Pandora - Gorgeous Christmas Collection

Inspired by the beauty of a landscape touched by frost.   

This Christmas season promises exciting colour combinations and extreme embellishment as PANDORA unveils the Crystallised Snowflake series.  

Fusing one of the season’s biggest trends – embellished accents – PANDORA’s new series of jewellery features snowflake motifs encrusted with sparkling stones - this is really like Disney's "Frozen" for adults 

Like a secret landscape with petite pretty blooms frozen in time and covered with freshly fallen snow, snowflakes are frozen in time by layers of ice-blue crystals and translucent cubic zirconia stones.   

Combining pear-cut and faceted stones, the dramatic series comprises a ring, dangle charm, stud earrings and ball charm hand-finished from sterling silver. A statement ring encrusted with ice-like pattern gently wrap around the finger. The stunning snowflake charm is set with clear and blue stones. 

Translating the extreme detail from the runway to everyday, wearable styles, sterling silver stud earrings and a dangle charm, each featuring a 12-point snowflake in tonal blue crystal and clear cubic zirconia, make sophisticated additions to bracelets. 

Work winter’s trend for extreme embellishment with this crystallised series.  PANDORA is world-renowned for its hand-finished and contemporary jewellery at affordable prices (Bracelets from R799, Charms from R445).
