Permanent jewelry has really been trending lately, thanks to social media. It's a great way to show a special bond with a friend or loved one.
The process is simple. You arrange a meeting with a jeweler and just pick out the style of chain, or chains in my case, that you like best.
So, essentially, you pick the style and whether you want any charms to go with it, and your jeweler will then measure you to make sure it’s the perfect fit.
I connected with an entrepreneur in my hometown who made our bracelets–a total of four–for a little more than $200.
Catbird’s options start around $100 and go up to over $300 for thicker options or those with diamonds embedded. It truly depends on who you hire and what you prefer.
Most permanent jewelry is made from 10K to 14K gold and should not set off a metal detector any more than your other jewelry.
One benefit of doing this instead of a tattoo is that it is much easier to negate if things go south in the relationship.
