How should I wear my Apartment 5B necklace?
5B necklaces look great long or short as chokers, as tight as you can bear. We suggest tying the cord as a double knot bow to keep it firmly in place.
How do I care for Apartment 5B jewellery?
See our Care Guide for information on how to maintain the luxe look of your 5B jewellery piece.
How do I tighten the cord of my Apartment 5B neckpiece?
It’s natural for your neckpiece cord to loosen over time. This can be tightened at the 5B washer on the underside. Simply pull the cord tightly apart sideways on either side of the washer to ensure a firm fastening. When wearing your 5B neckpiece, we suggest tying the cord as a double knot bow to keep it firmly in place.
How is buying Apartment 5B jewellery good for the planet?
Sustainable and ethical practices are what we do. They’re cemented into the Apartment 5B foundations. We upcycle and repurpose wherever we can. We intercept excess industrial materials destined for landfill and source vintage and everyday items, refashioning them into coveted objects of beauty. By choosing a 5B original over other accessories made solely with virgin materials, you’re helping to conserve our planet’s natural resources, reduce landfill and reduce carbon emissions.
Our packaging is proudly plastic free and we use Sendle for all of our deliveries, a 100% carbon neutral delivery service and certified B Corporation.
Are Apartment 5B jewellery pieces of the same style exactly the same?
Because we upcycle and repurpose materials, 5B jewellery pieces are imperfectly perfect. Expect colour, tonal and textural variances and even signs of our material’s first life (like manufacturer markings). These are intended and shouldn’t be considered flaws. They’re all part of the 5B aesthetic.
Are Apartment 5B jewellery pieces the same colour as shown on your website?
While we try to photograph our jewellery as true-to-life as possible, we can’t guarantee a 100% colour match. Colours tend to appear differently on different monitors and devices.
Do you make custom designs for special events and clients?
Yes, we can design one-off B.spoke 5B neckpieces. These are POA. Please email us with your request.
