Permanent Jewelry Concerns


Common Questions

What is the chain made of? Majority of our chains are gold filled meaning they are 1:20 ratio gold with a high quality jewelers brass core that has been heat bonded. Silver chains are 100% Sterling Silver. This means you’re good to live your life in these chains! We expect these chains to last approximately 1-3 years, although some will need to replace it  We are currently testing using ion plated Stainless Steel as a more affordable option. These are an electroplated gold dip over stainless steel. We expect these chains to last approximately 1 year. Shower, workout, swim.

What do I need to do to keep my chain in good condition? With proper care, these chains should not turn or tarnish rapidly — Please be sure to keep all chemicals off the chain. If you use any kind of oil or lotion, spray tan, or apply chemicals like sunscreen be sure to rinse the chain off with a little water after applying. This will help protect the gold plating on the chain. Some lifestyle aspects such as a high acidity in the skin or products, sulfur (often found in water sources) or even just our own PH can cause the gold to wear away more rapidly. The Babe Standard can not be held responsible in those circumstances. If you have to get your wedding ring dipped every few years, your gold bracelet likely will only last a few months — select sterling silver, or we can add a clasp so you can wear it only on special occasions

How permanent is permanent? While the industry & social media term is permanent jewelry we like to call them welded jewelry! Nothing in life is permanent! We do the best we can to provide you a secure and high quality piece, but jewelry is inherently delicate! I have seen customers who have had permanent jewelry pieces last 3 years, & others who need to replace their piece every few months.   

What if I need to remove it? No problem. If you need to remove it for any reason stop back in our store or you can use sharp kitchen scissors to do this at home. Find the link we used to close and use your scissors on that gap we welded shut. Keep your chain in a safe place so we can reattach it when you’re ready!! Have an upcoming sports season? Many of our customers tuck their chains into sweat bands or their socks during games with no issue.

What if I change my mind? I'm so sorry to hear you've decided permanent jewelry does not fit your lifestyle but all sales are final. We are happy to add a clasp for you so you can keep your high quality bracelet. Please use the form below to request this.
