Permanent Jewelry

A Forever Bracelet™ is a classic, sparkly solid 14k gold bracelet custom fit and welded around your wrist by a Catbird jeweler. We are the originals, and have been zapping since 2017! Since then, we have perfected the art of the zap and have welded over 150,000 Forever Bracelets! Personalize yours with charms, initials, and diamonds. It will have no clasp, creating a seamless piece that is truly yours. It's there to sparkle and shine and make you happy! Come on in and get zapped!! No appointment necessary! 

 

“Each chain is sized to fit perfectly,
so you quickly forget you are wearing it.”

WELDING FAQs

  • WHAT IS A FOREVER BRACELET™? WHAT DOES GETTING ZAPPED MEAN??

    Zapping is where we custom fit and weld a solid gold bracelet directly on to you. This means that your Forever Bracelet™ is custom fit to your wrist, with no clasp, and should require no maintenance. It's there to sparkle & shine and make you happy! Though we like to think of Catbird Forever pieces as permanent, they can simply (but permanently) be taken off with scissors.
    'ZAP' refers to the flash you see when you get a Forever Bracelet™ welded onto your wrist.
  • WHERE AND WHEN CAN I GET ZAPPED?

    You can book an appointment in our NYC, LA, Boston, and DC stores right here! More locations coming soon. 
    We are also available for private events both on and off site. Tell us more about your event here
  • DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

    We encourage appointments but walk-ins are always welcome. Please note there may be a short wait time. Please book separate appointments for parties of 2 or more. 
  • YOU'RE BOOKED UP ON THE DATE I NEED! WHAT CAN I DO?

    Check out our other locations or simply walk in. We're typically able to accommodate all walk-ins with a short wait time. 
  • DOES IT HURT?

    Not at all! Despite the flash, getting zapped does not mean physically zapped :) We would never do that to you! It’s just a little thrill. :)
  • CAN I BUY THE BRACELET IN ADVANCE?

    Nope! You'll choose your style when you come in.
  • WHAT IF I NEED TO REMOVE THE BRACELET? CAN I GET IT RE-ZAPPED ON LATER?

    Yes! If you need to remove the bracelet for any reason, we recommend carefully cutting it (ideally at the small ring that connects the two ends of the chain, to maintain the integrity of the chain) with scissors, and if you wish to get it welded back on at a later date we can certainly do that for a small welding fee ($20 + tax)!
  • WILL THIS GIVE ME PROBLEMS GOING THROUGH THE AIRPORT?

    Nope! We have travelled far and wide with our Forever bracelets and have never had a problem. Generally, delicate jewelry never needs to be removed when going through airport security.
  • WILL YOU EVER MAKE FOREVER BRACELETS IN SILVER?

    Sadly no! Silver is far less durable than gold, and will not stand the test of time that we expect of our Forever Bracelets™. We do offer our the Diamond Pinprick, Tinsel, and a Zapping exclusive Sweet Nothing style in white gold for all of the silver fans out there!
  • WHAT ABOUT FOREVER ANKLETS OR NECKLACES?

    After some rigorous testing, we have decided that necklaces, chokers, and anklets are not a great option for welding, and we only want to offer you that which will truly wear wonderfully!
  • CAN I BUY A FOREVER BRACELET™ FOR SOMEONE AS A GIFT?

    We recommend buying a gift card in the amount you'd like to gift!

    Welding is subject to sales tax.
    Styles are subject to availability, but we usually have good stock!

    Can't get welded? All Catbird bracelets come in multiple sizes for the perfect fit!

  • CAN I ADD A CHARM TO MY WELDED BRACELET?

    Yes! Our menu of signature Forever Charms can be added to any welded bracelet. More options to come! Since Forever Bracelets™ are always worn and never taken off, we are very cautious about what charms will work well for the duration and do not zap third party charms to bracelets at this time.
  • CAN I GET ZAPPED IF I HAVE A PACEMAKER?

    There has not been in-depth testing in regards to how the welding process could potentially interact with a pacemaker. Out of an abundance of caution, we advise not to get Forever Bracelets. We do however have clasped versions of most our welded style bracelets!
  • WHAT IS THE AGE REQUIREMENT FOR GETTING ZAPPED?

    You have to be 10 years old to get a Forever Bracelet™. Everyone under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
