New Season Swarovski Jewellery

A beautiful new collection of Swarovski jewellery has arrived here with us, and we truly love it all, with charms, earrings, necklaces and bracelets in an array of bright colours perfect for the Summer and just waiting to be shown off!

Swarovski’s Tropical Paradise collection is inspired by South America with playful charms that are bright and fun with sparkling pave stones and coloured enamel in tone-on-tone shades. The lovable Turtle charm is a charming piece with delicate crystal detailing in stunning shades of green, finished with dangling legs and big eyes! The beautiful Seahorse charm is girly and cute in fuschia with sparkling crystals!

Crystal in blue, purple and green tones have really taken hold of the collection in a variety of different styles. Inspired by water droplets, the delicate and feminine Tonality bracelet features a cascade of pastel coloured crystals and echoes the nature- inspired shapes and colours apparent in all of the new pieces.

新年快樂 (Happy New Year)

Before you question the sanity of the writer, I know that New Year was almost a month ago now (scary!) and I am of course referring to the upcoming celebrations for Chinese New Year, a great and honoured tradition across Asia.

On February 10th 2013, bright and exciting festivals and carnivals will be taking place across China to celebrate what is also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival. As this is such a world famous tradition Pandora have created these beautiful Chinese Zodiac Charms.

Pandora Bath now stock these gorgeous Sterling Silver dangly charms for just £35. Even if you aren’t a follower of the Chinese New Year celebrations, (or don’t really know what it’s about) have no fear! Each adorable animal can be easily identifiable as one of your own adored pets or favourite animals, there’s even a dragon in there for those in love with fantasy creatures.

Obviously, we realise that not everyone knows what each animal represents from the Chinese zodiac so here’s a little bit of help for you, along with the birth dates for each symbol.

Make your Moments Unforgettable

Happy New Year to you all from everyone at Pandora Bath!

We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, and if you were lucky enough to get a gorgeous Pandora charm bracelet and that you’re looking forward to creating a fabulous and truly individual piece of jewellery. Here at Pandora, Bath, we had a great time helping you find the perfect Christmas present for that special someone. And to all those slightly bemused (yes gentlemen we do mean you) by the bright lights and dazzling array of charms and gift ideas we salute your dedication to finding a gift that shows you really care.

A gift from the heart

We had some adorable additions to our vastly growing charm collections this Christmas, with many proving to be extremely popular. The charming dangly enamel Gingerbread Man was a particular favourite with some of the more prepared Christmas shoppers. Apologies to those who missed out on this one, it appears even Pandora weren’t prepared for their increasing demand. The new sterling silver stocking also seemed to be very popular with the intricate detail attracting a wide variety of customers. Along with the great value price of £25 this was described as ‘the perfect stocking filler’ (please excuse the pun) by our shoppers.

Heart charms

Finally, for those looking for a bit of sparkle and glamour this Christmas, the new cubic zirconia Pavé charms provided the perfect amount of bling for your bracelet. With Pandora celebrating its 30th anniversary this Christmas topped off what was already a fantastic year.

Pandora Bath opened its doors to the public at the end of August this year and we couldn’t be happier with the response we’ve had, with both new and regular faces popping in to see what’s on offer. So thank you to everyone who’s visited us so far and please tell your friends about us as we would love to introduce some new faces to the wonderful world of Pandora.

But now January is upon us, along with waking up when it’s still dark and trudging back to the office as the weather struggles to decide what to do with itself (although if we’re honest, we wouldn’t mind a bit of snow!). However, Pandora Bath is still going with its January Sale and with up to 40% off it’s the perfect time to treat yourself. But it won’t be on for much longer so pop in and grab a bargain.

If you’ve had enough of the sales and the January blues are slowly creeping in do not fret Pandora lovers, as the new 2013 valentines stock has just arrived! And I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Even some of our staff are eager to get their hands on the gorgeous new loved up pieces!

