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.
