What Is Permanent Jewelry

Permanent jewelry is exactly what it sounds like – jewelry meant to be worn for a long time, typically without ever taking it off. Unlike traditional jewelry with clasps, permanent jewelry is attached to your body using a welding technique. This creates a seamless look and eliminates the worry of losing it accidentally. Here’s a breakdown of permanent jewelry:

  • Types: It’s most commonly found as bracelets, anklets, and necklaces.
  • Attachment: A jeweler uses a low-heat welding tool to connect the ends of the jewelry piece while you’re wearing it.
  • Material: It’s usually made from precious metals like gold or platinum to ensure durability and minimize the risk of allergic reactions.

Here are some additional things to consider about permanent jewelry:

  • Not truly permanent: Despite the name, it can be removed with jewelry shears if needed. However, this would likely damage the piece and require re-welding by a jeweler.
  • Maintenance: While designed for long-term wear, it may still require occasional cleaning or repairs depending on wear and tear.
  • Pros: Offers a convenient way to wear jewelry daily without worrying about losing it. It can also hold sentimental value as a permanent reminder.
  • Cons: Not as easy to take off for security checks, showering, or if your style preferences change. Consider your lifestyle before getting permanent jewelry.
