A (not so) long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Pandora launched a starwars-inspired collection captivating Gungans, Kaminoans and Jedi alike.
After making its debut in late 2020, the collection is now back to celebrate Star Wars Day, taking center stage for yet another year of intergalactic style.
Of course, we all know by now that 4 May is Star Wars Day. “May the fourth be with you” has been bandied about for as long as we can remember, as a clever play on the franchises famous phrase “May the force be with you”, with hardcore film fans, lightsaber lovers and even space novices all in agreement that this is the day of taxes.
So, whether you’re settling in for a movie marathon, donning a Jedi robe or going full out comic-con style dressed as Baby Yoda, this collection from Pandora may just be the long-lasting fan merch needed to show your love for starwars all year round.
From R2-D2 dangle charms and mini Stormtrooper helmets to key rings and bracelets, keep reading below for our favorite picks from the collection.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ light and dark side logo open bangle: £90, Pandora.net
To quote Yoda, “when you look at the dark side, careful you must be. For the dark side looks back”. But, with a bangle like this, we’re definitely looking. While it may look simple at first, it’s actually a very subtle nod to the starwars empire. One end is set with blue man-made crystals detailing the Rebel Alliance logo, while the other depicts the symbol for the Galactic Empire in red man-made crystals.
On the inside, Luke Skywalker’s iconic lightsaber is engraved, while the famous quote “may the force be with you, always” takes the outside. You can even add charms, too.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ Darth Vader charm: £55, Pandora.net
For those that lean towards the dark side, this Darth Vader charm is for you. Miniaturized into a quite adorable looking charm, it can be popped onto the light and dark side bangle (£90, Pandora.net), snake chain bracelet (£70, Pandora.net) or key ring (£45, Pandora.net) . It features the iconic helmet and face mask and is hand-finished in sterling silver and black enamel.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ Stormtrooper helmet charm and key ring set: £100, Pandora.net
A great option for anyone looking for a gift for a true starwars fan, this key ring and charm set is quite the buy. Unlike most of the Pandora charms that then have to be added to a bracelet or key ring, the fact that this set comes readymade is quite impressive. The Stormtrooper helmet is sterling silver, with white, black and blue enamel detailing to recreate the iconic helmets seen in the films.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ C-3PO charm: £70, Pandora.net
C-3PO is beloved by many starwars fans, meaning this gold charm is sure to top a lot of wishlists. Plated in 14k gold and hand finished with black enamel detailing and engraved grid-like eyes, the character has really been brought to life in charm form. And that’s not all, as the arms and legs are moveable, too.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ Groovy and crib charm: £45, Pandora.net
Baby Yoda, aka Grogu, captured the hearts of even non-starwars fans in an almost overwhelming response when introduced in The Mandalorian back in 2019, so we have no doubt that this charm will be melting hearts all over again. As with the majority of Pandora charms the adorable character is crafted from sterling silver and has been set in a floating crib with black enamel eyes and signature big ears on full display.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ snake chain clasp bracelet: £70, Pandora.net
The snake chain clasp bracelet is possibly the most popular Pandora item we can think of. It’s the main way for people to display the charms they have collected over the years and can even be worn on their own for a more paired back look too. so getting a starwars update with the famous logo on the clasp is quite exciting.
If you already have the regular snake chain bracelet (£55, Pandora.net) you may wish to add your new starwars charm (or two) straight onto that. But for anyone starting off on their charm collection journey, this is a great way to show your allegiance.
Pandora x ‘Star Wars’ charm set: Was £135, now £100, Pandora.net
If you’re looking to go all out with the whole starwars kit then this charm set is a great buy. Now on sale with £35 off, three charms are £100, which is quite the bargain when you consider that just one of those included would set you back £55 on its own.
Included in the set of three is the Grogu and crib charm, Yoda dangle charm and Han Solo and Leia kiss charm, for can you really have a starwars fan bracelet without two of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest leaders? We think not.
