WHAT IS PERMANENT JEWELRY?
The latest jewelry trend, permanent jewelry is custom fit to your wrist or ankle and welded shut eliminating the need for a clasp. It stays on forever, or as long as you want it to!
Many people get permanent jewelry as a way to pay tribute to meaningful milestones in their life or the special bonds they share with loved ones. Think of it a the modern day friendship bracelet. Bracelets made of solid gold require no maintenance and will never tarnish.
Garden of Silver beautiful bracelets and ankle bracelets are solid 14k yellow gold and sterling silver and so light and dainty you’ll barely feel them on your wrist. We can also custom order white or rose gold for you as well.
They make perfect couples and friendship bracelets, bridesmaids gifts, sister-sister or mother-daughter bracelets.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES IT HURT TO PERMANENTLY WELD JEWELRY ONTO MY WRIST OR ANKLE?
Absolutely not! You’ll feel nothing but excitement and joy.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It depends on the chain you select and whether you wish to embellish your personal bracelet or anklet with additional charms.
We have created pricing starting with a base wrist size of 6" and then per inch for larger sizes. A typical 6-inch solid 14K gold bracelet without additional charms starts at $175. Sterling silver chains start at $45.
Additional charms are all in 14k gold, semi-precious gemstones and diamonds. Anklet sizes vary but are also charged by the inch.
Please note: the minimum purchase for any welded bracelet is 6”.
WHAT METALS CAN I CHOOSE FROM?
We offer different chain options in 14k yellow, white, rose gold & sterling silver.
Our chain styles are always evolving based on feedback from our customers.
DO YOU OFFER STERLING SILVER OPTIONS?
Yes....but be aware that a permanent sterling silver bracelet doesn’t wear the same as 14k gold in everyday life, particularly in pools and hot tubs where the copper alloy in the sterling can react and turn green. This does not happen with gold.
We do, however, have plenty of other sterling silver bracelet options with clasps and solid sterling cuffs available in our boutique to choose from!
IS IT SAFE TO WEAR A PERMANENT BRACELET?
For safety reasons, our chains are intentionally delicate so that if they break or get caught on something, they will give and keep you safe.
HOW PERMANENT IS MY WELDED BRACELET/ANKLET?
The chains selected for our bracelets are delicate enough that if you need to remove it, you can carefully cut it with a pair of scissors. If you wish to get your jewelry re-welded at a later date, we can certainly do that for a small welding fee of $25. Please book an appointment for a re-weld.
I'M AN ACTIVE PERSON. IS WELDED JEWELRY FOR ME?
But do keep in mind that a dainty chain is what it is--and a good pull can break the links. We're happy to do our best to fix it when possible, but we can't guarantee your chain will last forever. Please wear mindfully! As a custom item, sales of our permanent welded jewelry are final.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN CHAIN OR BRACELET TO BE WELDED?
Sorry, no. We only offer this service with the chain we provide.
