What is Permanent Jewellery?

What is permanent jewellery? Learn about the different types of permanent adornment and why it can symbolise connections and express individuality.

Permanent jewellery is more than just an accessory; it's a unique and lasting expression of individuality, relationships, and personal milestones. Unlike traditional jewellery that can be taken on and off using a clasp, permanent jewellery is designed to be worn continuously, often symbolising enduring connections and timeless memories.

The Essence of Permanent Jewellery

At its core, permanent jewellery refers to pieces that are designed to be worn for an extended period, sometimes even for life. This can include items like welded bracelets, anklets, or necklaces, as well as other permanent adornments such as tattoos and piercings. The idea is to create a piece that becomes a part of you, symbolising an unbreakable bond or a significant personal journey.

Types of Permanent Jewellery

  1. Welded Jewellery: One of the most popular forms of permanent jewellery involves welding. Welded bracelets, anklets, or necklaces are tailored to fit you perfectly and the link is welded once fitted, creating a seamless piece that lacks a clasp. This process ensures the jewellery stays on until it's intentionally removed, symbolising an unbroken connection.

  2. Tattoos: Tattoos can be considered another form of permanent jewellery. They are a permanent form of body art that can be deeply personal, symbolising everything from important life events and relationships to individual beliefs and identities.

  3. Piercings: Permanent body piercings, such as ear, nose, or navel piercings, also fall under the umbrella of permanent jewellery. Once healed, these piercings become a lasting part of your body, often adorned with meaningful jewellery pieces.

The Process

Creating permanent jewellery often involves a collaborative process between the client and the artist or jeweller. For welded jewellery, the piece is measured and tailored to the wearer’s wrist, ankle, or neck and then welded closed, ensuring a perfect fit. The process involves the use of a state-of-the-art welding machine which has been developed especially for this purpose. It emits a spark, using electricity, to weld the chain together. 

The Significance

Permanent jewellery carries a depth of meaning that traditional jewellery often cannot match. You can personalise your permanent jewellery with charms that can symbolise significant moments or memories. It can represent a variety of things:

  • Commitment: Many couples choose permanent jewellery, like welded rings or matching tattoos, to symbolize their enduring love and commitment.
  • Friendship: Friends may opt for matching permanent bracelets or small tattoos as a token of their lifelong bond.
  • Personal Milestones: Significant life events, such as graduations, births, or personal achievements, can be commemorated with a piece of permanent jewellery, serving as a constant reminder of those important moments.

The Benefits

  • Durability: Unlike traditional jewellery, permanent jewellery is designed to withstand daily wear and tear, offering lasting beauty and resilience.
  • Meaningful Connection: Permanent jewellery often carries deep personal significance, fostering a sense of connection and continuity.
  • Unique Expression: Each piece of permanent jewellery is unique to the wearer, providing a highly personal form of expression that reflects individual style and values.

Conclusion

Permanent jewellery is a powerful way to express individuality and commemorate significant relationships and milestones. Whether through welded pieces, tattoos, or piercings, these enduring adornments become a part of you, symbolising the timeless connections and memories that define your life. Embrace the concept of permanent jewellery and let each piece tell your unique story.
