I'm looking for lead-free jewelry for a granddaughter. Do you offer lead-free items?
Yes, we do for children 6 and over. (Artisan jewelry often cannot handle the use and abuse from a younger child.) All jewelry items which we list under Special People - Children are made from carefully selected lead-free components purchased materials from reputable U.S. sources that guarantee lead-free content.
Other handmade items listed throughout the Rose of Sharon Jewelry site may have components purchased before the increased vigilance by jewelry manufacturers for lead content. Therefore, we do not recommend these for children.
PLEASE NOTE: Many common jewelry components have a minute amount of lead content- such as Swarovski® crystals. These are certified as safe for wear and do not pose any health hazard. For additional information, see our detailed article on Jewelry Safety.
