This Pandora jewellery blog article gathers together the snippets of information known about the upcoming Pandora Essence Collection, due for quarter four unveiling.
Early in 2013 Pandora registered a new trademark; Pandora Essence Collection. I remember it piquing my interest at the time but I’ll admit it soon slipped my mind. In recent weeks there have been rumours circulating as to a new concept set to debut from Pandora. Pandora are guarding this collection with the same secretive diligence as the X by Trollbeads line. Both concept store staff and many of those working at larger retail outlets have signed non-disclosure agreements, so needless to say information is scarce. Nevertheless what follows is a compilation of the current rumours surrounding the Pandora Essence Collection. Please keep in mind most of this information is hearsay at present due to the strict NDAs employed.

Pandora Essence Collection
Concept stores are expecting the unveiling of the Pandora Essence Collection to take place in October or November, making it perfectly positioned for the festive season. Some rumours suggest that independent retailers aren’t set to receive this collection until early 2014 but this is absolutely unconfirmed.
It seems likely this release encompasses a new bracelet concept with a much more slender design. It’s been suggested these bracelets are similar to the Tiffany’s wire bracelets (or indeed the Alex and Ani concept.)

Due to this it’s expected that existing Pandora charms will not be compatible with this new line. Rather in addition to the bracelet will come a new line of charms designed exclusively for the Pandora Essence concept.
The fact the line is unlikely to be compatible with existing Pandora charms will undoubtedly be a contentious issue among fans (much like the X by Trollbeads concept moving away from the beads will be.) That aside I’m incredibly enthusiastic to see something new from Pandora.
As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the initial snippets of information pertaining to the Pandora Essence Collection? Should this information prove correct, is it something that will interest you? Alternatively are you strongly against the suspected incompatibility between lines? Have you heard any rumours yourself regarding this new series? Hit the comments and let me know!
