Pandora Club Charm 2014 Sneak Peek

This Pandora jewellery blog article brings a sneak peek at the anticipated Pandora Club Charm 2014.

Last month I mentioned that rumours of a Pandora Club Charm for 2014 were circulating. The Pandora Club has been in existence for quite some time but hasn’t really provided any enormous benefits to it’s members. For 2014 however, Pandora are planning an exclusive Pandora Club Charm. Vouchers will be distributed via email enabling members to reclaim their charm (for a purchase price) at local concept stores. Initial glimpses of the charm were seen at the Russian preview shows for the Pandora Fall 2013 collection. Today brings a more detailed sneak peek.

Pandora Club Charm 2014

The basic design is of a Pandora jewellery box complete with the engraved and iconic text. The charm opens up to reveal a heart shaped detail boasting a focal diamond feature. The inside of the lid is marked with “Pandora Club 2014″.

The inclusion of a diamond, while exciting, was the focus of concern for many collectors as it was assumed the price would be prohibitive. On the promotional image above, supplied by Melanie Baer, the price is detailed at a reasonable €69. I’ll admit this does leave me wondering whether the rumours of the stone being a diamond are unsubstantiated as the retail price is more indicative of a cubic zirconia.

The image also details that the charm will be available from January 2014 which is likely to represent the first Pandora charm release of the new year. I’ll admit that I think the design is terribly cute and suspect it will be enormously popular among collectors, not simply due to it’s exclusivity. The fact the charm still carries a purchase cost likely means it will be available globally (as opposed to gift with purchase style promotions that are illegal in some regions.) I suspect this charm will look wonderful teamed with the new Pandora Shopping Bag charm from the fall 2013 collection.

    It is a cute charm, like a little store jewel box being opened to reveal its treasure. But I don’t like jewelry with name brands as part of the design or prominently displayed. I think you have to be a real Pandora fan to want that. The purse is adorable but I won’t be wanting it because it says Pandora on it. There are a couple other cute Pandora releases I have on my Christmas list instead.

      There are a few ladies that post here who hate very blatant branding. I don’t mind it but I can understand that it’s a real problem for some of you.

      I must admit I like this and I’d probably buy it assuming it comes to Denmark – I think the design is super cute with the reticulated lid :)

    I’m not sure about this one, I will have to see it in person. The lid looks like trouble to me, it could break or get struck on something and then broke the entire bracelet, beads could get lost. I would be so mad if that happens.

    I don’t mind the branding, they have several pieces with Pandora on it already, you could make a whole bracelet with just pieces that say “Pandora”. ;)

      You could be right – usually the first attempts at something a bit different and fiddly can end badly ;) Remember the tags on the Black Friday charm from 2012? And then Pandora fixing them in the All Wrapped Up in Pandora charm? ;)

      My BF charm generally sits in my jewellery box. Let’s hope this isn’t one that joins it ;)

    I love it and you can kind of see in the picture that it looks like it has a good catch on it after all lockets don’t fling open all the time otherwise no one would wear them and as for the branding I’m pleased that it says pandora on it after all it is to celebrate being a member of the pandora club. I never mix brands so it doesn’t worry me having it stamped on it , I’m very proud of my pandora collection and the moments the charms represent, and don’t feel worried about the branding I can’t wait until its released and hope its something they do annually

      Hi Kathrine,

      Welcome to my blog and thank you for commenting :)

      I feel much like you do in regards to branding – I rather like it. I do mix brands though predominantly my Pandora charms remain on their own dedicated bracelets. Given it’s stamped with a year, I have a feeling this is going to become an annual thing. If it was a one off I think they’d be more inclined to just stamp it with Pandora Club!

      Now I wonder how many people will be signing their boyfriends / husbands / kids upto the Pandora Club so they can get multiples of this charm ;)

      Kind Regards
      Victoria

        Definitely, I have told my 3 daughters who also collect pandora to sign up for themselves as they are only either young(13) or poor(18,20) I have asked them to join so perhaps I can give it as a gift for them at their birthdays, I wouldn’t be able to do this if they are not members

          Hi Kathrine :)

          Welcome to my blog and thank you for commenting. I think I need to sign my fiance up to at least give me the option of a second charm should I love the design when I physically see it. If would be awful if your daughters loved the design but couldn’t qualify for it!

          Kind Regards

    Hey y’all, I’m super duper excited about this A-dorable looking charm! :) My only minor complaint with it is that I think the outside of the charm is too plain. Kinda wish they would have made it look more to actually stand out on a bracelet. I agree, the hinged box is very cute and surprisingly in a good way different for Pandora! :)

    Yay! Cannot wait till January lol

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hi :)

      It’s certainly looking like a January global launch. Since they charm still has a purchase price, they’ve managed to avoid the problems with certain markets (Denmark included) not allowing gift with purchase style promotions.

      Honestly though the best source of “news” for this charm is going to be the Pandora Club emails I think ;)

      Kind Regards
      Victoria
