There are only a few days remaining until the D23 Expo 2017, which returns to the Anaheim Convention Center from July 14-16. Guests visiting the Disney Dream Store at the Expo will find official merchandise and other specialty items from Disney Parks Merchandise. I recently caught up with Clay Chaffin, merchandise product developer for jewelry, to get the inside scoop about the sparkling selection of jewelry designs being released at the event.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Disney Dream Store as it gives us an opportunity to offer elegant and stylish jewelry to our most enthusiastic Disney fans,” explained Clay. “Guests will find jewelry by ALEX AND ANI, Crislu, and Rebecca Hook. We will also have two timepieces by Bulova. Some of these items will be available only to D23 Gold Members, making them wonderful reminders of this ultimate Disney fan event.”
The ALEX AND ANI bangles are part of the “Through the Years” collection celebrating milestone anniversaries at Disney Parks. Bracelets will be available in a choice of gold or silver finishes. A bangle celebrating Oswald The Lucky Rabbit’s anniversary will also be included in the mix. These bangles will premiere at the D23 Expo and then will be released in select locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts at a future date.
The first item in a new Crislu key necklace collection was created especially for D23 Gold Members. This .925 Sterling silver with Platinum plated Mickey head key necklace contains clear cubic zirconia pave detailing and the D23 logo. It measures 20-inches in length with a 2-inch extension.
Also available for D23 Gold Members, we are releasing a sterling silver filigree castle necklace by Rebecca Hook. This item features a yellow gold plated D23 logo and measures 20-inches in length.
Three additional items by Rebecca Hook will premiere at the event. They include a Sterling silver pave castle necklace featuring blue or pink cubic zirconia stones, and a Sterling silver Tinker Bell necklace with clear cubic zirconia pave detailing. These items will be released at Disney Parks after the conclusion of the D23 Expo.
In addition to jewelry, guests will find a new collection from HARVEYS inspired by the “Through the Years” milestone anniversary collection. Look for three of the most popular silhouettes – the backpack, the streamline tote, and the coin purse.
Finally, we are debuting a new Dooney & Bourke collection inspired by Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Titled “Pumpkin King,” this collection will contain a Tote, a Wristlet and a Crossbody handbag. These items will be released at Disney Parks later this fall.
