Soufeel - My first ever Charm Bracelet

Dia daoibh!

Today I'm here to share with you, my first ever charm bracelet! I know, I know, where have I been!  Charm bracelets have made a huge comeback in recent years.  To me, the most appealing part about them are the personalisation.  Each person's charm bracelet is unique and special to them which makes it such an ideal gift to someone special in your life.

Soufeel were kind enough to gift me with these items and I'm so impressed with the products and overall service I've decided to share everything with you today.  If you'd like to take a look at the website >HERE< you will quickly see the array of charms they have to offer. The website is laid out beautifully with up close images of each product, which is a huge plus when trying to make your decision! Soufeel are based in the US but ship internationally and offer a 365 day money back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied.  Shipping was tracked and took 16 days, which is quite good in my experience from the US to Ireland.  My package arrived safely in a Soufeel box and came with an SGS Compliant Sterling Silver Certificate.
First off; the packaging.  Packaging , to me, is highly important, especially when it comes to jewelry and I'm pleased to report that these were beautifully presented.  It came in a Soufeel gift bag and sturdy, hard-wearing, elegant white box with turquoise box.  The packaging made the products seem quite expensive.  Sounds silly, but that was my first impression.  Each charm came in its only little individually sealed bag also.  10/10 for packaging!
Anyone who knows me, knows that my favourite jewelry items are rings.  Above, is the a ring from the Élégant Series called The Promise.  It. Is. BEAUtiuful. So simple, delicate and ideally shaped to use as a stacking ring.  I have been wearing it on its own though as I love the simplicity of it.  
As you can see, the band is made up of tiny little balls and I own nothing else like it.  The face of the ring displays a slightly ovaled, cubic zirconia stone.  The ring is crafted from 925 sterling silver so it will not turn your finger an unsightly green! It's priced at €25 and also comes in rose gold for €30.  I love it and will most definitely be looking at more from the range.
Next, moving onto the charm bracelet.  For the bracelet itself, above is Soufeel's Basic Bracelet.  It is a shiney, flex, sterling silver bracelet with an engraved clasp which snaps securely shut.  This particular bracelet is currently on offer for €29.95 and comes in a variety of sizes (I chose 18cm).
Next, onto the good stuff; the charms.  In case you can't tell, I chose these four charms myself and I think they represent me well.  
  • The vintage camera (for the vlogger in me), is currently priced at €25.  The detail to this charm is fab, from the shutter release & lens, to the shutter speed dial & film winder.  A clear Swarovski crystal fills the lens to add a little sparkle to the charm.
  • The Love Coffee cup (I love my caffeine!) is currently priced at a very reasonable €15.95. There are also 5 more tea/coffee variations of teas and coffees available too! So cute!
  • The Thailand Elephant (which is oddly my favorite animal & has a purple back - my favourite colour!) is currently priced at €20.  Again, hugely detailed, it also includes a little Swarovski diamond on the elephant's head.
  • The Letter L (my initial) and all other letters are currently just €15.95.  I didn't want my charm bracelet to appear to bulky so I decided to go for something that dangled slightly and this was perfect.  

Soufeel stock over 500 charms and I was thrilled with my selection! In particular, I have never seen such amazing copies of coffee cup or camera charms.  Like I said, personalised jewellery makes such thoughtful gifts and furthermore, charms can be bought seperately for future birthdays or holidays.
That's it.  I'm officially hooked on charms.  I will definitely be purchasing from Soufeel in the future myself, as I was hugely impressed with the quality of the products, packaging and overall service. 

Fixed rate delivery to Ireland is €5.99 (10-20 days and free on orders over €50)  Otherwise, expedited (5-12 days) is €9.95 and Express (3-7 days) is €15.95. (I have just noticed that ordering from the Spanish website >HERE< that shipping is cheaper - just €3.99!  I'll check that out and update again!
