Despite my initial disappointment with Soufeel’s delivery time the first time I ordered from them, I was determined to buy another set of charms to complete my current Pandora bracelet. And whaddya know? This time around, I received my order in just a little over a week! This time, the package came from Hong Kong.
For starters, I took a leap of faith and bought Soufeel’s pink pave charm. I already have one pink pave Pandora charm and wanted one more to have a matching pair but, as all Pandora owners know, pave charms cost quite a bit more than the normal silver charms. So yeah, despite not knowing what to expect from Soufeel, I went ahead and bought their version of the pink pave charm. The size and pattern looks so much like Pandora’s, as you can see from the pic below:
However, if you look really closely, the stones used by Soufeel (on the right) are a shade or two darker than Pandora’s. It’s not that obvious at quick glance, unless you’re borderline OCD like me who’s got hawk-like eyes that can pick out such a tiny detail. To solve the problem, do NOT, I repeat — do NOT — put the two pave charms too close together just like in the pic below, so that people won’t notice the shade difference. Just in case they’re borderline OCD like me and notice that the right pave charm is just a little bit darker than the one on the left :P
I also bought another white Spot & Swirl charm to match the one I bought last time, as well as a pair of blue spacers to use with my Pandora Fascinating Teal glass bead. (The Spot & Swirl charms are the ones right beside the Fascinating Teal glass bead.)
As you can see, the colour is not as light as it is in Soufeel’s website, but it looks good enough for my intended use even though the Pandora Fascinating Teal is, sadly, more towards the green colour spectrum rather than blue.
And for having purchased a little over $50 worth of charms, not only did I get the silver vine ‘Thank You’ charm like last time, I also got this dainty little white enamel flower charm for free!
The box that came with this order was different from the first one but still charming and elegant, all the same.
This was the invoice for my second order from Soufeel:
|Thank You Wild Vine Charm||FG-FJ1063||1||$0.00|
|March Blue Spacers Birthstone Charm 925 Sterling Silver Pandora Compatible||XS1064C||2||$27.90|

|November Daily Deal Pink Round Crystal Charm 925 Sterling Silver Pandora Compatible||NVD-LW170A||1||$12.95|

Overall, I was very pleased with my second purchase but will not be buying any charms for a while due to budgetary constraints.
