With Pandora prone to releasing charms to certain regions earlier than their official debut date, collectors are constantly yearning for information pertaining to upcoming releases. This Pandora jewellery blog brings some early leaked images of the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 collection.
Last week saw Pottersgiving dominate Endangered Trolls and I had a wonderful time with the articles. Sadly it means a couple of new releases have been brushed aside. Rumours regarding the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 collection have been circulating for some time, as have a couple of early stock images. With Pandora so protective over leaked stocked images, I’ve been reluctant to even consider publishing those. Over the weekend however a couple of iphone images of the Valentine’s Day collection, taken from the 2014 brochure have appeared. Please note that all the images featured here are copyright of www.vk.com/pandora.
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014
Obviously a dedicated Valentine’s Day release is going to be typified by hearts and pink shades and this is absolutely true of this collection.
The image below shows the two new Pandora Sparkling Hearts Spacer (apparently to be marketed as Pandora Space in My Heart in the US market.) This spacer debuts with both clear or pink zirconia and is super cute for those looking for a very feminine splash of sparkle. The Pandora Surrounded by Love charm is a versatile silver sphere boasting pink cubic zirconia detailing in a heart shaped pattern. It’s worth noting the drastic difference in shading between Sparkling Hearts and Surrounded by Love showing quite the choice between hot pink and a more delicate blush colour.
The next image shows one of my favourite charms from this release and an absolute must have for me, the Pandora Valentine’s Day Card (or Pandora Love Note for the USA.) The charm features an exquisitely carved hanger with intricate rose detailing, while the card itself is engraved Happy Valentine’s Day on one side with a heart on the rear.
The second charm depicted is the new Pandora Interlocked Hearts (or Pandora Interlocking Love for the US.) One of the two hearts is beautifully set with cubic zirconia. It’s worth noting that in a continuation of bizarre distribution for the US, this charm is set to be a concept store exclusive (regular distribution applies for everyone else.)
The next image shows a much requested design at the top, the new Pandora You & Me. This is highly reminiscent of the Pandora Mother and Daughter and Mother and Son split charms that have debuted for the past two years. Indeed I reviewed one last year and while I adored the actual design, it was absolutely not applicable to me. This charm is a single piece as obviously, most men aren’t going to agree to wear the other half. The enamel inside is pink making it a good complement to the rest of the collection.
The second charm is the new Pandora Love, a dangle style charm with a pink zirconia. Finally the third is the new Pandora Cupid. For those in the US, the cupid will only be available via Jared’s.
The next images capture a plethora of sparkling heart themed charms. The Pandora Shimmering Heart is an updated version of the ever popular silver heart design, with additional sparkle. The Pandora Heart Pavé Ball is the same basic design as the existing pavé lights but with focal pink zirconia. Finally comes the Pandora Love Bonds with it’s openwork design.
The next image shows the second of my favourite charms from the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 collection, the Pandora Gift from the Heart. This is a hinged heart shape box with a gold ring nestled inside. The design is somewhat reminiscent of the Pandora Club Charm 2014.
The next charm I admit confuses me a little and I almost wonder if this is actually part of the Pandora Spring 2014 collection as it seems to have no link to Valentine’s Day. The Pandora Figure Skater is a dainty dangle style charm, ideal for fans of the sport.
The final image shows the new Pandora Pavé Bracelet. It’s a simple chain with a sparkling pavé heart acting as a focal piece.
Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 Summary
The rumoured release date for the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 collection is January the 13th. Official launch dates seem rather flexible in the Pandora world however and usually stores receive their stock in advance of the release date. Oddly they’re then permitted to sell charms in store but not online where images are involved. If previous releases are any indication, this could mean some retailers have their stock by the end of December.
I think the collection itself is pretty. A continuation of the popular pavé charms is seen and a couple of pieces are utterly exquisite for me, most notably the Pandora Gift from the Heart and the Pandora Valentine’s Day Card.
Of course the question as to when the Pandora Essence Collection will see new additions has yet to be answered.
As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 collection? Are you already coveting any of these charms? Hit the comments and let me know!
