[Updated 1 October]
In a galaxy nearer than you think, Pandora has released a highly-anticipated capsule collection of Star Wars-inspired jewellery that celebrates the series’ most celebrated and beloved pop culture icons. The crossover collaboration with Lucasfilm dropped 1 October, and includes a bracelet and 10 charms, as well as a limited edition collector’s charm, for a total of 12 items. Show off your fandom, you must.
With our powers of Jedi persuasion, we’ve earlier managed to uncover a glimpse of two items from the collection — first, a Star Wars Clasp Snake Chain Bracelet, and second, a Star Wars Darth Vader Charm.
You can bet these are the accessories you’re looking for.
The bracelet sees the iconic engraved Star Wars logo that should be familiar to avid film-goers, since this is the same blocky font that greets you when the main title theme starts its rousing chorus in your ears. That’s paired with the classic Pandora snake chain design, while it’s also sustainably crafted in 71% recycled sterling silver — a welcome choice that’s carried over to all items in the collection. As for the Darth Vader-inspired charm, this one’s moulded into the shape of the Sith Lord’s famous helmet, done in ominous black enamel and sterling silver.
“We’re honoured to bring Star Wars to life through jewellery,” says Stephen Fairchild, Pandora’s Chief Creative Officer. “The Star Wars galaxy is one of extraordinary imagination, richly-detailed characters and creatures, and incredible adventures — a perfect fit for Pandora. There’s nothing we love more than helping our fans tap into their favourite stories and worlds, so we can’t wait to see how they’ll express their passion through these artfully stylish accessories.”
That’s where we left off previously, but since it’s now October, the full collection is out!
Star Wars™ x Pandora
The limited edition collector’s piece here, is revealed to be the Star Wars Logo Shine Charm, a 3D logo with that vintage vibe, and with engraved detailing that makes the letters pop against their metal backdrop. This one’s only available till 31 December or until stocks last.
Other things on our must-buy list include a nod to classic characters such as C-3PO™, R2-D2™ and the ever-loyal Chewbacca™; an exquisite Star Wars Princess Leia Double Dangle Charm that’s fitted with sparkling blue stones; as well as what’s got to be the most lovable pop culture character in recent years, Baby Yoda. Or, well, officially The Child in the hit original Star Wars™ series The Mandalorian, but we prefer to be affectionate here.
Here’s everything in the Star Wars™ x Pandora collection:
