What is permanent jewelry?
Also referred to as forever jewelry, endless chain, zapped jewelry, or welded bracelets, permanent jewelry is a unique way to honor any commitment you might be making whether to a loved one or yourself.
Looking for a special way to celebrate a birthday, bridal shower, baby shower, or anniversary?

Book your appointment NOW!

How does it work?
We offer a limited variety of fine 14k gold chains for you to choose from.
If you want to upgrade, choose from our selection of charms which can easily be added.

Once we customize the chain length to fit your wrist, neck, or ankle, we then connect the two ends with a tiny jump ring and weld it closed.

Because it is welded, this means there is no clasp.

However, if at any point you decide you no longer wish to wear the bracelet, it can be easily clipped off. 

How much does it cost?
Currently our 14k gold chains cost between $16 - $45 per inch.
The average bracelet is 6.5" in length.

What happens if my bracelet breaks or stretches?
If your bracelet breaks, or stretches we can repair it for a fee of $15! If it is broken or stretched beyond repair, you will need to purchase a new bracelet.

If you have a permanent bracelet, necklace or anklet from a different store that needs repair, we can fix it for you.
Just email to let us know and we will help you set up a time to come in. 


What if I have to remove my bracelet?
If at any point you have to remove your jewelry for any reason (MRI, surgery, sports), it can be clipped off with scissors or clippers.
And don't worry, we can always weld it back on for our $15 spot-welding fee.

Is it dangerous?
We use a high-quality arc welding machine and an experienced welder to perform the service.
Unlike soldering, there is no flame, just a teeny-tiny spark. 

Is there an age requirement?
This procedure is safe for anyone 4 and older. 

Where is the service performed?
Love Linked Permanent Jewelry takes place at our brick & mortar boutique, Winifred Grace 5632 N. Clark Street in Chicago, just a few miles North of Wrigley Field.
