Cherished Moments meets all safety requirements for CPSIA regulations. All jewelry pieces are constructed with 100% .925 Sterling Silver. We do not use any base metals which can contain lead, cadmium or other metals. All components for our jewelry are lead-free and have been tested for lead content by a certified third-party laboratory. As a result, many of the beads we use are semi-precious stones such freshwater pearls, rubies, amethyst, and pink sapphires.
We take great care in the manufacturing process to consider all safety factors. Each piece is hand-beaded in the USA by trained employees. We use stainless steel wire with a 21-pound break test. We also loop directly through the back side of the lobster clasp to eliminate the use of an open jump ring. This minimizes the chance of the jewelry breaking.
Cherished Moments also manufactures the majority of our own charms which allows us to require soldered-closed jump rings so they cannot be removed or worked loose.
As noted on packaging, jewelry could be a choking hazard and children under the age of 3 must be supervised by an adult while wearing jewelry.
Although top quality materials have been used in crafting all bracelets and necklaces, accidents can and do happen so adult supervision is important. Please remove jewelry before putting children to bed or nap time.
With safety in mind - ENJOY YOUR JEWELRY!
