Jewellery Care


  1. Tribe Amrapali jewellery is special and completely hand-crafted in our workshops. Our contemporary designs showcase rich Indian heritage.
  2. Tribe Amrapali vintage jewellery is unmarked by us in order to preserve its authenticity.
  3. Your jewellery should be stored in a dry place away from humidity, moisture and extreme temperatures.
  4. Rings and bracelets should be worn sparingly to avoid damage through impact.
  5. DonĀ“t forget to remove your rings when washing up or showering, as soap particles may become lodged in stone settings and crevices. Soaps can also leave a film over metal and stones, creating a dull appearance.
  6. Store your jewellery in its own box or pouch to prevent scratching, chipping and entanglement.
  7. All Tribe Amrapali silver is hand polished before sale. Exposed to the atmosphere, all silver is prone to oxidation and consequent tarnishing.
  8. Gentle rubbing with a silver cleaning cloth will restore the original brilliance of the surface.
  9. Do not use liquid cleaners for carved silver jewellery as the liquid dries into the engraving.
  10. If you wear your gold-plated silver jewellery for significant periods of time, the plating will eventually wear down. To restore its appearance, you can have it re-plated.
  11. Make sure your jewellery is not in regular contact with hard surfaces, which will scratch or wear down the plating or enamelling.
  12. Never use detergent, soap, toothpaste etc to clean your gold jewellery.
  13. When dressing, jewellery should always be put on last as make-up, cosmetics and perfumes can cause damage to delicate items.
  14. All stone jewellery requires extra care and consideration during wearing to protect the setting as well as to safeguard the diamond or gemstone it holds.
  15. Rose cut diamonds are unique diamond cuts with a distinctive vintage feel. These are set in very delicate settings, often set with a silver foil back for extra sparkle.
  16. Kundan is the oldest surviving form of jewellery made and worn in India. It is an elaborate process of setting, which is made of 24ct gold.
  17. Navratana or Nine gems jewellery is made up of 9 different gemstones, one symbolising each planet. It is often used for astrological purposes.


  1. With proper care, gold can be enjoyed for a lifetime and passed down from generation to generation. To protect your gold jewellery, avoid exposing it to household chemicals like bleach or ammonia. Jewellery should not be worn in the shower or while swimming in a pool, lake, or ocean.
  2. Cosmetic and beauty products such as makeup, perfume, hair spray, lotions, and sunscreens can tarnish and damage your jewellery. Because of this, we recommend you to put on your jewellery after you dress. All gold jewelry is sold with a signature anti-tarnish pouch.
  3. When not being worn, store your jewellery in its original anti-tarnish pouch to avoid metal tarnishing. Store each piece of jewellery separately to avoid scratching.
  4. Precious metals like 18k gold and sterling silver will naturally tarnish due to air exposure and other elements found in the environment. For light cleanings, we recommend using a non-abrasive jewellery polishing cloth to gently remove tarnish from the jewellery.
  5. Your jewellery should not be stored in or near any object containing leather (leather handbag or wallet) or sulfur, as both leather and sulfur will cause jewelry to tarnish more rapidly.
