Permanent Jewelry

What is permanent Jewelry?

Permanent jewelry (also known as forever bracelets, infinity jewelry, welded jewelry, zap jewelry, etc.) is delicate-yet-durable chain bracelets or anklets that are closed with a precision jewelry welding tool instead of a traditional clasp.  They are custom fit to your wrist or ankle, painless to attach, and can be customized just to your liking!

Permanent Jewelry FAQs

I have sterling silver and gold-filled chains available for walk-ins and pop-ups.  14k gold is only available by special order and requires a 50% deposit and an appointment.

Prices start at $50, but your final price will vary depending on how you choose to personalize your jewelry.  Metal type, chain style, and optional charms will determine the final price.

The process is just a few steps... choose your chain, any charms you want to add, then we custom fit the piece to your body. Once the fit is perfect, the welding itself is SUPER quick! The welding usually leaves a little oxidation on the metal, so I clean that off and then you're done!

How long the whole process takes mainly depends on how long it takes you to pick out your chain and charms, but most people are done in about 20 minutes.

The chains I use are fine enough to be cut off with regular household scissors. If your jewelry breaks or you have to take it off for medical reasons, just bring the chain back to me and I will re-attach it for you!

Make it removeable

Need a clasp?

Do you love the style of permanent jewelry, but need to be able to remove your jewelry for work, sports, or sensory needs? Add a traditional clasp to any permanent jewelry piece for just $5 more!

After care

The length of time your permanent jewelry piece will stay on varies based on a lot of factors, like:

Your job
Whether you have kids and/or pets
How frequently you expose your jewelry to water and chemicals

Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about how to get the most out of your permanent jewelry piece(s):

Unfortunately it's very unlikely that your permanent jewelry piece will actually last FOREVER. How do I know? My husband is a research engineer who analyzes metal fatigue for a living. According to him, it's not a matter of IF metal will break, it's a matter of WHEN.

But don't let that get you down! Many people who get permanent jewelry wear it for years and only remove it because they choose to.

As long as you still have the chain, I will reattach it at no charge.

If your piece is uncomfortably loose or tight - no matter the reason - I can adjust it. Making chains more loose may require a small fee for additional materials added during the adjustment.
