Review - Trollbeads*

Trollbeads are bracelets that fit your style, memories and personality. They are personalised with beads of your choice to tell the story of your life through beads. Trollbeads started in Denmark in 1976!

 
 
I love the idea of having a piece if jewellery that symbolises something or someone important in your life. For me that choice was easy.

Family.

My family are the most important people on my life and why not have a bracelet with beads that represent each and every one of them.

The first step is to choose your starting point. For me this was the silver bangle but you can also pick leather bracelets, the invitation bracelet or a necklace. I decided to pick the bangle as I don't currently own a bangle and I picked silver as all my other jewellery is white gold so I thought it would match perfectly and it does. The silver bangle retails at £90.

When picking which beads you want the website breaks them down into different categories, colour/theme/designer/material and price so it makes it that little bit easier to pick. I first picked the baby girl and the baby boy bead. These are very simple but truly gorgeous beads. The baby girl bead is pink and the baby boy bead is blue. They are £35 each. The pink bead isn't quite as pink as I imagined but I love them anyway.

Next I wanted to symbolise Mark and our marriage. We've only being married 10 months so it's still quite new to us. I choose the white diamond bead to symbolise our marriage. The white diamond bead is a white bead with 13 cubic zirconias inside. I picked this one because it looks so pure. I love that a marriage so new is pure and clean. Your journey together is just beginning and for me this bead represents that. This bead is £50.

The last bead I choose was the fantasy flower bead. I choose this bead to represent me. It's girly and contains colours to represent Paige, Parker and Mark. Pink, blue and green. This bead was £25 and I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed with this bead. On the website the flowers look a lot clearer and more defined. In real life the colours are a lot more muted.

 
I think my beads all work well together along with the two silver stoppers to help them stay on. The silver stoppers are £15 each.

Overall my bracelet cost £240! I think that if you are purchasing the bracelet and beads in one go it is a lot of money but the good thing about these bracelets is that you can add beads as and when you like. You can build them up as your life changes and grows. If me and Mark were to have another child there is nothing stopping me from adding another baby girl or baby boy bead. I love that!

The quality of the bangle and beads are really good. They look great on my wrist and I'd be very happy to receive them as a present or give them as a present to someone I knew.