Turtle Doves Pandora

Turtle Dove Charm from Pandora

Emma (Supervisor) loves the new dangly pavé heart charms, whilst Jodie (Full-Time) cannot wait to add the turtle-doves charm to her bracelet. This seems to be a favourite among most of the Pandora Bath staff. As do the new elegant drop heart earrings in a sparkling sterling silver. Keep an eye out for your favourite additions ladies (and gents of course) and start placing those ‘subtle’ hints, as always, here in the Bath store we’re happy to help with any questions and hopefully we can help some of you find the perfect valentines gift.

Valentine's bracelet from Pandora

The new Mother’s Day charms will also soon be making an appearance in our store so I’m sure you cannot wait to show your Mum’s just how much you love and appreciate them.

But for now, I’ll leave you with thoughts of sparkling hearts and gorgeous gold. Stay glued to the blog as our members of staff will update with their own Pandora favourites as well as what they plan to add to their ever growing collections. You may even find some inspiration for your own Pandora jewellery!

Get the look! Golden Globes ’13

Out stepped Hollywood’s brightest stars on the red carpet at this years’ Golden Globes showcasing the latest fashions at their very best!

This years glittering event turned back the clock, with inspiration from the catwalk and this years blockbusters. The Spring/Summer catwalk saw designers such as Louis Vuitton take inspiration from the 1960’s, whilst 1940’s glamour is showcased in Emma Stone’s latest film Gangsta Squad and 1920’s elegance in the hotly anticipated The Great Gatsby with Cary Mulligan. These latest styles were mirrored on the red carpet from Zooey Deschanel’s 60’s chic with her high ponytail, red lips and oversized pearls & Adele’s 60’s inspired beehive, to the many perfected vintage waves with a 40’s feel from the likes of Megan Fox, Isla Fisher & Tina Fey; to the 20’s inspired waves sculpted into elegant side buns and faux-bob’s as worn by Naomi Watts, Taylor Swift & Amy Adams.

But no show stopping outfit is complete without the little details – the dazzling jewels and the complimentary accessories and the stars rocked some true statement pieces of jewellery this year. Bold and chunky earrings were the big trend of the night. Megan Fox, Taylor Swift, Emily Blunt & Salma Hayek showed us how big is best with their bright choices.

Megan went bright and sparkly with her pink gemstone large drop earrings, whilst Taylor Swift teamed her plum Donna Karen gown with matching tiered earrings. Both Salma Hayek & Alyssa Milano opted for stunning turquoise drop earring that completed their outfits perfectly.

Julianne Moore, Jennifer Garner & Jennifer Lawrence kept their jewellery very elegant with statement diamond pieces, whilst Anne Hathaway went chic and simple with delicate studs to compliment her pixie cut.

Some stars of the night pulled out all the stops with Harry Winston diamonds! In true Hollywood style, Jessica Alba made sure all eyes were on her. Dressed in a strapless Oscar de la Renta gown, she accessorized her plunging neckline with a striking Mrs. Winston necklace worth $5.8 million, complimented with a ring and platinum diamond earrings to complete her sparkling look! Best actress winner Jessica Chastain also customised her blue Calvin Klein dress with Harry Winston diamonds set in a stunning bracelet and dangling earrings.

Gowns in shades of red and nude were the colours of the night. Hayden Panettiere, Amy Adams and Megan Fox showed us how to do it wearing stunning strapless fishtail dresses in nude shades. Hayden teamed hers with a small pink clutch for a youthful and feminine touch.

Bright to deep red were popular shades of the night, looking fabulous on Clare Danes, Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Garner, whilst French actress Marion Cotillard wore orange.

Nicole Kidman, Eva Longoria & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked sexy and confident in classic Black, whilst Kate Hudson’s black Alexander McQueen gown was a winner spiced up with beautiful gold embroidery! As cool as ever with husband Tim Burton in toe, Helena Bonham Carter looked fabulous in her black (of course!) lace Dolce & Gabbana gown teamed with a bright red Lulu Guinness clutch!
