Permanent jewelry is where we make a custom fit bracelet using a solid gold chain that is welded together on your wrist with a quick and painless Pulse arc welder. There is no clasp to use, so it says on your wrist as long as you want! We have multiple chains to choose from, as well as a variety of charms and connectors to make your piece truly one of a kind.
Why permanent jewelry?
Permanent jewelry is a fun experience and a perfect way to celebrate a friendship, relationship, milestone or special occasion! It is also a great option to wear your pieces every day without ever forgetting to put them on or having trouble putting the clasps on yourself.
Do I need to have an appointment?
We work on a walk-in basis - no need to book an appointment! If there is a particular chain or charm you want, please call ahead to make sure we have it in stock. We aim to always have everything in stock; however, chain and charm selection can vary from day to day. It’s best to have a few chains selected in case your choice is out of stock.
Does it hurt?
No, it does not! The welding process is completely safe. We use a special spot-welding machine that welds the chain together in a flash of light. You are given protective eyewear to wear during the process, or you can look away during the flash. The welding process never touches your skin so you will not feel a thing!
How long does it take?
The welding flash itself is instantaneous! Including custom fitting your chain and adding any charms, it is approximately a 15-minute process.
What is the cost?
We only use solid gold. Chain prices range from $99 - $225. Charms and connectors are extra and range from $39 - $85. For those wishing not to have the piece be permanent, clasps are available for $28.
What if I need to take it off?
Your piece is as permanent as you want it to be! Simply use a sharp pair of scissors or wire cutters to cut the small ring that connects the chain together. Please do not cut the chain to preserve the integrity of the bracelet as it can be re-welded together again, or we can add a clasp in the future. If you need any help, please stop by and we will be more than happy to help you remove it!
How long does permanent jewelry last?
Our chains are only made from solid 10k and 14k gold. We never use any plated or vermeil chains to ensure longevity. Therefore, they will not change colour or tarnish. The durability of permanent jewelry varies according to the lifestyle of the wearer. It’s made to last, however, since this is a delicate product, it is not indestructible. The term “permanent jewelry” refers to a piece that is clasp-less (we know the name the industry came up with is confusing!) We suggest a proper fit where the bracelet is snug with enough room to fit the width of a finger to allow for movement. A loose fit has more chance of catching on things.
What is your warranty?
We understand that sometimes life happens! If your bracelet falls off at the weld point within the first 90 days, we will be happy to re-weld the bracelet. After 90 days, we are happy to re-weld it for a small fee. If you break the bracelet at any point other than the weld, we are happy to re-weld it for a small fee as well. If the permanent jewelry option is no longer working for your lifestyle, we are happy to add a clasp for a fee of $28. We are always happy to help, so please come by or e-mail us with any questions or issues!
I love the idea of a custom fit and designed bracelet, but don’t want it to be permanent. Is there an option for me?
Yes! We can still create a custom-fit bracelet and add charms or connectors, but instead of making it a permanent piece, we can add a clasp for $28.
Can I travel with my piece? What if I need a medical procedure?
Travelling with permanent jewelry is not a problem. Delicate jewelry does not have to be removed for airport security.
Please consult with your doctor regarding having your pieces on during any MRI or other medical imaging or surgeries. If your doctor requires you remove it, please contact us and we can re-weld it at a later date.
Can I bring my own chains to be welded?
Yes! We are happy to help you recycle your gold pieces. For a $50 fee we will create a permanent bracelet from your piece.
Do you offer returns?
No. Your piece has been custom fit for you and therefore is final sale.
Is permanent jewelry for everyone?
For the most part, yes! If you have a pacemaker, we advise not to get permanent jewelry due to the welding process. Also, we do not recommend permanent jewelry for those with skin sensitivities to gold. As permanent jewelry involves delicate chains, those that are very hard on their jewelry or have risk of work-related injuries (ie. working with heavy machinery) should not get permanent jewelry. We have a clasp option that is available in such instances.
Can minors get permanent jewelry?
Permanent jewelry is available for those 13 years and older. Minors under the age of 18 require a parent or guardian present.
Do you host private events? Can you come to my event?
Yes! We love hosting in-store parties and events. We can also travel with our permanent jewelry offerings and welder to your private event! Please contact us to plan your event. We offer incentives for large party bookings.
