100 Custom Handmade Non Tarnishing Gold Colored Jump Rings 20 gauge You Pick Diameter
These made to order non-tarnishing 20 gauge Gold Colored jump rings are perfect for chainmaille artisans and all jewelry artisans who are looking for something better than what is available commercially! They are measured ID (inside diameter).
These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper. First they are colored in gold. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications.
20 gauge = .8mm
20 gauge 2mm ID
20 gauge 3mm ID
20 gauge 4mm ID
Suggestions for using these size rings:
~~2mm is ideal for small linking rings
~~3mm is a perfect size for Byzantine, Barrel Weave, 2-into-2 chainmaille weaves and is also a good size to connect charms and small pendants.
~~4mm is great for more open versions of 2-into-2, European 4-in-1, and mobius flowers.
They are made from 20 gauge Non-tarnishing Gold Colored Wire. They are wound on a 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.
Next they are tumble washed with detergent and hot water and dried at low temperature; each are hand inspected. Special tools are not required to work with these! I damage 1% on average when making chainmaille.
I love making chainmaile, but was unable to purchase jump rings that met my standards, so we invested in the equipment and started making them ourself. We love them! The weight is substantial and the customers love the feel when they pick up the products.

The color is beautiful! They have the look of real gold...without the high price. Very easy to make the closures look seamless. But that's not a surprise...always the highest quality here!
