In the news: Cheap jewelry goes toxic

The Ecology Center, a non-profit organization, tested 99 jewelry items priced under $10 from 14 stores around the nation, such as Glitter, Forever 21, Target, Claire’s, Walmart, Hot Topic and H&M. Out of all the jewelry, 27 of the pieces turned out to have lead at levels more than the 300 parts per million (ppm) limit for stuff geared toward kids. Chromium and nickel, toxic metals that have caused toys and jewelry to be recalled in the past, were found in 10 percent of the pieces. Over half of the products tested had elevated levels of other chemicals such as cadmium, chlorine, brominated flame retardants, arsenic and mercury.


Among the most toxic pieces discovered were pieces marketed to kids and young adults from Claire’s, Walmart, Target and Forever 21. Yikes!


Wearing tainted trinkets might be less dangerous that eating them, but that doesn’t mean it’s A-OK to keep decking yourself out in cheap charms that are potentially carcinogenic. What do you think, babes: Will this study encourage you to save your money, or will you take a chance on inexpensive jewelry?
