Celebrate the Bonds of Love- The Pandora 2018 Mother’s Day Collection is Here

The Pandora 2018 Mother’s Day collection is here and it has added beautiful new pieces in virtually every category of Pandora! Focusing on soft pinks with hints of sparkle, the Mother’s Day collection is meant to help us celebrate the bonds of love.  Check out our overview of all of the new pieces below!

Pandora Mother’s Day Collection Family Related Charms

As always, the Mother’s Day collection’s main focus is charms that celebrate the family and mom’s place within it.  This year’s collection really goes beyond the traditional “mom” charms- we love the unique ways the new designers have found to honor mom!

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Brilliant Bow Earrings ($60), Mother & Baby Bird ($50), Perfect Home ($55), Brilliant Bow Ring ($65)

Two of our new favorite charms are the Mother and Baby Bird dangle and the Perfect Home dangle.  The birds are such a sweet representation of a mother and child relationship and have a beautiful ombre effect in the sparkling stones that surround the birds.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

The Perfect Home is a locket-style charm that opens to say “Home is where MOM is.”

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Family Tree Necklace ($125); Everything I Am You Helped Me to Be Necklace ($75); Degrees of Love Charm ($35), Love Mom charm ($45), and Petite Facets Purple Charm ($50) on Open Bangle with Sparkling End Caps ($125)

Another one of our new favorite charms is the Degrees of Love charm.  With a soft enamel that blends from pink to lavender, one side says “❤ you more” and the other says “❤ you most”.  We love that this charm celebrates our love for mom but still has a beautiful abstract look!  The new enamel Love Mom charm is also a very pretty complement to the colors of the season and is a great look for those moms who prefer the silver and enamel charms to those with pavé stones.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Mama Bear charm ($65) with Shining Path Clips ($45) on Pandora Sliding Bracelet ($65)

We also love the new engraved “Mama Bear” charm to celebrate how fierce our mother’s love can be!

Rounding out the family themed charms are some beautiful new family tree charms, mom and harmonious hearts dangles, whimsical balloon animals, and a new murano glass charm with glitter pink in the interior.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

The Bonds of Love themed charms feature a bow motif and, in addition to two new clips and a heart bow charm, include a new “statement charm” that is much larger than the traditional Pandora charms.  We love the way the Brilliant Bow looks styled by itself on an open bangle!

Open Bangle with Sparkling End Caps ($125); Sparkling Strand bracelet with Golden CZs ($50); Brilliant Bow Charm ($90) on Open Bangle with Smooth End Caps ($80)

Celebration Charms

In addition to the family themed charms, this year’s Mother’s Day Collection includes some fun new celebration charms!  These range from milestone birthdays and achievements to bridal themed charms.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Celebration Bouquet charm ($55), Celebration Cake charm ($45), Best Bridesmaid charm ($45)

We think the new Celebration Cake charm, with it’s multicolored enamel icing and “Congrats” tag,  is particularly adorable.  The Celebration Bouquet and Best Bridesmaid charms are a great way to ask your friends to be a part of your bridal party or commemorate the day!

pandora mother's day collection 2018

 

Other additions include a love themed safety chain, a Love Couple trio that includes a mustache, “Mr & Mrs.” heart charm, and pink lips, a 2018 graduation scroll, milestone age or anniversary charms, and an Achievement trophy.

Pandora Rose

The 2018 Mother’s Day Collection is a big step forwards for Pandora Rose lovers!  There are a lot of new additions in the charms category, including both new designs and some of our favorite silver designs redesigned in Pandora Rose.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Mother & Daughter Charm Set ($90) on Pandora Rose Bangle and Smooth Bracelet ($150 each)

One of our favorite Pandora Rose charms is the Mother & Daughter set of 2.  We love the combination of the Pandora Rose with the cream enamel.  This is a great gift for daughters with Pandora to give because it includes a gift for yourself as well!

pandora mother's day collection 2018

In the new Pandora Rose charms. the Hearts Filigree, Pattern of Love, Part of My Heart, and Harmonious Hearts Pacifier are all designs available only in the Rose.  We particularly like the Patterns of Love, which has “Love Makes a Family” engraved on the back and a pretty lattice design on the front.

Gift Sets

Pandora always includes some great value gift sets in their Mother’s Day Collection.  This year’s sets are a real treat with a great variety of stylings!

The Sparkling Mom gift set brings mom into the innovative world of Pandora’s memory lockets.  Made with sapphire crystal, like luxury watches, to deter scratching of the clear surface, these lockets let you make beautiful vignettes with Pandora petite charms.  The locket included in this set is reversible- you can wear it with the sparkling pavé side or the smooth silver side facing up.  It includes three of the new letter charms spelling out “mom.” At $129, it represents a 24% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

The last special addition this year is the Flourishing Hearts Limited Edition locket bangle.  This bangle has the new locket-style clasp with the Flourishing Hearts motif and is engraved “Love makes a family” on the bangle.  You can add charms to the bangle, but we think this bangle would also be beautiful standing by itself stacked with mom’s other bracelets!  This is a Limited Edition offering and is $75.

