*A Forever Bracelet is our classic, sparkly, 14k Sweet Nothing, Tinsel, 1976, Tiny Corsage, Diamond Pinprick, or Hundred Summers 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?We currently are welding out of our Soho shop at 253 Centre Street. Williamsburg coming soon, March 2022! You can book an appointment here.

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 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.
