PERMANENT JEWELLERY FAQ's
What is bonded permanent jewellery?
This is a type of jewellery where a chain is uniquely fitted onto your body to create a seamless welded piece. Unlike traditional bracelets or necklaces, there is no clasp needed. This type of jewellery is highly symbolic as a continuous chain with no beginning or end. It is becoming more popular as people use it to celebrate special relationships or commemorate important occasions.
How do I book an appointment?
We will be releasing pop-up dates and locations very soon. Join the waitlist here and keep an eye out on our socials for incoming dates. We don’t have a retail venue so will be offering in-person appointments through select retail partners and locations.
Is it safe?
Yes absolutely. We use a high quality precision welding machine specifically developed for permanent jewellery. A welding spark with a very low electrical charge fuses a link on the chain and not onto your skin. There is a bright flash from the welding. We provide you with safety glasses to protect your eyes and a patch to protect your skin. We have over 20 years experience making jewellery and have completed professional training courses where we have learned to weld safely.
What if I want it to be removed?
We understand there will be occasions that your permanent jewellery will need to be removed. Simply contact us and we can remove it for you, and we can weld it back on at a later date. If you are wanting to remove it yourself, the welding site can be cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Alternatively we can add a clasp so you can wear it more easily.
Can I play sports with permanent jewellery?
Normally fine chains are used for welded jewellery which can still break like any chain when pulled. We would recommend having a clasp so your jewellery can be easily removed for sports.
Can I wear it whilst swimming?
You can wear it in the sea or swimming pool, although there is the possibility that silver will tarnish with the salt and chlorine in the water. We recommend rinsing it in water straight after. Any tarnishing can usually be removed with warm soapy water or an anti-tarnish polishing cloth. Solid gold would be a better option.
Can I wear it through the airport?
Yes you can as precious metal chains are made from sterling silver and solid gold which are not magnetic so therefore do not set off the security alarms.
What if it breaks?
We offer a free rewelding service for permanent jewellery that has been purchased with us. If the chain has broken due to a fault with the weld, we will not charge for rewelding the piece. However if the break is in the chain links, then there will be a small charge. The complimentary repair service is valid within 30 days of your purchase.
What if my permanent jewellery breaks?
Whilst the chains are fused to last a very long time, and will last with the proper care taken, they are not indestructible. We offer a free rewelding service for permanent jewellery that has been purchased with us. If the chain has broken due to a fault with the weld, we will not charge for rewelding the piece. However if the break is in the chain links, then there will be a small charge. The complimentary repair service is valid within 30 days of your purchase.
Is there an age limit for permanent jewellery?
There is no age limit however for people under 16 years of age, they need to be accompanied by an adult. We don’t recommend permanent jewellery for young children as they are growing all the time and would ideally need to have a clasp fitted so that it can be removed safely.
Can I purchase the experience as a gift?
Yes absolutely, we offer gift vouchers which can be redeemed against any of our pieces. Please email us here to purchase.
Can I return my welded jewellery?
As this is a personalised piece of jewellery custom fitted to you, we are unable to offer refunds for welded jewellery. If you have any questions, send us a message here or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Bonded’
