Festival Season is Here! Meet the New Pandora 2018 Summer Collection

The season of sunshine has arrived!  This year’s Pandora Summer mini-collection includes some bright and beautiful new pieces to celebrate the sunny days ahead.  Inspired by summer festivals, this collection is highlighted by trendy feathers, bright colors, and lots of layers.

A Charmed Summer

This year’s summer collection charms are a mixture of rainbow hues, bohemian styles, and whimsical designs.  One of the themes of the collection is “Follow Your Dreams,” which is engraved on both the gorgeous new Dreamcatcher and Compass Rose charms.

The Dreamcatcher makes a standout choice as a new centerpiece on an open bangle!  The new mosaic charms feature rainbow enamel with mother of pearl accents.

Many of the other charms in the collection center around festival days and boardwalk nights.  We love the new Pandora ferris wheel and popcorn charms (studded with little pearl kernels!).  The sunglasses emoji charm is a great way to express your summertime mood.

 

In addition to the rainbow mosaic, there is a new rainbow heart clip, Radiant Hearts of Pandora charm with rainbow halo, and Love charm with rainbow crystals to help you create a color-filled bracelet.  The carved glass heart charm introduced at Valentine’s Day gets two new companions in burnt orange and turquoise blue for a fun pop of bright color.  Also featuring the turquoise color is a new heart-shaped silicon clip.  On the more whimsical side are the new peace sign, Compass Rose, and Burger and Fries (inscribed “Best Friends” on the top!).

You Can Never Have Too Many Bracelets

The Pandora Summer collection has added some versatile new bracelet styles in their leather collection.  Breaking away from the traditional braided leather design, these feature a smooth leather that lets your charms really stand out.

In the new adjustable sliding bracelet, a black and tan leather style has been added.  In the seasonal leather bracelets, a fun sterling button accent adds an on-trend look to the double wrap bracelets, available in orange, blue, tan, and black.  The sparkling strand has also been updated with a seasonal addition featuring rainbow crystals!

Lots of Layers

Some of the biggest additions to the Pandora Summer collection this year are in the necklace category.  Proving that one is never enough, the new necklaces are meant to be layered in different lengths and pendant groupings to get the full festival effect.

We love the new adjustable length black and tan chokers.  They come with the new feather pendant but can also be worn with any Pandora charm- the Dreamcatcher looks amazing on the choker!  The new textured necklace chain is also a great way to show off your unique style.

In the engraved collection, an “I Love You to the Moon and Back” disc necklace has been added.  For those that like to make a personalized collection of pendants, the new charm-catcher style heart necklace is a fun addition.  We love the idea of adding a grouping of birthstones to represent your family!

In addition to the new chains and chokers, there are a variety of fun pendants that arrived with summer. These pendants look great grouped together in a mix of color and texture.  The new fabric tassels, available in turquoise, pink, orange, and black, and horn pendants are a seasonal addition and will only be available through the summer.  The Fan of Love pendant, available, in silver and Pandora Rose, is cut to create a wonderful sparkling effect. The feather pendant, which comes with the choker necklace, is also available on its own.

Other Adornments

Although the earring and ring departments do not have a great number of new additions, what they have added are some very innovative designs.  The Summer Collection sees the introduction of the Pandora ear cuff, worn at the top of the earlobe.  The new chain-style rings give a new texture to your ring stack and look great grouped together.

Other jewelry additions include a hoop earring with feather and turquoise heart dangle that are a great match to the feather pendant, earrings in silver and Pandora Rose to coordinate with the Fan of Love charm and pendant, and new statement rings with smooth black and turquoise cabochon stones.

 

We love the new styles of the Pandora Summer collection!  These fun bursts of color, sparkle, and texture are the perfect accessory to the sunny days ahead.  Stop by Versant to check out all of the new additions in person! We would love to help you restyle your summer bracelet ☀

Lock Your Promise- Pandora 2018 Valentine’s Day Collection Review

Get ready to get romantic- the Pandora Valentine’s Day mini-collection is here!  This year’s new additions include some classic styles mixed in with some colorful new additions with a whimsical style.  The new collection includes pieces in every category, including a new bracelet concept.  Check out our review below!

