Yesterday, Pandora released their new collection: Pandora Icons. This modern, yet timeless new collection offers elegant designs that provide a fresh take on the beloved classic, the Pandora Moments Snake Chain bracelet. This bracelet was reworked by the Pandora design team to celebrate Pandora’s 20th Anniversary. This bracelet was also a source of inspiration to other pieces in the collection, including earrings, a ring, necklaces and pendants.

The Pandora Icons collection is versatile, beautiful and offers something for every one. I am excited to share it with you, as well as share my personal favourites. I’ll also share a few other Pandora Autumn release items too!

So, if you are ready…make sure to grab a cup of tea and let’s get started!

The Bracelets:

The Pandora Icons collection introduces two new snake chain bracelets with new closing mechanisms. The new Pandora Moments Sliding Magnetic Clasp Bracelet has a sleek closure that secures the bracelet with the power of magnetic force. I have not seen this bracelet available on the Pandora Canadian estore, so I am going to exclude photos, for now. I have seen it on Be Charming and other authorized Pandora retailers.

“The new pieces are perfect examples of Pandora’s commitment to eye-catching aesthetics melded with high-quality craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques.”

– Pandora’s VP Creative Directors, A. Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo.

My favourite bracelets from the release are the new Pandora Moments Snake Chain T-Bar Bracelet. The bracelet clasp joins together with a classically-informed t-bar system, which also has the snake chain pattern.

“We’re proud of the state-of-the-art design features we’ve implemented, including two stylish, secure new bracelet closures and metal mixed with pavé to create a statement through contrast.” 

– Pandora’s VP Creative Directors, A. Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo.

It is interesting to note that the silver Pandora Moments Snake Chain T-Bar Bracelet comes with clip stations, however the Pandora Rose version does not.

I have added both versions of this bracelet, to my Wishlist! I would most likely wear the Pandora Rose version with a dangle charm and the silver version with about 2-3 charms, plus clips!

The Charms:

In this blog post, I am going to focus on the charms that were inspired by the Pandora Moments Snake Chain bracelet. However, Pandora also introduced some adorable new charms, including the Blue-Eyed Fox, Cute Squirrel Charm, Bear, Fox and Squirrel dangle charm and the Skeleton Girl charm. There are also the Disney Minnie Mouse Robot Charm and the Disney Mickey Mouse Robot Charm which also have a nod to the Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet. I personally don’t see myself adding these two pieces into my Disney x Pandora collection, but would love to know what you think!

I love the snake chain pattern on these charms. I think it is a wonderful way to celebrate 20 years of the Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet and they add a stylish and unique update to a charm bracelet.

I think it is perfect and so cute that Pandora also brought out an updated Snake charm!!! A wonderful nod to the bracelet.

Pandora Necklaces and Pendants

There are some gorgeous new necklaces and pendant options. I have quite a few on my Wishlist. What about you?

I love the new Pandora O Pendants in this release! My top favourites are the Small Pave O Pendant in both Pandora Rose and Silver. I love the touch of cubic zirconia on the closure.

I would love to add one of these to my collection, but still debating which metal!

I currently own two Pandora O Pendants from the original release, last year. I have the Small Pandora O Pendant in Pandora Rose and the Medium Pandora O Pendant in silver. I love both and find them so versatile and fun to wear. The design opportunities are endless. If you would like to see my review on the Pandora O Pendant, I recently created a YouTube video about it. You can watch it HERE or down below:

The last O Pendant in the collection is the Small Beaded O Pendant. I love the texture to it and it has a daintier feel to it! I am also curious about the weight and thickness of it, as it looks like it might be slightly different from the original version.

Pandora Pendant

We also have a new pendant that can be worn on a chain or your Pandora Moments bracelet. It is called the Snake Chain Pattern Open Heart Pendant. This is also a Wishlist item for me!

Pandora Necklaces:

The Pandora Logo Pave Circle Collier Necklace is officially available in Pandora Rose! I am so excited. I loved the silver version, but there is just something so romantic and feminine about Pandora Rose.

We also two other necklaces from the launch:

This looks so feminine and pretty! I am excited to see it in-person.

The Polished Ball Chain Necklace would pair beautifully with the new Pandora Moments Small Beaded O Pendant. What do you think?

Pandora Earrings

Also released are three beautiful new earrings:

The Pave Heart Hoop Earrings are a perfect match with the Pandora Logo Pave Circle Collier Necklace.

The Pink Sparkling Crown Stud Earrings are stunning! I also love the matching ring. These are a must for me!!!

