If you are like me, and you love silver charm bracelets, but can't quite wrap your head around the cost of either the modern ones, or the vintage ones, there is hope in sight! Introducing Soufeel 925 silver charm bracelets whose charms fit both Pandora and Chamilia bracelets, but are much more budget friendly. I had for many years thought about starting a silver charm bracelet for my daughter, you know the traditional ones, which I just LOVE, but when I saw the price of individual charms, I realized that down the road her beautiful charm bracelet would end up being worth at least a thousand or so bucks, and that did seem quite ridiculous.
So when Soufeel contacted me about choosing a charm bracelet and charms for myself to review here, you can certainly bet I jumped at the chance to quiet that little voice in my head that keeps whispering to me about charm bracelets! What I didn't expect is that I would become slightly addicted to looking on their website to see what new designs they have introduced and what charms are on sale! (And I may or may not have already placed two orders for some presents for my daughter, nieces and little me.)
I do happen to think that a charm bracelet is a fabulous gift, and especially if you plan to add to it over time! You could buy a bunch of charms with a plan for giving them over the span of a year or so, or even better, how about doing a countdown calender or 8 nights of Chanukah calendar with little pockets each filled with a charm, now that is something I would love, wouldn't you?
I really had a difficult time choosing charms, as there are really so many to choose from, and of course there was a budget! In the end I choose symbols with sentimental value, a few beads in colors that I love, and I made sure that roughly half the charms would be dangling ones, for that charm bracelet look. And I told myself, don't worry too much as the charms are so easily interchangeable you can always take some off or add some, or start a second bracelet for your daughter, right?
And that dear readers is exactly what I did! Introducing mother/daughter interchangeable charm bracelets, with charms that you can trade depending on your mood, or the color of your outfit. And now that my daughter will need some charms to trade with me, I guess I better go order her some!
That is it for my review of the soufeel charm bracelet, and I'll end with two little tips:
1.I was thinking that the bracelet could really use a safety chain, (though the clasp is very secure and easy to put on with one hand) and then I realized that those double charms joined by a chain which I didn't quite understand are just exactly that, silly me, now I'm off to see which ones I'll need to add to my next order!
2. The charms do have dimension to them, which makes the bracelet fit more tightly on your wrist when it is filled with charms. So while the website says to measure your wrist and add 1cm, I would only do this if you want a very tight bracelet. Add at least 2 cm to your wrist size and maybe even 3cm for a loose bracelet.
