These rings are a wonderful weight because the base metal is copper. First they are plated in SILVER, then the Gold and Rose Gold rings have their rich colors applied. Then they have a clear coating baked on to prevent tarnishing! They are handmade by me to my exacting specifications.
18 gauge = 1mm
3.1mm ID = 5.2mm OD
3.7mm ID - 5.7mm OD
4mm ID = 6mm OD
4.5mm ID = 6.5mm OD
5mm ID = 7mm OD
6mm ID = 8mm OD
They are made from 18 gauge Non-Tarnishing Silver Plated, Gold or Rose 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.
I love making chainmaile, but was unable to purchase jump rings that met my standards, so I invested in the equipment and started making them myself. Over 40 years engineering experience paid off! I love them! The weight is substantial and my customers love the feel when they pick up my products.
These jump rings are absolutely beautiful. They are the perfect soft rose-gold color, very shiny, and perfectly formed. Unfortunately they are the wrong AR for my specific chainmaille project, so I have to return them for a different size and gauge (my mistake, not the seller's). The seller has been very gracious and helpful in helping me to find a more suitable jump ring for my project, and was quick to respond to my plea for help.