Pandora Rings:

There are four new rings in this release. The Triple Band Pave Snake Chain Pattern Ring is an amazing statement piece, while still elegant!

As mentioned, the Pink Sparkling Crown Solitaire Ring is a huge must for me! It looks so magical and feminine.

We also have to Marquise Wishbone style rings:

Both of these would look gorgeous stacked or worn on their own.

And that concludes today’s blog post! I would love to know what you think about the Pandora Autumn release and Pandora Icon Collection. Please let me know down below!

Pandora also released a new Youtube video, showcasing these pieces. You can watch it HERE or down below:

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day. Stay safe and spread love!

For today’s #StyleSunday IGTV, I wore a Disney themed outfit featuring pieces from Shop Disney, Pandora, Disney X Dooney and Bourke, Ogerbeads and Tarte Cosmetics. I also take you along on my Disney Store shopping adventures.

It was my first time visiting a Shop Disney store since February/stores closed for lockdown. The Shop Disney stores are starting to open back up and I couldn’t wait to go visit! A special thank you to My Pretty Charmed Life and Disney Hungry for letting me know they were opening!

Besides shopping at DAVIDsTEA and Pandora stores, the Disney Store is my favourite place to go to do some good ol’ retail therapy, haha. What about you?

You can hear more about the outfit details and see closeup shots in my recent #StyleSunday IGTV video HERE or down below:

This year, Pandora celebrates their 20th Anniversary of the Pandora Moments charm bracelet. This charm bracelet was first released in 2000. To celebrate 20 years of collecting, Pandora is going through their archives and bringing back a vintage charm every month in 2020. All 12 of the charms will be limited-edition.

So, make sure to grab a cup of iced tea…and let me share with you what this month’s charm is…

*please note that these charms are very limited. Until supplies last. 

The Limited Edition Pig Charm looks nearly identical to the original design of the Pig Charm. I love his wide grin and upright ears. For me, he represents fairytales, reading Lord of the Flies in high school and a cute nod to my guinea pigs: Harlow, Zooey and Georgina.

Celebrate #Pandora20 with me:

Each month, I celebrate Pandora’s 20th anniversary by sharing a special charm in my personal Pandora collection. For this month, I am telling the story behind my Fairy Pixie Charm. I have it as the centrepiece charm on my Fairy Garden themed Pandora Bracelet.

My Fairy Garden Bracelet is inspired by my sister and my mother. Each charm on this bracelet represents them. The fairies represent my sister and the flowers represent my mother and her beautiful garden.

I purchased the Fairy Pixie Charm when it was first released. It reminded me of my little sister, who is in heaven. Fairies and Angels have always made me think of her because I see her as my guardian angel.

“Sisters are like angels.
They sparkle, twinkle and glow,
they are the greatest gift our
hearts will ever know.”

– Author Unknown

Sadly, this charm is now retired, but I am excited to share more of the details and story behind it, with you! It is one of my favourite charms, in my collection.

I have created a video to more personally tell you the story behind the Fairy Pixie Charm, as well as the bracelet theme! You can watch it HERE or down below:

Garden Fairies come at dawn, bless the flowers then they’re gone!

The Details…

The Fairy Pixie Charm

The Fairy Pixie Charm is a two tone charm. The fairy is sitting with her arms tightly wrapped around her knees with a 14 gold ct. heart. She has a thoughtful expression and her hair is tied up into a bun, Tinkerbell Style! Her wings are beautifully detailed, almost like a butterfly. She is wearing a flowing dress and is barefoot.

The Fairy Pixie Charm reminds me of the same fairy seen in the Forest Fairy Pandora Charm. This charm was released after the Fairy Pixie Charm. I love that the Forest Fairy is sitting on a mushroom! It is such a sweet detail.

Do you own either of these charms in your Pandora Collection? I can never resist a fairy charm from Pandora!

For today’s blog post, I styled my Fairy Garden Bracelet with my Pandora Open Bangle (with floral themed Pandora Murano charms) and my Pandora Essence Bangle. I also added two of my favourite floral Pandora Rings and Pandora Daisy Stud Earrings.

And that concludes this blog post! I would like to thank Pandora for the opportunity to be a part of their 20th Anniversary celebration! I am so excited to share exclusive Pandora 20 content and moments with you, over the next 5 months! Pandora will be providing me with 3 of the 12 anniversary charms, in this celebration.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Take care, stay healthy and spread love, especially during this time…praying for the world. <3

Pandora Mother’s Day Collection 2020 | Overview & Inspiration

On April 16th, 2020, Pandora released their Mother’s Day Collection 2020 in Canada and the USA. In today’s blog post, I am going to share the inspiration behind the collection, as well as a look at the new jewellery pieces available!

