We are beyond excited to finally announce the Melene Kent Jewels pop-up event happening at our flagship store in downtown Portsmouth on August 28th!
Founded by Christie, Melene Kent Jewels is an incredible woman-owned business that we are so excited to collaborate with, support, and welcome to our shop! Melene Kent Jewels offers permanent jewelry applications in the greater Boston area. MKJ ethically sources materials, as well as utilizes recycled metals from the US, Italy, and Germany. Additionally, all designs are handmade, fair-trade, small-batch, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.
"The concept of "permanent" jewelry is one I've adored for as long as I can recall. As a child I admired tightly fitting jade bangles that adorned beautiful women on the pages of National Geographic. The thought of growing into a piece of jewelry was captivating. Then came friendship bracelets, pins & best friend necklaces. Spotting my BFF sport her jagged half as we passed in the hallways, knowing she never took it off filled my heart. Although time has passed, my most prized possessions remain jewels acquired from family & friends, as well as during travel. Memories & love are housed in those metals and each tells a story. Jewelry at its best evokes a feeling, an extension of your spirit." - Christie
When: August 28th, 2022 from 10AM - 5PM
Where: 107 Congress Street Portsmouth, NH 03801

Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes! Due to the excitement and demand for this pop-up, appointments will be required. You can easily book online or call the store at 603-431-0335!
How long is the permanent jewelry application process?
Each application only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. However, that time does not include choosing your jewelry, so we ask that you arrive 10 minutes early to browse the selection of chains.
What is the application process like?
MJK uses micro-welding techniques that offer a precise, rapid method of bonding metals. Condensed electrical currents & a flash of heat seamlessly weld your bracelet in a matter of seconds.
What are the jewelry options?
The chains are available in:
- Sterling Silver
- 14K Gold Fill
- 14K Gold
- 14K Solid White Gold
- 18K Solid Yellow Gold
All are available in multiple styles. See here.
I know it's called "permanent" jewelry, but can it ever be removed?
Yes! Most pieces can be removed at home with wire cutters or shears. Additionally, a clasp can be added to your custom-cut chain during application if preferred.
Can I wear my bracelet through TSA screenings?
Yes! Permanent jewelry can be worn during TSA screenings & MRIs. No need to remove the jewelry!
What if I need to cancel?
We allow cancellations free of charge up until 24 hours before the event! Due to the limited availability of appointments, there will be a fee for any last-minute cancellations or no-shows.
I really want to attend, but the event is fully booked...
The demand for this event has been overwhelming. We wish we could fit each and every one of you! However, we do have a waitlist that you can put yourself on to be notified if/when any cancellation occurs.
