Three CT Generations Forever Linked with Permanent Jewelry

The popularity of permanent jewelry is skyrocketing in Connecticut as the summer season winds down. Bridal parties, families hosting reunions, or BFF’s heading off to college can remain connected with welded-on jewelry. In fact, Jane Casey of Colchester recently brought her daughters Mia Hawlk of Portland and Shannon Santostefano of Colchester, along with her granddaughters Dylan, Payten, and Aria to Baribault Jewelers in Glastonbury, one of the first jewelers in the state to offer the14K-gold bracelets. The three generations wanted a visual symbol of their everlasting love.

“Since launching our B Linked permanent jewelry collection last month, we have been inundated with appointments,” shares Christina Baribault-Ortiz of Baribault Jewelers and co-founder of The Power to B jewelry collection. “We’ve fitted everyone from couples, to mothers & daughters, to three generations of families with this beautiful memento of their lasting bond.”

Baribault-Ortiz explains the simple process starts by booking an appointment in advance online. Group discounts are available for bachelorette parties, birthdays, bridal showers, etc. Then choose your favorite from one of four styles. The chain will then be measured to your wrist and painlessly welded shut using high heat. Best of all, the jewelry can be easily removed at any time by cutting it off yourself with a pair of scissors.

Baribault-Ortiz also notes that the style trend stole the spotlight at the recent star-studded MTV Video Music Awards, the Emmy Awards and Fall Fashion Week from September 9-14, 2022 in New York City. TikTok fashionistas Victoria Jameson and Vienna Sky recently garnered over 160 million views using #permanentjewelry #permanentbracelet hashtags.

B Linked permanent jewelry ranges in price from $20-45 per inch. If yellow gold is not your style, custom orders for 14k white gold are available since silver does not wear as well over time. The minimum welding age is 10. Anyone under 18 will be required to have a parent or guardian’s present.

“We are confident that permanent jewelry will continue to grow as an alternative to a tattoo or piercing to commemorate a special occasion or as a lasting connection to a loved one,” said Baribault-Ortiz.
