HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY

Please kindly note that Apples & Figs jewellery are made of semi-precious gemstones, cubic zirconia, sterling silver, 14k-18k yellow and rose gold plated sterling silver or brass, and silver plated copper unless otherwise stated.

  • 1.   STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
  • 1.1  All Apples & Figs silver jewellery are made using 925 Sterling Silver. 

  • 1.2  We advise to not store your sterling silver pieces in damp and hot conditions, if the weather conditions require this, in this case please store your jewellery separately in air tight plastic bags to reduce the effects of discoloration and tarnish.

  • 1.3  Please keep sterling silver jewellery away from cosmetics, skin and hair products as well as perfume. These chemicals can react with sterling silver, causing them to tarnish and gradually wear away. We advise to apply cosmetic products in advance of putting on your jewellery.

  • 1.4  When removing your jewellery either before applying cosmetic products or at the end of your day, please make sure to store them in separate pouches to prevent pieces from rubbing and scratching one another. 

  • 2.  GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY: 
  • 1.1  All Apples & Figs Gold pieces are plated using 14-18k yellow or rose gold, unless specificed otherwise.

  • 2.2  We advise to always take off gold plated jewellery when applying cosmetics and perfume, when taking a shower, during intensive physical activities, bathing or swimming.

  • 2.3  We advise to remove all gold plated jewellery when asleep at night.

  • 2.4  When removing jewellery, make sure to keep them in separate pouches to avoid scratching / rubbing against one another. 

  • 3.   SEMI-PRECIOUS GEMSTONES
  • 3.1  Occasionally clean your gemstone jewellery with a soft lint-free cleaning cloth to wipe away salts and oils.

  • 3.2  When taking off your gemstone jewellery, do not pull on the stones instead remove it from the metal section.

  • 3.3  Pearls, amber, corals and any other organic gemstones sould only be wiped clean, these gems will be soft and permeable. Take extra care with your organic gemstones as chemicals, cosmetics, perfume, skin and hair products could damage and stain them easily.

  • 3.4  Opal gems also require special care, avoid using heat, ammonia, ultrasonic and strong lights.

  • 3.5  Opaque gems such as Turquoise and Lapis Lazuli may get discoloured by the use of chemicals and soap. We advise to gently wipe these gems with a moist cloth.

  • 3.6  Please have in mind that some gemstones are less harder and less stronger than some others, therefore can be more prone to scratching. Please take special care when wearing gemstone jewellery in general.

  • CLEANING YOUR JEWELLERY
    • *Sterling silver jewellery can be cleaned in warm water with some foamy soap. Make sure to fully rinse and dry before storing away to avoid tarnishing. You can also polish your sterling silver jewellery with a soft polishing cloth. 

    • *You can use soft polishing cloth to gently wipe your gold plated jewellery. We advise to not scrub or rub as this may make your gold plated jewellery wear away more quickly than expected.

    • *Please do not use any kind of aggressive cleaners to clean your jewellery.

    • *After each wear, wipe your jewellery with soft, dry, lint-free polishing cloth to remove your skin's natural oils or make-up.
