Here's why Pandora's new bracelets are on our add-to-basket wish list

Get excited. Pandora is expanding its portfolio with an additional bracelet range. For the Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, Creative Directors Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli were tasked with rebooting the brand’s quintessential charm bracelet. Their first intuition was to look to the past to reimagine the classic bangle, which lead them to a time period that revolutionised the role of women – the Renaissance.

The era was the perfect inspiration for a collection that embodied forging a new future, championing women and rediscovering individuality. The new design sees mesh bracelets carefully crafted from sterling silver, adorned with clip-on charms and graphic lines for a minimalistmeets-maximalist effect.

Grazia meets the Italian design duo to discuss the exciting revamp…


The Renaissance sparked an era of new ideas, transformed the role of women, and revolutionised the jewellery trade. What was it about this era that inspired you to create your latest collection?
The Renaissance has fascinated us for a long time. There are many parallels between the Renaissance and women’s empowerment. During the Renaissance, women started to step into their power, whether in art, literature or science. There were also many strong and inspirational female leaders, such as Elizabeth I of England and Caterina de’ Medici, queen of France, who helped pave the way for other women. By that time jewellery was already a vital part of self-expression.


What’s your dream for this collection?
We wanted to offer women something that truly reflects them: their personal narrative, creativity and personality. Something that inspires them and
other women.


Tell us more about the design?
The bracelet’s clean aesthetic allows more room for playfulness and expression, and the fluid lines reflect modern femininity.


How do you want women to react to the new collection?
We want women to express their unique way of being a woman. That is what the collection is about: telling your story through jewellery.
Women are stronger than ever, which is simply beautiful.


What’s your message to Grazia readers when experimenting with jewellery?
Reflect your style – let your personality show.
