Does Permanent Jewelry Hurt? Debunking Myths and Fears about the Process

When considering a piece of permanent jewelry, whether it's a bracelet, necklace, or anklet, one question that may come to mind is: Does permanent jewelry hurt? It's an understandable concern. After all, the term "permanent" can make one think of other long-lasting alterations like tattoos or piercings. Let's set the record straight: getting permanent jewelry does not hurt, and it's far removed from anything like a tattoo or a piercing.

The Process of Permanent Jewelry

The creation of permanent jewelry involves a process called micro-welding. This involves using a very small, controlled flash of heat to bond the ends of your chosen gold filled or sterling silver chain together, creating a seamless and elegant piece of jewelry. The flash of heat is so brief and precise that it doesn't touch your skin at all.

Safety Precautions and Comfort

At Bonded By Gigi, the comfort and safety of our clients is our top priority. At your permanent jewelry appointment, you will be provided safety glasses to protect your eyes and a leather patch to safeguard your skin during the welding process. Moreover, our permanent jewelry welding specialists are highly trained and experienced, ensuring that the welding is done with utmost precision.

Not a Piercing or a Tattoo

It's essential to understand that permanent jewelry is not a piercing, tattoo, or anything that is embedded in your skin. It is simply a piece of jewelry that is custom-fitted and welded around your wrist, ankle, or neck. This means that there are no needles, no invasive procedures, and certainly no pain involved.

So, does permanent jewelry hurt? The simple answer is no. The process is quick, painless, and completely safe, with rigorous safety measures in place to ensure your comfort throughout.

Choosing to wear a piece of permanent jewelry from Bonded By Gigi is choosing a unique, luxurious, and pain-free way to express your personal style. It's an experience that's as comfortable as it is rewarding, leaving you with a stunning piece of jewelry that you'll never need, or want, to take off.
