So, what is the difference between these 3 sterling silvers?
~Sterling Silver: This is traditional .925 sterling, made in the USA
~Argentium Sterling Silver: Non Tarnishing, this is actually .935 and is made from recycled silver in the USA. Some of the copper is replaced by germanium, an element that makes it resist tarnishing, a harder temper and less likely to scratch. These rings are a bright shiny white silver that will remain that way! An occasional rinse with a mild soap and water is all that is needed.
~Antique Sterling Silver: This starts out as traditional sterling silver but then we hand patina it/oxidized it for an instant vintage look.
This listing is for 10 SQUARE Sterling Silver jump rings in your choice of gauge and ID (Inside Diameter).They are made from SQUARE wire. They are wound on a custom mandrel and saw cut with 0.008" rotary slitting saw blade-this means that only a very small amount of the ring is removed which gives you a nice round ring with a very smooth parallel cut. These have been tumbled to be half hard which is our personal preference for most of our jewelry creations. Next they are tumble washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected.
Square wire contains 28% more volume than the equivalent gauge in Round wire.
