If you haven't found this new trend on TikTok, allow me to get you up to speed. The latest fad to sweep social media is: permanent jewelry.

You may be curious as to what "permanent jewelry" even means, but don't overthink it because it's just that; jewelry you can't take off.

Why Permanent?

Upon seeing this trend come across my TikTok page I was also curious as to why someone would want to wear a specific piece of jewelry 24/7. Turns out the answer is twofold: the first being how awkward it can be to put jewelry on yourself, especially bracelets!

The second, and this is something I constantly find myself struggling with, is the clasp of your necklace is always showing. Like I said I'm constantly fidgeting with my necklace because I'm paranoid that the unsightly clasp is showing! Both problems can be solved with permanent jewelry.

How Does It Work?

Your permanent jewelry technician will literally weld your bracelet, anklet, necklace, etc. to custom-fit your body meaning that jewelry isn't going anywhere until you're ready to take it off. When that time does come, however, you'll be able to break your chain using an extra-tough pair of heavy-duty scissors.
