Tied Together- Introducing the 2019 Pandora Mother’s Day Collection

The 2019 Pandora Mother’s Day collection has arrived, and it is filled with beautiful knot motifs, fun new celebration beads, and a whole new family of charms to love! Read on for our full review of the new pieces below.

Tree of Life ($60) and Knotted Heart ($115) bracelets

The Pandora Mother’s Day mini-collection includes new pieces in both the jewelry and charm selections.

The collection focuses on three main themes, Knotted Hearts, the Tree of Life, and the traditional family and mom-related charms associated with Mother’s Day.

These themes extend to the three new bracelets that are part of this collection. We particularly love the Knotted Heart toggle bracelet- what a beautiful way to show mom how much you appreciate the bond between you!

Knotted Heart bracelet ($115), Limited Edition True Uniqueness Bangle ($90), and Tree of Life Adjustable Bracelet ($60)

This year’s collection also adds some adorable new members to the Pandora charm family! In addition to the new boy and girl, an older man and woman and a group of new pets have been released.

New Dog and Cat Charms!
The Wise Family

We love the movable parts of the Wise Family pieces- especially the little boy’s propeller hat and girl’s pigtails! The new dog and cat charms are also some of our favorites- when you are not wearing them on your bracelet you can add them to a chain to make a cute necklace!

Top (L-R): Mr. Wise ($55), Mrs. Wise ($55), Propeller Hat Boy ($55), Girls with Pigtails ($55), Forever Sisters ($55)
Bottom (L-R): Bull Terrier ($50), Sweet Cat ($50), Bulldog ($50), Labrador Puppy ($50), and Family Book ($55)

A lot of this year’s mom-themed charms are able to be separated into two charms, celebrating the connectedness between mom and her children. There are also some fun new interactive pieces- the Spinning Tree of Life can be turned around to reveal a message on the back, Mom’s Golden Heart reveals a message when rotated, and the Window Heart charm can be opened to show mom’s name in the night sky.

Top (L-R): Mom in a Million Heart ($45), Window Heart ($55), Mom Script ($35), Mom’s Golden Heart ($90), In My Heart ($75)
Bottom (L-R): Perfect Family ($65), My Little Baby ($55), Spinning Pandora Tree of Life ($55), Mother & Son Love ($65), Mother & Daughter Love ($75), Hold Your Heart Split ($60)

The Knotted Heart theme is represented in three new charms. We love the dangling Knotted Heart Charm with its sparkling background; on the reverse is engraved “Joined by Love”.

Knotted Heart ($35), Knotted Heart Clip ($35), Knotted Heart Dangle ($55)
Graduate Owl ($55) and Cap, Book, and Scroll ($45)

Another great addition is the new Our Promise charm for the newly engaged bride-to-be! This heart-shaped box opens up to reveal a moveable engagement ring- the inside of the lid is engraved “Yes!”

The My Rock charm for the groom-to-be to commemorate an engagement.

This year’s Mother’s Day collection also includes some new celebration charms for different occasions. The new 2019 graduation charm, engraved with the year, is one of our favorites- we love the moveable tassel on the graduation cap sitting on top of the books!

Our Promise ($65) and My Rock ($55)
Cap, Book, and Scroll ($45), Our Promise ($65), Heart Balloons ($55), My Rock ($55), Glittering Grooves ($60)

The last editions in the charm category are Disney charms preparing for the new Aladdin live action movie! We love the way the genie’s lamp glows in Pandora Shine ūüíõ

Magic Carpet Ride ($55) and Magic Lamp ($90)
Knotted Heart Dangle Earrings ($100), Knotted Heart Necklace ($90), Open Bangle ($125) styled with Luminous Love Knot ($65), Enchanted Pavé ($75), and Knotted Heart Dangle

In the new jewelry additions, we think the Knotted Heart pieces really stand out. We love the contrast between the bright silver knot and the sparkling oval.

We love the idea of creating a layered look with the new Knotted Heart toggle bracelet and an open bangle styled with the new knotted heart charm.

We think these pieces pair really nicely with the older Sparkling Love Knot and Luminous Love Knot designs as well!

