Make our Perfect Fit bracelets and anklets yours forever with our permanent jewelry service. With a quick zapp, we can micro laser any of our 14K gold filled chains resulting in a clasp-free accessory for everyday wear. Don't fret, while we like to name them permanent, they can be easily removed with scissors at any time and re-zapped at a future date.
What's the process?
It's easy! Choose from our selection of chain styles, get the chain perfectly fitted to you + zapp it! An appointment takes less than 10 minutes and the weld itself takes just a second.
Where and when can I get welded?
Our studio is located in the beautiful heritage Dominion Building at 207 W. Hastings Street in Vancouver, BC. Our studio is open by appointment only. You can book an appointment online here: Schedule Now
What is the cost?
Our 14K gold filled permanent bracelets range between $65cdn to $85cdn depending on chain style. Anklets are an additional $10cdn to the bracelet price.
What is the "zapp" all about?
The zapp refers to the small flash produced from the pulse of energy emitted to weld your bracelet securely closed.
Does it hurt?
Nope! The flash is all for show.
What if it breaks?
While we exclusively use 14K gold filled chains for their quality and durability, like all fine jewelry chains they are delicate and are meant to be handled with care. We take great care to ensure a robust weld to provide long-lasting wear. Excessive force, such as pulling, tugging or applying pressure on your chain can cause it to break. If your permanent jewelry does break at the weld site (small jump ring), we offer complimentary re-zaps within 6 months of purchase. We are not responsible for lost jewelry.
Can I remove my permanent jewelry?
Yes! If you need to remove your bracelet or anklet, carefully cut the jump ring (the small ring connecting the two ends of the chain) with sharp scissors. This way you won't lose any length from your perfectly fitting bracelet. When removed at the jump ring, we are able to re-zap the bracelet for you at a future date for a small fee of $10 CDN + tax. Complementary re-zaps are offered within 6 months only in event the weld breaks.
Note, your permanent jewelry does not need to be removed for airport security purposes, but may need to be removed for medical purposes such as a MRI.
Will it fade or tarnish?
Our 14K gold filled chains are tarnish and fade resistant. 14K gold filled is a solid layer of gold that is bonded together through heat and pressure to other metal alloys. This process makes it similar to solid gold in terms of durability, colour and strength. Legally, gold filled is required to contain a minimum of 5% or 1/20th gold by weight.
It won't turn colours or rub off and is waterproof making it perfect for endless wear. Over time and with exposure to various elements, the chain may begin to appear dull. This is not permanent and its brilliance can easily be restored. We recommend gently wiping with Sunshine Polishing Cloths to remove any dulling residue. Our gold filled chains are USA made.