Charms

pandora valentine's

The centerpiece of Pandora’s Valentine’s Day collection is a selection of new charms in wide-ranging styles.  The main focuses of this year’s campaign include a beautiful lock and key motif, the encouragement to “kiss more” with kiss themed pieces, and saturated color in bright fuchsia and salmon-pink.

 

The first group of charms are bursting with color.  Many of the enamel charms have an ombre effect with graduating color from the edges to the sides.  We particularly love the new Shape of Love charm, which features a faceted rose crystal.  Included in this grouping is the new innovative spacer shaped like a heart, a new standard clip, and a new silicone grip clip.

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love ($80), Burst of Love ($50), Two Hearts Spacer ($30), Shape of Love ($55), Burst of Love Clip ($40), Explosion of Love Clip ($40)

The next grouping is a whimsical interpretation of the idea that we should “Kiss More.”  We love the details in the emoji style Kiss charm- it has glitter cerise enamel on the lips and hearts along the edge.  The lips charm is a limited selection at the moment.

pandora valentine's

Kiss ($45), Lips ($75), Love & Kisses ($35), Kisses all Around ($55)

The last grouping appeals to the more classic style, with touches of gold accenting bright silver.  Light pink cubic zirconia give a touch of romantic color.  The lock and key symbols and the “You & Me” sentiment are used frequently throughout the Valentine’s collection- we really like the new key dangle charm with gold lock. There is also a new heart lock-shaped clip that makes a great statement as a bangle centerpiece.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts ($75), Two Hearts w/Clear CZ ($55), Talk About Love ($35), Lock Your Promise ($65), I Love You ($50), Tree of Love ($50), Key to My Heart ($75)

There are also a few new additions in rose.  The Pandora Rose pieces in this collection are accented with a synthetic ruby.  We like the mixture of the Pandora Rose and silver letters in the Rose interpretation of the I Love You charm- it is a great way to tie together a mixed metal charm collection.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts Rose Spacer ($40), I Love You Rose ($65)

There is one addition to the Essence collection- a beautiful fuchsia faceted crystal charm that mirrors the Shape of Love charm in the Moments collection.  The meaning behind this charm is Love- the perfect sentiment for the season.

Love Essence Charm ($50)

Bracelets

pandora valentine's

One of the most exciting parts of the new Pandora Valentine’s Day collection is the addition of a new bracelet concept.  The Lock Your Promise bracelet features a new removable lock closure.  We are looking forward to seeing what other similar clasps are going to become available for this concept!

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love Bracelet ($90), Lock Your Promise Bracelet ($75)

The Explosion of Love bracelet carries forward the bolo-style bracelet design.  We like this design because it allows the wearer to adjust the size to what is comfortable to them.  This sweet design has small pink CZ hearts studding the smooth silver cuff.

Necklaces

pandora valentine's

One of our favorite new pieces in this collection is the key-shaped Memory Locket!  Fitting 2-3 petite charms, this locket has beautiful details and a classic shape similar to the Tiffany keys collection.

There is also a lock necklace with a similar concept to the Lock Your Promise bracelet.  We love the details on the Tree of Love necklace, where two colorful enamel hearts are nestled within the tree’s branches.

pandora valentine's

Lock Your Promise Necklace ($100), I Love You Necklace ($75), Tree of Love Necklace ($90), Floating Locket Heart Key ($140)

To accompany the new key locket, there are four new Petite charms.  We love the lock and key together as a pair!

pandora valentine's

Kiss Petite ($10), Heart Key Petite ($10), Love Lock Petite ($10), Love Kiss Rose Petite ($15)

Earrings

Pandora continues to be very innovative in their earring designs.  We love seeing all of the new concepts that are being released and how we can customize them using the pieces we have at home! The new Two Hearts Hoops use a stud earring at the front of the ear that fits into the hoop in the back.  Use some of your other Pandora studs to change the look of the earring!

pandora valentine's

Pure Love Earrings ($65), Love Locks ($45), Two Hearts Earrings ($90)

We also adore the sweet Love Locks studs.  With the short dangle of the heart lock, they offer a little more than the traditional small stud.

