Permanent Jewelry FAQ

Q1: What is permanent jewelry?
A1: Permanent jewelry refers to jewelry that is welded end to end without a clasp, designed to be worn continuously without removal for an extended period. It is typically crafted from quality metals like sterling silver, gold-filled, and solid gold to withstand daily wear. It is intended for daily wear, offering convenience and comfort.
Q2: How is claspless permanent jewelry different from traditional jewelry with clasps?
A2: Claspless permanent jewelry eliminates the need for traditional clasps, making it seamless, comfortable, and hassle-free to wear every day. Unlike traditional jewelry, it doesn't require frequent removal or adjustment. Permanent jewelry is designed for comfort and convenience. You don't have to worry about clasps falling to the front of your necklace or dealing with uncomfortable closures. Without clasps or closures, there's no discomfort, and it feels smooth against the skin.
Q3: What material options are available for permanent jewelry?
A3: We offer a range of material options to suit your preferences, including gold-filled, sterling silver, and solid 14k gold. You can choose the material that best aligns with your style and desired level of durability.
Q4: Can I wear claspless permanent jewelry with gloves?
A4: Absolutely! Claspless permanent jewelry is glove-friendly because there are no protruding or uncomfortable clasps to interfere with your accessories.
Q5: Is claspless permanent jewelry suitable for footwear like boots?
A5: Yes, claspless permanent jewelry pairs with footwear like boots better than a clasped piece. Its seamless design prevents discomfort that clasped jewelry might cause when worn with boots. Proper fitting above the ankle bone is key here.
Q6: Can I shower or swim with permanent jewelry?
A6: Depending on the materials used, many types of permanent jewelry can be worn during activities like showering or swimming. It's essential to choose high-quality materials to ensure longevity, so that’s why we source the best chain. After showering or swimming, be sure to rinse your jewelry with fresh clean water and dry.
Q7: How do I care for permanent jewelry?
A7: The beauty of permanent jewelry is how easy it is to care for. No special care is needed, but you can shine up your jewelry with a soft jewelry polishing cloth or a mild soap and water mix like blue dawn dish soap. Avoid harsh chemicals, bleach, and abrasive materials.
Q8: Is permanent jewelry safe for sensitive skin?
A8: High-quality permanent jewelry made from sterling silver, solid gold, and gold-filled material is generally safe for sensitive skin. However, it's essential that jewelry is promptly removed if any skin irritation occurs. Please let your permanent jewelry professional know if you have any skin sensitivities so you can discuss what metal is right for you, if any.
Q9: Can I change or remove permanent jewelry once it's in place?
A9: While permanent jewelry is designed for long-term wear, it can be removed with a pair of fingernail clippers. Instead of removing, most people want to add more permanent jewelry to create the perfect stack. However, we can certainly modify your existing chain to include a charm or connector.
Q10: Can I sleep with permanent jewelry?
A10: Absolutely! This is one of the best parts about permanent jewelry. There is no clasp to press into your skin, and the chains are dainty enough they feel seamless even while sleeping.
Q11: Can permanent jewelry be customized or personalized?
A11: Yes, the custom nature of permanent jewelry allows you to choose unique styles, gemstones, or designs to suit your preferences.
Q12: How do I choose the right size and style of permanent jewelry?
A12: Selecting the right size and style of permanent jewelry depends on factors such as the body part where the jewelry will be worn, your personal preferences, and any specific recommendations from the permanent jewelry professional sizing your custom piece. In general, you should be able to fit an average-sized index fingertip under your bracelet, and anklets should be sized above the ankle bone.
Q13: What should I know about caring for Sterling silver permanent jewelry?
A13: Sterling silver styles may oxidize after exposure to improperly chemically balanced pools or hot tubs. However, sterling silver jewelry has a unique characteristic: the more you wear it, the better it looks. The natural oils from your skin and the daily friction of wear will help to restore its shine. In most cases, Sterling silver jewelry will regain its luster within 72 hours of wearing. This natural process often eliminates the need for extensive cleaning or specialized products. Many customers find it adds to the charm of their jewelry.
Q14: Can I wear permanent jewelry during physical activities and workouts?
A14: Yes, permanent jewelry is designed for everyday wear, including physical activities and workouts. Its secure and comfortable design makes it an ideal choice for those with active lifestyles. Whether you're hitting the gym, going for a run, or participating in sports, you can confidently wear your permanent jewelry without concerns about discomfort or damage.
Q15: Does permanent jewelry hurt?
A15: Not at all if your permanent jewelry professional is using proper safety equipment like a leather patch barrier and requires you to wear welding glasses.
Q16: How long will my permanent jewelry stay on?
A16: Your pieces will stay on for as long as you'd like! If for some reason you would like to remove your jewelry, simply cut the chain and save it if you'd like it re-welded it in the future.
Q17: What if my chain breaks?
A17: While permanent jewelry is claspless, it is still jewelry and not indestructible. However, if it does break, please save your chain, and I'm happy to re-weld it for you at no cost. If the chain is missing, a new chain will need to be purchased.
Q18: Can I go through airport security with permanent jewelry?
A18: Absolutely! TSA does not ask you to remove permanent jewelry, so feel free to jet-set while still looking cute.
Q19: Can I get an MRI with a permanent bracelet, anklet, or necklace?
A19: This completely depends on your MRI technician. Many people have successfully gotten MRI scans without removing their permanent jewelry, unless the MRI was on the body part where the permanent jewelry was. If for some reason, you must have it removed, just save the chain and bring it back, and I will re-weld it back onto you at no charge.
Q20: Who should consider alternatives to permanent jewelry?
A20: Individuals with pacemakers should exercise caution due to the welding process involved with permanent jewelry. Additionally, while allergies to materials like solid gold, sterling silver, and gold fill are uncommon, those with known allergies to these materials should consider alternatives.
Q21: How long does each appointment typically last?
A21: Each appointment is scheduled for a convenient 10-minute duration. We appreciate your punctuality in arriving on time, as this allows us ample time to sanitize, assist you in selecting the perfect chain, custom fitting, and finally, to seamlessly apply your new favorite piece of jewelry!
Q22: Can minors receive permanent jewelry?
A22: We're delighted to offer permanent jewelry services to individuals aged 13 and above. For minors, we kindly request the presence of an adult during the process to ensure safety and consent. This policy is in line with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations, which prioritize the safety of children regarding jewelry.
Q23: Can I hire you for my next event?
A23: Absolutely! Helping people commemorate special moments or being a part of a private event is one of my favorite parts of being a permanent jewelry professional. Let's chat more about the details!
Q24: What is the return policy for permanent jewelry purchases?
A24: Please note that all sales for permanent jewelry are considered final. Once we've custom-fit, cut the chain, and placed it on you for welding, we cannot offer returns or exchanges. We take great care to ensure your jewelry is precisely tailored to your specifications, providing a unique and permanent piece that you'll cherish.
Q25: What is gold-filled jewelry?
A25: Gold-filled jewelry is created by mechanically bonding a substantial layer of solid gold to a base metal, in most cases brass. This bonding process is achieved through pressure and intense heat, resulting in a durable and long-lasting piece of jewelry. Unlike gold-plated jewelry, gold-filled jewelry does not flake or peel. With proper care, it can maintain its beauty and quality for up to 10 years.
Q26: What if I want the jewelry to be removable rather than permanent?
A26: We're happy to create a custom-fit piece with a clasp for those who prefer the option to remove their jewelry. If you later decide you prefer a permanent piece, you can come in and have it welded.
