Frequently Asked Questions

What is your jewellery made out of?


We make use of Nickel-Free metals, as well as Anodized Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Sterling Silver to create our jewellery.. This is, however, dependent on our suppliers and item prices may vary based on which metal is used.




Is your jewellery safe for my skin?


Yes. We use Nickel-Free metals to create our jewellery, which should be safe on your skin. Do however please take extra care if you have very sensitive skin or skin conditions. All of our Nickel-Free items will be covered with a protective coating.
This coating will help prevent tarnishing or reactions that those with very sensitive skin may experience.




Where does your jewellery come from?


We hand-craft every item on our website in house. Each jewellery item, accessory, and clothing item is made by hand by one person, using mostly locally-sourced supplies.

Will my jewellery tarnish?


Unfortunately, some items will tarnish over time. This is due to the skin and metal reacting to one another. There are things you can do to limit this effect (See 'How do I take care of my jewellery'). We do our best to source metals and supplies that will not tarnish to ensure you receive the highest quality goods, however this cannot always be guaranteed.

If the item you purchased is in stock with us, we will dispatch it either the same day, or the morning after we receive your order. Our courier typically delivers within 1 - 3 working days, depending on your area. We do ship all over South Africa and the world. A custom order may take up to a week to be completed before it can be shipped, but this will be discussed in custom order emails.




Can I collect my order?

Simply mail the SKU (found on the product page) to apparitionsa@gmail.com and give us the measurement you require.




Should I wash the items?
