They are a little more expensive than the simple plain frost white Corelle (which are similarly Lead-free, as are any of the new plain white Corelle), but they also have a beautiful embossed vine-like pattern around the edges.
This product is a great example of how a company can integrate a decorative element into a dish without adding colors – via paints or glazes (which all too often can be high in both Lead and Cadmium)!

XRF technology is the same technology used by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to test for toxicants (like lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium) in consumer goods. When I tested this product with an XRF instrument readings for examples of this Bella Faenza design were as follows:
- Lead (Pb): Non-Detect/ ND (negative)
- Arsenic (As): Non-Detect/ ND (negative)
- Cadmium (Cd): Non-Detect/ ND (negative)
- Mercury (Hg): Non-Detect/ ND (negative)
All examples of this particular design from Corelle have had the same XRF readings (with this testing I have done personally.)

Here’s a more economical version of the white Corelle plates if this one is out of your budget. LINK
NOTE: I did not test the mugs that come with this exact set, so I can’t guarantee those are also lead-free. In general, the mugs that come with the Corelle sets are a different material than the plates (the mugs are ceramic vs. the glass that the plates are made of). While many of the newer mugs I have tested with these sets have been “Lead-safe” (very low Lead) or Lead-free, the majority of Corelle mugs I have tested have been positive for at least some amount of Lead. I have not yet tested enough of the new white mugs to make a recommendation across the board as to whether they are consistently Lead-free (or not.)

I could not do what I do without the support of my readers! If you would like to help make this work possible (the independent consumer goods testing & childhood lead poisoning prevention advocacy work I do) here are some links where you can do that: my GoFundMe link or my How You Can Help page.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
