Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a clasp with my jewelry?

Yes! If you do not want the jewelry to be welded on and semi-permanent, you can absolutely get a clasp added to any piece.

Can I look at the spark when the weld happens?

Your safety is most important. We ask that you do not look directly at the spark to protect your eyes. We have a pair of Shade 5 glasses that you can wear or you can watch the weld through your phone camera.

How can I get semi-permanent Jewelry form Link+Bonded?

You can schedule an appointment at our studio (L+B Studio) located in Mt. Pleasant at https://calendly.com/linkandbonded or visit our Instagram or Facebook Pages to see our monthly calendar of pop-ups. You can also book a private party!

How old do you have to be?

Link+Bonded does not recommend welding on children under the age of 12; however, the parent has the right to override our recommendation. Consent waivers must be completed for that child.

With that being said, if a child is under the age of 5, Link+Bonded will not weld a jump ring closed. The jump ring will close, keeping it clasp-less, but it will not be welded.

The pricing for children 12 and under includes a clasp.

Link+Bonded will also not weld a necklace on a child age 12 or younger. The jump ring will close, keeping it clasp-less, but it will not be welded.

My chain broke - what do I do?

If your piece breaks at the weld point, L+B will offer a complimentary re-weld. If the chain breaks and it's a manufacturing issue/concern within 60 days of purchase, we will make it right. If the break is due to normal wear and tear, we can try and repair the chain for a fee or another purchase would need to be made as L+B is not responsible.

What are your prices?

Pricing varies depending on the chain and metal selected. Price ranges are below:

+ Bracelets $70 - $90
+ Anklet $75 - $105
+ Necklace $125 - $145
+ Bracelets and Anklets for Children up to age 12 range between $40 and $50, and includes a clasp.

What if I want or need to remove my jewelry?

You have a couple of options!
You can either cut the jump ring (where the weld was competed) with scissors - keep the chain and L+B will re-weld it when you're ready or we will remove the chain at no cost, we can also add a clasp for a small fee.

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling Silver is an alloy of Silver, containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals. Sterling Silver is harder than pure silver and more suitable for jewelry and everyday wear. In fact, wearing Sterling Silver everyday (like with semi-permanent) it prevents buildup of tarnish and dust on the metal. 925 Sterling Silver is also best for sensitive skin.

What is Gold Filled?

To be considered Gold Filled, the gold layer must be at least 5% of the total weight. L+B uses 14k Gold Filled, which means 14k gold is bonded to a base metal, such as brass. From a quality standpoint, Gold Filled is second in line from solid gold, and because of its strength of being mixed with other metals Gold Filled is a great choice for semi-permanent jewelry.

What is semi-permanent jewelry?

Custom fit jewelry that is hand welded and designed by you! It's welding together providing a clasp free piece of jewelry with a seamless finish. Classy and dainty for every day wear.

Why do you call it Semi-Permanent when others call it Permanent Jewelry?

Permanent is defined as lasting or intended to last or remain unchanged indefinitely. This jewelry, while sustainable metals are used such as 14k gold filled and 925 sterling silver and welded together, it can be easily removed with scissors. This jewelry can also be changed, resized, redesigned, etc. We call it semi-permanent because it's permanent for as log as your lifestyle wants or permits.
