Pandora and Chamilia charm Bracelets

Both are solid sterling silver & have a barrel clasp. A few differences are with thread placements & cable flexibility. Pandora has threads on each end and two in between, while Chamilia only has a cylinder nub by the barrel clasp & a thread on the opposite end. Pandora's bracelet is stiff & less flexible than Chamilia, and I prefer the latter because of that. I also like that the barrel has the initial "C" engraved, which is for Chamilia, but it could be for Christine as well. I had chose the 7.1 in Pandora & 7.5 in Chamilia. My wrist measures at 6.75 in., & while the 7.1 fit in store, the 7.5 was more comfortable once more charms were added.

Most recently I had ordered from another online retailer, Soufeel. This company advertises European charms "compatible" to Pandora. I have been wanting safety chains for awhile & the ones Soufeel had were budget-ly priced. My order was 3 sets of safety chains, dangling "q, " "x, " & "o" charms. The sister charm & sterling silver post pearl earrings were free gifts with the order. Oh how I love free gifts!


The charms are a good size & weight & slipped right on both Pandora & Chamilia bracelets without having to thread on.
The Safety chains however did not fit on the Pandora end threads. They did fit on the middle threads, but that kind of defeats the purpose of safety chains for them to be there. A better fit was on the Chamilia end thread, but not on the nub by the barrel. Here the one on the nub has a large gap. The one on the thread has just a slight gap, & the ones on the bracelet have no gap.

It is a shame the safety chains do not fit where they should, but it was a risk ordering something that is advertised "compatible." I do like them, they sparkle nicely, were priced reasonably, & I can work around it. Shipping was free, but took a while coming all the way from China. Price wise, I didn't see a lot of savings compared to US retailers. Bella Fascini is brand I found sold on Amazon. They have decent pricing for spacer sized beads. Despite the smaller sizing, the detail is pretty intricate. I have Amazon Prime, so my orders deliver in two business days. There are other retailers as well, but I'm pretty happy from ones I have ordered from.

My bracelet so far:

Rant : my pubic bone feels like its hanging on by a thread.
Rave : my 1 year wedding anni is this Sunday, and Dh got me a Pandora Charm bracelet with a couple meaningful charms. I am not sure who the poster here was that mentioned this beautiful bracelet, but I suggested it to my DH and he thought it was the perfect gift. He was so excited about it he gave it to me early :-)
