What Is Permanent Jewelry? And Is It Right For You?

Permanent jewelry is a type of jewelry that is welded together by a professional jeweler and is not meant to be taken off. This type of jewelry is often seen as a symbol of commitment, as it is a permanent fixture on the wearer's body. Common types of permanent jewelry include bracelets, anklets, and sometimes necklaces. While permanent jewelry is not something relatively new, it has been trending recently on TikTok. The main benefit of this type of jewelry is that you always have it on you no matter what. If you are the type of person to only wear the same pieces of jewelry, this might be the type of jewelry for you. 

However, there are several downsides to wearing permanent jewelry that should be considered before making the decision to get it.

One of the most significant downsides to wearing permanent jewelry is that it doesn't allow for people to switch up their style. With permanent jewelry, you are committing to one specific look, which can be limiting for people who enjoy changing up their style regularly. This can be especially problematic if you are someone who likes to wear different jewelry for different occasions or outfits.

Another downside to wearing permanent jewelry is that it can be uncomfortable to wear all day and night. While jewelry that is not meant to be taken off may seem like a convenient option, it can also be a hassle to wear all the time. Depending on the type of jewelry and where it is located on the body, it can be uncomfortable to wear while sleeping, showering, or participating in certain activities. 

One of the biggest dangers of wearing permanent jewelry is that wearers need to be mindful of the tightness of the jewelry. The human body swells and shrinks in relation to weather and hydration, as well as other conditions such as pregnancy or weight gain/loss. If permanent jewelry is too tight, it can cause injury to the wearer. This can be especially problematic if the jewelry is located in areas where the skin is sensitive or prone to irritation, such as the wrist, neck, or ankles.

It's important for wearers of permanent jewelry to stay alert and be aware of any changes in their body that may affect the fit of their jewelry. For example, if someone experiences swelling in their hands due to heat or excessive salt intake, they may need to adjust the fit of their permanent ring or bracelet. Additionally, if someone is pregnant or has gained weight, they may need to have their jewelry adjusted to ensure that it remains comfortable and does not cause injury.

Finally, another downside to wearing permanent jewelry is that it requires going to a jeweler to get it removed or put back on. If you decide that you no longer want to wear your permanent jewelry, you will need to go through the process of having it removed by a professional. This can be time-consuming, especially if you are someone who likes to change up their jewelry frequently. You can always try removing it yourself, as permanent jewelry is often very thin and dainty, but after you cut off your permanent jewelry you can't use it again until you visit a jeweler.

Despite the downsides of permanent jewelry, there are plenty of alternatives that offer similar benefits without the drawbacks. One such alternative is solid gold jewelry. Solid gold jewelry is made from real gold, and it can be worn every day without fear of it tarnishing or losing its color. Additionally, solid gold jewelry is versatile and can be paired with a variety of different styles and outfits. Unlike permanent jewelry, which is welded together and cannot be easily removed or adjusted, 14k solid gold jewelry can be worn in a variety of ways and can be easily swapped out to match different outfits or occasions. This allows you to change up your look without committing to a single piece of jewelry. One piece of jewelry that is adjustable can be stacked in different ways and make many different types of accessorizing combinations possible.
