I was privileged to be one of the few males invited to the exclusive “Cut and Shave” experience in collaboration with Maxman TV at Truefitt & Hill, Starhill Gallery on 8 November 2013.

Pandora’s Christmas Collection 2013 Preview



After the haircut at Truefitt & Hill, I headed next door to the Westin for Pandora’s Christmas collection 2013 preview. The new collection was launched by Dato’ Meer Sadik Habib, Chairman of Pandora Malaysia and Datin Zarida Noordin, Managing Director of Pandora Malaysia, and marked the brand’s 3rd year anniversary of its existence in Malaysia.

With the theme “Sparkling Christmas’, the new season collection is a celebration of the beauty of the winter featuring lustrous gold and shining sterling silver embellished with sparkling pave set stones, and the beauty of ice crystal and snowflakes are immortalised in earrings, pendant and charms, embellished with 61 sparkling pave set cubic zirconia. Sparkling pave set stones in dramatic colours add a dose of glamour to the party season, and traditional yuletide symbols – striped candy canes, Christmas bells and woollen mitten charms – are suitable additions to the new collection.

Pandora expanded its collection of pave charms following last season’s launch of earring barrels, which allow you to wear your favourite pave set cubic zirconia on sterling silver or 14k gold bracelet charms as earrings.

Crafted from sterling silver, dramatic purple cubic zirconia stones are pave set by hand to exacting standards on charms, rings and earrings. Symbolising a flower on the verge of bloom, the elegant cocktail ring’s stunning pod-like centrepiece features 37 glittering purple stones, A ring of undulating waves of sterling silver is embellishes with 8 clusters of 8 pave set purple cubic zirconia. Elegant pave stud earrings hold 14 pave stones and s stunning silver is decorated with 94 sparkling stones.

The new season sterling silver rings feature pave set clusters of either purple cubic zirconia or black crystal stones. The pod-like centrepiece of each ring embellished with 37 glittering hand set stones. Pandora’s new season pave jewellery is also offered in dramatic black.

The collection starts from RM100.00 onwards with 50 new collections to choose from available from 4th November 2013 onwards. There’s also a special promotion where you can get a free limited edition of Pandora white porcelain Santa Claus with gold painting when you spend RM599.00 and above from 12 November till 31 December 2013.