We also like the new Family Tree necklace. A more petite version of the statement family tree necklace, this adjustable-length design is beautiful for everyday wear. The new Layered Heart necklace is also a real treat- it gives the look of two layered necklaces with one clasp!

Knotted Heart ($90), Pandora Tree of Life ($75), and Layered Heart ($100) necklaces

Other new jewelry pieces include a stud version of the Knotted Heart, stackable and statement versions of the Knotted Heart as a ring, and Family Tree studs and dangle ring.

Knotted Heart Studs ($50), Knotted Heart Dangle ($100), Pandora Tree of Life Studs ($55)
Knotted Hearts Band ($45), Knotted Heart ($75), Pandora Tree of Life ($55) rings

We hope our overview of the new Pandora Mother’s Day collection helped give you some great ideas for mom’s big day this year! Stop by Versant to see all of these beautiful pieces (and more!) in person. As always, we greatly appreciate all of our customers who make the effort to #shopsmall with us and support our local business.

Fly Away with the Pandora Garden Collection- New Spring Arrivals

Blossoms and butterflies, bright blues and romantic rose hues- the Pandora Garden collection is here! The spring collection always evokes the sunny days to come with its whimsical nature-related pieces. This year’s spring collection has four main themes- Wings to Fly, Lucky Styles, Matte Brilliance, and Blossoming Styles. There are also a few new Disney pieces that were released! Read on for our full review of the Pandora Garden charms and jewelry.

A Charmed Garden

New Butterfly Wing charm ($50) and Butterfly Outlines earrings ($65)

One of the main themes of this year’s spring collection is butterflies.

All jewelry categories got some beautiful new winged editions- some a literal take on the butterfly image and others, like the Butterfly Wing charm, an abstract use of the butterfly outline.

We love the use of enamel in this year’s butterfly-themed pieces. Not only do we have the usual soft pinks and vibrant blues- there are some new pieces that mix in emerald greens and marigold yellows in a fun new way!

Decorative Butterflies Pandora Shine earrings ($75), Dazzling Pink Butterfly necklace ($100), Classic Flower Arrangement charm ($55) on the new Sliding Bangle bracelet ($65)
The new Decorative Butterfly statement charm ($80) surrounded by Butterfly Wing charms on the open bangle.

We think the new Decorative Butterfly statement charm makes a great centerpiece to a spring themed bracelet. We also love the way the spring pinks and cobalt blue colors are complemented by the bright gold of Pandora Shine!

Rounding out the butterfly charms are the `Dazzling Pink Butterfly ($75), Butterfly Arrangement spacer ($30), Butterfly Glass charm ($50), Butterfly Arrangement clip ($40), and Pink Butterflies charm ($50)
Limited Edition Floral Bella Bot ($75)

You can’t have a magical garden without flowers! The Blossom portion of the Pandora Garden collection features both bright enamel flowers and classic monotone silver styles.

We love the Blue Sparkle Flower charm with its soft blue tones. It goes really well with last year’s Blue Enchanted Pav√© charm.

There is even a new Limited Edition Bella Bot- Floral Bella Bot! She is so charming with her flower crown and moveable butterfly wings!

In the Blossom collection are the Blooming Watering Can ($55), Pink Flower Glass ($50), Flower Color Story ($65), Classic Flower Arrangement ($55), Four-Petal Flower Dangle ($55), Blue Sparkle Flower ($80), Openwork Flower Charm ($30), and Flower Bella Bot ($75)

The last theme in the Pandora Garden silver charms is Lucky Styles, featuring the Four-Leaf clover- all grown up!

The majority of this part of the collections centers around a beautiful bright silver oversized clover.

There are also some more colorful charms that mix emerald greens and light pink for a dazzling effect.

We love the adjustability of the Lucky Four Leaf Clover Y-Style necklace- pull on the bottom leaf to change the length of the bottom chain!

