Perfect Weld: Permanent Jewellery by H. Samuel

What is Permanent Jewellery?

Permanent jewellery is jewellery that doesn't come off. Instead of closing with a clasp, a chain is welded around your wrist. This creates a seamless bracelet design that can’t be removed easily and is meant to be worn all the time. But don’t worry, if you do change your mind, permanent jewellery can still be removed simply by cutting it off.
