We carry Energizer batteries, which are 100% mercury free, and are also made in the USA.
What does this mean to you?
Traditionally, mercury was used in the manufacturing of nearly all batteries. Mercury is highly poisonous. It can cause neurological damage that can lead to insanity and death.
Starting in 1989, Energizer began eliminating mercury from some of their forms of batteries. It wasn't until 2008 that they were able to completely eliminate mercury from every battery they produce.
Many states are banning the sale and use of batteries containing mercury. Even though Ohio has yet to ban them, we believe it is important to the environment and to our customers, so we only carry Zero-Mercury Energizer batteries.
It is a good idea to have a professional jeweler inspect your jewelry at least once a year, but in between, learning to inspect your own jewelry for potential problems can save you thousands of dollars.
It is best if you use magnification. A 10 power loupe is a great tool to have when you own jewelry. You can also use your digital camera’s macro setting to take a picture and then enlarge the picture on your computer screen. Here is what to look for,
