Pandora 2012 A/W Christmas Collection.


Crown Charm♦ (£25) // Grand Pearl Stud Earrings♦ (£45)
When John Greed Jewellery gave me the chance to pick out a couple of things from the new Pandora Christmas collection, I'm not going to lie, I did a little happy squeal and I felt so lucky and grateful and thankful all at the same time. My wonderful boyfriend got me a Pandora bracelet & my first charm earlier this year and I fell in love with it instantly. I have a more traditional charm bracelet and I never wear it, although it's one of my favourite pieces of jewellery, because the charms get caught on everything and I'd hate to damage it. Pandora bracelets are just so much more wearable in that respect, there are dangle charms but I love the simple bead charms that fit perfectly on to the bracelet.

I had always admired the earrings every time I went into a Pandora boutique and these Grand Pearl Studs particularly caught my eye. Pearls will always have a certain class and elegance about them and these blue freshwater cultured pearls are no different. The almost grey, silvery blue colour is beautiful, making these especially perfect for the Autumn and Winter seasons but I think they'll look wonderful all year round. When the light catches them, they shimmer and almost sparkle but in an understated way so I think they'd look fabulous with a super pretty sequined party dress, or even just to add a little touch of prettiness to a simple jeans & a tee outfit for everyday wear. I love versatile pieces like this & they are silver, so perfect even if you have sensitive ears like I do.  

This year has been one of the most wonderful years for Great Britain, with the Olympic games & the Queen's Jubilee and this Crown Charm manages to embody and represent those good things so perfectly. On a more personal level, although this year hasn't been perfect for me, it's been a good one in so many different ways. It's sometimes very easy to forget about all those happy moments when everything seems to be going wrong, but it'll be lovely to look at this charm and remember that there are so many reasons to smile and although things won't ever be perfect, that's okay because the good times make everything worth it! I'm always amazed by the detail that Pandora manage to put into their charms, even though they're so small & this charm has all the detail you'd expect in something so truly royal. At £25 this is one of the most affordable Pandora charms but you certainly don't lose any detail or quality.

There are lots of other beautiful charms that make up the 2012 Christmas collection, so if you're looking for that perfect gift for a loved one this Christmas, I'd definitely recommend looking at Pandora. There truly is something for everyone! A bracelet and a charm would be such a beautiful and thoughtful gift to open and something that can be added to on special occasions or life milestones. And if charms & bracelets aren't your thing, their rings, necklaces and earrings are also beautiful, simple and truly elegant. I'm a huge fan of Pandora & the personal aspect that surrounds their jewellery.

Do you like Pandora jewellery?

P.S. If you're buying online make sure you purchase from an official Pandora retailer, like John Greed because there are a lot of fakes around!

  4. Those earrings are so pretty. It's nice they're not your usual white pearls and the metal detailing round the side is so cute. Really like the look of the star pave and stocking charm too, might have to put them on the Christmas wish list x

  6. Ahh shut up, so jealous! There are so many gorgeous pieces in the collection, I've been having a serious lust fest! I have asked Colin for one for Christmas though ;-) really need to get some clips as well, sooo annoying when the charms twist over the thread onto another section! xx

    1. The clips really do make such a difference! I saw them as a bit of a 'meh' purchase but I have room for one more and that sparkly one has caught my eye SO much! <3

  7. I've got to admit, and I know I'm in the minority, Pandora bracelets haven't ever really appealed to me. I had a basic cilver charm bracelet for my 14th bday and spent years adding to it, although like you said, I never really wear it as it's so full and heavy and catches easily on things.I like the idea of charms from different countries, as reminders, and I find Pandora charms all a bit too samey.
    That said, those earrings are really pretty and are something I didn't realise they made!

    1. I think that it's nice that Pandora is so accessible but they also have a huge range of charms, something to represent pretty much anything you could ever want. There's definitely a Pandora 'look' but it's nice to have a charm bracelet that's so wearable and goes with everything! The earrings are stunning! <3

  8. Gorgeous! You're so lucky. I don't have anything from Pandora and every time I walk by the store at the mall there's these huge lines. I'm curious about their products but I doubt my boyfriend will ever buy me anything from there, lol.

  9. I've never really been that drawn to the Pandora bracelets, a couple of my friends have them and I've thought ummm I can take or leave them, but I really like the charms you have on yours, I might have to investigate them alittle more. I really like the colour choice you went for on the earrings and the setting is classic with a modern twist, these will last a lifetime :)

  14. The crown charm is gorgeous :) I thought it would be a lot more expensive than £25! I agree that the detailing is always impressive, especially in that Christmas stocking! I love my Pandora bracelet but I've never really looked at the other jewelry they have, they earrings are really pretty.
