Shame you are so far away. I have an awesome set in the garage I'd give
you. I brought from the old house. Deep rich tones, like a church
bell. Just not a good spot for them here. Bought them from a local
garden shop in CT.
Try some of the garden shops and you can at least hear them before you buy.

If you have a few hours to kill, Google "make your own wind chimes"
and see hundreds of ideas, mostly using stuff you have, can get cheap
or even find in a construction dumpster.
Bothering the neighbors might be an issue but this isn't a barking dog
or a Hells Angels club house.

Okay, my 2 cents.
I have a screened porch framed in wood.
We had a bunch of wind chimes out there.
One of them was made of light sheet metal and was hung too close
to the wood framing. Before I noticed, the chime had cut a gouge
in the wood about 1/4 inch deep.
In normal operation it didn't touch anything.
In high wind it did quite a bit of damage.
So, be careful with those things.
Since we installed modern windows I can no longer hear them from inside
with the windows closed.
