Pandora are planning a new bracelet concept for quarter four of 2013. This Pandora jewellery blog article brings Pandora Essence Collection news!
Last week I published the earliest snippets of information regarding the Pandora Essence Collection. It’s a new bracelet concept set to make it’s debut in either October or November of 2013. Details are incredibly scarce as Pandora have required both concept store employees and those working at larger independent retailers to sign non-disclosure agreements. Thanks to a lovely reader, we now have a few more details (thank you!)

Pandora Essence Collection
Rumours suggested the new Pandora Essence collection would feature a far slimmer bracelet concept. Due to this reduction in size, a new series of complementary charms are also debuting. The original range of charms will not be compatible with the essence bracelet system.
Initial speculation had suggested the bracelet similar in design to the Tiffany wire charm bracelet. This is apparently not the case as the new essence bracelet is indeed flexible and not a rigid bangle style. Indeed it’s believed that the bracelet is very similar to the existing Pandora bracelet, albeit far more slender.
The system is fully modular. That is to say charms can be added and removed from the bracelet unlike the Chlobo or Alex & Ani systems. In addition the beads do not move around on the chain, unlike most charm bracelets. This alone appeals to me as I get incredibly frustrated by wandering charms. The charms are apparently rubber lined to keep them in place. This alone is not a new concept as it’s already employed by Lovelinks. Obviously due to the decreased size, these charms will not be compatible with the existing Pandora bracelet.
The source believed the new concept would appeal to the more fashion conscious, making me even more excited for the new range. It was described as more youthful (but not specifically young) which brings hope for perhaps something a tad more contemporary from Pandora.
In regards to pricing, the new Pandora Essence bracelet is expected to retail at around $50 with charms costing between $30 and $55. Thanks to another reader a global release date of November the 4th has now been suggested.
In a last snippet of Pandora related news, I’ve also heard rumours that Chamilia have now lost their contract with Disney in favour of Pandora. If this proves correct we can likely expect official Disney branded Pandora charms in the future, certainly a common request on the Pandora Facebook page.
Finally please remember that everything featured here is based on rumour rather than fact. The Pandora Essence Collection is a very closely guarded secret at presence so please take all information here as speculation.
As always I love to hear from my readers. Do these latest details make you more excited for the Pandora Essence collection? Are you budgeting already for this release?
