The metals found in Paparazzi Accessories pieces are primarily made of are iron and include other trace minerals. Those trace minerals are made up of a metallic alloy of either zinc, steel, aluminum, or copper.
All Paparazzi Accessories are lead and nickel free. Paparazzi complies with California’s Proposition 65, which includes testing for all heavy metals. Paparazzi Accessories are not hypo-allergenic. Some of the Paparazzi products 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.
