#LeadFreeChoices: Wedding Set

This gold ring also contains…
5,527 ppm Mercury,
1,214 ppm Arsenic,
2,867 ppm silver,
10,066 ppm titanium, and
22,812 ppm copper.

Non-detect for lead with an XRF Instrument.

Like this ring set, most of the gold I have tested has also tested positive for mercury.
This is among the reasons I do not recommend gold jewelry.

    Would the safest gold option be 21k?

    Is white gold safer?

      No, not necessarily.

    Have you also tested white gold? I haven’t worn my ring in awhile but I’m pretty sure that’s what it is