Earrings, Rings, and More

With the Mother’s Day Collection, a small group of new jewelry items beyond the charms has been released as well.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

One of our favorite new additions is the new Alphabet petites ($10) for the Memory Lockets.  These new initials are reversible- one side is a smooth silver and the other has a pretty texture studded with hearts and small dots.  Mix initials and birthstones to make a representation of your family!pandora mother's day collection 2018

We love the new Brilliant Bow earrings ($60)- more abstract (and mature) than the existing bow earrings, the long line of these is really pretty when you wear them as an ear climber.  Other earring additions include new small hoop-style abstract heart earrings in both silver and Pandora Rose, Flourishing Heart studs, heart studs with a soft pink enamel.pandora mother's day collection 2018

In new necklaces, there are two disc-style engraved necklaces ($75).  These are a longer length and would make great layering pieces.  The new Pandora Signature collection has added some heart pendant designs in both silver and Pandora Rose as well.pandora mother's day collection 2018

One of our favorite additions in the Mother’s Day Collection is the Pandora Rose version of the wishbone rings released during the holidays!  These look great stacked together or stacked with their silver counterparts.  The Shimmering Wish with its sparkling CZs is particularly pretty!  There are also two new Pandora Signature rings, one in silver and one in Rose, and a Brilliant Bow statement ring.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Pandora has continued to innovate in their bracelet designs this year.  The new bolo-style sliding bracelets, which began last year with the Sparkling Strand, have made their way into the charm line as well.  These bracelets adjust to fit any wrist size, making sizing much easier, and have interchangeable ends so that you can make two-tone designs!  The Sparkling Strand bracelet has also been updated to include a new version with golden colored CZs.

Essence Collection

Pandora has also added some new styles to the Essence Collection with it’s Mother’s Day release.

pandora mother's day collection 2018

Pandora Bracelets- Charm Her

Pandora is a classic choice for a memorable and meaningful gift.  Not only is it alluring, the thought that goes into choosing a charm makes it a personal experience.  We love some of the new bracelet styles that have been introduced in the past year.  Not only are they a great way to start a Pandora bracelet for someone who is new to the charm world, they are a wonderful way to give life to an old collection of charms.  The new open bangle has become one of our best-selling bracelets, and for good reason.  Not only is it easy to take on and off, but it comes with spacers to keep your charms in place and fits more naturally to your wrist than a round bracelet.  The new heart lock bracelet is also a stunning addition to the collection.

valentine's day

Love Locks Earrings ($45), Lock Your Promise Bracelet ($75), Open Bangle ($75), Shape of Love Charm (Center, $55), Key to My Heart Charm/Pendant ($75) on chain ($30)

The great thing about the curated collections that are released for Valentine’s Day is that they are designed around a common theme.  This makes it easy to add some beautiful jewelry pieces that coordinate with the charms to make a well-rounded gift!  We love the “Love Locks” pieces from this years collection.  The “You & Me” ring is also a sweet piece for a young girl.

Our Thortiuda pendants are a staff favorite- they are one of the pieces of jewelry we get the most compliments on!  Classic in style but unique enough to stand out in a crowd, these necklaces open to allow the chime inside to be interchanged for different colors.  Named for the Thai word for angel, the necklace is designed from traditional necklaces meant to call your guardian angel.  Each colored chime has a different meaning- choose one that best captures your sentiment for the season!

Pandora Rose- For the Romantic

The vintage color of rose gold is popular with the bohemian and romantic personalities alike.  Pandora Rose, a proprietary metal blend that combines sterling silver and copper, gives the beautiful hue of rose gold without the price of a solid rose gold piece.  This year’s Valentine’s Day collection has some fun new additions in the Pandora Rose. We love the typography-inspired “I Love You” dangle charm.  Combining both silver and the Pandora Rose, it is a great way to start on a two-tone bracelet!

WinterLemon- You are my Sun, My Moon, and All My Stars

We love the celestial pieces in our locally-made WinterLemon jewelry, which are handmade from precious metals and genuine gemstones.  We think they are a stylish way to express the heavenly nature of love.  Not only do they let you show your love for your special someone, they let you show your love for you community as well be supporting a local artist!

Diamonds Are Always a Good Idea

Elizabeth Taylor once said “Big girls need big diamonds”- and for good reason!  A girl may have dreams of silver and CZs, but give a woman a diamond! One of the strongest materials on earth, diamond jewelry is an investment piece made to last.  Unlike silver fashion jewelry which is not meant for everyday use and will not stand the test of time, giving a gift of gold and precious gemstones means giving a gift that can be worn for decades with the same sparkle.

Alex and Ani- A Gift for the Gals

Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends? Drop them a sweet treat with one of Alex and Ani’s new Valentine’s Day bangles! We love the new “Mon Amie” bangle as a way of celebrating friendship- it translates to “My Friend” from French.  Add a sparkling Swarovski bangle or one of the new beaded pieces in the shiny rose finish for an extra touch of sparkle!

