16”-18” gold filled chain with subtle herringbone design. Handmade in the designer's studio in North Carolina.
All Merewif 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.
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.
