PROP 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 other reproductive harm.

Some products such as crystals manufactured by Swarovski contain small amounts of lead. It helps make the bead’s facets sharp and precise, and gives them extra sparkle, depth and shine. Various base metal findings, chains, and charms sold by our company may also contain small amounts of lead or nickel, which are commonly used in the manufacturing process to help metal alloys flow more easily, and to add strength, weight or definition.
************************************************************************

To learn more about Prop 65 and the various classifications pertaining to lead in jewelry please refer to the following website: http://www.oehha.org/prop65.html
