Global collaboration introduces hand-finished jewellery inspired by the iconic Harry Potter films. Products are available across all of Pandora's stores and online from November 28.
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2019 /CNW/ - In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Pandora introduces capsule collection of 12 hand-finished products, including charms, pendants and a bracelet inspired by iconic characters and symbols from the Harry Potter films.
Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are brought to life as sterling silver charms, along with recognisable symbols from the popular books and movies, like the Hogwarts Castle and a limited-edition Golden Snitch pendant in Pandora Shine.
Pandora's Chief Creative and Brand Officer Stephen Fairchild says of the collection: "Through our Harry Potter-inspired jewellery, Pandora and Harry Potter fans can express their love for magic, fantasy, bravery and the power of friendship. Pandora fans have asked for this collection for years, and we are really excited that it is here."
When designing the collection, Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli, Pandora's VP Creative Directors, were inspired by the iconic characters to create hand-crafted jewellery that fuses the universe of Pandora and the Wizarding World.
Completing the collection is a Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry charm, a Dobby the House Elf charm and a Hogwarts Express charm with "Anything from the Trolley, dears?" engraved on the bottom.
All four Hogwarts house charms are represented in sterling silver double dangles with craftsmanship details that will excite super fans, like a front disc detailed with the house crest surrounded by man-made stones in house colours. On the back disc, the edges are detailed with crenellations, in reference to the battlements of Hogwarts Castle and a bail shaped like the Hogwarts crest.
Within the collection is also a Golden Snitch bangle, which is an update of the classic Pandora Moments bangle featuring the iconic Quidditch symbol at the clasp.
The Harry Potter x Pandora collection will be in Pandora stores worldwide and on pandora.net from 28 November 2019.
