Evergwen is by Midwinter Co.
Midwinter Co. is an engagement ring brand and shop that designs classic rings with modern, ethically sourced, rustic diamonds.
Evergwen is a branch inside of Midwinter Co.'s brick and mortar shop and studio, located twenty minutes from Philadelphia in Wilmington, Delaware.
The name Evergwen rhymes with the name Evalyn. Ever whispers of the pieces we offer - pieces that will continue their stories, they will continue being loved. Gwen was the owener's grandmother's nickname, and is a nod to the beautiful name Gwendolyn, which is a Welsh name meaning blessed.
Our mission at Evergwen is to hunt and showcase amazing workmanship of the past. We offer antiques, pieces we repair and change, and vintage jewelry to the beloved clients that have a heart for history. We chose to separate vintage from our fresh work so that clients understand the stones and metal have been loved before. The pieces we offer represent what we value - recycling, the most eco-friendly option, and the wonder behind the history.
We are part of a bigger story, a wider connection, a mission larger than the pursuit of our happiness or fulfilling our dreams. We believe we are called to reflect God's restorative mission by displaying to the world what he is like and how he loves. This is why you (no matter where you are, what you believe, or how you live your life) will be treated with kindness, respect, and honor. Life isn't about rules and earning God's favor, life is all about reflecting the love of Christ in our everyday thoughts, words, and actions. We believe that our mission is to serve God with our business by blessing others with not only the products themselves but also in the decisions, practices, and actions that carry out the inner workings of Midwinter Co. & Evergwen.
