Materials + Care
All Laura Lombardi Jewelry items are constructed by hand in New York City, using a combination of new and repurposed metals; including but not limited to: vintage and new brass materials, gold plated brass, white bronze, surgical steel, 14kt gold and sterling silver earring posts. Due to the nature of vintage materials, very slight variances in color or marks of age may be present in your jewelry. Please expect the color, texture and tone of your piece to vary slightly from the items depicted in photographs.
In some cases brass jewelry can acquire a darker color/patina with frequent wear. To prevent patina, wipe your jewelry down with a polishing cloth and store in a secure and dry place after each wear. If you wish to remove patina, simply use a jewelry polishing cloth to wipe down the piece of jewelry, or a polishing pad to gently buff deep and stubborn patina from the surface of your jewelry. Do not buff or wipe gold plated jewelry with abrasive materials like the ones mentioned above.
Each piece of jewelry is constructed by hand and therefore is very delicate. Please care for your jewelry by keeping it out of water, not wearing it whilst showering or exercising, and by keeping it in a secure, dry place in between uses.
Repairs are accepted, and are subject to a fee depending on the nature of the damage. For further information on caring for your jewelry and repairs, please contact us at shop@LauraLombardi.com
