The present situation of jewelry making supplies in Alloy metal
Referring to the metal products in the jewelry manufacture, there are two metals widely used, Zinc Alloy and Lead Alloy. Zinc Alloy is an environmental and healthy metal alloy while Lead Alloy is hazardous. Only looking the appearance, we can hardly distinguish these two kinds of alloy for they are too similar.
On our site, you can find all of our Alloy items listed are Zinc Alloys which are Lead Safe. This means our Zinc Alloy products are healthy to wear, while sometimes may not be so shiny compared with others which may contains excessive lead.
For your reference, the Lead test report of our products is shown below!

Though, as I mentioned above, Lead Alloy and Zinc Alloy are hard to distinguish only from their appearance, there are still some easy ways to identify. The following passage will guide you to distinguish these two kinds of Alloy.
How to different Lead Alloy from Zinc Alloy
Differ from surface: lead is a metal has relatively soft texture than zinc, that is to say lead can be molded more convenient and faster than zinc, and it can be used to form more intricate shapes, smooth and beautiful products than zinc metal. (Below is a picture for your reference)
(“1” is Lead Alloy: shiny, smooth; “2” is Zinc Alloy: dull, unsmooth)
Differ from casting:There are two crafts in casting manufacturing which are die casting and casting. In the casting manufacturing field, the casting is used wider than the die casting, and the Lead Alloy seems more light and shiny after casting than Zinc Alloy, while Zinc Alloy only in die casting way can it looks smooth and light.
Differ from prices and health effects:Lead Alloy products are cheaper than Zinc Alloy ones in the jewelry market, however, Lead Alloy is toxic and jewelries containing lead may result in very serious health effects to wearers. But jewelries manufactured with zinc are safe to wear.
To sum up:
- If you find and have bought the more beautiful and exquisite products in a cheap price, undoubtedly, they are Lead Alloy items which weigh more and harm to your health if you wear they for a long-time.
- We work very hard to make sure the products we sell are all Lead Safe, so you don't have to worry and just feel confidently to buy from our items! As we are always a reliable and responsible leading online wholesale supplier, we make every effort to provide good quality, safe material to our customers so that customers can use our products safely and confidently, and we warmly hope to build the long-term and friendly business relationship with dear you.
