WHAT IS THE JEWELRY MADE OF?
All Paparazzi Accessories meet applicable consumer safety laws and regulations in the United States.
The metals found in Paparazzi Accessories pieces are primarily iron and include other trace minerals. Those trace minerals are made up of a metallic alloy of either zinc, steel, or aluminum. Before our jewelry is sold, Paparazzi tests its jewelry for chemicals of concern using labs that are accepted by the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission.
Paparazzi Accessories are not hypo-allergenic.
Some of the Paparazzi Accessories are made of actual leather, while others are made from synthetic leather or suede, which is a mix of plastics and fabric. It is the same type of material found in many shoes, jackets, and other apparel. While some people may be more sensitive to the smell of these items, it is not harmful. Removing the bracelets from the plastic they are packaged in will help the smell dissipate more quickly if desired.
Some of the bracelets and rings may have latex in the elastic/stretch band. Paparazzi recommends that those persons with sensitivity to latex buy the suede or leather bracelets instead.
Some of the stones in the Accessories are natural stone and some of the stones are made of powder from natural stones. When not made of stone or stone powder, many of the beads in the Accessories are made from resin, cubic zirconium, glass, or acrylic.
The best resource for describing the Accessories to a customer is to rely on the description of each Accessory as found in the Back Office.
