California Proposition 65

At Energy Muse, we take every measure to ensure that our customers are able to make the best, most well-informed decisions for their mind, body and spirit. 

Even natural components, such as pearls and cut and polished stones, may include chemicals. Prop 65 grants California consumers the right to know which components contain lead or chemicals that are known to be hazardous, cause cancer, birth defects and/or reproductive harm. In order to be abundantly cautious for our consumers, we have decided to place this warning and information on our site. To help you better understand these issues concerning your health and safety, we’ve comprised a list of warnings, as well as CA jewelry making classifications:
