How to care for your Jewellery
Most of the jewellry here at Aphrolux are demi-fine pieces made from sterling silver, stainless steel or gold plated-silver, howerer, we do have a few costume pieces that are brass, zinc alloys, or gold plated copper/zinc. These costume jewellery pieces require a little more specific care so that you may enjoy their beauty for a longer amount of time. Here's some advice on how to care for your Aphrolux jewellery.
When showering or bathing, remove any jewellery. This is especially crucial while swimming at the beach, in the sea, or in chlorinated water.
When performing physical tasks such as housework, gardening, or exercising, avoid wearing jewellery.
Never use household cleaning agents on jewellery, especially bleach and highly reactive solutions.
Spraying perfume or hairspray on gemstones or pearls jeopardises the material's integrity.
Remove jewellery before applying make-up or lotions to avoid getting the residue into the texture or gemstone setting.
Avoid high heat and humidity.
