Limited edition charms or everything I know about Pandora limited edition charms


Often when we read news about the release of new charms, you can come across an icon — lim­it­ed edi­tion charm. Let’s try to fig­ure it out, what does lim­it­ed pan­do­ra charm mean? As we know, Pan­do­ra col­lec­tions are released sev­er­al times a year (you can read more about this here). Each col­lec­tion is the­mat­i­cal­ly tied to a par­tic­u­lar sea­son and has its own sym­bol­ism. Autumn — mut­ed shades, ripe fruits and fall­en leaves. Win­ter — snowflakes, blue tones and a lot of sparkling stones, so sim­i­lar to ice floes. Spring — flow­er­ing, the awak­en­ing of nature, many flow­ers in del­i­cate shades. Sum­mer is a riot of col­ors, relax­ation, the sea and a great mood. That is, every­thing that we asso­ciate with a cer­tain time of the year. The charms of these col­lec­tions are pro­duced in an impres­sive edi­tion and almost all Pan­do­ra chain stores receive them (with rare excep­tions). Charms and bracelets are on sale not only for a cer­tain sea­son, but more, until the com­pa­ny decides to stop pro­duc­ing this type of prod­uct, in oth­er words, they send the charm to “retire­ment”. But, there is a cat­e­go­ry of charms that is pro­duced in a strict­ly defined cir­cu­la­tion (for some rea­son), and in a very lim­it­ed amount gets into stores., And some of them do not get into stores at all.

Ini­tial­ly, I would divide all such charms into two groups:

- out of pro­duc­tion — released in a lim­it­ed edi­tion ini­tial­ly. I won’t write about charms that are out of pro­duc­tion and there­fore dif­fi­cult to find, this is a top­ic for a sep­a­rate arti­cle. This time we will only ana­lyze orig­i­nal lim­it­ed edi­tion charms.

They can also be divid­ed into cat­e­gories:

roy­al charms
charms of the region (coun­try)
char­i­ty charms
club charms
charms black fri­day
cruise charms
charm for employ­ees
exclu­sive charms

Now let’s dis­cuss each cat­e­go­ry sep­a­rate­ly and in more detail.

roy­al charms

The Pan­do­ra brand comes from Den­mark, where there is still a monar­chy and the pop­u­la­tion loves and reveres the roy­al fam­i­ly. Appar­ent­ly, there­fore, it was decid­ed to release charms asso­ci­at­ed with the loud­est and most pleas­ant events for all Danes.

Roy­al Dan­ish Church / Roy­al church — bicol­or charm with a crown and engrav­ing 14–5‑2004. The charm is ded­i­cat­ed to the wed­ding of the Crown Prince of Den­mark Fred­erik and Mary Don­ald­son. Cir­cu­la­tion data vary, dif­fer­ent sources give fig­ures from 1,000 to 3,500 copies.

Heart shaped charm with blue faux spinel on one side and the first let­ters of the names on the oth­er.

Olympic medal / Olympic medal — a pen­dant released only for the UK in 2012 in hon­or of the Olympic Games, but did not stay on sale for long — Pan­do­ra received a com­plaint from the Olympic Com­mit­tee for incon­sis­tent use of the sym­bol of the Olympics or some­thing sim­i­lar. There­fore, the medal was quick­ly with­drawn from sale, but who­ev­er man­aged to buy it was lucky.

I love to trav­el / I love to trav­el — of course, this is not exact­ly a region­al charm, but due to its excep­tion­al sales points, I put it in this cat­e­go­ry. You can only buy it on board the air­craft. The list of air­lines that sell it is quite wide. Released in 2013.

Aus­tralia / Aus­tralia — a charm that made a lot of noise. It was released in 2013, but imme­di­ate­ly after the release it was with­drawn and a mes­sage appeared on the com­pa­ny’s Face­book that this was done due to its graph­i­cal inac­cu­ra­cy. They promised to cor­rect and release it soon, but so far it has not been released. Still, in a very small cir­cu­la­tion, he man­aged to get on sale and who­ev­er bought it is now over­joyed at such a rar­i­ty.

Charm club Pan­do­ra / Club charm

Charm for employ­ees

Staff charm - although the exact name of this charm does not have. It is also called pan­do­ra pride / pan­do­ra pride or pan­do­ra life / pan­do­ra life. This charm has nev­er been sold, it was giv­en away for free to com­pa­ny employ­ees in 2011. He is a myth­i­cal crea­ture with the body of a lion, the head of a giraffe, and the wings of a bum­ble­bee. These three ani­mals sym­bol­ize cer­tain qual­i­ties for Pan­do­ra: the lion — pride, the giraffe — pas­sion, excite­ment and the bum­ble­bee — hard work.

Exclu­sive charms

In this cat­e­go­ry, I put charms that have become almost a leg­end among Pan­do­ra col­lec­tors.

per­fume bot­tle / pand­pra per­fume bot­tle — PAN engraved charm on the bot­tle. This charm is a leg­end, and even the employ­ees of Pan­do­ra them­selves dis­agree about its exis­tence. Accord­ing to leg­end, the first charms came with PAN engrav­ing, and then it was changed to the let­ter O. There is a pho­to, but it is not known exact­ly how real it is.

But such a bot­tle of per­fume from Pan­do­ra def­i­nite­ly exists.

What to believe is up to you.

Holy Grail / Holy Grail — a very rare charm, it was quick­ly dis­con­tin­ued due to the char­ac­ter­is­tics of blue pearls — it quick­ly los­es its col­or. One of the most sought after charms for true Pan­do­ra col­lec­tors.

These are the lim­it­ed edi­tion Pan­do­ra charms. And how much would you be able to pay for such rar­i­ties?
