Laughing Sky Designs™ jewelry is meant to be worn and enjoyed. All of our materials are of the highest quality, but like any fine jewelry, a bit of care and cleaning is required to keep it looking good for years to come. We recommend that you do not regularly sleep or shower with them on. This could eventually cause them to dull or break. Also, try to avoid immersing in chlorinated water or harsh cleaning solutions.
Metals: Sterling silver and other metals such as copper will gradually darken and tarnish over time. To return them to their original glow, use a soft polishing cloth. We do not recommend using cleaning solutions or dips since this can damage non-metal parts and remove patinas from the metal.
Stones, pearls and glass: Washing your jewelry in warm soapy water and drying with a soft cloth will take care of most situations. If an item needs a bit more help, a small amount of toothpaste and a soft toothbrush will usually do the trick. Pearls and soft stones, such as turquoise, should only be washed in warm water with no abrasive.
