What is Permanent JewelryPermanent jewelry is an accessory—typically a bracelet or necklace—designed to stay on indefinitely because it’s welded together rather than fastened with a clasp. People choose zapped jewelry for various reasons, just as they do with traditional jewelry. Whether commemorating a special event like a child’s birth or simply eliminating the daily task of putting on and taking off a bracelet, zapped jewelry offers a lasting and convenient option.

How does permanent jewelry work?

Getting a welded bracelet is a straightforward and speedy process. First, you select a chain and any charms you like. Our experienced jewelers then measure your wrist for the perfect fit. Once that’s done, they weld the chain on your wrist, creating a seamless piece of jewelry with no clasp. The welding is quick, especially since most chains are quite delicate. It’s as simple as choosing a piece, fitting it, and welded into place.

Types of Forever Jewelry

Bracelets: The most common form of welded jewelry is the bracelet. These are typically gold chains and may or may not include additional charms.

Anklets: Anklets function similarly to bracelets but are longer, given their placement. This length difference means anklets are often slightly more expensive.

Necklaces: Necklaces can also be made into welded jewelry. As with bracelets, they can be plain or have added charms.

Rings: Although many people wear gold bands or lab-grown diamond rings, they never take off. Permanent rings are crafted from the same thin gold chain as other permanent jewelry pieces. These rings are fitted and welded like other permanent jewelry items.

Does Zapped Jewelry Hurt?

The process is entirely painless. The welding technique used to create zapped jewelry involves heat, but it is only applied to the jewelry itself, never to your skin. So there’s no risk of burns or discomfort during the process.

Can Permanent Jewelry Be Removed?

Although designed to be worn continuously, permanent jewelry is easier to remove than a tattoo. If you need to remove it, you can easily do so by cutting the piece with scissors. And if you decide to put it back on, most jewelers who offer permanent jewelry can re-weld it for a small fee. This means that removal doesn’t have to be a one-way street—you can always have it reattached if you change your mind.

How Long Does Permanent Jewelry Last?

Permanent jewelry is designed to last as long as you want it to. Since most pieces are crafted from 10K or 14K gold, they’re non-magnetic and highly durable, offering resistance to wear and tear from everyday activities and environmental factors. With proper care, there’s no need to worry about damage; you don’t have to remove it for specific situations.

Pros and Cons

One advantage of forever jewelry is its convenience. If you wear the same bracelet or necklace every day, permanent jewelry can save you the daily task of putting it on and taking it off. It’s also a great way to commemorate a special event, celebrate a milestone, or symbolize a meaningful relationship—like a more refined version of a friendship bracelet.

However, zapped jewelry might only suit some. Permanent bracelet accessories are limited if you frequently change your accessories or prefer large, bold jewelry over subtle, classic pieces. Similarly, if you get bored easily or dislike the idea of having something you can’t easily remove, there might be better choices than permanent jewelry. Another downside is that you can’t purchase it online; you must visit a jeweler in person to get the piece welded.
