These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper. First the rings are silver plated and then the Purple Color is applied. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing and increase durability! They are handmade by us to our exacting specifications for our personal use and you will love how our attention to detail will make your creations stand out!

They are made from Non-tarnishing Purple 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 and no burrs.
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! We damage 1% on average when making chainmaille.
We love making chainmaille, but were unable to purchase jump rings that met our standards, so we invested in the equipment and started making them ourselves and we love them! The weight is substantial and our customers love the feel when they pick up the products.
