind silver beads were selected to try and reflect these themes. Included is the Redbalifrog Caribou Reindeer and Santa’s Sack, the Ohm Beads Gift Box, Pandora Black Friday 2012 charm and Pavé Christmas Tree and finally the super cute Novobeads Stocking. The colour scheme is traditionally festive reds and greens.

Pandora Christmas Sleigh Summary

This is an adorable charm. I tend to shy away from charms that feature human faces, such as the new Pandora Santa Claus so this is a fabulously festive option. The detailing on the charm is exquisite and the tiny gold heart just adds a touch of opulence to the design.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Pandora Christmas Sleigh charm? Have you indulged in this design or is it on your wishlist? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Very festive looking bracelet!

    You know I never bought any of the Christmas 13 TB glass. I might regret that but I have enough of last years release to get me through.

    Going to order the Ohm Hot Chocolate glass. Your pictures of this bead as well as one that someone posted on your page convinced me that it is a must. I am waiting for the Ohm snowflake which won’t arrive until after the holidays but since Winter goes until the end of March and longer here I think it is a good purchase.

    Got to say that even though I adore RBF their Caribou Reindeer is sort of creepy looking. It reminds me of something you’d see hanging up in a hunter’s lodge.

    Thanks for all your great ideas.

      Hi Tracey,

      You aren’t the only one who has found the Redbalifrog Caribou creepy – a few ladies have posted the same thing. I think of him as peering over a stable door but it’s just a different perspective and I seem to be in the minority.

      The Ohm Beads Hot Chocolate is a lovely bead. I’d actually love multiples of it but that’s just not meant to be!

      As for the limited edition glass from Trollbeads this year.. a couple are actually selling out which I’m shocked about. It seems the beads with the silver inclusions (Love Sparkle and Elegant Sparkle are the ones to prioritise should you decide to indulge. They’re the two vanishing!)

      It’s very chilly in Denmark today so I’ll send you warming thoughts for a lovely Christmas 🙂
