Warning Notices


Swarovski Crystals satisfy the most important industry standards and norms:

Warning

General Warning
Loose crystals may present a small parts hazard to young children, particularly children under three years old. Depending on the size of the crystal and any attached material (such as glue, fabric, etc.), children may choke on, inhale, swallow, or insert the crystal into their noses. Magnetic products with crystal applications pose a particular risk of serious intestinal injury if ingested. The application techniques as stated in the Application Manual do not guarantee that crystals will not come loose. For each application, the manufacturer must determine whether the product meets the relevant requirements related to small parts hazards and assess any risk it may pose to small children. Failure to follow Swarovski‘s care instructions may result in damage to the crystal, which could pose a risk of laceration or other harm.

Warning

Warning for Crystal Tattoos
Crystal Tattoos may be applied on healthy skin only. Do not adhere to eyes or on mucous membranes. Crystal Tattoos are not recommended for young children. Loose crystals may present a small parts hazard to young children, particularly children under three years old. If a crystal comes loose, depending on the size of the crystal, children may choke on, inhale, swallow, or insert the crystal into their noses.

Warning

Warning for magnetic products
Loose crystals may present a small parts hazard to young children, particularly children under three years old. Magnetic products with crystal applications pose a particular risk of serious intestinal injuries if ingested. For each application of magnetic crystal products, the manufacturer must determine whether the product meets relevant requirements related to small parts hazards and assess any risk it may pose to small children.

Warning

Warning for tableware
The application of loose crystals to tableware presents a potential risk of aspiration, choking, swallowing, or tooth damage should crystals become loose. To reduce this risk, crystals should never be applied to any surface of tableware likely to come in contact with food or the mouth, and crystals should never be placed on any tableware intended for use by children. Tableware with crystals intended for decorative use only should be marked as such. To avoid dishwasher damage, tableware decorated with crystals should be washed by hand. The application techniques or suggestions in this manual do not guarantee that crystals will not come loose. For each application, the manufacturer must determine whether the product meets relevant requirements related to small parts hazards or use in food contact items and assess any risk it may pose to users.
The use of crystals (which may contain restricted substances deemed hazardous under local laws) and adhesives on tableware is subject to legal restrictions in specific countries. The customer is fully responsible for complying with these countryspecific provisions and shall defend, indemnify, and hold Swarovski harmless from any and all third-party claims based on product liability or otherwise relating to uses of Swarovski products, and waives all its own claims against Swarovski.

Unsuitable Applications
Crystals from Swarovski are intended for use in the fields of fashion, jewelry, accessories, textile products, and for interior décor. Due to their physical properties, crystals from Swarovski are unsuitable for other uses (e.g. gluing onto teeth, using on or near mucous membranes, and other unsafe uses). The customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold Swarovski harmless from any and all third-party claims based on product liability or otherwise relating to uses of Swarovski products purchased by the customer, and waives all its own claims.

Responsibility of user
Any oral, written, or test-based advice that Swarovski provides regarding techniques for the application of its products are recommendations based on Swarovski’s current knowledge and the information provided by its suppliers. Such advice does not discharge the customer from carrying out its own tests of techniques it proposes to use and their suitability for the intended application. The application, use, and processing of these techniques and products are solely the user’s responsibility.
