100 Antique Silver or Antique Gold Jump Rings 16 gauge 8mm OD - Best Commercially Made

These hefty 16 gauge 8mm OD (outside diameter) Antique Silver or Antique Gold Jump Rings are perfect for so many jewelry and craft projects. Each listing is for 100 and I keep loads of them in stock because they have a great vintage look, are sturdy and are economically priced!

16 gauge = 1.29mm
8mm OD = 5.4mm ID approximately

You choose all silver or all gold or a mix.

♥These are the best commercially made rings I have found. Here is why I like them:

The base metal is brass so they have a nice weight and feel AND they are strong.

They do not contain nickel or lead and I spot check them to make sure. They have always tested 100%.

Antique Gold is frequently a good match for Vintage Bronze, Antique Brass and Vintaj colored findings.

Price! These are a great value.

♥So, what is the downside?

Gauge and diameter may vary from batch to batch and occasionally ring to ring.

These are machine made, so there will be a SMALL NOTCH at the joint and the joint is not parallel. A large blade is used to cut them which results in a large KURF-- what's that? Think of that pile of saw dust under a table saw. The same thing happens when jump rings are cut. The kurf is the portion of the jump ring that is removed/lost and turned into metal dust. This can change the shape of the ring and contribute to a joint that will not close 100%.

Sizes and finishes are limited.