Included in the Clover-themed collection are the Clover Cut-Out charm ($35), Shining Clover Clip in Pandora Shine ($50), Gleaming Clover Heart Charm ($70), Clover & Ladybird Dangle ($55), Dazzling Clover Dangle ($65), and Horseshoe, Clover & Ladybird Dangle ($65)

There are only a few Pandora Rose charm editions this season (but a lot of beautiful jewelry!). The all-Pandora Rose charms include the Rose Gleaming Ladybird Heart charm ($100), Matte Brilliance Heart Charm ($55), and Pink Sparkle Flower charm ($115).

Bon Voyage!

Have any travels planned for this spring? Pandora has a new mini-collection of travel charms!

Celebrate your wanderlust with these fun new pieces. Whether you are backpacking through Europe, setting out on a road trip in your camper van, or just packing your bag for a weekend trip, there is something new for you!

We love this trio of charms celebrating Latin destinations. The bright red enamel on the Spanish fan is so striking in person!

Spanish Fan Dangle ($45), Sparkling Skull ($55), and Love Puerto Rico dangle ($55)
The new travel charms include the Spanish Fan, Pink Headphones dangle ($50), Suitcase dangle ($55), Camper Van ($45), Sparkling Turtle ($50), Sparkling Skull ($55), Brilliant Bicycle ($65), and Adventure Bag ($50)

Spring Jewelry Styles

The Pandora Garden collection includes a lot of fun new earrings, necklaces, and rings- and a new bracelet design!

The new bracelet uses the sliding closure with a hard bangle bracelet. This is a great style for those who like the more natural shape of the oval open bangle but worry about not having a safety closure.

The earrings, rings, and necklaces all follow closely with the Pandora Garden themes of butterflies, blossoms, and lucky clovers.

We love the four-petal blossom styles as a new classic look with a spring twist. Not overly flowery, they pack a good amount of sparkle in a small stud!

New earring arrivals include the Butterfly Outlines earrings ($65), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover earrings ($75), Draped Four-Petal Flower earrings ($60), Four-Petal Flower studs ($55), Radiant Clover studs ($55), Hearts of Pandora Shine hoops ($115), and Decorative Butterfly Shine studs ($75)

Most of the new necklaces keep with the Pandora Garden theme, but there is one notable addition that stands on its own. The Joined Hearts chain necklace has a statement heart link. At 24″ length, it is a great chain to create a layered look with your other Pandora pieces!

Joined Hearts chain ($55), Dazzling & Dancing Butterflies necklace ($100), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover necklace ($90), Dazzling Pink Butterfly necklace ($100), Lucky Four-Leaf Clover pendant ($50)

New Pandora Petite charms for the Floating Lockets have also been released with the spring collection. We love the sparkling green clover!

Pink Butterflies Petite ($20) and Radiant Green Clover ($25)

The new ring additions include classic pieces, like the Four-Petal flower rings, and sparkling garden statements, like the Bedazzling Butterflies ring.

The new stackable Flower Crown ring is a great addition to the Enchanted Crown collection. Like the Enchanted Crown, the Flower Crown rings can be stack back-to-back or intertwined for a two-tone look.

One of our favorite rings this season is the Sparkling Elegance ring released in the Pandora Rose finish- it is so elegant!

Four Petal Flower Ring ($55) and Four Petal Flower Twisted Ring ($65)
Pandora Rose Flower Crown ($100), Silver Flower Crown ($75), Bedazzling Butterflies ($75), Moving Clover ($75), Four Petal Flower ($55), Pandora Rose Sparkling Elegance ($90), Pandora Rose Matte Brilliance Hearts ($65), Bedazzling Butterfly ($65), Dangling Clover ($50), and Four Petal Flower Twisted ($65)

The Rose Garden

Sparkling Elegance Ring ($90), Radiant Teardrop Ring ($125), and Sparkling Elegance Earrings ($65)

We love rose gold tones for spring- they are so soft and romantic! Luckily, there are some gorgeous new jewelry releases in the Pandora Rose finish.

Some of the new Pandora Rose spring pieces are a reimagining of popular silver styles in the Rose finish.

The Sparkling Elegance ring and earrings have both been released in Pandora Rose. We love the simple sparkle of these pieces- they would make great prom accessories!