Rings

pandora valentine's

On to one of our favorite categories- rings!  There are only a few additions to the rings in this year’s collection, but they are beautiful.  The open-style Two Hearts rings are great for stacking without feeling too heavy.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts Rose ($60), Two Hearts ($45), You & Me ($45), Love Lock ($45)

The You & Me ring features a heart-shaped dome cut stone that has a beautiful depth.  The side of the ring is engraved “You & Me”, adding another meaningful layer.

It’s Time to Shine- The Pandora Holiday Collection Has Arrived

Celestial Sparkle

The first half of the 2017 Holiday collection is accented with bright sparkle and dark blues.  Their use of faceted stones and enamel in place of the usual pave stones makes for a stronger color that is beautifully contrasted by the clear CZs that add some shine to each design.

pandora holiday

We love the new orbit charm ($55) combined with the galaxy spacers.  The new bright star ($75) charm makes a great centerpiece for the open bangle for the winter season.

The glacial beauty charm ($90) is another gorgeous addition; its diamond shape works well with some of the geometric charms released in this year’s autumn collection.  We also love this charm on a short chain as a dainty necklace!

pandora holiday

One of our absolute favorite charms of the new collection is the Celestial Mosaic charm ($65).  Made with mother-of-pearl, the moon and stars have a beautiful iridescence.  The smooth black surface is a great contrast in color and texture to the numerous pave charms available.

Pandora has updated the Galaxy charm and continued with the Nature’s Radiance charms ($70) by adding faceted blue and ruby red stones inside bright silver cages.  The contrast between the silver and the dark stone underneath is really beautiful!  Continuing with the night sky theme, the Snow Flurry ($60), Dazzling Snowflake ($90) and Heart of Winter dangle ($60) charms feature snow motifs against clear and dark blue backgrounds.

The Pandora Holiday collection also includes three new clip designs.  The Heart of Winter ($55) and Bright Star ($55) clips are charm-style clips following this year’s main themes.  The Starry Formation ($45) is a spacer-style clip that is a great neutral piece.

The Essence collection has also had a bold color update with this year’s additions.  Three new charms featuring bright jewel tones have been added.

New Jewelry Additions

These beautiful jewel tones have also been used to update the Timeless Elegance ring style ($75).  The other overarching motifs for Holiday jewelry include the Heart of Winter symbol ($60) and the Shooting Star ($70).  Our favorite so far this year is the sparkling elegance the shooting star pieces- they would make a great addition to any holiday party outfit!

Several new necklaces have been released with the Pandora Holiday collection this year, ranging from small pendants to statement pieces.  The Heart of Winter necklace is available in both a small ($80) and statement ($125) version.

The Classic Elegance pendant has been reimagined as a dainty necklace ($90), and is available in silver and Pandora Rose.

The Shooting Star necklace ($100) is also a beautiful, classic piece.

In keeping with the overall celestial theme, the new Pandora Holiday earring arrivals have a lot of clear sparkle with added accents of blue.  The Shooting Star earrings come in both a stud ($65) and statement ($75) style.  One of our favorites is the Shimmering Drop earrings ($85), which are reversible; one side is a sparkling stud and the other is a faceted midnight blue stone.

pandora holiday

The Timeless Elegance earrings have been updated to include the dark blue stone as well.  These would be a great gift for the bride-to-be!

 Christmas Joy

This year’s Christmas additions follow the tried-and-true formula of bright holiday reds and sparkling silver.   In addition to the traditional red pieces, a pretty dark blue snow globe ($55) and Snowy Wonderland scene ($55) have been added.

We love the new Holiday Wreath ($35) and Sparkling Candy Cane ($45) dangling additions- they are so bright and fun! The Christmas Polar Bear ($45) is a great whimsical addition as well. Several button style charms matching some of the new Christmas petites have also been released.

For the Memory Locket lovers, there are some fun new additions as well.  The bright Christmas Wreath and Jolly Santa are sure to bring anyone into the holiday spirit!  For those who prefer a more neutral palette, the Rose petite additions look stunning in the locket.  We particularly love the snowflake!

The three newly added symbols include the horn, arrowhead, and spirited skull.  Inspired by the Italian and Greek lucky cornicello, the horn is a symbol of plenty and holds the vital force of life.  A symbol of warrior energy, the arrowhead protects you on your journey through life.  The spirited skull symbolizes our foundation and history and the strength that these things hold.

