CONNECTION SYMBOLIZED IN PERMANENTLY WELDED JEWELRY
Connected™️ Permanent Jewelry
Iconic fashion designer Tom Ford once wrote "The most important things in life are the connections we make with others."
We think that says it all, and what our Connected™ Permanent Jewelry experience is all about: celebrating the connection we have with those we love and the connection we have to ourselves.
Our Connected™ experience involves permanently welding a delicate 14k gold chain onto your wrist to commemorate a special occasion, a milestone, or to celebrate love of self or of someone else.
Learn all about our experience through our detailed FAQs below--and then book your session!

WHAT IS CONNECTED?™
Connected™ is Original Hardware’s exclusive in-store service where a bracelet or anklet is welded onto your wrist or anklet by one of our jewelers, eliminating the need for a clasp. Add charms to commemorate special occasions and moments in your life.
DOES IT HURT TO PERMANENTLY WELD JEWELRY ONTO MY WRIST OR ANKLE?
Absolutely not! You’ll feel nothing but joy.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It depends on the chain you select and whether you wish to embellish your personal bracelet or anklet with additional charms. We have created pricing around three common wrist sizes: 6”, 7” and 8”. A typical 7-inch bracelet without additional charms runs from $75-$399 based on our current offerings. Additional charms are priced between $89-$199. Anklet sizes vary but are also charged by the inch.
Please note: the minimum purchase for any welded bracelet is 6”.
WHAT METALS CAN I CHOOSE FROM?
Currently we offer different chain options in 14k yellow gold—our styles are always evolving based on feedback from our customers. Additional charms are all in 14k gold and feature semi-precious gemstones and conflict-free diamonds.
DO YOU OFFER STERLING SILVER OPTIONS?
Not for this service. While we love sterling silver and use it throughout our line, a permanent sterling silver bracelet doesn’t wear the same as 14k gold in everyday life, particularly in pools and hot tubs where the copper alloy in the sterling can react and turn green. We do, however, have plenty of other sterling silver bracelet options with clasps available in our flagship store to choose from!
DO YOU OFFER PERMANENT NECKLACES?
For safety reasons, we do not offer permanent necklaces. Our chains are intentionally delicate so that if they break or get caught on something, they will give and keep you safe.
HOW PERMANENT IS MY WELDED BRACELET/ANKLET?
The chains selected for our bracelets are delicate enough that if you need to remove it, you can carefully cut it with a pair of scissors at the end of the ring that connects the chain together. If you wish to get your jewelry re-welded at a later date, we can certainly do that for a small welding fee of $25. Please book an appointment for a re-weld.
I'M AN ACTIVE PERSON. IS WELDED JEWELRY FOR ME?
Absolutely! So many active Coloradans wear their Connected bracelets and anklets with pride. But do keep in mind that a dainty chain is what it is--and a good pull can break the links. We're happy to do our best to fix it when possible, but we can't guarantee your chain will last forever. Please wear mindfully! As a custom item, sales of our permanent welded jewelry are final.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN CHAIN OR BRACELET TO BE WELDED?
No. We only offer this service with the chain we provide.
WHERE DO I GET CONNECTED™?
Our welding sessions take place at Original Hardware’s Boutique and Studio, located at 2550 W. Main Street, Littleton, CO 80120. You can book your appointment here. We recommend joining our mailing list and following us on Instagram to learn about new dates and other OH news.
DO YOU ACCOMMODATE WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS?
Yes! Most days we are available to weld your jewelry as requested. Just call us or ask at the counter.
DO I HAVE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
We'd prefer it so we can ensure the right staff is present. You can book an appointment here. Please book separate appointments for each person in your party.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Book your appointment here. There is a $50 deposit for the appointment at the time of booking, which we only use to hold the appointment. If you show up late for your appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment for another time if we aren’t able to accommodate your session within the allotted time.
HOW LONG DOES AN APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Our sessions are scheduled in 20-minute increments, giving you plenty of time to consider your choices, measure your wrist and finish the weld. Please: one session per person.
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
Yes. Anyone 18 and older are welcome to get Connected. Customers between the ages of 12 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult. We do not weld bracelets on children under the age of 12.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Please fill out and submit required waiver ahead of your appointment, which you’ll receive upon booking via the email address provided. We will not fulfill your appointment until your liability waiver is signed.
WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE MY APPOINTMENT?
Please allow 48-hour advance notice if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment otherwise your deposit will be forfeited. If you show up late for your appointment, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment for another time if we aren’t able to accommodate your session within the allotted time.
WHAT IF THE CHAIN I WANTED IS SOLD OUT?
We do our best to ensure we have enough product to accommodate our scheduled appointments, but sometimes we run out of our most popular styles. If you can’t find an alternative, we’re happy to reschedule your appointment for another day.
CAN I USE A DISCOUNT CODE I'VE RECEIVED VIA EMAIL?
No discount codes can be used with Connected.
