Give the gift of Getting Zapped!!!
It's the ultimate friendship bracelet — the original Forever Bracelet™! We recommend sending a gift card in the amount you'd like to gift! Gift cards can be redeemed at the time of zapping.
All styles come in yellow gold, select styles are also available in white and rose gold!
SOME THINGS TO NOTE:
One appointment can accommodate one person; please book separate appointments per person in your group. We always try to accommodate walk-ins!
While we cannot guarantee welding without an appointment, we can often accommodate walk-ins. You can always try your luck!
While the zapping takes just a few minutes, please expect a wait. We can only hold your spot if you are present.
Minimum welding age is 10. Anyone under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
We don't recommend this process if you have ever had an allergic reaction to 14k gold.
Prices do not include tax. Payments taken on the spot.
All sales are final.
*A Forever Bracelet™ is our classic, sparkly, 14k Sweet Nothing, Tinsel, 1976, Tiny Corsage, Diamond Pinprick, Hundred Summers, Diamond Fizz Bracelet, Petite, or Diamond Fizz Bracelet, Sparkler welded onto your wrist by a Catbird jeweler. It will have no clasp and should require no maintenance. It's there to sparkle and shine and make you happy! Though we like to think of Catbird Forever Bracelet as permanent, they can simply (but permanently) be taken off with scissors!
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?
DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
YOU'RE BOOKED UP ON THE DATE I NEED! WHAT CAN I DO?
Please check back regularly - we do get cancellations.
If you don't see availability, it means we are booked — but we add more appointments often! And we always try to accommodate walk-ins, though there may be a wait time.
We kindly ask that you do not contact our customer service team to book an appointment. What we show on the calendar is all we have available.
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 ($10 + 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!
I HAVE A CLASPED VERSION OF ONE OF THE FOREVER BRACELETS, CAN I BRING IT IN TO GET ZAPPED ON?If you have a clasped version and want to exchange it for a Forever Bracelet™ at one of our Welding locations, we would love to make that happen! Please bring it to your appointment.
CAN I BUY A FOREVER BRACELET™ FOR SOMEONE AS A GIFT?
CAN I ADD A CHARM TO MY WELDED BRACELET?
Yes! Our signature drilled diamond and star charm can get 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 other charms to bracelets at this time.