The majority of the Pandora Rose pieces that were released for spring show off a new finish- Matte Brilliance. Using a velvety new texture, Matte Brilliance tones down the shine of Pandora Rose and brings out the color.

Matte Brilliance Hoop Earrings ($115) and Matte Brilliance Heart studs ($55)
Matte Brilliance Hoop Earrings ($115), Sparkling Elegance earrings ($65), and Matte Brilliance Heart Studs ($55)

One of our absolute favorite pieces in the Pandora Garden collection is the Pandora Rose Ladybird pendant.

We love the soft pink against the Pandora Rose and the touch of sparkle underneath the wings.

This lucky ladybird is ready to fly home with us!

Necklace additions in the Pandora Rose also include a Matte Brilliance Heart pendant and the Joined Hearts chain in the Pandora Rose finish.

Pandora Rose Ladybird pendant ($65)
Matte Brilliance Heart pendant ($65), Ladybird pendant ($65), Joined Hearts necklace ($150)

Pandora Disney

In preparation for the new Timothy Burton directed Dumbo live-action film, two new Disney charms are being released! We love the dangling Dumbo charm with his blue eyes and adorable oversized ears. The back of the Dumbo & Mrs. Jumbo charm has engraved “My Precious Love”

Dumbo & Mrs. Jumbo ($55) and Dumbo dangle charm ($65)

We hope you enjoyed our review of the new spring collection! Stop by Versant to see all of these beautiful new charms in person.

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.

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

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 pav√© stones.

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)

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!

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 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 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

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

We predict that this new design is going to become one of our jewelry wardrobe staples.  Stop by Versant to check it out in person- we think that you will fall in love with it too!

Introducing Poet: An Intriguing New Men’s Collection from Waxing Poetic

poet

Exciting news! ¬†We have just received the new Waxing Poetic Men’s line of jewelry, Poet. ¬†Just in time for Father’s Day, these unique pieces feature necklaces, bracelets, and rings. ¬†Poet is crafted from sterling silver, brass, and quality leathers for a long-lasting keepsake. ¬†Each piece is¬†inspired by wax seals and signet rings and designed with a rugged edge and meaningful symbols.

Necklaces

poet

The necklaces included in the Poet line are beautiful talismans displayed on a sturdy silver chain.  The Poet line uses a lot of oxidized silver to bring a more roughhewn character.  Accented with hammered textures and classic heraldic shapes, we love their unique style.

poet

For the man who likes to travel and explore, the Compass and Explorer necklaces make a meaningful gift.  Emblazoned with the symbol of the compass, they are reminders to be brave and explore beyond the edges of ones comfort zone.  The Coat of Arms necklace, featuring the North Star and an anchor, reminds the adventure-seeker to both follow the stars and stay grounded.

To honor the man who is an ever-steady presence in the family, the star-themed Midsummer Night, Star Shield, and Polaris necklaces are a wonderful choice.  Used for centuries in celestial navigation, the stars are a symbol of eternal constancy.

poet

We also love the Anguis and Peacebringer necklaces.  Symbolic of knowledge, discovery, healing, and transformation, the snake centered on the Anguis necklace celebrates the man who melds a strong mind and dedicated spirit.  We think this piece makes a meaningful gift for a man in the medical profession.  The Peacebringer necklace displays a dove, emblem of peace, accord, and new beginnings.

poet

 

Bracelets, Rings, and Accessories

poet

Beyond the necklace offerings, Poet has a selection of gorgeous leather bracelets and distinctive rings and keychains.  Both leather bracelets are etched with the compass symbol on the clasp.  The brown braided leather Unified Front bracelet is paired with a brass clasp and the black two-strand leather bracelet has a sterling clasp.

poet

The rustic sterling Genesis ring is fashioned after¬†Poesy rings. ¬†Poesy rings¬†were popular during the 15th through the 17th centuries in both England and France as lovers’ gifts, and feature a short inscription. ¬†The Genesis ring reminds us to start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can.

poet

Finally, the coat of arms key fob is a great introduction to the Poet line for the man who is still on the fence about wearing jewelry.  We love the coat of arms symbol- it makes a great key fob for the ladies too!
