Solid 14k Gold
We want you to have the best. You deserve it. All our chains and charms are made with solid 14k gold.
We proudly use lab grown gems in all our charms. Lab grown gems are identical chemically and physically to their underground counterparts, while avoiding the ethical and environmental concerns of mining. Looking good never felt so right.
How do I get one?
What's an appointment like?
You'll pick out your chain style and we'll cut the chain to size based on your desired fit for a bracelet, anklet, or necklace. If you're feeling adventurous you can customize your piece with optional charms. Then we'll connect the ends of the chain together and weld the link shut, resulting in the claspless jewelry of your dreams!
Effortless style. Forever adorned. Rebelliously chic. Dripping in gold 24/7. Tattoo of the jewelry world. No clasp no worries. Sized just right.
Does it hurt?
No. Our welding machine produces a tiny spark only through the gold, so its totally safe!
Can I take it off?
Yes. You can easily cut if off if you need to for any reason. Just make sure to keep it so you can bring it back to be welded on again whenever you'r ready.
All our permanent jewelry is solid 14k gold, so you don't have to worry about tarnish. For gemstone care, occasionally clean with a toothbrush, soap and water to keep it shining bright. Fine jewelry is delicate by nature. Do not pull on your chain as this may cause stretching. If you are worried about breaking your piece, we suggest choosing a heavier chain style.
Need your permanent jewelry resized or repaired? We charge a flat rate of $20 for rewelds.
We offer our permanent jewelry program at private events and parties. Minimum of 8 permanent jewelry pieces required. To request a booking, please contact us with information about your event here.
