California Proposition 65 – Lead In Jewelry. The state of California has enacted a law requiring the disclosure of lead content in consumer goods, including the lead content in jewelry components. This law requires disclosure of lead content by classification, even if the material is not the metallic lead (Pb).
We at Glitz and Glamour know you're concerned about product safety, and especially about the lead content of some products. That's why we try to ensure that the products sold at GlitzOnline.com comply with all applicable safety and health requirements.
GlitzOnline.com offer some beaded Bracelets, Earrings, Necklaces that are made with crystals and other findings and metals that may contain lead. In particular, we offer leaded crystals by Swarovski.
Swarovski crystals contain lead. For more than a hundred years, Swarovski has been the world’s leading brand for cut crystal. Swarovski crystal is the culmination of merging natural materials, cut to provide ultimate brilliance.
Swarovski crystals, like most other crystals, contain lead oxide. Lead creates the refraction of the crystal with the maximum refraction at 30-32% lead content. Lead also adds to the weight of the crystal giving it a more substantial feel. Austrian Swarovski crystal contains approximately 32% lead. Full lead crystal must contain above 30% lead oxide content in order to be consider full lead crystal.
Attention California residents. Proposition 65 WARNING:
Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or reproductive harm.