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.

Featured Designer, Holiday, New Arrivals, Uncategorized

Featured Designer: Sorrelli Jewelry

sorrelli

There is a new designer in town and they have really brought the sparkle!  Our featured designer this month is a new arrival at Versant, Sorrelli Jewelry.  Locally designed in Kutztown, PA, Sorrelli is known for their gorgeous pieces adorned with semi-precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals.

Sorrelli’s Local Beginnings

Sorrelli was founded in the early 1980s by Kutztown University graduate Lisa Oswald.  After moving to New York, Lisa began designing jewelry she could wear to friends’ parties in downtown Manhattan.  She began her jewelry enterprise out of her Brooklyn loft, where she made each piece by hand on her kitchen table.

sorrelli

At the time, her twin sisters helped with the sales and marketing of Lisa’s creations. The three sisters come from a strong Italian-American heritage; Sorrelli is an appropriation from the Italian word for sisters, sorrel.  In the late 1980s, Lisa and her husband Kermit moved to back to Pennsylvania where they converted and 18th century barn into their jewelry design studio and started a family.

Lisa & Kermit still live in Pennsylvania, and continue to produce the signature designs for which Sorrelli has become known and adored around the world.  Sorrelli remains a family business, with the second generation of Oswalds joining the ranks at the company headquarters in Kutztown, PA.

The Jewelry

Sorrelli graces the jewelry boxes of celebrities, career women, and jewelry lovers of every background. The Sorrelli devotee ranges in age from her teens to her 90s (and certainly beyond). Any woman who loves a generous helping of glamour and glitter in her life is naturally drawn to the beautiful handcrafted pieces in Sorrelli’s many collections.

sorrelli

Each piece starts out as a metal silhouette.  The base metal of most designs is brass; each piece is plated in an antique gold-tone, antique silver-tone, bright gold-tone, bright silver-tone, or gunmetal finish.

sorrelli

Each collection features a unique mixture of semi-precious and synthetic cabochons and crystals.  As a Swarovski® crystallized elements brand partner, Sorrelli uses genuine Swarovski® crystals in the majority of its jewelry. Semi-precious cabochons like desert jasper, reconstructed turquoise, freshwater pearls, and tiger’s eye are also used in their bold, beautiful pieces.

sorrelli

Lisa Oswald Collection

Within the main collection, Lisa Oswald has her own signature collection that features a more casual, bohemian aesthetic.  These pieces are great to add a touch of sparkle to your everyday look.

Sorrelli’s Black Onyx holiday collection

Beyond their core collection, Sorrelli designs limited collections featuring unique color combinations to create the perfect palette for every season.  We love this year’s holiday Black Onyx collection!

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.

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!

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.

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!

An extra-special holiday addition this year is the Rockette’s Limited Edition Bright Ornament charm.  Not only do you get this beautiful LE charm with bright red enamel and swirling pave crystals, but it is packaged in a keepsake ornament box!  Both the ornament and the charm have the year engraved, making this a special collector’s piece.

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.

alex and ani

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.

alex and ani

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.

alex and ani

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!

alex and ani

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.

 

Interested in the new Alex and Ani pieces?  It is always better to see them in person to get a true idea of their size and detail!

Introducing the Pandora Open Bangle

open bangle

Exciting news for the Pandora lover!  Pandora has just introduced a great new bracelet design for displaying your charms.  The open bangle is a cuff design that includes removable end pieces and movable silver stoppers.  Showcase some of your favorite charms at the top of the bangle, or reverse it and wear it plain with the stylish end caps on top!

 

The open bangle is currently available in two designs.  Both bangles are made from solid sterling silver.  The first design has solid silver end caps with Pandora engraved on each side.

The second open bangle design includes gorgeous pavé end caps for a little added sparkle.

Each open bangle includes five pieces, the bracelet itself, two removable end caps, and two moveable (and removable) silver stoppers with silicon inserts.  The silicon on the interior of the stoppers allows them to stay in position where you place them on the bracelet.

Silver Stoppers Keep Your Charms in Place

The new design is very easy to use.  Simply push the end cap in and twist to remove!  We love using this new bangle to feature some of our favorite charms to match our outfit of the day.  Unlike many of the other bracelets, the open bangle has no clasp to open and is ideal for those who have a hard time opening the traditional closure.  With its flexible design, it is easy to pop on before you head of the door and just as easy to take off for the night, making sure that your jewelry stays in its best (and most sparkly!) condition.

 

We also love that you can style the new open bangle in different ways.  Add charms to the center of the bangle and wear them on the top of your wrist.  Or, add a charm near each of the end caps and keep in place by sliding the silver stopper to the end after the cap has been replaced.  Want a minimal statement today? This beautiful bangle makes a simple statement when worn by itself.  Pull the stoppers all the way to the end caps to give it a “finished” look!

One Bracelet, Three Ways
