Low Lead Rhinestones-Information

 

 

Some information about Lead in Rhinestones:

We are NOT saying you cannot do as you want with personal clothing. Your kids do not eat their clothing. Costumes are worn for a few minutes, then removed. Tee shirts are really not hazardous unless you eat them, and even then, you must be relatively young for anything that MIGHT happen (some of us are far more sensitive to elements and compounds than others) to happen.
However, manufacturers and those who RESELL clothing need to familiarize themselves with laws regarding lead in the states they operate in or sell to.

 

Lead Crystal jewelry does not damage adults. Lead Oxide, used in producing Lead Crystal, is actually encapsulated in silica (melted sand) and relatively safe unless subjected to highly acidic conditions for extended times.

BUT to Infants and young 'ins....please take no chances...it is not your body, not your children's children's bodies to make decisions for. Play it safe! Lead is a chemical known to the State of California and other governmental agencies to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

All Lead Crystal Rhinestones contain lead AND significant amounts of it! It is considered totally safe for adults in jewelry and rhinestones on clothing.

Truly Lead-Free Rhinestones do not exist, but in Low Lead rhinestones the amount of lead in these items will be well below required levels.

Lead Crystal (noun)
Definition: "glass for making tableware: glass containing a high proportion of lead, used to make decorative items, especially tableware".
