Packing, Product Production, and Care
How is my order packed?
At our small business, we understand the importance of making every order feel like a special and thoughtful gift, whether it is for you or someone dear to you. That's why we go the extra mile to ensure each order is meticulously packed and presented.
To begin with, we carefully pack each order individually using microfiber bags. These soft, resilient pouches protect your jewelry from scratches, dust, and minor damages, and they can later serve as a convenient storage solution to keep your jewelry pieces looking as good as new for years to come.
For orders $100+ are packaged in a premium gift box which makes the unboxing experience truly delightful while offering an upscale appearance that is perfect for any gifting occasion.
In addition to the protective packaging and impressive presentation, our necklaces are all handmade and small-batch, which ensures that each piece is truly unique and of the highest quality.
Every order is personally presented and ready to delight both the giver and the receiver. Our commitment to providing exceptional gift packaging is just another way we strive to create memorable and meaningful experiences for our valued customers.
What is the jewelry made of?
Our exquisite jewelry collection is primarily crafted from Gold-Filled or Gold Vermeil materials, a 14k or 24k gold layer plated over a sterling silver base.
What is gold-filled?
Despite what the name suggests, gold-filled is not actually filled with gold, but rather features an exterior layer consisting of gold. We are proud to say that all our pieces are nickel and lead-free.
This innovative technique not only forms a surface-level layer of gold, but also results in the fusion of gold and the base metal, producing a highly durable and damage-resistant material. The considerable thickness of gold in gold-filled pieces ensures that the jewelry remains resistant to tarnishing, chipping, and other common wear issues. When cared for properly, gold-filled jewelry can maintain its stunning appearance and overall integrity for years to come.
How to Properly Care for Your Meraki & Moon Jewelry
At Meraki & Moon, we want all our customers to be able to enjoy their beautiful pieces for years and years - which is why we believe proper care is key! By following simple steps like avoiding exposing the jewelry to harsh chemicals, regularly cleaning it off, and storing it away correctly - you'll be able to extend the life of your favorite Meraki & Moon pieces!
Is Your Jewelry in Contact with Chemicals?
It's important to keep in mind what kind of activities you might be doing while wearing your jewelry. Exposure to harsh chemicals like chlorine, salt water, lotions, perfumes, oils, and cleaning products can cause discoloration over time. So if possible, remove your pieces before engaging in activities such as swimming or cleaning.
What Residue Stays on Your Jewelry?
Every now and again, it's a good idea to give your pieces a quick clean - simply wipe them down with a soft cloth dampened with warm water and mild soap. This will help remove any residue from the air or skin contact that may have accumulated on the jewelry over time. Make sure to dry the piece thoroughly when finished cleaning before storing away.
How Should You Store Your Pieces?
Each order includes microfiber bags, which can also be used for storage. When not being worn, store your jewelry in an area away from humidity or direct sunlight, as these can cause discoloration over time.
