MEREWIF LONER NECKLACE - OPAL
The Loner Necklace is a 16” gold filled chain, with a 3mm x 6mm gold brass pendant holding a 2mm genuine opal.
GOLD PLATED JEWELLERY
All Merewif gold plated jewellery is 100% brass with sterling silver ear posts beneath the gold plate. They 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 the materials. This gold plated jewellery should hold it’s plating for years if the wearer takes proper care of the piece (see below).
GOLD FILLED JEWELLERY
Merewif use gold filled chain on certain delicate necklace styles. Gold filled jewellery 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 jewellery, this category tends to be slightly more expensive than plated or vermeil jewellery but should not be confused with solid gold jewellery.
To prolong the life of your gold plated and gold filled pieces, we recommend removing your jewellery 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 jewellery cleaner on plated items. You can polish these pieces with a damp cloth.
