LaurenElan.com jewellery is entirely hand-crafted and requires delicate handling. Due to the nature of the designs & materials used, certain parts may shift and reposition over time. This is expected and lends to the uniqueness of each item. Please note that certain oils, body lotions, tanning products, and other skincare formulas may discolour or tarnish the delicate metals and fabric details. Chlorine should be avoided with all LaurenElan pieces. Allowing an item to sit in a damp place (ie. a wet counter) will most likely damage the metal, please take care. It is recommended that after wear, LaurenElan items are gently wiped down with a soft cloth and carefully returned to their velvet bag and protective box for storage. Several of our metal items will tend to oxidize with wear over time, polishing with a soft cloth is recommended to regain the shine.
