Merewif derives its name from an Old English term for sea witch. It is an innovative yet wearable collection of handmade jewelry, taking a strong influence from the alchemistic elements of sea.
Every piece is designed by Savannah in her hometown on the Southeast coast of North Carolina and handcrafted in the United States.
We use gold filled chain on certain delicate necklace styles. Gold filled jewelry is composed of a number of layers wherein a gold alloy is permanently bonded to the brass core with both heat and pressure. Because of the permanent nature of gold filled jewelry, this category tends to be slightly more expensive than plated or vermeil jewelry but should not be confused with solid gold jewelry.
All Merewif gold plated jewelry is 100% brass with sterling silver ear posts beneath the gold plate. We use a much thicker gold plate than the industry standard, and once the pieces are plated, a protective finish is added to prolong the life of the gold plate. There is no nickel in any of our materials. Merewif's gold plated jewelry should hold its plating for years if the wearer takes proper care of the piece (see below).
How do I care for my Merewif jewelry?
To prolong the life of your gold plated and gold filled pieces, we recommend removing your jewelry when doing the following:
swimming (chlorine and salt can affect plating over time), showering, or washing your hands
applying lotions, oils, perfumes, etc.
cleaning, especially with harsh chemicals
rings when getting a manicure and necklaces/earrings when having hair treated
** Do not use jewelry cleaner on plated items. You can polish these pieces with a damp cloth.
