Historically, Pandora’s CNY releases have been limited to Asia, but in recent years, they’ve also launched in other regions.
Asia will certainly be getting this release, but I don’t have confirmation yet as to other regions. They’re usually launched in mid-January with the Valentine’s collection. Read on for a sneak peek! Chinese Doll design from a couple of years ago, this time with a male figure, and a little two-tone detailing. This second charm is also part of the CNY collection, I’m told. It combines an enamel back plate with a swinging heart, encrusted with salmon CZs and silver Chinese symbols. It’s pictured below with other charms from the upcoming Pandora Valentine’s 2018 collection.
Obviously, my Chinese isn’t the best, but it looks to me like the same symbol from the Chinese Double Happiness charm, which would make sense! Pandora Disney line, it’s another area where Pandora still and produce character-based designs. It’s a little guaranteed slice of interest every year. I really like the little Chinese figure dangle and will almost certainly be adding him to my collection.
The heart dangle is cute, but more like other beads they produce all year round. What do you think of this year’s CNY release? Do either of these beads tempt you? The doll is the god of fortune holding a gold ingot while the heart dangle is indeed a double happiness which usually symbolizes marriage. Ah, thank you very much for the info! I have very little knowledge of Chinese culture, so I’d never have known that.

Does anyone know where I can buy the heart dangle with the double happiness and salmon cz? I’ve been to 2 pandora stores and the sale people haven’t seen it and said their store didn’t receive it. He is called the God of Fortune which brings wealth and good luck and we love him especially on Chinese New Year! I think I can finally convince my mom to have a Pandora! She’s been rejecting me for the past years! So excited for it to come out! You are welcome 😀 I think he’s adorable as well, although I had no idea what he represented!
Haha, I hope you manage to convince your mum! Mine won’t go for a Pandora either, it’s a continual source of disappointment for me! I know this is off message, but I wanted to share with anyone who might be interested, that I filled one of my bangles with ONLY Oval Light spacers, except for the flamingo dangle which hangs in the middle. It’s so beautiful and sparkly with all the vibrant color. I always get so many compliments when earring it. It’s also a nice piece to wear during the Christmas season.
I don’t usually do a lot of CNY as red is a color I don’t wear very often. But the charms are quite beautiful and exquisitely detailed. No, I don’t go for a lot of red either, but I like that the Asian beads have prompted me to put together a red design, as it’s a bit different to all my others. I can’t contain how excited I am for the CNY release!
That little fella there is the God Of Wealth or Cai-shen. Totally didn’t cross my mind Cai-shen as a charm or pendant for CNY release. Silly me it is so obvious Cai-shen is tantamount to Chinese New Year! Just like how Santa Claus means Christmas. Thanks for the update I am totally looking forward to getting this! Ah, that’s so funny that the Cai-shen is so integral to CNY and yet I had never heard of it before! I’ve been collecting the CNY beads for some time, but am learning new things about it every year.
That’s the really nifty side of Pandora’s cultural beads! I love the Chinese dragon on your bracelet! D He’s one of my favourite charms they’ve done this year. With the gold detailing means the price will be higher but also add a nice touch to the traditionally gold ingot.
The double happiness charm is a good one for valentine release. I think the extra lick of gold will be worth paying a bit extra. I don’t buy as much as I used to from Pandora’s main collections, and am prepared to pay a bit more for the charms I really do like, if it seems worth it. To not get one because of this happening. Kylie, I have had the mesh bracelet since it was released over a month ago.

