Promotional feature with PANDORA
With the warmth of spring almost within reach, there’s no better time to awaken from your winter slumber with sunlit sparkle.
And guess what? Last year’s runways predicted big things for jewellery in Spring/Summer 2018. The mood of the season is undeniably maximal and overwhelmingly pretty, with many of the most sought-after trends taking their cue from nature itself.
Get ready to explore a world of statement earrings, sculptural pieces, chunky bracelets, rich hues of gold and designs inspired by nature – many of which feature in the new PANDORA Shine Collection.
Time to go bold with your earrings. Oscar de la Renta wowed the New York Fashion Week crowds with sparkling, crystal embellished tassel creations, Burberry impressed in London with their chandelier-inspired numbers and in Paris, Chanel’s water droplet earrings stole the show. On the high street, this season also sees the launch of an exquisite new range by PANDORA. Inspired by nature’s beauty, the Shine Collection is crafted with precious metals – 18ct gold-plated sterling silver – hand-finished, yet affordable.
London-based designer Rejina Pyo’s recent graphic pieces are proof that sculptural pieces are set to be everywhere this spring. We think bees are among nature’s greatest artisans, so PANDORA’s Honeycomb Lace pieces – part of the Shine Collection – are a delightful homage to our apian friends as well as being on trend. The rings are a particular talking point, covered in intricate honeycomb texture and studded with clear stones set in random patterns like sparkling drops of honey.
Chunky Charm Bracelets
Legendary Belgian designer Diane von Furstenberg says spring is all about channelling seventies glamour, and we love her SS18 collection of high necks and billow sleeves. But how to accessorise this strong look? Chunky bracelets and cuffs, of course. Layer up the exquisitely crafted bracelets from PANDORA’s new Bee Mine line to perfectly complement von Furstenberg’s mesmerising vision
Hues of Gold
Spring promises to be bright and beautiful with the return of molten metallics. And believe it or not, it’s possible to sport this season’s stunning golden jewellery trend at an affordable price. Take PANDORA’S luxurious new charms, inspired by the rich, glossy colour of honey. The glistening hues are pure nectar for your style senses, accentuating a strong vintage look. Here’s another tip: the modern way to wear lustrous metals is to mix and match them. We think the Bee Mine items work beautifully with sterling silver and rose-coloured metals, so there are loads of amazing styling possibilities to try out. Whether you’re two-tone or even three-tone, now is the time to express yourself.
Inspired by Nature
It’s time to unleash your animal instinct. From lifelike butterfly necklaces at Bottega Veneta to zoo scenes at Prada and tropical creatures at Marc Jacobs, SS18 runways have been awash with inspiration from nature. For PANDORA, the bee is most definitely key in spring 2018, and the utterly fabulous PANDORA Shine Queen Bee Pendant is the star of the Bee Mine series. Crafted from 18ct gold-plated sterling silver, its sparkle and black enamel stripes are fit for royalty. Wear it on an adjustable necklace chain at your desired length for an easy way to elevate your spring style.
The PANDORA Shine Collection is available online and in-stores from March 15. Treat yourself before these precious pieces fly away.