I hope this blog post adds some fun into your day and that you and your loved ones are safe, healthy and doing well. <3

Our biggest support and greatest inspiration…at Pandora we believe mothers should be shown every day that our love for them is forever.

– Pandora

The Mother’s Day 2020 collection is inspired by two symbols: the infinity symbol and the love knot symbol. The infinity symbol represents eternal love, while the love knot represents connection. What better choices to signify the everlasting bond of love between a mother and child?

Pandora’s VP Creative Directors Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli explored the idea of an infinite and mutual love, begun from the time a child is born. “We thought about the fact that once you become a mother, you are one forever more and so the idea of the infinity symbol linked to a mother was a beautiful sentiment for us.”

– Pandora

These two symbols were used together to create a timeless, yet modern look to the collection.

The Mother’s Day collection release is separated into the following categories: Pandora People Collection, Pandora Timeless Collection and Pandora Colours Collection. Here they are below:

Pandora People Collection

This collection showcases family themed charms to add to your Pandora Moments bracelet! There is also a new Pandora Moments Charm Bracelet, as well! Here it is:

The new Pandora Moments bracelet is called, Family Tree Heart Clasp Snake Chain Bracelet. I have added it to my Wishlist. I love the clasp detail of the tree and how it has “family” engraved on the back of the heart.

Moving along to the Pandora Moments charms:

I love that both the charms above and below are two-tone with Pandora Rose and Sterling Silver.

Love You Mum Heart Charm

This Sterling Silver, Love You Mum Infinity Heart Charm is one of my favourite choices to surprise your mom with. I love that it is an openwork design and that it incorporates the infinity symbol as a knotted design! It is a perfect example of Pandora’s inspiration for this collection.

Pandora also brings us another sterling silver openwork heart, but exquisitely detailed with floral accents:

Moving along, we have some beautiful new dangles:

This dangle charm is magical, girly and fun! I love the message and I totally see my friend, Nichol (MyPrettyCharmingLife) absolutely loving this!

The next two dangle charms (below) featuring a perfect touch of pink enamel and cubic zirconia accents:

We also have a new “Birthday” themed charm. I love that the back reads: “Make a wish” with a little candle detail. So cute!

This dangle is a beautiful choice to give any new or expecting Mother:

Pandora also added this adorable Married Couple dangle charm:

It is just too cute! I love how the couple is caught up in all the wedding day bliss.

Pandora also added two more sterling silver charms to their family collection: Boy Teenager and Girl Teenager! They have such fun details to them.

We also have an updated graduation charms:

The following charm photos were not sent in the press release, but they are also part of the Mother’s Day Collection 2020, as well:

The last charm pictured is the Openwork Family Tree charm. It is one of my favourite charms from this collection! It is so detailed and beautiful. It is also available in a gift set: Pandora Moments Family Tree Bracelet Gift Set.

Pandora Timeless Collection

Pandora added some classic and elegant new pieces to their Pandora Timeless Collection. There are beautiful new rings, bracelets and necklaces! And a perfect gift set for Mother’s Day!

I especially love their new Pandora Rose rings! They offer both statement and stackable options:

The Geometric Shapes Open Ring and Princess Wishbone Ring are two of my top choices!

The Wrapped Open Infinity Ring is such a statement piece (above, far right)!

Up next are the new Pandora Earrings:

The Sparkling Infinity Stud Earrings come in both Sterling Silver and Pandora Rose. We also have a new hoop earring: the Infinity Knot.

Pandora also has two new necklaces in the Mother’s Day Collection:

The Sparkling Infinity Collier Necklace is available in a gift set, with the Infinity earrings to match!

I LOVE the Chunky Infinity Knot Chain Necklace. I have officially added it to my Pandora Wishlist and I hope my husband (AKA Snowman) will surprise me with it for an anniversary, holiday or birthday surprise!

And if Snowman is feeling extra generous, I love the Chunky Infinity Knot Chain Bracelet to pair with it:

There is also a similar style, available in a bangle bracelet:

Speaking of bangles, there is also a new Pandora Rose Open Bangle:

There are also two Moments Charms in the Pandora Timeless Collection:

Pandora Colours Collection

The Pandora Colours release features two jewellery pieces: the Pink & Clear Sparkle Slider Bracelet and the stunning Pink & Clear Sparkle Charm.

And that concludes the Pandora Mother’s Day Collection overview. What are your favourite pieces from this collection?
