"Clean. Simple. Stylish. Cool, calm and collected. The rings, charms, necklaces and bangles from the PANDORA Wish collection share a design story based on allowing women to make a statement by wearing their wishes for all to see.
Based on the iconic wishbone, and its symbolic meaning, the shape represents hope, ambition and promise. We've taken this shape and infused it with a more modern symbolism to make it represent not only personal wishes, but personal style.
A Symbol of Dreams
A wishbone is a small bone that sits between the neck and the breast of a bird, similar to a collarbone, bringing balance to the bird when flying and landing. It has long been considered a good luck charm, collected by different cultures over the centuries.
Yet, stopping at a recognizable icon was not enough for us. We added a modern twist to the classic wishbone arch by pulling inspiration from one of our own PANDORA icons – the heart shape. Our PANDORA Wish wishbone shape follows the top curves of the heart and the V-shaped base.
"It’s a special and recognizable shape and it gives you the freedom to explore and play with your style, being yourself. It has a modern, fresh look for women to embrace.”
-Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli, VP Creative Directors, PANDORA
A modern symbol for modern style
While the symbolism of the wishbone was our inspiration point, we have transformed the recognizable wishbone into stackable styles that create elegant chevrons, which can add a level of sophistication to any wardrobe.
A wishbone collier necklace can lengthen and draw attention to a neckline. Create waves of style across your fingers, and a beautiful flow of details with wishbone rings in contrasting tones and oval rose-cut stones. The PANDORA Wish collection is about wearing your wishes and bringing them alive to create a beautiful expression.
The art of the craft
With the PANDORA Wish collection, we wanted to raise the bar for jewelry excellence through craftsmanship and innovation. Therefore, we took the lines of our original wishbone ring and translated them into fresh interpretations which span all of our jewelry categories.
"This collection is about personal style and mixing. Women can combine the jewelry however they wish to create something unique to them, playing with directions, textures and tones.”
- Francesco Terzo and A. Filippo Ficarelli, VP Creative Directors, PANDORA
We have designed our new wishbone collier necklaces with both style and wearability in mind. A sliding clasp with a hidden silicone element makes it possible to adjust the length of the chain while wearing it, and it will stay in its new position.
