ETERNA JEWELRY FAQS
Our permanenet jewelry, called the Eterna collection, is a 14k gold or sterling silver chain that is custom-sized just for you and welded permanently and painlessly in a flash! Because it is welded together, the chain does not need a clasp and you don't ever have to take it off, unless you want to! It's the ultimate friendship bracelet, so fun and easy and oh-so chic! You can add any of our exclusive diamond or gemstone charms or connectors if you'd like to add a little sparkle!
We use only the finest solid 14k gold and sterling silver chains. Since we want our permanent jewelry to last forever without tarnishing, we do not use silver/gold-plated or gold-filled chains or charms. Our exclusive charms are handcrafted of solid 14k gold with real diamonds and gemstones.
Life happens! Although permanent jewelry is made to last, chains may break if they get caught on something. No need to panic- just keep your chain and I will re-weld it for you free of charge. KB Design HTX is not responsible for lost, broken or damaged jewelry. If you need to remove your permanent jewelry for any reason, just snip it at the jump ring and I will re-weld it for you when you’re ready.
Since your Eterna jewelry is solid 14k gold or sterling silver, you will not have any issues going through airport security.
You may be asked to remove your permanent jewelry for an MRI or surgery. If so, just snip it at the jump ring and save the chain, and your piece will be re-welded at no charge when you’re ready to put it back on!
Not at all! The welding process is a quick, painless flash of light!

ALL ETERNA JEWELRY SALES ARE FINAL. Since the Eterna bracelet is a custom item, it is not eligible for return. Although permanent jewelry is designed to last, it does not mean that it is unbreakable. We will ensure that your Eterna is welded securely during your appointment, but if it is caught on something it may break! I will happily re-weld your piece free of charge if necessary. Stretched or damaged chains may need to be replaced rather than repaired.
KB Design HTX is not responsible for lost, broken, or damaged jewelry. If I am notified of any issues with a charm added to your Eterna within seven days of purchase, it will be eligible for a replacement at no charge; after seven days a small repair or replacement fee will be assessed.
Minimum age for Eterna jewelry is 10 years old. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent.
All 14k gold and sterling silver is hypoallergenic and nickel free, although I don’t recommend permanent jewelry if you have ever had an allergic reaction to 14k gold or sterling silver.
We allow about 15-20 minutes per bracelet, so please let us know at the time of booking if your appointment is for more than one person so we can allot the proper amount of time.
