Permanent jewelry is seamlessly connected to encircle your body. Its links are closed and welded together without a clasp, so that the jewelry stays on until it is deliberately removed. A permanent bracelet, anklet, or necklace is meant to be worn all the time. It’s crafted to be a memento that looks good day and night with dressy and casual clothes.

To get a permanent adornment for you or a loved one, you will need to make an appointment to find and custom-fit each selection. A skilled jeweler will help you choose the right piece, take measurements to ensure a perfect fit, and attach the jewelry to the body. This ensures that the jewelry will stay on without sliding or catching on clothes or other objects. Once the piece has been prepared, the jeweler will use high heat to weld, or "zap," the metal and close the chain of links. The process is fast and painless because the heating tool never touches the skin. After the jewelry is attached, it should stay on until it is cut off with shears, snips, scissors, or some other tool.

Permanent bracelets, necklaces, and anklets are fairly durable, but they should be treated with care. If the chain stretches or breaks, it may be possible to reattach it. Otherwise, it will need to be replaced. When it comes to permanent jewelry, there are many options to choose from. Take a look at our guide to find a perfectly suitable chain. The process can always be undone.
