Pandora launches new The Little Mermaid collection 

by Tania Griffin

Pandora has captured the essence of universal friendship and spirited curiosity with the launch of its Disney The Little Mermaid collection, featuring seven designs that bring to life the new perspectives of the reimagined classic – championing female empowerment and independence.

Pandora SVP creative directors A. Filippo Ficarelli and Francesco Terzo were inspired by themes explored in the new film adaptation, shaping a collection centred around Ariel’s inquisitiveness and sense of freedom. The designers created seven individual styles including charms, rings and earrings synonymous with the story’s treasured characters.

The unique designs combine intricate techniques with coloured lacquers and stone settings of man-made pearls and cubic zirconia – for a collection that captures the spirit of iconic characters Ariel, Sebastian and Ursula.

Each piece features Pandora’s signature craftsmanship in solid sterling silver or with 14K gold plating, featuring colourful design details that bring each character to life. Charms from the collection can be stacked and styled with Pandora Moments Studded and Snake Chains.

Highlights include: the Ariel dangle, crafted in sterling silver with an iridescent mermaid’s tail; Sebastian and Ursula dangles in sterling silver – representing the film’s favourite sidekick and infamous villainess, each crafted with lacquered man-made pearls; and a textured seashell charm that shines with 14K gold plating.

Playful layers of storytelling are unlocked through the design details and hand-finishing of each piece. “Our inspiration was drawn from the diverse characters and friendships that empower Ariel’s story,” Ficarelli says.

“We wanted to be true to the live-action film as well as give the pieces a more naturalistic representation. With the Sebastian charm, for example, one claw is bigger than the other, just like real male crabs,” Terzo says. “And Ursula is such an iconic character in The Little Mermaid. We chose to amplify and at the same time simplify her representation, choosing a deep purple lacquered artificial pearl to finish the piece.”

With a collaboration soon into its 10th year, Pandora continues to craft and share treasured Disney classics by reimagining them into wearable stories for consumers. The new The Little Mermaid collection represents the company’s shared values, and highlights Pandora’s efforts to empower its community to express themselves through personalisation, allowing them to reflect who they are.

Pandora and the studio will reach 10 years of collaboration next year. The world’s largest jewellery brand, its hand-finished jewellery crafted from high-quality materials offers endless possibilities for personalisation – empowering people to express their personal style through its pieces. 

Empowering people, and in particular women and girls, sits at the core of Pandora’s brand values. In realising this mission, Pandora supports global charity partners like UNICEF which have aligned values to work toward supporting more women and girls to fulfil their potential. Since 2019, Pandora and UNICEF’s partnership has directly reached more than one-million adolescents and youths, of which a minimum of half a million are girls.
