Trollbeads only works with natural gemstones. Not two gemstone beads look exactly the same.
Born under enormous pressure since the dawn of time, pieces of raw rocks are dug out of the crust of the earth and made into exquisite jewelry of timeless beauty. There are many gemstones in the Trollbeads collection. Apart from their sparkling beauty, each individual stone has meaning and significance. The gemstones used in the Trollbeads collection are carefully selected based on where the best raw materials can be obtained.
The same gemstones might be found several places in the world, but the colors can vary from one deposit to another. It is often the color of the gemstone that determines its quality and Trollbeads gemstones are the brightest and most interesting colors and combinations of colors.
When making gemstone beads, a small chunk of the natural gemstone is sanded by hand on a sanding wheel. As the gemstone is sanded into the right size, it is also being rounded. In the middle of the gemstone, a sterling silver core is mounted.
The exquisite craftsmanship of Trollbeads’ jewelry is only truly complete when you match the different components that tell your stories in your own personal way.
