Metal Information at APT. 535: Crafting Worry-Free Jewelry

At APT. 535, we're constantly evolving, and we strive to provide you with as much detail as possible about the metals used in each listing. Here's some helpful information to keep in mind:

Hypoallergenic and Nickel-Free Guarantee:

While each product's metal type may differ, one thing remains constant - every metal component used at APT. 535 is hypoallergenic and nickel-free. You can purchase and wear our jewelry with complete peace of mind.


  • Chain: Our gold chains for necklaces and bracelets are electroplated brass, ensuring they are nickel-free and hypoallergenic. Thanks to the electroplating, they are also tarnish-resistant. To maintain their beauty, we recommend avoiding water and exposure to chemicals like sunscreen or perfume.
  • Clasps and Charms: Gold clasps and charms at APT 535 are made from brass, pewter, or coated with 14K gold.


  • Chains and Charms: Our silver chains and charms are crafted from stainless steel or sterling silver. All company tags, silver charms, and clasps are stainless steel. Additionally, our Silver and Gold huggie hoops are coated with 18K Gold and are nickel-free.

Vintage Pendants:

  • Some vintage pendants may consist of mixed metal alloys. Unfortunately, the material is not always indicated upon purchase. If you have allergies to Nickel or Brass, please use caution.

Understanding Hypoallergenic Metals:

It's important to note that even hypoallergenic metals can still cause irritation for extremely sensitive skin, especially in the case of earrings. Many jewelry-related allergic reactions stem from impure metals, with nickel being the most common culprit. Nickel is frequently used as a mixing metal in impure gold, such as 14K or 18K.

Our Commitment:

Our overarching goal is to incorporate the highest quality components available. We want to create jewelry that can be worn by anyone, at any time. Your comfort and confidence in our pieces are paramount.