Also included in the new fall release is a color infusion version of the Calavera.  Available in a shiny gold or shiny silver finish, this bangle is adorned with colorful details like a real sugar skull!

In addition to the bangles, four new cuff designs have been added.  The new evil eye joins the scarab, hand of fatima, and calavera in the cuff collection.  All of the new cuffs are available in both Rafaelian gold and silver finishes and are adorned with sparkling crystals.

Limited Edition Sets

Continuing with the whimsical spring and fall limited edition sets released, fall brings us three new bracelet sets. Each set includes one art infusion bangle in a shiny metal finish with enamel detailing.  This bangle is accompanied by coordinating metal and beaded bangles.

The Owl set of three is available in a shiny silver finish and is detailed with warm neutrals.  We love the forest and moon details on the owl’s chest!

The rabbit set of three is available in the shiny gold finish and is detailed with a dark blue-grey.

The moth set of five is one of our favorite Alex and Ani sets so far because of the beautiful fall color palette.  Adorned with colors of plum, marigold, and persimmon, this set is available in the shiny silver finish.

Beaded Bracelets and Wraps

In keeping with the sets, the beaded additions this season cover a range of rich fall hues.  Most of the beaded wraps are opaque with a pearlescent finish, making them very unique compared to previous selections.

The colorful beaded pieces are a wrap design, making them great for fitting closely to any wrist size.

In addition to the new color palette selections, some metal beaded bracelets and wraps are also included in the Alex and Ani fall collection.  These pieces add great texture to your charmed arm.  We love the new two-tone offerings to tie in our new two-tone bangles!

A fan favorite, the leather wrap, has been reintroduced in a braided design.  Available in espresso with Rafaelian gold or nightfall with Rafaelian silver, these wraps make a bold statement.  We love them for ourselves and for the gentlemen in our lives as well!

The Alex and Ani fall collection also includes new symbol-studded metal wraps.  These wraps are available in both Rafaelian silver and gold for the Path of Life and Hand of Fatima designs.  We love these and are hoping for more symbols in the future!

The newest tokens are available not only as bracelets, but as necklaces as well.  The Spirited Skull, Horn, and Arrowhead join the Evil Eye and Cosmic Love as expandable pull-chain necklaces.  The spirited skull is available in both the Rafaelian silver and gold chains.  The Earth Sultry collection has also expanded with new Pendulum pendants.  Beautiful moss agate, shown above, and obsidian pendulum pendants are available on an expandable chain necklace.  These necklaces include chain station beads for adding charms!

Alex and Ani, Limited Edition, New Arrivals

The Alex and Ani 2017 Pre-Autumn Collection Arrives

alex and ani

The Alex and Ani Pre-Autumn mini collection has arrived at Versant!  Included in this small collection are redesigned versions of some of our favorite retired styles, a new Core style, and four new Words are Powerful Limited Edition seasonal bangles.

 

Some of our favorite core bangles were retired early this year and have, until now, only been available as the new cuffs.  With this new collection Healing Love, Godspeed, and Cosmic Balance are invited back into the bangle world!  We love both the meanings and the aesthetic of these three designs.  In keeping with the newer designs, the redesigned bangles have a more 3-dimensional feel and most of them feature sparkling Swarovski stones.

We love the new Cosmic Balance design with the halo of sparkling stars around the sun and moon.  The Godspeed is a nice balance of the geometric and the natural and makes a great addition to any charmed arm.

The redesigned Healing Love has the shape of an 8-pointed star and is the only new bangle style that does not include a crystal.  In addition to the three redesigned styles, a new symbol has been added!  The Evil Eye, a symbol of protection across cultures, is set against an ornate background and has a bright blue gaze.

In addition to the new core styles, four new seasonal Words are Powerful styles are included in this collection.  We love the Thankful (a great bangle to grab now and keep as a Thanksgiving gift!).  The Just Breathe is a fun gift for the Yoga girl.  Both the Wanderlust and the Create your Destiny are great gifts for the new grad setting out on their next adventure!

In addition to the new bangles, two new Rafaelian silver expandable necklaces have arrived in the Cosmic Balance and Evil Eye designs.  The necklaces include two moveable beads that allow for the addition of two more chain station charms.
