Jewellery consists of small decorative items worn for personal adornment, such as anklets, arm cuffs, bracelets, brooches, chains, crowns, cuff links, decorated hair accessories, rings, earrings, necklaces, pins and rings. Besides valuable jewellery, costume and fashion jewellery also gains great popularity among consumers by its reasonable price and exquisite design.
It is essential to confirm safety of jewellery as it always comes into direct contact with the skin. Countries impose stringent requirements on toxic and hazardous substances in jewellery, especially children's jewellery. For instance, Europe, the United States, Canada, Japan and China have established regulations and standards for jewellery on the market. C&K Testing is devoted to helping enterprises to comply with different regulatory requirements across the world.
