Pandora Charms For Fall

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Despite the disappointing earnings reported earlier this summer, Pandora keeps on going, and many jewelers are still standing by them and their products. Others theorize that the whole concept is a fad that has run its natural course. I guess time will tell…

In the meantime, let’s focus on something more positive. Pandora recently released their fall lineup of charms and beads and it includes a few new bracelets too.

New charms and beads include lots of dangles: a collection of Chinese zodiac signs, gold and silver beads with dangly pearls, an adorable silver clip with a filigree flower dangle, and a totally darling silver bead with a blue cameo butterfly dangle.

There are 5 new Murano glass beads named “Exotic” in bright colors with dots (so in this season!), 6 Murano “Ladybugs” beads in fall colors, and 6 Murano “Stars” beads in both bold and subtle colors.

The new “regular” precious metal charms consists mostly of sterling silver beads, a few gold ones, and several that are a bit edgier than what we are used to seeing from Pandora. In this collection, I especially like the “Stella”, “Nostalgic Romance” and “Perfect Poises” beads

On the bracelet front, I think the most exciting new arrivals are the single and multiple silver chain designs. It’s a whole new look, and they are accompanied by a new collection of clips (the multi-strand can hold one, and the single chain up to five).

The clips come in all styles: some are named “rock star” and as you would guess, are a bit on the“tougher” looking side (angular, a few are black rhodium plated), some have cubic zirconias, some are on the cutesy side (silver with a braided gold heart; a sleeping cat; a royal carriage; a purse)

There are also a few new braided leather bracelets (in the same style we’ve seen before) in new fall colors: two pink and two purple (single and double).

Overall, I think it is a really nice collection that includes a few welcome unexpected twists. I like it!
