Yes, we do have nickel in our jewelry, and all jewelry contains some level of nickel. Nickel is used in fine and fashion jewelry as an alloy that enhances brilliance in the metal. lia sophia jewelry is plated with more mils of the gold or rhodium over the nickel to assure longer wear.
Most people with sensitive ears are actually reacting to nickel. For Customers with allergies, we recommend earring styles that use fish-hook, euro-wire or styles with no backing. This will allow air to pass and extend wearability.
All of our jewelry starts out with a base of white metal or brass. This is then electroplated in a gold or rhodium solution for plating color. In the gold solution, there is real gold which is electrically bonded in the plating process.
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative requiring their State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. It also requires businesses to notify California residents about significant amounts of these chemicals in the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces or that are released into the environment. California's Proposition 65 is the first and only law of its kind in the United States. Many businesses look to California's guidelines as an acceptable standard for their own operations. Effective March 1, 2008, California further DECREASED the percentage of lead that is acceptable in jewelry products shipped there. With that in mind, we conducted a detailed product review and made any adjustments necessary. When dealing with lead, the primary concern is ingestion. Understandably jewelry should never be placed in an individual's mouth.
Due to more stringent guidelines regarding lead in children's jewelry, coupled with the slight potential for very young children to ingest jewelry, we want to be clear that our products are not intended for use by children under 17 years of age. While individual states define the legal age of a "child" in a variety of ways, all states agree that at the age of 17, a person is not considered a child. Therefore, we suggest that our jewelry only be worn by those 17 or older.
As stated in our guarantee, we do not repair merchandise, but will replace it with a new item providing it is still a current item. If it is not a current line item, a merchandise certificate will be issued. Broken merchandise will not be returned.
Yes. lia sophia has always taken care to partner with responsible manufacturers who adhere to sound labor practices and maintain safe, productive work environments for their employees. And beginning January 2012, lia sophia is increasing its commitment to ensuring its supply chain is free from worker exploitation by adopting the lia sophia Code of Conduct for Suppliers. The Code of Conduct formally requires lia sophia Suppliers (i.e. manufacturers) to treat their employees with dignity and respect. This means Suppliers must now certify they are providing employees with a safe and healthy work environment; that they are paying employees fair wages; and are prohibiting child and involuntary labor. Suppliers must also certify that those providing materials incorporated into lia sophia products comply with the lia sophia Code of Conduct. To ensure compliance, lia sophia will train its supply chain management on the perils of human trafficking and slavery and on how to mitigate the risks of these activities within the supply chain. Further, lia sophia will engage in monitoring activities including unannounced, on-site inspections of manufacturing facilities, employer-provided housing and employment-related documents and will take swift and appropriate action against any Supplier who fails to meet lia sophia standards.