I wear it multiple times a week and have not yet had any issues with oxidation. It is still as sparkly as when I got it. I store it inside a pandora jewelry box. Hopefully I won’t have any problems because I absolutely love it! Forgot to add that I do not have any charms on it.
I wear mine all the time too! I have a few Rose charms on it. I don’t own a mesh bracelet as it happens, so I couldn’t tell you unfortunately, but I can see that Melissa and Deborah have offered up some feedback. I really like the dangle charm so cute I’m still yet to get last years very popular dragon.
You should totally get the dragon, Nicola! The little man dangle is a brilliant charm. I’ll grab it for sure if possible. I didn’t used to like dangles until I got a Thomas Sabo Charm Club traditional dangle charm bracelet. I have seven dangles on it right now.
Not all Pandora dangles work well for it though. When I got my first Pandora, I decided that I didn’t like the dangle charms and refused to put any on my bracelet! Now I have them on every design, as I like them to add a bit of symmetry and to break up a design. I haven’t gone for all dangles yet, but you never know! Glad you like the cai-shen charm, too, that’s the one I’ll be getting!
Recognizing how many fingers
I’m less keen on the pave for the double happiness charm. I assume the same with these charms as well? Thank you for the sneak peek! I don’t have any information on a North American release for these yet, but I’d have thought that they would make it out there at some point next year. They did just release all the missing CNY charms in the US and Canada this Autumn, so I can’t see why they wouldn’t continue with the new ones. I adore the cultural charms that Pandora releases, I think they make a nice travel charm option for some people and a wonderful acknowledgement of one’s culture and traditions for others.
Dangles are never my first choice because I am an animated conversationalist and tend to knock the poor things around. I think I will have to add this one to my collection if possible. I think either one would look lovely as a pendant or on a leather bracelet. Have you ever condsedered getting a Pandora necklace or chain? Me too, which is why I always look forward to the CNY release. I think it’s a tradition that many longstanding collectors of Pandora really value, no matter their background. Aha, I love your description of yourself as an animated conversationalist!
I find that dangles do tend to hook on to the threads reasonably often, no matter how animated my conversation is, haha. I do have a Pandora necklace chain! I used to wear it all the time but I got a Tiffany open heart necklace this year and that’s become my go-to. I love the Good of Fortune. He doesn’t really work with anything in my collection, but I do love to see the more unique and interesting selections. It looks like Pandora is introducing some red for Valentine’s Day this year, based on your photos. I like that red facetted bead quite a bit.
That might look pretty on my Christmas bracelet, if it’s the clear dark red that it appears to be in the photo. I love your CNY bracelet, Ellie. I don’t see your little piggy from a few years back, but I was sure you got one. Did he land on another bracelet?

Ah, do you mean the Piggy Bank charm with the red bow? It’s still there, it’s just tucked behind the poppy murano. Glad you like the bracelet, and thanks for commenting! I like the Double Happiness charm by itself and with the hearts.
The double happiness is a nice motif. I think the new version of it is a bit too sparkly for me, but I’d get the god of fortune dangle. I love coming on here to see new things that you’ve posted. I got myself the jingle bells ornament last week and I absolutely love it. It’s my first pandora ornament and I’ll certainly be getting the previous years!
All my friends and family love your blog! I still have the 2011 snowball one to find. The double happiness on the 2 hearts is adorable as 2018 valentine day is just 2 days ahead of Chinese New Year ! Aha, the god of wealth is very cute! I like him anyway and will buy him so that I can reflect on this mystery for always. I like the idea of you just looking down at your wrist, catching sight of his little face, and then drifting off into a reverie lol!
I think he is intended to have a moustache, but perhaps you’re on to something with the caterpillar eyebrows. Oh, I love the little guy! I hope I won’t have to jump through hoops to get him. Lion this year in the UK, so I’m not optimistic for us, but hopefully North America should get it!

I’m not a big Asian motif fan but they are cute. Yay, glad you like the hearts! It is such a shame that Pandora restricts the charms to certain regions. Hopefully, I will be able to get him with a little help of Asian ladies!

Thank you for another fantastic update. I couldn’t agree more, I think it’s a lovely charm! I hope you manage to find one, and that he doesn’t prove too elusive. I’ve been following your blog since you started the CNY charm collection, and in reflection should have bought each of the CNY charms when you did as I want a full bracelet too. It is really wonderful that you’ve been following along since way back when. A lot of the charms only retired a little while ago, so you might have some luck. I imagine the gold will push up the Cai-shen charm a bit!
Love the new twist on the Chinese doll. The gold is a nice touch. Wish I had bought the doll from 2015. I’m not crazy about the red and pink heart, but I’ve never been a fan of red and pink together. I’m hoping the faceted red hearts are as pretty in person as they appear in the picture. Hopefully, they will be a nice match for the Lion Dance charm. I like red and pink together, but it depends on the shade.
This version of the double hearts is a bit too sparkly for me, in any case! Jareds have a ton in store in New York! As ever great post, you always get the intel first. I fitrst received the china and japan dolls for real I could not believe how tiny they are in actual as against photos online.
Why is it you never reply to my comments? I’ve commented twice, and as yet no response. So sorry to hear that I missed your other comment, I would never do that intentionally! I might decide that I’m going to do half the comments on my most recent post one night, and then the other half on another. I’m going to try and do another batch of comments today, and will reply to your one here then. Which was your other comment I missed? I never thought you intentionally didn’t respond.
