Q: Can I get a permanent anklet or necklace?
A: We only offer bracelets.

Q: Can I take it off?
A: Since the chain is welded on, there is no clasp and therefore is meant to "permanently" stay on! However, if for any reason you want or need to - you can remove it easily at home with a pair of scissors!

Q: Will it be a problem with airport security?
A: No! TSA does not ask you to remove fine jewelry when going through security.

Q: Will it really stay on forever?
A: While the intention for a Bonded bracelet is to be a permanent piece of jewelry - there are external factors such as your lifestyle and job that will determine the length of time it will last. We are only using chain that we know can withstand everyday wear and tear, however it is still delicate jewelry! And if anything does happen - we are happy to repair it to the best of our ability. 

Q: Does it hurt?
A: No! There is no flame or heat involved in this process. Just a quick and painless zap that's over before you know it.

Q: What do I do if my bracelet breaks?
If you need your bracelet repaired, please text us at +1 708-759-0200 to schedule a repair. We'll repair your bracelet for free within 6 months, after that repair cost ranges between $15-$25.

Q: Can I bring in my own chain or bracelet to be welded on?
A: We only offer this service with the chain we provide.
