How do I place an order?

Ordering on-line couldn't be easier. Just add items to your basket using the "Add to Bag" button and your chosen items will be saved in your bag for you to purchase when you're ready.

Can I place my order over the phone?

Yes, simply contact us on the above number and have your order and payment details ready. We are available Monday - Thursday, from 9am - 5pm and Friday 9am - 3pm. 

How do I choose my bracelet size?

Ideally your Chamilia or Storywheels bracelet should be 2-3cm longer than your wrist measurement, depending on how loose or tight you like to wear your bracelet. 

Remember that with TROLLBEADS, your lock and chain are separate products. We recommend choosing a chain that is at least 1cm longer than your wrist measurement, then when you add a lock, this will add a further 2cm. Click here to view our TROLLBEADS size guide.

How do I look after my jewellery?

For silver jewellery, we recommend a drop of a mild detergent or washing powder/liquid dissolved in warm water. Using a soft toothbrush, gently brush clean the fine details of the jewellery. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry with a soft cloth. For a more polished look, you can clean your charms and bracelet with a Silver Polishing Cloth. 

The use of chemical agents is a drastic way to clean your jewellery. We recommend that you avoid using any such agents. They are especially harmful to dark silver jewellery with an oxidized (darker) finish, certain gemstones, and enamel. Please avoid wearing your jewellery in mineral baths or hot tubs as the chemicals may affect the finish.

For leather products, please avoid contact with water and do not wash with household cleaning products. If your bracelet does get wet, allow it to dry naturally. Avoid contact with perfumes, creams and sun lotions.
