About Trollbeads

Trollbeads started life in 1976 in Denmark and is the original beads-on-bracelet concept. 

Trollbeads is an exquisite set of interchangeable jewellery pieces. At the heart of the collection are the beads themselves. Each piece in the Trollbeads collection has its own little history, taking its inspiration from mythology, astrology, fairy tales, nature, spirituality, cultural diversity, and last but certainly not least, in the familiar things of everyday living. 

Personalize your own unique bracelet, bangle, necklace, ring or earrings by adding beads that fits your style, memories, interests and personality. 

Trollbeads jewellery is made from the highest quality raw materials, including 18-carat gold, Sterling silver, Italian glass, freshwater pearls, amber and precious stones, and is created from a blend of traditional and modern techniques. 

People are made of stories – some are defining and some are just for fun. Great stories come from those experiences that are all about the present. Where there is no 'but', only 'be'. 

Every story has a bead.
