Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
Merah, an online earring boutique that specializes in affordable and stylish nickel-free earrings, has teamed up with jewelry designer Micah Yancey to premiere “BonBon By Micah Yancey for Merah.”
ShopMerah.com now features a total of 16 BonBon By Micah Yancey styles from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection, priced from $48-$98. Each BonBon by Micah Yancey for Merah style is assembled with hypoallergenic earring hooks made from a metallic element that is 100% nickel-free without any impurities, similar to solid gold, but for a fraction of the price.
“I’ve always admired Micah’s BonBon line but could never wear any of her gorgeous earrings due to my sensitive ears,” said owner Meredith Budwin, Merah. “I’m excited to partner with Micah to introduce nickel-free versions of her amazing signature earrings on the ShopMerah.com site.”
Micah, who began designing jewelry for herself and her friends while she was in college, deeply appreciates fashion, which influences her desire for high quality, style, and design of each of the BonBon jewelry pieces. Micah’s design principles center on the idea that jewelry should be simple, clean, well-made, sophisticated and aligned with current fashion trends – all of which are exquisitely displayed through the BonBon collection.
She admires beautiful and unique brightly colored semi-precious gemstones and carefully hand-selects each stone for the various pieces. Many of the stones in this line look delicious enough to eat, which explains her inspiration for the name, BonBon, which means “candy” in French. The materials used in the collection include unique vintage items to add delicate detail to her designs. To stand behind her unique statement, each piece is handmade and no two pieces are exactly alike.
Launched in June 2011 and recently featured by DailyCandy, Merah provides affordable and stylish nickel-free, hypoallergenic earrings for women with sensitive ears. The website http://www.shopmerah.com is the first known online earring boutique dedicated to helping women with sensitive ears wear the latest styles without the irritation of traditional nickel-based earrings found in department stores and online fashion outlets.
