Pandora Valentine’s Day 2014 Sneak Peeks

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!

    I was curious to see what you’d think! I thought that individual charms were nice, especially the Gift from the Heart and the You & Me, but that the overall collection was a bit much. Still, my anniversary with my bf is January 16th, so the Pandora Valentine’s collection is usually pretty perfectly placed for me – so I’ll be looking forward to seeing this collection in person anyway ;)

    I have no idea where the figure skater has come from either! ;)

      Hi Ellie :)

      I think a Valentine’s release was always going to be pink, sparkly and full of hearts. Pandora have always been a sparkly brand. I think there’s a couple of outstanding pieces – namely the Valentine’s Day Card and the Gift from the Heart. The detailing on both looks lovely and I like the designs.

      As always I think people are fast to judge. I see so many discussions in fan groups where people dislike the early leaked images. They’re low resolution and fuzzy and they do no justice to the product. By the time the charms are released, everyone seems to be buying them in huge amounts. For this reason I think Pandora need to take a more proactive outlook – much like Trollbeads have begun to do – accept that leaks will happen, that they can’t actually control them and release the stock images so at least the new collections are viewed in a favourable light.

      There are some tiny stock images floating around for this release but I’m not reproducing any pre-release Pandora images covered by copyrights.

      I suspect that figure skater isn’t for Valentine’s Day but that’s just a hunch :D

      Kind Regards

    Hey Victoria,
    I like much of these from the Valentines release. So on Saturday went to the local Pandora store, you know I had switched to Trollbeads Summer2012. But as I had gotten the 2011 BF charm which I loved and the 2012 which I did not like figure might as well get 2013. Did not bother with the Friday rush, figured if it was there fine if not too bad.No to worry they had many left. It was way better than the ugly box of last year and yeehy it is dated.

    Saw the $500.00 gift set, actually 13 beads works out to being about $39 per charm. Not bad still 2 years ago when I was really I to Pandora would have been a bargain, now it was ok but a little disappointed with the case.I wore my Troll bangles with the Sweet Christmas 2012 kit and a couple Winter Berries and Joyful charms the second bangle has the white Dottie bead from the Decorator2012 and 2 lotus charms on either side of the White beads. I got quiet a bit of attention, There I was in the middle of the Pandora store explaining and showcasing Trollbeads.

    I bough none of the Christmas charms, though I went in intending to buy the leaping Reindeer you had featured in The Potter series. Instead I got 2 of the Folklore beads and one pendant called Trinity.I think I will wait for free Bangle promo and pick up a few more Christmas charms then and have a home for Black Friday charms.

    I am not saying that I don’t like Pandora, as I still like many of the charms and will time to time buy a few charms and wear a couple bracelets but for sheer beauty and artistic execution Troll still IMO is tops.

      Hi Angela,

      I do love Pandora but I’m a Trollbeads girl at heart – I think most of my readers know that and honestly I think most of them are here for the Trollbeads articles.

      I completely understand your logic in regards to getting the Black Friday charm – I would have done the same! Regarding that gift set.. I love it.. if someone was to wrap it up and pop it under the tree for Christmas I’d be thrilled of course! I do wish they’d released it here as I’m sure they could have marketed it minus the Black Friday charm just fine :(

      Of the Christmas charms, I think it’s the Winter Kiss pendant (the snowflake pendant) that I’ll be treating myself to. I like some of the others but.. here’s always the big but for me.. I feel I’d need to buy quite a few to really do justice to anything. I had the same issue with the fall release. I have no green Pandora charms so if I bought just one, what on earth would I do with it? Put it on a bracelet alone? Mix it with my pinks and hope no one notices? :p I can’t invest enough in the brand I feel :(

      So I like Pandora too. And I love a couple of the Valentine’s Day charms but deep down Trollbeads have my heart <3

      /hugs

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hi Mariya :)

      This has been sorted in emails I believe.

      For my readers – I was misinformed regarding the copyright of these images. The article will soon be updated to reflect the true owners.

  7. Mariay

    Thank you, Victoria! You could delete my messages :) I wrote it before we talked by email

  8. Rose Mello

    Do you know if the bracelet set will be sold in the USA? Do you possibly know the price?

    • endangeredtrolls

      From what I’ve been told, the USA won’t receive that pave heart bracelet :( I’m not really sure why :(

      Kind Regards
      Victoria
