Q:
How do I find my correct bracelet size for Trogir, Istria, Adriatica or Dubrovnik collections?
A:
Wrap a flexible tape measure or a strip of paper around your wrist, between the wrist bone and the hand. In case you have used a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen, then use a ruler to measure the length. Check the Size Guide page instructions and choose the bracelet size closer to the wrist size you have measured.

Q: I ordered from outside Croatia and I am looking on the tracking page, but there is no information available since the order left Croatia (at Zagreb). What is going on?
A: 
Please note that Croatian Post tracking service does not update the status of the orders in transit (from the moment the envelope left Croatia until the moment it arrives at the local post office in the destination country). So please do not panic if several days have passed and there are no updates published.

Q: What can I do if the size I have ordered is too big/too small?

A: We will replace your bracelet with a new one, the correct size. There can be two situations:

- If we have shipped a different size than what we ordered, we will pay for the return shipping cost of the wrong size bracelet and we will ship the correct bracelet for free. 

- If the received bracelet is the size you have ordered, but you have decided you need a different size, we will send you a new bracelet in the new required size, and you will pay for the shipping costs (both for the returned bracelet, as well as for the new size bracelet).
